shooter 24 year armed with 4 weapons and wearing a bulletproof vest. WHY THE HELL ARENT THESE TEACHERS ALLOWED TO CONSEAL CARRY? and why are bullet proof vests available to the public. I dont want gun contol and european union style control of weapons and semi and assault weapon bans I wan us they way we use to be were every body walked around with a weapon and nobody wanted to mess with you out of fear of being killed. stop dishing out psychotropic drugs to the american people......make it harder to get a gun but dont ban them.....that just makes them more mysterious and make people want to obtain them more. because they are "illegal"


20 year old, 2 guns. Had not heard anything about a vest at this point.

EDIT

ABC and NBC are reporting two different things. ABC says 24 with 4 guns, NBC says 20 with 2 guns. Guess we just need to give it some time, wait for confirmation.

Everybody likes to pretend that killing people for PLAY on a regular basis has no connection to being less empathetic or caring about the living creatures in the world around them; continue on with that delusion if you wish. Those in the mental health professions know that this is not true.


Those in the "mental health profession" are the ones throwing around medicine like its candy, and probably creating half of these psychos out there. So save your preaching for someone else.

Is anyone else hearing that the gunman was a parent of a student at that school?

Can you take this vendetta against video games to another thread? You aren't convincing anyone.


Thank You!!! We are talking about a tragedy involving practically babies!!!! My God, I can't get passed the tears yet, much less start dissecting the cause behind it....there is NO Excuse for this! None!

I have 2 boys....one in pre-school and one in elementary. I am sick to my stomach thinking about the families of these poor innocent babies.

How can you hurt a child like that, someone so dependent on love...this breaks my heart in two...I can't imagine what the parents and those on the scene are feeling and I don't ever want to feel it...why?

Another shooting where we start with multiple shooters and end up with a crazy lone nut? Duly noted.

Bulletproof vests could be made pretty easily if they couldn't be bought. Someone with the will to kill, could make their own weapons, vests, whatever they want really. The only difference is it might take an extra few months to be ready to go on their rampage. Plus, there is always the internet blackmarket if all else fails.

How can ONE person possibly kill 30+ people including CHILDREN, innocent children? How? Why?

Surely there were multiple gunmen? Guns jam, they need to be reloaded, doors can be barricaded ... no way one guy killed 30 people.


With the kinds of weapons available for people to buy in the USA, killing a hundred people in a minute is entirely possible. Someone can easily murder 30+ people within a few minutes.

It doesn't mean there must be more than one shooter.

American's might not like it, but this is what happens when you allow civilians with mental instability to own high-powered assault weapons designed for a battlefield!

Please tell me how gun control makes anybody safer?

depending on the clips it could only take i mag change to kill thirty,

hate and fear is starting to rule the world, something needs to change, or there will be more innocents dead. i hope the famileys of the deceased can cope with what happened, otherwise there will be more hate and fear in the future.

This time the reports of TWO gunmen are almost undeniable. They kept that going too long. After the first was "killed" there was a pursuit through the woods and 1 arrest made.. Then there was the pursuit of a van in Danbury????

Get ready for bull# on the 6pm news.

CNN just reported at least 27 dead, mostly children. Gunman did indeed have bulletproof vest on they are reporting. This is their live report on televesion.... again tho, numbers keep changing.

Those are just brown kids.

Like how we dont care about Detroit or Chicago experiencing perpetual gang warfare with children dying everyday.

We only care about the white kids. Better yet, the wealthy white kids.

Newtown Demo's:


The racial makeup of the town was 95.14% White, 1.75% Black or African American, 0.14% Native American, 1.40% Asian, 0.04% Pacific Islander, 0.64% from other races, and 0.89% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.36% of the population.



The median income for a household in the town was $90,193, and the median income for a family was $99,192 (these figures had risen to $101,937 and $119,175 respectively as of a 2007 estimate[7]).

Wake us up when a drone hits some rich white kids.

Doesnt appear to be a second shooter. They're trying to figure out if this second person in custody is involved at all, they arent sure yet. Updates are slow to come, but that's expected - they have more important things to deal with than update the news guys
