If she was never even a substitute there maybe she volunteered there, something like that. I assume he went to school there at some point. Maybe he felt that she had sided with the school in some way if he had issues there-that's pure speculation. Grasping at straws, I'm at a loss to understand.

Let me guess....$$$. Gee I hope they don't go broke.

The NRA has released its first statement on the incident:

National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown.

Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting.

The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.

The NRA is planning to hold a major news conference in the Washington, DC area on Friday, December 21.

Fringe Tea Party-group, Tea Party Nation, also had this to say: “Support the creation of local organizations to act as ‘neighborhood watch’ for schools. Had George Zimmerman been at the front door instead of some mechanical card reader those children would still be alive.”
Wow, really?

"Fringe" is definitely an appropriate word to describe this group.

The eulogy that Noah Pozner's mother delivered at his funeral (the family gave a copy to the Associated Press). Don't know how in the world she did that. Absolutely heartbreaking.


The sky is crying, and the flags are at half-mast. It is a sad, sad day. But it is also your day, Noah, my little man. I will miss your forceful and purposeful little steps stomping through our house. I will miss your perpetual smile, the twinkle in your dark blue eyes, framed by eyelashes that would be the envy of any lady in this room.

Most of all, I will miss your visions of your future. You wanted to be a doctor, a soldier, a taco factory manager. It was your favorite food, and no doubt you wanted to ensure that the world kept producing tacos.

You were a little boy whose life force had all the gravitational pull of a celestial body. You were light and love, mischief and pranks. You adored your family with every fiber of your 6-year-old being. We are all of us elevated in our humanity by having known you. A little maverick, who didn't always want to do his schoolwork or clean up his toys, when practicing his ninja moves or Super Mario on the Wii seemed far more important.

Noah, you will not pass through this way again. I can only believe that you were planted on Earth to bloom in heaven. Take flight, my boy. Soar. You now have the wings you always wanted. Go to that peaceful valley that we will all one day come to know. I will join you someday. Not today. I still have lots of mommy love to give to Danielle, Michael, Sophia and Arielle.

Until then, your melody will linger in our hearts forever. Momma loves you, little man.

Can't even fathom the pain of the families. As many others my heart is broken for them.

Deeply moving, lovely eulogy. I honestly don't know how the parents can even manage right now, but any strength they're showing is definitely deeply admirable.

Apparently/allegedly he did enough advance planning to smash his computer so that police couldn't recover evidence from it

Lanza attended the school as a child and allegedly his mother volunteered there.

Ad campaign that was running for the Bushmaster .223 until last week.

Bushmaster Rifles Has Been Running The Most Evil Ads I’ve Ever Seen — The Good Men Project

I don't know about you, but I'm okay with being labelled "unmanly" if it means I don't own an assault weapon.

I wouldn't be too worried:

Quote:

But in the age of cloud computing and multiple Internet-connected devices, authorities have no shortage of ways to follow his online footprints for clues, from acquiring his emails and search history to obtaining his online correspondence while he reportedly played "Call of Duty" on Xbox, experts said.
"Your Internet history is very telling," said Monique Ferraro, an attorney and digital forensics expert. "Even without a hard drive, if he was on the Internet, and most people are, investigators will be able to tell quite a bit about what he was doing, where he was going and what he was thinking."

And if, for example, Lanza used Google for email or Web search, law enforcement officials will likely subpoena the company to gain access to the content of his emails or what sites he visited after conducting a Google search, according to experts. As the recent email scandal involving retired Gen. David Petraeus highlighted, it's very difficult to hide the details of correspondence from law enforcement -- even for the director of the CIA.

Watching Obama's presser where he asks for concrete proposals by January and advocates a compromise approach to enact some meaningful regulations on "weapons of war", as he called it.

The very first question from the media was on the....fiscal cliff. Obama has now spent almost 15 minutes talking about the current budget negotiations.

Priorities.

Are you going to elaborate on this? First I've heard he went after Special Ed.

Half an hour and four questions later, a question on guns!

Obama: "There's a huge amount of space between what the 2nd Amendment means and having no rules at all."

If only...if only a strong, burly man had been around to protect the weak, defenseless women and children, none of this would have happened.

Just when you think you heard it all.

The best part was the suggestion that some of the "huskier 12-year old" male students should have tackled the shooter.
