But I thought this gun control was working. Where are the background checks. NOT

Background checks for firearms doesn't stop any dedicated person from acquiring a firearm. Drugs have been illegal for years, but a 9-year old child can fairly easily acquire whatever illegal substance he so desires. These shootings are tragedies, but we need to focus on the real problem. The person is the real problem, not the tool they use.

Another senseless tragedy. People are the problem, not the tool that is used. We kill 35,000 people each year on our highways. These deaths don't make national news. Parents need to take on the responsibility of raising their children, and teach them responsibility and how to properly resolve situations rather than getting a gun and going out in a blaze of glory.
