My great niece was in the school at the time. She didn't see anything but she did hear the shots. A family member's friend's child was killed
My left leaning relatives are blaming guns and the gun culture. One of the most vocal is a niece who works for Emily's list, the pro abortion fund raising group that raises money for pro abort politicians.
I pointed out the devaluation of human life in modern society thanks in large part to the the belief in killing unborn babies simply because they're inconvenient but of course that kind of thinking just makes me a right wing nut with the brains of a worm or something.
Pointing out that making today's tragedy more illegal with more gun control laws wouldn't have stopped it didn't help either.

(Give me liberty, not debt)
In a society in which social controls have been under deconstruction for about 40 years we are constantly surprised and horrified when disturbed and disorganized people display a complete lack of internal controls. In short libs have pushed ‘let it all hang out’ as the mantra of the nation for decades. If that is the national non-standard than why be surprised when someone displays their own version of ,beyond good and evil,. We can't have it both ways. Expect conduct that relies heavily on internalized controls and a sense of responsibility and have virtually no standards of the tabooed and the forbidden. I say this and I am far more of a skeptic and secularist than is the norm on this site.

The gun culture of NRA supporters, I presume.
NOT the gun culture of Hollywood movies, video games and rap "music".
Am I right?

(You get what you tolerate)
It never fails to amaze me that the very people who are calling for more gun control and supposedly so concerned about children’s safety actively support a practice that has resulted in the slaughter of tens of millions of children in this country alone. Filthy hypocrites.

(Take back the GOP or kiss the USA goodbye)
When are these idiots going top wake up and realize that guns do not kill? It’s people who kill.
