I pictured blood and mayhem. That is Not the truth. While even one mass shooting is too much, ANY event near a school with a gun, was counted as a "school shooting"
Please read the link. It tells exactly what happened in each incidence considered to make the headlines as a "school shooting ." We have enough real problems, and could really do without the misrepresentation that alarms us further. "18 school shootings in 2018" was a real stretch.
I reflected on how pro gun ku posters would turn a blind eye to the increase in gun violence since open carry was passed. I thought..I said this sort of thing would happen and the ridicule was all that came back.
Now the evidence is overwhelming and those same KU posters have no problem denying the correlation. Texas needs to consider a buy back program for guns.
All I'm saying is, this is bad enough, we don't need to lie and make up things to get our attention or manipulate us. That's not the media's job.
And, consider THIS: when you blow stuff out of proportion, and they do, 24/7, (even with weather reports lol) are you not lighting a fire under these sick people who do this to get attention?? They do it for that reason as well. This Cruz kid said on social media, he wanted to be a professional school shooter. Attention. We need to re-think that we are giving it to them and why.
Would there be all these shootings if we had never heard of the first ones?? Food for thought.
Time to realize this issue is not a single issue problem. Using a Gun is the end result of many actions that take place first. Why did his guardians allow a mentally ill kid to have a gun? Why didn?t the FBI act on several tips that this kid might be a problem? What was he doing and feeding his brain?? Did anyone know about his social media posts close to him? Then there?s the media and their exploitation of these events. And yes there?s guns, after all the rest happened first.
That's another thing I'd change. No one under 21 should be able to buy a gun. They let kids drive at 16 too, and they have 3X the accidents. Sounds like a great idea! We have no guts in this country to make anyone unhappy even when it makes sense, even when we know better.
You all just need to admit that you don?t really care about the shootings, and that you?re just trying to stick it to your political adversaries....you just feign concern until the news fades and then repeat the process next time.
Spare me your lectures on ?you don?t know what I?m thinking.? It?s obvious.
You can?t deny that it?s become simply fodder for arguing on the internet...something will come up in a couple days that will change the focus again and we can all pretend like that matters for a while...ad nauseum

Right. If a person has not violated the law, then law enforcement can do nothing. The only thing that can happen is law enforcement can place a 72 hour mental patient (Texas) hold on someone if they are a danger to themselves or others.
Also, a persons mental health record is not searchable by law enforcement (HIPPA).
