    Newtown Elementary School Shooting

    Reports of up to 27 dead. Shooter is said to be dead. There are reports he was 18-22 years old and drove up from New Jersey. There are also reports he was a student's father.

    CBS seems to be the network on top of this story.

    Time for serious talk about gun control?

    31 U.S. school shootings since Columbine. School shootings in every other country in the world combined since that time: 14.

    This is an updated picture. The original didn't pixilate the children's faces.

    It's not just us and guns. This happened in China today.




    Beijing (CNN) -- Twenty-two primary school children were wounded in a knife attack Friday in central China, authorities said.

    The attack took place at the entrance to the Chenpeng Village Primary School in Henan province, according to the public information department of Guangshan county, the area where the school is located. An adult was also wounded, it said.

    Several of the children are in critical condition, the state-run website Chinanews.com said, citing local authorities.

    Same question that was asked after the Gabby Giffords incident:

    Why does an individual need a weapon that fires up to a 100 rounds at a rapid speed?

    Because the NRA is all powerful. How this organization has secured its untouchability is beyond me. What a nightmare.

    This is sad.

    CT has put out a call to other states for more medical examiners. They don't have enough of them to do all the autopsies.

    Maybe now that the President is not running for reelection he can take a stand? I'm sure potential candidates won't want him to out of fear of the NRA.

    White House spokesman said 'this is not the day' to debate gun control. Sigh....

    At least some of the kids in China are alive because it was knives not guns.

    CBS has a suspect name but is withholding it before police announce it publicly. That's responsible journalism

    Yeah. NBC is lagging wayyyy behind CBS in its reporting. They are waiting for the news conference that was supposed to start at 1p Eastern. The governor of Connecticut is there and is in touch with the White House.

    ETA: They should withhold names because people who have lost their children could go mind gone blank not accountable especially if one of the men is a local.

    Well, that, and if there is a hunt on, it could interfere - the person might not know they know his identity.

    Sounds like someone in the principal's office put the loudspeaker on to let everyone know there is an incident.
