Awful. Also immensely disturbing when your first thought is "at least only 2 kids" got hurt as if 2 is an acceptable number.
Very sad...and discouraging. Its also interesting to note, given the weapon and what actually happened, that a lot of the fixes that have been mentioned on both sides of the argument, likely would not have prevented this from happening.
Although there is no mention of how he was stopped, or if he just gave himself up.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
After I heard about this, I was thinking in the car on the way to piano lessons about it. Regardless how you feel about guns and if you think they should be illegal, the fact of the matter is that millions of guns exist and there are some people that are just not going to give them back. It is very unfortunate, but the only way to insure that our nations children are safe is to assume that any person out there could have a gun and to really beef up school security. It is terrible that it has to happen, and it does make you feel like they are in prison not school, but it is what has to happen. It is an innocence lost. Like a person who has had a miscarriage can never relax and just enjoy early pregnancy, a person who has been raped can never really just relax and enjoy a man. Because of these tragedies we will never be able to just send our little kids happily off to school without worrying about them. You have to assume that it could happen. Regulations on guns might help, but it will not take away the problem. Medal detectors, doors that only open from the inside, armed guards, all of those things are horrible but are going to have to become a fact of life much as airport security has.
