Jared Padgett's parents are right to apologize. He took the life of an innocent peer, wounded a teacher and traumatized 3000 students. But, what would have really made a difference is the Padgetts not making two semi-automatic weapons and an arsenal's worth of ammunition available to their children. We need foresight more than hindsight.


My heart goes out to the victims and the family of the shooter. Sad for all involved.
