I don't understand why this freaks people out that much. I mean I understand the context and location has some implications - it's not a product of war/poverty/famine or whatever, but still, worse shit happens every day.

shooting kids? don't really think there is much worse than that

Obviously I can't speak for most people here but, as a dad, the first thing that goes through my head when I hear something like this is "what if that was my son's school".

This shit sickens me, times like these I wish we still had public executions. That disturbed fuck wants his 15min, he would get it under the guillotine.

Guess this school didn't have a cop outside, if there was we should've heard about it by now.  Every school I know of, public or private, has a uniformed officer stationed there.  The one next to me has a cop out till 12am.

Really wraps up the week with the guy that shot two people in the mall and the guy that stabbed some 22 kids.

coppers were too busy writing tickets to people that drive 10mph over 75mph at 4am in the morning :)

guys you dont understand that in cases like this where its planned ahead banning all weapons would only hinder this guy by a few days. do you know how easy it is get illigal weapons in the US? People like this who plan ahead are always gonna be able to get their weapons so banning all weapons wont really help. Look at the norway shooting where he just crossed the border with them. or look at loads of the finnish school massacres where they got guns from russia...its so easy to get ahold of guns illigally banning them wont do shit for cases like this.

I think people vastly underestimate the amount of weapons available.  So few people realize the arms trade is literally still being fueled by the surplus of Soviet weapons from two decades ago.  Then take into account the 300+ million firearms in the U.S. alone and it isn't anywhere close to as simple as "gun control."  Ak-47s cost as low as $30-50 in some places, the director of the movie Lord of War bought real AK's (3000 I think) for his movie cause the props were more expensive.  He planned on destroying them, but it was too expensive so he just sold them at a loss.  Same dude also sold the tanks used in the movie to Syria, which if you pay attention to current news is currently using them to kill it's own civilians.

Also the people talking about "gun laws not working" or "mentally ill people getting guns" really don't seem to know the first thing about gun laws anyway.  Only thing "funnier" is people that know jack-shit about guns trying to regulate them.

Your logic is entirely flawed. This could only happen in the U.S. because we're full of gun toting rednecks, depression filled fatties that only eat at McDonalds, and just downright horrible people. EU > US or something

Lets blame video games, music, movies, and guns.

Meanwhile, lets ignore crappy healthcare, terrible education systems, gut social net programs, unemployment, and ignore mental health problems--all of which actually have been causally linked to crimes like these.
