With the awful shooting of kindergarteners today, I want to know: What is going on in the our country?

This is a terrible tragedy.. That keeps happening. Do we need more gun control? Your answers, please.

then only bad guys will have guns. There's a town in GA everyone is required to have a gun the violent crime rate is 0%. they will still stab people hit them over the head strangulate etc.... even if you take guns away.
violent crime per capita has actualy decreased. when it's bad it's realy bad. I blame parents . no one wants to take responsabilty and it's a real shame that mom's who wanted a part time job for extra money have been enslaved to make ends meet. No parental supervision.

I like everyone having guns unless you're a felon. I'm in Oklahoma & they just passed the Open Carry law this year. Haven't tried it yet.
I also didn't know that about Georgia. I wonder if it's a small town?

Was it on the news? I guess I missed it. Who would do that to a bunch of 4 year olds!? Where did this happen at?

Look on the front page of any news site or channel. It happened in Connecticut, at an elementary school.

And the gunman's mother worked at that school. But, no more gun control. We all have rights to bear arms. As someone said below, we'll just find another weapon to destroy America. They sure did it before the gun was invented.

We always have..

I didn't think of that, not only did they lose their babies, it's the holidays! Omg, those poor families of the victims! Can you imagine?! They probably already wrapped presents for those kids...

They need to investigate the motivation behind the shooting . Was the sick shooter a victim of bullying in his life? Maybe not only a look at gun control but factors that drive people to do that, get tough on other issues also. Motivation factors.

I think the suicidal need to stop taking innocent people with them!
Report as
I agree but as long as a sick crazied maniac is bent on killing himself. he won't mind taking people with him. Got to get to them before they reach that point/
Report as
Yeah, but it seems like these people are always just missing help, people just missing the warning signs.. We have to get better at identifying this..
Report as
Absolutely! But where do you start? Most times it seems these "ticking timebombs" are like "Oh, he seemed like such a nice guy", "never thought he was the type".
Report as
True that! We DO hear that a lot..

I don't think that restricting gun rights is what needs to occur. Honestly, if one of the teachers had a concealed weapon, this shooting could have possibly been avoided. I think the emphasis should be awareness of mental problems. This might have been prevented had someone detected the issues involving the shooter beforehand. It truly is tragic and unfortunate.

No need for more gun control. People kill people not guns. You can find guns as easily or easier than finding drug.
Sad, sad story. 20 children dead & 6 adults. They have 1 survivor.

Why do we always go to gun control? How about how we deal with mental illness?

HaiMai: Americans have always been our worst enemies. Take God out & let the Federal Government take control will tell you what's going on in this country. Most Americans are becoming self-centered, de-sensitized & want hand outs. Look out for #1 attitudes. I deal with these types of people daily. No one is planning for emergencies, families are falling apart (thanks to divorces) & of course if you're young, you don't realize you'll actually die someday.

Very Sad Indeed ~ you are gonna be seeing more of this kind of thing happen as Agenda 21 rolls out (google agenda 21) . i believe this is part of a move to bring in total gun control . if you dig deeper i am sure you will find out that the perpetrator was under some kind of drug induced condition as was the case with the supposed batman incident . Remember Nero fiddled while Rome burned and the christians were blamed for the fire when it was set by Nero himself . do not believe initial story . after the total shock of this incident has subsided , if it ever does , none the less ~ dig deeper . They want our guns and want you to willingly hand them in . A defenseless nation is a nation of complete slaves to any govt rule
