The Conn. shooting  
Woke up to this news. 26 people dead, 20 of them children. Gun laws of this country need to be changed. Period.

I just have no words.

I came home from work to hear about the news. It is heartbreaking. And for people who say this isn't the time to talk about gun regulation, it baffles my mind. If this isn't the time, when is?

My heart breaks for everyone involved in this.

As I read somewhere online, how is it possible that getting guns is easier than getting therapy??

I have no words either.

I can't just deal with the thought that 20 kids have been slaughtered...they were innocent and pure...I just can't

I'm so sorry, I heard the news when I came home this evening. We had a similar case around here in a Jewish school with children too, we were all shocked as well.

There's absolutely no excuse for such a horrible vile act. But yes, I think it's time to examine the gun control issue in the US. I heard the guy had like 4 guns on him, no wonder he managed to kill so many people.... :(

My heart goes out to all those families affected. I can't even imagine their suffering. It's just.. unspeakably horrible. To think the world has become a place in which things like this are commonplace? It's.. I don't know, too depressing for words.

I hope I don't offend someone and my condolences go to everyone affected but I feel a need to ask what is wrong with american public? I can't understand EVER how they can feel entitled to own assault riffles? How that can be their human right? What are you going to do with an assault riffle? There is no purpose for it except in a war!!! You can't hunt with it, you can't have precision competitions with it, it's only purpose is to kill as many people in as short time possible!!! I don't see how anyone in USA can have the face today to claim that their constitutional right is to own an assault riffle!!!! It makes me wanna make them all see the photographs of little children slaughtered with an assault riffle!!!!
Sorry but this tragedy makes me sick and I wish I never ever hear of this kind of thing again!

While there are some raging morons here who feel that it's a right to have access to assault weapons and such, not all Americans feel that way. Unfortunately, those who do have a LOT of money and a LOT of power. It's sickening. Many, many people do feel exactly as you do about this here in the United States. Apparently just not enough. And it's disgusting.

That's so shocking and horrible. I can't imagine what their parents are going through right now.
