The shooter was most likely a paranoid schizophrenic who did not get the proper mental health treatment, but did have excellent access to automatic weapons. It would seem the best response to this violence — so similar to many other episodes we have seen on high school, college and military campuses over the years — would be to increase funding for social services in general, mental health in particular, while banning automatic assault weapons. Actually, I would go farther and repeal the Second Amendment, because it is a useless piece of shit that does more harm than good; but that movement has no traction in America, so I’ll compromise.

One last thing: Sarah Palin is an idiot. But you knew that.

Spread the joy:
