Open Thread: Connecticut School Shooting

[Content Note: Guns; violence; terrorism.]

The previous thread was starting to get long and unwieldy with updates. Here is a fresh thread for discussion and information sharing. I will make updates from here forward in comments.

Please take care to maintain the guidelines of the safe space. Also: While I realize many articles with important updates will contain photos of victims/witnesses, I'm going to ask that we not post or link individual photos of victims in this thread for the purposes of discussing the photos.

None of the victims/witnesses have consented to have their photos taken. I know no one here would share them with anything but undiluted compassion and empathy, but nonetheless, I don't feel good about linking to the images. I can't imagine a worse thing than strangers gawking at me in my grief.
