The writting on the wall for a tragedy like this has unfortunately been there now for a while. I hope there are widespread actions mandated and funded by the government to make schools more secure, inside and out. It's sad a school has to be treated like a maximum security prison.

It makes me want to leave work right now, go find my twins boys at school and hug the hell outta them.

Doing the same thing, brother. Actually had to remove myself from my classroom for a minute to compose. Have an 11-yr, 3-yr and 5-mo old. Feel like someone's kicked me in the gut ... what the victims are feeling ... I don't know, y'all.
Schools have to be safe. They have to be. I can't kiss my kids bye in the morning and watch them get taken out by medics in the afternoon.
This world ...
Anybody give a shit right now about the Cleveland Browns or point spreads or that petty argument you had with someone you love?
I feel sick to my stomach. Prayers sent to all. God bless them all.
I've got firsthand experience in what the death of a child does to a person and their family. This POS has no clue the magnitude of the nightmare he's forced on hundreds of people.
I literally don't know what emotion to feel, right now. I keep going from angry to sad-I can't imagine what the parents are going through.
God I hope that bastard died slow, but I'm sure he didn't......
I sure don't now. This is sick. How can someone be so mentally ill and nothing be done to help them.
And I don't want their parents coming out saying that, oh he was a good kid blah blah. He or they can't have been this ill overnight.
I know exactly what you mean. It's a feeling that is inexplicable. I can't even imagine what those in CT are feeling.
I've been teaching my 5yo about constant situational awareness and this is going to force me to up those efforts. Feeling the need to take military training and teach a watered down version to a child speaks volumes about the state of affairs in our world.
How someone can walk into a kindergarten class and kill everyone is beyond incomprehensible. I cannot imagine the heartbreak of the families involved. A class of kindergarten students!! I pray God gives the families the strength to endure this unthinkable tragedy. Prayers to all!
Saying he murdered one of his parents before going to the school
i'm the last person you'd expect to see cry over anything, and i'm having a tough time here
Terrible Terrible news
Sounds like this is the guy :(. Correction: seems this is the brother they are now saying but I can't see a way to delete on phone.

stereotypical mass murderer. trenchcoat wearing gamer. what is with this breed?
NBC News: Parent of suspected shooter found dead in suspect's home.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
WCBS-TV reports that shooter's mother was teacher at school, many of the victims apparently her students
This makes no sense. Why would a dad go shoot up a elementary school? The world really is insane.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
The sad thing is that this guy probably got this idea from the shootings in Colorado. Unfortunitly, some messed up dude is sitting at home right now watching this coverage and thinking about doing the same thing. I have never been a guy that wants more gun controll. But this crap sure makes me wonder if something needs to be done. I mean how big of mass shooting will it take before something is done. Do 27 people have to die, maybe 57, or is the number an even 100 before we make it more difficult for these nut jobs to get their hands on guns. I know they will get them either way, but something has to be done. I just don't know what. Sad Sad Day!!!!!
i wonder if he thought she loved her students more than her own son
Please don't. Both of you. Now isn't the time.
I'm a huge, HUGE supporter of the 2nd Amendment and I now agree in principle to finding a way to restrict firearm access (for certain groups, at least). But, these "nut jobs" will find a way to carry out their demonic plans regardless. The largest school massacre in US history was in 1927 at the hands of a former board member using explosives.
Also, at what point (assuming the "gamer" stereotype plays out) are we going to realize that super realistic (except for the actual death), kill-everything-in-sight likely aren't good for people with any form of mental instability?
But, like the above poster said - now is not the time.

We pay a very heavy price for our near religious belief in the right to bear arms. I'm sure many will pounce on me for even questioning the cost/benefit of this right, but to suggest that it doesn't come at a high cost in blood is being naive at best and intellectually dishonest at worst.
