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.

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

As we all continue to wrap our heads around one of our nation's most horrifically unnecessary tragedies, we are left with the lingering question of "why?"

Why couldn't this be avoided? Why would Adam Lanza feel compelled to commit these horrible crimes against innocent children?

We're still miles away from answering those questions, but we're gaining of a better sense of how worried Adam's deceased mother Nancy Lanza was about her son's well-being.

Nancy reportedly told an unnamed bar acquaintance at a watering hole she frequented that she feared "losing" Adam and that "he was getting worse.

One bar patron revealed details from a conversation he allegedly had with Nancy about a year ago. He said:

Filed under: InspirationSad Sad

WHAT A SMART, BRAVE LITTLE GIRL!!

One very small, very intelligent 6-year-old was the only student in her class to survive Adam Lanza's rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary by "playing dead."

Her paster explains the first grader was "covered in blood" when police found her inside the school's most devastated classroom.

Watch the video (above) to hear this incredible little girl's heroic, tragic story.

We can't even imagine how horrible that must have been for her. NO child deserves to see what she has seen!

Our country MUST take action to see that this never happens again!

Father Of Suspected Sandy Hook Shooter Releases "Heartbroken" Statement As Victims Are Formally Identified.

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

As the country still struggles to understand and make sense of the monstrous, unspeakable Sandy Hook Elementary School school shooting that took the lives of 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut Friday morning, the father and extended family of suspected shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, have broken their silence.

Peter Lanza said in a statement:

"Our family is grieving along with all those who have been affected by this enormous tragedy. No words can truly express how heartbroken we are. We are in a state of disbelief and trying to find whatever answers we can."

Meanwhile, the family of Nancy Lanza, who was also found killed at another location and divorced her husband in 2009, continued:

"The family of Nancy Lanza share the grief of a community and a nation as we struggle to comprehend the tremendous loss that we all share. Our hearts and prayers are with those who share in this loss. On behalf of Nancy’s mother and siblings we reach out to the community of Newtown and express our heartfelt sorrow for the incomprehensible and profound loss of innocence that has affected so many."

Both Peter and Adam's older brother, Ryan - who was originally misidentified as the man responsible - have both been questioned by the FBI but at this point, are not considered suspects.

While authorities have informed the public that their investigators have found "very good evidence … as to how, and more importantly, why, this occurred," no further details have been released.

However, according to Nancy Lanza's neighbor, Dan Holmes, the first victim was an avid gun collector who was not only proud to own and have weapons registered in her name, but in the months leading up to the tragic, pointless events of Friday, often brought her children to several firing ranges to teach them how to shoot.

Sadly, these were the weapons that ultimately took the lives of 26 individuals, all of whom have now been identified.

Take a moment and pray for their souls, as well as their friends, family, and loved ones still struggling to come to grips with the profound, unspeakable tragedy that will hang heavily in all our hearts for a long time to come…AFTER THE JUMP.

Kmart Sends Their Prayers To Connecticut While Shamelessly Plugging Toy Promo

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadTwitter

The people of the world may stop, but capitalism doesn’t.

Whenever a tragedy happens, everything changes, unless you’re Kmart.

The retailer took a break from promoting their 15 must-have toys for the holidays on Friday to tweet their condolences (above) for the people in Newton, CT affected by the shooting earlier today, but still threw in the hashtag #fab15toys.

Because what's a heartfelt tweet without a little shameless promotion?
