^^The White House already got you beat, son:
“The President has been made aware of the school shooting in Florida,” Deputy White House Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said. “We are monitoring the situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.”

Sorry, I forgot we had a catch-all thread for mass shootings. Damn, and we were so close to the time where we could talk about gun control and the clock got reset.

Don't worry everyone, Melania is also thinking and praying about how another school got shot up:

First lady Melania Trump is aware of the school shooting in Florida, and her thoughts and prayers go out to those involved, per East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham.

Sorry, forgot we had a mass shooting thread already. Feel free to lock. It would clutter the forum up to much for a new thread every time a school got shot up anyway.

this is just one of the saddest sentences or sentiments to hold... I hate that we have a "thread" for mass shootings as they are so damn common now. This country is really broken...

Shooter is caught. They showed him being put into the back of a police car on TV. He is white so the cops didn't shoot him on site.

That's the price of living in America, apparently. Sure you can buy 30 guns and have thousands of rounds of ammunition. You just have to sacrifice a bunch of kids every few weeks. #ThoughtsAndPrayers

All it takes is one crazy person with one gun. Unless you are going to propose banning all guns, your focus is woefully misdirected.

I think there are many things we could try that have been discussed ad naseum and here we are. Just gotta sacrifice a few kids every week or so instead and offer thoughts and prayers.

Now we're just waiting for this week's tally of dead children before we can get back to not doing anything about guns in this country.

One thing is damn sure, we have tons of crazy people in America, and tons of guns, and very little will to do ANYTHING about it. ANYTHING.

Don't worry; our Pres will tweet shame some disabled minority to shift our attention away from guns.

re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Did I say that school shootings happened once a day in America? Silly me. A planned mass shooting was thwarted yesterday!

http://q13fox.com/2018/02/14/court-d...rted-shooting/

EVERETT, Wash. -- Police arrested an 18-year-old Everett man they believe was planning to shoot people at his high school.

Officers arrested the man on attempted murder charges at ACES High School after being contacted Tuesday morning by his grandmother, who showed them a journal where he allegedly drew up plans to shoot students and use homemade explosives at the school.

Detectives serving a search warrant at the grandmother's house seized items including the student's journal, a rifle, and inert grenades.

Court documents obtained by Q13 News reveal alleged details of the suspect's plan, including how he chose which school he planned to attack.

According to probable cause documents:

The teen's grandmother called 911 at 9:25 a.m. on Tuesday to report that she found her grandson's journal, which detailed plans to carry out a shooting at ACES High School. She then found a guitar case with a semiautomatic rifle inside, which she did not know he had. She believed her grandson was close to carrying out the plans detailed in his journal.

The 18-year-old's journal indicated that he flipped a coin to decide which high school he would target. He then wrote that ACES "won" the toss and would become the target.

"I'm preparing myself for the school shooting. I can't wait. My aim has gotten much more accurate... I can't wait to walk into that class and blow all those f****** away," an entry in the journal read.

The teen's grandmother said he recently bought inert grenades and wrote in his journal about plans to make them "live." There was also an entry about making pressure cooker bombs and details about where and in what order he planned to place explosives.

The grandmother told police what she knew and allowed officers to search his room, where they spotted two grenades.

At the same time, the school was notified of the potential threat and an officer pulled the suspect from class, handcuffed and detained him.

The officer took the suspect to the Everett police south precinct. At some point, the suspect was able to get one of his hands out of the cuffs. He spun away from the officer and ran across the parking lot before falling down in some bark. The 18-year-old then "mule kicked" the officer before he was place back in both cuffs.

Police booked the suspect into jail for investigation of first-degree attempted murder for "planning and taking substantial steps toward executing a school shooting/bombing of ACES High School."

The man is due in court at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

If God didn’t want children slaughtered senselessly on a routine basis, he wouldn’t have given us guns and forced us to use them.

Just learned that the kids of a friend in Florida are safe. One has the shooting site as her assigned school but doesn't go there, while the other goes to school a couple hundred yards away.

Believe me I am strong favor of limiting gun ownership and strong background checks and any other things we can do to keep people from owning arsenals of assault weapons. But you have to be realistic - one crazy person with one gun is all it takes. So unless you are advocating a complete bar there will always be tragedies.

Still wish we'd do something instead of nothing. This has been normal for at least a few years now. Other than the Vegas shooting, none of these shootings really register beyond a day or two news cycle. With "Thoughts and Prayers" wearing thin, the initiative to do legislatively something (anything) is going to turn into a protest movement.
