Lets face it and lets be brutally honest about this - gun folks want to inoculate themselves against such a discussion. And we already see evidence of that.

    look at post 7

    Sad. I have some predictions.

    Student will have showed warning signs. People missed them. And the lesson will be missed. That we need to deal with instability. We need to learn about social media. We need to learn the causes.
    So lets look at a whole bunch of factors - instability - social media - warning signs....... but whisper whisper whisper.....

    but please - lets not mention guns at this time.

    One factor, the shooter.

    I disagree. I agree with Stonewall in his post 7 that we need to look at those factors. I just add the other obvious one. To that I would also add bullying, the school rules, and school security.

    And I never said a word about gun control or made any suggestions about it here.

    And right wing version of their own form of political correctness will not prevent that and should not prevent that.

    I also want to add that I was on record a long time ago agreeing with the NRA that there should be at least one armed security person in all schools in the land. Although in this case it seems to early to say if that would have helped or not.

    I haven't gotten new reports. I wonder what caused this kid to lose it?
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Kids get into fights across the land all the time Crue. They normally DO NOT end up like this.

    Initial reports seem to indicate that it involved a dispute over a girl. Some of the witness interviews indicate that the shooter was reasonably popular and the incident was unexpected.

    Yeah, except sometimes when a kid loses a fight and his pride is damaged even more he will take things to the next level.
