The people living in Newtown must all be grief stricken.

This terrible tragedy affects parents, brothers, sisters, g'parents and the extended families and friends.
The children are all so young, it's heart breaking.
Then there are the children of the Teachers who will also have to cope with this. God love them.

Surely the gunman must have serious mental problems to do such a terrible thing.

After watching the ghastly and distressing news and feeling deeply for the families devastated by this tragedy last evening, I switched on to a film on Sky a few minutes later. It was called 'COBRA' which starred Silvester Stallone. The first scene involved a heavily armed gunman walking into a crowded supermarket and brazenly gunning down several shoppers, before our 'hero cop' Stallone appears and simply shoots him dead. In the space of a few seconds, the sickening scenes were enough for me to turn it off, not just because of the school shootings and the stark similarity to todays events, it immediately made me wonder why the American 'entertainment' media is so besotted with violence and killing by shooting. I am sure, as Mags says, the majority of the population will have nothing to do with firearms, but the film and TV industry must accept a lot of the blame by putting this in front of mentally deficient persons and the young and easily persuaded. Sky documentaries, which I generally enjoy, are crammed with gun-associated fanaticism, from making them, adapting them, and generally glorifying them. Basically, it is down to the Government to clamp down on sales etc, but obviously, the gun lobby will prevail as always and this type of tragedy is something the suffering populace will have to live with until someone see sense. I wont hold my breath. IMHO of course.
Very bad programming SKY!! angry.gif
RIP. 'Suffer the little children'.

Mags, thank God you and yours are safe and well. wub.gif

God help those poor souls who have lost those precious children and family. It's a mind numbing tragedy which is so difficult to deal with.

A spokesman for the USA Gun Lobby has said that it is deplorable that no one in the School was armed.?

I'm surprised that after all the previous incidents that schools don't have armed guard(s) as a requirement.

I shed a tear with President Obama yesterday for the senseless killing of these little kids and adults.
This town is situated 80miles north east of New York where people live for peace and quiet, small town America, if it can happen there it can happen anywhere, too many schools are the target for these evil beings.
God bless them all.

I can just picture that!...the principle with the double sixshooters.......the school religious instructor with a glock.....the crossing guard with a baseball bat!...all we need is a *GUN CONTROL LAW!!!...with teeth

Wellfield, More rigorous legislation and enforcement did not unfortunately stop the disasters in Scotland and Norway.

I never said that the school staff should be armed wellfield, but surely if bank's, casino's etc feel the need for armed guards to protect their money then the lives of young children should have the same if not more protection, if by having one discreet armed guard saves the life of one child while you sort out your "GUN CONTROL LAW WITH TEETH" then it must surely be worth trying.

Not as much as i despair when i hear of yet another atrocity.

I was not putting forward a solution Dylan, only surprise that there is not tougher security in schools.

How would you tackle the problem Dylan?
