    He's upset that his daughter got killed, totally understandable. Doesn't mean he's correct. We've got to be able to put our emotions aside and use our heads even at the toughest times. That's when clear thinking is most important, when it's hardest to do.

    So protect your kids. Clearly the cops won't. Signs and words are not protection.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. People kill. Bad people. Not guns.

    I feel bad for your daughter, but the gun that was used is not the problem, you are attacking the wrong thing, you not going to change anything going after guns and ammunition,your going to be a pawn for the left on gun control, when you should make a fight for mental heath and getting these trouble kids access to help and spotting the signs that are present before this kid, went to school and murdered his classmates, or the coward police officer that was to close to retirement, that failed to enter the school, and confront the killer, and possibly saving lives, instead you want to go after the gun, ?

    Sad but 1 good guy with a firearm could have ended it.

    Double the amount of people were just killed in Japan by a guy lighting a building on fire last week and nobody wants to talk about that.

    You get a pass to vent but there was systemic failure from the school level and every level up to and including the FBI. The "gun lobby" want to preserve your 2nd amendment rights too. Guns haven't changed much. People have.

    Yep, and when you decide to put your big boy britches on and get to the root of the problem thing might change. And by the way it isn’t firearms.

    How is making more harsh gun laws going to help? Last time I checked murder was illegal and there are harsh consequences for it yet murders happen everyday

    We are allowed to carry concealed at my university. If a crazed individual tries something stupid, they will be shot by both the students and the staff combined. The best offense is an even better defense.
