Obama must 'exploit' shooting
The usual Police State Nuts are using the tragedy to further restrict our liberties. Their goal is to eliminate the 2nd Amendment so that they can attack the First Amendment.
On a local level, the school administrators are proposing to turn our schools into virtual prisons. Of course, this will not help prevent any shootings. But it makes them look like they care and are in charge of the situation. Such an image can help with their political careers.
Then we have the usual religious conservatives who claim this has happened because God is no longer in the classroom.
During all this uproar, I have heard no one mention that the worst school killing happen back in the good old days of 1927. When I lived in Michigan I remember visiting the memorial.
What was different back then was that people did not clamor for a reduction of liberty because of this crime.
