    Sure, I understand the visceral, first-gut-reaction thing.... I do it too sometimes.... I'm just saying that we don't know much of anything at this point.
    Murder is never the answer to any circumstance. If he is mentally ill then it should have been noticed by high school. If he was bullied then something should have taken place to stop this.

    It's not like a virus. It's a side effect of our current culture. We have changed dramatically the way we raise children over the past 50 years. We are seeing the results of cultural changes and attitudes toward the basic unit of society, which was once the importance of family and community.

    It couldn't have been too hard since this kid did it and several others have recently. Banks aren't successfully robbed often. Why? Because it's hard to do it.

    Banks are robbed quite often and very easily. It is getting away clean that is a little tricky, but lots of people try it anyway.

    Banks that don't get robbed much are the ones with the armed guard.

    Don't need a gun to kill at school. Some kids tried to off their teacher with rat poison.

    ...Which is proving my point. Those banks aren't robbed because it isn't easy.

    Re: Another School Shooting

    I may be called a backwoods hick for this, but in my hometown every pick-up in the school parking lot had at least one gun. Almost always a hunting rifle or shot gun and never one incident. Yes, there were bullies and the bullied. But it was handled with fists or teachers. But, then again we were just a bunch of bubbas clinging to our bibles and guns...what did we know?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
