A sad day. My condolences to the families and loved ones.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Another member of the constitutionally protected "well regulated militia" acting out. Business as usual. Nothing to see here, move along.

So we're not speaking to events that occur in the U.S. in terms of their political reasons and consequences in this forum?

Okay. Got it.

To the person who filled out a request on my website calling me an ass...well it is easy to hide behind an non traceble email. I only wish you went to school there.

Seems like it may have a been over a girl. A love triangle maybe. Like this never happened before.

Of course it was the guns fault not the hormones or lack of common sense of a teenager. But of course many here feel that teens should be able to practice sex and get pills to prevent pregnancies because they are so mature.

As stated earlier. Move on nothing to see here. Smile Just another gun that got up and killed someone all by itself because guns are inherently bad and have a mind of their own.

You really are fixated on teenage sex, aren't you? Even though it has NOTHING to do with the tragedy. Still to be determined is how this boy had ready access to a .40 caliber hand gun.

Yea that sort of is what jumped out at me as well. The access part and all. I am not taking a side, or a position for that matter. Just that the detail of access seemed to jump out starkly to me.

I think it is much more because kids are NOT in control of their hormones and are so NOT emotionally mature or responsible that some parents might be in favour of making pills available.

Sad story indeed. My condolences.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

You nor I know what cause him to do what he did. However I did read, while it has not yet been confirmed, there might be a girl involved. Having said that. Teen agers have sex, and sex creates extremely strong emotions. Not just in teens, but in teens I feel it is much more difficult to cope with rejection after such emotions. That is why I am concerned about the passing out of day after pills, condoms etc. Not because I am fixated on teenage sex. Most teens are not capable of handling such emotions and I imagine have a very difficult time if after experiencing sex with someone that they at the time have feelings for and are later rejected and are unable to cope. That could very well be the case here. I am not it is. But it is a very strong possibility.

I hope I made myself clear on the subject of teen sex. It is playing with fire, and the condoning of it by passing out condoms and day after pills at schools sends mixed messages to already confused teens. And please don't tell me that the passing out of said materials is not condoning it. If not what is it doing? What message is it sending? That is why I am concerned. Your views may differ and that is fine.

I guess I have to spell it out for you. "r-e-p-e-r-c-u-s-s-i-o-n-s". Hope that explains it better.

Because of the "repercussions" it can cause. It should not be treated casually nor condoned or ignored by responsible adults. Is it going to happen? YES. That is not the issue. The issue is the treating of it so flippant and casually as if it means nothing.

I was obsessed with it from the time I was about 13 until I was almost 20. Then not so much.
