RE: Another school shooting.
This is awful, and I'm not sure of the solution anymore. Always gets to me after I hear these stories, people will come out of nowhere stating that they knew the shooter and how he was 'depressed' or 'a little off,' etc. What needs to be done is people need to stop being afraid to report people to authorities if they sense that the person might be a danger to society. Or get the person help. Or something. Happens all the time, we hear how people in the shooter's life noticed problems but basically said or did nothing to help the person. I might be off base, but these are just things I've noticed with these stories.

Be true to yourself. Heart

RE: Another school shooting.
Why can't we just grieve the loss and not always start some political BS arguments about why it happened without even knowing what happened. What we say on a random Atheist forum is not gonna change things anyways.

Two people said he asked the students if they were Christian, if they said yes they were shot in the head, if they said no or didn't answer they were shot in the legs.

That's just fucked up.

I read that too...I am curious as to the reasoning for that. I wonder how much information will actually come to light as to the reason and the methods chosen.

RE: Another school shooting.
I was bummed out and noticeably sad all day because of this so I left work early. I ran into my mom on the bus and we talked (she actually didn't even know it happened) and it made me feel better. She's a general practice lawyer (who grew up in Oregon, btw), so she has dealt with pretty much every type of case, and that informs her opinions on violence and guns.

What is interesting is that she and I had never talked about this stuff before (shootings, gun control) nor has she raised me to have any particular views on those matters. But she and I basically have the same opinions on these things. Pretty cool Smile.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

I believe that's pretty much what the columbine kids were doing when they were shooting fellow students in their library. (Thinking of it again, maybe that wasn't reported from reality but I'm only thinking it was the case because of the movie, Elephant)

Hewyoods basically again trying to derail a thread to complain about his view of how things should exist & being the typical troll of ignoring direct responses again.

RE: Another school shooting.
I don't even care about discussing guns and mental health right now. All I can say is, "What the fuck is wrong with people to want to do this in the first place."

I feel so sorry for the victims and their families. One day you're getting education and trying to better your life, and the next thing you know, some piece of crap shoots the place up. What the hell is wrong with people? Fuck dude.
