Construction trucks head into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, the site where 20 young children and six adults were shot to death last December. Now the building is coming down. The town required workers handling the tear down to sign agreements banning them from discussing any aspect of the work. Town officials hope the demolition will be complete by the one-year anniversary of the attack on December 14. The massacre by 20-year-old gunman Adam Lanza, was one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history. The attack led to stricter gun laws in Connecticut and New York. Now there are mixed feelings about the school coming down. (SOUNDBITE) (English)RESIDENT SAYING: "I think it's unnecessary to tear down the building. I think you put up a nice memorial, but to take a perfectly good building and tear it down... But I guess if my child was killed there, I'd have to think twice. Some of my friends, it was a tough day for them. They have kids in the school so I understand both sides of it. But, again, it's just a waste of a building." (SOUNDBITE) (English) REINER PISTER, RESIDENT, SAYING: "Well, I mean it has a lot of emotional... emotion behind it, so I think it's a good thing for the families that attended that school, you know, whether you had kids in that grade or not. It's hard to go back to the same place where such a horrible tragedy occurred. It's understandable I think." The new school is expected to open by December 2016.
