I'll bet the weapon(s) used for the shooting was obtained illegally.

Of course, there will be a renewed clamor for gun control, but it's pointless because existing gun control measures should have prevented this shooting.

More stringent gun control measures are not going to stop the senseless murder of students in public schools.

Armed/trained security guards on campuses might be able to minimize casualties by a quick response.

Turns out I was right.  (as usual)

The weapons used in the shooting were obtained illegally. Both the shotgun and the .38 revolver were stolen.

Which is more evidence that these mass-shooters don't observe gun-control measures.  They don't care about a bump-stock ban or magazines limited to 10 rounds.  They don't care about gun-free zones or background checks.

When will the gunophobes finally wake up and face reality?

The shooter is a minor (17 years old) - he cannot face the death penalty.  He would be eligible for parole in 40 years, assuming he is given a life sentence.  A life-without-parole sentence cannot be given to minors in Texas.

Don't ever stop being a libertarian chief. You're just too much fun!

Gun control laws will make it so that criminals have guns and innocent civilians don't.  Why give criminals an advantage?

I'm all for no gun control at all in your country! This one included bombs too and that's progress for stupid blood thirsty gungoons. Let's go full automatic and stop taking away Americans' rights to kill school  children more efficiently and quicker. Tough love Ruby. You have to hit rock bottom before you will start learning to be a decent person.

Don, you talk as if being murdered in a school mass shooting is a common occurrence here in the States, it's not.  A child is still way more likely to die in a car accident, a falling, or from drugs.  Children today have a much better chance of making it to adulthood than anytime in history.  And stop comparing the U.S. to countries with small populations.  Everyone knows that bigger populations means more violence.

Another lie Ruby. countries with bigger populations don't have more violence. Even not taking into consideration per capita figures, the US is much more violent than China.

And per capita, the US is the runaway winner for gun violence.

And you just keep telling your murican evil lies don't you Rubes!

Why not go and pull the wings off of some houseflies to calm yourself?

Yes, Don, population density has a huge effect on violent crime.  And don't compare a tightly controlled country like China to the U.S.  The Chinese are good little Statists, and if they demand freedom, they get mowed over by tanks.  I'd rather live in a free society.
