It is heartwarming to see so many people trying to support the families in Newtown. But,I must say that most of the gifts,candles,flowers and wreaths are all simply- "symbolism over substance". The tragedy has happened. It was horrific! Now look for and deal with the reasons! Evil is out roaming all around us. Much of it is found in the culture of- "Do your own thing", "If it feels good do it"or "There are no absolutes" The movies of Hollywood,violent video games,criminal entertainment TV,and yes,rap music- available for the youngest to watch and experience-all contribute mightily to the culture of immorality and acceptance of criminal acts! Then we have those in the shadows that slink around on their own,un-noticed,or at least they are e

almost all of the mass killings are done by people coming off of those mind altering drugs. all you have to do is read about the killings and you will see that it was done by people who had mental problems. now those a-holes in washington want to disarm the people and cause thousands of deaths as the idiot said if we just save one person, just how in the h are they going to save the rest bof us???

un-noticed,or at least they are endured in their odd sick mentalities!

Finally we try to blame the weapon (of which there are millions) and rarely take a hard look at the person's behavior and attitudes about right and wrong and good and evil!

I've long said our problems stem from the hippie movement. Look at what half the democrats were doing 40 years ago - all those protesting hippies who never grew up and got a clue are now in our Democratic congress.

There are ABSOLUTES and good and right morals! They are based on a loving God who created this universe and set down the laws for proper living in a civilized society! When people know that there is punishment for evil and immoral acts- they make the effort to resist those acts. If they have no standard values and beliefs in a God who will punish those acts-we have horrific criminal tragedies!

Earlier today I posted an NBC News report about the type of weapons Adam Lanza used during his Sandy Hook rampage. That report was from December 15 and contained false information. According to the Newtown coroner, Lanza used a semi-automatic AR-15, not four handguns as the report said. The entire post has been retracted. I apologize for the error.
