How the hell can it be "second degree murder" when it took forethought to A)acquire the firearm, B)to bring it into the school, then C)to retrieve in order to perform the deed?

Well lets see here I'm 33 now and back when I was in jr high I was teased mercilessly, teachers ether blame the victim or did nothing at all. It was easier to put me in a class for kids with behavior disorders then to deal with the students who were torturing me.
All this time and nothing's changed. So ya.. don't get your hopes up for change any time soon.
Most teachers don't give a damn about your kids, and those who run the schools only care about the money.

I agree. This was clearly first degree murder, which he should have been convicted of, and sentenced to life in prison with no parole.
