    Guess you could search the students prior to entry each day but that would take time and violate their rights. So, let ’em in and take the consequences!

    Guns don’t kill people. Comic art,kills people.

    If you didn’t have bullying, often with the open cooperation by school authorities, this wouldn’t happen. I know about it – I was bullied at Upper Moreland schools in Willow Grove, PA, and if I tried to resist or fight back, I would be punished while the bullies got off scot-free. If I had access to weapons when I was in school, I would have pulled a Columbine back in 1978.

    That crap stopped several years after I left high school. Besides, very few people bully someone who is 6’2", 265#!

    Bullying will be the “defense” of the young man. However, he did kill at least three and wounded so many others. Not counting the terror h inflicted on the entire school and city. Justice demands action. Maybe the uncle with the gun left lying about should be the one…

    Try as we might we can no more eliminate bullying than we can eliminate ignorance. The best we can do is teach oour children how to deal with it, but for some reason that is one job we refuse.

    You’re right, the Uncle who left the pistol unsecured should be jailed for this as well.

    Catch 22:
    If we put Metal Detectors and Security Guards in Schools we are damaging our childrens image of safety.
    But if we do not put Metal Detectors and Security Guards in Schools we are putting their lives in Danger.
    Whats to do???

    For those of you who are in agreement with the concept behind the cartoon, what is it you want?
    The gun he had was illegal, your idealized law was in place. Your law failed!!!

    Only a member of the militia could have a gun yet amazingly he still had one. What would you want the law to be, different from what it is, to satisfy your gun limitation desires?

    There are no guns allowed in DC, as per your reading of the constitution, yet that is one of the handgun murder capitals of the country.

    What change in the law do you want?

    Let’s set aside certain States where guns are basically unrestricted and other States where guns are very tightly controlled. The results would be a good study into Darwinism.

    yes yes let’s be PC here. Take all the guns away from those that own them legally and abide by the law of the land. Now, do you really believe that will eliminate the problem? All you have done is insure that the only people that have access to and carry weapons are criminals and law enforcement. And some of you think that law enforcement can be classified as criminal.

    Wouldn’t it be better to educate rather than criminalize? But – if you are honest about it – what are we teaching our youth about the “sanctity” of life? And yes, the casual approach to abortion as a women’s “health” issue does not help. Along with the violence in games and other forms of entertainment and the fact that we have taught young people to run scared to an adult instead of leaning how to defuse a situation on their own with their peers. And yes sometimes that means a physical altercation.

    I do agree that the “uncle” should be held accountable.
