    It appears that the shooter drove to this community after fatally shooting his brother in Hoboken, so demographics are meaningless here.

    It's important to wait before jumping to conclusions or believing initial reports. This is unfolding with time and likely as not, accurate details will not be available until at least tomorrow.

    Shame on every single news outlet in the planet covering this for turning this into a media circus especially with all the attention now on the killer. All in the name of those holy ratings! Please call your local news outlets and tell them we're sick and tired of this! R.I.P. to all the victims.#PrayForNewtown

    True. But perhaps we need to look a little closer at what race and gender consistently commits these cowardly types of mass shooting crimes and ask,'Why?'

    We've ask it when young black men commit these crimes on each other in their own neighborhoods. Exposing it over the years has helped improve public awareness of it so that it has seen some decline in recent years.

    Let's face this and deal with it by punching it in the face.

    @Politic-n Yeah, if those seven-year-olds had all been packin', a few of 'em might've pushed through the fear long enough to take out Mr. Lanza. Sure, his protective gear might've deflected many of the shots, and the pistol recoil might've busted some noses and teeth, but think of the heroic aftermath and the lucrative book rights. This (for those of us regressively-challenged) has been your daily dose of *sarcasm*.

    Newtown, Connecticut, a great town ruined by a young indoctrinated man
    Now wait...Marxist Anti-Gun Obama people go for more Gun Control.
    Even though, Gun control isnt the problem.
    Connecticut already has a virtual shytload of anti gun laws.
    Guns arent the problem, idiot people are.
    and mostly today its young people, They have been ruined by parents and teachers for their past twenty years.

    Idiot people, like those who can not even let the parents bury their dead children before using this tragedy as an excuse to mount their political soap box and bash Obama. Can't all people have enough decency to wait till the dead are buried before playing this like a game of political football?

    @Vance1 because I think it's disgusting. It reminds me of a memorial I attended once where someone used the speaking person to plug for something I beleived in I told her it was disgusting to, and if you want to copy a bad example by a network that I know you despise, that makes you worse then them, because you know its wrong which is why you would condem them for it. I disagree strongly with u.s. policy, but had the decency out of respect for the dead not to use 9-11 ad an opportunty for a soap box in the immediate sftermath. Have some decency, please.

    Decency? Yes I lowered my flag today for the dead and injured..

    Ed Schultz ended his show tonight criticizing gun advocates for hiding behind the Second Amendment every time shootings like this occur.
    They the left always blame the weapon, and not the whackjob behind the weapon.
    Have some decency? Oh believe me I do for the innocent

    Demographics, statistics, the beauty of a location, none of that matters. This little town has been shattered and will never be the same. What happened to these children is unimaginable in any setting.

    This is scary. I guess living in the safest place in the world can make it less safe.

    I live in Beaverton Oregon (20 miles from the shooting the other day), and in the past we've received rewards for being one of the safest towns on the planet. Does this make us a target? I worry it might.

    I'm hoping that the shooter at the mall the other day didn't have any other people he'd teamed up with...
