What a madman. :shock: I'm really hoping these families can stay strong in dealing with their losses, and at the same time, I'm really, REALLY hoping for some gun control law to pass.  With the recent shooting sprees over the past six months, I think we really need it.
Wow, finally. You and PPF are seriously the first Americans I have seen on the internet that don't fire back something like, "Then we should also ban cars because we have a lot of deaths caused by traffic accidents!" Like I said, the people that plan these kinds of shootings are always sick and yes, I don't think people that are mentally well would do such things; but if there isn't really an effective way to keep the guns away only from the sick people, then I think it's kinda selfish of people not to be willing to give up their guns if it means less people, including kids, dying in shootings.
Yeah, exactly.  I've never been big on guns, though.  I'm familiar with the saying "Guns don't kill people, people kill people," but guns make it way too easy to kill people.  Man, those people comparing the gun ban idea to the possibility of a car ban are just stupid if they can even admit that most car-related deaths are accidents, but they can't see the difference between that and purposeful shootings.  Some kind of gun control law just has to be started up in Congress, seriously.

I know I once predicted there'd be a big spike in criminal activity around this time due to all this Mayan Calendar garbage, but now I'm eating my words. This is a tragedy indeed. :(

All I can say is I really, REALLY hope this is the worst of it, considering I'd sort of predicted the same thing.  If we can make it through the next week without any major catastrophe...

I can't imagine what is going through their parents heads right now. Or what is going through those victim's peers either. What an awful awful thing to happen before the holidays. Also, apparently a 36-year old man stabbed 22 kids yesterday in China. This is crazy.  :!:

Why are these people hurting kids of all people.

The mind of a school shooter or serial killer is a hard, if not impossible one to understand.  We can't humanize these types of criminals by assuming that they follow similar logic to the rest of us.  While it's true that they consciously choose to go on this sort of rampage, it's not like they go about the decision like sane people might.  Their understanding of consequences and risk might be a lot different from that of people like us.

That's the Westboro Baptist Church for ya: a cult of hatred that prefers to use their legal knowledge (yes, the "church" is led by a family of lawyers) to troll people in real life in the most despicable ways.  Yes, they're a group of heartless monsters, but unfortunately, any attention given to them only drives them forward.  It's absolutely heartbreaking to see them do things like this, but...

Just seeing "Westboro Baptist Church" in the link is enough to tell me that no good would come out of this article. If you have heard about them before, the Westboro Baptist Church is infamous for protesting certain events like the funerals for deceased soldiers. You can watch videos of them on Youtube where people actually go out to funerals for these fallen men and women and stand their ground to keep the Westboro protesters from interfering with the event. But really, what a sick and twisted following that they have assembled. I don't think they will protest at the end of the day, but it is amazing that they had to nerve to protest it. I know that the community in Sandy Hook will stand their ground though and don't let them interfere with this tragedy.

Holy shit, Anonymous just hacked Westboro! :lol: For once, I'm on Anonymous's side. They're doing this for the right reasons.

And how about this? There was another psycho in Indiana that planned to go after an elementary school in that state! :shock: That guy was arrested though, so thank goodness there.

Oh, I've heard about them before. They protest at fallen soldiers funerals for the same pathetic reasons. So disgusting and heartless, though like TAW said, if we keep feeding them attention, they're just gonna keep going even more.

Why do they think a shooting is good?  :| those weird people. That's not a very nice church if they think that. You should pray to to God to take care of these kids that had their lives taken, not praise that they're gone.

They don't think it's good.  They're just using their twisted doctine to troll people in real life, because if anyone tries to take things to court, they're all lawyers and they've been spreading their hatred just barely within the law.  It would be great if the "church" would just be recognized as a hate group as per the petition RJF linked, but I think all we can do for now is try to support that petition and hope for the best.  Any other attention only drives them forward, because they are basically doing the same thing in real life that trolls do online: hunting for attention.

...Although I am glad to know that Anonymous hacked their site. :lol:

I live within an hour's drive from Newtown and its so weird because you don't ever picture this happening in your own backyard. I also work for the Y in the after school department, so its hard to go to work now knowing something like this has happened. My coworker and I spend each day at work complaining about how a bunch of idiots go on the playground at night, smoke weed and do drugs, picking up needles so that the kids don't step on them or pick them up and cleaning the trash on the playground, and then the kids get me so mad cause they don't listen, they fight over the sports equipment, they are rude to us and one another, but on Friday I just hugged each of them and told them they make me happy to work there everyday.

R.I.P to those poor kids and the staff that put their lives in harms way to make sure the survivors could make it out safely.

Is it worth it to sign that petition? I'll be honest, I haven't signed it (not yet at least) because I fear that giving out my personal information might be bad. I don't want anyone on the internet or the government to know my personal information.
