Same Sh*t, Different Day-Another School Shooting In America

School used to be defined by the three R’s-reading, writing and arithmetic. Over the last twenty years or so, an SS need to be added to the three R’s- school shooting.

On Friday morning, Dimitrios Pagourtzis walked into a classroom at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas and starting shooting at classmates. When the shooting finally stopped, eight students and two teacher were dead. 10 more are wounded.

According to news reports, the young man accused of the murders used the guns his father purchased legally.

Once again, the argument comes down to one thing: gun control, Now granted, the weapons belonged to the boy’s father and were purchased through proper legal channels. However, that does not condone that murder of 10 innocent people.

As usual, the message from our government will be the same lip service: thoughts, prayers and empty promises.

How many kids will die before those in power actually do something about gun control? Or will it take a future shooting close to home for our government to actually do something that will once and for all and stop the killing of children who have just begun to live?

  1. Adults should be held responsible for any injuries or deaths done by guns owned by them and not locked where they are inaccessible to minors. Just as they are held responsible for alcohol served in their home to minors. The father should be in jail.
