Jets will wear helmet decals for Sandy Hook Elementary School

sandyhook AP

Both New York teams will wear helmet decals to recognize the fallen at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, which is about 60 miles from New York City.

We had previously noted that the Giants will wear helmet decals with the initials SHES, for Sandy Hook Elementary School, on Sunday. The Jets have also announced that they will wear the decals on Monday night.

All NFL teams will have a moment of silence to remember the victims of Friday’s shooting before the national anthem at this week’s games.

A gunman killed 26 people, 20 of them 6- and 7-year-old children, at Sandy Hook Elementary on Friday.

    Still can’t believe that all those young lives were taken. And for all the gun controll people just remember this. The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

    I can’t imagine what the people in that school district are going through

    No article about the Patriots wearing the black ribbons in honor of SHES? It happened in New England. Thoughts and prayers go out to Newton from VT.

    Jamezz that is such a lame comment. Even without gun control no one should have a gun at an elementary school. And with gun control this idiot probably wouldn’t have had a gun in the first place. Not only that most people for gun control are for the control of semi or full automatics. The fact is without a automatic this guy would not have been able to get off over 100 rounds killing 26.

    No automatic gun was used, and they are illegal. Everyone needs to stop using this tragedy as a political point. Bad people will always find a way to do bad things.

    jdrew…not that I disagree with your sentiments by any means, but just like drugs or prostitutes, if someone wants them, they’ll find them one way or another.

    “The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

    Yeah, because we should only focus on reactive measures instead of proactive means, like better firearms training and better access to mental health professionals as opposed to just bitching about costs, ignoring the problem altogether or claiming the big black bogeyman is going to take away our rifles.

    Fully automatic guns are illegal in the u.s. so either he got it illegally or it was illegally altered. Meaning the gun he had was illegal. In china the same day a man killed 22 kids with a knife? What should we do to prevent that?

    “And for all the gun controll people just remember this. The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” – Yeah…or not allowing a crazy guy to have automatic weapons.

    My heartfelt respect goes out to the Jets, Giants and Patriots. Honoring the Sandy Hook Elementary School on the back of their helmets is an extremely respectful gesture to show their support for a comunity in their area facing horrific tragedy, loss and sorrow. I live in a town about 5 miles from the shooting and am sick to my stomach about what all of the kids and parents are going through…..

    How come in these mass shootings, the scum who commit these heinous acts rarely ever have the guts to not kill themselves and face the families of their victims!!!

    America would be so much safer if only everyone had a gun.

    “And for all the gun controll people just remember this. The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

    You are retarded. We need to prevent the bad guy from having the gun in the first place. It’s called being proactive. It’s a tactic that smart people use to make things work properly.

    It always blows my mind after a gun related tragedy how quickly the gun nut automatons spring into defense mode. This would not have happened with a baseball bat or a rock. It happened with a high powered semi-automatic assault rifle, a gun whose only purpose is to shoot and kill people, a gun which in this case allowed a deranged man to shoot and kill 26 people at a whim. But the gun had nothing to do with it, right? If only those little kids were packing, right? Get a brain, dude.

    “America would be so much safer if only everyone had a gun.”

    Yes. The best way to mitigate a gun fight is to add another gun. You are retarded.
