4. Even with two school security guards? The whole student body was traumatized. Kids think and

process information differently. At some level, he was scared... kids watch the news...they hear adults talking like on here, yet without the maturity or developed intellect to process it at an adult level.

Surely if his parents kept guns, even legally...out of fear or whatever reason, it passed on down to him and he likely felt the need, again at some level, to protect himself...at 7 years old. And every incident frightens parents and kids more ... and calls for more guns out of protection and fear ... it's a negative sum situation.

God help us.
