Newton school massacre: By Lim Kay Ray

The gunman was a man, named in media reports as Adam Lanza. HE killed his mother then drove to the school and killed six adults, all women, with a rifle before taking his own life. Eight boys and twelve girls were also killed - all but four were aged below six. When the teachers heard the gunfire, they immediately locked the doors and ushered the children into closets in order to protect them.
I think the gunman must be unfit psychologically to kill his own mother and innocent women and children. These young children, some even aged below six, were innocent yet their lives were taken by this man. I think the school should take more security measures like planting a security check on any strangers or persons who are trying to enter the school to ensure the safety of the children entrusted to them by their parents. It was wise of the teachers to keep the children in the closets so the chance of them dying is reduced but it may be dangerous as the oxygen in the closet is limited.
