"The Conn elementary school shooting is horrific. Those poor kids & their families. I'm speechless." - Slash
"We extend our condolences to the families of Newtown, CT who lost children and loved ones today. Our hearts are broken." - Ronnie James Dio's Team
"I don't care if you believe in God, Allah, Buddha, or anything for that matter. Pray for those children and their families!" - Mark Tremonti (CREED, ALTER BRIDGE & TREMONTI PROJECT)
"Just now getting latest news ie Connecticut. Unthinkably horrifying. Sad day for many & for the US. Enough already. What will the pro-gun constituency say now- to start arming 4th graders? Responsible Gun Ownership = Fine. Current System = Not Working." - Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT)
"We are devastated to hear about the horrible events in Newtown, Conn. Our thoughts goes to everyone involved and deepest condolences to the victims families." - IN FLAMES

"My hearts and prayers go out to the families of Newtown, CT... another sad day in our history!! Those days are growing faster than I ever imagined possible!" - Billy Graziadei (BIOHAZARD)
"Columbine high school in 1999 was a bunch of deranged and abused students that were taking revenge on their schoolmates for their "apparent abuse." Obviously, they were all deranged and committed a heinous act. But this is above and beyond anything that anyone has ever seen. And the fact that it was a team of shooters is just unfathomable to think about or comprehend. Loss for words right now... All of the victims are in my thoughts." - Jeff Kendrick (DEVILDRIVER)
"For the record, I am for the right to bear arms,but we should at least be able to have an honest discussion about the gun obsession in the US. I apologize for the venting, but it just pisses me that this keeps happening over and over again. It's a tough, complex problem. - Doc Coyle (GOD FORBID)
"SO MANY LOW LIFE SCUMBAG PIECE OF SHITS IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!!" - Marc Rizzo (SOULFLY & CAVALERA CONSPIRACY)
"My heart goes out to all the families and children affected in Connecticut." - Full Metal Jackie
"Really what can be done? Do we need barbed wire and guards at Elementary school. We can't remove all the guns. Tell me what can we do?" - Rikki Rachtman
