Here's my opinion:

Thinking about school shootings is a pretty terrifying thought. Many schools have had it, leaving many people to be disfigued
Many families greiveing over their child who was cruelly taken away from their friends and family, many who are a afraid to
even go to school. And there are those who will just make jokes about recent shootings, admiring the killers who took lives
and didn't even take responsibility, making fun of people who were murdered, and putting down families who have lost their
child.

Its NEVER funny to make memes out of school shootings or put down families/surviviors. The fact that people say: "stop gun
violence" or "Guns are the problem" its not the case anymore. The thing that needs to be done is to help the people who are struggling,
help the people who want to murder people, who want to commit suicide.


This should've stopped at columbine. It should have ended at columbine. But it never did, about thousands of kids have been
murdered from school shootings ever since columbine

I thank you to who ever reads this for taking the time and listening

I really doubt it's in the thousands.

Anyway I think School Shooting are tragedies that shouldn't have to happen, and I think people who use such tragedies to push their politically motivated agendas are disgusting.

I was a senior this past March when all those walkouts were occurring at high schools about gun restriction, and when I was voicing my opinion on the importance of mental health, people got extremely upset with me. That it was insensitive for me to say guns aren't the issue here.

I always try to say that a gun doesn't pick itself up and start injuring/killing people. The person wielding the gun is where the problem lies. WHY did they pick up the gun? WHY did they decide to injure students and children? What went wrong in their life for them to make such a drastic decision?? Even without guns, I'm sure these mentally sick individuals such as Eric and Dylan would have found other ways to accomplish what they wanted to do.

Yeah gun restrictions could potentially help, but it won't fix the main issue, which is mental health.

Guns aren't the cause of mass-shootings, neither is mental health, bullying or psychopathy. It's a combination of issues that intersect. A bit like how you need 3 things to start a fire: ignition, oxygen and fuel (guess who has been doing fire safety training at work), you need a combination of factors to produce mass-shooting. To reduce the risks, you need to look at each factor individually.
What we rarely hear about are the people who *almost* became shooters (although there is a interesting TEDtalk from a guy who was almost a shooter), because understanding how they have been prevented is the best way to prevent more.

you know that's a good way to put it actually, it being a combination of issues. I guess it depends from shooter to shooter because each of them must have differing motives and reasonings.

They did plan on the killings being primarily a bomb attack, so perhaps if guns weren't available they would've focused more on bomb making?

They did also talk about commiting a home invasion and torturing a person they hated to death along with the would-be victim's family, so perhaps their killing spree would've been more like the slasher film Scream.

yeah probably and then we'd be going through an issue of school bombings right now instead of shootings cuz E&D are so looked up to lol

Their bomb making skills were pretty poor though, I don't think they would have ever been able to cause the number of fatalities they did through bombs alone.
Guns alone do not cause mass-shootings, but the only thing school shooters have in common is guns. They are part of the equation, ready access to guns is not the cause of mass-shootings but it is a catalyst.
