1. Violent video games
2. Abortion
3. Irresponsible gun owners
4. Not enough armed teachers
5. Too many school entrances
6. Decline of religion in schools
(Analysis by Chris Cillizza)

Teachers did NOT go to college and get a degree to go to work and be armed. They didn’t go to protect children from harm. They are educators. People and the POTUS needs to quit putting that responsibility on teachers because our government has failed to protect its children.
CNN and liberals want more school shootings rather than arming guards at schools so they can ban all guns.
In 1994 there was a ban on assault type guns and deaths by massacre dropped by 47%! In 2004 Republicans allowed this law to laps and the death rate more than doubled! Stricter Gun Law Save Lives! Tell me that we don’t need gun control!
Funny how every other country on the Earth with mental illness, bullying, legal abortion, multiple school entrances and lack of prayer in schools isn't burying mass murdered schoolchildren on a regular basis.
Maybe if we start calling Mass shooting by the term Mass abortions maybe the republicans will do something to protect our children.
The GOP no longer works for the American people. They have devolved into a cesspool of corruption, greed, and shamelessness. Under Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress, nothing will ever get accomplished on stopping domestic shootings of any kind. I am glad to say I’ve never voted for a Republican and I never will. Not to say Democrats are perfect, but I know a good BS story when I see one. #AnyoneElse2020 #Midterms2018 #GetOutAndVote
The school shooter was a gun nut. The shooter went on church outings. The school shooter pressured a girl to go out with him to the point of harassment. The school shooter was a junior rural Christian conservative republican through his behavior. Ask him why he did it and he will say "because abortion and libtards."
"Thou shalt not kill"......unless it's with a gun I'm America, because the 2nd amendment says it's ok. Conservatives: cant decide between the outdated document, and the fictional one.
How come it's NEVER THE PARENT'S FAULT? How can you live with someone, raise that someone for over a decade and not have a clue what that person is like, moreover, how much of an influence YOUR attitudes and behaviors are influencing theirs? If their kid does something horrible, it's the fault of heavy metal music, or rap, or video games, or the kid is mental,BUT it's NEVER the parents' fault. But if the kid turns out to be a winner, these same parents will be there with their hands up trying to take the credit. Parents like these have got to be some of the most full-of-crap people ever.
Everything except the gun. A common denominator that isn't applied by conservatives. Maybe common core would help.
So what gun law would have prevented someone from buying a gun legally and then their child stealing it to use it for a crime?
Don't forget prescription drugs are being blamed as well. Oh and that one girl shouldn't have told the shooter no after being harassed for weeks on end.
7. The tool used, and not the individual or circumstances leading to such an event. But hey, I'm a Russian Bot.
Technically, religion didn't leave schools. God never abandons you and it was to sad to think people think that as soon as you step into a school that he will abandon you. I went to schools that allowed student led bible studies in the mornings.
How does abortion factor in? The only relationship that has been statistically significant between abortion and crime is that increased access to abortion is statistically related to a decrease in crime.
If you think violent video games are the biggest problem.. then WTH are you personally doing to get violent video games out of the hands of children?
If people in government positions spent as much time actually doing something valuable vs sitting in an air conditioned room talking, half the schools would be secure by now. All talk and no action. Finger pointing, blaming does nothing.
How about all of you that are for gun control or confiscation, go out and take the guns from all the criminals and all the mentally ill first, then the problem will be solved. Stop trying to punish everybody. There are law-abiding citizens that have guns and they have not went out and killed anyone. Or better yet start at home with the parents of these kids that don't have control of their children.
Abortion? How is abortion responsible for people shooting up a school? Please...🙄. Republicans will use ANYTHING as an excuse to NOT make changes to gun laws.
Start protecting the kids instead of gun control. The killers already wanted to kill. It was how they were going to do it. So called gun control won't stop them if they had the mindset to do it in the first place. Protect the kids like the TSA protects the airports.
Or my personal favorite, the same people who have been yelling "suck it up snowflake," "libtard," etc. the past couple years are suddenly concerned about bullying and how someone must have really hurt the shooter's feelings for this to have happened.
So pathetic!!! Yes it’s absolutely a gun issue this kid stormed into a classroom and the first person he killed was the teacher! And he had a stand off with police tell me how arming teachers is the answer!!! Not to mention all the possible scenarios that could happen if that were to go into place, ALL the money they would assumingely put into “arming” teachers could be money would be much better spent on educating kids, their parents and communities! More guns is not and will never be a good solution! This is all a bi-product of hateful, desensitized kids who happen to have easy access to GUNS!
I mean....what can you say at this point? They're having to get creative. Video games....thats a cool retro one though. As we all know...other countries have gotten rid of all there violent video games. ~smh
Canada has ■ violent video games ■ violent movies and TV shows (many the same as are shown in the US) ■ religion removed from schools ■ abortions and "broken families" ■ 'too many entrances' to schools ■ unarmed teachers ■ kids on Ritalin ■ kids that are bullied ■ domestic violence There have been 11 deadly school shooting incidents in Canada since 1975 (that's 11 in 43 years). The highest number of deaths per incident was 14 people killed in 1989. Know what Canada has that the USA does not? Common sense gun control laws. People who say guns are not the problem are actually right. The real problem are the people who refuse to regulate the sale, use and storage of guns. Guess they'd fall under the "irresponsible gun owners" category.
Gotta love the Regressive Right. They seem to believe the constitution is meant to protect what they like, and will put up the rights of others (including YOUR right to free speech) if they don't like it. Rabid, moralistic destructive fundamentalists. I'm a self identified moderate, but I don't see democrats trying to take away most rights.

"For as long as this is happening... we will speak and occupy and yell and lie down and sit and stand to make sure that common-sense gun laws are enacted": Teenagers staged a "die-in" outside the Governor's Mansion in Austin, Texas https://cnn.it/2IzuiZu

Don't be fooled. When Democrats talk about gun control, what they really want is a ban and confiscation.
Waiting for the adult bullies to bully these kids who survived a massacre and then preach on their Facebook page how to raise children properly, place blame on the children and promote their undying love of guns!
yawn....we have a society problem, not a gun problem. While we're at it, lets make drugs illegal too, so we won't have a criminal gang killing spree problem, opiod crisis, and overdose crisis.
All the adults scoffing at these kids need to get a grip and face the reality that these kids will vote soon, and the Boomer stranglehold on American polls will fail. These kids will remember, bitterly, how American adults refused to keep them safe, and their retribution will be severe.
stricter gun laws wont matter..people with bad intentions will always find a way..they will get guns illegally..so sad, not sure what the answer is..
How about we hold parents accountable for the actions of there kids. A new gun law isn't going to make that kids partents pay attention to what he was up to and plotting.
Kids you can't get anything done that way. You have to lobby and pay millions of dollars like the NRA if you want real change. That's the American way.
Parents should start teaching their kids about respect so they stop bullying kids. Those killers are a result of weak kids that get bullied at school.
I won't feel safe unless teachers are fully kitted with a suppressed AR15 SBR equiped with a dbal-2 and loaded with a magpul D60 filled with 60 rounds of Hornady tap 62 grain .556, a Chest rig with plates and a Glock 19.
If it was a "die-in" shouldn't they stop breathing as well to make it more realistic? Otherwise it just looks as if they are either being lazy bums or they are loitering.
No matter your political side or angle this is really, really sad all the way around 😪. Children are being murdered at an alarming rate because of these shootings...I’m not into politics, I’m just a new mom with serious concerns. It really breaks my heart 💔
We have common sense gun laws...can their be changes...sure..open to ideas, like making the owner of a weapon used to commit said types of crimes accountable for not securing their firearms. There are already laws that make an accomplice, no matter how small the participation, culpable for murder charges if a death is the direct result of the crime committed. Lets add personal accountability to that message as well! Stop blaming the object and start holding the person/people accountable.
The governor won't care. Nothing is going to change. Mass shootings are the new normal. I wonder when we get to start having them in amusement parks or shopping malls or banks? That's a realistic possibility. Nothing will ever change unless there's a mass shooting on Wall Street .
hope these students grow up and if they enter into politics... this is absolute example of what not to be...! absolutely atrocious and incompetent... for refusing to legislate bans...!
Tell your mommies and daddies to lock up their legally owned guns. New York has one of the strictest gun laws in the country. Means absolutely nothing. They just go to other states, usually down south, and purchase them with no trouble. Until theses states can resolve their gun laws, they have to come up with ways to keep the schools safe. I've read some people don't want their children going through strict security in school. Really?? Well, they'll have a better chance of returning home, alive.
There is no such thing as "common-sense" gun laws. The laws we have on the books right now make perfect sense but do criminals follow them? Why do we need more laws to prevent things that are already illegal? That is not common sense, it is absurdity!
This school shooting dosen't feel as "Tragic" as other school shootings. All media turned to the Royal Wedding after just 1 day. I wonder if that's because this Texas Community drencehed in guns (and hate) has contributed to it's own problems?
Honest question here; If a security force comprised of well trained teams in plain clothes were implemented. Wouldn’t this make students feel safer knowing the adults are taking their safety seriously? And along the same lines, wouldn’t if go a long way for their peace of mind knowing that there is an appropriate response to a mass shooter ready and available at all times?
There is ALREADY background checks to buy a gun. Santa Fe, used guns that were not secured. Plus he had issues, social, mental.
I am so impressed with how todays teens have taken a stand. They will be the voters and decision-makers of tomorrow, and I really hope the US can evolve in this respect in the same manner as other first world countries.
Just how long will communities wait to enact policies and procedures to improve security for their children and teachers? There is no justifiable reason local school boards and communities to abdicate this responsibility. They can make access changes and screening needed now. Stop waiting for "someone else" to pay.
Come and gun sets laws are enacted it's just that you idiots don't listen and keep pushing for something different. These kids don't know what they're talking about they're just up and arms yelling because the media gave them some attention. Some parents need to get their belts out and buy some butts and tell him to get in line pay attention at school get the teachers to quit indoctrinating them and parents need to be responsible somewhere parents and grandparents have dropped the ball on this new generation put the blame where it belongs back to the parents it's not the government's fault these kids are acting out it's parents not being parents with letting their kids get away with murder, literally
7000 or more existing gun laws didn't stop ANY of these recent tragedies. Passing 20 more won't save a single life. Especially considering gun felonies are prosecuted less than 5 percent of the time. Don't act like you care if "common sense gun control" in any way sounds like a logical solution to you.
here we go again - another post by CNN showing kids that don't know what's going on......stronger gun laws will NOT stop criminals!
lol criminals dont obey laws dipshits LOL....thats why they are called criminals... more laws will not save us only punish those that obey the ones in place... what can stop this is talking to all kids about guns... its not worth loosing your life witch is not yours at all its your friends your family and those around you.

She spent the last years of her life working two jobs to help pay for the medical expenses of her husband. Now he will have enough funds for a stem cell treatment.

Teacher gets shot at school while working to pay for her husbands healthcare.... classic America.
That...pretty much sums up America. We really need to take a hard look in the mirror at what kind of country we are; because this right here, this sucks. Gunned down trying to educate kids and keep her husband alive because of outrageous medical premiums and prices. Shame on us.
America: the only nation on earth where it's better for the love of your life to die so you an get money to save yourself from a life-threatening illness.
Jesus. Welcome to America, where working two jobs isn't enough to pay for vital medical care, but don't worry, because your horrible murder may spur some people to donate money to your grieving family
I don't think the husband sees it that way... This is very insensitive to the family
1. And people still believe in a loving God 2. This example alone is the product of the two biggest problems afflicting USA: the unaffordable costs of healthcare and the gun control law we’re all desperately waiting for
Wow, as sad as this is, what a blessing for this man that all of these people want to help him. May she rest in peace.
What a terrible angle this post takes! While I’m sure this was intended to point out the problems with our current health care system and dismal teacher salaries, it promotes the idea that there are financial rewards to death and that women are useful in so much as they help men, even if that help comes from them having been murdered!
Sad testament to how bad our healthcare situation is. Not only do we have to set up Gofundme accounts to get life saving treatment, but even sadder now is he can get what he needs, but his wife is no longer at his side 😞
You can have the strictest gun laws in the world, but, if legal owners don't secure their guns safely, this will just go on and on. If students are allowed to just walk into a school, this will happen again. Schools should be protected like airports, on a smaller scale. No one seems to address this. All I hear is better gun laws. Not the answer.
Welcome to America in 2018, where the only way for your loved one to get life saving medical treatment is for you to be executed in a mass shooting. Are we great again yet?
It is incredibly sad that she had to die in order for husband to get a chance at life. One of the world's wealthiest countries and a large segment of the populace can't afford health care. We are morally bankrupt.
And our moron president who lied to the Parkland kids thinks we’re going to forget all about this. I can’t wait til he goes to prison!!!
Seriously? How is it possible that her husband didn't get paid the medical treatment he needed and she had to work in two jobs? Thank god that you get everything you need here. Even without a job, you get the medical treatment you need. Unbelievable, so ridiculous much money in the US but people don't even get what they need.
This poor family. Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is a death sentence without a lung transplant, if he qualifies for one. I certainly hope the husband/father can get the answers he needs soon. Even worse, is someone would have to die in order to save him. This is terrible all around.
Omg this unnecessary killings needs to stop. We need to teach our children to do the right thing. Be good human beings. Love your neighbor no matter what color or religion or nationality. As long as there is evil in the world, it doesn’t matter whether we have guns or we don’t. Evil is evil. Let’s teach humanity to be more kinder, respect yourself and all living things. Let’s go back to manners.
How devastating for that man to lose his loving and devoted wife. It's so sad that our health-care system is such that before his wife was murdered, he had hardly any hope of living into 2019. With media stories from her devotation and death came donations that will enable him to receive the help he needs. Now he will have life, but his wife is gone. This isn't right.
Happy Rich Americans Free Healthcare. Mental health & FREEDOMS oh so many. So u can sell your home to keep u breathing. Or sell your life insurance to pay EXTREMELY UNRESONABLE HIGH no care Healthcare. Blow your whole life's everything to live. WE ARE THE ONLY that give & get zip.
its just shocking how usa represents itself to be the greatest country in the world and people have to work 2 jobs to pay for medical expenses and usa is not able to control guns.. something what in europe is an absolute standard is in the usa privilege!
This is such a tragedy. When will politicians stop letting our schools become killing zones with these ridiculous "gun free zones?" We protect courts banks and even athletic events with guns but our children and teachers are left to fend for themselves. What a shame
State or Federal funds should be utilized to pay for the costs of funerals and medical, psychological care of those victims of school-gun violence! victims nor families should have to suffer such burdens!
This is so sad.People work everyday some two jobs like This teacher and still cant get or afford health care because of these greedy insurance companies and our elected officials wont do anything about but get money to line their greedy pockets.Her husband and any other hard working American deserve the medical treatment as the First Lady.Her treatment was probaly paid for by tax payers.
Sad that you just can not grow beyond republic vs democrat. Sink political affirmations, ideology, race differences whatever. Let all work to ban guns else you are doomed. If you don't, you will be a paranoid society living in fear, overreacting to every suspicion and killing each other. Ban guns. Guns do not distinguish between race and political leanings.
There needs to be a class in school about Anger Management and options you can take if you don't like your surroundings. Get kids focused on life after school. Some kids can't see the forest through the trees.
Sometimes I wonder if everything truly does happen for a reason. Even horrible events like this one and all the others.

"You are entering into a war zone. And it's the world, and it's a spiritual war zone.": This district attorney had some sobering words for the graduating class of Santa Fe High School, following last week's shooting that left 10 dead https://cnn.it/2KJkWXI

The NRA is the real evil in this... this isn't about guns this is about the NRA that is so corrupt they don't want it any changes made not even background checks!
No, it’s a war on reason. It’s unreasonable conservative Republicans and the NRA at war with reason and common sense gun legislation/control.
What this clown is trying to tell you is that thanks to the GOP and NRA your future is now guns and more guns and if you get shot you can blame the number of doors in the building!
It is a sad state of affairs when elected officials will do more to protect the NRA than they will to prevent children from being slaughtered in their schools.
The US can send people to the moon and back, find cures for horrible diseases, but mass shootings at schools and other public places...there simply isn't a solution. It's the most baffling problem man has ever faced. We will have to learn to live with them.
Democrats have entered the abyss. Half the Obama administration is about to go to prison for putting an informant (mole) into the Trump campaign and attempting to frame the incoming President. Get your popcorn ready
Folks: tell your congress representatives and senators how you feel about stronger gun control in America. Let them know where your mid-term vote in November is going if they don't push for stronger national gun laws, like universal background checks. Here's an easy way to contact them: https://5calls.org/ Call them now. Then be sure to vote in November. But don't vote for any politician who accepts NRA money.
How about adequate security for your school? Maybe that would have made a difference keeping someone with a sawed off shotgun under their trenchcoat out of the school?
Way to give the kids support an encouragement you moron. How about reassuring the seniors of what great things they’ve done and that post graduation life will be enjoyable yet difficult, that would be reasonable.
I'm sorry this gentleman, as well intended as he might have been, was asked to address high school graduates. These graduates, in particular. The fact is that 'war'metaphors have no place when addressing spirituality. War is an anathema to spirituality. There is no "spiritual war zone', and you can not fight a war in favor of spirituality any more than you can 'fight a war for peace'. By using this rhetoric the speaker is simply ramping up the fear, anger and derision that has marked the Right's rise to power.The timing of this address and the setting couldn't have been more unfortunate. More thought should be given next time, by the speaker or those who select the speaker.
sigh, this isn't the sort of speech the kids should hear, especially now. Of course they're in a war zone, I think they figured that out very well just a few days ago.
There is no spiritual war going on. What is going on is we are human beings and there are those in power who look down on those who are not white and believe they are a subspecies to them and has spawn hate since ending a World War II
This guy needs to retire, now. Granted he sees the worst of society, but that’s the point, he sees the worst all day every day, and 99% of those students won’t. A “spiritual war zone”? Sounds like he’s in the same bible study class as Pence, Pompeo, and other End of Timers. I’d have yanked my kid out of that speech pronto.
No one wants to face what really going on, it’s not gun laws this time. he wasn’t legally able to access any of these weapons. Ima say it like this u have to find a commonality in each of these mass shootings, there only one and it’s not the gun being used. No matter what law we pass, it just keep happening.
My heart goes out to the families that lost their loved ones, May God be with them in their time of loss and heartbreak, I also pray that this country opens their eyes and starts praying to figure out how to help protect our children from gun violence
In an article, it was said, "in every single gun massacre over the past several decades for which we have reliable information about drug use, the shooter has been taking psychotropic drugs prescribed by a physician. So Drugs or mental illness, We still choose to ignore the truth. I guess it is easier to blame the gun or the knife, as the other (Drugs or mental illness) is not fixable! Here is a small example of what I personally found about 42 mass killings. Many more are linked to drugs. Can't fix what we won't acknowledge! Vegas: Stephen Paddock anti-anxiety medication in his urine. Parkland, Florida, the shooter who murdered 17 was on medication for emotional issues.

Bottom line there is one school that is safe.However it will take four hundred thousand dollars to do it to other schools..
Religion is the cause for all the hatred and killings. How can it be the sin that is the problem when all you need to do is ask for forgiveness and everything is good again.
Nancy Pelosi had her tqlk today but did not mention school shootings or gun control. She must be on new meds
It is eerily shocking how we (Americans) are no longer talking about Al Qaeda and foreign terrorism anymore as we did during the Bush & Obama administration. Today, school mass shootings are practically in our daily conversations. And the perpetrators of these school mass shootings are not radicalized misguided muslim youth (although that has been and remains a threat) but its young white males with connections to guns legally purchased...let that sink in. I ask you, what are their grievances? And in what ways are they unlike the misguided Muslim youth who have become enraged with America? How does the heart of a high school kid become so enraged to prompt violence and seek revenge? I don't fully know the answers but I would like to hear yours.
Spiritual war zone, no hun it is not spiritual, far from it in fact. We are in a war zone where real blood is being shed.
Students shouldn’t have to feel like they’re playing Russian roulette every time they walk into school.
Thoughts and prayers haven’t stopped the bullets. Our nation is flooded with firearms then healthcare, mental healthcare and schools are defunded so it is a recipe for disaster and the people that do that get re-elected.
Congratulations, CNN and mass media for encouraging mass shootings by giving these school shooters the fame and attention they want, fueling like minded people, who crave attention, to do the same. SMH
What his speech should have been. If you bully a child. Boy or girl. For years during your and there school years. And one day he or she snaps. Breaks out a gun or knife. And shoots stabs and kills his tormentors. Well sucks to be you.

Hillary and the dems. Are the ones whom we needed out of the power to make policys. Trump has done more than Obama ever did to make America strong again ( remember the red line and Bengazy ) cowads are the dems.
Please God I beg you to strike this evil down! She reminds me of the time that Job in the bible had to deal with the devil. This lady is a murdered and a pedoperv that needs to go to prison. I want to thank a CNN loyal reader for catching my spelling mistake. I wrote: Jobe with an E but was able to correct my mitake,
It appears the trump's cult members are having a hard time getting over her. Back in you basket people she wants nothing to do with you.
TRUMPists, TRUMPeters, TRUMPhants and TRUMPers have conquered CNN. I am enjoying the comments I am getting here. I am glad Americans love their Trump. Many nations envy TRUMP and they wish to have a President like TRUMP. Many Presidents want to be like President TRUMP. For me here, I am a TRUMPter . TRUMP till 2024.
People that claim that America's democracy's in crisis or in danger don't realize how lucky they are to have one of the most transparent and licit democracies of the entire planet, take it from a Venezuelan, I know a thing or two about non-transparent and flawed democracies.
why would she parade the world and her country bashing the leader of the USA? please identify the "full Fledged Crisis"! the economy is doing much better. Crime is being dealt with according to written laws of the land. North Korea is negotiating. pray tell who is enduring a "crisis" you megalomaniac, thats you Hilary who doesnt know enuff when its time to stand down!
Good thing we're not a democracy..A constitutional republic is what it's called. Our founding fathers made sure of that.
But with 4 more years of your polices we would of been in big trouble....lies, lies, and lies will catch up to you sooner than later....you'll see....it's coming...
Corrupt people like the Clintons are the reason our country is in such bad shape now. Thank God for President Trump trying to "right the ship" again!
Again, the words of the British MP on the floor of Parlaiment that the world will have to get used to the USA being without leadership once trump is president! And trump is fulfilling her words on a daily basis!!
She is right. Look at the way the left shouts down opposing speech. Look how the left wants to strip you of constitutional rights. Look how the left wants to go take down an elected official because they don't like his character. Etc etc etc
She is certainly correct that our way of life and form of government are under attack. And the congressional repubs do nothing while trumpster tears the country apart to save his skin
I think if she won we’d be where we are now... only the conservatives would be doing everything they can to bring her down. I call myself pretty Democratic but I wouldn’t say we would be great under her as president.
Economy better each day. Unemployment is still going down. Job creations up.. each week Trade deal with china is getting closer - US hundreds of billions better off. NK meeting will be historical Stock markets up Jerusalem finally a US ambassy. Tirant Iran - back in place. The list goes on... Yeh... its so bad under Trump.
No. This country would be turned into a communist third world country under Hillary. Trump is doing away with the destruction Obama started.
No she got it wrong the liberal leftist Democrats came close to turning the our country into a socialist country just like her pals in Russia paided her for
Not like she would have done any Better. ..lmfao.... When it comes to the blame game.... she is the champion. .lol
I am not a Trumpatier, but I don’t think Hillary Clinton would have been any better. The Clintons have way to many skeletons in their closet and Trump is right there with them! He can’t keep up with his lies.
