27 Killed In Connecticut School Shooting

NEWTOWN, Conn., (UPI) –  At least one gunman opened fire in an elementary school in Newton, Conn., Friday, killing up to 27 people, many of them children, police said.

“I saw some of the bullets going past the hall … then the teacher pulled me into her classroom. … it sounded like someone was kicking the door,” one child told reporters.

The gunman’s body was reportedly found at the scene.

Three wounded victims were were treated at a nearby hospital.

CBS reported the preliminary investigation indicated 27 people were killed, including at least a dozen pupils, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Investigators said the shooting followed a confrontation between a young man and a school administrator about 9:40 a.m., CBS said.

Police had yet to determine whether the gunman acted alone.

Officers and teachers led children, many of them crying, to a staging area where parents could pick them up, the Hartford Courant reported.

NBC reported at least three ambulances were on school grounds about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 80 miles northeast of New York City.

    Here we go again. Yet another utopian has left us with a message that we get to try and decipher. Hopefully, the _____ who did the sick deed is dead.
    My heart breaks for the families who lost children or friends today. Like it or not, get used to it, America. It tends to be true that things have to get worse before they get better. The media will – again – be a ho bag for the posing White House, and another attempt to eliminate the 2nd Amendment will materialize.
    People, it’s NEVER the fault of a weapon. It’s the sleazoid, subhuman who pulls the trigger. This isn’t advanced calculus, people.

      I agree.

    It’s also the sleezoid lax laws that sometimes lets the sleez get the gun. In this case it looks like the sleez got legal guns from a family member.

      He did more than just get the guns from a family member ron . r. He murdered his mother by shooting her in the face multiple times so he could steal her guns.

    CNN did a reasonable piece on Adam Lanza at:

    It’s hard to say what took this very intelligent kid, who apparently may have also had Asberger’s Syndrome, and had him do this. At the risk of making a premature evaluation, which is all any of us can do lacking all the details, it sounds like Adam was still having some identity issues after his parents’ divorce. The father didn’t sound like a very “warm” person and perhaps that was one reason for the divorce. No one can say.

    One thing is for sure. All the libtards will be coming out of the woodwork crying, “Oh, the humanity!” and demanding more gun control.

    Perhaps the same corporate owned media that limits our presidential candidate choices to two globalist stooges should share the blame; the same corporations that dictate what programming is going to be spoonfed to the dumbed down masses, like the incessant barrage of zombie movies, one after the other, the apocalyptic doomsday 2012 movies, and, in this particular case, the asinine parading of SWAT team attired, shaved headed, law enforcement in shows that depict the latest bevy of mindless alphabet-soup goons whose fathers’ must have have kicked their asses

    Here it is, Sunday morning, and Charles Kuralt has as a guest speaker, Rep. Caroline McCarthy (NY), making yet another libtard, panty-wetting, attempt to control the guns without once addressing the concatenation of socially irresponsible bills that Congress has come up with that disenfranchise the members of this society from anything that might bind them more tightly. McCarthy, BTW, has voted down party lines over 98% of the time. Politics as usual.
