Another sad shooting on one of the country’s best holidays, he posted many online rants about shooting people, and dying at the hands of the police. His family refusing help from a school and deciding to home school him, Illinois shooting suspect was ‘known to law enforcement’ | Watch ( The left Democrats cry band the guns in less than a day after the shooting. For those of you who have forgotten the Las Vegas Police had a worst shooting some years ago in a high rise building during a big concert. Hats off to the Secret Service and the NYPD who put police snipers on tall buildings to prevent someone hurting the president or other people during special events. Guess New York has more high-rise buildings than most small towns that think it will never happen here! It is the same thinking with the schools, cost too much money to secure the doors or invest in active shooter software systems like we did after 911. Have not had another high jacking since then but we sure spent a lot of money on an outfit called TSA! When we will start spending money to prevent mental cases from doing stuff like this, putting them in a data base if they every try to buy a gun, spend money on our police departments, and security at our schools nothing will change. We talk about it a lot but never seen to get it done. Maybe if we quit sending so much money to other countries, we might have enough to spend on America!
