Having read some of the comments of people with regard to the school shooting - it is scary to think that some would like nothing better than for authorities to raid homes and take guns.
So many sheep in this world and so few sheepdogs. If there were more sheepdogs there would likely be much less tragedy. The denial I hear from some people is mind-boggling at times.
I'm not sure what the answer is to curbing these incidents but imposing gun control on those who may legally purchase, own and carry is the wrong approach. Banning certain weapons does nothing but cripple the honest citizen - those permitted by law and constitution to own weapons. If some had their way, the only people left with weapons would be thugs. This can not happen.
It's an old cliche' but it holds so much truth - If guns kills people, than pencils misspell words.
