Damn it. God damn it.

Stop the culture of violence that pervades our society! Stop the bullying in our public schools. Stop marketing grossly violent video games to children. Start providing adequate student counseling. Start providing adequate psychological services to those in need. We need early detection of individuals with violent ideologies. There are other countries that manage to do all these things. And If Apple thinks it need the protection of a security guard in every store, then why not a ‘good guy with a gun’ in every school? Are our children’s lives less valuable than our devices?

Damn it.

There isn’t a state with more gun control laws in this country than CA… When will people realize that regardless of laws you make or have violence in this country will continue to happen??? Gun control means using both hands folks.

randburg100 – You mean the UK where they have the highest rate of violent crime in the EU? Even higher than the US. Is that the UK you are talking about?

Another commentator said that he thought CA had a ban on assualt weapons. Shows you how idiotic he and his brethren are. In the military we used to practice with a 45 cal pistol and pumpkins. It didnt just make a 1/2 inch hole – it litterally exploded the pumpkin

As I’ve said before the NRA and their pals – many of them are so far gone off the rails that they would justify the killing by guns of their own family as ok per the second amendment.

smeagol, the UK is not in the EU.

And crime rate numbers can be twisted to make things look better then they are.

What branch of the military were you in? You do know that a Pumpkin is not human right. It has no bones, no “meat” to it, and it is hollow. If you want to see what a gun does to flesh, shoot a piece of meat, not a pumpkin…

@Jameson4Lunch – CA does have an assault weapon and large capacity magazine ban. Perhaps that’s why only two people were wounded, not 20+ killed.

Too bad there wasn’t an armed person on school property that could have possibly prevented it, but its a gun free zone so people are sitting ducks and cannot defend themselves from criminals intent on doing harm. They have to wait in fear until people with guns arrive and hope they can get there before someone gets murdered.

“A second student received minor injuries while falling over a table trying the flee the classroom, and a third student was taken to a hospital complaining of hearing loss from the sound of a gun blast, Youngblood said.”

Hmm the headline earlier implied that two people had been shot. I feel sorry for the media, I am sure a heftier body count would have been much better for business. Maybe you can change the headlines and list 600 injured due to the incident and state that 597 suffered from physical stress.

Dude… Not really your place to launch such emotionality charged and unfounded comments.
One of these yankees ought’a tell you to but out…
Of course I’m sure they would welcome a rational non combative outsider opinion, but not what you just typed…

Listen to that Crash866, waiting for facts alone makes him/her look vastly more rational then most commenter you see here.

I am more curious as to why the kid did what he did more then BS gun control politics.
