This is in Connecticut
Prayers for students, staff & responders.
Prayers for those involved.
One of my friends just posted something about this on Face Book offering prayers for victims and “Hoping hoping all are ok and someone takes guns off the streets!!”
Needless t say, for the sake of a 35 year friendship - I am not responding to her posting.
Thanks for posting. BTTT!
If a shooter is dead, I’ll bet a gun was used to stop him.
You should just agree with her saying criminals should not have guns.
Possibly his own. If it was a workplace issue, or a personal/domestic issue, often the shooter will commit suicide. In fact, this would be a high probability guess, since (thank the Lord) there hasn't been a report of kids harmed.
I understand your point, but it would do no good and I would just get aggravated.......which is a total waste of energy.

Just heard “No first hand reports of IEDs.....”
The more of this there is, the more of this there will be.
Obviously, this stuff is news, but sometimes I wish it was downplayed, so as not to stir up the other nuts.
OK, I’ll say it, at the risk of alienating our libertarian friends. This is a result of moral decay. TV, music, movies, internet, God removed from schools, all of it. We’ve always had guns, we’ve always had periods of economic turmoil, we’ve always had disputes. But we haven’t always had massacres on a regular basis ...
Channel 3 reporter says that at least 1 person was shot in the foot and has been transported to hospital.
They have no other reports of person(s) being shot, but say that other ambulance services have been responding and may or may not have taken anyone from the scene.
Newtown, CT radio feed
State Police and FBI on scene.
They sure got there fast. Why FBI, I wonder.
I don’t fear hijacked airplanes or dirty bombs.
As a parent, a Beslan scenario is what terrorizes me.
Teachers should be armed.
Isn’t this one of the places that had issues with the citizenry harrassing the volunteer power workers trying to restore their power after Sandy?
Note to all the Gun Control Fascists:
Schools are almost always “gun free zones”....they have strict rules against guns
For the sake of the children, please, Gun Control Fascists, don’t resort to Gun Control proselytizing. It did not work, here
I had to say before the GCFs go wild
Hope all the children are OK
Per NBC: Principal shot and killed.
As a CT FRper, a prayer need.
wow..number of listeners 2709
PRINCIPAL SHOT, DEAD ACCORDING TO CHILDREN WITNESS
2 KIDS WOUNDED
TV 4 OUT OF NEW YORK CITY HAS LIVE STREAM
NBC-CT reports that the school principal is confirmed dead. Per one student, he/she saw some other students injured (shot?). Police are acting as if they are still looking for an active shooter.
Schools in Monroe (adjoining town/city) are on lockdown because of this incident.
One person — the shooter — is dead, per WNBC.
Here we go again (somewhere holder is smiling)
NBC-CT reports that 3 have been taken to area hospitals. No additional information on severity of their wounds or ages (students? teachers?).
Prinicpal may have been the target.
[Disgruntled parent or domestic situation?]
Principal Dawn Hochsprung
NBC-CT is reporting that NBC is reporting:
shooter was an adult
2 handguns recovered from scene
Does that mean that the principal was the shooter?
Sunday night football will need a longer halftime so Bobby C can go on another rant.
“Ms Hochsprung, who has two daughters and three stepdaughters, said she has been impressed with what she has seen at Sandy Hook School so far.”
NBC-CT interviewed one student earlier. The female student said she heard 7 ‘booms’ before the gym teacher had students huddle in the corner. Student said she heard additional ‘booms’ but didn’t not say how many, while they were huddling.
Gabby, you need to block her. It’s the only thing they understand. I’ve blocked and deleted dozens of people, family included, on FB. It’s all they deserve.
Story on the principal.
It is time to eliminate the ban on weapons at schools, and openly allow trained CCW folks to carry while dropping off and picking up their kids.
I am so damn sick of this!
As long as she doesn’t post any anti gun crap on my page - I don’t care what she posts on her own page.

I remember once at work during lunch someone was talking bad about guns.. I said “We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for guns”, thinking I made a pro-American ‘feel good’ statement.. Well, I guess the 4 or 5 Mexican-Americans nearby felt a bit differently about my comment. LOL
Just an FYI - The quote for this Picture is INACCURATE. The man, according to the article is Christopher Geissler, NOT Hochsprung. For some reason, this quote mis-attributed.
This isn't a gun problem. This is a cultural problem - the breakdown of a sane and moral society.
NBC-CT reports that 3 injuried were taken to Danville(?) Hospital. Hospital will have a presser within an hour.
LOL is right!
I remember a Vestry meeting shortly after the concealed carry laws were changed here adding churches to permissible places to carry. Well, the Pastor decided to bring up the subject because the Parish itself can still prohibit. One of the senior members just looked at the Pastor and said “You don’t want to go there.” When she asked why he just said, Trust me, you don’t need to know. Subject has never come up again.
