(Locker... Fathers love their kids just as much. Just Mothers tend to self destruct immediately while Fathers take a little longer. Usually involving alcohol, etc.)

You're implying that Mothers love their children more than fathers

No Locker, I didn't take it that way at all. When children are lost we just revert to out gender role. I just saw a father speak about the sense of hopelessness he had knowing his son was at the school. It was heart breaking, luckily his son was safe. Healthy fathers and mothers both love their children to the end of the earth and then beyond. It might be helpful to check out someone's intent before inaccurate conclusions are jumped to. This is a time when we embrace ALL children...

These are horrible incidents, yet to ignore them is to condone the action. Teach your kids about these- let them see the coverage. Let them see that reality is far different from those video games. Perhaps if the feel it more, the lesson will burn deeper. Kids are the future of America. They need to see all of this to create a better -"down the road"..

They no longer show movies in drivers ed classes like "for want of a seat belt" and "mechanized death" due to the graphic nature, yet i remember vividly seeing those , and it made a dramatic difference of how i thought behind the wheel..

By the way... My cousin has a machine gun in his living room in Greece. We actually are not allowed to have any military installations close to Turkey as part of a treaty agreement. So... Our government issues weapons to the locals.

No one gets shot on the island. There have not been any mass shootings despite all the economic and political unrest in Greece. What does that say? It obviously points out that gun ownership is not equal to violence.

Something else is happening here and yes... It's extremely ugly.

I'm so glad Ron doesn't have kids.

From my limited time on islands, people seem to be pretty chill... maybe the sense of community that comes from being confined to a small chunk of land. But they drive like sh#t.

Plus 1 Bobby D. Where was God during the Holocaust? Even bringing up the kind of crap is a gross injustice to the loved ones of the victims.

Okay, I promise not to talk like I know you... if you promise not to talk like you know about child psychology and how sensationalized news coverage is good for them.

Why is it we never hear about mass knifings? Or someone who stones a crowd of people?

Ken, mass knifing in China mentioned up thread. Note the children were INJURED, not killed like those involved in the gun attack in the US.

But the intent was there...

Exactly Locker! The intent WAS there but knives aren't nearly as efficient as guns to actualize intent.

Exactly, Jim.

I enjoy shooting now and again (read infrequently), but I'd give up the hobby if doing so helps to prevent this sort of sick and disgusting terrorism.

Thank you for emphasizing the point. It can't be emphasized enough.

Rather, it will be interesting to see as time passes how many clues there were that this guy was nuts. Clues which went ignored.

Ignored because we blew $1.4 trillion on war while cutting nearly 10% of what we spend ($16 million) on mental health care. Ignored because people care more about their right to buy guns than their neighbor's right to proper medical treatment. Ignored because gun toting religitards are too busy fighting a woman's right to abort an unwanted child (a child that may very well develop mental health issues) than fighting for their ALREADY LIVING neighbor's right to proper mental health care.

My sincere condolences to the familys, the children, and the state of CONN.

The taking of innocent lives, especially young ones is the act of a devil imo. Thats what the Indians would think.

Heaven and hell? Perhaps we live the HELL to get to Heaven. At least that would lend some sense to this in some way.

Plus it's a lot more personal to go up and knife someone.

Latest report is one of his parents was found dead....ok ... Now it will be blame the parents.

all the parents with alive children are now thanking god for his decision"
