What happened at that school, and the oh so many other similar terror acts, is much more then just about guns!
It's about how we as a Nation treat our teachers, our civil servants, our first responders and many more that have come under attack because the society demands they perform with excellence and rapidly yet refuses to compensate them for those demands and their actual performance and expectations!
As to the gun culture it's the paranoia that has grown within and not only fed but defended by many as the civility of this society is torn down!
The media report this incident as to the numbers compared to other very similar terrorist actions. This is number one, and one we should never forget nor walk away from in short order, the sheer numbers of the defenseless, for it was acted out mainly against the most innocent on this earth, the very youngest among us, our responsibility, All adults responsibility to protect and educate!
