    I went to school dureing the 60 ys An early 70 s.

    An teachers were allowed to use copral punishment in there arsenal of punishments in the UK
    Use of the cane was common place in boarding schools.

    In Scotland they hed an implement called the towse aleather strap thick leather belt not the kind for holding trousers up
    .Commonly refered to as the strap
    an the teacher gave you three or more hits across the palm of your hnd it bloody hurt.

    Bear in mind some teachers men useally started thre trajectory swing with the strap behind there own backs .

    Women useall only hit you from shoulder level but it could still sting.

    There was no humane way to implement it.

    An you get strapped for minor things like being late or talking in class falling asleep in class

    I got strapped all the time an never once did I feel like revenge on my teachers even when punished unjustly I just took it in my stride.

    Did I like it no .
    Did It make me full of hate resentment an a urge to go postal no never crossed my mind.

    So I can honestly say I have no idea what causes thease Kids to go schitzo at all times is due to then having a major reality break malfunction an the readily availability of guns to all in America Adults got them the kids no where there at an how to accsess an with no moral compass theases tragedys will become common place oops I forgot they already have.

    Coulanbine an Sandy Hook an numerous other incidents show nothing is going to change the gun lobby is GOD as far as N R A an the right to bear arms crowd cannot do the math

    Easy access to lots of guns

    = Lots an lots of spree shootings an suisides by spree shooting ect .

    When we live in a nation that the right to possess and use a gun, is more important than protecting a life, what could one expect? Once we lived in a nation that people could normally work out our differences peacefully, however today it seems the only way to resolve a problem is to use gun control (good aim?)…. Our nation can not even pass a budget in congress, much less attack and resolve the gun problem…. I know too many people who will not even walk to their mail box at the side of the road with out a gun in their pocket, of course if you knew our mail carrier, you might be tempted to do that as well, he is a walking talking NRA card carrying racist…..

    When does this insanity end ?? Maybe O’ Mara can put his spin on it and hold a conference. Yep….more guns readily available in the wild West.

    So any idea whose gun this was.

      The gun was innocent ergo the gun’s owner is innocent? How would the handgun lobbyists handle this one, who would they blame? Not the gun laws or gun owners, not the shooter, must be the victim’s fault.

    Another American tragedy. Prayers to all the families, including the shooter.
