My nephew has a very mild "form or case" of aspergers. Again every individual is different. Not sure how he got his hands on the guns in the first place but i know if i had guns there is no way my children would have anyway to get them. That is what gun cases are for. You dont just leave a key laying around. Im hearing now the mother was a doomsday prepper?

That's what I was thinking. Kinda weird for a retired school teacher to have so many guns, including an assault weapon and she's just living with her son. Heard she was also a bit frigid towards him. Something about that living situation seems a little off.

Re: School Shooting In Connecticut

It makes me sad....but proud that in the moment of truth, when all that matters in life comes down to a few moments, that there are people such as these that think not of themselves but only of others.
RIP Heroes of Sandy Hook.......

Re: School Shooting In Connecticut

NC_Skins posted this video in the gun control thread. It is not political, and has a good message, in my opinion. It is less than 3 minutes long, and worth watching.

I went to the movies right after Aurora and did the same thing. They had an officer there in the theatre. The bad part is, he wasn't clearly labeled as a policeman. Made people very nervous for a bit. Clearly wearing a bulletproof vest, etc. Didnt have big POLICE markings on it...

Really is sad. Often times I feel for the families, but it doesn't really 'affect' me or my day to day. Even as an individual without kids, I can't fathom dropping your child off at elementary school, and not picking them back up. That is absolutely unreal to me. I don't know if I can think of a worse atrocity than killing innocent children in a school.

I know people say they wouldn't give their children access to their guns, etc. Keep in mind, this guy was 20. Most 20 year olds have access to everything in the house, etc. We're not talking about a 12 year old getting access to the safe. Something seems really off with this family.

As a parent who drops kids off ... I am sure more than one parent was in hurry mode that morning. Maybe even losing patience and giving their kid the "Come on, come on ... move it" w/out even thinking about it.

I can't change what happened but it is my sincere hope that each of the parents got the opportunity to say good-bye and give their child a hug that morning. It's not much of a wish, but one I hope is true nonetheless.

I swear, I cannot think of this tragedy without tearing up. My daughter turns six in a month. I can't look at the pictures of the murdered kids b/c I would see her in every picture.

I have a six year old daughter too. Just put her on the bus. My wife is her art teacher and had to go in early for an emergency meeting. Man what you said about those parents last words is so hard to think about. I have sent my daughter off to school before after she acted up in the morning and telling her she is in trouble when she gets home. Whenever i yell at her i always say "daddy loves you when you are good or bad". My wife was looking at a picture of one of the victims last nite and asked me "doesnt this look like Rhiannon"? I just said no - but she is a beautiful little girl now stop looking at her. Truth be told she looked alot like my daughter. God i cannot even imagine my state of mind. I hope above all that none of the children suffered and that the parents somehoe find the strength to realize their little children are angels and safe in Gods kingdome until they get there with them. God Bless

Just went to see my daughter and her class do their xmas play at her school. I realized about after thirty seconds that the front row was not a good place to sit. All i could think about was those kids and parents in CT that should have been doing the same thing today. Was real hard to smile for the children there today. Ugghh.

A week later I am still finding stories that make me cry:

Josephine Gay, remembered for 'indomitable spirit' - baltimoresun.com

To think her birthday party was the next day. Heart wrenching!!

Same here. I feel like I should read everything that gets written about these 26 victims, just so that they capture more of my attention than do discussions on mental health and gun control, and certainly more attention than gets the shooter.

Claim seeks $100 million for child survivor of Connecticut school shooting - Yahoo! News

People can be huge pieces of shit at times. This is one of those times.
