Tell me if I am wrong, but aren’t either all or almost all the school shooters ex-students of the school they later went on to shoot up??


If so.....


Then wouldn’t that be the common thread that is kinda being ignored.

It seems like a big deal that it is not some “intruder” that comes out of the blue randomly.

It is not some unpredictable Islamic terrorist or white suprematist..


The people at the school of the next school shooting are sitting in class with the perp RIGHT NOW..


Adding more security might not help if it is a student.. he might be able to get closer than a stranger would, but then again maybe increased security would notice the problem kids and maybe intervene..

Reguardless, I think this is the only way we have to identify the killer BEFORE he dies any killing.

Sure some of the other proposed methods would help accidental and other shootings, but I don’t think much helps with school shootings.

THE ONLY THING THAT WILL STOP SCHOOL SHOOTINGS IS EARLY IDENTIFICATION... and we already know what school they will come from..

Dig deeper. Ask yourself WHY these former students return with anger and hatred in their mind.

Could it be that the students were part of the cause of that persons torment?
Could it be the school teachers and administrators that did nothing to stop that torment?
Could it be the police and justice system failed to also recognize this torment?

Get to the root, and you get to the solution. And that root is far and away before any weapon was purchased.

They were Americans, who found guns to carry out their plans, easier than I find a matching pair of socks in the morning.

As unpopular as this is I think it likely goes back to a fraudian sexual rejection..


We are sexual creatures , made to be sexual, and when every primal instinct someone has says to copulate, and none of your peers would ever touch you..

The rejection and frustration mounts and explodes..

I’m not saying the females that age owe males anything, just that it is what it is..

Cory Baadsgaard (Wahluke High School shooting, 2001) – took a high powered rifle into his third-period English class at Wahluke High School in Mattawa, Washington, herding his classmates and teacher into a corner and holding them hostage for 45 minutes on April 10, 2001. Fortunately, no one was injured as the school’s principal was able to convince Baadsgaard to give up his gun. The 16-year-old had recently switched to the new antidepressant Effexor, amping up his dosage from 40 milligrams to 300. Baadsgaard, who insists he has no memory of the event, spent 14 months in a juvenile detention center where he wrote letters of apology to those involved claiming he never wished to hurt anyone.

Rejection is a normal part of life, mofos learn to cope. imo. droogs play a larger part n this crap, since Columbine they've been there.

Hell probably before, its just Columbine brought it to everyone's attention.

And if you are taught since birth that you are special. You are protected from failure. You can do no wrong. The longer that lasts, the more dangerous it will be when true failure/rejection/etc... occurs. These kids have no clue how to deal with adversity from a young age. No concept that life can be tough, it can be cruel. They lack the skills and tools to deal with this stuff because of .................. feelings. You can't hurt their fragile feelings today.

What has changed in the last 30 years (when these incidents became more common)? One thing is this socialistic approach to child rearing. Where there are no winners or losers. Where everyone is special.

Well, that is a fantasy...and when real life hits them between the eyes, they cannot handle it and snap.

The ones the MSM tells you about.

Anyone ever heard of the Bailey, CO school shooting in 2006? Probably not.

A 53 year old man sexually assaulted 6 girls at gunpoint after storming the classroom, eventually killing one girl and himself (RIP Emily Keyes)

Think bigger. Why do these people go to schools to carry out their atrocities? Churches?


The term easy target comes to mind.

But that is not at the root. That is merely a conducive environment for the rage and anger toward that particular group of people.

I personally think it's more to do with mental issues, rather than targets.

Won't disagree but lets say we take away the easy targets. What's next? The pool thins while the risk rises greatly.

I'm fully aware that this is a cultural problem and that's where the discussion needs to be. However I'm pessimistic from the outcome of solutions given the current political climate.

See my previous post. I don't disagree.

I'm simply talking immediate perhaps even temporary solutions.

I would support a measure that required a mental evaluation as part of a background check for everyone to purchase their first gun.

I'm not convinced that would work nor am I convinced that it is constitutionally congruent.

Then all the shooter need to is wait for them to either be entering the school in the morning (all the buses and cars and people (lots of people) or when they are let out of school. Or, like this recent shooter, pull a fire alarm to get them to come out (just waiting for them to be outside for the fire (ducks in a row).

The root of the hate festered long before that moment arrived.
