    There should never be armed security guards in an elementary school. Ever. Absolutely ridiculous...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Im out. and for those who think this only applied to old times. Go find out why Cubans and the russians for some time could not overthrow nor fight their government back. When our guns are taken away,thats when our freedom will be in danger
    Right. What are you going to do with any gun (automatic or semi-automatic) against F16s, B52s, Tanks, Blackhawks and drones??? This entire 'my freedom' argument is such a BS.
    It was a good law over 200 years ago but times have changed.

    You know what is unacceptable? That we have to have security in the first place. I didn't have security when I went to school. Maybe a little school person provided security. But a police officer? Yeah, your freedom at work: police officers at school. Let's not blame the shooter or guns.

    A glock, a sig sauer and a Bushmaster. He killed his mom and dad as well as all those kids, his girlfriend is apparently missing. There are no words to adequately describe the horror of this massacre. God only knows what we'll find out in the next few days.

    times change and you prove my post. When i was a child we didnt have these types of incidents in schools. Gun laws were present. Theyve arose the last few years. People are the problem. Not the guns. Parents letting their children play call of duty at the age of 5 are the problem. I wasnt allowed to watch anaconda till i was 10 or 12 and little kids now a doys are talking about tits, ass, and dick like nothing. I know, i volunteered to tutor at an elementary. Security is now needed and you cant change that. Its time for real security

    And who said anything about 100 round assault rifles? The only report of a weapon i have seen said that one of the guns was a .223, but didn't specify if it was a singgle shot or semi-automatic.
    Let's calm down and get all the facts before we try and take everyones multi shot weapons away.

    Oh yeah, and say a prayer for all the kids and their families....especially the one of the 20 yr old guy that did this

    When people stop saying prayers and actually do rational things like completely reform the gun laws in this country, we may actually see less of these horrible incidents and less to have to pray about.

    Only in your mind. This incident also "proves" that no one but police and military should have guns. You're taking a subjective thought and trying to present it as fact. I won't even begin to go into why this is a stupid idea except to point out that your solution is to bring even MORE guns into the place where everyone's kids go to school. Ridiculous...

    He'll have a mental illness. I can guarantee that. Probably paranoid schizophrenia, but also possibly Bipolar disorder, or maybe even both...

    Times have changed? Really?
    Maybe it's time to change the gun laws. I own a gun too. But I don't see the need for owning automatic, semi-automatic or an arsenal of weapons and the unlimited ability to just buy ammunition without check like tomorrow is war. What has also changed over the last 20 years is the access to such weapons and ammunition. It is much easier today to go buy any gun and ammunition without limits.

    Who is going to pay for all these extra police officers? The money must come from somewhere? Government? And where do you position them? In every hallway? Want to fortify our schools like prisons? Make it a police state and start searching every student, every parent and every teacher, every supplier?

    precisely! Times have changed which means we should seriously reexamine a 220 year old constitutional amendment.

    Maybe a little prayer and reflection would stop things like this too. Maybe a realization that we are not the center of the universe, or the only bearers or pain and sadness.

    But hey Hell, let's blame the guns. It's always easier than being personally responsible.

    You don't wanna pray, nobodys making you. You wanna howl at the moon feel free. But for now, things are what they are, and no measure of cynicism or caterwauling changes that this deranged young man devestated a whole community and shocked a nation....and for what? Do you know? I sure dont. Lets see what his motives were, because we damn sure know the results
