    I figured about all high schools in Broward County would have had had metal detectors.

    Edit: I guess early reports are wrong and there is some fatalities after all.

    And of course, the Republicans in Congress will do nothing but say "we offer our thoughts and prayers" ....do something, doing nothing is just a sign that the NRA is in your back pocket and you are afraid of the consequences.

    Now, please do not read this as I am for banning guns, but I believe doing NOTHING is the wrong thing. We as a country are a laughing stock based on our obsession with weapons and mass shootings. **** like this doesn't happen anywhere else. I heard a right winger say "this is the cost of freedom." REALLY??? Innocent ppl getting killed is freedom?

    According to politifact, NYtimes, and Washington Post, the NRA has given a total of 4.2 million to both parties in 20 years. It's power is in its popularity, not its money to politicians.

    The shooter comes off as pretty nutty on his facebook page if he is the actual shooter as people seem to think.

    Did I say ban guns??? Of course not. That is very UNREALISTIC. But doing nothing and saying "our thoughts and prayers are with the family" as if prayers will actually solve the problem.

    I do not have a solution. It is WAY too complex for a sports message board. But I do know that we have people in Congress that claim to be smart. Sitting on your hands and offering prayers as a way to solve the blood bath our country has become is the wrong answer.

    And yes, if I sound pissed, it is because I am....I am pissed that this happens way too often and we have lawmakers we refuse to even address the issue...but instead their solution is to pray. Sigh.

    Per FBI: Follows Syrian and Iraq radicals on social media. Recent social media indicates he has mentioned bomb building, so a more involved search for possible bombs.

    Former student. Obviously Valentines Day love interest angle also being pursued.

    Pulled the fire alarm first.

    Only one shooter though, contrary to earlier reports.

    Yes, I am tired of Republicans doing nothing but saying "our thoughts and prayers are with the family" so you are correct in your reading comprehension.
