    Meanwhile, Wikipedia is steadily growing a very long page titled “School shootings in the United States”.

    Schools are soft targets: the students are sitting ducks, and armed response is minutes away. Armed personnel -- security guards and school staff -- would mitigate much of this.

    It seems the shooter had two Instagram accounts: one which showed an interest in Islamic terrorism, and another which had a picture of him wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat. Guess which account Instagram deleted?

    Guns have been easily available in this country for 300 years. Only recently has there been an uptick in school shootings.
    For the sarcastically impaired the following is said in jest

    The problem is obviously easy access to guns.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    Yet another school shooting. Apparently one of 8 so far in 2018 that resulted in injury or death. It’s only February - that is mad.

    Nothing will come of this one, like the others, and now it’s the new normal.

    I do not have the heart to engage in yet another pointless discussion on the need for common-sense gun control, such as has been shown in countless other countries to significantly reduce gun violence. Until the masses refuse to be held hostage by a powerful lobby, a powerful industry, and the demands of the few, we will continue to see our children die.

    Have at it. I'm not going to be responding further.
    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    -Martin Luther King
