Red Lake, MN massacre Mar 21, 2005

From Wikipedia:

The Red Lake massacre was an incident of spree killing on March 21, 2005 that occurred in two places on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Red Lake, Minnesota, United States. That morning, 16-year-old Jeffrey Weise killed his grandfather (a tribal police officer) and his grandfather's girlfriend at their home. After taking his grandfather's police weapons and vest, Weise drove his grandfather's police vehicle to Red Lake Senior High School, where he had been a student some months before.

Weise shot and killed seven people at the school, and wounded five others. The dead included an unarmed security guard at the entrance of the school, then a teacher and five students. After the police arrived, Weise exchanged gunfire with them. He was wounded and then committed suicide in a vacant classroom.

  1. Absolutely. This was travesty and is repeated in various horrific acts all over the USA daily if not hourly.
    (However, my secret little fantasy is someone taking out Trump.)

  3. It is very dangerous to have guns available to any and everyone. Mental illness is not rare - it is common.
