Instead of honoring ANOTHER dead student by having vigils in his honor, how about we honor them by doing all we can to make him the LAST student who has to die that way?

 

BAN AUTOMATIC AND SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPONS that can fire more than 8 times. If the cowardly little cretins that seek glory by slaughtering their classmates do not have the firepower to kill many, only being able to kill a few will make it unlikely they'll risk their worthless lives.

The young man was heroic, and sacrificed for others...sound like anyone that you know! @williamb39198.........if awards were given, I would say you get the prize for taking this story in ever possible direction. I'd give you an award as well, William for seeing the bigger story.  Most here have acknowledged the heroic actions of this young man...GREAT now what?  The bigger story is school shootings and the even bigger story is far too easy access to guns.  IN NC. like most states, one can walk into a gun show and purchase a gun without any background check; is that OK? Obviously, this issue has been swept under the rug by most on the right for years.  Thanks for keeping your sight on the bigger issue.....we don't need more distractions from the NRA adoration club.

-The young man was very heroic in his actions

-A gun was involved in the shooting, which makes it a gun issue

-Why would it not be Christian to take a stand on the gun issue?

-It was noted that the gun issue was a constitutional issue not religious...really?

Hasn’t the religious right been wanting to have more say in politics and constitutional issues...conservative court appointments, revoke Women’s rights to deny having say concerning their own bodies, to make money from religion while keeping their tax exempt status, which means that American taxpayers are supporting and help pay support for religions and their properties, and personal incomes...is that a form of socialism?

You only needed to throw in the kitchen sink. I think you take away from this real story of this young man's heroic sacrifice. It was about HIM! Don't you get that? It was not about abortion, religious beliefs, tax status, properties, personal incomes or socialism. I don't understand why some can't read an article and just accept it. I bet the family of this young man would not feel so good reading all this rant. I see complaints about taking off topic, but some do it regularly, but them have a cow if I ever do.

Interesting.  You wrote what you thought were reasonable questions and received honest and real answers....all "adult-like".  And as usual, you choose to ignore them.  That's ok, it's not unusual.  The questions were just bait anyway.

 

To quote Mitch McConnell, "Case Closed".

 

 

But MOST know, "Case Closed" was NEVER a finding in the Mueller Report as McConnell falsely claims.  Another GOP leader LIE!


I don't think McConnell was referring to the events in NC.  So? Many understand quotes can be used anectdotally anywhere, even in North Carolina to Florida.  Do you really think a cartoon Pedro, with the Tar Heel tatoo  lives in South Carolina?

 

Where is Judge Judy when you need her??  Oh, she's confused as to why one prefers to play in the rabbit hole.  I'll let her know you were asking about her.

Yes , what an uplifting story about a current day hero placing himself in harms way for the benifit of others. Yes he is a hero.



@Soosie @TxGrandpa2 , @rk9152 , pay no attention to the very stale bait thas has been thrown in. It’s not worthy of a response.



Have a great evening! @Jim and rk9152.............I try to avoid answering some posts just because they are not adult enough to consider. I have been on Facebook where AARP is trying to convenience the posters there they are not partisan. I find it interesting that AARP cannot make the connection of this site to their need to try to get members on Facebook. Allowing all Liberal views on any AARP site can hurt membership. So many negative responses on Facebook about the promised bags, double and triple billing and the very Liberal leanings.

My comment................We need good stories like this for the Carolinas........Any North Carolina posters in this group?????


You know there is.

 

Just look at my userid.

 

Riley Howell was also honored in another way. As he was a ROTC cadet, he was buried with FULL MILITARY HONORS.

 

The sad thing is that another student dies today in another state attempting to tackle a shooter just as Riley had done.

 

We need to do something about guns and security at our schools. It may cost a fortune but our youth shouldn't have to be scared to go to school.

 

Addressing guns in school only addresses a part of the problem  Address guns period and it will address guns in schools, shopping malls, work places, etc.  We need a bigger net.  All ages matter.

 

"Are there posters in North Carolina?"  I LOL when I read that.
