re: "No regulation or reform can undo all homicidal insanity." ************************** EXCELLENT point! We will most likely significantly over-react here! Excessive airport security for everyone is an example. ALL terrorists so far have fit a "dark/brown profile." Strip searches of old white people are STUPID. We got conned into wasting BILLIONS on guvment airport security. As for schools, movie theaters, etc., if a psycho flips out, we CANNOT stop him-- and it is ALWAYS a male. This kid had heard that his CARING Mom would have him committed and he flipped. Banning guns or spending BILLIONS on school security would not stop this. He was simply a psychopath; Asperger's had nothing to do w/it.

a school shooter does not always have to be a nutjob;it could be a terrorist.
school shootings are no different than a terrorist attack.
the PLO used to attack schools in Israel,UNTIL Israel allowed armed school employees.
After the next PLO attack was shot up and defeated,the PLO stopped attacking Israeli schools. the risk became to high for the PLO,determined,well-armed terrorists. Yet "progressives" object to the same practice in US schools.

I totally agree. Well put.

We can't prevent, but we can nip it as soon as it starts!

In the wake of a monstrous crime like a madman's mass murder of defenseless women and children at the Newtown, Conn., elementary school, the nation's attention is riveted on what could have been done to prevent such a massacre.

Luckily, some years ago, two famed economists, William Landes at the University of Chicago and John Lott at Yale, conducted a massive study of multiple victim public shootings in the United States between 1977 and 1995 to see how various legal changes affected their frequency and death toll.

Landes and Lott examined many of the very policies being proposed...
