    I oppose state death penalties generally-murderers doing life who kill again are a clear exception However, while I don't like giving the state the power (as a wise current US district judge said to me-Some people ought to be fried but I don't like having a government that has the power to fry people) to kill criminals as punishment I certainly believe that the families of the innocent should have the right to have vengeance on particularly heinous murderers. Killing innocent school children qualifies in my book

    We need less gun control in schools - it should be legal for every kid to take a gun to school - if we did this, then the random nutcases like this guy would think twice about pulling a gun on someone - especially since school security doesn't do anything other than just call the cops and wait for them to come.

    Re: Another School Shooting

    I'm wondering what those guys did that made this boy decide murder was the only solution.

    Sorry, but most kids that take guns to school and wind up killing other students, are victims of being bullied because parents are oblivious and teachers can't be bothered.

    My pro gun credentials are legendary on this board but that is just PLAIN STUPID

    Armed teachers and other responsible adults though is a good idea

    Rumor has it that the school forgot to put up their "Gun Free Zone" signs that morning, thereby allowing him entry to the school.

    Not enough traditional values in their lives - lots of kids today don't grow up with any traditional values or role models, so this leads them to acting out in violence.

    I propose a mix of Muslim and French Revolution punishment. Gather everyone in the town square but instead of death by gulliotinetone stone them to death (or near death). I guarantee crime rate will drop dramatically really quickly.

    true-which is why we don't want kids with that sort of background packing heat-they might decide to waste a teacher for a bad grade of a girl who laughs at their attempt to hit on her

    Liberty University lets students have firearms on campus, and there's never been a shooting there. It'd be better than leaving all of the kids sitting ducks for some psycho to pick off knowing they're defenseless.
