CNN, by Staff

Original Article

Twenty-six people -- 20 students and six adults -- were shot and killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14. Details continue to emerge about what precisely happened. Below is a timeline of events that compiles the latest reporting. At some point before he went to the school, investigators believe Adam Lanza, 20, killed his mother, Nancy Lanza. He grabbed three guns from the house -- a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle made by Bushmaster and pistols made by Glock and Sig Sauer -- and went to the elementary school wearing black

Comments:
There are 45 police officers in that department and it took them TWENTY MINUTES to arrive at the scene after the initial call.

And nearly four hours later a woman came out of an inner office where she had been hiding and said the police officers were surprised to see her.

Time for police to show up-- 20 minutes. Time for an authorized staffer to get shotgun out of safely locked area-- 45 seconds. Time for a teacher to pull out a concealed weapon-- 5 seconds.

Relying on the Police to be there to save your life is foolish.

As citizens, we need to take responsibility for our safety and our community, rather than relegating the responsibility to others. On that path, lies Tyranny.

The 20 minute delay in responding to the 911 calls will never be explained. Worse, normal citizens will be told to give up their weapons because "the police are there to protect you". Actually, to put up the yellow "Crime Scene" tape when they eventually arrive and then stand about for hours on double overtime.

When the Kumbaya crowd made schools “gun free zones”, they set them up for this sort of slaughter. Perhaps next they’ll give us gun free police departments and military bases.

The shooting at the school ended when someone with a gun showed up. Why wasn’t the man with gun there in the first place? Oh, right, it’s a gun free zone.

Connecticut is a thoroughly, thoroughly, liberal democrat state. In other words, governed by people with all the answers.

and yet this happens.

Yep, #2, when seconds count the police are just minutes away.

Too many people believe the propaganda that the police are there to protect you. Nope. No legal liability for that at all. The police are there as muscle for the government to promote ´public order´, follow orders, and clean up the mess and arrest citizens after they defend themselves (though the latter is less likely in a few states). Oh, and collect ´fines´, ´fees´ and ´taxes´ involuntarily from citizens.
The founders warned about standing armies and tyranny. Lazy citizens who want someone else to be responsible for them ignored the warnings - if they ever bothered to learn of them - and bought the lies. These days look at how ´militarized´ the police departments are before you argue that the police don´t constitute a ´standing army´ in addition to the federal forces.

A "semi-automatic assault rifle." These people have no idea what they´re talking about.

Stop making sense, #2. The police are there to protect us, or failing that, to draw pretty chalk outlines around our dead bodies. They´re very good at that.

In an attempt to make our society safer, there are two misplaced points of view; those that think the government should remove all our guns and those that think everyone should be armed.
The real problem, the problem no one wants to address because it points the finger at our culture, is the heart. As with all these mass murderers, they plan these evil acts in their heads, days, weeks, and months ahead of time. In their heart, they commit murder before they ever grab a gun. The heart is where the problem lies and the heart, conditioned by a culture of death can do some horrendous things; just look at history.
We are living in that culture today, brought on by ungodly secularists destroying everything that was once held sacred. Just take a look at life. We murder 400 unborn children a day and the nation turns its head. We sell violence in the form of movies and video games. Our families are being systematically destroyed leaving kids to be raised by gangs and marketers that put their profits before the welfare of our children; teaching them that feelings are the standard of morality.
God is gone, thrown out by secularists and atheists and along with God, our culture, values, morals and the sacredness of life.

They say he shot his way in using a "assault" weapon but he only had 2 pistols, the semi-automatic "assault weapon was still in the car. Media idiots need to hire technical experts, not rely on incompetent journ-o-lism wonks.

No disrespect to individual officers intended, but the job of LEO has become cleanup not protection. And as long as liberals and the ACLU stand in the way and prevent justice and deny commonsense solutions because they don´t feeeel right, we will continue having these attacks committed in ´gun free´ zones.

11, the State Police have said over and over since Saturday after the autopsies that ALL the victims in the school were SHOT WITH THE SEMI-AUTOMATC RIFLE which Lanza took into the school along with the 2 handguns. He only used one handgun to kill himself. I can´t imagine how you missed that if you have been paying any kind of attention at all.

What happened is most of America clings to magical thinking. Now, if someone tries to hijack an airliner, the passengers figure out a way to fight rather than do as instructed. We still pretend that offish TSA agents frisking grandma is effective security, but at least every passenger has a reality card to play now. It´s odd that no administration official or media pundit has suggested following El Al/Israeli techniques, but we know why, it profiles and it´s harder than pretending.

Domestic ´security´ is the same way. Some Americans have always understood the predator/prey roles. Many, especially urban residents want to or have to pretend there are new ways of dealing with personal responsibility. Again, we could look at how Israel deals with threats to their children, but that solution involves the same hard work and honest talk that few will stand behind. Maybe this horrible event will at least pull the covers back on the pretending that having a law, a sign and even a lock can protect anyone.

Just repeating what has been reported, that being......"the rifle was still in the car".
My personal judgement will not be based on hearsay media, it will wait until they are finished investigating and publish a report.

4 - we already have gun free military bases. The only reason Nidal was able to shoot and kill/wound so many is because no one except military police are allowed to carry their weapons on base...

15- in the immediate hours on Friday it was said by media that the rifle was in the car. On Saturday, 5 days ago, both the State Police (many times) and the Medical Examiner who did all 26 autopsies along with his medical team, have OFFICIALLY said at press conferences over and over that the fatal wounds had ALL come from the one rifle, not a handgun. Each child was hit from 3-11 times. These were live police and medical press conferences, not media hearsay. The rumor you quote that the rifle was in the car was from the media and incorrect according to the official police statement and the ME. You are quoting rumor and hearsay from Friday, not the official live statements made every Saturday morning.

20 MINUTES! For the police to respond, seriously?

I do not want to believe some of the conspiracy theories, but all the contradictory stories make that hard. Was Adam a normal kid or mad at his mother? You can find reports of both. If the mother really wanted to commit Adam, she had the money to do so. I read another story that Adam went to the school for 8 years. I thought that the school only went to 4th grade? As another poster already said, there are many differing reports of the mother´s connection to the school.

But 20 MINUTES! That is the most inexplicable fact of all. If it is true.

I know all I ever need to know. Innocent children and dedicated staff were shot in cold blood for no good reason.

Could we give these grieving families a day of peace and leave them alone ?

DHS insider: It’s about to get very ugly

Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that something seemingly ripped from the pages of a spy novel took place. While I was in the middle of a perfectly good and well needed sleep in the very early hours of this morning,

QUINCY – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so? "It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section. Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling. “I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ.

Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him. Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview. Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart.

CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department. The letters make the case for the whistleblowers to be able to share

Obama administration has SLASHED
budget for domestic bombing prevention

Barack Obama´s administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million. That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.

The Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Tuesday that it released personal information on potentially thousands of farmers and ranchers to environmental groups, following concerns from congressional Republicans and agriculture groups that the release could endanger their safety. According to a document obtained by FoxNews.com, the EPA said “some of the personal information that could have been protected … was released." Though the EPA has already sent out the documents, the agency now says it has since redacted sensitive details and asked the environmental groups to “return the information.” But Sen. John Thune, who originally complained about the release,

Yet another new survey shows that Republican supporters know more about politics and political history than Democrats. On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey titled “Partisan Differences in Knowledge.” The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party. “Republicans fare substantially better than Democrats on several questions in the survey,

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.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
