What a tragedy today. There is no reason this shooting should’ve happened. Especially to children. If you haven’t seen the news today there was a shooting in an elementary school in Connecticut this morning. Reports are saying: “at least 27 shot and killed”. About half of those killed were children . . .
It’s truly horrible what happened and its kinda hard to even believe. If children can’t be safe at home, the movies, the mall, or SCHOOL, where CAN they be safe? To quote one of my coworkers, “those kids never had a chance”. He’s absolutely right. There was nothing in place to protect these children.
I just want to say that my thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected by today’s shooting. Nobody should ever have to live through something like this, especially children who more than likely watched as some of their friends were murdered right in front of them.
I don’t think I’ll be leaving my home anymore without one of my pistols tucked inside my coat. I hope something like this never happens again, anywhere, but I wont be caught unprepared if it DOES.
** Update – 2:39pm **
The shooter is believed to be the son of one of the teachers at the school. The teacher, his mother, is among those murdered.
