Looks like the student went into the school with a shotgun, looking for a teacher, and shot at least one person before killing themselves.

Didn't Colorado crack down on shootings last year? After the Aurora shooting?

That part of the world should just be nuked. Think of all the problems that would be solved. Nothing of value over there anyway.

Holy trollbait Batman!

Look who is talking. This is way more common in 'murica than regents executing their uncles in Asia.

I've gotten to the point where I simply don't care if American's are shooting each other anymore, it happens all the time they won't do anything to deal with the problem long term, so why should the rest of the world care.

Legal pot, also schools should start having metal detectors.

Yeah, but the blast zone would be pretty high up and the radiation would go way farther than usual.

This very freaking tragic, no matter how many times it happens

If the students and staff had guns, this would have never happened, I'm telling you!

Yeah, that doesn't do anything. Case in point Red Lake shooting, kind of gets overlooked in school shootings. Shooters don't sneak the guns in, waiting for their chance. They kind of just go in.

Becoming too common to care. Unfortunate for the families.

With the passing of the Ban on Plastic Guns by the Republican House and no word of protest by the NRA, it proved that the Gun control debate has actually nothing to do with Control, but about Making money from gun sales.

If the school had armed patrols, metal detectors and all the teachers, and students were also armed I'm sure this problem would have been dealt with before any innocent person was killed.

Why don't people understand that guns are the solution to gun crime, not the cause of it.

Schools should have armed security for these kind of emergencies

Sad

I wouldn't go that far. People who want to hurt others are going to find a way.

Maybe educate kids that shooting teachers isnt the legitimate answer to the question "so whats the best way for me to resolve this problem...".

Its not about guns vs no guns. Its about educating the stupid people that pick them up to deal with situations that can be resolved with basic social interaction, not weaponry.

I thought more gun control was supposed to work?
