    Very sad thing..what is going on? I know this will embolden the liberals who believe in gun control. What are we to do on this issue, there seems to be no good answer. We cannot outlaw guns, but how do we (as a country) control the idiots who do stuff like this. I know the answer is they need Jesus but you know what I mean on this. What should we do right now to stop this craziness? Do we put guards at all schools and malls and businesses?

    It will be interesting to hear why these two shooters did what they did?

    My heart is with the families. I don't care about gun laws right now. Babies were murdered in cold blood. I just can't begin to grasp this....

    Those poor frightened children! My prayers are with all involved in this ordeal. I cannot imagine losing a child this way right before Christmas. :tear:

    I just heard about it a little while ago. I don't want to turn on the TV, as I know what I'll see. The news media is going to play this to the hilt. I don't want to be a peeping tom looking at every tear that's shed. Nor, endless talking heads giving their opinions, speculations, milking this horror for everything it's worth according to their standards.

    Right now, all I want to do is sit here, in a quiet place, and pray for all involved. To let the Holy Spirit convey what I don't have words to say for those children, their families, and even the demon posessed soul of the man who did this.

    It could be any of us. It is fruitless to try and make sense of this kind of thing, because there is no sense to be made. The only constant is for the survivors, life must go on. As impossibly cruel, unending, and empty the future looks, they have to face it.

    Two weeks before Christmas. I hurt for those families.

    I don't even know what to say. I dropped my four year old grandson at pre-school this morning just like parents and grandparents in Newton did. AJ made it home safely to Mom and Dad - 20 children in Newton did not.

    I agree, I think I will not watch the talking heads. Prayer is what they will need and God's strength.

    Just yesterday a good friend and I were having a discussion on the problems of guns in this country. I remarked we had a problem and I didn't have the answer or a solution. My friend was adament in his belief that we don't have a gun problem. This IMO is part of the problem, our refusal to admit that we have a gun problem.

    We don't have a gun problem, we have a "lack of respect for life" problem.

    I strangely find myself siding with liberals at this moment. Why do we need assault weapons in the hands of citizens? I know guns don't kill people, people do. But then again I guess he could have made a bomb and done worse damage. I'm really shaking my head on this gun issue. Without a radical spiritual transformation, individuals will continue do to such evil.

    Does anyone believe as I do that ever since we (America) have taken God out our public schools and removed anything Christian from the public image, that we maybe have turned our backs on God and the result is as in the days of Isreal/Judea in OT times.

    This fellow could have killed these persons with a knife, or beaten them to death with a hammer or tire iron. He could have strangled them with his hands or beaten them to death with his fists. If you really want to kill someone it is not difficult, especially little children.

    This fellow had family problems, from what I understand he killed his father, and then went to the school and killed his mother, then her students. This fellow had real issues.

    The problem is that to the media and liberals, EVERY gun is an assault weapon.

    I hear you, but do you really think this guy would have killed 27 by stabbing or choking them to death. I don't think so, the automatic gun he had allowed him to kill much more than if he not had it. IMO

    Yes you are right and thus there lies the delimna. If you start a ban on assualt weapons the loony libs will have everything taken away including pea shooters.

    No, guns are very dangerous and make it very easy to kill multiple persons, but if you want to kill, you are going to kill.

    What I am surprised at is that he got in the school with guns, most schools are locked. Now, I understand his mother was a teacher at the school and one of the persons killed, so perhaps they were accustomed to allowing this fellow in the school. That will come out I am sure.

    Unless you can identify crazy people and their propensity for violence, you can't stop it, or even slow it down.

    Imagine the carnage if he had used a homemade bomb. How do you stop that?

    Kill crazy people are going to kill until they are killed.

    He didn't use an assault type weapon.

    Got a question that actually pertains to what happened?

    I must completely agree. There are no words.

    Students heard me gasp and heard me whisper to another adult, so they asked what was going on. I just redirected them to focus on the work in front of them. And that was that. The other adult and I just were in shock and said "I know, wow" and that was the extent of any discussion on it.

    I did come home and look up the cost of bullet proof vests. They're expensive.

    You are exactly right. They are getting their ratings off the heart aches of those parents and families. What a collection of slobs. The mindset infuriates me. It is like the idiot driving down the road that slows down to observe an accident that has nothing to do with them, and all they are doing is holding up traffic as they crane their neck around. Wish one of them would snap.
