it's overwhelming - so much senseless murder.

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Yet another shooter. Whats the total this year?

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different outcome. Its time the US acknowledged its society is dysfunctional and did something about it.

I propose psychological screening during the development years of childhood to identify and treat those children with personality disorders (seeing as this is when the damage is most likely to be done).


Wow, just the US huh?


Again, why the **** do people bring their own agendas into such a tragic topic?........Sick.

I have to disagree. People AND easy access to deadly weapons are the problem. If a country like Japan with 150 million people can effectively prevent guns from entering society, so can the U.S. It's just a matter of willpower.

In the UK guns are banned.

Instead they have a habit of samurai swording people. The lesson is if someone is determined to kill then they will kill.

A gun is exponentially more deadly. The lesson is a person with a gun will likely kill many more people than with a sword or knife.

0 children dead. Thats the entire point. Guns are simply too deadly. Evil will always exist, but guns make its power exponentially greater.

By the way, the founding fathers likely had no way of knowing how powerful and cheap firearms would get.

I suppose the nation would sleep much more sound if 27 people were just critically injured.

What if the next coward decides to use a bomb?
Or a sword?
Or a GodDamn Candy Cane?

What will everyone argue about then?

See the last line of my previous statement, REGARDLESS OF MANNER OR MEANS.


End.

The whole town is destroyed.  They will not recover from this.  This is like when Columbine happened. Or TWA flight 800.  It is horrible.   Forever Christmas will be ruined in this town.

I read a clip from an article, a teacher locked her first graders into a bathroom while the shots were being fired.. Children saying -" I don't want to die, I want Christmas."..  That vision of them being so scared  is awful...

OK, then lets make machine guns, mortars, nukes, and missiles available at your local Target since  MANNER OR MEANS.don't matter.

The matter and the mean is very, very, very important.

Oh by the way, the vast majority of the Chinese kids had no life threatening injuries.

I have a 6 year old and a 2 year old... It made me want to go and get them from class immediately. It is a unimaginable tragedy.

Well if you think it's too late and impossible to cleanse the country of guns like Japan, then I won't argue much.

If this is true, that would explain it.......You would need to be a complete and utter mental case to point a gun at a 5 year old and keep going

I can't even imagine. My heart goes out to them. I just went to my 6 year old's Christmas Program 3 days ago and all I can think about is how excited him and all of his classmates were about Christmas. I can't even fathom what those poor parents are enduring right now..
