    Unfortunate for the victims.

    However this is a country that stubbornly refuses to address through legislative or culture change its attitude to guns. It's just going to do happen again.

    No! Hopefully not!
    I'm sad because I can't imagine what the families are going through - sending their children to school and the next minute arranging a funeral!
    The gun laws in America are dreadful.

    Suspect apprehended, hope victims don't suffer life changing injuries or die young, just because of some young, idiotic young boy.

    Right wing nuts (Donald Trump and co) are now calling for young children to have the right to bear arms and for the gun free zones on schools to be lifted.
    "To protect them from school shootings".

    What?

    Will the second amendment ever make sense?

    Bullying - or mental health issues such as depression are the leading causes, a main example of Columbine in 1999 because of bullying and depression, the worst mass school shooting in American history. Its kind of weird because we don't get many kids, who get bullied or have mental health problems, here, take a knife or other weapon to school and kill or injure multiple people. Maybe, its just an American obsession with guns and the way children may be brought up around them, thinking it would be cool and are inspired by other shootings.

    Thats the second amendment. I remember the left, when they said, 'Catalonia can't leave Spain because its against their constitution' just as banning guns would be against Americas constitution.. thats why there has been efforts to bring in gun control and different states have different gun Laws, but for the most part you can't ban guns because of the constitution.
