    We'll hear about it for a few days as there was no assault weapon used.
    And that doesn't fit the Left's agenda.

    How's that ban working?
    Raising the age?
    Background checks?

    There is nothing, short of frisking each person that enters the building, that can prevent these terrible actions.
    No one can predicted when someone will snap or what with trigger someone to do something like this. Not even mental screenings.
    So yes, this will happen again.

    Updated info, apparently the bombs were fake or duds...

    Every time this happens, I wonder "where next"? I am old and this sort of thing didn't happen when I was in high school. Why is this desire to mass slaughter a way to fame now? You just can't imagine the pain of a parent who sends their child off to school in the morning and their child is dead before the end of the school day. Beyond comprehension.

    This will continue to happen. I blame it on poor parenting. You need to know your children, spend time with them everyday, talk to them, be involved in their lives.

    Perhaps. I lean toward the way things are. Given that most parents work more than one job to survive because the pay sucks there isn't much time for parenting as us older folks remember it. My mother didn't work until I was 10, my father had a job with the railroad that kept us warm and fed. Back then pay and the cost of everything sorta balanced out, now not so much.

    As an aside the Gov of Texas thinks that the cause was too many entrances to the school. I have a heads up for the Gov, nobody was killed by a door.

    If you are a gun owner you should have the same responsibility to secure your weapons as you do your vehicle so that those you havenít authorized or given permission to use canít. When you are not in control of your weapons, they should be secured in a gun safe with a combination lock and trigger locks. If someone steals your car because you left it unlocked with the keys in it, you can be held liable if they kill someone with it...should be the same with unsecured firearms.

    Why don't they make it illegal to have a gun until the person wanting one is of a sensible age? Perhaps 35 years old.

    One man’s point of view and sounds somewhat plausible...

    Has a bit of merit. But it's just more words clumped into an opinion that doesn't solve the instant issue.
