time for every school in the USA to have at least one staff person who is trained and armed.
Og,your mom might surprise you in a true emergency.quite a few moms have done what's normally impossible/improbable when their kids are in danger
This is strictly a guess on my part but I'm going to throw this out there because of all the conjecture on what "caused" this tragedy.
In the coming days and weeks I am guessing we'll find out a number of things that clearly illustrate how preventable this situation could have been.
I think we'll find:
1. The guns were legally purchased by the mother as some sort of placation for her son.
2. The son had long standing psychological issues; probably nothing severe, but enough that there is ample evidence of it.
3. The weapons were easily accessible to him on a regular basis.
4. He has been desensitized to violent acts over the course of his short lifespan.
5. Multiple people saw this coming.
I'm not trying to lay any blame or point any fingers, I'm just posting my thoughts on where things will go and what we'll find out.
Well it said he was 24 so I'm assuming he was legally able to purchase them? Who knows. I wonder if he played videogames alot and what games, I had a college class on media influences on teenagers and children with the focus on music, movies and videogames. I grew up playing the original Grand Theft Auto, Doom, all those shooting games and I turned out a very respectable honest citizen. Some kids just can't handle their issues and are so quick to pick up a gun. All mine are locked up and not reachable to my daughter at ANY time. I don't even think she has seen any of my guns now that I think of it. We'll get to that several years from now when she has more understanding of things. Sorry I'll stop ranting.
Prayers for the families and for the victims lost.
Tonight be thankful to have those you love.
I think every time a politician lies or decieves the public to a destructive end and it gets exposed, we should start calling for restrictions on the 1A. See how the advocates for a more civil and safer society feel when we start restricting their rights because of the actions of a few stupid individuals. I wonder how far that would get before they realized how stupid the same logic is when applied to other rights.
Like, well, that guy over there was growing drugs in his house, so the police don't really need a warrant to search his house because he was a drug dealer...
Sounds kind of rediculous when you think about it.
