    I wonder just how many are copycat crimes. The amount of shootings would probably go down if the media didn't give them so much attention. If they feel they need to report the shooting at least stop giving out the names of the shooter. Give them no infamy.

    raevan has made a very valid point - there are these severely maladjusted punks who think they can somehow gain fame - ergo infamy ...... by yeah - copycatting!

    It is indeed scary tho, the recent rash of shootings ........ I shudder every time, both for the victims and, because of this being such good fodder for antis.

    On a different angle ... in recent weeks my area has seen some 7/11 type armed holdups - in not even one has a clerk or anyone else shot the crap out of a bad guy. I am disappointed - because it seems to suggest that there are not enough folks armed, and so ready to deal with this kind of aggression.

    The bad guys are winning - far too often.

    There has been a lot of Gangbanger activity in the Seattle area. Plus now we have some idiot running around the U.W. (gun free zone) asaulting people and robbing them.

    Yep, those signs always keep the bad guys with guns out. The kid must not have seen the sign: Surely he would have obeyed.
    It happened in a Memphis City School so I doubt that the kid could read the sign. He obviously cannot be held accountable since the school system has failed to teach him to read.

    Hearing about these shootings is really starting to bore me. It's going to happen no matter what we do, whether it be create more gun laws, or allow armed teachers/students. The media gets attention from both sides, and that's what they want the most.
    USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    I am the God fearing, gun toting, flag waving conservative you were warned about!

    I did note that in these recent cases, the names of the perps were not glamorously and repeatedly over reported. In fact the AFP and AP articles on this latest shooting didn't include the kids names. Now, I suspect the media omitted these over privacy concerns for minors. Regardless, the less glory these kids get, the better.

    My wife and I are trying to start our family as soon as I get back from Afghanistan, and I am worried about where our country is going. I grew up around weapons, never once did I think to bring any of my fathers weapons to school to hurt anyone. This upcoming election is going to further limit my ability to protect my family or myself.
