i'm in tel aviv israel where i get a pre-recorded version of cnn. i don't speak hebrew, so that's about all i watch. well, cnn has cut in with live coverage of this event. i wish i was still watching Piers Morgan over and over and over again.

Wow, that's just so wrong. Wishing the best to the love ones and survivors. The Japanese media, when some tragedy is created by someone, will NOT post a picture of the criminal, but will put photos of the victims up. They say that putting up the criminals picture can (and does) cause marginally normal people to relate to the perpetrator and act out similar scenarios. It only takes a single person out of a million or 2 to make a big sh#t storm.

It is the opposite of what our media does. Since I can't control our media but just myself, when they start going on about the bitch who drove her car into a crowd etc etc, I turn it off or change the channel. The reason they drone on like that is purely for ratings, and if enough people changed their behavior it would change the medias response to these kinds of things.

Good God! Why does this keep happening. We shouldn't give it so much attention.

My heart goes out to the families . . .

Sad. Unfortunately, the body count will need to be much higher to waken the American people up to the stranglehold the NRA has put them in.

Holy sh#t, this is tragic. 18 kids?

What kind of f*#king monster would even think of that?

What the eff are we coming to? The frequency of these events seems to be rising exponentially.

GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.

Part true, part PURE bullsh#t.

I'd rather be "injured" with a knife personally.

That only took a couple of days. Maybe if the children had been armed the toll wouldn't have been as high. When? When are we going to learn - guns ARE in fact the problem. NRA brainwashing, the insane commercial proliferation of small arms, and near total lack of control of weapons is making these incidents a weekly societal occurrence.

Guns are the problem when combined with movies and tv and other media that glorifies stupid american sh!t.

Another senseless shooting. "Guns don't kill people..." right...

the whole world's glued to the cable TV
It looks so real on the big LCD
murder and violence are rated PG, too bad for the children
they are what they see
