Gunman opens fire inside elementary school

Students fleeing an elementary school, after a man opens fire inside. Police say the suspect was armed with several weapons including an AK-47. He barricaded himself inside an office before surrendering to police without hurtinganyone. But there are serious questions about who the gunman is, why he would do this, and whether he also planted explosives nearby. CNN's David Mattingly has the latest from Decatur, Georgia.

    I am so truly disgusted that this unstable criminal was able to acquire weapons enough to kill a school full of children.

    The Georgia elementary school gunman had 500 rounds of ammunition. What does the NRA think? Does this gunman had enough ammunitions? Is 500 rounds enough? Wouldn't it be a better situation with the gunman and Police armed and shooting, the elementary school children would be armed and shooting; their teachers armed and shooting; Oh, the Janotors – yes they too armed and shooting. Would that be enough, Mr. NRA?

    We are creating a violence society with guns and we think this is our 4th Armendement Rights?

    Common Sense America!
