    Having watched the Glee episode last night I felt it was done tastefully, revealing the raw emotions of students and teachers alike showing how it could be for them when faced with the unknown. We all feel for CT and hate the horrors that continue, but instead of "slamming" the show, praise the creators for their bravery to keep school violence in the forefront.

    I don't often get to watch Glee. I was very pleased with last night's show for showing what should be done in a school in such an event. After teaching for 38 years and serving on the Crisis Intervention teams in three different schools, I thought this was handled very well. The families in Connecticut have my deepest sympathies. However, I think they should be pleased that the problem is being addressed instead of being ignored.

    Didn't see it so I don't know, BUT, I do agree with the fact that to let these tragedies just go away is NOT the answer!

    If you're offended, don't watch the programming. I see no reason why Fox should have had to "reach out" to Newtown.

    How can anyone think that any form of "gun control" will ever prohibit mass shootings? I highly doubt the legality of a weapon matters to someone who plans to murder innocents.

    All about gun control: If our founding Fathers knew that todays guns fire at a rapid pace empteeing a 30 round magazzine in 3to4 seconds I'am sure that thay would have changed the writing. When the article was written guns were loaded one bullet at the time with a rod, fire, reload again it takes a lot of time to reload a gun. Not like today's guns firing at will without re-loading. I would give a gun to all people if they wnted one like 200 hundred years ago. Thaere would not be mass shooting as Columbine, Newtown etc...
