    Nothing was done last time, or the time before, or the time before that; nothing will be done this time.

    Have at it. I'm not going to be responding further.
    Sounds good!!! If progs stop screaming, also crying every single time, maybe there is chance to look at problem with brain, to solve it!

    I know we've discussed this before, but rates of violent crime in Australia were the same before and after your infsmous "buy back" program. The only thing that changed was the weapon of choice. When denied guns, the psychos resorted to knives, automobiles, and even arson.

    All the warning signs were there...

    The FBI Was Warned About A School Shooting Threat From A YouTube User Named Nikolas Cruz In September

    Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. "I'm going to be a professional school shooter," said a user named Nikolas Cruz.

    The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment to the bureau's tips account. He also flagged the comment to YouTube, which removed it from the video.

    Agents with the bureau's Mississippi field office got back to him "immediately," Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25.

    "They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person," Bennight told BuzzFeed News. "I didn't. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them."

    FBI agents contacted Bennight again Wednesday, after a 19-year-old named Nikolas Cruz allegedly opened fire at a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in south Florida, killing at least 17 people.

    In the wake of the deadly shooting, questions have emerged over whether officials and acquaintances had missed warning signs about the alleged shooter, a former student who was expelled from the high school last year for disciplinary reasons.

    Classmates, relatives, and neighbors have described Cruz as a troubled "loner" who often talked about guns and flaunted his obsession with weapons on his social media accounts. And Jim Gard, a math teacher at the school, told the Miami Herald that the teen had previously been identified as a potential threat to other students.

    So, you "step in it", then trail it off? What common-sense gun control would have prevented this shooting?

    Perhaps because those attempting to address the problem are looking in the wrong direction. Guns are not the cause of school shootings; they are mere accessories.

    Not true - endless speculation, conclusion jumping, side taking, arguing, grandstanding, campaign promising......
