At least 27 people are dead--including 18 children--after a gunman believed to be a student´s father opened fire today at an elementary school in Connecticut. Police were dispatched to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after they received reports of shots being fired by a gunman in one of the kindergarten classrooms of the school at 9.35am. There are preliminary reports a student´s 20-year-old father was the shooter and that he went from classroom to classroom firing at students and teachers with a .223-caliber rifle. An entire classroom of students is unaccounted for and frantic parents are desperately seeking information

Horrible tragedy. I can´t imagine what the parents are going through.

Just like some of the readers have been talking abour racially profiling arab muslims at airport, we need to start racial profiling of young white males in their 20s-30s at all schools and malls.

Search Google for major shootings in the USA… search the shooters name…. there are wackos of every size, shape, color and ethnicity… The school shooters are almost all young white males in their 20’s-30s.

I believe in responsible gun ownership… but too many crazies out there and unfortunately you and I have to put up with the inconvenience …. Just my two cents.

Itis a good thing that schools are "gun free zones." Imagine if one of the teachers had had a weapon (and the training)for defense; someone might have gotten hurt!

drudge just reported a knife slashing in China, I think the number envolved is 20.

Now, these two event happening at the same time provides proof that insane people use any agent to accomplish their horrific deeds. It isn´t confined to any one object.

Still too early to know exactly what happened, either the body count or the nature of the perp(s).

But not too early for the usual suspects to start blaming the NRA and "lax" gun laws.

Very sad all around.

I would be curious to see how many of these young white male shooters are addicted to violent video games. I think they get bored with "pretend" shooting and they want to see what it would feel like to shoot at live targets (humans). So very sad at any time of year, but especially right before Christmas.

rechecked the Drudge article. Twenty two

How is it that such things occur more and more often in America, yet many people cannot or will not admit that something is very wrong with our country. The left will blame this on gun ownership, but people do not go out and kill innocent children unless their souls have been overtaken by evil. God save us from the evil one.

With ultra-violent video games and Tarantino-style movies, our natural, instinctive revulsion to blood, torn and mangled bodies, etc. is being "programmed" out of us. Particularly true of people who are already mentally unstable.

What used to be "unthinkable" is now easily enacted with video games and transferring that "experience" to the real world is not that big of a leap to some people.

Another profoundly sad tragedy - it is less of a gun problem than it is a culture problem. Americans need to sit back and take a good look at themselves and the moral turpitude of society - we see the results of the ´me´ generation daily thrust in our faces. IMHO,it is past time for the pendulum to swing back and leave the madness of this hedonistic society in ashes.

If you have children STILL in a public school you are a brain-dead fool or extremely selfish to risk your kids mental and physical well-being for a dual income.

It is a horrible place to raise your kids and gets worse with each day.

Yes and don´t forget the fact that people are no longer taught to respect life or others. Everything today is me, me me me me!

Guns have nothing to do with the killing. The guy could have killed even more of the children with a bomb (which is actually easier to get one´s hands on than a gun). I am so sick of the lefties...they are going to use this as another campaign to outlaw guns or restrict them so much that nobody can get them (except the elite in power)

All over America today people are praying, ´dear God, don´t let this be a black man, dear God, don´t let this be a white Christian, dear allah, don´t let this be a muslim.´
When the vast majority of those groups are not violent but what we need to do is start banning all the violent movies, TV shows, video games. All of us here see this daily on our TV sets. Have any of you ever watched Criminal MInds? How they come up with the most insane plots showing the most horrific murders is beyond me. I stopped watching that show after just a few months. I see advertisements for other shows that show a pornography of violence. How does this affect the minds of young people?
We have successfully banned God from the marketplace and have replaced HIm with the glorification of sex and violence. We have lost our souls.

Oh by the way, have you folks seen some of the stuff that is in movies nowadays? In both full feature movies and in short films. The extreme gore and evil that is portrayed in these so-called horror or crime movies is beyond anything imaginable. I saw a film where this doctor´s sick obsession was indulged. He paid a prostitute to cut off his body parts so he could eat them. And then the kid saw it all and kept a finger (to start the sick process over again in his life). I mean this stuff is beyond sick.

Romans 1: 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness.

Unless there is great turning to our Creator, I fear we in the USA, and the World, are going to see more and more of the tragic results of "debased minds."

I haven´t yet seen the report that it was the kindergarten teacher´s son - but interesting to note that last week a young man murdered his father, an instructor at Casper College in Wyoming, and now this. Copy cat? (Well in Casper the father´s girlfriend was murdered first with a gun; then jr. used a bow and arrow on his dad).

As I said in the first thread down below, I am absolutely sickened. I spend a lot of time in elementary classrooms and to think that in a nice quiet neighborhood, in a school with decent security, that such horror can ensue.

As you can imagine my colleagues at the college here are knee-jerk blaming the NRA/gun lobby. No thought given to the fact that we have made it near impossible to teach traditional moral/religious values, that the family is no longer considered the building block of a strong healthy civilization, that there are no restrictions on the gratuitous violence and sex that our youngest children are exposed to, the glorification of the drug and ghetto and gang culture- and how all of that might have created a monster who can kill a classroom of innocent 5 year-olds.

No doubt we will hear soon enough about the mental health of the shooter. We´ll get all the details. But for now I am shaken to the core. This isn´t supposed to happen in America.

I would like to know if this guy was on Adderall or Ritalin. I´m convinced there´s a link. All the school shootings in the ´90s involving young men or adolescent boys had one thing in common: the use of Adderall, Ritalin or other ADHD drugs.

How can you protect your children when their teacher´s own child is the attacker? She may have been a wonderful teacher, but the children in her class were placed in danger because someone in her family was violent.

Pray for the parents of these murdered children.

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws.

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
