    @SunnyAutumn:

    I don’t think Rihanna was worried about presents at all. I think she was saying it is absolutely devastating for this to happen at this time of the year. It would be at any time obviously, but Christmas is a time when families should be joining together to celebrate in whatever way they wish whether it be through presents, Christ, food, or just plain love. It is not a time where they should have to be burying a child and returning the gifts they’ll never open

    All gun loving Americans and the politicians who refuse to do something about guns have blood on their hands. Stop being cowards and stand up to the gun lobby!!!

    anna . You are a sucker,a simpleton, and a future slave. May you and your family suffer for your ignorance. You will. I laugh. Your country is involved in 8 wars. Your country kills children in all of those wars . Your country slobbers all over themselves as they say “support the troops” (for what exactly?) as you are only consumed with a comfotable life and consumption of goods.. Your country tortures. Your country kills at will, and YOU support it. You are the worst kind of clueless idiot. God sees your mental laziness and still holds you accountable. YOU will have to answer.
    I will not explain to you how wrong you are because your comment shows your lack of understanding and mindless conformity. You will just have to suffer.

    Dirkstar Says:

    Although several conditions must come together to create such a nightmare, I think, we cannot deny, that
    GUNS are the FINAL condition, that make such massacres come true!
    (Coz´ they are a tool for killing effectively and therefore creating a worst-case-scenario like this!)
    ***
    So they should be prohibited, as a further and VERY EFFECTIVE Risc-Minimizing-Strategy ! (RMS)
    ***
    SAY,
    YES, WE CAN……………….PROHIBIT GUNS!
    …………………………………………………………………..OBAMA !
    COZ´ WE ARE
    PEACEFUL
    AMERICANS !

THE ONLY THING I WANNA SAY IS: WAKE UP AND BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING, BECAUSE SOME WERE THIS HAPPENS EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!

    Shay Says:

    As a person who lives in CT, this is extremely devastating. What the hell was wrong with this man? They were just children. This is not the time to discuss politics and gun control. In time it will be, but this is just 24 hours after it. Let the parents, friends, and community grieve before thrusting a microphone in their faces.

    thenothing Says:

    @well..:

    the death of children by violence, anywhere, at any time, is a tragedy. but refusing to weep for some because others were not accorded the same attention doesn’t lessen the horror that any of those children went through. cry for them all, *******.

    Danilo Says:

    We need to ban all guns. I would bet anybody that right now there are many people planning to do other massacres. The time has come to stop the madness.

    Cherry Heart Says:

    I feel bad for those children, I broke down into prayer as soon as I read the report, but seeing Obama with that speech… and those (fake) tears… Oh, it made me mad.

    Being a leader to a country is like being a parent. A parent to all your people. And it’snot just America, it’s around the world. And when there are incidents out of the country that cost REAL people their childrens lives, you must EXPRESS your solemn sorrow! You can’t walk inside your big white house, say a few words, and only tell a few flags to fly high.

    Those crocodile tears made my blood run cold. So he can cry for those innocent children and still say guns are legal? So he can cry for all our lost children and fellow students and still not reinforce safety for all the important people in our world?

    Being a leader, whether you’re a mother, a father, ateacher, a president, a prime minister… You don’t try and win over your citizens by doing what they want, you win over your subjects (Whether they are your children, or your students, or your parents, or your citizens!) by doing what they need!

    Letting everyone have guns… IT’s disgusting. Being able to show your face on that Television, while those parents are grieving for there children who were MURDERED by GUNS, and not saying ‘we’re going to do somethign about this!’… It’s disgusting.

    And those celebrities… Well, they could have atleast gone over to those children to try and cheer them up.

    My thoughts are going out to all those parents, they’re going out to those siblings, they’re going out to the teachers and children who won’t be having a happy finish to this year. But I hope they know taht God will be taking care of those children and those teachers for as long as he has to.

    The Reality Of War Says:

    The illegally unelected Obama chose a strategic target with Newtown Elementary students to push a gun removal from America, Jared, when it sent their chosen pliable child soldier Lanza in to do the dirty work. Obama and his new KGB have been planning these such strategic hits long before they were enacted and realized. Brainwashing and influence peddling are as old as warfare, Jared, and Obamas job in America is to weaken America into dissolution and forgotten history. Obamas military masters in China know when a minor victory within America is made.

    I don’t know what is more appalling, killing beautiful innocent children and teachers or America’s gun laws. God bless these families, comfort them and strengthen them with your love. RIP

    Tracee Says:

    Knee Jerk, I can’t believe you wrote half, of that. I don’t know who this Anna person is that you commented about but to curse her family and hope that they suffer…….. All I have to say is “I wonder what went through Adam Lanza’s mind when he decided to make all those families suffer by stealing away their children forever, Christmas or not. Killing is evil and not to mention… “EVERY” country has killed. Check yourself before commenting on someone elses ignorance

    Question: Do you laugh at those families grieving today??
