Multiple people are dead after a shooting this morning at a Connecticut elementary school, according to a report.

According to a witness report, the school's principal and another staffer were killed while the vice principal was shot in the leg afte a gunman opened fire in a hallway.

A witness said gunshots were heard in the hallway during a meeting and that "100 rounds" must have been fired, according to CNN. After the shots were fired, three people ran into the hallway but only the vice principal crawled back.

Cops responded to reports of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary just after 9:40 a.m., and said the gunman was in the school's main office, according to reports.

Nancy Pelosi is not amused.

This will take attention away from the oh-so-critical fiscal cliff!

These shooting are getting the smell of Fast and Furious! Next we’ll hear about some Fed funding on some unrelated program with the perp, like the Aurora, CO movie shooting.

Notice they are happening in gun control states.

When violence is involved we should always ask:

Were union employees involved?

There’s unvetted info flying all the place about this story. I’ve heard there are 2 gunmen and ones still on the loose.. I’ve heard on a story linked by Drudge that the gunman’s daughter was shot. I’ve heard that the principal shot and killed dthe gunman and now this article is saying that the gunman killed the principal. Wouldn’t it be nice if the press used a little restraint and only reported what they knew to be facts?

From the article:

"The White House said President Obama was notified of the shooting."

Now, let that settle in, and tell me if TOTUS knew about Benghazi.

Of course, the liberals will skip through puddles of blood to push their agenda.

This does not sound like a domestic incident gone wrong. Clearly a terrorist attack of some type. Question is who. Deranged individual, jihadist, that is going to be the question, and we are going to have to read between the lines of the politically correct information put out by the media.

Yes the 27 dead bulletin just came across my local radio.

I was so startled, it caused me to capsize the boat I was in causing me to lose all my guns into the sea.

The thing is, if one is stupid enough to disarm, then one is going to be the victim of another who is armed.

It applies to countries as well as citizens.

There is no way in Hell I am going to live in this nut infested country without my gun.

Just not going to do it.

“This does not sound like a domestic incident gone wrong. Clearly a terrorist attack of some type. Question is who.”

I’m reading some Twitter posts from the local reporters who are saying a father of one of the kids at the school was the shooter. Targeting first the principal and school psychologist. Well...I have to wonder whether this DID stem from a domestic incident or not? Was a father not allowed to see their child at the school so they go on a killing spree? HOpe not but my bet is that’s what’s up.

This is absolutely horrible

I am afraid the Gun Control Fascists will use this to push for Gun Control. Gun Control....as in Schools being No Gun Zones...did not save these children and school workers

Fox now reporting that school IDs all before entering school...you cannot enter without ID....and whoever shot had access to the school. This was not a random shooting. This was quite well planned with INSIDE SCHOOL ASSISTANCE

There is something up here...especially with the Feds so quick on the scene

Yup...would be just as effective as the laws against illegal drugs. Or the laws that one isn’t supposed to come into this country illegally. Or the laws that make EVERY drive only go the speed limit...or...or...or??
