... Adi. Don't do it. It's a trap
Ok, first of all. I have to admit, I didn't feel anything when I heard about the shooting at Sandy Hook E.S. No remorse or sympathy for the lives lost because I didn't know them. I understood that 20 children lost their lives when they could have grown up into adults and have their own family and die old. I only got more agitated at the numerous amounts of Facebook Posts, Articles, and Comments on Reports and Articles, showing their sympathy, because I didn't know if they truly felt that way or only posted like that to get attention.
Yet today, I completely lost it. I get a Phone Call from my Mom stating that she just got a phone call from the Elementary that my little sister is going to. The phone call was telling my Mom that today a kid in my sister's 4th grade class brought a gun and knife to school. As soon as I heard that I completely lost it because... Well it could have been a similar incident that happened in Connecticut and I could of lost my little sister... I just couldn't bare the thought of losing her or actually attending a funeral for a 10 year old... So, now I know what most of America felt like... And now the vision won't leave my head or my heart.
Jesus Christ, glad your sister's okay. What the fuck is going on with this goddamn country?
When I think about losing my sisters, I get sick. Especially my youngest one. Just thinking about it, I already know that I would want to die. I would not want to live in a world without my older sister or my two younger ones.
It's not just the US... the world is sick and it's making people sick too.
Sending you all love from here, guys.
well, I have a lot brothers and all of them are older than me... I not sure how I would react, I know that I would be pretty sad and would cry a lot on their funeral, but outside of that I don't know.
I mean, bad things happen everyday, sometimes closer, sometimes far away. After they happen, there's no cameback, we can't change the past, so only thing to do is mourn the lost, deal with it on your own way and move on.
Off course I'm talking hypothetically, if someone lose a brother I wouldn't say that... I would just try to be supportive.
anyway, get better! Be glad that nothing seriously happened to your sister
And the answer to this madness is simple... buy more guns, right?

The idea behind buying more guns is that the people with guns are better able to protect. For example, if the principal had the gun, she could have shot the killer right in the face or something. They're saying that allowing more people to have guns can increase protection because they'd be able to fight back, since guns are more dangerous than knives and shit.
However, I wonder if they know that allowing more people to have guns increase the risk of more people going on a rampage or shooting someone.
Banning guns won't work either because people will refuse to give up their guns and even if they do, they can still get guns in different ways.
I have parents and a brother. (I have more family than that but they abandoned us.) I often have to face the fear that they all might lose themselves in depression. We have so much working against us. My sib has to take on an increased workload to support us all while living with his mistakes at university. My parents aren't allowed to do what they love. Nobody wants to hire a couple of old fogies, even if they have greater mental acuity than their contemporaries who are dragged along by their friends to overpaying do-nothing positions. Every two weeks someone feels unappreciated and/or depressed, and it is so hard to talk them out of it when the world says "in no uncertain terms, fuck you".
I'm more fearful of stress-induced heart attacks or suicides than some anonymous nutcase shooting us. The latter is something that you can't control once the person has an agenda and a gun.
Fuck unconstitutional. People need to focus on safety. I think the blame lies with the mom, for the most part. She taught her kids how to handle guns, and I think she didn't even lock it up. She knew her son was autistic, why teach him ways of guns?
