It's a shame. I hope some sort of strategy can be developed that will help the situation.

this is life, there is no magical solution that will stop violence forever, its a part of life. However you can take steps to protect you and your family if it were ever to happen to you. Such as buy a gun. Why do people live in such a fantasy world that think, we can get rid of violence, poverty, and hunger.....its just how it is, grow up.
