RedNBlue Fans

I do not care if you are Red, Blue or whatever fan, I do hope that we can all agree that we need to send out prayers and/or positive thoughts for the families of the unthinkable act that happened at the CT school today. Sports seems so trival to me as I mourn another mass murder; little Kindergarten babies, their life cut short and adults that died with them. My prayers go out to all of the families as they try to cope with this tragedy. If you have children, be sure to give them a bigger than usual hug; today, we could all use a hug.

Yes, I know I should have typed trivial, however, I can hardly see through the tears and everyone knows what I meant.  Just wanted to correct before corrected, may be more mistakes, don't know or care right now.

You are right about this. Bob Costas was hit with a lot of undeserved hate and flame for speaking to gun violence a couple of weeks ago and I wonder if his attackers feel justified by today's news. I want hunters and home owners to have their guns, don't get me wrong,  selling AKs and  arms designed just to mow down people shouldn't be sold to the general public IMHO.

GY, I agree with you and something needs to be done; the violence has to stop.  I just cannot get over the fact that Kindergarten children were killed in cold blood. It will take a long time for the families to find closure; my heart breaks for all the victims of this tragedy.

Hunter, I think that all of us are in shock and it does bring home that at times we get caught up in things that are not that important.  It is a shame that it takes a tragedy to remind us that bad things do happen to good people. If tears cleanse the soul, mine has gotten a good cleaning today.

I am in total shock, and speechless.  Today Basketball, Football, and many other things do not seem important at all.  My mind cannot fathom this vile act..... 

    Where is sanity, mercy, common sense?      Lost in these thoughts   :(

My prayers go out to all the families of the victims of this horrible situation. This absolutely does make you realize how fragile human life is, again  may the prayers of all of us go out to these families and the community left to deal with the losses

Being a teacher this must truly hit home for you Su,

I can't imagine how hard it must be for the parents, children, teachers, staff and people living in Newtown. How does one write an obituary for a five year old, then write nineteen more? How does a Kindergarten student go back to school after such horrific trauma?  How does the NRA justify the sale of assault weapons?

That is what I think about too CardsRule,

How do you deal with that kind of thing?

I feel so bad for that community that as a country we have to come together on this.

I feel bad as many others do. Let's not get politics involved in it though. A cold blooded killer is a cold blooded killer. Just a few days ago the same thing happened in China. Not with guns but with a knife.
I see your commitment to getting things wrong extends to other topics as well. While it is true that a Chinese madman attacked 20 school children last week, as of Friday, THERE WERE NO FATALITIES. That's the point, guns and particularly assault weapons not only are dramatically more lethal than knives (you wouldn't really think that would be a point up for debate) they have the ability to kill multitudes of people within seconds.

This isn't politics - this is a matter of national security. What do you think the right's reaction would have been if the killer was al-Queda?

It's past time to have a national discussion about how we can eliminate as many guns from our society as possible.

Did I say there were any fatalities? Goes to show you how you twist topics to suit you. Although there were no fatalies, it also goes to show you that a psycho will find any way to kill people. We also need to hold these game machine makers accountable. I understand that this kid was an avid player of some of the most violent games out there. Although the normal person can differientiate real life from make believe, some cant. Alson what kind of qustion is that about al- Queda? Gheesh dude, chill out

Here is exactly what you said,

"Let's not get politics involved in it though. A cold blooded killer is a cold blooded killer. Just a few days ago the same thing happened in China. Not with guns but with a knife."

Obviously, the SAME thing didn't happen as there were 26 people killed in Ct. and 0 in China.  How is that the "SAME" if there are multiple fatalities in one instance and none in the other?  Also it would seem impossible to label someone a "cold blooded killer" when they didn't kill anyone.  Attacks with guns are anything but the "same" as attacks with knives.

 

This is either you half hearing something and being too intellectually lazy to confirm it before you regurgitate it elsewhere or, you knowing precisely the differences in the situations and you post it as a "same" situation because you are intellectually and morally bankrupt.  There really are no other choices.

 

The question about al-Queda was really a simple one.  What do you think the reaction on the right would have been had this been a terrorist attack?  There would not have been any calls to keep politics out of it from you and your ilk, as you would have jumped on Obama with both feet.  It seems clear that you don't want any sort of meaningful national discussion regarding banning weapons yet, you call for video game makers to be held accountable.  You really are a pathetic hypocrite.

Ghost. You are one goofy dude. The same thing happened dingle berry. Kids were attacked. I said with knives not guns. Kids were attacked! Its the same thing. Kids could have been killed in china. You really need to know what you are talking about before I give you the salt and pepper for that little foot is inserted in your big mouth. Now before you get your panties in a wad, I will state that I could care less one way or the other about what they do assault weapons. I dont hunt nor own a gun of any kind. If they are banned...Great! Something does indeed need to be done about these violent games. Kids minds are very easily molded when they are young and these games add to it. They need to think how they are harming our children. I as a father have always watched and monitored what my chidren watched. I am apt to let them see a little nudity than all this violence. These kooky religious people are just the opposite. God forbide a kid seeing a tit but someone blows someone brains out? Its just tv they say. Well its not! Also, just because nobody died in China doesnt mean I cant call him a cold blooded killer. The intent was there. now why bring up al- queda? Dude, let it go. I sense a lot of bitterness in you. Not getting enough EBT?
