As you may remember, on December 14, 2012, something horrible happened in Newtown, Connecticut. The 20-year-old Adam Lanze first shot and killed his mother in their home and then headed for the Sandy Hook Elementary School. He shot and killed 26 people20 of them were children between six and seven years old, and the other 6 were staff members.

That horrible incident is still known as the deadliest mass shooting that happened at an elementary or high school in the United States history. Paul Stanley wanted to take a moment and show his support for the families who suffered the loss of their loved ones and said that the pain is as fresh as it was the day it happened.

Here’s what Paul Stanley said in his tweet:

“This is every parent’s nightmare. Absolutely as heartbreaking today as the day it happened. My prayers for all devastated and for the innocent children and those who tried to protect them, all who are victims in this heinous slaughter.”
