    Since the start of 2018 (as of 2/1/18) http://www.king5.com/article/news/12.../281-511306237

    I guess these 2 would be considered 'mass'

    Feb. 1: Salvador B. Castro Middle School in Los Angeles, California

    A female student opened fire striking a 15-year-old boy in the head and a 15-year-old girl in the wrist. Three others, ranging in age from 11 to 30, suffered minor cuts and scrapes.

    Jan. 23: Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky

    A 16-year-old boy opened fired on campus, killing two and injuring 18 others.

    Pretty insane to think we average nearly a school shooting per week.

    And you wonder why a lot of parents are homeschooling their children. I have a young child in school and he has had about 4-5 classmates in the last year become homeschooled. I spoke with two of the parents and they sighted episodes as this as one of the reasons. It's very unfortunate. My child does not go house to house to Trick or Treat like I used to. Can't even walk home anymore.

    Hope I don't sound hypocritical because of my avatar. I don't want to offend anyone here on such a sensitive subject. Also thank you for the update resox12 and rhino17.

    You really worry about your kids. If it can happen in Fla, Sandy Hook, Columbine, etc. It could happen anywhere and it does. It is about trying to protect our kids and innocent people who are just minding their own business. Thoughts and prayers.

    As others said, people suck and Florida sucks.

    Why anybody is allowed to carry an assault rifle is beyond me.

    It's Amurica.
    **** yeah

    I mean hey, we can start a militia with our automatic weapons. And fight the tanks and plaines and drones and choppers and...

    And we can hunt with them. Because we have terrible aim and no skill so it's easier to kill something when you can use an automatic.

    But the truthful issue is that like the dude in Vegas, it's irrelevant. If someone wants to convert a weapon, they can




    You see what you want to see and you hear what you want to hear.
