Nevada School Shooting
« on: October 22, 2013, 07:24:50 AM »
A boy picked up his parents' hand gun, went to school, killed a teacher, wounded two students and then shot himself. Isn't it time that some action was taken to reduce the chances of this sort of thing happening again or is the US citizen now conditioned to expect gun violence as the norm?

She and her mother, Tabatha, said they thought the shooter had been bullied in the past.

Another factor to take care off: the bullying that's going on in schoolyards - and even forums of adults, speaking of the old Koratfarang forum etc.

It's too easy to buy guns and I have never read any suggestion that they have to be locked away securely.

In the JK, few types of gun can be bought legally. Applicants for licenses are subject to a police check, including a home visit to view the secure gun cabinet and the separate place where ammunition is stored. The application goes to a magistrate who takes due note of the police recommendation. In the US, there are too many accidental deaths caused when kids find the parents' unsecured loaded gun. This latest killing spree involves a parents' gun, just like the Sandy Hook massacre.
