    I honestly feel sick to my stomach. My wife and I were just talking about going to get our kids out of school and we live 1800 miles away. I just can't fathom why someone would murder children.. Absolutely disgusting. Worst part is the guy is dead..I hope someone got to kill him and he didn't just put a gun in his mouth.

    My nephew and niece are in lockdown up there right now...my aunt works in the Newtown school district as well...thankfully not in Sandy Hook. I have other friends with their children in the Newtown schools....I spend alot of time in the Bethel/Newtown area...Fairfield County, CT borders Westchester, NY...not an area where you would think stuff like this happens...its peaceful...its quiet....I mean I get ice cream all the time up there from a stand at a dairy farm............absolutely shattering and heartbreaking...very very worried about everyone right now.

    Not likely since guns are not allowed, for anyone to defend themselves, on school grounds. If every teacher, administrator and janitor there (who wanted to) was packing, there may have been a different outcome. My heart goes out to those affected.

    What is wrong with people? Why can't they just play guitar and mellow the hell out?

    I try really hard to empathize with people before passing judgement, but with situations like this I just can't do it. Shooting children? What kind of a statement could this twenty year old be trying to make? Nothing but wickedness.

    What's wrong with the world these days?!

    I cannot comprehend how someone can commit such an act. My heart goes out to the children, the parents, and teachers at this time.

    Heard the shooter was a 20 yr old, went into his mothers class where she was teaching, and shot her dead before going off with the guns.....

    What I meant was the whole situation is insane. A son kills his mother and a bunch of little kids with a gun in a school.

    Update: CNN says that three guns were found with the kid, at least 100 rounds were fired, and they found a brother dead at another location that was searched.

    I want to write something but it's against the forum rules. All I will say is something must be done, this has happened way too many times i.e. more than never.
