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.

Prayers up.

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.

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.

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.

Newtown?
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
