Today a demolition crew began to tear down Sandy Hook Elementary School, a few months shy of it’s December anniversary of the day Adam Lanza entered the school to gun down students and teachers.

Kicks: LeBron James x Upper Deck Will Auction Off Nike LeBron Xs

LeBron James and Upper Deck have teamed up to further support the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, that took place in Newtown, CT last December. Just a day after the mass shooting, LeBron and the Miami Heat played against the Washington Wizards, where he wore a personalized version of his Nike LeBron Xs to show support to the victims and their families. The White/Navy-Red Nike LeBron Xs were customized by King James himself using a Sharpie with the words “NEWTOWN, CT” written on them in various places. The game was touching to everyone in the American Airlines Arena that night, especially for LeBron and his teammates as they brought their children onto the court for a moment of silence during the pregame introduction. LeBron showed that he was greatly affected by the tragedy then, and almost 3 months later he still feels the need to take action and help. So, with the help of Upper Deck LeBron will be auctioning off his personalized LeBron Xs next month with his autograph on one shoe, and added words “VS. Wizards 12/15/12 Never Forget!!” on the other. All of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to those victims of the Newtown tragedy through the LeBron James Family Foundation. Check out pics of the sneakers after the jump…

Quentin Tarantino Speaks On The Connection Between Movie Violence & Real Violence

Post every single violent tragedy someone poses the question, “Does violence in movies encourage real life violence?” Well director Quentin Tarantino was recently asked this question and spoke his mind about it calling it “annoying” and “disrespectful” to be asked such a question. His latest movie, Django Unchained, has plenty of violence in it and it’s premier was cancelled following the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. Read more on what he said below.

Adam Lanza’s Father Releases A Statement, Claims His Body

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter, Adam Lanza’s body has been claimed by his father and will be prepared for burial. Lanza, who killed 26 people and his own mother on December 14, took his own life after during the massacre. Doctors were holding onto his body for a while to do some DNA testing to see if Adam had a genetic disorder which caused him to commit the horrific act that he did. Adam’s father, Peter, spoke out for the first time since the tragedy saying, “we too are asking why.” Read more below. Julie A.

Adam Lanza’s Brother Speaks For The First Time Since Newtown Shooting

Ryan Lanza, who was originally though to be the shooter in last Friday’s horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, is speaking out for the first time since he’s brother’s senseless murder. Ryan and Adam lost touch after Ryan moved away to pursue a job in New York years ago. Ryan, who also lost his mother on that tragic day, wrote that people shouldn’t be calling his brother names and calling him a monster. He also goes on to write a message about his mother, who has been purposely left out of tribute to the Newtown victims. Ryan however, made little mention of the 26 others who were killed that day. I’ve been waiting for either him or his father to make a statement in regards to the shooting, but I really wasn’t expecting this. I wasn’t expecting Ryan to bash his younger brother, but I figured he would focus more attention on his mother and not Adam Julie A.

NRA Breaks Silence One Week After Newtown Massacre, Says We Need More Guns

One entire week after the horrific, tragic events that happened in Newtown, CT, the NRA has finally broken their silence. I have been waiting for them to release a statement in which they would try to convince us that guns aren’t bad for people to have. Granted, “guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” there’s no way any can justify the need for assault weapons to me. I fully stand being VP Biden and his moves to ban assault weapons. Back to the topic at hand, in true NRA fashion, they stated that we need more guns saying, “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre bashed the media during his speech and went on to say that schools need armed guards. Although I do agree the schools need more security, I’m not sure an armed guard is any solution. What if a madman overpowers the armed guard, grabs his gun, and starts shooting? Find out what else he said below. Julie A

(Video) President Obama To Put VP Biden In Charge Of Gun Control Laws

In light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, President Obama is looking into placing VP Biden in charge of gun control laws and making certain restrictions on obtaining weapons. The President will be making the announcement sometime today before 12 noon. Other problems he’s looking into will include tighter school security and mental health issues. Of course these all relate to the recent accident, and could help with any future situations. It’s sad to say that it took 20 babies to pass in order for this to happen, however it’s a great move. This is getting out of hand. Drop down bottom for more. JaaiR (JR)
