2. Adam Lanza: The "Quiet Type"
ASTRONAUT ,   ME, USA   (12.15.12)
The pattern emerges once again: Behavior disorders throughout childhood. A bright, intelligent child; but a loner, a "geek" who kept to himself, "was never really sociable." On meds? Maybe, maybe not. Estranged parents: always a big factor in childhood anguish (did I cause their fights? Was I not good enough for them to stay married?). Interesting that Mommy was a Kindergarten teacher; filling her life with "new children" each September, while her growing son became what, "too old for Mothering?" The boy may have perceived Mommy's little "kinder" as threats, sibling rivals who "took his Mommy away" every school day while he languished in his own psychological disorders for years - until his anguish turned to ANGER, and hence, the resultant final Act Of Despair. And where was Daddy all this time? How significant a role did he play in Adam's childhood and adolescence? Media mavens, please: Stop with the Gun Control argument and look instead to The Parenting Factor. We're all born innocent; our lives and futures lie in the hands and hearts of our parents.
3. Who was responsible for Security at the Newtown School?
Joe Oberman ,   Providence, RI   (12.15.12)
CONNECTICUT STATE STATUES: CHAPTER 529 * DIVISION OF STATE POLICE Sec. 29-37i. (Formerly Sec. 29-37c). Responsibilities re storage of loaded firearms with respect to minors. No person shall store or keep any loaded firearm on any premises under his control if he knows or reasonably should know that a minor is likely to gain access to the firearm without the permission of the parent or guardian of the minor unless such person (1) keeps the firearm in a securely locked box or other container or in a location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure or (2) carries the firearm on his person or within such close proximity thereto that he can readily retrieve and use it as if he carried it on his person. For the purposes of this section, "minor" means any person under the age of sixteen years. Good can imagine Evil, but Evil cannot imagine Good. ~ W. H. Auden The town officials are responsible for the students safety and yesterday they ALL failed to provide security. If there was but one entrance (called an ECP entry control point) and an armed security officer screening (handbags, backpacks and even trench coats, etc.) each and every person who entered our schools, this could have been prevented by this first line of defense. Police are NOT proactive, they are reactive. Police can not be everywhere 24/7 to protect and serve, though they may try. There is a second line of defense but no one wants to know what it is. Your prisons, court rooms, police stations have better protection than schools, movie theaters, malls, beaches, etc. Police have protection, everyone else... you're on your own.
4. This article is GARBAGE
PO ,   Rome, Italy   (12.15.12)
As journalist and firearms collector this article is a collection of stereotypes and nonsenses that should NOT appear in any serious newspaper.
Evil bastard.
6. Check out "Dynasty Warriors"
Steve   (12.15.12)
These are the kinds of violent images American children are into.
7. #1 right to bear arms
The right to bear arms is for preserving democracy by allowing the people to defend themselves against the government if needs be. Israel started as a socialist country, where "the government knows best". The people are not allowed to defend themselves against government
8. dont know to laugh or cry
alsky ,   toronto   (12.15.12)
when you grow up in a culture that promotes guns and viloence- you get shootings. Its not rocket science. Americans will never learn !
9. Google this
Devorah   (12.15.12)
"Psychiatry goes insane: Every human emotion now classified as a mental disorder in new psychiatric manual DSM-5" And let's not address evil for what it is. No, let's call it a mental illness so that BIG PHARMA can push through a mind-warping drug to treat it. And let's excuse evil behaviour by blaming one's childhood experiences. How many children went through Shoah? How many of them became mass murderers? How many? I can't hear you.
10. @#7 the right to bear arms
Citizen ,   USA   (12.15.12)
First of all the right to bear arms was for our protection against the british gov at the time and was written into law because we had no formal army and militia were needed to protect themselves from the british gov. I don't see the US gov coming into anyones homes and killing them for no reason any time soon! so that argument IS BULL S*** you want the right to bear arms you want to preserve democracy JOIN THE US ARMY and then go fight for it. don't be a lazy shmo on the sofa all day and have a M4 (this is not a sport weapon its intended to kill humans!) In Israel people know what gun safety is unlike americans who just want it to have it! In israel people served in combat units in the army and even if they were not in combat units they still do basic training and learn about gun safety. I think it is absurd that citizens can have such powerful weapons without the need for it. Gun violence is the highest in the US more then some 3rd world countries in Africa that are undergoing civil wars! I guess if you believe in the zombie apocalypse then you'll be ok!
11. Adam Lanza- massmurderer of children
mimi jacques ,   oob,usa   (12.15.12)
Schools in US are supposed to be locked for safety and security. Puzzing someone's adult child or ex-husband/wife or any litigant in w/o any checks should be item #1 before taking arms away from lawabiding citizens. If Adam Lanza wanted to see his mother at school-it had been proper (make it a security procedure)for the guardian at door to call the mother (teacher) or having been notified of her absence iahead of time.- and her her come out to see the querant (her son) since no one should be above suspicion. The mother Nancy hid apparently all her problems w/o notifying authorities regarding her son Adam who had real behavioral problems. Instead of speaking gun laws first- stop the miscreants from entering the safe-zones of schools. No outsider admitted without being escorted by teachers/t.a.'s, janitors etc. after they personally come to the closed door and take responsibility of ushering anyone in.Everyone's heart is broken for the little kids who were executed pointblank and whom their parents could not save. and the survivors'road back of feeling safe will be long and arduous .
12. 1 Natan, Israel: There are communists in leadersip
positions in Israel,as well as socialists. Communists and Socialists do not want the people armed because that way they can slaughter them if they want to like Communists in Russia slaughtered 30 million people under Stalinn and China slaughtered 70 million people under Mao Tse Tung and Cambodia slaughtered a million people under Pol Pot and who knows how may people Fidel Castro slaughtered in Cuba. That is the danger of regimes that are too far left or too far right since the Nazis of Germany and Italy were fascists, far right governments.
13. The name LANZA means "one who is a mercenary for the
Rivkah   (12.15.12)
German army." This is a warning from HaShem since anciently Assyrians migrated to Bavaria. It was Assyria anciently that invaded and took Israel (Northern Kingdom) into captivity. There are many German troops in America and much of the Luftwaffe is in America, too, flying cover over cities since the US government does not trust US pilots to shoot down airliners or strafe cities if necessary. After WWII, German scientists and other Nazis were brought to America to do here what was done there: rockets with NASA, biological warfare, medical experiments on children (orphans and foster care children, mostly), and other Frankenstein changes in the nation. Wouldn't surprise me if Monsanto has Germans running to create Frankenfoods to slowly destroy the reproduction of humans and animals as well as cause tumors. Many Americans are of German descent and sympathize with Nazi objectives thwarted by Hitler's defeat in WWII. The leopard on the head of the beast of Daniel chapter 7 has four leopard heads for four Reichs of Germany. The fourth Reich is rising, partly in America. There are German military bases in America, such as at Alamagordo, New Mexico, that fly the German flag at the gate...El Paso, Texas...Renton, Virginia. Germany will not stop until they rise again and are defeated again. This shooting is a warning of the Assyrians rising again, just as the warnings in the DVD " Isaiah 9:10 Judgment" by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn.
14. No 6
A Shvitzer ,   Israel   (12.15.12)
And Israeli children don't play these games ??? Do me a favour!!
15. According to one report that I read
Avishai ,   Tel Aviv   (12.15.12)
Security consisted of ringing a door bell and then going to sign in. This report has not been confirmed yet, but if it is true... This is insane!
16. The cloudsman Medias Never tell us the real core truths
Zzob ,   Ashqelon, Israel   (12.15.12)
Gun control isn't needed by the 70+ Million law obeying gun owners in the USA. With 4+ Million gun-laws, obviously they do Not work! It is a human Moral issue that No law can curtail! Removing the 10 commandments from Schools hasn't done you ppl well because your moral compass is completely broken. Look at your leaders, they Don't have a clue how to deal with it properly! Not a clue!!!
17. With episodes like this, who needs terrorism?
frauss ,   Jerusalem   (12.15.12)
18. @13 out of respect for the dead take a time out!
Ynet y do u publish her garbage?
19. 18 HaShem rebuke you!
Rivkah   (12.15.12)
20. How many Jewish children were killed? The Rabbi was there
for the Jewish families that lost children. Was this an anti-semitic shooting? Was that the intent?
21. #13 Rivkah
The name "Lanza" is of Italian origin and, although sounding similar, has no connection to the word "Landser" - a German foot soldier.
22. Is no 13 an aquintance of the killer?
Some serious stuff are running through your head rivkahle!
23. Mary Ann JACOB is the name of the Sandy Hook School librar
Rivkah   (12.15.12)
ian who hid 14 children in a storage room she barricaded with a book shelf. How many children killed were Jewish? Was this an anti-semitic shooting event targeting a school with Jewish teachers and librarian and students that was known to have a lot of Jews in it? Lanza is a Roman Catholic Italian heritage and I know from personal experience the hatred of anti-semitic Roman Catholics is unimaginable. Adolf Hitler and Pope Pius during WWII were Catholic and anti-semitic. Maybe the target practice the mother took her sons to to practice shooting was of pretend-Jewish targets. I have been attacked in many ways by anti-semitic Catholics and atheists and the hatred of Jews which is actually a hatred of Yahweh God is unimaginable.
24. I need to buy a gun if only to shoot Rivkah's keyboard !!
Sane Person ,   United States   (12.15.12)
25. Really, "Astronaut, Me"
Some Girl ,   Canada   (12.15.12)
Yea, parenting is big deal. But really, gun control is pretty equal. These screwed up kids couldn't get access..
26. No 6: Do you a favor?
Steve   (12.15.12)
What sort of favor do you have in mind A Shvitzer? Little doubt millions of American and Israeli youth are absorbed by violence on TV, Internet, etc. Same holds true with pornography, bestiality, etc.? In the Muslim world, many like to watch beheadings and other graphic images, so we read. Is it a good way to spend one's time A. Shivtzer? My guess is if you were an honest man or woman you would say "No, it is not the best way to spend one's time." If a young adult is of sound mind and body, it might not be too damaging. On the other hand, what if the young adult is not of sound mind, but "a little off?" You would recommend him absorbing himself in this kind of bloody violence nearly 24/7?
27. Sorry, my last post was directed to #14
Steve   (12.15.12)
28. Collecting Guns
Jacob E ,   Holon, Israel   (12.15.12)
If you collect guns, you shouldn't be using them. If you want one for personal security, fine. But if I collected guns, I would remove all the mechanisms to fire them. I wouldn't keep ammunition around the house. I also wouldn't collect generic guns like a glock. Maybe an old musket or cowboy revolver, maybe a Walther signed by various James Bond actors. But that's it.
29. Very inteligent, but few words ?
Nora Tel Aviv   (12.15.12)
Check: Autistic savant syndrome.
30. Nora #29: few words....
Steve   (12.15.12)
Very "clever" people also utter few words. I have met a few of these over the years. Good people; honest people are an open book. Clever people know the fewer the words, the less they reveal about their disturbed selves.
