    I'm sorry, but as this tragedy clearly demonstrates, we can no longer sweep the truth under the rug with falsehoods and distortions such as these. You don't even know my position on gun control, and yet you claim to know it simply because you see the word "liberal" under my screen name. People like you need to stop sweeping the issue of gun control under the rug and let the public have an honest conversation about guns. That is all I am calling for right now, no more.

    I'm serious. It is a tragedy that could have been avoided but people have to have their guns .

    I think you have some unreasonable expectations.
    I think you need to learn how to read because I didn't say anything close to that.

    Losing a child to an accident or medical condition is one thing..... Not that it doesn't hurt...... But those are things that just happen sometimes.

    Losing a child to a ****ing homicidal maniac without the balls to pick harder targets and without the balls to try to live with what he did............. That would destroy me.

    And it's a lot easier to defend yourself with a fire arm a luxury the ten adults today where not afforded.

    Oh really? Let's see what happens when someone points his hand in the shape of a gun and tries to hit someone twenty yards away. Then let's repeat the exercise with a loaded .45.

    If "guns don't kill people," then the results of these two exercises should be exactly the same.

    People kill people. Guns kill people. Stop trying to sweep a basic fact under the rug.

    The only solution to this problem is to make the public immune to violence so we dont feel so bad when these things happen. We need more Violent Movies, Violent Games and TV. Forget this Frankenstein stuff, we need more chainsaw massacres, we need more arms and heads cut off. Violence, Violence, Violence, We need to eat drink and sleep Violence, We need it in every house and around every corner. We need to start when the children are young.....start with their gameboys... I know people say this does effect people, but I think we just need to try harder...more Violence!!!

    Your comment came off as if it should be EXPECTED that we prevent these things all the time. No excuses.

    Thats how I read it.


    In reality you can't do that..... My neighbor could decide to go around the corner to the elementary school right now without any previous warning and start shooting kids and there would be no preventing that.
