Today's horror: Gunman opens fire in Connecticut elementary school. Suspect reportedly killed by police.

UPDATE: Wire report quoting anonymous source now puts death toll at 27, including 18 children. Here's NY Times.

Also: suspected shooter's parent found shot dead.

UPDATE: The death toll has been put at 26, with 20 of them children. Additionally, the gunman shot himself and his mother was found shot to death at her home. The president held a tearful news conference. Gov. Mike Beebe ordered flying state flags at half-staff. The national discussion about regulation of guns resumed, even as the usual gun nuts insisted now (and never) is not the time to talik about guns. If not now, when?
