    That Reddit feed is fierce! Serious respect to this kid for keeping everyone informed.

    And now the AP just reported that the suspect just died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    Very sad, especially right before Christmas. :(

    The shooter took his life inside the school. Same county as Columbine.

    Local news at 9news.com is still streaming live coverage. Looks like their site is being overwhelmed by hits. It's down for me.

    According to CNN, the shooter was a student who intended to confront a teacher. He shot himself (CNN says the sheriff says).

    Sad but I think the school will be closed at least till January now when classes would normally resume. They still had another week to go.

    If only guns weren't so widely available, this wouldn't have happened right?

    We could always restrict the gun arguments to the other active threads until we know at least a little about what has happened here.

    Sadly it probably needs to come to this.

    Not that we need to discount the tragic loss of life, but the sensationalized 24/7 media coverage about shootings (and their anniversaries - Newtown) do more harm than good once they get passed informing people and go off the rails.

    I know you're being sarcastic, but....probably not. When was the last time there was a school shooting in, say, the UK?

    Dunblane in 1996, although that wasn't a pupil. I don't remember any school shootings since then.

    Horrible news. Even if ones accepts guns, there must be ways of keeping them out of the hands of unstable teenagers....

    This is so common now, you can probably place bets with a bookie on which school is next.

    This is the price we have decided is worth paying to keep our "right" to own guns. Hope the gun nuts are happy.

    Now for the sentence I removed earlier:

    Makes you wonder where the people who voted for the recall of of the lawmakers who voted for their gun control law, or those here who supported their recall.

    They seem to very silent. I wonder why; could they possibly have been wrong? If not, this is the fruit of their "success".

    Right. Don't blame the shooter. Blame society.

    The gun legislation that was passed didn't affect shotguns which was used in today's shooting.

    The gun nuts are going to continue to try to make guns illegal. They're never happy.

    Plus you can't blame guns for this, this person decided to do that. If he didn't with a gun he would have used something else.
