    I Think It's Sad That Kids...

    I think it's sad that kids aren't made to feel welcome in a school environment.  Most of the shooters have been kids who are made fun of and don't have anywhere to turn, so they lash out.  Perhaps if teachers take a more active role in making sure these students are...

    Just Ban The Stupid Guns And Be Done With It!

    -That's all there is to it. Look at Germany. They have the strictest gun laws and it works for them. Look at Serbia. Yes, Serbia. How low do you have to stoop to have to look at Serbia and see that the gun law there works better than the US approach?! Just get rid of the guns...

    Give a Boy a Gun

    This Must Not Become The "new Normal".

    I have a daughter in 5th grade. We had a shooting in the high school up the street the first day of school this year, then the Aurora shootings, now Newtown. When I picked her up from daycare that Friday, I told her about the Newtown shooting, as I knew she hadn't heard about it...

    Sad Day On Dec. 14th 2012

    My Junior Year

    There was a boy that, as the bell rang, stood up and shot himself in the head. A friend of mine that was in the class placed her hands over his wounds but he died soon after. It was hard and sad for everyone. Mostly because no one knew how much pain he was really in that lead up...

    Its All So Sad On So Many Levels

    Most of the perpetrators, if not all, were abused in some way as children, which does not excuse their actions, but makes it all the more tragic. Perhaps the most tragic thing is that the perpetrator almost always dies by his own hand before it is over, leaving the families to...

    Despite Their Educational Value

    I agree. I hate to see shootings take place at schools.  I think it would be so much better if they held them at the Car Wash, cleaning up would be much easier.

    It's Sad Not Only Because ...

    It's sad not only because of the people who get hurt, but because of all the things that must have happened to lead up to it. So many shooters were bullied or victimized in some way. A person should never become a shooter, and they shouldn't take out their pain on anyone else. I...

    It Happened In My City

    when I lived back in germany, a shooting happened in my city. Thank god it wasn't my school. A guy shot himself and his teacher in front of the class. Then the whole school got evacuated, but nobody else got hurt. It was in the news papers for weeks and it was even on TV.
