4 and the month isn't over  
What a start to 2013. We're up to FOUR shootings at school campuses already. The first month of the year is not over. Today's shooting seems to be a LITTLE different from the typical let's just shoot at anyone and everyone. For example one of the injured is someone who actually had a heart attack. Also there appear to have been two people shooting at each other and the people injured were just "caught in the cross fire". Too bad, so sad for them, eh?

I've read some of the comments, which include people who claim to have been on the campus.

Thing to note, I suppose -

There were armed guards on campus, didn't matter.
Texas is a state with conceal carry, but you're not supposed to carry on campuses.

When do we admit that we have a problem in this country? I know "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Blah blah blah. But people seem to think that the way to solve their issues with other people is to pull the trigger. And no, they don't grab for a fork or some other ridiculous "They could easily kill someone with ________" so should we ban _______. If they did go on a rampage with a fork, maybe people wouldn't be terrorized... it'd be like a typical day on Venice Beach here or something.

My usual response to 'You could just as easily kill people with a car, or a knife, or a fork' is 'Well, then what do you need an automatic weapon for? Use a car, or a knife, or a fork.'

Ha! The average person is probably more likely to have any of those things handy if attacked anyway. Seriously, these people talk like they walk around 24/7 with a gun in their hand ready - like literally always ready. So, what -- when they're in the shower, bathroom, cooking dinner, or whatever they have their AK47 right there for protection? Sorry, I don't want to live that life
