    Are you saying that other school shootings were the top story on all sites at this point after the shooting?

    It's going to be easy for him, as in easy prey.

    Not sure where that question is coming from?

    No, only referring to one statement that someone made about this story.

    The sources said Wednesday that they believe the parents of Devon Erickson, the 18-year-old suspect, bought the weapons legally. Denver7 cannot say whether the parents had the guns secured inside the home.

    People under age 21 are not allowed to buy handguns in Colorado.

    Sources told Denver7 Tuesday that the motive of the alleged shooters went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school and that at least one of the suspects was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy. But Spurlock said Wednesday the incident was “too new” to establish a motive.

    My opinion may be unpopular and this is in no way an attempt to argue politics, but what I see is a whole lot of blame going to everyone BUT the shooters...everyone is so busy fighting gun rights, parental responsibility, potential bullies responsibility, government responsibility, school responsibility but very very rarely shooter responsibility. Not to say that all or some of those factors don't play in but there is very little if any accountability on the part of the person who actually pulled the trigger.

    Thank you. This may be the same case I was thinking of , but from what I remember about the other lone female mass shooter she was a teen, and not a student at the school that was targeted.

    Iirc she had a rifle, and was shooting from across the street from the school, shooting children who were outside on the playground.

    I may have the particulars mistaken though, but I thought that mass shooting happened in the 70s.

    Thanks again for the link. I will read it when I have more time.

    Depressing to see photos of somewhat happy HS teens that don't look violent resort to school shootings. Our system is broken.

    Well, it might help. There's gotta be a healthier way to deal with the inner rage teens are experiencing. I'm open to all kinds of solutions.

    Lol, it’ll be a long time before he experiences another manicure. However, he’s in for a whole lot of new experiences, imo. He has no idea......

    I have no sympathy for these shooters and what they did was awful, but this is a terrible thing to say. By disrespecting one trans persons pronouns and identity, you do the same of ALL trans people, because you imply that someone else's pronouns are something dictated by you depending on whether or not you like that person. I don't like Caitlyn Jenner, but I respect her pronouns. The shooter is a terrible person, but don't bring down all trans people because of him.

    I think this probably isn't staying in the news as much as one might expect because, thankfully, only one student has died. The media likes big stories with lots of tragedy. In the US, one person being murdered with a gun and several others being injured isn't huge news. RIP to the brave student who was killed trying to take down a gunman.
