That was good. One thing I can't understand is how a mother with a child who had mental and social issues would keep firearms in the same house and let that child play violent video games. She's as much to blame as he was.

Well written.  There is a large segment of the educated elite who simply fail to understand that there are bad people out there who truely do not understand anything other than superior force.  This elite group of educated liberals fears any use of arms by anyone, for any reason, and thinks it not necessary.  Talk your way out, run away, buy better locks, make more rules for the behavior of others even though bad guys dont follow rules, hide, stick your head in the sand -TOTAL DENIAL of REALITY. 
Clinton sustains concussion; Benghazi testimony postponed --- They could have sent in Marines to rescue these people - a reasonable armed response to an unreasonable armed threat.
  The Simple Truth : if some bad person comes armed intending to hurt other people the only effective response is to stop them by use of deadly force, as quickly as possible, thereby saving as many innocent lives as possible.  If talking to armed terrorist and armed psychopaths was at all effective the next time we had a war we would send the Peace Corp and the Marines could have the day off.
Just like at Ft. Hood one trained armed person can make the difference.
 
We should also talk about PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY -- If you know someone in your home has mental issues or is under emotional distress --YOU -- need to secure your weapons, just like you would with a 3 yr old.  You need to take into account who you live with if you have teenagers who come home at odd hours and bring friends with them you best let the dog decide if they belong there.  When you are not home your weapons should be secured or with you, not left laying around for burglars. When you make the choice to own a weapon you need to devote the time and effort to be proficient with it because there is very little that is more irresponsible than shooting someone you did not intend to shoot. When you decide that you will carry a firearm you need to already have your mind made up regarding when and how it may be used, based on the laws of your state. It is quite reasonable to shoot an armed felon who is a threat right now to your life or to the life of an innocent third person - there ends the list of it being OK.  Once the threat is over you can NOT shoot them for what they did it is up to the judge to decide their fate not you.  For a shooting to be justified the threat must be imminent, the danger - right now - and the period of time when its your life or theirs is a very short time where you are the quick or the dead.   Carrying a firearm is a lifetime commitment to avoiding trouble.

Very good read.
The problem with our feel good politicians, is they create feel good legislation that makes the like minded voter feel safe or good about themselves. When in fact they never did their research to find an actual solution to the problem. I'm affraid the same is going to happen again, and with the same results. Instead of looking at what's not working and changing legislation, they will only double down and make it worse (but that's what my liberal uninformed supporters want), and it will happen again. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, isn't this a sign of inanity? Maybe it's the human nature thing that you deny that you were wrong. Put a bunch of politicians in a room worried about their re-election and it is almost impossible to get them to repeal the worst law ever written (took them over 10 years to repeal prohibition and that was a no brainer).
The facts are simple (the politics are not), Where law abiding citizens have reasonable (ok easy) access to arms, the crime rate is low (nobody wants to risk getting shot), where it is difficult for the law abiding citizen to have access to arms, the crime rate is high (easy targets, and low risk).
The Federal law mandating gun free schools needs to be REPEALED, and let the local or State Authority determine how school security should be handled, and not a one solution for every situation law.

Parents can start making a difference today. Refuse to let their kids have the death cames, or watch 80% of the trash on tv and restructure their priorities to give their kids the time and attention they need. No it won't be easy but, until its done don't expect much to change. Our society is so deep in the dark concerning whats right and whats evil its sickening. But if I start and you start and you encourage a friend to. Then God will see your efforts and we will see this thing change.
If you contact someone in politics insist that they confess their faith to you. That way you get them accustom and more bold to doing so. And you will find out if they even have the faith. Then if they don't you know how to pray for them. These people are blindly following the plan of satan. They have no clue where they are headed. When we humble ourselves and give God proper reverence then we will have the wisdom and help from God to stop this stupidity!!
