Fairfield is such a sleepy/boring place too. That seems to be the case often, it can happen anywhere.

Can't believe there's been a worse shooting than Columbine/Virginia Tech, and at an elementary school no less. So disgusting.

I remember at my school they put these card swipe things so you couldn't get inside without a student/teacher ID. Everyone was like "why? nothing happens here." Every school should do this now.

Yikes, that Connecticut school shooting is getting worse. 27 dead, including 18 children. The principal and school psychologist are dead, and so is the gunman who was a father to a student. There are reports of a second gunman in custody.

This is making me ill and so very angry. And judging from Twitter, I'm not the only one.

My CNN app has the pic of the kids leaving the school. They must take that down, it is too heartwrenching to see them so terrified.

I know you're never going to stop bad people from finding a way to get guns, but they have to make it as hard as possible to get automatic military style guns.

A small gun that holds 6 rounds or whatever is fine if people want to keep it in their house or if a woman wants it in her purse if she has to go somewhere alone, but these mass shootings are far different from that. Its always people who have mental problems who get powerful rifles and machine guns that can hold a ton of rounds, and multiple ones at that. I mean, the Aurora shooter bought rounds ONLINE. How can you buy ammo on the internet? Thats not right.

This makes me sick. I don't want to know it's real. I keep hoping the number 27 was an accident or something. Why would somebody do this? A massacre is one disgusting thing, but to children? Why?

Horrifying. Perverse. Right before the holidays, can't begin to imagine what those poor families are feeling right now.

Usual parroting of "now is not the time to talk about gun control". You're right, that day came and passed a long time ago. Seems like nobody in America, Obama very much included, has any kind of principled stand here. Sad.

CNN is saying the death toll is at 30 now.

NBC reports that one of the gunmen's father was found dead in New Jersey.



Not only is this a gun control issue but also a mental health issue.

I want to own a gun and shoot for sport (no I do not hunt!) just as much as the next but there should be some rigorous checking and rechecking before allowing anybody to have one. I was surprised to see how easy it was in Florida to get both a rifles and handguns.

The details coming out of this story are getting more and more horrific.

There is no reason ANYONE should own an assault rifle for personal use. None. And for those saying it's too soon to talk gun control? Fuck You, it's to fucking late for those innocent children now isn't it. I'm getting angrier and angrier about this.

Also, they released the shooters name. Why?
