Sandy Hook Elementary Tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut

I have thought about this terrible tragedy over the weekend and its a terrible thing that happened. Absolutely awful, and I don’t think there are many answers or steps we can take to prevent this from happening again. The facts are that this 20 year old kid, Adam Lanz was a monster. How can someone take 27 lives, 20 of them children and then just off them self. I think he was mentally unstable and snapped just like many others have in the past. I do have something else to say about this as well. It’s not the first time we have seen something like this happen, nor will it probably be the last. It’s getting worse and worse, almost to the point where you hear regular stories on the news and television about these kinds of monstrosities happening. We’ve had Columbine, Virginia Tech, and now Sandy Hook just to name a few.

I have been hearing a lot from both sides on gun control recently, I’ll tell you first hand that conversation will go nowhere and its not a solution either. It happens to be a lose-lose solution no matter which side of the political spectrum you are on. I don’t have the answers, but like most everyone else I think the best solution is prevention. I’m not sure if early detection and prevention is much of a solution in today’s society though? It’s an awful thing that happened and those kids and teachers had their whole lives in front of them.
