Illinois Capital building. They didn't tear that down either. When I talked with the governor's office, she said the shooter was mentally ill. What can one do?

Did you notice most of those schools you mentioned were public not private? Is this not strange? Don't send your students to public schools? Actually many public schools are better than private. The private ones are expansive and may not have the best teachers. They don't do research, etc. Don't pay well (except for Yale, Harvard...Ivy League colleges for the elite few).

Virginia Tech-Public. 35 students killed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Polytechnic_Insti...
Northern Illinois University-Public. 5 students killed and some injured. http://www.niu.edu/about/index.shtml

Other shootings in red click...oh these are all Democratic places aren't they?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Illinois_Universi...

Maybe I'm a bit suspicious after 911 and Katrina but this seems like a set up to me. Always anxiety, mental problems,...and end up dead. Dead men tell no tales.

The last shooter at NIU I heard they didn't reveal his e-mails, cell home, etc.

They keep trying to get rid of our guns another ploy. As a man mentioned on this web site...we do have gun laws to keep the mentally ill from buying a gun but it is not enforced. Mail order and gun shows are a bad idea without proper ID, etc. That would take will and effort.

The shooter of Reagan was the son of a Bush friend. He was in a mental institution but never died. Some say Reagan may have faked his shooting to get out of going to jail for Iran Contra. Also they say Reagan died and they kept his body until it was convient to show around the country. I know it went on and on not like Kennedy, Roosevelt, etc. Lincohn yes. Reagan was no Lincoh but he was a Republican. The only comparison. Nothing Would surprise me with that gang today (back in power from that era).

Don't look at anything as it seems to be. We have crazy people running this country.
