"School shooting in US checklist":
1. Send thoughts & prayers but not actually do anything useful. <check>
2. Argue over semantics of the term "assault rifle". <check>
3. Argue over semantics of the term "terrorist" - if Muslim use it, if Christian use term "lone wolf" <check>
4. Congress does nothing but NRA increases donations just in case <check>
5. Attribute shooting to mental health issue only. Do nothing again. <check>
6. Add more guns. If only there was a 'good guy' with a gun handy. <check>
7. Ignore correlation between gun violence and gun ownership in other industrialized countries. <check>
8. Argue about 2nd Amendment and ignore the whole “well-regulated” part. <check>
9. If we only had a Wall. <check>
10. Wait for next one, repeat

Besides nuts like this guy, I still don't understand why terrorists haven't gone after soft targets like schools. They did in in Chechnya. Security seriously needs to be upgraded at our schools.

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

One of my FB friends posted this. I agree with all of this.

I’m a gun owner, hunter, target shooter and concealed permit owner. So I guess not your typical liberal.
But I don’t have a problem with a number of limitations:

1. Mag limits. 10 round max. Yes, it’s loads of fun to empty a 30 rnd clip at the range, but I’m willing to give that up.

2. End production and sales of all semi-auto rifles larger than 22 caliber to the general public. Not confiscation. Just end the proliferation. If you can’t hit your big game animal with one shot, you need more range time.

3. Make illegal all modifications to increase rate of fire.

4. Background checks for every gun sale. Every single one.

The next several are the most important, as far as I’m concerned:

5. Repeal all legislation created to limit study of gun violence.

6. Establish a national database with the CDC specific for violent crimes, with standardized information for documenting gun violence.

7. Make it mandatory for all LEO agencies to participate in data gathering and submission to the database. This is to include every incident involving a firearm, whether discharged or not, whether LEO or civilian. We cannot have a reasonable discussion without data, and we don’t have accurate data.

This is a response (since deleted) from one of the students to Donald's "prayers and condolences". Lots more from her and other students and parents. But it's probably too soon for them to be tweeting about it, right? And it seems some of the people offering "thoughts and prayers" are (oddly) deleting their tweets.

@chaddiedabaddie · 18 hours ago
I don’t want your condolences you ****ing price of ****, my friends and teachers were shot. Multiple of my fellow classmates are dead. Do something instead of sending prayers. Prayers won’t fix this. But Gun control will prevent it from happening again.

Oh! What a relief! :whew: Only 8! Or one every five-and-a-half days. That gives us until Monday till we can't talk about keeping guns out of psychos hands again.

The math is a bit fuzzy, but the Post article says "Five of Everytown’s 18 school shootings listed for 2018 happened during school hours and resulted in any physical injury. "

But I agree that even 5 is 5 too many.
