    if that were true we wouldn't have gun free zone, or anti gun ninnies calling for more gun control or bragging that their guns are "registered" would we?

    There could be a correlation with the over 40% of births outside of marriage, too. Raising kids alone was never easy, and the irresponsible are likely to do an even poorer job of it than are the divorced and widowed. Has anyone looked into the number of youthful killers who were raised in stable two parent families?
    I often think there is a correlation to this as well.

    Even Lanza, while having 2 seemingly successful parents, also had 2 parents who didn't live together.

    I don't recall the back story to the Columbine killers' families. Were their homes broken do you remember?

    It could have an impact, but I still think this stabber in PA was probably some sort of mentally ill.

    Thanks Vesper. Appreciate it! I'll watch that clip. I always hear the "thoughts of suicide" caveats in television ads, but never recall hearing "thoughts of homicide".

    The worst part about Lanza is that everyone knew something was wrong with him, but nothing was done. No excuse for that.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Re: Mass stabbing at US school.

    The question we should be asking, is if the kid was on antidepressants?
    This seems to be one of the common threads in these types of attacks.
    We should also look at the time line, if this attack was done in 60 seconds, that's one thing,
    but if this went on for several minuets, we should question what kind of sheep we are raising?

    Complete failure on the part of his parents.

    I would be interested in your data concerning any continuation of this being increased or continued.

    Dr's are reporting that most of the stab wounds were to the right flank of the victims abdomens.

    So the attacker apparently knew to go for the Liver, ( or he was left handed ) which is why many of the injuries were classified as life threatening.

    Liver lacerations can cause acute and life threatening blood loss.

    Am I to understand that legal guns, or opposition to illegal ones, and private entities utilizing their rights are to be taken as ANTI-GUN?


    This seems a bit extreme.
