    Yes, Obama is a good person, and he really cares. He's leading our country to greatness.

    Pres. Obama's words were tender, sincere, deep, honest. Though I haven't voted for him I am grateful for his words at this time.

    The tragedy & senselessness of this is dumbfounding. As a father, as an American my heart breaks. It is hard to be comforted & yet there can be comfort believing that those children are embraced by angels & by God.

    Those needing mental health treatment or counseling...please get it. Lets reduce violence in all it's forms. Lets increase civility, service, respect, respectful dialog, & love for all those around us.

    Lets work together to help, aid, serve, & improve our nation & world.

    May God's Spirit comfort those families who suffer in pain tonight, having lost loved ones in this senseless tragedy. So aweful.

    Stop thinking of your blasted guns. It's irrational, nobody has tried or will be trying to take your guns.

    It's just sick that all people can think about is holding your guns right now. Hold your kids, - somebody might just take them away.

    "expect a new attempt at gun banning by Obama"

    New attempts would require him to have made any attempt in his years as president. So far all he's done on guns is allow you to bring them into national parks.

    Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens is not the answer, Mr. President. Law abiding citizens should have the right to bear arms and protect their families.

    I have not ways agreed with President Obama on his policies, however I have always thought he is a good person and a better father. This just reaffirmed my respect for him.

    expect a new attempt at gun banning by Obama. If the man is anything he is predictable. Never mind the flood of Hollywood gun violence that laces nearly every film produced and never mind the uncontrolled sale of violent video games to teens. It is the lack of respect for human life that is killing innocent people in this country...that didn't happen to this extent before these games were produced or until Hollywood lowered its standards to the gutter. Throw in the evil RAP and HIP HOP music while you are at it !!! A desensitized public is the problem - they are the ones pulling the trigger or making the bombs or pulling the knives. Innocence in America is gone and Satan is alive and well.

    God bless the families of the victims at this terrible time including the mother and father of the shooter.

    Every parent feels the pain. Every teacher feels the loss. Family members will mourn for years. The senselessness of this act is beyond words.
