    Why isn't anyone talking about the gun? How did a disturbed kid get a gun? It's the gun, in the hands of a disturbed person, that kills. What will it take for people to understand that no one needs a handgun?

    I was wondering if any one checked out to see if the that kid was bullied???It didnt give him the right to kill all those ppl but if they go back and look at the school records if they didnt get rid of them.. there will be some reason that kid used the gun. My experience with the school system where i live..is bad about takin up for the kids that are more
    privileged than other kids.

    Who is the real victim in this crime? Yes, It's very unfortunate that anyone has lost their lives. But, it's also very devastating when a child who doesn't have the comprehension to handle being harassed and feel they have to go to this extreme to defend himself. How is this any different then that child leaping off that bridge. BULLYING NEED TO BE A LAW. People who bully are the one's getting away with murder. It need to stop and it need to stop now.

    What is enlightening about America and the representatives of and officials connected with the shooting at the Ohio School is that not one word has been uttered about what killed the two students. It wasn't the problem kid it was a GUN. Nothing in the press, TV Radio has even mentioned the word GUN, that the killer carried, smuggled into school. We learn about the shooter's demeanor, the cold bloody attack, discussion on the motive but not a word about the GUN!

    The school superintendent proclaimed that everyone will be SAFE on reopening the school. But still no mention of the GUN or are half the student body carrying arms? Possibly CNN will be brave enough – Anderson Cooper or Piers Morgan will ask for an investigation as to how the kid brought the GUN into school. It is a sad day for the parents of the victims and also for the shooter – I trust that the school authorities will focus all their attention in the coming days to ensure that the school is really safe and that all weapons are handed in to the office before class starts!!
