    School shooting this morning . . .

    SPARKS, Nev. (AP) Police say two people are dead and two more are injured in a shooting at Sparks Middle School in northern Nevada Monday morning.Washoe County School District Police didn't immediately offer details of the identities of the dead. Spokeswoman Angela Rambo of Renown Regional Medical Center says two boys are in critical condition.
    Police said the school is "all clear" and the suspect is "down," but offered no further details. The shooting happened on the school's campus, but outside the school building itself, according to police.
    Washoe County School District spokesman Charles Rahn says the middle school and next door Agnes Risley Elementary School have been evacuated to Sparks High School. Rahn said the middle and elementary schools will be closed Monday.

    2 dead? Not that bad. Investigate, punish the offender, done and done.

    Tragic, but no longer surprising.
    Now let the partsenship begin.

    I fully expect to be seeing more of this type of thing in the future. We are living in relatively stressful times these days, and people aren't being taught how to effectively manage stress, or adapt to changes in their lives as well as was once the case.

    I don't live too far from that area, that particular school and surrounding area are now infested with Hispanic gangs so this may be somewhat different from other school shootings that we have seen lately.

    CRAZY cannot be legislated; EVIL cannot be legislated.

    The onus lies with those individuals, school boards, and legislators who enact 'gun free zones'. Those zones become prime targets. It is good the assailant is dead.

    Send up prayers for those children and the S.O.B.s who carry the weight of allowing this tragedy.

    Hopefully the families and those children will find comfort and peace. Amen

    Tragic day. Reporting on these stories will always lead more and more to think to do the same thing, but at the same time, these are the type of things Americans need to know about. Such a tough situation all the way around.

    Can't the pro gun crowd show a little respect and at least let the bodies cool before they turn this into a political issue?

    I cant find anyone turning it into a political issue.
    And the left was dancing on the graves of the Newtown children before the last brass case hit the ground.

    Us Texans ( you know the dumb asses down south) have schools that post signs alerting nut cases there are people in the school building that are armed and trained to shoot. Nuff said.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    NOPE ! ... It's damned tragic and I rarely comment on such in this manner... It is such a very sad situation. Once in awhile I get riled beyond self-containment.
