Stop this bs about gun control and meet reality.
No guns they make bombs carry knives.

Hire retired cops as armed school marshals.
Enough there is no money.
We send trillions around the world.

President Trump federalize school security states and local government incapable of protecting out kids.
Mandate hire retire armed cops
To secure
Out schools.

Aren't AR-15 a .22 semi-auto? It's basically kind of an upgraded BB gun. I've shot some guns at an indoor range and the AK47 was brutal. I couldn't think about aiming it at people as it was strictly for sport which is why I've picked circle targets but then I was thinking some people must hate people to aim it at them and shoot. It doesn't matter if we see dangerous things as safe, it's the other people who have too many problems to care about living on Earth anymore. Custom solutions for everyone would work but using a sportsbike is more interesting than shooting guns imo. Also, at outdoor ranges it was nice as being on a golf driving range. It's peaceful and recreational just as gun stores. Was also thinking how stupid it is for people to think guns are dangerous. It's the same as banning knives and bats from outdoor sporting good stores because they were used on people.

Aren't AR-15 a .22 semi-auto? It's basically kind of an upgraded BB gun. Except a .223 albeit is the same diameter is 4 times the length and weight and the shell is probably 10 times the length of a .22. So yea it's like a .22 on steroids

Says he used a shotgun, so why the AR discussion?

We should just get used to the mass shootings. It all happened before and it will happen again. Gun control cannot get any tighter than it already is. So I don't support gun control. But my prayers to the families of the victims.

Why is it 25 to 30 years ago guns were a lot easier to get, and yet, shootings like this were very rare if not unheard of? What has changed? Gun laws are tighter now, so what else has changed?

@sickandtired

In my opinion, social media has driven this, when kids used to get bullied they could usually get away from it when they were not at school, nowadays kids are bombarded 24/7 with bullying and it’s so much easier to do from a phone or computer. Social Media will be the downfall of society as we know it, again my opinion.

& the shooters father is a real piece of work. "Dimitrios Pagourtzis" dad is a far right Fox News/NRA & white supremacist group called Golden Dawn fan, and their logo is similar to the logo of the neo nazi group Atomwaffen who have carried out other terror attacks in Texas. All weapons in possession of the shooter were legally owned by the Father.

@ShelbyCole
His father is a part of Golden Dawn?! They make the American alt-right look like hippies. They are as close to actual Nazis as you could get.

And metal detectors are in the wrong schools. Time for some racial profiling if you ask me. There is no one more irrationally violent than a lonely bitter white guy.

Greek Nazi’s....WTF?

@Thinblueline
I find it weird that you're a cop and have never heard of Golden Dawn. They're a pretty well established political party and terrorist group.

@Hi_estComnDenomn isn't it awfully convenient that "certain" Law enforcement members claim " I don't know anything about that".

Its almost as if they are incentivized to "protect" a "certain" grp.

I hadn't heard of them before seeing it here either but after going and checking them out I just have one word. DAAAAAMN.

I hope that if Law enforcement really isn't aware of them that you start spreading the info. This is crazy, but to be honest it backs up what I've been saying. The parents are not parenting. And the ones like this kid's father should've been starlized because he didn't raise a child, he trained a terrorist.

And social Media could be the best friggin tool we have but 9/10 of people are more interested in gaining fame or infamy than sourcing and shar8ng info to help each other to raise and keep an eye on out children. It's kind of pathetic huh? Never before have we had the ability to be so connected yet it's driven us further apart.

Shelby where do you come up with his dad is part of Golden Dawn? Are you racially profiling him?
H_C Dumbshit so you are encouraging racial profiling now?

Strange that the only reference tying the shooter's father to a Greek Nazi group come from ShelbyCole. I can't find any reference to that anywhere on the web and just because he "liked" Fox News and an NRA spokesperson, Dana Loesch, doesn't make him a Greek Nazi. See: https://heavy.com/news/2018/05/dimitrios-pagourtzis-family-parents-greek/. More fake news.
