Cleveland School Shooting Being Investigated

A shooting at the SuccessTech school in Cleveland today left the 14-year old shooter dead, and four others -- two adults and two teenagers-- wounded. Early reports are indicating the youth was troubled, had been suspended on Monday for fighting and was not even supposed to be in the school. Early reports from police say some of the victims appear to have been targeted. I'm sure we're going to be hearing more on this, including from the Brady Bunch and others. My prayers go out to the families of the wounded and the assailant. I have no doubt there will be calls for more gun control, even though schools are already gun-free zones in which criminals have free reign and no one is permitted the tools to stop this criminality and carnage. Maybe one day teachers and/or administrators will receive the authority to take care of these problems instead of waiting for police to save them all. Maybe . . .
