    I have no problem wanting to protect children from similiar incidents. Do it the right way however and such sarcasm as I used would not be needed. Stop blaming objects and focus on the underlying problems. The left likes to blame guns every single time that a mass shooting happens. That does not address the underlying problem and will no more protect kids than a knife ban will.

    I'm not sure whether it is more common, or just more widely reported. Perhaps it is a bit of both. It could be that the wide reporting encourages other unstable people do copycat.

    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?

    That was my first thought as well. Had this happened when I was in school, the guy would have been buried under a pile of pissed off students beating the living crap out of him. It's time we started including basic self-defense as part of the required school curriculum. I'm not talking about creating a bunch of "Cobra Kai" types, but rather a basic understanding of how to avoid being victim of a physical assault.

    So much for zero tolerance having an effect.

    Instead of school officials doing dumb things like suspending students for pointing fingers like imaginary guns why dont they find ways of stopping people bringing actual weapons to school?

    I actually am not unfortunately. I'm seeing patterns of people being less and less independent and unfortunately if we keep up the mentality that "someone else will deal with it" then bad actors will further be enabled to do stuff like this. A few years back there was a story of fully grown college students freezing in terror while a male student stabbed a co-ed to death in the cafeteria, none of them knew what to do or took the initiative to stop him and said they were "afraid". I just can't fathom that kind of response but apparently it is real.

    Unfortunately this is the natural extent of the fact that Americans have ZERO concept of what Security is in pretty much ANY Public area or building.

    That seems to be the million dollar question in every one of these. I don't know if it's just mental health, psychotropic drugs, or even if this was a gang issue. I have heard there are areas of Pittsburgh and Philly that the gangs pretty much own so my question is if this was a bullied kid, a kid with severe mental health issues, or if the gangs wanted to use a kid to make a statement with something like this knowing that he had a chance to be released with records sealed after 21.
