Another Shooting! How Can We Stop This?

My heart is breaking for the victims of this senseless school shooting. How can this happen? What can be done to stop it from continuing to happen? Many talk about gun laws but is this really a solution? Do you truly believe that if someone wants to get a gun for the purpose of committing robbery/murder that they wouldn't be able to obtain one illegally? Should innocent people be expected to no longer have the right to protect themselves?

The way things are currently going should every school be required to have metal detectors to help prevent this from happening again? There has to be some sort of increased protection for our innocent children along with increased help for the mentally ill.

My heart is breaking for these families whose lives are forever changed. Their loss is unimaginable. Please remember to keep them in your prayers in the coming days, weeks and months. Hug your children and family members tonight and thank the Lord that you are still able to. Let this serve to remind each of us that no matter how difficult things may be, we are blessed to have another day with our loved ones.

i'm thousand miles away from where it happened. But my heart goes to all the victims. I cried when I heard the news and now, reading news articles about how the other kids, parents and teachers are coping with the loss of their precious friends/children/students, it just breaks my heart and definitely tears roll down like crazy. May they rest in peace.
