The shooting started near the school. As far as we know, 2 children are injured after the gunman shot at the school after fleeing a nearby home. I live about 25 minutes from there. Still lots of information coming out about this. The children were flown up to Redding CA as they are the nearest trauma unit. I understand for one child it was a leg wound. The other child has 2 gunshot wounds but I am unclear as to where the other child’s injuries were. Both were flown by helicopter. One of the children was only 6 years old and I am unsure of the age of the second child. I have not heard of any children deceased at this time but like I said, more information is still coming out. They have 5+ crime scenes they are working right now.
This is sick. Who in their right mind would target children? I expect the media to blame whites, the gun, the NRA, Trump and republicans for this. I expect the media to sweep this under the rug if the shooter has a skin color other than white. I expect the leftists to bring up gun control, again. The shooter must be a real man/woman to be targeting children. I hope the shooter is caught, and if need be, turned into a human sprinkler.
As a parent this scares me to death. I kiss my babies goodbye in the morning, planning to have them return safe to me in the afternoon. Just a sad world we live in. Praying for all the ones effected by this.
There needs to be locked security doors like at the hospitals and you have to get buzzed in and that's only to the lobby. Only staff gets in thru the double doors to the children using a security code that changes daily. If a parent is picking up a child that child is sent out to meet them in the lobby. If a parent must go back they must show ID and prove their child is in the class their visiting and there again must be buzzed in to enter the classroom. Come on people this isn't complicated. Might cost a bit but it would be worth it to stop this craziness.
It is well passed the time where we need armed securing of schools.
Allow for at least administrators to be trained and armed, if not a handful of teachers that were prior service or law enforcement.
Are our children just not safe anywhere anymore? I feel like we’re living one never ending episode of the Walking Dead where there’s evil around every corner and there’s no more good in the world....
My heart and prayers go out to those families effected by this tragedy!!! No one should ever have to worry about their kids dying at school
I would feel a lot better if I knew at least one teacher was armed at my kids school so they can protect our children police can only do so much
Guns are legal in schools and CA has the strictest gun laws. How does this happen? Criminals do not follow the law. When are people going to learn?
I have one question. Why do they always shoot them dead. Makes me wonder. Too many going on. Looks like try to get gun laws enforced. Why kids?
