NJ and CT are both on eastern time zones I am pretty sure.


Nono, I mean based on the person that might be reporting the issue, not where it was taking place. If the person reporting the above information was local to the scene, then their information is just plain incorrect, I'm just thinking that maybe someone involved in spreading that information was in a different part of the country.

There is a good chance that someone called the police about the father being shot before the shooter made it to the school.

Not everything is a conspiracy......

Good on you. I was pulled out of public school a week before 3 kids walked in to the school with pistols. Never thought about going back after that. Ever.

I was listening live on www.wfsb.com. Also, tracked back on several news sites when all of this started breaking. Most news sites started breaking it around 10:30am. I'm assuming due to the time things hit the web or news, maybe, just maybe the shootings took place around 10am? Even if they did, the police were reported surrounding the 'kids' house around 9:15am. Still well before the actual shootings. All the facts are being documented 'live' on the blogs. Crazy.

Sounds like this is turning into a domestic motive where shooter killed the mother and possibly his mother as well as his own child?

Divorce issue where he took vengeance?


Vengeance? the toll would only be 4.. Mom-in-law, mom, child, self. Not a bunch of other people, and children.. There is no adaquate word to use to describe what he did tho.. Monsterous? Horrific? unimaginable? (My spelling may be off, so forgive me) but I lack words here..

I'm sure we will be "informed" in the coming days.

A sad day tho, indeed.

Since Breivik was not pronounced a psychopath, there will be more copycats of this kind. They don't even need an ideological agenda. Just some burning emotion.

Everything is an AR15 on the news. Not to be to light here but they aren't very good at telling guns apart.

Ar-15 comes in different models from different manufacturers many with different names but
All the same basic firearm!

Some news places were reporting that there was a 3rd or 4th weapon, but it has been confirmed through police that there were only two weapons - 9mm pistols, a Glock and a Sig Sauer.

I've thought about home schooling for about a year now. Every time I bring it up to my husband, he thinks I'm crazy....perhaps not so crazy now though.

This is whole mess has my stomach in knots.


I just informed my wife that I am pulling my kids out of school until after new years....

if this shooting is an indication of the loonies who think the world is coming to an end, there may be more who think they have "nothing to lose" by killing others at this point.

While I know it is drastic, I have to do what is in the best interest of my kids.


I do not blame you one bit sir and I don't think any rational would.

Recognizing that this crazy coming date of next Friday is enough to bring out the loony tunes is doing your job as a Guardian and a Sentinel. There are weak minded and mentally sick people out there.

You have to say "there are some crazy people out there that believe this doomsday crap is real and they might just do crazy things".

It's almost the Holidays anyway...I see no reason taking your kids out of school a little early should be an issue anywhere. tell the school your going to Grandma's house early...don't tell them you are afraid of dec 21, 2012...you might end up on a list somewhere

I am fortunate that my children are now grown but they do attend college so there is still the risk of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Bushmaster is a common brand of an AR15 style rifle.

Ok latest I heard now was a bushmaster .233 AR15 style was found in the vehicle, so probably not used in the shooting. Unless he came back out to put it in the vehicle, then went back in. Who knows what a person in that state of mind would or wouldn't do though I guess.

en.wikipedia.org...



thats because every man of X-X age is required to sign up for military service.....they are trained and given a rifle to keep at home.
