NEWTOWN, CONN -- Twenty-nine people including 22 children were massacred in a horrific bloodath at the Sandy Hook Elementary School Friday morning, a source with knowledge of the investigation tells Hearst Connecticut Newspapers. The Associated Press is reporting that 27 people including 18 children were killed. The gunman is dead, state police have confirmed. CNN identified him as Ryan Lanza, 24. Lanza is a former Newtown resident who lived in Hoboken, N.J. According to his Facebook page, Lanza studied at Quinnipiac University in Hamden. Police in Sandy Hook are at a house on Yogananda Street and have surrounded

Why is this happening? Who is programming these people to do this insane deeds? No rational person would intentionally murder children. Not to mention the fact that Conn already has some of the strictest firearm laws in the nation. Of course there will be an attempted outcry for more gun control laws. Never mind that the existing excessive regulations have failed. Expect the news media to shrill. Still on a national level, I expect it to continue to fall on disinterested ears.

Credit where credit is due. Kudos to Jay Carney for saying, when egged on by the media, that today is not the day to discuss gun control. I´m sure the WH will not let a crisis or tragedy "go to waste", but at least for today they are behaving like human beings.

Lanza studied at Quinnipiac University? Well, we know for sure he´s not in the Tea Party. I´m sure the media will show restraint and not jump to conclusions. /s

That aside, prayers for the victims and their loved ones. I´ve lost people close to me at this time of year, and it´s truly difficult.

Hollywood is the blame for all of the mass murders that are happening. Every movie they release glorify murder. Where do you think these basket cases are getting their ideas about taking people out on a mass scale?

The largest mass murders in the US were not carried out with guns. 1927, Michigan, a school blown up with explosives, 44 dead. The Oklahoma Federal building --- I forget how many dead. 911, 3,000 people killed with airplanes. If you look hard enough you will discover that this kind of evil has been around a long time and pre-dates movies and video games in many cases.

A 2010 grad of Quinnipiac University? Based on the "professional journalist" reports over the last hour or so, he "was a father of a student" - made up by "professional journalists" likely based on a police statement of a family connection...

...so should a poster here ask if this was a Beslan-copycat, or ask if the perp was from a teachers union family, or what election 2012 bumper stickers were on his car, or who he volunteered for in the election, or what party he is a registered member of, or what his screen name on the Daily Kos was, or if he had converted to another religion, or what his degree from Quinnipiac was in, why that would be "professional journalism" too, right?

The killers were brothers and apparently they killed their mother who had connections to the school. If I hear ´this is a quiet neighborhood´ again, like this only happens in bad neighborhoods.

We have an orchestrated infestation creeping into the minds of people prompting them to do crazy things. I think this is being done deliberately.

This is what happens when you shove God out of one´s culture.

You end up with an entire generation that thinks life sprung from nothing, for nothing, and therefore the meaning of life is nothing at all. From nothing to nothing. Take God out of the equation and that is the residue you are left with when it is all boiled down.

When you remove God, you remove morality. No case can be made for anything moral absent something unchanging that is outside of ourselves.

There should be a nationwide vigil and people should be on their knees begging God to forgive this country that has forsaken him. This is something republicans and democrats should do together and it should be led by our president (I know, wishful thinking).

Those who try to make this about gun control are lazy and opportunistic. Guns have been in the hands of people for centuries and this is a recent trend. Why? Guns are not the problem, something else is turning people to such wickedness.

#17, yes a nationwide vigil would be good. But why does it have to be nationwide? I am grateful to God that my small prayer group was already planning to meet this evening. We will be praying for God´s Spirit to move through this tragedy. I will be praying for God´s forgiveness for whatever sins I have committed that may have contributed to something like this happening. The answer to a tragedy like this is to look within ourselves, to ask God what we could have done to decrease the chance of this happening.

"State Senate Majority Leader Martin M. Looney, D-New Haven, a gun-control advocate, said Friday that a bill failed last year that would banned the possession of ammunition among people prohibited from having guns. "They are more restrictive than many states," Looney said in the Capitol.

Connecticut´s gun laws are tougher than the national average. Consumers need permits to buy handguns. Assault-style weapons are banned as is the possession of bullet-proof vests. Another law, adopted about 10 years ago, lets neighbors who are suspicious of the activities of other neighbors to file police reports. Also, people with protective orders filed against them are prohibited from owning firearms."

I guess that all these restrictions are working!

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

Police say a high school vice principal who had been rescued from a sinking South Korean ferry has been found hanging from a tree. The news of the death came Friday as rescuers scrambled to find hundreds of people still missing from the ferry and feared dead. The passengers included 325 second-year students from Danwon High School heading to a southern island on a four-day trip. The school vice principal found hanging Friday was identified as Kang Min-kyu, the lead guide for the school trip. No suicide note was found near the site, but Yonhap news agency reported that Kang

However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed.

The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars.

(Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine?

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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. 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. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
