like in real life, tell the juvenile that his actions and words are not acceptable and then ignore him. they thrive on attention.
if he doesn't bring anything of intelligent value to the conversation how can you engage him without stooping to his level and then also not be contributing anything of intelligent value to the conversation?

Most people can understand both: the emotions of the parents of the dead children wanting answers for the slaughter, and the cause of the deaths of these children being from an assault rifle that should not have been made available for sale and would not have been save for the tiny-dicked boys in the NRA who want to make sure they are available to anyone and everyone.
in stead of fixation on a rifle...how many would have died if he would have used explosives or poison?
instead of fixating on a rifle... why don't you look to see if there might be a more sinister motive behind these killings? you all are playing the game that those who might be involved in this want you to play.

just what are the facts of this case? why the elementary school across town when the high school where he had his social issues was right near his home? was he let into the school or did he shoot his way in? where are the eye witnesses? tell me no one saw him at all during any of this. he walked from his car to the school, walked down the hall of the school and no one saw him? why is this story no longer a story? what are the facts that now have been uncovered?

Then they (we Americans) would have looked into explosives or poison and asked if there was something we could do to prevent them to be used again? if they had a practical purpose in our society that we should have to be exposed to them?

But the used a assault weapon and he used the same kind of assault weapon that was used by the theater shooter and the same kind of assault weapon used to kill the fire fighter the next week, and Americans had to ask themselves: why is it that we have to put up with a minority that insist they should be able to buy these deadly toys when there is no reason for them whatsoever.

None.

The practical solution is: not allow this toy- this toy that has no practical contribution to our society- to be sold to people like you who should not be allowed to own firearms in the first place.

The most important fact was: the NRA made a weapon that has no practical purpose in our society available to this apparently mentally disturbed man and it cost us another 27 people.

And one very practical solution is obvious.

see, no intelligent answers just the same regurgitated spam, it's always the gun accompanied by an insult.

why don't you tell us what else was common between the theater shooter and the connecticut shooter? you won't because with you it all is about guns and never about motives.

oh, and btw explosives are heavily regulated but what's his name managed to blow up a whole building without even going inside. a whole lot of kids died there also but we don't hear a peep out of your ilk about that.
poison is regulated also but it would not have taken much for him to have volunteered in the cafeteria and then poison the whole school.
but then there are no video games that play those kind of games now are there?

Ah, for you, even with 27 bodies with ten and eleven bullet holes in them, it is NEVER the gun and maybe it's the video games and maybe it is the sugar in the diet .

While most Americans look at the 27 bodies and they say: there is something wrong with the people who insist people- virtually everyone with $800- should have access to assault weapons.

And now they put markers in fertilizer and they keep track of who buys it and how much they buy.

PS: It is a lot harder to fill up a truck fertilizer and make it into a bomb than it is to walk down to the corner gun store and buy an assault weapon and 500 rounds of ammo.

you obviously aren't a farmer and have never bought fertilizer. but that's ok, most farmers here don't have to buy their fertilizer it's often available for free and sometimes they get paid to take it. so much for your theory of gov markers and oversight.

keep on talking about what you don't know about. it is much simpler to say it was the gun and maybe it was bush's fault.

your thinking is very shallow. there is a much deeper and sinister connection to these shooting and you can add the one in aledo tx to the list as well as the nanny who stabbed the children of the ceo of a major news station in ny.

oh and really? not many people have access to an $800 gun. why don't you keep it real and stick to the facts.
