    You have a good point there. If nothing else, then security guards should definitely have guns. Maybe have the school supply kids with tazers?

    I didn't say there was an excuse, as in "some reason to excuse his actions entirely."

    I'm just saying that we don't know much of anything just now.

    He might turn out to be just a royal bastard who wanted to off some kids for no reason.

    He might be mentally ill.

    It is also remotely possible that he targeted those boys specifically for something they did to him.

    Now if so, I'm not saying that gets him entirely off the hook.... but if, for example, we were to find out later that he shot those boys because they had gang-raped him in the bathroom last week... dontcha think your attitude about the situation might change just a bit?


    I'm just speculating, I dont know any such thing.... which is my point....

    those are adults-21 years and older-ie older than the average M16 toting Pineapple throwing claymore mine setting Nam Infantry man. Older than my nephew was when he first was issued a M4 automatic carbine and given the authority to call in a 105 howitzer strike on occupied buildings

    If they were adults, I would have no problem with it, but with kids, no way.

    When I was a kid, it was perfectly normal to carry a long gun in your car to high school, because you might be going to a shooting event or hunting with your buddies after school, but nowadays, that's not the case.

    school PE should include weapons safety and handling classes and martial arts. My son is a black belt. I met many of the kids in his class. They always refer to me as "Sir"and My wife as "Ma'am or Mrs____ They treat adults with respect and look you right in the eyes when you talk to them. Self Discipline is a most powerful weapon and tool

    Seriously. I support allowing adults 21+ with carry permits to carry on campus, but teenage minors? Hell no.

    Schools should have airport style gun metal detectors to check for guns or weapons.
