Children Forever Traumatized Because Yet Another Gun Toting Lunatic Exalted His ‘Right’ Above Other’s Lives

Reuters reports on yet ANOTHER incident involving some crackpot gun toter:

newtownA shooter on Friday opened fire at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, leading to multiple victims, the Hartfort Courant newspaper reported.  All Newtown schools were placed in lockdown after the shooting, the Newtown Public School District said.  The shooter, an adult, was dead and two handguns were recovered from the scene, NBC News reported without citing a source.  Danbury Hospital had received three patients from the scene, a hospital spokeswoman told NBC Connecticut.  One child was carried from Sandy Hook Elementary School by a police officer, and the child appeared to have been wounded, the town’s weekly newspaper, the Newtown Bee, said on its website.

And all survivors forever traumatized because yet another gun toting lunatic exalted his ‘right’ above other’s lives.  And our society is complicit every single time this happens.  Our lawmakers are, our lax gun laws are, and our courts are.   And still we aren’t sick to death of the sickness.  We want to ‘cure cancer’ because so many are affected by it.  Let’s cure this cancer.

UPDATE:  More than a dozen people were killed– including children.

UPDATE II:  And now the death toll tops 27.  Including little kids.  27….

UPDATE III:  And now, the Telegraph reports 18 of the dead are kids.  I just am so sickened.
