I’m actually cutting the reporter some slack here. I’m sure he’s in shock. But what a dumb thing to say.
At least 26 people are dead, including 18 children, after a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Friday morning.
The shooting appears to be the second-deadliest school shooting in the nation’s history, exceeded only by the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech.

One of the adult victims is Lanza’s mother who was a teacher at the school, sources told CBS 2. Some of the child victims were her students, sources said.
