Well, good.

We should politicize it. We should have politicized it hard when elementary school children were gunned down.

But do it the right way. We should tell our politicians to get off their NRA teat-sucking asses, stop listening to gun business lobbyists(Now there's a real redundancy alert), and start listening to what Americans have been telling them to do for years upon years after every mass shooting. And I don't mean tweet out "thoughts and prayers!". I know there's no perfect answer, but the worst answer to this is none.

And BTW Hairy, if the shooter was or is part of a group you don't like, political or religious, I know damn well you'd be politicizing the sh-t out of this in your own way, because you have before. So do yourself a favor and get off of your high horse.

It's a shame when so many believe the answer is removing the tool instead of diagnosing/treating the person using the tool...

When the people that are calling for gun control right after a tragedy like this, will acknowledge the failure of tough gun control measures to reduce gun violence in cities like Chicago, they may begin to have some credibility. Until then, they are nothing but useless idiots parroting left wing talking points.

I don't need the NRA to tell an anti-gun weenie to kiss my ass when it comes to the right to weapons. Butt out, all of you who stick their noses into what is none of your damned business. Go after the ass holes who are trying to carve their niche in history by murdering as many innocents as they can.

You may be posting that is jest, however I contend that if the students were armed, this shooting would not have gone this far.

When I was in High School, almost every truck in the student parking lot (and being in rural community, most kids drove trucks) had a fully equipped gun rack in the rear window. We even had some kids place their handguns in their lockers after checking traps before school. Guess how many school shootings we had. I can tell you it was a number smaller than 1.

The fact is that there are people in this world that are evil and have no respect for anyone and don't value life the way you and I do. These people are hell bent on causing as much pain and suffering as they can. They will do whatever they can to punish those they feel have wronged them in any way and don't care how it affects those around them.

You can claim that without a gun this wouldn't happen. However, need I remind you that in 2001, a group of about 11 men killed almost 3 thousand people armed with nothing more than box cutters.

Or how about that maniac in New York that killed 8 people by running them down with a rented truck?

The thing these people have in common is that they attack soft targets, those that are "protected" by signs declaring it a "gun free" zone. You don't ever hear of a mass shooting at a police station or a gun range. Why not?

I can tell you that had someone attempted to kill people in our school when I was growing up, in a matter of minutes, there would have been 20-30 shooting right back at them. Sure, they may have killed or wounded a couple of people, but they would not have made it very far. Not because LEO's would have been on the scene, but because STUDENTS would have had the option of protecting themselves, something that we have taken from them in our PC culture.

Going after the tool is the simpletons' predictable, knee jerk response; and I would agree that diagnosing/treating the shooter maybe of some value.

Public execution might have a better long term effect. ( partially jesting....ok not really)

However as mentioned in other posts, these behaviors at this frequency, are pretty much unique to recent history.

This country has been awash in guns for practically ever; and we have had churches, schools, and rock concerts for as long as I remember. These things are not variables. The only variable are the actors?

What are we as a society doing to produce these people?

Another school shooting, and the anti-freedom, anti-gun left is calling to disarm people so that only criminals will have guns and victims won't be able to defend themselves, their friends or their families. SOSDD.

I can see the sock puppets gushing with delight at another chance to call for gun control, so that their masters can rule their lives better.
