OK, I Don't Really Have Time For This, But...

A Quick, Not-Very-Well-Thought-Through Reaction to this ridiculous tragedy:

1. I'm sure the picture of the female Asian student grieving that happens to be attached to the article regarding the shooter being Asian is just a coincidence.

2. Something in the article about the serial numbers on the weapons having been filed off...a detail leaked to provide fodder for the NRA-types (See! See! Criminal behavior will always be with us...)

3. The argument that this kid would've done much less damage if limited to having a knife, baseball bat, etc. (anything shy of "gun") resonates with me.

4. The argument that a concealed carry law would've armed other students who then could've thwarted the attacker before the death toll mounted quite so high resonates much less with me.

5. What the FUCK is wrong with us (as a society)? What drives us to kill each other in numbers that are so far beyond imagination?

6. Thank God Bush is arriving at the scene! Peace and order will be restored for certain.

It's unbelievable.

I don't know how we fix these sort of problems. If people want to kill other people, with no regard for consequences, they're going to do it.

Gun's don't kill people - orientals do!

After listening to the killer's suite mates it sounds as if this guy should have been locked up long ago.

He was nuts.

And the availability of guns is everywhere and that is not the problem. If he didn't get it legally at the gun store, he would have gotten it illegally from somewhere - just like in other countries where gun purchasing is not legal.
