    Apparently more have been killed in shooter incidents in schools so far this year than active military personnel.

    31 people have died this year in school shooting incidents.
    29 U.S military members have died in combat and non-combat incidents.
    That’s roughly 1 person every 4 1/2 days. One could argue that fatalities are part of the job for the military, but explain schools.

    It happens so often my first reaction has become “Another one?” The only more predictable thing than the shootings is the lawmakers making “bold” statements of outrage, sympathy and invoking God then sitting idly by doing nothing until the next time they get to publicly express outrage.

      yes more people are killed in gun free zones by guns than where we don’t have restrictions on guns..We all know that.

      • james blue

        This “gun free zone” argument is total c**p in every instance it’s made, However the Santa fe school was NOT a gun free zone. It had a shooting plan, armed officers and had practiced before with a false alarm

      Every time it happens I repeat to as many people as I can the “Onion” headline from a few years ago. “‘Nothing Can Be Done About This’ Says the Only Country Where This Regularly Happens”

    Once again were reminded by this young man who took others lives that God does not Love us people because were worthy. We are of worth because God loves us, lived perfectly for all people and died for all of our sins… Martin Luther.
