    Pointless. I can’t even work up the energy to feel angry or shocked anymore.

    Carry on you lot- I expect we’ll see a page full of justifications from the gun lobby crowd by the time I log in again tomorrow. I’m sure somehow this is the evil, ‘gun grabbing ghouls’ fault or something.

    Have at it. I'm not going to be responding further.

    I'm glad neither of you has the energy to argue for the abolition of what should be a basic right in the entire world anymore. Hopefully with people getting bored discussing school shootings in general the attention seekers committing them will find other outlets of expression as well.

    No, it's the fault of the shooter - and no one else...
    God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. You fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds you so much dread are great with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. Judge not the Lord by your feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. William Cowper

    You expect to see a page full of justifications for what, exactly?

    Guns are too commonplace, legislation won't do anything. Firearms probably shouldn't have been legal to begin with but that ship left the dock long ago.

    Math teacher Jim Gard, who taught Cruz last year, told the Miami Herald: 'We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him. There were problems with him last year threatening students and I guess he was asked to leave campus.'

    Another student took to social media claiming Cruz had mental health issues that were 'ignored by all the adults'.

    'He literally had an Instagram where he posted pictures of animals he killed gruesomely and he physically assaulted one of my friends once,' the student added.
    Maybe the "pass more laws" crowd can enforce existing laws?

    I never got the hostility the anti-gun tyrants have to this particular proposal. It's almost as if the shooting are a pretext and not the actual reason for the desired gun grabbing.

    I guess the shooter didn't see the "Guns Prohibited On School Property" sign.

    Nothing will come of this one, like the others, and now it’s the new normal.
    The pro-gun anti-regulation US conservatives are morally responsible for these murders it's that simple.

    It's the fault of the shooter having easy access to guns. We don't have this problem in Australia.

    Your failure to understand the problem sustains it.
