CBS News: Preliminary report 27 dead, 14 of them children in Newtown school shooting

December 14, 2012

Update: CBS is now going with the original report.

 CBS News is reporting that 27 people are dead, including 14 students, after a shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. The gunman is among the dead.

CBS News’ John Miller reports there is preliminary information that the gunman was the father of one of the students. Miller also says that at least a couple dozen people were shot.

CBS initially headlined 27 dead, 14 of them children but seems to have walked that back in the report. But others have already picked it up – see link below.

NEWTON, Conn. – CBS News is reporting that there are more than two dozen people dead, many of them children in a shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut.

The shooter was killed and apparently had two guns, a person with knowledge of the shooting said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way.

    If only these children had been armed, none of this would have happened.

  2. Patriot says:

    This is Bob Costas’ fault.

  3. Patriot says:

    Now is not the time to talk about gun control.

  4. Ragspierre says:

    And yet…being the asphole you are…

  5. Patriot says:

    This very easily could have been done with a pocket knife.

    • Ragspierre says:

      How many millions of people have been killed with a machete, you stupid, lying moron?

      • Patriot says:

        In the United States, dip shit? Or, in Somalia, your idea of paradise?

        • Ragspierre says:

          See? You are just too stupid and hate-twisted to even step up to reality. Does the nation where it happens matter? No. Only a Collectivist moron would even raise that red herring.

          • Patriot says:

            Ah, so much for American exceptionalism. Sorry to hear that you assholes continue to have such a low view of the United States.

          • Ragspierre says:

            Wow. Amazing lack of ability to even maintain a thread of thinking…!!!

            Wait! I implied you CAN think….!!!! BWAAAAAAAhahahaha…!!

  6. Patriot says:

    The law already prohibits murder.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Yes, and the law in Chicago prohibits possession of a gun.

      So nobody is getting killed in Chicago.

      What an idiot. What a ghoulish, hate-twisted Collectivist monster.

      • Patriot says:

        Yes, I’M the one advocating the right of your fellow travelers to shoot up elementary schools, bars, churches, federal buildings, courthouses, etc.

        How much you wanna bet, fuck stain that your hero in CT owned the guns he killed those fascist children with, legally?

        • Ragspierre says:

          Unlike you, I wait for data…information…before leaping to conclusions.

          You lie. Constantly. As here.

  7. Patriot says:

    Guns don’t kill people.

  8. Patriot says:

    If this fellow really wanted to kill 20-something people, he would have found another way to do it.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Yes, moron, he would. Because he wanted to do that.

      • Patriot says:

        And using guns made his end a hell of a lot easier didn’t it, genius?

        • Ragspierre says:

          A bomb is much easier, you lying POS.

          • Patriot says:

            I see, so guns DIDN’T make your hero’s job easier. And gee, professor, maybe we should regulate bombs too! Before you and your buddies take out an IRS building. Or a federal building in the midwest – again.

          • Ragspierre says:

            See? You just seem incapable of doing anything but lying…and being so stupid it has to burn.

            Typical of your Collectivist moonbattery.

  9. Kudus hi says:

    Fred Thompson thinks that arming everyone with guns and reverse mortgages is the answer.

  10. Ragspierre says:

    What these incidents clearly show is the need for…

    Classroom Control Law.

    Only when you have helpless kids herded into these concentrations do such things happen.

    Ergo, there must be legislation to mandate that children be educated in their homes.

    (Hey, makes more sense than disarming people who abide the law every day!_

    • Patriot says:

      And the thread has devolved to an alleged internet “lawyer” comparing apples to refrigerators. Again.

      • Ragspierre says:

        I’ll just ask anyone who reads this thread to determine when it “devolved” and who the “devolver” is here.

        You can count the minutes after some monster does this kind of thing before some Collectivist ghoul tries to exploit it to strip people of their right to self-defense.

        Way to go, Collectivist monsters.

        • Patriot says:

          Yes, that’s exactly what gun-control advocates what – to strip rubes like you of the right to defend their double-wides. Does it ever concern you that in order to make your “points” you have to misrepresent opposing positions and argue straw men? Like in every instance?

          Probably not. Sociopaths usually aren’t bothered by their mental illness.

  11. Patriot says:

    Remember, when a Real Americans like Ragspierre screams about how much he lurvs FREEEDUM and teh constitushun, this is EXACTLY what he means.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Yes, please. Also, note how this Collectivist ghoul is dancing around here, lying, calling people names, mocking rights and the Constitution, and trying to use these deaths to foster an agenda to strip people of their rights.

      As usual.

  12. tj says:

    This will be the straw the broke the camel’s back.

    Change will come from this there can be no doubt. The conditions that allow these events to happen can not be allowed to continue.

    Forget knee jerk reactions to defend your various views. It is time to set those aside and figure out how to fix this.

    Why are people motivated to do this? The guy wanted to kill his family and take the lives of innocent kids along with them? Why? This is NOT an isolated incident.

    Why do people like this have easy access to automatic weapons?

    • Ragspierre says:

      Why do these massacres typically occur in “gun-free zones”?

      Do you even know WTF an “automatic weapon” IS?

      Poor, hysterical moron…

      • Sirkowski says:

        If children were armed with semi-automatics there would be no more gun violence in schools.

        • Ragspierre says:

          Sure there would.

          Because people have the right to express themselves doesn’t silence idiots like you.

        • Ragspierre says:

          My father and his schoolmates often brought their guns to school. They would hunt on the way to and from school to bring meat home during the Depression.

          I went fired on a rifle team in high school, using weapons kept there and belonging to the school.

          Nobody shot anybody in either case. Ever.

  13. Sirkowski says:

    At least all these children died happy that their 2nd Amendment was protected.

    • Ragspierre says:

      I imagine they died in terror, just like the adults here.

      Just like they would have if trapped in a confined space with someone with a straight razor.

      You moron.

  14. Ragspierre says:

    Hmm… Looks like Parrotrot was as wrong with that stupid ASSumption as it is about everything else…

    Seems the killer had to kill to get the guns he used in violation of every law or norm of Western civilization existent.
