All of us—men and women, young and old—were left in shock, terror, and grief after learning of what ensued last Friday, December 14, at the sleepy American town of Newtown, Connecticut. The news of the killing of twenty innocent children (aged six and seven) and six adults of Sandy Hook Elementary School hit the rounds of every media outlet in circulation and broke hearts all over the world.

The chilling details of the incident are still very fresh on our minds: Twenty-year old Adam Lanza, a kid with a history of mental illness, first shot dead his mother (a teacher at Sandy Hook) at their home. He then drove to Sandy Hook, forced his way inside the elementary school, opened fire to two classrooms full of kids, then committed suicide before the police could take him.

According to www.motherjones.com, over 62 cases of mass shootings have been reported in the United States in the past 30 years, and there are way too many similarities among these murderers. "Cut from the same cloth," is an apt description of them. The tendencies that led them to their evil deed were similar. Their goals were often one and the same. Coming off this statistical fact, FHM cites the numbers that surround some of the most brutal killing sprees in history.
