the sandy hook shooting

Sandy Hook Promise is a nonprofit organisation developed by the family members of victims and survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children aged between six and seven-years-old. He also killed six staff members, his mother, and then himself.

This PSA titled “Evan” was released by Sandy Hook Promise. It cleverly shows how very easy it is to miss the warning signs that somebody could be planning a mass shooting. It promotes the Sandy Hook Promise “Know the Signs” programmes which they run free of charge. They’re intended to teach parents and teachers how to identify if somebody needs help. Thank you to @cryptid-wendigo to showing me this video.

School/University Shooter Voices
School/University Shooter Voices

Audio recordings of various school or university shooters. Note: Elliot Rodger isn’t necessarily a school/university shooter, as his attack was only on the campus, and three of his victims were stabbed to death, not shot.  Still fits into the theme, in my opinion.

In chronological order: Kip Kinkel (1998) - Dylan Klebold (†1999) - Eric Harris (†1999) - Seung-hui Cho (†2007) - Pekka-Eric Auvinen (†2007) - TJ Lane (2012) - Adam Lanza (†2012) - Elliot Rodger (†2014) - Dylann Roof (2015)

ok but being interested in serial killers/mass shooters is cool and stuff like same here do that but fucking telling how you wish they would rape you/kill you/blow up the school/calling them daddy or anything similar is so uncomfortable and ugly please just stop stop stop. studying about their mind is alright, feeling bad for them because you know a thing or two about their life is also alright, but please know the limits.

This Day in True Crime

14 December: the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting

Between 9:35 and 9:40am on 14 December 2012, Adam Peter Lanza, a 20-year-old white male, murdered his mother and then drove to the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. With a Bushmaster XM-15 and a .223 caliber semi-automatic rifle, Lanza killed 20 children aged six to seven years old as well as six faculty members. Lanza then shot himself in the head. This incident was the deadliest mass shooting to take place at a school and the third-deadliest shooting by a single person in United States history.

republicans: give trump a chance. we obstructed obama for 8 years. we blocked his jobs bills, blocked his infrastructure bills, voted to repeal obamacare over 50 times, fought gun control after sandy hook & the pulse nightclub shootings, gutted the voting rights act, passed new voter suppression laws, cut funding to daycare & food assistance programs, waged a war on women, fought marriage equality, courted the votes of neo-nazis, we elected a serial rapist who wants to put muslim american citizens in internment camps, and we’re still blocking a scotus nominee that was legitimately obama’s to pick. but don’t worry democrats, this time we’re gonna play fair & let you kick the football. honest :)

democrats: ok

A neurological/developmental evaluation in early April 1997, just before Adam’s fifth birthday, noted that Adam was an extremely active young child—he never slept through the night, continued to make up his own language, and reportedly did not like to be held, kissed or hugged. He was observed and reported to have odd repetitive behaviors and severe temper tantrums. Adam was reported, at times, to “sit and hit his head repeatedly.” He did not tolerate touch or textures and refused to dress. Teachers reported Adam was “very quiet during groups.

House Republicans vote to ease firearm background checks

  • House Republicans Thursday voted to roll back a regulation that sought to prevent those with mental-health problems from purchasing guns

  • The rule forced the Social Security Administration to identify beneficiaries deemed incapable of managing their own finances, and add them to the national background check system that determines whether people are allowed to buy a gun.
  • Republicans said the bill unfairly targeted disabled people. Read more
