Before heading to the school, Ramon killed his grandmother with two military-style rifles he purchased on his birthday, Gutierrez said.

“That was the first thing he did on his 18th birthday,” he said.

Apparently according to news stories the gunman was bullied and was angry because he didn't graduate .  Bloody tragic RIP

Yes the death toll is higher than originally reported and also indications that he was bullied. No laws will be changed. This is America.

You're right.  Absolutely nothing will change.  After Sandy Hook, I was naive to think that something would change...and it didn't.  Nothing will change in my lifetime.  Which means more dead people....guaranteed.

Citizens the FBI categorize as “terrorist sympathizers” residing on the FBI ‘no fly’ list can buy guns, thanks to Republican politicians with support from Fox scare media blocking any efforts to regulate guns sales.

I wonder why this is still in the news.

 

Everybody outside of America knows that Americans are crazy. They could have changed their gun laws hundreds of times. And they had enough shocking mass killings as reminders that they should do something. But they don't.

 

And inside America it seems most politicians are scared to implement harsh gun laws. Because if they would do that then lots of nutters wouldn't vote for them anymore.

 

Summary: There will be many more of these killings and basically nothing will change. That is America - a country with too many crazy people. 

 

A civil war will neutralize and maybe regain humanity in a different way, like in Europe, but we all know there is coming a larger world conflict so it might be it.
