Better find a way to live with firearms. It's not unreasonable to imagine a future where 3d printers are ubiquitious, and people are already making working lower recievers with them. We don't have a choice going forward any more than Sony had a choice wrt to mp3s.

Ok, they are now saying Ryan Lanza is alive and in custody, that his younger brother Adam was the shooter and is dead.
 
2012-12-14 03:36:06 PM
How about we post the happiest moments in our lives instead of talking about this evil?

CBS News reports the gunman, identified as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, was the son of a female teacher at the school who was killed in the mass shooting.

Bad editing here. Are they saying the gunman is dead? Or his mom, or both?
 
2012-12-14 03:36:44 PM
Adam Lanza.

This sums up how I feel about this:
"This will be my only post today. We are shocked and horrified by the news coming out of Connecticut. When senseless violence takes the most innocent of lives, our grief is all the deeper.

Many will seek to turn their outrage to action. But now is not the time for politics. Let us instead reflect upon what was lost today, and first grieve together for the victims, many of whom were just children." ~George Takei via Facebook.

My rage will boil in a few minutes, impotent as it may be.

This. And a second body was found at the home.
 
2012-12-14 03:37:20 PM
What's this about Adam Lanza?
 
2012-12-14 03:37:27 PM
At this point, can we just agree that none of the media outlets are reporting this correctly and all we know are a bunch of people are dead?
 
2012-12-14 03:37:34 PM
Foxnews still has the wrong guys photo plastered on their site..
 
2012-12-14 03:37:58 PM
Today isn't the day for politics, but I would like to see a congressional report or an executive report on mass shootings and the motives, actors, and so on, for the last ten years or so.

Moonfisher: Ok, they are now saying Ryan Lanza is alive and in custody, that his younger brother Adam was the shooter and is dead.


No, Ryan Lanza is dead and his brother is being held for questioning.
 
2012-12-14 03:38:01 PM
We should reassign the TSA to protect our public schools.
 
2012-12-14 03:38:02 PM
From the earlier thread...my point was that most animals don't kill their own like humans kill their own. So I misspoke on that point.

But, then, the nutbars who think this happened because of evolution being taught in schools or that there wasn't prayer in public schools, like Bryan Fischer is already blaring on his AFA broadcast...they are both tiring and infuriating, and lead one to at the very least misspeak...

so half of all the news organizations' information was wrong :P

This is what happens when you let Jedi be a religion.
 
2012-12-14 03:38:28 PM
I would like to buy a round for everyone.

Also, cmon, if this wasn't holiday season and everyone wasn't goofing off at work these threads would be dismal and not so busy...

Ryan Lanza that was posted from FB may be the shooters brother. Police are saying Ryan Lanza is in custody.

It never is.

No, Ryan Lanza is dead and his brother is being held for questioning.


Wait what?

News reports that Lanza killed himself

Farking coward
 
2012-12-14 03:38:39 PM
Did he use a .88 Magnum?
 
2012-12-14 03:38:44 PM
With this and what happened in China, is there nothing to help the mentally unstable at all?
 
2012-12-14 03:38:53 PM

special20: We should reassign the TSA to protect our public schools.


The sad thing is that this isn't such a bad idea at this point.
 
2012-12-14 03:38:56 PM
It's being reported that the gunman was repeatedly yelling "CLACKA AKBAR!" as he fired shots into the crowd of children.

A second Lanza has just hit the.....

/I can't even finish this.

Moderator: At this point in time information is coming in fast and we understand that you may want to link to a Facebook page or other information about the shooter.  Please try to refrain from doing so.  It is personal information, and it may link to innocent people unrelated to this tragedy.  Thank you for your consideration. 


One poor dude with the same name already has been blamed lots today. Good call.

If that's true, good LORD did the news outlets fark up

Feel that? That's freedom.

The report I just read said his brother was found dead at the house.
 
2012-12-14 03:39:25 PM
Ryan Lanza says it wasn't him on Facebook, so I guess that answers that.

Fox news just broke the "assault rifle" cherry. Apparently an M4, but that that with a grain of salt. Both weapons were registered to the mother of the shooter, and unless she's a SWAT member, it was a semiautomatic rifle.
 
2012-12-14 03:39:33 PM
Connecticut teacher here.

Really sad event. My sane s's cannot be expressed.
 
2012-12-14 03:39:40 PM
This bastard killed his mother and brother, too.
 
2012-12-14 03:39:50 PM
Got home from work, got on the internet, and...

...

I agree w. the 2nd headline, there are no words...
 
2012-12-14 03:39:50 PM

Negligible: At this point, can we just agree that none of the media outlets are reporting this correctly and all we know are a bunch of people are dead?


There's too much information and the people who actually know what's going on are far too busy doing important work to worry about making sure the information getting out to us nobodies is accurate, which I think we can all agree is just fine.
 
2012-12-14 03:39:55 PM
80,000 people die every year in the U.S. from alcohol related events. Reaction... meh who cares
30,000 from car accidents.. meh
3,000,000 die around the world from std's. meh
16,000 children die each DAY from starvation.. meh
1,000,000 die in the middle east because of a lie.. meh

This is the one time that I disagree with George Takei. Outrage leads to action, and a resolution. Introspection leads to apathy, and continuation. I don't want this to continue.

Didn't take long.While I was in the break room watching a replay of Obama's press conference, one of the rednecky warehouse guys said "Farking fake tears!" before storming out.
 
2012-12-14 03:40:04 PM
Ok - this is why they should STFU for a few hours and get their FING story right
 
2012-12-14 03:40:04 PM
What's more evil, a mentally ill person who could have been stopped by even a merely adequate mental healthcare system, or a healthcare system for profit that denies thousands of people coverage every day?

Not saying the shooter was mentally ill, but I just can't fathom how one could do this without something being wrong in their brain.
 
2012-12-14 03:40:06 PM
The press conference shuffle.
 
2012-12-14 03:40:08 PM
I keep coming back to The Onion article while I'm watching this. We'll blame something, call it a day, do nothing and let the cycle repeat.

It's probably going to happen with this and that's what infuriates me the most.
 
2012-12-14 03:40:16 PM
I just read that the second guy found in the woods was the shooter's younger brother and their mother taught at the school.
 
2012-12-14 03:40:19 PM
CNN reporting that shooter's brother found dead in Hoboken.

I thought his bro was in custody, or is this a different sibling? So he killed his mom, his bro is dead in another city. WTF just happened? Maybe the brother committed suicide when he got the news.

Lundyn: The sad thing is that this isn't such a bad idea at this point.


No, its a horrible point. Especially since the TSA shouldn't exist in the first place.

eddievercetti: is there nothing to help the mentally unstable at all?


Not in China and not much in the US.

Of course he did.
