You’ve read this editorial before.

It’s been more than 20 years since more than a dozen people were killed in Columbine High School in Columbine, Colo., by two shooters bent on nothing more than destruction.

Government control of guns is a no go. Start by punishing anyone using a gun to commit any crime. Profile see New York with Rudy. Gun owner negligence punished as a conspirator. SRO's in every school in spite of Randall, Wexton, Briskman... Parents need to raise their children and quit relying on the schools and government and monitor kids social media for goodness sake. Joey needs to bring Corn Pop and friends to take any firearms. Until the draft age is raised to 21 years old then you cannot limit purchases of guns from 18 to 21 years of age. Mentel health is huge compared to 20 years ago cause democrats found it to be another sinkhole excuse to spend more taxpayer dollars that they control on.


Why are these mass shootings happening? Does a kid see all these guns lying around and think "gee, I think I'll take one of these guns and go shoot up a school?" Find out what is causing people to decide to kill others. Then solve that problem. Oh, and take a look at the profile of the shooters. Almost all grow up without a father in the home. Gosh, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Those pushing gun legislation can never answer the Chicago question. Why do the states with the most restrictive gun laws have the most gun crimes? It ain't the guns folks.
