How much taunting, emotional bullying, ridicule, humiliation does it take for a human to 'snap' and vent themselves in bloody carnage? How about *not* engaging in such torment? How about parents stepping up and doing a better job raising civilized kids that don't act in ways that can incite violence?We do not live in a consequence-free world, and as horrific as these murders are, we must not wallow in our grieving victimhood...we can all be better people and contribute to a more peaceful society.Yet be responsibly armed in preparation for the inevitable failures, despite our best efforts...
