We have to start treating each other like human beings and start connecting with one another on an emotional level.
Thats the only way we can stop these events from happening.

But blah blah blah gun rights! Blah Muricah!
I'm sure both sides are ready at each other, I know where I stand in my mind but all that pales into nothing when you have an ongoing tragedy on your hands. Dissection and analysis should occur in due course, but for now my thoughts are for those in the wrong place at the wrong time. I cannot imagine how I would feel as a parent if a gunman showed up at my childs school, the anguish would be like nothing on earth. Being told to stay away, when a child is in direct harms way? My heart goes out to them.
