    Shooting Reported at Newtown School | NBC Connecticut

    An elementary school.
    Inevitable?

    Hope no one dies.

    Again, the price of freedom. Just like car accidents, we are starting to expect these and move on after the initial "Awwwwww".

    It is the price we pay for our second amendment rights. America has long ago accepted that we are willing to accept these shootings so as not to impede the rights of citizens to be armed

    Car accidents are accidents. Random shootings are more the result of people being so self centered that nothing matters but them. Sort of like the way the unions shut down airports and close freeways. It's all about them. They aren't getting what they think they are entitled to. Even the nutcases believe they are entitled to feel good and if they don't, it's someone's fault and everyone should be punished.

    Reports are now that the gunman is dead. The pity is, gunmen get to keep shooting until the police show up and terminate the threat. Lives would be saved and injuries prevented if someone with a gun acted earlier. A principle, a teacher, an armed guard, someone, rather than stand around waiting to die until the police get there.

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

    It's the price we pay. Except for those directly involved, this is just another day. OK?
