I don't understand why people who used to be students are now going back and killing underclassmen.

Only those that suck on car exhaust would not believe that easy access to guns is not a problem.

Actually it looks like it was a run of the mill shotgun. Nothing to fancy this time.

Oh but it's a mental health issue, first and foremost. I actually don't disagree. The mental health issue isn't just in the shooter, but in every pro-gun advocate in the United States that is addicted to their firearms...

So, what you are saying is that 50% of Americans have some varying degree of mental health issue. I see.

What do we do with them?

Oh yeah, guns don't kill people. They are designed to kill, but its people who kill people....it will never stop.

The point was this is not a high powered weapon. Relatively easy to acquire. We'll see how this weapon was acquired.
