Right now we blane guns because it's easier than facing the actual reason. The people who are willing to help are few and far. I personnally would do anything to help one of these people out, but I don't know who they are or posses the resources to help them. and it hurts, badly, I don't want to go on when I hear stories like this. I may joke, but that's just me trying to fight off the pain.

People are wildly pointing at anything for the cause. If violent video games, divorce, lack of gods, or guns themselves were the cause, then nerds, 3/4ths the population, atheists, and NRA members and rednecks everywhere would be dying in record numbers. No one seems to care about the why, just the who. "Who can I blame?" Was this kid (he was 20, not even old enough to drink, so he was a kid to me) bullied in school? Why did he seem to target the authority figures in his life? He was most likely just mentally unhinged. Not crazy, mind you. He had enough wits to wear a bulletproof vest and the guilt to kill himself when he was done... so certainly not crazy.

Also, why do people seem to prefer schools to do their shootings? Because they are tightly packed with targets, have very few escape routes (maybe each school room should have a fire exit door), and are the least likely place to find armed resistance. So my first thought would be to ensure that each school has a few security guards and maybe a few guns in a lock box somewhere. At least have the teachers all have access to panic buttons or something. The gas station near my house has a cop hanging out in it every night due to the high robbery rate. Can't we do the same with our schools?
I don't agree that no one is asking why. Yes, there are some opportunists who piggy-back on these incidents and certainly focus on the wrong things - e.g., those pushing for gun control. However, there are plenty of people asking why. The answer is difficult, however, when almost always these shooters commit suicide and so we can't ask them.

In addition, I don't agree that school are the preference. There have been mall, work place, and theater shootings as well. Typically, when it's a school, it's a student doing the shooting and that's why the school is chosen. This one is an exception (although the details aren't complete and this 20 year old isn't long out of school).
