I can't do much if any better than Crazycal...just different words meaning the same thing. Feel kind of numb. How to stop these deranged folks? Probably more the realm of psychologists than politicians or pundits.

Off and on I have considered trying for a job as a school bus driver. If I had been the fellow bidding best wishes to the little people getting off the bus into that school I'd feel...well, don't know how to express that. I've never been a parent, but don't know how I'd survive what they're going through right now.

Bless those little souls.

Dumbest thing I have EVER read on the internet!!!!


What kind of stupid sh*t is this to say?!?! Arm KINDERGARDNERS?!?!?!?! Theres 20 dead ones still sitting in their own blood right now 12 miles from my job. Maybe you can tell their parents about how "guns don't kill people"-that should reasure them. Or that the guns were registered-that should make them feel better.

So if you can sleep good tonite by thinking if these 5-6-7 year olds would listen to Ted Nugent-and should have a Glock in their backpack -do so. I can only picture the workers at Danbury hospital having lay 20 kids in the morgue.

Re: WTF is going on?

Our prayers go out...
I see a lot more stupid shiat going on in the next week...you'd be surprised how many college kids "really" think 12-21-12 is the end and want to make a statement.
Ijust moved our son out today for christmas break/semester end...he says there are some dumb and ignorant *********'s his age...I'm glad he realises that.
And 2 weeks ago they locked down his dorm due to "a man with a weapon" I waited for over an hour in the parking lot (in the bus) and didn't have a clue what was going on,just figured last claas before turkey day was running late

I was not referring to the children, I was referring to the teachers having guns.... or at least someone in the school..... The teaching of our children is to prepare them to defend themselves when they get older.....
I am truly sorry for the kids and their families but gun control will only make it worse. The idiots that do this kind of crap will find or steal one should they want one.....

Guns don't kill people ....... people kill people......

Re: WTF is going on?

I don't think the gun control issue is the real issue in this situation. Suicidal/homicidal freaks will find some way to carry out their deranged impulses whether or not they have easy access to guns. Gun control may or may not reduce the number and severity of these incidents, but I think the more relevant issue is how can we identify which people are deranged in this way and neutralize the threat. Having more or less armed people will not stop these things from happening. Even if there were guns available to teachers in the school, a certain number of people would die before anyone could react. And if we were to arm everyone I still don't think it would discourage these types of situations; most perpetrators intend to commit suicide anyway - they don't care who has a gun or not. The perpetrator in the Newton incident was wearing a bullet-proof vest; he knew he would be shot, and that didn't stop him. The more effective strategy in my opinion is to identify homicidal tendencies in people and neutralize them before they get expressed. How to do that I don't know, I'm not a psychologist. But I do believe that is the answer to this phenomenon. Of course gun control advocates and gun proliferation advocates alike will see the situation through their own colored lenses.

Re: WTF is going on?

My city posts a school resource officer full time at each H.S.(special training) and several roving RO with 3 elementary/.jr high schools each. They are our communities eyes and ears to the crackpots we all must live with. This was a result of a HS shooting some years ago. It seems to be working and I hope it keeps working. You may want to consider such a program for your city--the nuts are out there, just saying.
