It is so easy (and juvenile) to make this about Heaven and Hell, good and evil, or religious fairy tales. But where was this God to protect and save those 20 children. Hell, where is God to save the hundreds of children around the world who die a violent and wicked death every day? All of the nonsense is just the way for people who need a crutch to go through life have a way to avoid reality and/or deal with the real issues that lead up to this.

Reagan closed down all the Insane Asylums… the NRA has lobbied for decades for the “freedom” to have our neighborhoods and communities flooded with guns… we are a society of violence, who believes in resolving problems with violence, be it with ‘Stand your ground’ laws or bombing (whoever the latest enemy is) back to the stone ages.

People don’t want to look in the mirror, or at their “perfect” little world that they have been brainwashed into believing is the greatest country on earth with freedoms that every nation envies or hates… but hey, those 20 kids are in Heaven and the gunman is in Hell…

That counts for something, right?

Agents need to visit the pharmacy.

Take This Antidepressant, and You Too May Have a Violent Psychotic Break

A review of FDA’s Adverse Event reports “identified 31 drugs responsible for most of the FDA case reports of violence toward others, with antidepressants near the top of that list.” Time magazine posted an article entitled “Top Ten Legal Drugs Linked to Violence” in which five of the top ten are SSRI antidepressants: fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), fluvoxamine (Luvox), venlafaxine (Effexor), and desvenlafaxine (Pristiq).

The other school shooters proved this.

Perhaps he had his brothers' i.d. on him to use for purchasing a weapon, since his brother is older, perhaps has so history of problems? Our prayers and thoughts go out to all 26 families of the horrific tragedy and massacre. That's what it is, a massacre. What's the worse massacre? This is second, which one is the first? Can't think of one that's impacted our thoughts so much. I've hardly had a dry eye this weekend. Heart wrenching. All these shooters seem to be young white males, from very upscale, decent communities. Columbine, Colorado, Oregon, little Andy Williams fro CA.

Sorry for the typos, very upset. His brother probably had NO history of issues.

I see 2 issues already. 1) the economy. People can't hardly afford healthcare prices, let alone extra care for mental health issues. Republicans keep ruining the country and peoples' financial situations.
2) people have to agree to have mental help, or to be involved some sort of mental health intervention. If someone exhibits mental instabilities, their family members should be able to have them put somewhere for evaluation and help. The police should have some stronger jurisdiction there.

Awww, Pat hates the idea of citizens actually being able to stand up to the very violence he decries.

People, the bottom line is this: It's time to tell the NRA that they aren't going to run our country or our Gov't anymore! It's time to tell them that the era of Big NRA is over! Lord God Obama, have that moment!

Right. Balme it on the NRA.
Do you also blame AAA when someone uses their car in an unsafe manner and someone else dies as a result?
Bet you don't. That would require consistency.

Most of the stories on this site describe events that occurred after the year 2000. The increase in online news material and the efficiency of search engines has greatly increased the ability to track stories. Even these 4,800+ documented stories only represent the tip of an iceberg since most stories do not make it into the media. There are 115 cases of bizarre behavior, 66 school shootings/incidents, 68 road rage tragedies, 19 air rage incidents, 101 arson cases, 70 postpartum depression cases, over 1,000 murders (homicides) or murder attempts, over 300 murder-suicides (30% committed by women) and other acts of violence including workplace violence on this site. There are also over 100 Journal Articles and FDA reports listed in the Index. They are at the top of the Index immediately below the 66 school shootings/incidents and the 29 "won" criminal cases.

Yep, look people. The NRA feels the threat already. Sure. Trying to come out in force. Who are these NRA people to try to run our country and our Gov't members, who are they to try to RUIN it??? Once these 26 families get brave, ALL the other victims of these tragedies ca JOIN FORCES! To create an anti-gun lobby. To change the lawa. They all have picked for a purpose. God hasn't let one of these tragedies happen for no reason. These families must comprehend their journey, their meaning, their purpose. All the way to the Columbine victims. They all must join together and FIGHT! Get out of the way NRA, you are in for a battle, finally, and you know it's coming. Your reign is at an end!

Thanks, I have been switching back and forth between stations, and do know all the weapons were registered in here name, purchased legally. None the less, the child/boy did have some "issues", and and guns were in the house. He went with his mother to learn to shoot, at the gun range. The boy knew his stuff. He definitely knew how to shoot. Oddly, to me, he killed all his victims in order of importance, or whom he felt played the largest roles in his life, or the fault of his problems. Principle and counselors first, teachers second, students last. Seems that's the method of killing to me. Lucky for those 3 students that ran out. Thank God.
