    Don't go there...I can understand and sympathize with that, but that'll blow this place up bigger than Hiroshima if we discuss that...

    It's sad because it's true..

    This was what I thought as well. So sad and disturbing.

    True. I forget that TFW doesnt have a Politics+religion forum like the Allspark. Dont even bother to reply to that other posters.

    Mourn right now and pray for the families who have lost their kids, debates can come much much later.

    As much as I want to reply to that, I don't want to get banned, and start a fire here.

    My God... That is just sick! I mean, those kids had their lives ahead of them, and this maniac who probably had more than a few screws loose went and killed them and his mother, and for what reason?

    That kind of senseless murder makes me wonder why such people even exist! I sure hope this guy...no, this bastard!...rots in the deepest, darkest, most evil part of the Pit possible!

    I hpe his body is run over by a tank for this...

    He deserves to be crushed to a pulp beneath the tracks of an Army tank. A grave would be too good a punishment for this psycho! :banghead:  :mad:

    Just numb...

    Why do this to families who were looking forward to seeing their kids open up presents on Christmas Day? It does not make any sense.

    Still, I hope that this guy is in the bowls of Unicron for this. And I agree that his body should not be buried. Rather, why not have NASA send his form up into space, where it is cold and lonely, no one to remember him, no one to recall his name, etc, etc, etc... :banghead: 

    Or they could do this to his body as well.:horse:  Whack at it with a stick!:ev:

    The President has ordered all flags to be at half mast for the time being.

    Which is why if you own a legally purchased gun and have kids, you need a locked gun vault or trigger locks. Not to speak ill of the dead, but if she kept guns where her son could easily get them and use them, then she was being highly irresponsible.

    She could have bought them for him. We don't know why she bought them at this time.

    This is absolutely terrible. School shootings in general are awful, but these were children. That's just a whole different level of despicable. My thoughts and prayers are with the families. :(

    To reiterate, do NOT bring political discussion about gun laws into this thread.

    This is not the time and it's definitely not the place, as per our forum rules, to do so.

    Disregard of this will result in removal from the thread and a warning/infraction.

    That's even worse. Aside from maybe a hunting rifle (which stayed out of reach and locked up when not used for supervised hunting trips or supervised trips to the practice range), I cannot see a parent buying a kid a gun as any means responsible.

    And no this is not about gun laws. This is about parents that own them and treating them responsibly.

    I don't know if this makes me as sick as the gunman, but local newspapers are going around town looking for victims of the shootings. Reports are they are already outside some people houses waiting.

    Please let the families alone and let them mourn.

    Those children had their whole lives ahead them.

    Those parents who sent their kids to school this morning only to find out they'll never see them again.

    My thought and prayers go out to the families involved
