    ....

    The parents of other victims testifying at the Sub-committee had much different opinions as to the reason for the murders.

    Untill you have PERSONALLY lived througha tradedy like this,,, You really have NO IDEA about Mis Information..

    It is very surprising when Victims family members discussed thier views how quickly they were "labled"

    My Son was very good friends with Rachel..

    He walked past Kleiblod minutes before he started the rampage outside the school... One of hius friends was shot in the stairwell my son just came down to exit the school...

    My son was in the process of finding his friend Isiaha Scholes to with him for lunch.
    They had a Mis- communication,, or My son would have been in the library!! with him...

    As I said ealier,,, many folks just dont know the pain this inflicts on a community. The mean things thats are said .
    The very surprising viewpoints of parents in our school systems... I have had people look me in the eye and say quit whining and get over it!!........ I never will... never forgotten... You will never understand....
    It really opened my eyes..

The training I'd support is training the School Staff to be able to competently engage these wackos so they'll off themselves quicker rather than walking around shooting innocent people for 15 minutes before the cops show up or someone decides to do something. Most all these Active Shooters shoot themselves immediately after running out of ammo, being confronted or as soon as it looks like their plan is folding. Nothing spells Failed Plan like lead coming your way from an Armed Teacher! Texas has the right idea.

    Good post, Dustin. I feel much like you do about this.

    It makes a person reflect on the good things they have in their lives. Mr. Baker, I can understand where you are coming from, I almost lost my oldest daughter 2 days before her 2nd birthday in a car accident. She is now 24, and has given me 2 beuatiful grand babies.

    Same up here in Canada, beaurocrats and politicians have provided less money and many people out running around very mentally ill. Psychiatrists are at fault as well-releasing people before they should and with knowledge they could endanger others! They need to be properly hospitalized and cared for under supervision. That would make a big difference in who gets guns. There also has to be some way to run checks on these people so access to firearms is not allowed. Again we will hear cries to ban firearms. But the better thing to do is provide help to those who misuse before this type of incident occurs again. IMHO

    Very sad day. My heart goes out to all those families and that town. Like I said before unbelievable!!!

    Does anyone ever wonder if the violence presented as common place thru the various media is at all culpable for the mindset of some of these people?

    "The Walking Dead" is one of the top rated shows on TV right now.
    Probably 20 to 50 "zombies" get their brains blown out per show.
    Any of you looked at any of the video games kids are playing today??

    How about some restriction on these vehicles depicting bloody, viscious violence as entertainment?

    Just a thought.
