glee shooting star newtown

During last night's Glee titled Shooting Star, showrunner Ryan Murphy and his fellow gleeks dealt with an extremely sensitive, disturbing subject barely 4 months after the unspeakably awful incident occured at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT.

And unsurprisingly, some in the Newtown community are upset; not so much by the way Glee handled the idea of a school shooting, but because no one from the show reached out to anyone in Newtown to provide some sort of warning or framework of how best to deal with the episode while watching it with their kids.

Parent Andrew Paley expressed:

Fresh Prince Theme Song Confused For School Shooting Threat! Entire Pennsylvania Town Goes Into Lockdown!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!Will SmithViolenceScary!School

WOW! Talk about an OOPSIE DAISY!

But hey! At least we now know the town of Ambridge, Pennsylvania hosts a community full of incredibly fast-moving, vigilant individuals!

Even if they all have somehow been under a rock for the past 20-something years!

Confused?! Allow us to explain:

Apparently, the town's High School had one serious scare earlier in the week after a student's cell phone's voicemail, which featured him rapping a few lines of the now-iconic Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song, was confused by a medical receptionist calling to confirm an optometrist appointment to be a THREAT to shoot down the entire student body…and resulted in a mass lock-down of the district and set police into a FRENZY!

Another unthinkable tragedy.

A 14 year-old boy was shot at Price Middle School in Atlanta this afternoon when a gunman opened fire for reasons currently unknown. Police arrested the suspect, who is another student, at the scene.

Mercifully, the unnamed young victim was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors found him "alert, conscious and breathing."

President Barack Obama Unveils Strongest Gun Control Agenda In Years!

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

President Barack Obama is proposing a $500 million set of laws to create stricter limits on guns, including smaller magazines, no more armor piercing, and reinstating the assault weapons ban.

But until Congress passes those recommendations, the Prez is signing a set of executive actions that will take place immediately. He says:

"If there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try."

The things POTUS thinks we can do include keeping guns out of unstable and criminal hands by strengthening the background check system and making schools safer by developing emergency plans and hiring more resource officers.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see what else the Prez thinks we can do!

Barack's most important longterm strategy is to fund investigations into the causes and prevention of violence by the CDC, including studies on the effects of violent video games!

Here Is President Obama's Poignant Reaction As He Learns Of Sandy Hook Shootings

Filed under: R.I.P.Barack ObamaSad Sad

Ugh! This breaks our heart into teeny-tiny pieces!

The White House released a bitter-sweet cacophony of new photos into their Flickr stream this week — hidden among them was one soul-crushing image from December 14 of President Barack Obama listening to counterterrorism advisor John Brennan.

Adam Lanza had just gunned down 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School and this haunting portrait of our Commander-in-Chief hearing the news (above) offers insight into why he now calls the "worst day of his Presidency."

Clearly he is simultaneously affected on several levels.

He grieves as the leader of a wounded nation, sure, but also as a father to two children similar in age to those killed at the school.

While the pic is tough to swallow, it serves as a chilling reminder that this heinous crime victimized more people than we may realize.
