News report is saying they were not terrorist!
Seems to me entering an elementary school and shooting it up is the DEFINITION of terror.

PS As for arming teachers pupils etc whats to stop one of them carrying out a mass shooting.
What stopped this madman form shooting up a school...

This school had "buzz" in...all doors locked and entrances monitored by security cameras. You have to hit a buzzer and someone inside must unlock the door.

You can only fix stupid (psycho) with a bullet!!!

No sense in even reading the news yet. The scumbag media will report Elvis did it before this is all over in an attempt to drive up ratings.

Prayers to the families, and children.

I have a daughter in Kindergarten. I set at my desk 5 minutes ago and broke down in tears... I haven't cried in years that I can remember? I wept (and still am) like a baby. I hope the shooters soul burns on hell for eternity. I love my guns, I love my kids. Each child is ours as adults. I would gladly give my life for any one of those kids.

Home Schooling looks better every day! So senseless, cant imagine what makes anyone feel this is the thing that they should ever do.

In the meantime the families need our prayers to get them trough this.
After this post, I am sure there is going to be a tin foil shortage.

That's not going to stop sometime getting in if they want to. A pupil who has legitimate reasons for being at the school and would be buzzed in could carry out a shooting.

I just picked up my 6 year old at the bus stop with tears in my eyes watching him get off. This is a very sad day and my heart goes out to all affected by this tragedy. These events are starting to become all too common and something needs to be done. I'm not gonna get up on a soapbox and start preaching but with the amount of funding taken away from schools has to stop. My wife who is a teacher and a damn good one was laid off last year with 100 others. How can we protect our children if the schools don't have the funds to do so? Metal detectors, guards, even just having more warm bodies in the building....schools can't afford it because of these governors taking money away from them. Gov. Corbet of pa is personally responsible for thousands of teachers being laid off and it makes me sick. Anyway rant off, again my deepest condolences go out to all the families of the victims that didn't get to see their child get off the bus today.
