I work night shift. My clock radio woke me with this news moments ago.
Please do not turn this into an anti gun thread. I am not posting this to start an inane political hot button debate and the moment it becomes such I will request it be closed.BREAKING: State police: Students and staff among victims at Conn. elementary school, shooter dead. --- NEWTOWN, Conn. — A shooting at a Connecticut elementary school Friday left 27 people dead, including 18 children, an official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way. Another official, speaking on condition of anonymity for the same reason, said the gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown was killed and apparently had two guns. A law enforcement official in Washington said the attacker was a 20-year-old man with ties to the school
Please be respectful and keep the somber air of one speaking near the funeral of one of these children whose carefree spirit we seek to embody.
The purpose of this thread is both to mourn the death of innocence and to discuss the increase of social frustration/madness that seems to be provoking more and more individuals to lash out at others.
