Every time I hear about another mass shooting, it hurts my heart. So many innocent, defenseless people, and the families and communities left behind will never be the same. I don't see any workable solutions, it's a sign of the times, and I believe true evil, the devil, is behind each one, along with the many other moral disasters going on. We are all just humans, good and bad in all of us, no matter the race, age, gender, religion, political leaning, etc. I do think we need to focus on education, prevention, protection, etc., because this isn't going away. In both these events, there were already signs back in high school that should have been big red flags. Yes, some are mentally ill, some are just so hurt, or so angry (which comes from hurt), they just don't know how to handle it. We all need to start watching for the signs, and do what ever we can to help change that path. Report what you see. Show kindness to everyone at all times. Meanwhile, we need precautions, special locks and equipment, effective alerts, people in place to stop the chaos. I believe in people carrying, I lived in ME for 15 years and most of the people I knew carried. My son (active military) and son in law (gun hobbyist) both carry, and I feel safer when they are around. But I also worry about how other "carriers" and the police are going to know who is helping and who is hurting? The best thing we can do is PRAY! Pray for our schools, our politicians, our country, the victims families, business owners, and our police and other first responders.
