I believe that the shooter had "issues" with the school...either he was mad/jealous of his mom spending time there or he got into it with someone before at the school but regardless, it was a senseless tragedy and I pray for all the families, including the gunmans...I'm sure they are all looking back to see if there were clear signs that they didn't see...
I won't even question why the mom had the weapons in the first place since she was within her rights to own them...BUT why have them at home with someone with mental issues?
I also wonder what was this "mental illness" that he had? Being a loner or withdrawn doesn't mean someone is mentally ill...I hate when people lump that label on someone without facts...some people are just evil and have no soul or compassion...(cue the idiots of Westboro Church who plan to picket funerals of the victims)
Arming school personnel is not the answer...we already ask to much from them with close to no pay...the added mental stress of being responsible for a weapon around their students is the type of "answer" that an idiot would suggest...
My heart truly breaks for these families but children are killed by gun violence on a daily basis...parents have been having this happen to often...I remember this summer the amount of murders in Chicago was beyond appalling...I remember about 30 people being killed one weekend...
Until we are truly tired as a nation of this happening, it will continue...the NRA is powerful but we thought Citizens United was too and they were soundly defeated this Nov...it can be done!!
Sorry for the rant...I don't have kids, but my friends do and I have nephews and nieces...very sad society we live in..
As far as the man in China attacking the kids, I just have to wonder how he got to 22 kids before an adult stepped in? That should have never happened...but knife attacks on kids in China are almost a monthly occurrence...SMH
