I am still in shock and despair over this terrible shooting.
I can't imagine why anyone would do this to these poor innocent children and their teachers.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and their relatives involved.
To the wider community I ask why such guns
should be freely available? I know in America
the gun lobby
is very strong, but surely there are enough people with common sense around to know that the statistics for fatal shootings like these, in America, is way higher than any other country. Surely something must change. It is too easy to pick up a gun to solve a problem if you have one available. I know the old argument that says people kill not guns, and that is true, but these people would be less likely to kill if the guns weren't available. How often does this lesson have to be reinforced before someone is strong enough to sort it out?
