But you got upset when I told you this wasn't a gun issue:
This ISNT ABOUT THE NRA!!! I am not discussing this like it is a gun topic. That is you, dancing away on the graves of the dead.But it inevitably seems to get there jut the same in these discussions. And that is what my comment attempted to expose and another poster willingly supplied the proof.
I really do not know what you are so angry about? The body count was very small and it would take a Sandy Hook type event ever month for at least a year - maybe even two - for the sheer political power of the NRA to be neutralized.
So rest easy.
I am done talking to you though. You obviously are not at interested in a rational discussion about the problems our nations kids seem to have with reacting to emotional stressors. You would rather skip around and shout with glee every time they murder someone. That's on you and shame on you for doing that.
If at any point you want to talk about the real issues let me know.
The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

And what they then did was exactly what I predicted would happen.I can't control what other people do.
Now what is there about that reality that seems to befuddle and confound you?
Were you operating under the delusion that you could take an event involving a gun and murders and lay down some restrictions that a gun cannot be mentioned?I am not discussing this like it is a gun topic.
Promises, promises.I am done talking to you though.
Nope... did not do that.You would rather skip around and shout with glee every time they murder someone. That's on you and shame on you for doing that.
The "real issues" being anything about a murder with a gun in a school like many other murders in schools with guns that then DOES NOT MENTION THE GUN.If at any point you want to talk about the real issues let me know.
Got it loud and clear.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Ironically one of the side effects of heavy dosages of psychotropic medications is a physical movement disorder that is very similar to the movement disorder associated with Huntington's. Tardive Dyskinesia. My sister was misdiagnosed for many years. Finally a shrink at the VA figured it out.
Anyway my sister's life was dependent on those drugs. When they were balanced, she could function fairly normally. When they weren't, she was a mess.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
Wounded girls identified in Marysville-Pilchuck High School shooting | The Today File | Seattle TimesShaylee Chuckulnaskit and Gia Soriano, both 14, were identified Saturday morning as the two girls wounded in Friday’s shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.
Both girls had surgery Friday after being shot in the head, and both remained in critical condition in intensive care on Saturday, according to Dr. Joanne Roberts, chief medical officer for Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. She said both girls had extensive surgery.
“The next three days are going to be crucial,” Roberts said. “These young people are being monitored moment-by-moment. We won’t know a whole lot more for the next two or three days.”
They have a nurse at their bedsides constantly, she said.
Roberts read a brief statement from Soriano’s family. “Our family is in shock,” it said. “We appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this tragedy. Our hearts go out to the other victims and their families. Please allow us our privacy as we deal with this tragedy.”
She said she has spent time with both families. “We’ve seen tears. We’ve seen anger. We’ve seen just grieving,” she said.
Outside the high school Saturday a growing number of bouquets were being added to a memorial against a chain link fence.
“Even though I wasn’t close with any of them, they still deserve respect and their families deserve it,” said Karalyn Demarest, 17, a senior at the school.
She and her mother, Naomi Demarest, brought a bouquet of roses Naomi recently received from her husband, a fisherman who is away. “I think they’re needed more here,” she said.
Gunman at Washington state school targeted his cousins, relative says
Washington school shooting: Gunman targeted his cousins - CNN.com(CNN) -- When a gunman opened fire at students in a school cafeteria in Washington state on Friday, he was not shooting at random targets, his relative said.
Jaylen Fryberg, who witnesses said gunned down students at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, is the cousin of two of the wounded, their grandfather said.
"All three of them are cousins, and they live right close to each other," Don Hatch told CNN affiliate KOMO.
By the time the shooting was over, two people -- the gunman and a female student -- were dead and four were wounded, according to authorities.
The victims were all under age 18, they said.
