If they are stupid enough, insensitive enough and tasteless enough to pull that, Newtown may not have seen its last of violence.

I wonder if the people of Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, etc, etc, just shrug their shoulders and utter those callous words, 'collateral damage'.

Children are children, innocent victims, wherever they may be.

We had the shock of this in Dunblane, Scotland, it's awful, worst nightmares come true.
We have also, always had pretty strict gun laws, laws that were tightened up after Dunblane.
There was no mad rush here to buy guns.

Exactly the opposite is happening in the USA, people are going out and buying more of the type of weapon used in this latest 'kiddie carnage' in case there is a clamp down/ban on them.

Madness, the more guns out there, the more chance of these tragic events occuring.

Work in a china shop, you will break cups. Carry guns, someone will get shot.

If one of these wackjob killers shows up where you are, ready to kill, if nobody else there has a gun and can shoot straight, maybe YOU might be one of those that gets killed.

America is full of guns, America has more of these atrocities than any other civilised country.
It's not difficult to see the connection.

It is not difficult to see the connection of British imperialism and the death of millions of Irish during the potato famine either. If the Irish people had been as well armed as we are the British landlords would not have been exporting food while millions starved!

It is not difficult to see the connection of a lack of a well armed population and the genocide, and ethnic cleansing that goes on in many countries around the world. It has also gone on here with our treatment of native American populations.

In general we do not trust our government. I am not sure any people should!

The NRA is calling for armed guards in schools.

By that logic, throwing water to a drowning person is a good idea.

Let the NRA pay for armed guards in schools. After all, if they insist on having access to guns for everyone, this puts everyone else at risk and THEY should pay for our protection. Tax them heavily for buying and owning a gun (like an excise tax) and use that money to pay for all the cops we will need to patrol the schools, malls, theatres, etc.
Those of us who don't own guns shouldn't have to pay for this.
After all, the NRA is full of conservatives who don't want the government involved in anything, so why should the bill for protecting the public from gun nuts be paid for by the government?
