    To take the life of innocent kids like that is just sick. I mean what can be missing in your soul to PHYSICALLY kill, not only a person, but a child..and not just A child...but 19 children. As a father I can't even wrap my head around this and I give my deepest condolences to the families that have to go through this. God this just breaks my heart.

      @Tamale We can prevent this by requiring universal background checks and mental health evaluations.

      @Michin too many damn people stacked on top of each other. If the doc tells you they could have this or that then it’s not worth being into this harsh world. I don’t care how bad I sound, I have 4 kids at 24, I think all the time of the crazy shit that happens and what could happen to them. Thankfully they are healthy and happy. It was a discussion with my wife and I because MONEY. It’s hard but it gets done. It would be even harder if one had some kind of disability or what have you. It should ALWAYS be an option. Some don’t want the child, child gets to 5 hrs old and is murdered, or goes straight to overpopulated adoption, struggle their entire life etc etc all because the parent(s) don’t want them and what about the formula shortage??? Why the fuck would we want more kids brought in without an alternative to breast milk??? Some moms lack vitamins and nutrients needed for baby. Like, calcium. There goes their teeth/ bones by the time they are 30. Some moms can produce enough or any. The incompetence of our president echos through this nation. Stupid follows stupid.

I'm not even political at all, and I do not believe that our society has a normal view of guns. A lot of young people think that that is the answer to their frustration and anger they feel. Is to take it out on other people with guns which is what society has shown can make you powerful, instantaneously.

      Lana, your comment was respectful. A moment of silence to reflect on the horrific nature of this tragedy is necessary. People need to recognize the poor health of our society to understand that people are becoming increasingly uncivilized and not valuing the sanctity of human life. Guns don't kill people; sick and twisted people do. The problems are from the irresponsible and corrupt system of governance in our country today.

    I’m happy to hear that there are grief counselors, but I honestly think that the trauma is so raw that asking these children questions or even speaking words of comfort can trigger the horrific traumatic emotions which can cause a negative effect. They need someone they trust; a mother, father the closest family member to just hold them tight. Trust is important right now. These children have just lost every sense of security. May God cover them with his protective arms. ❤️🙏🥲

      @Julia Parker “leaders too busy worrying about telling women what to do with their bodies” states you are pro-abortion. “Focus on gun control” tells me you are definitely on the left side of the fence. All I’m saying is if children being murdered is traumatizing to you, than you should be strictly against abortion. But you have no counter to an idea you know full-well is hypocritical, so instead you just run away.

    The pain from losing innocence to gun violence is beyond words my daughters father was gunned down last summer for doing nothing but standing in a driveway you have more questions then answers and a empty void that will never be filled, losing a child to it... god bless every soul that was lost 🙏
    The anger and frustration is directed completely on the shooter but as a parent, my issue if my child went to that school not including the victims parents they have enough they're dealing with but every single parent of the rest of the student body needs to ralley up and get down to the district building and get answers for why this murderer was able to enter the school period
    Every parent to a young child knows how schools have a safety system to where an adult even during the beginning of the day to the end cannot just walk up and enter any building, i lived in 3 states including texas that followed the same system from elementary to high school, especially school hours every door locked and one way in and you have to buzz a video intercom to be let in, forget the sympathy speechs and we need to change gun law speeches that do nothing, why are we not concerned about how he was able to access those angels in the first place and hold the school and district responsible for not protecting these kids, this is the world we live in now unfortunately so every school throughout the nation from small towns to large cities should have a safety system for an active shooter period
    there are monsters in this world and we parents trust schools to protect our babies like we do every second of everyday from them, theres no excuse for negligence

    People need to teach their kids, children, teens to have respect for human life.
    And how to cope with stress. This is ridiculous! Why do our teachers have to go through this? Why do our kids have to go through this!?? Why!
    Teach your kids respect and that everything has a solution, the only thing we cannot come back from is death.

      @Lee Johnson I agree we should not allow people with these mental issues have access to guns. My concern is people who don't understand gun laws are willing to take them away from law abiding citizens. On a daily bases our constitution is threatened by corrupt politicians. Yet most don't know or realize because they don't pay attention. We spend billions on other countries, when we can use that for our schools and mental illness.

      @Lee Johnson the constitution states we can own guns period. Ok I'll give you a good example. Let's look at Mexico that has stict gun laws. How's the gun crime there? California has very strict gun laws and is very hard to own a gun there. Look at the gun violence there. Do you know where gun violence is higher? Gun free zones.

Whenever a tragedy of this magnitude happens to anyone it hurts like hell but when it happens to children there are no words to make you understand the reasoning behind it. If the shooter felt so miserable about his life then he should have ended his own life no one else’s! I do not condone taking ones life but if he were feeling a need to do so, I wished he had instead of the children and ruining the lives of all these families because THEY didn’t deserve this not one bit and to know he devastated a community and these families because HE didn’t graduate are you frigging kidding me 🤬? Giving him the death penalty isn’t enough I swear. These senseless shootings and killings MUST stop!!! I am emotionally exhausted 🥺😭

    We weep with those who weep today. When I first heard about this, I felt, “O No, Not another mass shooting again, and more misery in our country.” Lord, how wickedness and evil has infected our nation. The lives of young children snuffed out, those little faces, just kids. What troubles me also is the hypocrisy and the superficial indignation of pro-abortion politicians who have no problem with the slaughter of unborn children in the womb, including late term and after. Lord, how long? Hear our prayers, O Lord.

      How dare you bring up your personal anti-abortion agenda here!!! A fetus is a cluster of cells; it is not a little person who was born and is now doing what kids should be able to do without the risk that they may get gunned down. They have that right in other countries, but not here. Here, the GOP & NRA decided guns are an essential household item & it's normal to carry them around like an additional limb. An object made solely to kill has more value than human life; let that sink in.

  • Kevin M

    We have learned in the overnight period that the shooter had a presence on social media, and that he used that to indicate to at least one person his anger and frustration. These types nearly always reveal their intent in some manner, and those who have reason to suspect a problem frequently fail to act.
    If we learn anything from this, it's that our elected officials need to implement a system of reporting those who are reasonably suspected of being near a breaking point, and making that information available to the appropriate agency. Of course, that system must also contain a criminal code for misuse or abuse of that system. I am NOT talking about " red flag " laws, they leave the troubled person on the streets.
    In the interim, we need to place police officers at every public school, as many as needed to prevent killers from entering these buildings.

    It’s a horrible tragedy.
    Why do you keep “catch & release” criminals ? Why don’t they get prosecuted and put in jail or prison & stay & due the time there? Why has a young woman in Siskiyou County California allowed to stay on the streets while she continues to steal vehicles? Why is police department not arresting the people committing burglary, grand theft, dealing drugs, etc., etc. that are repeat offenders. In Shasta & Siskiyou County. N human trafficking.
    Nope they want to take our rights away to bear arms. Something is very wrong going on.
    Maybe kids are being programmed through abuse, satanic influences, drugs, through wicked TV shows that are promoting magic, that are antichrist. They grow up get triggered and some become shooters. Lawlessness will run rampant in the last days.

    We need to implement a new system of security for every single school. I recommend:
    1. No car can enter the school premises without permission. There should be security checks and a gate to allow traffic onto a school lot.
    2. One school entrance door with security and metal detectors. Once all students and faculty are in, the doors should be LOCKED. If someone is late and needs to come in, there should be a system in place to verify the person before buzzing them in.
    3. Every classroom should have a "panic room" button. IDK how, but once clicked, metal gates come down to block the entrance to the room. Maybe even gates to come down on major hallways to cut off the suspects movements.
    4. Every little joke, minor threat, or even the smallest suspicion must be investigated to the fullest extent of the law.
    We need ridiculous measures for this country's ridiculous reoccurring tragedies.
