      Guns are NOT the issue...the problem lies with the individual using the gun...wake up!

      Yes - more citizens SHOULD be armed for situations like this!

    It isn't just the guns, substitute bombs, knives, ball bats whatever in there. Nuts will just walk up and attack if they want to.

    funny thing, we never had these issues when we had prayer , the pledge of allegiance and teachers that could discipline our students

    lets try bringing some of that back into schools

    It was the former student that fired the gun. The problem is with people not guns.

    Lets start with the parents. Chicago has the most restrictive gun law in the country and more gun crime!
    • Mike | 16 May 2018, 05:30 PM Agree 0
      Chicago has the nation's 8th most restrictive laws, St Louis is the most gun crime per capita. In 2016, St. Louis had the highest rate of non-fatal shootings with 660 per 100,000 people. Chicago, in contrast, had just 89 per 100,000 people. New Orleans had the highest rate of homicides in 2016, with 47 per 100,000 people. Chicago, in contrast had 16 per 100,000.

    Something needs to be done with the people who use guns against kids...

    The mentally ill or criminals will always be able to find some type of weapon that can harm an innocent bystander. I say thank goodness someone had a gun to protect the innocent!

    It's not the guns! What is wrong with these young adult men that keep doing this. That is the correct question.
    And, incidentally, a gun stopped this possible tragedy.

    nothing to do with guns. has to do with lack of respect for other people and themselves. lack of discipline at home and at school fosters this in my opinion. I coached high school baseball and have seen less and less of respect for parents and coaches over the years. they think they are entitled....
  • Larry | 17 May 2018, 01:42 PM Agree 0
    Give the authority back to teachers to discipline kids--evidently the kids are not being taught right and wrong at home so get out of the way all you "do gooders" and let the teachers do what is needed. It is interesting that Asian and some other ethnic backgrounds do fine--don't throw more money at it, just let locals take care of the problems. Parents have not done their job so let the schools take care of it since you parents don't seem to know how.

    Tim, something was "done with the guns", an officer was in the right place at the right time and prevented what could have been another major tragedy. The could have been a law-abiding citizen with a conceal carry license just as easily. Guns aren't the issue, people are and that is a much more complex problem to address than the 'ban guns' agenda which will almost certainly do more harm than good.
