I know I would.  I would demand that we allow people to be committed to a mental hospital, provided they have some form of due process.  I would also demand that schools have armed guards, metal detectors and classroom doord that can be bolted from the inside in case of an active shooter.  I would demand that teachers, if properly trained and screened, be allowed to have a weapon if they so choose.  I would demand that we have an honest dialouge about what is happening in our culture that is causing young people to do this.  I would include the entertainment industry that glorifies violence in movies and video games, our culture of death, the role of social media and so on.  I would demand that the real statistics of gun violence be used in every debate.  I would demand that we look at the deaths of hundereds of young black males in cities that have stringent gun cotrol laws.

What I wouldn't do is to stupidly blame an inanimate object for the actions of a mentally deranged person any more than we would stupidly call for the banning of autos because drunks or terrorists use them to kill people.  I also wouldn't call for removing firearms from law abiding citizens because of their misuse by crazies.  

In essence, the govt media would never give me a minute of air time when they can use teenagers to advance their gun control agenda.
