It is a horrible act, and it is deeply saddening.
I don't think we will really be able to put an end to this senseless violence anytime soon.
People may turn to gun laws to see to it that it will "never" happen again, but criminals don't abide by the laws.
I just cannot imagine what these families are going through. Losing a loved one is always hard, but it is worse when its close to a holiday, my thoughts are with them all.
