    then this would never . . . .  No, that irrational garbage is left to the NRA and its idiot supporters. However, I am not happy with your post, either.

    Two things I object to, including using the term "Going Postal." Do you know how many thousands of hard working, diligent, honest, and sane people there are in the Post office? The actual number of them losing it and going crazy is lower than the general population. It may be convenient shorthand for you, but it is insulting to 546,000 employees that you tarnish with a nasty "crazy brush" unnecessarily. That's like suggesting that all inner city black teen males are drug using criminals, when in reality,  the rural white male population has higher drug usage rates.

    The second thing I object to is your "falling through the cracks" statement.

    How do you know? What history of this kid, his family, friends, prior events, warning signs, medications, diagnoses, potential child abuse, or illness do you have that the rest of the public does not?  

    How can you blithely state that he fell through the cracks?  You automatically indict the school, health workers, parents, friends, and others for negligence, for failing to stop him in advance, ignoring a longstanding problem, when we know absolutely none of those "facts" to be facts. There is insufficient information for you to be guessing with such broad strokes.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
