This is just another reason for strong gun control. Let's watch and see that the perpetrator had a legally obtained firearm. I'm almost willing to bet.

I know I'm gonna be unpopular for saying this-but please for the love of God,can folks just leave off the "they're coming for our guns" mentality even once? People are dead.Children are dead.This is a hideous tragedy.Must your first concern be that this is about your precious guns? Spare a thought for the loved ones of the deceased first,at least.a reply to: bhliberal

There are enough gun control laws on the books as it is. Enforcement is the main issue. Last time I checked murder was still illegal, but criminals keep on killing, laws mean nothing to the criminally insane.
Thoughts and prayers for the families and loved ones of the victims.
