Holy crap, it feels like school shooting is happening every other week.

I have a younger brother still in elementary school. All this crap just makes me sick. The government really have to get involved and do something about this. I feel kids arent getting enough emotional support or help. Teenage years can be rough its a emotional time. This is becoming a trend.

Yeah something has to be done. I'm not going to go on a spiel that will certainly be cross the forum rules, but stuff like this has to stop.

Wow. Just absolutely terrible. School definitely puts stress on young people and its terrible when it boils over to stuff like this.

Sad story. One of the major issues is that kids are no longer talking to their parents, they can no longer confide in their parents.

There is one quite simple way to curb incidents like this, but it is not going to run well here. Nor do I think it would have any chance of working in the US.

I highly doubt you're thinking what I'm thinking, but I think that our ideas are aiming to achieve the same basic goal.

This seems more like a suicide than a shooting. Oh he didn't die, so suicide attempt more than a shooting.

Just make it mandatory for all schools to have a metal detector at the door

I think that I am on the same tangent as you guys as well.

The government getting involved isn't going to help. The more I see the more I believe that the less government the better. It reaches too far as it is, no need to add more. It starts at home. Support and talking is extremely important. As great as technology is, I will be the first one to say that it has made my generation much more socially awkward and introverted and that's not a good thing.

In before lock?


Just seems any topic that has political undertones is not allowed, and the OP certainly does.




If I may say so, the ability for adults to attain weapons in an easier fashion will always spread to youth who may not fully understand all the consequences.

This is becoming too political IMO. Probably best that this thread is locked before it escalates.

I don't think being introverted is at all a bad thing. I think the lack of mental toughness is a bad thing.

Call me callous but I don't feel pity or sympathy for people who do things like that. We all make choices in life. If your choice is to end your life, go ahead. I'm not going to feel sorry for you.(except in very extreme circumstances)
