    Sounds like something you would see on that TV show the following. No confirmed deaths as of yet and lets hope it stays that way.
    I hope so,too.

    I also hope that,if anything, the discussion of it on this thread can focus on the real issue -- that of the consequences when we do not deal properly with mental illness-- rather than being seized upon as an opportunity for zealots to push their narrow political agenda.

    it's inevitable, might as well get it started from the git go.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Very sad and unfortunate event for the victims and their terrified parents and loved ones.

    I waited just as long as the anti-gun advocates did.

America's lack of mental health structure simply treating people with pharmaceuticals and sending them home is not working. Mentally stable children from supportive homes do not go around stabbing or shooting others. The implement used is irrelevant - if it wasn't a gun it's a knife (as in this case) and if a knife wasn't available it would be something else like a hammer or a pipe or even a pen or sharp stick like a pencil. Time to shift the discussion away from inanimate objects and get to the source of the problem.

    What about the media? I was half joking in my OP about the TV Show the Following but in reality its a very violent show in which there are lots of mass stabbings. Do you think Western governments should regulate media more or is it the responsibility of the parents to make sure their kids are not watching these type of shows.

    No, you were not, and now you are simply being dishonest about it.

    You were only indulging in a cynical display of political opportunism aimed at pushing an extreme agenda.
