    why take the guns from good guys when they bad guys will always find a way. beef up school security! arm teachers who want to be armed and want to be trained. We live in a fallen world.

    I broke down when the mom walked on strange. As soon as dad took her jacket off I just couldn’t hold it in any longer. Just heartbreaking and I can’t imagine losing a child.

    The more I listen to these parents of school shooting victims, the more I side with the NRA...They only wanna tackle guns not resolve the problems that lead to school shooters....mental health treatment, bullying/harassment by peers and teachers/administrators, and unhealthy home lives/circumstances.

    If you can't control drugs, you can't control guns. Kids can get drugs and kids will be able to get guns. You need to reform cultures mentality and heart, Hollywood movies promote violence, media glorifies the shooter with attention, video games, comic books it all celebrates wrath and anger batman, wolverine hulk, punisher, dead pool, matrix grand theft auto. normal people handle this but nuts don't. 300 million people in the usa there is bound to be 1000 nuts wanting to kill everyone once they snap but even then it only takes 1 motivated loser to harm many people. Guns, home made bombs, gasoline, truck running over people when they get out of school but I guess people need to feel like they are making progress by mopping dirt floors.

      aggiesoldier when you agree to open your mind and not just call anyone that doesn’t agree with you “liberal”, then we can talk. You can’t argue if you don’t have an open mind. Other than that, YOU’RE acting like a hurt snowflake. You sound childish.

    Reading the comments on here by the gun nuts is sickening. Check the countries who have more stringent gun laws! They have LESS GUN RELATED INCIDENCES!!!! If guns are harder to obtain only the REAL FUCKED UP people will be willing to try to get them and guess what? The chances of you ever meeting one of these truly fucked up people who have managed to obtain a black market weapon will be literally minuscule. Unlike today where you can legit see random fat guys on walmart electric scooters with a damn gun strapped to their fat thigh. Or chicks with guns on hip clinging to their beau...again in WALMART. (Yes I have seen BOTH just over the border in New Hampshire.) I'd rather have such stringent gun laws that I have a .01% chance of running across some fucked up evil guy with a gun who decides to take a shot at me rather than the nearly 50% chance I have of one of these weirdos at walmart suddenly getting pissed because walmart is out of something they need or someone glances at them the wrong way so they pull their gun and start blasting.

    Also the whole "good guy with gun versus bad guy with gun" scenario everyone is so into? Doesn't work. Why? Because cops and soldiers are TRAINED to run TOWARDS bullets. Even then sometimes their self preservation wins out and they hide. Some fat pasty white dude with a gun is going to probably FORGET he has the mother fucking gun and run the same way that everyone else is fleeing.

      @queen bee because its almost never on the news, so people don't know. Make it as public on the news like this and it will probably have the same effect (at least in the most country's in Europe)

    Swear to god, if any of these shootings personally effected members of Congress, if they lost someone in their family, they would work double time to stop this from being so normal. It’s been 20 years since this became huge in the media, and it’s been over fifty since the Texas tower shooting. This should make anybody that is a parent enraged.

    • Trinity Livingston
      Trinity Livingston 7 months ago

      The solution is very hard because there's truly no way to prevent the wrong person from getting a hold of a gun. People can say that we should ban guns from the mentally ill, but first you have to clarify what you mean by the mentally ill. You also have to factor in that many people will hide the fact that they have a mental illness and will lie about having thoughts of hurting themselves and others just to protect their gun rights. They'd rather leave their mental health untreated and let it fester in order to not risk losing their guns. That's how badly certain people value their guns.

    • Kurt Vonfricken
      Kurt Vonfricken 8 months ago

      Everyone should be enraged. But no one knows the solution. Everyone is against violence. Everyone is against shootings. The solution is not as simple as many of the talking heads and the high school children that became famous think it is.

    We always say “this will never happen here,” or “it could never happen here,” but when it happens so close to your home, the reality hits you that it could become a reality for anyone, at any school. It fucking sucks!
