    Looks like there was a shooting at a high school in Rockford.

    News from The Associated Press

    1 dead 3 wounded. How long you think before the lefties hop on this?

    Surprisingly, it's not even on CNN's front page yet - you'd think they'd be losing their minds over another school shooting - they love covering that stuff - especially if they can spin it against Trump.

    Could be the final nail on the coffin for the new Assault Weapon Ban legislation that Inslee is advocating to be passed here in Washington. I am monitoring it closely. WIth the Democratic take over of WA state government, I think they are just itching for all these encounters as a means to ban and even confiscate guns here in Washington state.

    Washington is the most anti-gun and pro-gun state mixed together. But, even the once conservative bastion of Spokane last election voted to strip away our gun rights with I-594.

    Things are looking bleak here in the Evergreen state.

    Maybe the system needs to be tightened up a touch? And maybe hire a counselor that pays attention to a HUGE
    red flag? Looks like this one could have been prevented----

    "l Harper, 15, a sophomore at the school, told The Associated Press that the suspect was a classmate who had long been obsessed with past school shootings.

    Harper said the suspect had brought notes to Freeman High in the beginning of the year, saying he might get killed or jailed and that some students alerted counselors."

    Gee its almost like the school officals had some kind of warnings about this. I remember when I was in high school (Graduated in 2012 so the school shooting thing was already well known of) I had a classmate who was very easily identifiable as "Not right in the head" get kicked out of school for his obsession with bombs. Everyone had a bad feeling about the way this kid acted even before he got expelled.

    It is a Misdemeanor to carry a gun onto a high school campus in Washington state. It is heart-breaking, but making the school a "Gun Free Zone" did very little to prevent this massacre. 9-1-1, as always, proved to be inefficient in saving the lives of our children.

    For better or worse, I find people do not take people's threats too seriously , as so many people make them but never carry out what they say. Most people usually even find such threats to be humorous, rather than intimidating. Our society, basically is a bit complacent and also it seems that most people think such horrible catastrophes can never happen to them or by anyone they know. Indeed, these events are for the most part rare, but I do believe as a whole we should be more vigilant and take more time to help people we feel are having troubles in their life, unhappy or being threatening, rather than chastise them, mock them and condemn them which is the more typical response that people will give to people like this. Sadly, as we can see, this cycle of behavior results in these unfortunate events we see, such as school shootings.
