HI Blanka~ I think that is not a matter alone of building stronger community awareness or higher fortresses around our playgrounds and schools but more an issue of "let's figure out what is at the core root" of these mass shooters amidst us. They all have similar resumes; 22-26yrs old, bright, very bright, not well liked in school, few friends and I believe, if any of them were alive and we could talk to them, we would learn that they had all been bullyied throughout thier public school life. These are all young men who felt

I lost a son five years ago. It is something that gets better with time but can also be worse. He is still with me in spirit but not by my side. I know that people can say that if gun laws were stronger this wouldent have happened. But more laws will help not a thing. We need to teach in the home and watch for the signs at home as parents we do not want to believe that our kids have problems. We look over there problems and only look at ours. I have a very big family that was raised around...

I have a very big family that was raised around guns and tought to respect them. But kids should not ever be able to get into a gun safe

powerless against the pain they endured while in school and no one, not the principal, the school psychologist, the teachers or the kids stood up for them, sounding familiar? With the current guns laws, a person like this grows up to commit crimes like we are seeing in our communites now on a monthly basis. If we do not get this bullying under control, as a nation, I believe we can expect to see more of the same that we as a nation witnessed this past Friday. It is our...

If we do not get this bullying under control, as a nation, I believe we can expect to see more of the same that we as a nation witnessed this past Friday. It is our responsibily as a nation to delve into the why's - why is this happening before it is too late.
We need stronger gun laws and community efforts to help do away with bullying in our school systems which would entail a mass education strategy to be rolled out via the Dept of Education - but we must begin - by asking ourselves as a nation How many ? How long? Waiting until the next 22-26yr old smart, friendless, bullied in school young man commits another mass murder just isn't good enough.

First of all let me offer my prayers to all the families affected by this horrible tragedy, for our country, and for our leaders who have to enact a solution. Im a Veteran and the father of 3 school aged children. Like most Vets I know somthing about security. I would like to see a bill introduced that would model the Air Marshall program for our schools. It would consist of a select, squad sized group of background checked, psychologically tested, trained and armed school officials, to...

First of all let me offer my prayers to all the families affected by this horrible tragedy, for our country, and for our leaders who have to enact a solution. Im a Veteran and the father of 3 school aged children. Like most Vets I know somthing about security. I would like to see a bill introduced that would model the Air Marshall program for our schools. It would consist of a select, squad sized group of background checked, psychologically tested, trained and armed school officials, to serve in secret to the public allowing them not to be targeted. Our citizens are our countries greatest resource dating back to the american revolution. Now is a time to act and protect our children and our inalienable constitutional rights. It can be done. Lets get it done America!

I used to live in the UK, I was Born and Bred there. But because the Country has gone to Pot, I left, and now live in the Philippines, the People here are very Family Orientated and children are very safe, even so every School has armed Security Guards, if you want your Children to be safe, tell the Authorities what you want, not what they want, their your Children, if the School is not Protected, keep your Children at home until they do something about security.

Blanka, you are very good writer. I would like to see you expand your ideas. You ended your story too soon. Be expansive because you have a lot to say and you only covered the "rape" on women ( which I totally ahree with).

Be strong
