    I just heard there was another school shooting at the high school in Taft California. Shooter used a 12 gauge shot gun. Two injured, one serious and one minor. The teacher confronted the shooter and talked him into putting down the gun. Sounds like a true hero to me. This will be more ammo for the anti gun idiots. My thoughts and prayers to the families.

    The stupid libs are prolly gonna call for a ban on 12 ga shotguns. Its funny the BLUE states are where the violence happens most of the time.

    Not to downplay this cowardess act but thank goodness nobody was killed. I pray for the families and victims. Early reports say a very brave teacher defused the situation or it may have been much worse.

    If these shootings continue it is going to display loud and clear that guns aren't the problem. It's easy to see something like Sandy Hook and cry guns, but when the problem continues it forces people to look at the people part of the problem.

    Where this happened in Taft is about 30 miles from where I live in Bakersfield. Our local news reported this morning that the 16 year old shooter had been picked on and was busted with a hit list about a year ago. They should have not let this kid back in school after the first time he was busted but they will still make it out to be the guns fault some how.

    Many years of dem instituted "no corporal punishment", and behavioral drugs to correct, make the kids without morals and uncontrollable.

    You spank your kid, YOU go to jail!

    The kids see no corrective action, and no penalty for bad behavior during their upbringing.

    And gun free zones?

    Dems are responsible for all bad happenings.

    It is too bad it happened and glad there were no deaths

    I was listening TV this morning and the talking heads were talking about the gun crime being blamed on video violence, they said little could be done to stop it because of the first amendment, and the next breath out of their warped heads was how the need to restrict guns

    The no minds can't get it all the amendments were put in the bill or rights for a reason, you can't pick and choose which ones you want to keep

    "If these shootings continue it is going to display loud and clear that guns aren't the problem."

    Lets see the first ten years of this century there were 28 school shooting in the US. That averages to a rate of 2.8 per year. How many will it take before the libs understand that the guns aren't the problem????? What will it take 10 a year, 15 a year you all should realize that the libs are never going to understand that guns aren't the problem.

    They will just claim that the gun problem is just getting worse. The interesting part is in the last ten year of the last century there were 49 school shooting. Seems as though the rate of these shooting is getting less not more. Or is it that the last ten of the last century didn't have Obama. As the link above seems to show eliminating guns is all part of the Messiah's plan and has been since he has been in office. Another lie that he told the voters before he was elected and his running mate swore to.

    "Where did he get the gun from?"

    Why would that make a difference???? It doesn't seem to matter where all the ones that have gone before him got the gun/guns they used.

    Maybe if that was the focus, there would not be constant talk of complete bans, and confiscation!

    Did you bother to read what is in the link in my first post. If you had you just might see that your president has been planning this since he was elected the first time.

    Now that he has been elected the second time he is ececuting his plan by any means necessary he and Biden are talking Excutive Order. You are not on the right track that is becoming obvious.

    "Where did he get the gun from?"

    Sounds like he took his brothers gun, a pump 12 ga.

    I guess the kid was apologizing like hell for picking on him when he was shot. Isn't it strange how a persons attitude changes when the tide turns on them.

    Again, why wasn't it locked up? Every shooting incident has that one thing in common. Either they should not have had access to guns because they where known to be mentally unstable, or they where under age to posses a gun without adult supervision.

    Why wasn't the bully locked up so the rest of the class could study with out fear of being picked on?

    Sounded like the mentally unstable one was the bully and someone just got tired of his bullshit!!! The news clip showed the bully being carried of on the stretcher. He happened to be a good sized kid who apparently liked to throw his weight around.

    You can argue the point both ways!!!

    Things like this shouldn't happen but the cause isn't always as apparent as first thought.
