Breaking: 25 dead in elementary school shooting in Newton, CT

Enough is enough–how many school shootings will there be before we wake-up and tackle gun culture for what it is and address the impact it has on human lives.

One state official said that an adult gunman was believed to be dead in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The gunman was in possession of at least two firearms, the official said. There was some speculation that there were two gunmen involved in the mass shooting.

A student at the school told an NBC affiliate in Connecticut: “I was in the gym and I heard like seven loud booms, and the gym teachers told us to go in the corner and we huddled. We all heard these booming noises, and we started crying. So the gym teachers told us to go into the office where no one could find us. Then a police officer told us to run outside.”

    I agree that we need more stringent and national gun control. Allowing someone to transport guns legally purchased in one state into another will not deter gun violence. I do have a concern. This approach needs to be used in conjunction with and not instead of treating mental health issues and suicide prevention for men.
