Another school shooting
Not the least bit surprised
We live in a country where its very dangerous to send a kid to school
I'm sure we will have another school shooting before school summer vacation starts
Other countries would put a stop to this. Other countries would not tolerate children getting gunned down on a consistent basis year after year
That's why I don't own a gun
I refuse to be a part of the problem

Being a kid sounds like a nightmare nowadays, what with school shootings, bullying leading to suicide, zero-tolerance policies, and obsession with social media.

Glad I was kid back when all we had to worry about was doing homework and studying for tests.

Wait a minute, which political party am I supposed to associate with Nazis now?

It changes every week depending on who is being the bigger idiot....

If only there was something that could be done. Meanwhile, let's wring our hands and offer warm thoughts and prayers.
Thank gawd the NRA has our back.

Does this happen in Japan?
Does this happen in the UK?
Does this happen in Australia?

These are countries that care about their children. They did something about it.
The world is watching and wondering why we don't give a crap about children getting gunned down and executed

I've been trying to follow this case. Young hood in NJ fired off a half dozen rounds into a cop and later fired more than twenty shots at officers before being struck and taken down. He bought his gun from a hood rat who had bought it from a junkie.
Here is where it gets kind of interesting.
Almost fifteen year ago, a mans aging father moved into a rough neighborhood. He asked his son to loan him a gun for protection. Son came over ,and lent him a pistol and a handgun. The father had a live in girl friend and whenever they were broke they would pawn one or both guns. One day the woman is on the way to the pawn store when she encounters some of her former dealers and they end up trading her drugs for the gun. She tells the man but they agree not to say anything to the son. Meanwhile the dealers rent out the gun and its used in several robberies. Eventually it is traded to someone, it disappears for a decade and turns up in New Jersey .
The original owner claims he did nothing wrong and didn't know the gun was missing. His Dad says he didn't sell the gun so he did nothing wrong. The girlfriend is long gone.
So we have what purports to be a responsible gun owner whose gun, unbeknownst to him, has been used in several crimes , and used in at least one shooting.
At what point is a gun owner responsible for what is done with his weapons. This guy hasn't seen his gun in fifteen years and never tried to see it was secure. The father knew his gun was now in the hands of drug dealers but did nothing.
I honestly don't see why he and his dad are not charged in this.

Where's Lil Hoggy Boy, you just know
he's beside himself with excitement
over this. He's been on pins and needles
waiting to tell the Lefties how to spin
the next shooting.. What would they do
without him.

(hope he leaves the armbands at home
this time)
