Death from a broken heart. How sad!

RIP

10 ( +11 / -1 )

That’s 22 dead, directly and indirectly, at the hands of a gun-toting psychopath. Since nothing is going to change regarding guns in America, let’s all settle down and wait for the next one, shall we?

What are we doing to our children. We're all connected and all lives are impacted by these preventable deaths. Not only people in USA, we, all of us have to stand together for a safer world for children

No words can describe losing a family member in such circumstance s. My thoughts are with his children losing 2 parents days apart.

Days before this, the guy said he wanted to shoot up a school to several people on Instagram. As this has happened before in other shootings worldwide, why did no one do anything then?

Another popular loser on Twitter investigated one of the fathers of the victims. He found out that he supported Kyle Rittenhouse so called the murder of his child karma.

This is the sick society we live in folks and the toxicity of social media.

Where did it take the police so long to enter the building?

Why wait to protect children in a school?

The police are trained to ‘protect and serve’ - an inquiry has to be held to explain this negligence…

A more appropriate question would be why is the USA the only place that has this happen regularly, why does the USA have a gun massacre (3 or more victims) on average every 60 days when no guns Japan has had fewer than 20 massacres of all forms ( bombs, cars, knives, fire, et .. ) since 1952.

So the real question is why does the police in the USA even have to respond to shootings in schools.

This just gets sadder every day. :(

What would the appropriate amount of time have been? And how much time elapsed between them being prepared to enter, and their actually entering? I'm assuming it must be an egregious amount of time based on your post, but I haven't actually seen this number posted anywhere. How many minutes did they wait between being prepared, and entering the building?

Or are you suggesting they should have run in guns blazing without preparation?

Rest In Peace, lovers. I hope you’re holding hands right now.

I don't think you know what that word means.

painkiller,

Yes.

Thank you. So why are regulations like that basically impossible to enact at a federal level? What are the objections if "guns don't kill people, people kill people?"

painkiller,

Yes. I blame the shooter first.

Do you support expanded background checks (and making it compulsory for all states to supply information to federal databases, including mental health history), licensing and training requirements, red flag laws? They are all regulations that target people, not weapons.

Japan is not a good comparison, as firearms have basically been illegal there since right after the war.

What? It's a great comparison. The country in which guns have been heavily restricted for decades sees very little gun violence, and the country in which access to almost any kind of firearm is easy and immediate has some of the highest rates of gun homicide in the world. Unless you mean it's not a good comparison because it completely destroys your point.

The alleged shooter, Salvador Ramos, was inside the Robb Elementary School classroom in Uvalde for more than an hour before he was killed in a shootout, authorities said Thursday

Strangerland,

According to none other than Fox news;

Victor Escalon, Texas Department of Public Safety regional director for South Texas said Thursday that Salvador Ramos, the alleged school shooter, was inside for one hour before being shot and killed. Ramos allegedly killed 19 students and two teachers during the shooting on Tuesday.

They were taking fire it seems, and waited for tactical teams to arrive.

Then compare to Canada, UK, Australia, etc ...

79% of all murders in the USA are by guns compared to Canada 32%, Australia 13%, UK 4%

Murder rate in the USA 4.9 per 100k Canada, UK, Australia all below 2 per 100k.

So simple conclusion is if 79% of all murders in the are by guns, eliminating the easy access and ownership of guns would cut murders by at least 50% if not more.

You can't drive by knife attack and killing 19 little children with a knife while the teachers are there is highly improbable.

Nom,he payed about 2000 dollar for this gun, online but had to have it shipped to dealer in Ulvade, where he picked it up,the best source of guns like this are gun dealers,they routinely rob of their gun and end up on the streets,they have no liability for not securing their guns Google Texas Gun Store Theft

So sad to hear and read this news but still, America is a great nation! They should police the world.

Clearly a hate crime. Salvador Ramos didn't like Latinos.
