When will cooler heads prevail to end this madness. Gun free zones are killing zones. Please lets starting using our heads instead or reacting with knee jerk attitudes.

Bruiser2- You're completely right; gun free zones are killing zones. If we were allowed to openly take guns into schools, churches, bars, shopping malls and stadiums, then their would be fewer "knee jerk" reactions. This shooting is a reminder that we obviously don't have enough guns in our lives and instead too many gun laws. All of these blood thirsty teenage males would think twice about bringing a gun to school (since many of them take their lives anyways)!

If Newtown didn't change anything, NOTHING will. Apparently we've decided that mass shootings and the occasional kid or 20 getting gunned down is something we have to tolerate as part of being Americans.

It saddens me to see 26 crosses, when we know that one of the victims - 6 year old Noah Pozner, was Jewish.
