I think the summary for God's involvement in the tragedy at Newtown was written about 200 BC, and widely attributed to the Greek, Epicurus, but likely written by another Greek at about that time. From Wiki:

The "Epicurean paradox" is a version of the problem of evil. It is a trilemma argument (God is omnipotent, God is good, but Evil exists); or more commonly seen as this quote:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?
