If I were 14 to 18, I'd refuse to go to school and opt for home schooling.

I think by now we can say any student who makes that decision is being wise, not being a sissy.

a student is twice as likely to be struck by lightning as they are to be present during a mass shooting event.

What's going on psychologically in this country??

Its guns. No other country has this problem

I really can't believe you're all so shocked each time. You're obsessed with guns. Bill Hicks had it right. Make ammo so ridiculously expensive that you can't afford it.

Thoughts and prayers etc.

Yes and no. Bad students are going to get the guns regardless. So the solution should be to arm every student /s

Half is access to guns.

Just as obviously, to me at least, it's that there's something fundamentally wrong psychologically with these people. Not much different than serial killers, and it's certainly being studied.

They're male. What other characteristics do they share?
White, nearly all?
Middle class?

if we assume you're accurate in assessing the problem, what's your solution?

Read the fucking post and maybe you will learn.

And where did your stat about lightening come from and what the actual does it mean?

Probably the most stupid stat I've ever heard.

Psych meds are a big factor IMO.

Didn't hear yet about the buffalo shooter's medications or lack thereof...but the majority of shooters were on psych meds.
Those things fuck your head in a bad way from what I have seen.

Not sure about the nearly all white thing, the coverage is different for these events depending upon shooters race.

I agree
Only the rich should be able to have ammo

Only for the over fives. And so long as they have had training. AND. And this is the kicker. They can only have single shooters. Can't risk them taking out friendlies as they shoot the bad guys.

From what I've seen working in hospitals, some kids definitely need chemical re-kajiggering.
Some psych meds allow people to live relatively normal lives, for the right patients.

For some it might be just enough to keep them from killing themselves.

For some, it might keep them from such a mental state such that they commit mass murder.

Fuck, why an elementary school?!? So tragic. So senseless.
We are truly living in a mental health crisis of epic proportions.

Yeah. And it's 200 dollars a bullet.

Taxed at 95%.

Money collected goes towards public schools and universities to educate for free.

Good shout.

Not all bad, I have seen them help aperson get control of their life again.

Have also seen a couple people apparently permanently rewire their brain for the worse.

Tricky though, I don't think they should be as widely prescribed...Sometimes the fix is a lifestyle change instead of a drug.

Because this has just become problem?

You've had to live with this since the 70s.
