This scumbag kills himself to avoid the punishment from the justice system. What a coward! -to kill school children, the school principal, and his own parents and to get away with it.

-most heartbreaking news that I've heard all year.

true but i'd rather a person like this be dead right away then go through the legal system and eat up my tax dollars then have him sit in jail and have my tax dollars going to support his daily life. And if it we here he would be released in 10 years anyways.

Hes dead, one less fucking idiot around.

I bet there's gonna be outrage about gun control again, which I think is skirting the real issue: Mental health. How did it get to the point where he wanted to and followed through with his plans to kill people? It couldn't have been a spontaneous act. Maybe it was, I don't know all the facts, but I doubt he woke up today and decided he was going to do what he did. He was obviously mentally ill. Did he not have the support from school/family/etc.? Was he neglected?

If there were no guns, he would have found another way to kill - case in point the China story. They have very few guns there but the weapon of choice turned to machetes. Maybe guns need to be regulated more tightly but in the States the general feeling is that it's in the Constitution and that if the government takes away the right to protect yourself and your property, the government is infringing on your freedom.

if they had open carry laws, would any teacher actually do this?
Maybe they should allow the principal to carry a gun in a safe in his office, provided he is trained?
I don't know, but I just don't want this to happen again. Worst news ever.

I'm not a parent myself, but I'm pretty damn protective of my best friend's two daughters. I called her up after hearing about this and had her hug the girls for me. I can't imagine what the parents of the victims are going through right now. It's just absolutely terrible.

While part of me is glad that the suspect is dead, the other part was hoping he'd be stuck in a prison's general population. Call prisoners what you will, but when it comes to harming children, even the hardest criminals will band together to teach that person a lesson. To me, I'd be more than happy paying my taxes knowing that he'd be suffering every single day of the rest of his life.

Very sad and right before xmas, I can't imagine what the parents are going through.

And on the topic of gun control...people need to be less focused on making the gun laws stricter and need to focus on mental illness and programs that need to be provided to people. We continue to cut budgets for mental illness, shutdown institutions that provide help so the result is you have all these people roaming our streets without any help. I'm a strong believer that strict gun laws will accomplish nothing, anyone who has a death wish will obtain guns no matter how tough it is, if they can't get guns they'll use other weapons like knives.

Like, I can't even. Seriously, there needs to be some kind of justice.

this story = 29 dead
china story = 22 injured

HUGE difference

what's more realistic, getting rid of the mental people or getting rid of their guns?

gun control, like ASAP, there's a reason we dont have public massacres here in canada

RIP

Well the problem is America is beyond gun control, there's basically 1 gun for every American so there's no way gun control will work or make a dent into these mass shootings. We need to turn our attention to mental illness which imo needs to be addressed here in Canada and in America.

^ He killed his dad before going to the school so it wasn't really targeted at his mom. No motive yet, but apparently he also posted he was gonna do it on 4chan a couple days before or something? I also read he was an honor roll law student or something. Media tends to fuck up information and that's what stopped me from reading more news. Never the less, sad news today. RIP.

Ditto.

Gun control does not prevent incidents like these from happening, but certainly help decide the outcome of these incidents. Injured > Death

There are tons of law abiding citizens who have guns in Canada, your point is invalid. The real issue is what caused this guy to snap, and what could have been done to help him before he chose to do this.

We have a superior social service structure for the mentally ill / troubled.

lets assume you don't have a gun...
i'm going to come to your house and punch you in the face for parking like a dumbass. you get angry and I run out. you chase me down and beat the crap out of me. I learn a valuable lesson and need plastic surgury but i'll live. lets say..

Now lets assume you have a gun kept in your garage...
Same story.. only difference is, you will probably go to the garage, pick up the gun and come after me while shooting. one or two of your shots will probably hit me , and kill me.

so the way i see it, guns enable people to kill other people.
