I was hoping

I was hoping that with a new generation we might lose school shooters.

From Columbine to Parkland, the school shootings had all been Millennials.  Few GenX or Boomers shot up a school. I was hoping the Zoomers would not take that path.  Sometimes a generation will do that.  Break from the previous' trend .  But I can't twist the 15 year old into the previous generation and blame a cohort with an irrational and sweepingly broad brush anymore.  Silly, I know.  It was just a trend I wanted ended.

Enough won't be enough because it isn't about the gun, the car, the gasoline - it's about how people see (or don't see) their place in society.
Places with strict gun laws have had attacks with knives and homemade guns... You can't keep people away from all weapons.

Teenagers have ALWAYS wanted to solve their conflicts with violence. It’s just that 50-60 years ago it was with with fists.
