Just on my one good foot.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

School shootings!

And the really bad part is that there is no good solution in sight to prevent it from happening again.

So now, the next step in the process is for the shooter to plead "Not Guilty" in court.

If I heard a newscaster correctly, this was the SEVENTEENTH school shooting this year.
:o :( :o :( :o :(
So, that could mean there will be another one in just two or three days.
Fu@k. :evil:

ETA: I got the number wrong. There have been EIGHTEEN school shootings in the US. :shock:

There is a way - if not 100% prevent, but certainly would cut down on the number of incidents. It happens in schools because these cowards know it's just shooting fish in a barrel. Silently arm 3 or 4 teachers, don't say who they are - just put the word out that THIS SCHOOL IS ARMED. I'd say that would be a huge deterrent.

That might work...if it weren't for the fact that many of these troubled young men don't seem to care about their own survival.
If they expect to die, either in a shoot-out with authorities or by their own hand, knowing that a few teachers are armed might not matter to them. They could just add 'shoot-out with that teacher I hate' to their twisted agenda. :(

Then why is it that the majority of these killers choose to shoot themselves the minute armed personnel show up? Their goal is to kill as many people as possible, and what better place than a school. They don't seem to choose initiating a rampage in a police station. It would work in that a lesser number of kids would be killed thereby making the next guy think twice about using a school as a target. But, then, in their homicidal rage they'd probably find another target. I don't think any more gun laws need to be written because anyone who wants a gun will get a gun regardless of a gazillion laws. The minute the anti gun contingent starts yelling about limiting weaponry to the general public, the general public goes out and buys a gun.

Man, imagine what it must be like to hear about these incidents and think "Guns are good and I must defend them. We need more guns."

Yet another one of those shameful legacies my generation has to tear down and rebuild, I guess.

Let me ask you this. If someone approaches you aiming a gun at you, wouldn't you want to be carrying, as well. Sad to say - it wasn't always this way so it's the current generation that is causing the problem. It's now kill or be killed and until the good guys show the bad guys they are not going to get away with their ****, it's not going to change. Illinois has the strongest gun laws in the Union and the most crime. Texas has the most guns and the least crime.
