O hai, I was wondering if this thread was gonna come up today or not. Woo. Personally, I want to find out how the shooter got into the school. AFAIK guns are generally banned at all public schools, except for police officers carrying openly, and at that particular school, it's locked up completely during classroom hours. It sounds like they had decent security in place to keep strangers from getting in, so how the hell did this happen? Also, ditto to the fuck you's to parents letting kids get interviewed and to the media outlets interviewing them. Finally, re: medical/mental screenings for gun ownership, what's the likelihood that people will be more averse to seeking care or treatment if it means there's a possibility that they will not be able to obtain firearms? (Or maybe get what firearms they already own taken away?) I'm just thinking of one of those "unintended consequences" type scenarios, though I imagine the number of people this would happen to would be relatively low, given the right social programs.
