Where are the parents?! Are they just gun nut a-holes who think it’s cute that their spawn pose on social media with guns and threaten to kill people? What the heII.

Many parents use cell phones and computers as babysitters for their kids and don't monitor.

That’s very disturbing, Melanie. I hope they have lawyers in addition to smartphones because if their heinous offspring were to hurt mine, everything they ever thought they might have will be mine.

doubleblind society has unfortunately changed there were just as many guns when i was in school. but I don't remember one school shooting. I have been raised around guns my whole life but never saw a relative be careless with a firearm Guns were always locked up around kids. but then again we had strong parental presence in our lives. we always ate supper together and discussed our days. all my dad had to do is lower his eyebrows at one of us and we knew we were in big trouble. I don't think kids get the attention from their parents like they should. I understand that the local police were called out to the shooters house about 36 times in the proceeding year. can a parent commit a 19 year old to a mental facility ? I don't know and since this kid had his guns in the home was his father just too frighten to do anything about it ? i understand the shooter had also been on the internet learning how to make bombs. who was paying for this internet ? i'm afraid the parents have a lot to answer for.

For the 10 billionth time, guns are NOT the problem. It's lack of parenting, as some have said already, but it's also a society that has taught people lack of respect for human life and lack of respect for ANY authority, beginning with parents. Chicago is supposed to be gun-free, but stats in October 2015 revealed someone being killed every 2.8 hours, proving conclusive it's people not the firearms! It's the socialist mindset (liberalism) at its near ultimate conclusion. We, as a nation, are teetering on the knife edge of anarchy, and all the liberals keep shrieking for more of the same failed garbage while blaming conservatives. Disgusting and stupid to the max.
