    Apparently you have missed all the stories of genocide in the last couple decades when you were at Camp Kumbaya

    You know we're talking about guns and children, right?
    Yes when you are placed in charge of children you are given implicet trust too ensure their saftey. What was done to this? I am curious. Was there a protocal dealing with this type of situattion? They have protocals for fires and all sorts of natural distastors. These shootings are not an unknown occrurance so what did they do to mitigate it?

    Just for the masses, where would be the forum where these things can be discussed? I did not see a gun control / gun laws forum.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Ok, so what was the protocal for this type of situtaion. There have been school shootings we do have terrosit threats, so they should have some sort of protacal shouldnt they?

    That's simply not true.

    Everybody does something stupid now and again. Some people are more prone to accidents than others for a variety of reasons but generally speaking they are not idiots.

    Gun Control
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Huh?

    perhaps many of us are thinking about other things right now. Like what a hollow and heartbreaking Christmas this will be for all of these families. How the heartache will continue for untold years. What a sad day this is.

    A key point may be that the shooter was a teacher's kid. I work in a building with all sorts of protocols, but tonight I sent my kid up to my office with my key to the building. Cops know her. Heck, everybody has known her since she was little. She even drives my old car, which is also familiar to security personnel even if she doesn't have my hang-tag. Unless I told them differently, the ordinary rules wouldn't apply to her because she's my kid.
