    What then? Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. Thats what.

    ENFORCE THE LAW AND THE PROBLEMS WILL STOP.

    No way these poor boys deserve a 2nd chance and maybe 5 more after that. Lets feed them, house them, get them a degree then tell them it's their mommy's fault for not buying them that big screen TV for Christmas back in 2005

    They are saying its gang related. 2 thugs illegally carrying shoot it out.

    Were both shooters law abiding citizens legal to own firearms? Or were they the kind of folks that would have ignored any law we have?

    How exactly would an assault weapons ban and 10 round mag limit have stopped this school shooting?

    The only reason it's a story is because it happened at a school. As was said earlier, it happens everyday in major cities all over the country. Unfortunately for many, reality is what they see in the mainstream media.

    What I was thinking. Probably stolen guns.

    I think they all though it was a mass shooting and jumped at the chance.
    There banners at the bottom still read like it was because the failed on this one. They will now most likely slowly push it off.

    Since guns were taken to a "gun free zone" I'm guessing the shooters were not law abiding citizens.

    Yahoo had a big breaking news title on their webpage about this shooting.

    Now, nothing.

    Not surprising, just the usual media rush to get the first headline out and sell the most air time.

    I know we're on the same team regarding gun control, but sometimes mommy and daddy still argue so here goes:

    Enforcing laws doesn't stop crimes/problems. Since the dawn of humanity we have never been able to write or enforce a law that would prevent crime.

    Every human on this planet knows murder and other violent crime is illegal. Swift, severe punishment/enforcement may reduce the murder rate but it will not "stop" murder. There will always be those whose hearts are so hardened that laws won't affect them.

    So, we enforce laws to reduce or discourage crime, not to stop it. If someone wants to commit a crime, especially a premeditated crime, we can't stop it. Laws don't matter. At that point only an armed citizen can stop the criminal, hopefully before too much damage is done.

    They are now reporting that the shooters were rival gang members whose argument escalated. SO they were most likely not CHL holders.

    Yes, the area around there is called Greenspoint but the locals call it Gunspoint. Once I learned the address of the school I had a good idea that it was just thugs shooting at each other.

    I once took a CAD class from this school system and about 60% of the student population are there because they are in a "training" program that makes them eligible for government assistance. This doesn't surprise me the least bit.
