Most Indian reservations do not honor outside CCWs. This tribe does grant CCWs by law but no data as to if they do in reality.
Red Lake, MN (many carry on an Indian Reservation). 16-year-old Jeffrey Weise killed his grandfather and his grandfather's girlfriend. He later drove his grandfather's police vehicle to Red Lake Senior High School, where he shot and killed seven people on the school campus, one teacher and an unarmed security guard, and wounded five others. The shooting ended when Weise committed suicide.

Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, opened fire in a crowded mall in the middle of the holiday shopping season, killing two people and wounding a third before taking his own life
They happen in and around shopping centers and malls, restaurants, and schools. Most are "gun-free" zones. Some are not.

Not sure how many members are in the habit or prayer, bible reading, church going, etc.. but a small passage from Psalms.
"The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace."
It is clear we need to become the nation we were under our Founding Fathers. A God-fearing nation.
Thoughts and Prayers to those affected and our nation. Such a tragedy...

It may have been mentioned but the school shootings in Norway a few years back was enough to cause people to accept a gun ban..............just saying.
When speaking about this incident, Obama said the following:
The implications of that statement are very scary.We are going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics.

To clarify what I'm talking about . . . .
Funny thing, very few will EVER talk about limiting first amendment rights of the press.
Now they're saying the shooter was someone else -- a younger brother? Only 20 years old. I've seen some reports where a .223 rifle was found, but found outside in a car, so perhaps unused? Still a lot to sort out.
Smuck............this isn't Norway and we have something called the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution......maybe if somone was armed, this could have been stopped.....like a cop at the school during school hours.....what the heck we pay taxes.....secure these schools.
Why can't these wack-jobs just blow their own brains out???????

-Blackstone’s Commentaries 145–146, n. 42 (1803) in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008)Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
Been following since it first broke this morning. Somehow it went from one dead to twenty seven?
What a horrific day... Glad to be getting an XD40 for Christmas. I will be carrying everywhere that's anywhere in 2013.
A tragedy beyond any words indeed. The United Nations, this current Administration and the Anti-Gunners are licking their chops on this one.
How many more school tragedies have to occur before the intellectuals figure out that arming school teachers would deter such crimes. Better yet, why don't schools just lock all entrance doors to
their buildings. No one gets in without a camera visual of individual and if their is any question about visitor just call local authorities.
I pray for the victims, their family members and all involved in such a senseless act of violence...
