Sad but not surprising, which is even sadder I guess. This sort of thing is happening almost every day in the USA (of course not with the same number of deaths).

I don't know what you folks in the USA can do about this. On the one hand it is madness to allow virtually anyone to have a gun, but on the other hand there are so many guns out there that you can't realistically expect everyone to voluntarily hand them in or have them all confiscated. The ones that would be willing to give them up aren't the ones you have to worry about are they?

Yeah there are definitely problems with this here. It'd be great if people got rid of the guns and such, but those preaching that don't understand that it just isn't realistic.

While high capacity magazines are ridiculous, I find it more ridiculous that the guy was interviewed by the FBI for leanings toward ISIS three different times but he was still able to buy guns. This shouldn't happen, even if the interviews were inconclusive.

I guess the point I'd make is that there are no easy solutions to any of the issues that are apparent in this case or any of the issues tied to the violence here. I certainly don't have the solutions to the problem, and I haven't heard anyone who has come up with anything either.

This was insane. I reat about it yesterday and was shocked, still am. I mean one person did all of this insanity. I still think that it's insane how easy it is for people to get guns in the USA.

The biggest problem I think is the easy access of almost anyone to a gun in US, don't know why such people doing this or what may be the exact solution but one thing is for sure many more will be in danger in future if the system staying like the exiting one.

I have no answer to the gun issue either. I have wanted to flee this country at so many different points in my life due to the violence. It seems now everything is being fueled by pure hate now, too.

My heart is broken for all the young lives lost and after hearing some of the stories of terror coming from the survivors. Right now, I really have no words. Sad

It is really sad, isn't it? There are other countries where guns are common but they don't have the same problems as the USA. So it is deeper than just the availability though that obviously contributes greatly to the problem.

You're right that there is a lot of hatred going around hope. I really hope this thing doesn't encourage people to vote for Donald Trump and his tough talking BS that just fuels the fire. If that happens you had better head for Canada before he builds a wall to keep you all in!

This is a tragedy....very sorrowful... One and only starting point to fix this serious and continuous danger is the gun control.

Long before, I served my millitary duty for 2 years assigned in US Army. I was trained and worked with them in the same way.

I do know about M16A2, M249, etc. And I much liked firing guns in the regular traing in the wideopen range.

But, it is unimaginable that such weapons and bullets are being sold to civillians... And recently on TV, I saw the children in school simulating the evacuation from this kind of terror or shooting, covering themselves with the Bullet-proof blanket or backpacks. This situation is a deep deep cut in my heart.

You're right coolsongss, it is disgusting that kids even have to be worried about or trained to deal with this sort of thing.

There is obviously something very wrong with the sickos who commit these crimes, but to me there is also something wrong with the politicians who refuse to do anything about it. As I said above its not going to be easy to solve but it appears to me that many are not even trying, or are in fact actively trying to prevent anything being done.

Coolsongs, as a teacher, I have to practice such "lock down" drills with school children, and it breaks my heart. Some are very afraid of even the practice drills, and I try to explain to them it is like the tornado: the chances are slim that this will happen, but just in case, we would rather be prepared than not. But even I get a creepy feeling when I have to lock all the doors and sit in the dark corner, away from all windows, with the students, as those who are conducting the drills come to our doors and try the doors to try to get in. It does make me sad that we have to do this.

It's sad really, the kids don't deserve to even think about that but I guess you're right Hope they would rather be prepared.

It is a real problem how to limit getting guns. In other countries to get the gun is to be allowed by the psychiatrist

In my country I am pretty sure that you can only get a gun if you are a policeman. You can get a different kind of gun (one that is basiaclly harmless, not with real bullets- don't remember how it's called) but that's it. Thank goodness for that.
