What kind of psycho would kill little elementary school kids?

Twenty-seven people, including 18 children, have been killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, according to the Associated Press.

The report cites an official with knowledge of the situation.

Sources told The Courant that there are at least 20 shooting victims. Many of the shootings took place in a kindergarten classroom, sources said.


The shooter is dead, according to police, and the school is now secure.

Questions remain, however. Who would want to kill little kids?

Please keep these people in your hearts, thoughts, prayers, etc.

UPDATE: It didn’t take long for festering pieces of dog excrement to crawl out from under their rocks and ridicule… RIDICULE… the shooting with sarcastic remarks about gun control! Way to score political points, dickhead! h/t: Twitchy

David Frum: Shooting at CT elementary school. Obviously, we need to lower the age limit for concealed carry so toddlers can defend themselves.

UPDATE 2: CBS reports the gunman was found dead inside the building from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and that one of the adult victims is the suspect’s mother and a teacher at the school.

UPDATE 3: Another CBS report says the gunman was a 20 year old male from New Jersey. A .223 caliber rifle was found. A potential second shooter is in custody.

UPDATE 4: Frum is even more of an idiot than we originally thought. His latest Tweet: I won’t accept lectures about shooting “sensitivity” from those who enable the shootings in the first place

My reply: @davidfrum And I won’t accept idiotic sarcasm from someone who actually thinks law-abiding citizens who treasure their rights cause violence

Not enough characters left to spell out, “D-O-U-C-H-E-B-A-G”

UPDATE 4: Shooter identified as Adam Lanza; younger brother is being held for questioning as a possible second shooter. Ryan Lanza was widely reported to have been the shooter initially.

UPDATE 5: Fox reports both parents of Adam Lanza, 24, were found dead at separate locations after he opened fire at the school.

UPDATE 6: As a friend has stated, monsters are not just American.

Twenty two children stabbed at a Chinese elementary school.
