    It's unfortunate. This is why you don't do stupid things. You get hurt.

    Sad they shot the child dead, but it may have been the only way to assure the safety of others. Aunt Spiker said what I feel in post #5

    Furthermore, your point is ridiculous. Kids at that age have enough choice in their brains to make those decisions. Go ahead and criticize gun culture, and excuse the actions of a disturbed young man.

    12, 12, 14, isn't exactly a child. Someone of that age is old enough to understand what the likely consequences are of getting into confrontation with armed police officers, while brandishing a deadly weapon. It's tragic, but there is no one to blame but the idiot who has at least done a great service to Mankind by having himself removed from the gene pool before he had a chance to procreate.

    My wife, by the way, has owned a gun since she was eight years old. At that age, she knew better than to get herself into this sort of situation.

    Actually the poster was correct. The lenient nature of the gun laws in Texas is absurd. And that isn't preconceived.

    Again, preconceived notion based on ignorance. Texas currently ranks 32nd for the most permissive gun laws in the Union.

    Re: Police kill armed eighth-grader in Texas school

    I was just over on FaceBook watching kids from that middle school talking to each other. The gist of what they are saying is the deceased student was involved in an altercation with another student recently and a teacher shoved the deceased student out in a hallway / barricaded the door when he flashed a weapon in his homeroom class and alerted the school office via cellphone.

    I know what you mean.

    Tighter gun laws did wonders for lowering the murder rate in D.C. and Chicago.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
