Unlike previous shootings at American schools, this attack was on very young school children, an elementary school in Connecticut.

Sky News are now reporting twelve dead. Earlier reports put the figures of fatalities as much lower.

Reports are saying the School principal was killed.

If that's all they had to 'contribute' to the world, it were better if they were drowned at birth.

What's wrong with that country?

Really, something is seriously wrong over there.

This will keep happening until the law places weapons out of the hands of the mentally unstable.

Based on my experiences that's a lot of people.
They can keep their amendment and 'constitutional right' to a semi-automatic assault rifle :roll: but as long as they do, there will be similar headlines to these every few months.

Perhaps the problem is the alternative in that there isn't enough guns...

Firearms are not permitted on school grounds which may sound like a sane idea, however if teachers, security etc were armed, this guy would be the only fatality.
