Dan Pintamo · Romeo, Michigan I've been considering getting a hand gun (along with the proper training) and a concealed weapons permit for some time now. What happened today at the school in CT and a couple days ago at the mall in Oregon have convinced me to go ahead and do it. Who else is going to protect me or my family. A psycho like today's shooter could walk into any place of business, or school, I don't want to be cowering in a corner watching innocents be slaughtered. I wish someone in that school would have had a gun. I'm sure we would still be hearing about a tragedy but maybe they could have limited the number of little kids killed.

A masked man dressed in black entered an elementary school today in Newtown, Connecticut and opened fire with two handguns, killing a reported 26 people, 18 children and 8 adults. The shooter is dead. Law enforcement is expected to hold a news conference shortly. We'll keep you updated.


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

One entire classroom is unaccounted for, sources said.
