    I joined the March for our Lives event in San Francisco back in March, and I swear those kids gave me hope that perhaps the US wasn't entirely ****ed.

    But since then, everything got real quite again, as it always does. And then this happens.

    Still, the guns were legally owned and illegally obtained by the shooter. No doubt the dad is the real villain here for not better securing his firearms

    If only the teachers...

    I feel sorry for the minority who can see that banning guns would make them all safer. I suppose you would have to live there to understand the reasons, but from the outside looking in itís ****in madness that they use arguments like if everyone had guns this wouldnít happen.

    Exactly. Some people you just can't change the mind set of. The constitution is clearly more important than people's lives sadly.

    It really doesn't get much worse than children being murdered in their classroom yet even that won't make some people see sense so what chance do you have really.

    They have genuine, and I mean genuine, fears that the govt may oppress them if their guns are taken from them. My uncle lives over there and he says thatís always an argument they use.
    Itís a crazy innate fear that they have over there of the government. Itís mental truly.

    Headline in today's Daily News in the US as discussed by Simon Scharma is a stark front page using the Royal Wedding for context.

    There is going to be an entire generation of people who's memory of high school was fearing that something like this is going to happen to your school, during their time there.

    These people will all be able to vote soon.

    The tide will turn.

    Arming more teachers could help tackle gunmen targeting students if there were "four to five guns to one", a senior Texan official has said.
