Time to at least get all assault rifles out of the hands of civilians. They are only good for killing people.

While I agree with the assertion - at least vis-a-vis automatic or military-style assault weapons, I don't think this particular crazy person chose an assault rifle. IIRC, he used handguns - presumably because they were easier to smuggle into the school.

Disclaimer: I approve of shotguns and rifles for hunting game animals. I worry more about handguns. I personally like the idea of mandatory firearms training by professionals before a person obtains a license, but hey - what do I know?

Methinks that maybe seriously disturbed individuals like this kid and the Aurora, CO shooter, should be institutionalized like they did in the old days when it was OK to put really crazy people away.

Political correctness has not served us well to the extent that it keeps sociopaths, psychotics and wackos circulating in the greater population long after they should have been forced to get treatment.

Sort of like it's not politically correct to call "terrorism" by its name (euphemisms like "man caused disasters," etc.).

Crazy is just plain crazy - and these shooters are definitely crazy.

IMHO, of course.
