    This is the image that will be all over the news for the next several days.
    It is a 223 Bushmaster, the exact weapon used in CT.

    "One officer said the gunman drove to the school in his mother’s car. He said two pistols were found inside the school, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, and that a .223-caliber rifle was found in the back of the car."

    The news that I heard had said he used a Glock and a Sig,both handguns.Interesting that Obummer gets re-elected and now all of a sudden we have these horrific mass slayings.Just what he needed to get his anti-gun agenda rolling.Makes you wonder doesn't it? I wouldn't put anything past him or the goverment.Thats how Hitler rationalized the taking of guns in Poland before he took over the country.It was to lower crime,I look for the same thing to transpire here.

    You are really stretching there michmoe.

    He probably couldn't hide the .223 while trying to pass the front door. Makes one wonder how close he was to his victims. Most novice pistol shooters couldn't even hit themselves. He must have been close, very close.

    Horrific.

    I don't understand the use of body armor, which would suggest an intent to live or at least put up a fight, but then commit suicide before even being confronted by police.

    Setterman, the entire incident took place in two classrooms. Based on the reporting I have seen.

    Body armor?

    Yeah, the same thing was reported about the Colorado movie shooter.

    As many of us suspected, it was nothing more than a load bearing vest and that was confirmed a few days ago.

    And initial reports said the Oregon mall shooter had body armor too. As it turns out he also had a load bearing vest.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and assume this was a domestic situation that spilled over into a school. I wonder if he used his mom's ID to get in.


    Does anyone get the sense that the kids were probably huddled in a corner, sitting ducks...following protocol? I heard on the news an announcement went over the PA, telling the students to "go to their cubbies." I don't even know what that means, but I suspect if it's true and it was all done with handguns, it just seems likely it was execution-style.


    Like the airlines after 9-11, schools will have to rethink their protocols. Maybe "RUN LIKE HELL, JUST RUN" needs to be the new golden rule, instead of huddling up in some corner. If the classroom door has windows and an intruder can shoot their way in, then you either need solid doors...or you better run like hell, because I think Protocol might have played some contributory role in getting 20 kids killed today. No less a conservative outlet than NPR reported at least one teacher was reading stories to her class while this was going on. I highly suspect the reason more classes of kids didn't get wiped out was simply because the shooter snuffed himself before it occurred to him to do more.


    Hard to imagine a worse day than this.

    I can only imagine the pain those parents are going through, thos poor innocent ltlle children never knew the danger they were in, and this kid took their lives because he had an agenda on his mind, I just wish I could bring those little kids back, I cannot keep from crying myself, just imagine what those parents are going through, their kids were in school a supposedly safe place, looking forward to Christmas, everybody who reads this take a moment and pray for those kids and families that will grieve forever because of this piece of sh*t kid, so many lives are changed forever, may god bless those families and God Look over and watch over those children whose lives were taken away from them. I shed my tears for them as I write this.
