I Realize Mental Illness is Involved

...but still, how does one end up thinking that going into a classroom, shooting up a bunch of people, and then killing yourself is a good idea?

Today's shooting at Northern Illinois was senseless, tragic, stupid, and wholly unpreventable barring the institution of a police state. Besides expressing my condolences, whatever they're worth, I don't know what else to say.

UPDATE: A UofI student was the gunman.

We'll see more sadness on Friday when the newspaper wits start wondering how the university could have allowed this to happen.

It'll probably be as if most of the nattering nitwits will forget how their own colleges were open campuses, and for the most part had to be. Oh well, hopefully the levels of stupid won't get too high.

"The stupid" is going to come from anti-gun and pro-gun interest groups. Both of them jump onto things like this.
