Better find a way to live with firearms. It's not unreasonable to imagine a future where 3d printers are ubiquitious, and people are already making working lower recievers with them. We don't have a choice going forward any more than Sony had a choice wrt to mp3s.

Ok, they are now saying Ryan Lanza is alive and in custody, that his younger brother Adam was the shooter and is dead.

How about we post the happiest moments in our lives instead of talking about this evil?

CBS News reports the gunman, identified as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, was the son of a female teacher at the school who was killed in the mass shooting.

Bad editing here. Are they saying the gunman is dead? Or his mom, or both?

This sums up how I feel about this:
"This will be my only post today. We are shocked and horrified by the news coming out of Connecticut. When senseless violence takes the most innocent of lives, our grief is all the deeper.

Many will seek to turn their outrage to action. But now is not the time for politics. Let us instead reflect upon what was lost today, and first grieve together for the victims, many of whom were just children." ~George Takei via Facebook.

My rage will boil in a few minutes, impotent as it may be.

What's this about Adam Lanza?

At this point, can we just agree that none of the media outlets are reporting this correctly and all we know are a bunch of people are dead?

Today isn't the day for politics, but I would like to see a congressional report or an executive report on mass shootings and the motives, actors, and so on, for the last ten years or so.

No, Ryan Lanza is dead and his brother is being held for questioning.

We should reassign the TSA to protect our public schools.

From the earlier thread...my point was that most animals don't kill their own like humans kill their own. So I misspoke on that point.

But, then, the nutbars who think this happened because of evolution being taught in schools or that there wasn't prayer in public schools, like Bryan Fischer is already blaring on his AFA broadcast...they are both tiring and infuriating, and lead one to at the very least misspeak...

Also, cmon, if this wasn't holiday season and everyone wasn't goofing off at work these threads would be dismal and not so busy...

Ryan Lanza that was posted from FB may be the shooters brother. Police are saying Ryan Lanza is in custody.

It's being reported that the gunman was repeatedly yelling "CLACKA AKBAR!" as he fired shots into the crowd of children.

One poor dude with the same name already has been blamed lots today. Good call.

The report I just read said his brother was found dead at the house.

Ryan Lanza says it wasn't him on Facebook, so I guess that answers that.

Fox news just broke the "assault rifle" cherry. Apparently an M4, but that that with a grain of salt. Both weapons were registered to the mother of the shooter, and unless she's a SWAT member, it was a semiautomatic rifle.

There's too much information and the people who actually know what's going on are far too busy doing important work to worry about making sure the information getting out to us nobodies is accurate, which I think we can all agree is just fine.

This is the one time that I disagree with George Takei. Outrage leads to action, and a resolution. Introspection leads to apathy, and continuation. I don't want this to continue.

Didn't take long.While I was in the break room watching a replay of Obama's press conference, one of the rednecky warehouse guys said "Farking fake tears!" before storming out.

What's more evil, a mentally ill person who could have been stopped by even a merely adequate mental healthcare system, or a healthcare system for profit that denies thousands of people coverage every day?

Not saying the shooter was mentally ill, but I just can't fathom how one could do this without something being wrong in their brain.

I keep coming back to The Onion article while I'm watching this. We'll blame something, call it a day, do nothing and let the cycle repeat.

It's probably going to happen with this and that's what infuriates me the most.

I just read that the second guy found in the woods was the shooter's younger brother and their mother taught at the school.

CNN reporting that shooter's brother found dead in Hoboken.

I thought his bro was in custody, or is this a different sibling? So he killed his mom, his bro is dead in another city. WTF just happened? Maybe the brother committed suicide when he got the news.

No, its a horrible point. Especially since the TSA shouldn't exist in the first place.

Not in China and not much in the US.
