This time a primary school!

As I write this, news is breaking of yet another mass shooting in the U.S.A., this time in a primary school. Early reports ( are that as many as 27 people, including 18 children, have been killed.

One wonders how many more such incidents it is going to take before the politicians and people of the U.S.A. finally wake up to the need to change that country's gun laws. And don’t anybody DARE, at least not on my blog page, to defend those laws.

I am angry, as every other person on this planet should be angry, and I won’t say anything more today.


  1. We are all saddened by the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Unfortunately, incidents like this reinforce the skewed idea that everyone should own a gun--for their own safety and protection. I DO NOT agree. It saddens and sickens me that so many people feel the need to own guns and use them. As we get closer to "the end of the world" next week, gun sales in the States is sky rocketing. Even television shows that normally debunk strange ideas and attempt to offer a "sanity check" have succumbed to the idea that the best way to prepare for what's coming is to stock up on food and water and buy a gun. Sad, strange and scary! There is no defense for gun laws. There is no defense for senseless killing. There is only anger and sadness and a sense of futility here.

  2. My sadness at this incident is profound! How any human being in their right mind or having any human compassion could justify the selling of semi-automatic weapons is incomprehensible. This IS INSANITY! If the news that the mother of this disturbed man actually bought these ghastly things, takes the whole incident into further into the realms of hell. And as for "the end of the world", Colleen, I totally agree - sad strange and scary. Oh this poor world - wonderful potential of Paradise, it is just the people who get in the way
