In Palestine, Afghanistan and Syria innocent children and teachers were killed in schools because of the wars.
There is no war in the United States but twenty children and six teachers were killed in an elementary school in the United States on Friday. (Please click here for 26 People Died in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Conn., Mass Shooting- Photos, Videos)
A medical examiner, Dr. H. Wayne Carver said at a news conference Saturday the deaths are classified as homicides; saying that he believes “everybody was hit more than once.”
Why must this happened?
Now, the United States of America seems to be facing a very big problem – mass shooting.
It happened everywhere in public places, cinema, malls, schools and lots of other places that should be safe from this kind of disaster.
I am very sad especially because I am also a kid and I know that there is nothing much that kids could do to protect ourselves in such situations.
I wonder why that happens again and again.
Maybe the freedom of owning guns in America, allowed some people to use the guns for killing other people.
But why must they killed other people, the people who they didn’t even know?
And is it the right thing to let people own guns freely?
Owning guns means that they can use them any time and any where; even for mass shootings.
May be the problems started because there is too much freedom and human rights.
May be some people might think that it is their rights to do what ever they want to do with their guns; including mass killing.
Is all this fair for children like me?
I don’t think so.
How about our rights as children, should kids carry guns too to protect ourselves like adults?
I guess America has too much freedom when too much freedom is not always good.
Americans are very proud of their freedom and liberty.
“My country ‘tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty…”
“…From every mountain side,
Let the freedom ring.”
So people are always fighting for their rights and freedom in everything without thinking about other people’s rights.
They may become selfish and had forgotten about good values especially of respecting others.
So, too much freedom is not always good.
And to the Malaysians who support the oppositions parties especially PKR fighting for total freedom, and look at the United States as an ideal example, please think about all these.
If they follow United States of America in fighting for freedom and human rights, this is what that will happen to Malaysia later on.
Total freedom seems to be a nice idea, but is it really good for all of us, our communities and our country?
I am very sad and sorry for all the victims’ families and friends.

On December 14, 2012, there was another mass shooting in the United States of America.
This disaster happened just three days after masked gunman Jacob Roberts opened fire in a busy Oregon mall, killing two before turning the gun on himself.
Twenty children and six adult died in the incident at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Eighteen children died in the school while another two students died later in a hospital.
The shooter was identified as a 20 years old man named Adam Lanza.
He first killed his mother, Nancy Lanza (who was a teacher teaching in the school) at their house before he drove to Sandy Hook Elementary.
He left his house armed with at least two semi automatic handguns, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, and a semi automatic rifle and wearing a bullet proof vest
After the incident happen, all the schools in the state were lock down.
It is the second worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
The worst was the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007 when 32 were killed before the shooter turned the gun on himself.
I wonder why there are too much mass shooting in the United States.
And I wonder why people did this kind of thing because the shooters won’t be gaining anything good from killing other people.
I think the U.S. should have better security for their people especially the children and the government can’t let people buy guns freely any more because this could happen again and again when guns are easily available.
It is sad because there had been lots of mass shootings in U.S. schools before.
I’m so sad and sorry to the victims and their families.

Early on Friday July 20, 2012, there was another mass shooting in the United States.
This time 12 people were killed and 59 people were injured including children in a mass shooting at the ’Batman – The Dark Knight Rises’ premiere at a mall in Aurora, Colorado.
The suspect’s name is James Eagan Holmes who is 24 years old.
He was armed with an assault rifle, a shotgun and a pistol.
Dressed in black with a gas mask, ballistic helmet, vest, throat guard and crotch guard, he told the police that he was Batman’s enemy, the Joker.
REUTERS reported that police said Holmes also booby-trapped his Aurora apartment with what appeared to be sophisticated explosives, creating a potential hazard for law-enforcement and bomb squad officers who swarmed to the scene and authorities evacuated five nearby buildings and created a perimeter of several blocks as they planned to detonate the suspected explosives with a robot.
I am very sad and sorry for the victims, their families and friends.
People especially children should not watch or read violent stories because they might be influenced to commit violent actions.
Even when the story shows the hero fighting against violent enemies like Batman and other superhero, some people are influenced by the nemesis who uses violence to hurt others.
And the problem will be worse in countries where owning guns are legal because people can use the guns to hurt others and also for mass shootings.
It is a disaster when people hurt others just because they feel like doing it.
