Not trying to down-play ANY shooting - unfortunately people in this country are shot or shot at on a daily basis (sic. gangland violence, drive-bys, etc.). But now that some retard got his hands on mommy's guns, killed her and a bunch of innocent kids before offing himself (if that's indeed how it even went down) bringing gun-control politics to a near hysteria. The MSM is now gonna brow-beat us with every little incident where two or more fatalities are involved. TPTB own the MSM and are gonna milk every little incident until the masses will blindly say "no more guns". I believe we need stricter regulations with annual license renewals and mental evaluations. But not outright banning.

3 people and a few cops.. no big deal to me. In New Orleans this happens almost every weekend. This is commonplace in many places. I can't see this seriously being a catalyst for the gun reform movement.
I wonder how long the root causes of these incidents are going to be ignored
