I believe that stricter gun control laws are not the answer to this situation. Less media attention would probably make people less likely to copy cat such terrible and tragic events that have continued since Columbine in 1999. Maybe we should forget the killer's name today but I think we should have known it before he took so many innocent lives. We as a society should have helped this young man that neighbors called, "troubled for a long time." This was a young man in trouble. We should have reached out with kindness and help. The mental health of our nation is not good. I agree that instead of pointing fingers at the gun, or blaming video games, instead.

(SORRY ) instead of talking about the evil involved in the killings maybe we need to find the root of where the evil is coming from and treat it with compassion, counseling and in some cases medicine before other lives are lost.

My heart is sick. I feel so sorry for the children who were murdered, as well as the parents and loved ones of the slain kids and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. All of us here in the U.S.—who still have a soul—pray for those whose lives were just senselessly shattered.

But imagine if at least one teacher (with a concealed weapons permit) had their .40-caliber Glock with them, locked and loaded, when this weed Adam Lanza began his murderous mayhem Friday on the Sandy Hook Elementary School campus. What would have happened differently?

Would...
