Heartbreaking!

Both happened yesterday
China stabbing: 22 schoolchildren & 1 adult. Male attacker in custody.
Connecticut shooting: 21 schoolchildren, 6 adults. Attacker dead (suicide)

It's not about gun or knife control it's about these people choosing to use them in such a horrific manner! Heartbreaking that so many loves were lost, so many children witnessed these horrific events.

Makes me wanna grab my babies and hold them tight and never let go. But I know we can't live in the fear of "what if". Tucson shooting, school shootings, home invasions, Batman premier....no where is sacred, no where is safe anymore!

Hi Jess, I'm Angel welcome to the group!
I have four boys 4-14. I nursed them until they were two.

What a sad world we live in... anything can happen to anyone anywhere because of the people with the weapons, not because of the weapons.

I totally agree!
Late last night I seen they had released the victims names, and some families had shown photos. Made me cry harder. Smh, ill never understand anyone taking the life of an innocent, defenseless child

I know both are so very sad. It is very scary to know you cannot go anywhere and be safe.

Tight controls mean that gun crimes are rare in China and make knives and sometimes explosives the weapons used in mass attacks in China.
