The Florida shooter should never have been able to purchase an AR-15 with his mental health history and record.

But more than anything, incidents like this come about due to the decline of morals in our society. Time to bring the bible back into school and for parents to start disciplining their kids.

What a crock holding someone else liable for your actions.


Maybe, but might make a person think twice about whether their friend or family member should have a semi-auto rifle. Seems like it would have done alot of good in this situation.

That is a very blue thought process, with that line of thinking we need to outlaw teenagers driving automobiles.
Thousands are killed yearly due to their faulty driving abilities and habits.
Yet that doesn’t matter, dead is dead.

Open the mental hospitals back up and quit trying to treat crazy with drugs in the home.

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?

Not everyone believes the gun is the problem.

Now if we open all the mental hospitals back up and add the new ones that are needed, over half the population will either be in a mental institution or a prison! Interesting thought!

We want freedom - freedom to go where we want, think what we want, do what we want, and own firearms, etc.

We want privacy. We want freedom from surveillance. Freedom form an over-stepping law enforcement institution.

If we want these liberties, then we have to accept that there are people in our world who will use those freedoms to commit crimes against humanity.

In a free society, these acts are inevitable. The POTUS will feed us rhetoric. People will complain.

Security is the only response. Seems like most already have accepted that because that is exactly what schools are doing - increasing security and instituting armed security guards. I have been watching local coverage. Many schools in Kentucky are now employing guard gates and armed security personnel.

As Brute said, this does not prevent these acts from occurring off school grounds. We have to live with that.

I ran across this article and found it interesting. I suspect some people are molded and raised by parents that learned from their parents. Some will say my Dad would knock the crap out of me when I was growing up and I turned out okay. Some will remember their Dad as being compassionate and understanding and could discipline a young child without the crap being knocked out of them. Also some where I read that the shooter was adopted. I have had several friends that adopted these friends were good people and the children they adopted were mean and hard to raise. Some of the friends were actually afraid of the adopted children after the children became grown. My conclusion is that no one teaches anyone how to raise a good child some children are molded at the start and do not change. I also wonder about some of the teachers that taught when I was growing up. Were they good teachers are were they blessed with a class of smart children to start with.

I know of two adopted cases, the adopted children were renegades from day one. It is like docility, it comes in the genes.

So you’re saying it’s nature versus nurture.
Now explain why our prisons are full of people that had good parents?
