    I don't mind that people discuss politics, but it's rather annoying to hear of a tragic event and the first thing out of people's mouth is "Oh, It's all X group's fault!"

    Not only is it disgusting, it's disheartening.

    I think I'll form a reactionary political party. Returning to the days when you could send your children to public school and they were as safe in the classroom as if they were at home.
    Another reason for NOT going to a public school.

    Copy cats are always a problem and you're point about the media is well taken - this will be the talked about issue 24x7 all weekend. It will be interesting to find out the details of what went down - this seems to be a student to teacher violence enactment and not a Columbine type scenario - at least that's what's being portrayed right now.

    I'm surprised this kid could get a gun into the school - many have armed guards/police, have metal detectors, etc... and this occurred very close to Columbine HS.

    When a shooting on campus happens in Los Angeles, it never hits the radar screen with the MSM. It's usualy gang related when it happens and it happens all of the time. I wonder why CNN and the rest of the MSM are always silent ?

    That is the very nature of the debate politics forum. This is not the gosh I hope criminals just decide not commit violent crime any more because violent crime is really, really mean and scary forum. Wait an hour an the criminal moron will likely self destruct. This is how to go out with a bang in the media 101. It is because we advertise gun free zones, pack them full of defenseless targets and then hope that nobody is mentally deranged enough to take that as an opportunity to seek instant fame.

    If it wasn't so sad it would be hilarious. So far on this thread the media and public schools are to blame.

    Why lay off post #2, from twitt, which snarks on gun-free zones..The guy is right about the media tripping over their tongues--and I would add on the eve of Sandy Hook..The perp is dead, one student is serious, time to move on to the greater good .
