    And they still blame law abiding gun owners

    I'm surprised CBS released the story, yet they will still blame guns and law abiding gun owners. Gun control laws in CT didn't stop it, and none others would either. If all of these draconian laws pass, after the next dereanged maniac does something, they'll cry "ban handguns" or shotguns, or whatever else.

    I've always felt that these psycho-shooters are inspired and encouraged by the media's endless coverage and glorification. When that kid shot up the school, all the networks preempted their regular programing and went on and on about it. You would have thought we were being invaded by space aliens. They had most of the facts wrong but that sure didn't stop them from yapping about the "Tragedy at Sandy Hook" over and over and over.

    I understand this is news and a tragedy and needs to be covered but, really? Just report it and move on. And stop giving the shooter all the publicity. That's just what they want, dead or not. Keep their name and face out of the news as much as possible.

    You can be sure that someone, somewhere, is planning the next mass shooting and will try to outdo that kid or that wacko who shot up the theater in Denver. If you are a loser with nothing to live for, why not go out in a blaze of media glory?

    Media defenetly a HUGE problem. These nut jobs all seem to want to outdo each other. The media makes them an instant celebrity and i makes me sick. Stop naming these freaks and stop showing their pictures is a start

    Demented people will find a way and no amount of Legislation will stop them.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    No one has any idea what motivates someone to go on a spree killing and since guns are an easy target lets ban them first then it will be video games. It’s like a technician with no troubleshooting skills we will just start replacing parts until something fixes the problem.

    The *unofficial* motto of the media is "If it bleeds, it leads".

    There hasn't been any real journalism in quite some time. Just a bunch of talking heads.

    Well at least they got in there he picked the school because it was the easiest target gun free zone. I doubt hed have picked it if there were armed teachers or staff.

    The media certainly shares in the blame for the escalation of these massacres, why do we need to know the name and life histories of these cowards?

    Conversely little or no coverage of how armed law abiding citizens have thwarted other potential mass shootings, "Oregon Mall, Colorado movie theater"

    Just proves the motive of these propaganda networks all controlled by the same sources.

    It is the media's fault. They promote these psychos and give other people the desire to get their few moments of fame, as negative as that fame is. Following their line of thinking we should ban the media.
