School shooting renews gun control vs. mental health debate

Comments 22

  1. Who cares about the mental state of the criminal attacker? He was shooting indiscriminately for several minutes, with NO ONE able to shoot back. The "gun free school zone" makes for a target rich environment for anyone with some grudge and a weapon.
    To borrow the usual line from the antigun side, "How many need to die" before we get rid of ALL gun free zones, and allow the potential victims defend themselves?

  2. Thanks for calling me “retarded” FOX NEWS! For the record, I have a Complex Traumatic Brain Injury, I’m not retarded. But thanks for providing the example of how people are bullied and ridiculed and called names. McGruff & I are so proud of you!

  3. The United States has a societal problem that is the cause of so much gun carnage. Specifically, the U.S. has too much diversity and too much multiculturalism. And too much monetary inequality (housing cost are way too high and good paying jobs are in demand).Also our country is very punitive, 2 million people incarcerated, millions more with felony convictions.This is stressing the people of our land. Contrary to what the idiots on the liberal-left say: Racial diversity is a bane to civilized society. Multiculturalism and diversity are proven to cause hatred among the various groups. So long as different cultures are forced to live with each other, then there will continue to be racial discord and hostility. The best societies with the best quality of life in the world are the ones that are the most homogeneous and consist of intelligent people. Mixing people with low IQ's with people of high IQ's causes nothing but degradation of the whole diverse group. Whatever is good in the world is due to intelligent people, not idiots like the liberal left that embraces and comprise such groups as, LGBTQ and BLM. Make no mistake about this. It's easy to say that this young man, Cruz is a mentally deranged individual without questioning what causes people to do these insane things.We have a dysfunctional society that is in desperate need of being talked about to address the causes.

  4. 5.50 this guy wants to use the Israeli model .. is he nuts Israel is covered with enemies literally … there are hundreds of countries where there are no school shootings and they hiding close their school doors … it’s bec they don’t have guns floating in their country… why the hell do you need a weapon… if you stop selling guns the argument out is how will you protect your family but remember the bad guy is also not sold the guns…looks horrible to see these guys in a national television panel ….

  5. We have a generation of kids who are submersed in their own 3-feet of personal space, constantly on their devices, with no responsibility beyond "tapping a screen". Whatever game or APP it is that constricts their minds to the point where they are oblivious to their surroundings (you see it every single day), they are simply DISCONNECTED from reality. "Social Media", just like every position that leftists/marxists/communists support, is exactly the opposite of its own name. Affordable Health Care wasn't affordable, Social Security wasn't secure, and Net Neutrality wasn't neutral – it had an agenda. The Department of Education – introduced in 1977 – also introduced the decline in American educational standards. Everything the marxist does is counter-intuitive, and destructive. They (the left) would gladly kill a few dozen kids to get their agenda promoted. Why, after all, aren't they protesting at Planned Parenthood, where virtually every unborn child who goes in is KILLED? Why aren't they protesting in Chicago, where more people are killed in one year than all school shootings combined? Because it doesn't fit the AGENDA! The AGENDA is quite simple: YOU are simply TOO FREE, and that kind of liberty cannot be tolerated by a central state form of government. That's why they chant. Free people don't chant. Enslaved minions chant. Nobody fighting for anything REAL would acquiesce to a CHANT. How insulting to even the most basic intelligence. Why do you think ANTIFA "chanters" wear masks? Because the don't want to be identified, because they can't support their positions beyond wanting to be violent and disruptive. Look up Hitler's "Brown Shirts". Here – I'll help you.

  6. If guns were completely outlawed, the school would function more and more like prisons. Shanks, knives, etc. The problem is that these children are neglected. Not being disciplined, raised with respect, morals, compassion, most of all jesus. This boy needed a seriously active male role model that was interested in his life. Bottom line guns aren't the problem it's the person holding it

  7. America it’s simple you don’t need guns the public shouldn’t have guns
    It’s not fucking rocket science
    There is no need for a assault rifles
    No need for a sniper
    No need for any gun
    And not to mention a kid can buy a gun is absolutely stupid
    How many more lives
    Is making money more important than a life

  8. this problem lies made by far leftist, elitists, socialist,
    communist, democrats attacking others for one of their own doing another crime.
    all people who had power to act to stop the shooter of these groups I pointed
    out, lack facts this shooter had these groups protect him till he killed like
    every other shooter did too. banning tools for the committed evil who will not
    obey laws being made up evil shooters will obey laws is liars. abusing the kids
    of weakest mind sheep who will not be honest and say they had power to remove
    this shooter done, but after that those liberals socialist communist leftists
    democrats. chosen not to enforce laws on this shooter  or any shooter till too late the Obama
    appointed f.b.i. said we will not interfere. the truth is stop the pc languages
    are what gave this shooter and all shooters to enable these bad guys. only real
    bad people are the far left liberals socialist communist democrat show do not
    even know president is not charge of any branch but his. these groups are liars
    are starting no debate but shutdown all debate none of them will listen, it is
    being ordered to shut up or die from these cries must stop, we got see concrete
    set of ideas which are not lies these new laws will make us safer, that is
    total lie facts proven no law disobeyed can fix evil, yet truth says let school
    and people stop pc correct language every where. the Obama political appointees
    refuse to protect these kids, go find real guilty parties they are all the
    liberal, socialist, communist, leftist, democrats so stop taking this too far emotions
    are source wrong when fact less or no truth. give schools more guards and metal
    detectors and stop covering up for the sick shooters who openly state their
    goals, then are not locked up the shooters have enablers give them a free pass,
    these poor kids now died sadly. let say stop pc correctness out when these
    liberal, socialist, communist, leftist, democrats are removed from all
    firearms  to stop these shootings would
    help a lot more.

  9. General George Washington – “A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined. But they should have a sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them. Which would include their own government.”

    George Washington Farewell Address: The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion" …and later: "…reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle…"

    “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible.”

    “What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ.” [speech to the Delaware Indian Chiefs May 12, 1779]

    "To the distinguished character of patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian" [May 2, 1778, at Valley Forge]

    During his inauguration, Washington took the oath as prescribed by the Constitution but added several religious components to that official ceremony. Before taking his oath of office, he summoned a Bible on which to take the oath, added the words “So help me God!” to the end of the oath, then leaned over and kissed the Bible.

    Nelly Custis-Lewis (Washington’s adopted daughter):

    Is it necessary that any one should [ask], “Did General Washington avow himself to be a believer in Christianity?" As well may we question his patriotism, his heroic devotion to his country. His mottos were, "Deeds, not Words"; and, "For God and my Country."

    “O Most Glorious God, in Jesus Christ, my merciful and loving Father; I acknowledge and confess my guilt in the weak and imperfect performance of the duties of this day. I have called on Thee for pardon and forgiveness of my sins, but so coldly and carelessly that my prayers are become my sin, and they stand in need of pardon.” “I have sinned against heaven and before Thee in thought, word, and deed. I have contemned Thy majesty and holy laws. I have likewise sinned by omitting what I ought to have done and committing what I ought not. I have rebelled against the light, despising Thy mercies and judgment, and broken my vows and promise. I have neglected the better things. My iniquities are multiplied and my sins are very great. I confess them, O Lord, with shame and sorrow, detestation and loathing and desire to be vile in my own eyes as I have rendered myself vile in Thine. I humbly beseech Thee to be merciful to me in the free pardon of my sins for the sake of Thy Dear Son and only Savior Jesus Christ who came to call not the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Thou gavest Thy Son to die for me.”

    [George Washington; from a 24 page, authentic handwritten manuscript book dated April 21-23, 1752

    William J. Johnson George Washington, the Christian (New York: The Abingdon Press, New York & Cincinnati, 1919), pp. 24-35.]

    "Although guided by our excellent Constitution in the discharge of official duties, and actuated, through the whole course of my public life, solely by a wish to promote the best interests of our country; yet, without the beneficial interposition of the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, we could not have reached the distinguished situation which we have attained with such unprecedented rapidity. To HIM, therefore, should we bow with gratitude and reverence, and endeavor to merit a continuance of HIS special favors". [1797 letter to John Adams]

    What this contrasting between two Leaders one actual and one fictitious is this: Today our first President of the Republic of America General George Washington is in Heaven. Tomorrow our first imposter treasonous President Alinskyite Community Organizer Obama will be awaiting entry into hell.

    Trump 2016, wall 2017, and Establishment Beast of Usury (EBU), including Obama and his like legion of Marxist-Muslim handlers, are damned.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Amen
