these school shooters obviously are crazies if you ask me. no amount of gun control is gonna stop a psyco from shooting up the place when he/she descends that far into madness. somehow, there needs to be some intervention before the lunatics get to the point where they're gonna shoot the place up...

i don't have any answers. don't own any guns, don't know if the common interpretation of the amendment that allows the right of citizens to bare arms is what the founders actually had in mind either...

Gun control wouldn't have stopped this event. Unless we systematically destroy every gun owned by the general populace and come up with a way to enforce the strictest gun control on the planet, some idiot will always have access to a firearm, ammunition, and (very unfortunately) people at which to shoot.

Oddly enough, if we outlaw guns, gun crime will escalate to seemingly enormous proportions, since the simple act of owning a gun will become a crime.

Kooks & Criminals love "Gun Free Zones" because "Gun Control" has made them very safe....Safe for the Kook & Criminal.

+1 - thats all I'm saying on this subject..

By control I personally mean some way to regulate where guns end up. I think the most evident thing is that we have way too many weapons in this country floating around in the wrong channels. When you compare our violent crimes involving firearms to European or other foreign countries it is astounding the difference. What do they do right that we do so wrong to maintain control on this?

I understand what you're saying and I'm not smart enough to come up with the solution.
As for the European nations, they were willing to give up their liberties for security and I for one(and most of the US) will not

Would it have made you feel better if he would have blown the place up instead?

There are plenty of ways to kill people if you want to - society needs to stop letting TV and the internet raise their kids.

And for those who like to compare the crime in the US to that of the European countries should really read this article published in the HARVARD JOURNAL OF LAW AND PUBLIC POLICY.

Really getting to be ridiculous. This country needs some gun control and fast.
Easy to say when you're not the one someone opens fire on. What do you tell the nut ready to shoot you "there are gun control laws, you will go to jail".

Well, you don't read about this happening in England. Stricter gun control laws there, or less of a f$%#% up culture? I agree with the NRA...and for that reason I think it's time to repeal the second amendment.
