Some people looks for words of encouragement. Some of us prefer actions.
Those who do not truly feel the sting of today's events prefer no words of condolence. Those who do feel that sting... do they matter?
There are parents right now absolutely heartbroken... their very reason for living has been yanked away with no notice and no reason. Do you know how that feels? I don't, thank God Himself!, but I can try to imagine. Can you? Some of these souls need God's grace and peace right now, more than the very air they breathe. Will you deny them that?

In an interview, a student said: "everyone predicted this."
...and nothing done about it? FFS. Seems that it's an all too common issue in these cases. Recipe for more Police State? Never let a good crisis, or an impending one, go to waste.

I just ran across a forum called incels.me that is praising this dude right now.
Best I can tell they're a bunch of self-proclaimed ugly people that have been bullied their whole lives and are blaming society of "chads" and " stacies" for these acts.
It's utterly disgusting and I didn't realize there were actually that many people that think in such a way.

I see absolutely no reason to have these semi-automatic weapons be available. I never get a clear response when I ask people this. They usually only say "it's our right to acquire guns". Ok, neat, you can have a hand gun! A rifle! Just as cool, right? These semi's are the weapon of choice for mass murders. If you get rid of them, it doesnt stop shootings. I know this. But that person can go in with a hand gun, but wont be able to kill as many people. If there's a scenario where people have to die and theres no ways around it, id rather less died than more, wouldnt you? Next, they will claim if you ban them they will just go through the black market. True. Although, I do not thinks everybody will have access to it. So that would drop mass shootings from what they are now, to a much lower number. Sure, it still could happen, but LESS would happen. I cannot fathom how somebody could not think of this as clearly as I am.
