Paramedics With Guns Scare People!
I keep seeing statements like "Ban guns now" all over the place today, and it angers me greatly. This is the same exact MORONIC line of thinking that has allowed society to fester. Everyone wants the easy answer and a scapegoat so they can get back to Tweeting and posting on Facebook without delay. How about we focus on the real problem, which is moral decay in society. People have gotten so used to finger pointing and having no accountability, that they resort to blaming inanimate objects. How sad...

Horrible to hear about. I can't imagine what those families are going through due to the actions of a deranged pair.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
Breaks my heart. Poor kids should life carefree. Kids can't defend themselves. What a coward

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Christians have been committing genocide and other atrocities for a good couple thousand years. Others for long before that.
Reliable, fast-loading firearms have only existed for maybe a hundred years?
Anyway, best wishes to yet another batch of unnecessary victims.

"Happiness is a warm Gun."
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
Some of the news coverage has it right. People need to be aware of warning signs in those people that they know.

It could be worse!
In Alaska kids are escorted on school outdoor field trips by 2 men...usually Fathers...who carry guns. The kids walk double file, one man in front, one at the back, to protect the kids from any wild animals that might come upon them. My best friend from HS was a teacher there for years and told me.
It's time to apply this to schools in the lower 48 (well, 55 if you listen to the prez).

Another amoral, semi-sentient bipedal lashing out at others, this time a bunch of grade schoolers. What a man. May he rot. At least he had the honor to take his own life. He had none, outside of that. I wonder if his parents are proud.
