Default CO School Shooting


Devon Erickson, Colorado school shooting suspect, shared anti-Trump post on Facebook

By Lia Eustachewich May 8, 2019

The 18-year-old accused in the fatal shooting at a Colorado charter school shared social media posts that were critical of President Trump and Christians, but heaped praise on former President Barack Obama....

And farther on in the article you see this: Authorities believe the two alleged shooters attended STEM. The second suspect is a transgender minor who is transitioning from female to male....

Just Wanted you to know about this so you understand this was just another radical DEMs in action. I am sure they will try and spin it to make it look like the GOP is to blame.

So firearms seem to be the go-to for nut cases trying to make a splash, Take the firearms away and what do you have, a nutcase motivated to make a splash who may be willing to research something worse than a firearm. A likely analogy would be to outlaw knives, then what, screwdrivers, box cutters?
If there was a simple answer the problem would have been solved long ago.

I saw an interview with some kids from that school this morning on the news. The 18 year old was a nut job that several of the kids said they could see something like the shooting happening by him from a mile away, one of the kids left the school and went to another school because of him. The other one, the juvenile was a she/he, a female that wanted to be a male, you know one of the people they want to put in any restroom or locker room they want to use. This is the kind of stuff the left has brought us with their diversity, ignoring signs of problems and non judgmental crap.

When you're a liberal and can only focus on first-order effects, it often seems as simple as "remove the tool, the crime goes away." But, you hit the nail on the head.

While it might seem "kind" to let psychopaths roam the streets freely, they're still going to do psychopath things. Duh. I find it interesting how Colorado has, over the past few years, passed progressively more restrictive firearms laws, and yet - it continues? How does that work? Do we ever take a tactical pause and think, "maybe there's more to this than just guns?" How many laws did they violate before they started shooting? Ownership of handguns by someone under 21 years of age has been illegal on the Federal side since... oh... 1968?

Colorado has a cancer. It's called "the Front Range" or "Boulder-itis" More specifically, it's liberalism. Really, Denver just passed some kind of city ordinance to decriminalize "magic mushrooms." I wish I were making that up. They're spiraling into the abyss and they have no idea why.

It is interesting how often we hear the refrain "We knew this person was trouble." I don't have an answer, but here are a few brief observations.

1. **** happens. Bad **** happens sometimes. Sometimes we just can't prevent things like this from happening. I don't know if school shootings is one of those things, but I want it to be on the table as a thought.
2. This stuff didn't used to happen. What has changed? Again, I don' t know, I'm just grasping at ideas, hypotheses. In former days when someone was seen to be bound for trouble, they gotten taken down a notch, maybe two notches, maybe three notches. I won't go into more detail, but there were ways to coerce people into compliance with minimum standards of civility. If people could not abide society, they were removed from society. Some people deem such lack of acceptance and intolerance as a bad thing. I recommend those people return to #1 identified above and learn to tolerate that.
3. Maybe people who aren't happy with the sex they were given at birth are inherently troubled and broken people. I'm not a psychologist, but this occurs to me as a distinct possibility. Maybe rather than modifying the whole rest of society to accommodate such unfortunate people, the right thing is to treat them with sympathy but assure they do NOT harm the rest of us.

I can sum up the problem with school shootings, the ones perpetrated by youth, in one simple small sentence. Lack of discipline. We are no longer allowed to show our children that there are consequences, sometimes severe ones, for incorrect actions. All these docs just saying to feed them drugs and coddle them need to be smacked into wakefulness.

YES.....

You sir have NAILED IT. Parents these days want to be their kids friend. INSTEAD of being a parent.
DISCIPLINE is sorely lacking. Not just at home. But at school also.
