School Shooting in Oklahoma

UPDATE Tuesday   Boy is identified, age 15.   No word yet on where he got the gun (probably just picked it up at home?).  No metal detectors on campus.  No reports of bullying, but now being looked at.  Was he sad or happy?  May have been "an outcast."  But again:  easy access to gun. Facebook tribute page.

Earlier:  Tragic, but this time not a mass shooting--but a student shooting and killing himself/herself in a bathroom.   Of course, often overlooked in the gun debate is how many suicides aided by guns--and how many might not have happened without that "easy" access.    Kid was a 9th grader.  No other students endangered (beyond the fact he had a gun in school).
