Way too many of these senseless acts of terror are taking place in our communities, and they are terrorist acts for that's the purpose of the shooters and in many the reason they themselves take their own lives, but this was to the extreme. Children, very young children, the most innocent among us, and we all are their teachers, shot and killed in what can only be called a killing field inside a grade school. And who are the real responsible adults, in this extremely sad case their teachers and teachers aides and administrators within, many killed also, trying to protect against the reign of terror shockingly brought within the walls of, All the first responders, law enforcement, ambulance attendants, fire, doctors, nurses and all others who give communities the service they demand but lately, in these past recent years especially, they have been in focused attacks as the communities demand excellence and immediate action by their service but refuse to pay for that demand service, especially the wealthier among us, just like they do for the veterans of our wars we send them into. Way too much needs to change in this society as it fails like the many before it!!

December 14, 2012 – Statement of Mayor's Against Illegal Guns Co-Chair New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg: "With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it's still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their ABC's are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Read the rest of the press release

Nobody seeks to strip gun owners of their guns, despite the fears laid on them by irresponsible extremist groups that go silent when the terror acts with guns occur then don't condemn these uses of guns but give excuses for why they should be allowed more of same weapons, but weapons that go beyond a need of the hunter or to protect ones self and family in the hands of the irresponsible and immature adults and especially children, and not safely contained, have no use in a civil society other then to kill and maim each other!!
