    Just for information; One shooter down and some injury of Children and Teachers.
    Why are these things happening so much now? Law Enforcement still at the School. Just seen this on "Good Morning America".

    A book I read daily has the answer to that question. But can't go into that here and there would be many who would argue my assertion. But that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

    Strangle there was a man that attacked a school in China with a knife on the same day.
    BBC News - China school knife attack in Henan injures 22 children

    It seems so wrong to me to attack a school or at a school. My heart goes out to the families of everyone there. I don't know how freaked out I would be if something happened at my kids school.

    On a larger topic, and hopefully not too off topic, I would be curious to see the statistics for violent attacks that are random victims and not the classic money, drugs, women, religion variety. With the increase in technology/media are we hearing about them more or are they on the rise?

    Well the theaters and malls didn't have the desired effect, maybe the schools and children will?

    Better stock up on magazines and rifles while you can. It's coming folks. Incidents like this only add fuel to the fire for the anti's.

    I just heard 27 dead, many are children.
    Early reports are normally not to be trusted, but even if its inflated a little its still going to be horrendous.
    A grade school, a holisTIC weekend ahead of these children and their families. And then this.
    Sounds like one shooter is dead, not confirming any additional shooters yet.

    But this isn't supposed to happen at schools. They are gun-free zones aren't they?
