Breaking News: At least 27 people have died in Connecticut at an elementary school. A reported 18 are kids. The principal and psychologist for the school are reported dead as well. When this is confirmed, it will be the second largest mass murder in the U.S. after the Virginia Tech shootings killed 32.
Yet another example of guns killing - not protecting. Gun laws need to be 10 times more strict than they currently are in the U.S, because it is not safe. It is rumoured that the gunman was a 20 year old father of a child enrolled in the school, and used a .223 calibre rifle as well as two handguns found at the scene. He is also dead.
I was going to merge this with the Colorado shooting, but thought this tragic event should have it's own thread.
This news truly breaks my heart for many reasons. The children whose lives were cut short, the families of both the children and adult victims, and for the rest of the school for witnessing this horrible event. This will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
