The best thing to do about that is turn it off and not watch.
Feeding the media frenzy.
The media is sick.

A sad day for human-kind not only in the US but China as well. Forget the gun debate for a minute and see through humane eyes that something is far, far wrong. We as a spieces are changing and not for the best. We are becoming unfeeling when atrocities like this hold our attention for only a short while.

I think of the young girl April Jones from Wales in the UK, murdered a few weeks ago and still her body is not found. Ask someone to recall the incident even though there was maximum TV coverage for hour on hour, day by day...and they cant remember her name.

I have grand-kids, the newest being only 2 days old and I worry for them because they are not born uncaring or without empathy. Its the growing up in this staged society that moulds them. They are sculptured into unfeeling statues of what we once were in my day.

I dont have an answer...does anyone?.. But unless we find a way to bring decency back into our thinking and a real feel for what is right and wrong....I know I will mourn for what we once were..

When europeans come in on the first page of every single shooting, demanding we adopt gun laws like their "utopias", and demonizing gun owners...... Well it tends to piss people off. Especially when a lot of the cases, such as this one, gun laws were moot. The guns were stolen from a legit owner, therefor illegal, and not affected by gun laws in any way or form.

f#rkin' hell another one! My thoughts are with the families and kids. No one should have to go through that. Messed up!

And it's not the time nor place to talk about gun control, but this will increase gun sales.. again. Military industrial complex will make a fortune from this. again. People will still think that guns are their right and that giving bad eggs the option to ramp up the effectiveness of a rampage is a solid idea.. again.

Sadly, this will happen.. again. No doubt. But what a pr1ck, just before christmas and the new year.. grr.

Then, maybe the problem really isn't the guns themselves--it's those that clutch them like they're the antidote.

As such, it seems to be high time to expunge the real cancer in American society: the ignorant.

The families can mourn. I would have killed the shooter myself. However, I have an outside perspective. Let their community and families mourn. I have to worry about my weapons because of this idiot and instead of sympathizing with the family i have to worry about my rights are being attacked.

So, don't make me look the bad guy here.

Then, go start a thread on your rights...because you do look bad, in this thread. The dead children...remember them?

I just learned about this tragedy now. My first reflex is to come on ATS to see what my fellow conspiracy nuts are thinking...
Anyways, that is a tragedy. This is so sad.
Whatever the causes, the motives, these children are not with us anymore.
Lets our best thoughts and feelings of love and comfort goes to those affected families. Really.
It takes a minute.
Open your heart, sent all the love you can.
In these troubled times, love is indeed much needed.
And do not fear: you don't need a gun to respond to this unspeakable tragedy.
Love is all we need.

You can chat all you want to with someone online,much like here,and hide behind an avatar and made up name.
What would you actually do if you were to meet someone face to face ?

It will take some time for all of this to sort out,so it's probably best to ignore MSM reports for awhile till things calm down.

These were innocent little kids .
They're lives were taken by evil today.
Any tool used by people are just that,a tool be it a gun or a knife or a frying pan.
It's up to the individual on how that tool is used.



Naturally I don't believe anyone of us would rush up to a parent and cite ATS rhetoric. We would keep our opinions to ourselves if there was any shred of human decency. First thing I did when I got home from work after turning on the news was call my buddy who has a 3 y/o child. Today is truly a sad day without a doubt. But I can't help wondering why? That's why we come here. To discuss the things that we can't in public for fear of being ridiculed and being labeled insensitive. Something sinister is at play here, something is going on and I don't believe sweeping controversial ideas under the rug will solve anything. No stone must go unturned.

Maybe its time to expunge the cancer in American society - the opportunistic liberal.

It's not only Europeans; I can attest to that fact.

But, I guess, your confusion is understandable, given the sheer volume of shootings demanding critique.

Whoa, and how cool where that quote/story came from! I get it


Not sure that type of thinking will gain a tremendous amount of support quite yet, but what a beatiful way to insinuate what alot of us are thinking. ty

Taking my guns is a lot more Important,


Honestly, I don't think that those who are currently in mourning over this tragedy give the first damn about you or your guns.

Are people really naive enough to think that Congress could whip up a magical bill, get it through both the Senate and the House, and signed into law in the time it will take for this thread to find it's natural end?

Piggybacking an agenda on the bodies of dead children is beyond reprehensible - on both sides of the issue. Anyone using this as an excuse to bolster their political agenda is, IMO, shameless and a definitive symptom of the problems we face as a society.

I agree, and Obama leads the pack.....

So liberals are cancer to American society?

The hate that is growing here is frightening.

What about them? Stop attacking my constitutional rights and maybe I could sympathize more efficiently. Oh, and guns are the antidote.

When people demonize people harping on gun laws, well it pisses ME off, if you're not responsible enough to LOCK THE DAMN GUN UP, you shouldn't be allowed to own a gun. Who the hell buys a gun and just let's it lay around to be stolen?

Thats sometimes exactly how/why new laws get passed though.

- drunk driving (MADD)
- children miners
- fires killing teen factory workers in the late 1800s & early 1900s
- many others
