    just trying to put words in my keyboard?

    I never said we can't do anything. I said, and I repeat, banning guns won't solve this problem.

    Solving this problem means making real changes to our approaches, in this country, to schools, for a start, and to mental health needs for another step, and to how we treat criminals as well.

     We need to stop creating, operating, relying on and feeling good about big warehouses full of kids and then advertising to the universe that nobody present in that warehouse or its immediate surroundings is armed or otherwise enabled to defend those children, or their teachers / administrators / nurses / visitors.

    We need to stop ignoring warning signs and letting "troubled individuals" (21st century speak for enraged lunatics, but I digress) slip through the cracks.

    We need to stop celebrating, in some macabre way, the achievements of mass murderers. They are, first and foremost, criminals. They deserve neither notoriety nor copycats.
