Psychologist: Florida Shooting Suspect Nikolas Cruz Showed Many Warning Signs | Megyn Kelly TODAY


>>>FIVE YEARS AGO, THIS COUNTRY SAW A DEVASTATING MASS SCHOOL SHOOTING AT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT. MANY, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, BELIEVED SINCERELY THAT THAT WOULD BE THE BREAKING POINT IN DEALING WITH MENTAL HEALTH AND GUNS. BUT SADLY AS WE HAVE WITNESSED YET AGAIN, WE ARE STILL SEEING YOUNG MEN IN PARTICULAR STRUGGLE AND DOING VERY LITTLE, IF ANYTHING, ABOUT IT. AFTER NEWTOWN, SOME OF THE FAMILIES THERE FORMED SANDY HOOK PROMISE, VOWING TO TURN THAT TRAGEDY INTO A MOMENT OF TRANSFORMATION. THEY MADE A PSA THAT HAS A CHILLING MESSAGE. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS. PLEASE WATCH THIS. [ BELL RINGING ] * I GOT SOME NEWS TODAY * FROM THE RADIO MAN * HE SPOKE THE WORDS SOMBER AND AS SOFTLY AS HE CAN * * THE WORLD STOOD STILL * AND THE SKY OPENED UP * I MADE MY WAY TO FILL UP MY COFFEE CUP * * THEN IT OCCURRED TO ME AS THE DAYLIGHT SKIES SHONE BLUE * * TODAY’S THE DAY THAT JOHNNY MET YOU * * HE WAITED AWHILE * HE KNEW THAT HE WOULD * HE WAS GOING TO HANG AROUND HERE FOR AS LONG AS HE COULD * * THE DAYS WENT BY * AND HOURS THAT HAVE PASSED * HE WAS NEVER SURE JUST HOW LONG HE WOULD LAST * * BUT THERE’S NOT MUCH LOVE IN A LONELY ROOM * * TODAY’S THE DAY THAT JOHNNY MET YOU *>>HAVE A GOOD SUMMER.>>YOU TOO.>>THANKS.>>HEY, THIS IS THE GUY THAT I RAN INTO AT THE LIBRARY.>>GUILTY.>>SO YOU LIKE TO WRITE ON DESKS.>>YEAH, THAT’S WHAT I DO. [ SCREAMING ] * NOW WE’RE STARTING OVER * OH HOW I STILL LOVE TO HEAR YOU SING * * OH AND EVERYTHING YOU EVER HEARD ABOUT IS TRUE * * TODAY’S THE DAY THAT JOHNNY MET JUNE * * TODAY’S THE DAY THAT JOHNNY MET JUNE *>>IT’S POWERFUL, RIGHT? WE’RE CONTINUING OUR DISCUSSION WITH PSYCHOLOGIST JENNIFER HARTSTEIN AND PSYCHOTHERAPIST AND FAMILY COUNSELOR TOM KERSTEIN. SANDY HOOK PROMISE IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION THAT — THEY’RE NOT ANTI-GUN, THEY’RE ANTI-VIOLENCE AGAINST OUR STUDENTS AND OUR KIDS. AND THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO DRAW ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING. THE WARNING SIGNS WITH RESPECT TO A PARTICULAR INDIVIDUAL. THEY’RE NOT JUST NO GUNS. IT’S LOOK AT THIS KID AND HIS FOCUS ON THEM, HE WAS BULLIED. THIS IS THE KID IN EVAN, IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT ON YOUTUBE, IT’S CALLED EVAN. YOU CAN SEE IT IN FLORIDA ALREADY, FACEBOOK POSTINGS WITH GUNS AND OTHER WEAPONS, THE THREATENING LANGUAGE. HE WAS EXPELLED FROM THE SCHOOL. CLEARLY THE SCHOOL SAW AN ISSUE WITH THIS GUY.>>AND LOOKING AT HIS HISTORY, RIGHT, HE’S LOST BOTH HIS PARENTS. I THINK I READ THAT HIS DAD DIED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, HIS MOM RECENTLY DIED SO HERE HE IS ALONE. WHAT OTHER HISTORY DID HE HAVE, JUST KIND OF GRIEVING OF THAT. WAS THERE BULLYING? THERE’S A LOT OF WARNING SIGNS IN THAT VIDEO ARE THINGS THAT WE’VE BEEN HEARING A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN. SO WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT HOW THAT IS IMPACTING OUR BOYS ESPECIALLY, BECAUSE NO ONE IS ENCOURAGING YOUNG MEN TO BE TALKING ABOUT THAT STUFF SO WE KIND OF PUSH IT ASIDE AND THAT’S REALLY AN ISSUE.>>THE THING IS YOU LOOK AT THE WARNING SIGNS IN EVAN, THE SANDY HOOK PROMISE VIDEO, THEY WERE HERE. THEY APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN HERE IN FLORIDA. AND YET HE WAS FREE. HE WAS NOT GETTING THE HELP HE NEEDED, OBVIOUSLY. AND SO THE QUESTION IS, OKAY, A, WHAT ARE THOSE SIGNS OFFICIALLY, LET’S TALK ABOUT IT. AND THEN B, WHAT CAN WE DO?>>WHAT’S PERPLEXING IS ALL OF THE STORIES OF STUDENTS THAT YOU HEAR POSTING THINGS SAY THEY KNEW THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL WAS CAPABLE OF THIS. SO THERE WERE PLENTY OF SIGNS THERE. SO WHAT WE NEED TO DO, ANYBODY LISTENING RIGHT NOW, ESPECIALLY PARENTS AND SCHOOLS, WE HAVE TO EMPOWER OUR KIDS THAT IF THEY SEE — WE HEAR THE TERM SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING, BUT IT’S GOT TO BE MORE THAN THAT. IF THERE’S SOMETHING THAT’S NOT JIVING RIGHT, THEY HAVE TO BRING THAT TO THE ATTENTION OF AN ADULT SO THEY CAN LOOK INTO THIS, INVESTIGATE IT AND PREVENT A TRAGEDY LIKE THIS FROM HAPPENING.>>I WONDER IF WE NEED A NATIONAL RESOURCE CENTER WHERE IT’S A NUMBER THAT YOU CAN CALL AND WE HAVE EXPERTS WHO PROFILE, FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM, WHAT THEY — I MEAN YOU LOOK AT VIRGINIA TECH, HE WAS A 23-YEAR-OLD STUDENT. NEWTOWN, HE WAS A 19-YEAR-OLD YOUNG MAN. HERE IT’S A 19-YEAR-OLD.>>AND YOU THINK IT’S A COMBINATION OF TWO ISSUES, RIGHT, THAT WE ARE STRUGGLING WITH. ONE IS THE MENTAL HEALTH PIECE OF THIS AND ONE IS GUN CONTROL AND ACCESS TO GUNS AND ALL OF THAT. SO THERE ARE TWO SIMULTANEOUS AND PARALLEL ARGUMENTS. THE ISSUE FOR ME AS A PSYCHOTHERAPIST IS HOW DO I MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT STABLE MENTALLY, WHO ARE NOT THINKING CLEARLY OR MAKING GOOD DECISIONS DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO THE THING THAT CAN KILL SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE. THAT’S WHERE WE’RE HAVING A CHALLENGE. IN NEW YORK, IF I BELIEVE THAT SOMEONE IS SUICIDAL, I CAN CALL A REGISTRY AND SAY THIS PERSON NEEDS TO GO ON A NO GUN LIST BECAUSE THEY COULD BE AT RISK FOR HURTING THEMSELVES, BUT IT’S NOT A NO GUN LIST BECAUSE I THINK THEY’RE AT RISK FOR HURTING SOMEONE ELSE.>>THERE’S ANOTHER PIECE TO THIS ALSO THAT REALLY WILL RESONATE. WORLD WAR I, THE AVERAGE COMBAT SOLDIER, ONLY 10% OF COMBAT SOLDIERS WERE CAPABLE OF PULLING A TRIGGER AT POINT BLANK RANGE. BY VIETNAM, 80% WERE. THE DIFFERENCE WAS THE TARGETS THEY USED DURING WORLD WAR I WERE PAPER TARGETS AND THE ONE THEY USED TO TRAIN FOR VIETNAM WERE SILHOUETTES. THINK OF THE DESENSITIZATION. NOW LOOK AT KIDS PLAYING FIRST SHOOTER VIDEO GAMES, BEING EXPOSED TO VIOLENT CONTENT ALL DAY LONG. THINK ABOUT HOW THEIR MIND IS ABSORBING THAT AND PERHAPS THAT PLAYS INTO WHY WE’RE HAVING THESE TYPES OF THINGS HAPPEN.>>I FEEL LIKE IT HAS TO BE AN ALL-IN APPROACH. NOW YOU’RE GOING TO GET HIT BY THE GAMING INDUSTRY. PLENTY OF HEALTHY KIDS PLAY THEM AND DON’T KILL ANYBODY. WE’VE HAD GUNS FOREVER AND MOST PEOPLE USE THEM AND DON’T KILL ANYBODY. MENTALLY UNWELL PEOPLE, MOST OF THEM DON’T. WE GET ALL THAT. WE GET ALL THAT.>>ALL OF THAT IS TRUE.>>TALKING ABOUT A PICTURE, A PICTURE OF SOMEBODY WHO ALL THE EVIDENCE IN RAISES A RED FLAG. IF WE DON’T GET HONEST ABOUT WHAT THOSE RED FLAGS ARE, WE’RE GOING TO STAY IN THE SAME POSITION THAT WE’VE BEEN IN, YOU KNOW. ENOUGH. I WAS AT FOX NEWS FOR 13 YEARS. I UNDERSTAND VERY WELL HOW PRO SECOND AMENDMENT PEOPLE FEEL, HOW THE NRA FEELS. IT’S NOT ABOUT BLAMING THEM. IT’S ABOUT GETTING THEM IN ON THE PROBLEM. AND THE MENTAL HEALTH, THE ACLU ON THE OTHER SIDE. YES, PEOPLE HAVE RIGHTS NOT TO BE INVOLUNTARILY COMMITTED, NOT TO HAVE THEIR RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY WHEN THEY SHOW SIGNS OF MENTAL ILLNESS. BUT CAN’T WE HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT THE SOLUTIONS ARE SO WE DON’T END UP WITH ANOTHER 17 DEAD KIDS AT ANOTHER SCHOOL NEXT WEEK.>>AND DON’T OUR KIDS THAT WE SEND TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY HAVE RIGHTS TO BE SAFE? DON’T THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO TO SCHOOL AND FEEL SAFE?>>TODAY I’M TOLD THAT IN OUR AUDIENCE, OUR AUDIENCE WHO ARE AMAZING, YOU GUYS, THANK YOU FOR SITTING WITH US IN A SHOW YOU PROBABLY WEREN’T EXPECTING TO SEE, THERE IS A WOMAN NAMED VALERIE WHO — HI. IS IT TRUE THAT YOU ARE A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER AT THIS SCHOOL IN FLORIDA?>>I SUBSTITUTE FOR BROWARD COUNTY, YES, INCLUDING DOUGLAS. BOTH OF MY BOYS GRADUATED FROM DOUGLAS.>>DID YOU KNOW THIS SHOOTER?>>NO. NO, I DID NOT. WE’RE, YOU KNOW, ON PINS AND NEEDLES WAITING TO HEAR THE NAMES RELEASED. PARKLAND IS A FAIRLY SMALL TOWN.>>OF THE VICTIMS, YOU MEAN?>>YEAH. SO CHANCES ARE WE’LL RECOGNIZE SOME OF THE NAMES.>>THIS SCHOOL HAS BEEN GREAT ABOUT DRILLS.>>YEAH. THEY’RE WONDERFUL. IT’S A VERY SECURE SCHOOL. I HONESTLY DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW THE SHOOTER WAS ABLE TO GET IN. THEY DO A GREAT JOB LOCKING THE GATES AND YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH OFFICE FOR ENTRY. YOU KNOW, IT’S A MYSTERY TO ME HOW HE WAS ABLE TO GET ON CAMPUS.>>HE WAS YOUNG, RIGHT, SO YOU LOOK LIKE YOU BELONG THERE.>>HE WOULD FIT IN, SURE.>>AND THAT’S THE THING. EVEN IF WE SPEND ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD MAKING OUR SCHOOLS INTO FORTRESSES, THERE’S GOING TO BE A WAY. EVEN IF WE BAN EVERY GUN IN THE COUNTRY, A KILLER WILL USE A TRUCK OR USE SOMETHING ELSE, A BOMB, AND SO WE HAVE TO START HAVING REAL HONEST DISCUSSIONS ABOUT HOW TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES AND THE CHILDREN YOU TEACH. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TODAY.>>THANK YOU, MEGYN.

  1. What? 39 calls to the police, twce to the FBI. Even Cruz called police and say he will do something horrible because he doesn't feel well psychologically. Where was police? FBI? Bunch of idiots 😠😠😠. They killed those kids by doing nothing. Bunch of a$$es

  2. America's mass murder problem runs deep. America is not a society designed for human beings. It is built in the image of corporate power – its needs, its structures, its values. Human needs and values are suppressed. Basic human needs of safety and belonging are not supported, but instead used as tools of control. Natural empathy is driven out of children by such things as spanking, the tolerance of bullying, strong high school cliques of in-group and out-group, over emphasis on loyalty to school sports teams, funding schools from local taxes, fraternities with humiliating initiations, draconian sentencing and mass incarceration, prosecuting children as adults (really American WTF), state sanctioned killing, militarism, inner cities left to rot, constant media portrayal of the violent tough guy as winner, and the demonization of the poor by the media.

  3. Ummm why don’t we just start using metal detectors in all schools ??? And bag checks ? Problem solved

  6. I am sorry but if this was young black boys shooting up schools……….. they would not be having that discussion in the way they are, and they DAMNED sure would have no sentimental video… WTF….!

  7. aparently the school system is producing the shooters . the only thing different is how and what the school systems are teaching , people had guns 50 years ago and no schools shot up be students the national guardsmen shot up some students at schools but students were not shooting up schools .

  8. He asked a good question about video game violence and made a great statistical point when he mentioned the increase in decencitization. All the host did was raise her voice and go to break lol. She didn't really want a discussion like she claims otherwise she wouldn't have put on a show of emotion simoly to show her support for the enraged, but being enraged doesn't solve the problem. He pointed to a real cause and effect that could change the psychology of many people. And I know it's not the only cause but I myself have concern over what's going into my own child's head through YouTube videos. I think people fail to understand the real impact content plays on the mind once heard, read, seen or felt. This is the deep stuff of life. But like they say hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil. Why do they say that? Because as above so below. What goes into the mind, comes out or has to be worked out. Your mind will show publicly. So why do we allow violent killing video games? It makes us tough right? Don't get mad about this if you're not really capable of seeing causes or solutions that emotions can blind you from and this video is a great example of how the emotions can block us from getting real solutions, real answers, or real causes and therefore from getting the desired results. Don't bring your emotions into the market. She's just an actor, not a scholar who thinks.

  9. This host needs fired. Seriously, no one cares what she has to say – all she did was too her horn. She's like I'm Fox News, I'm fully aware of how the NRA feels blah blah blah lol, If you really listen, she was a waste of time to bring these educated people onto her show and waste their time. They're more about solutions than she is. Otherwise she would've listened to the guy's points and stats. She just blew him off. Sad. And then we wonder why

  10. They DID say something! There's more debt than currency. There's no future.You're guilty if you're a normal average person. Nobody is being taught accountability. Nobody suffers for consequence of hurting others. No accountability to the golden rule or God. Young people aren't taught to earn respect instead that its owed to them. Social justice and the inequality lies will destroy us as it was intended by your handlers.

  11. I m not an American but don't you think it's impossible to find people who is suffering from mental illness and give them treatment and avoid situations like this. Just control gun it's possible , only give to them whose life is in dangerous. In my country to get gun you have to get permission from court you have prove your life is in danger. In my life I have seen gun only once at police station when I went there as school trip. Police man gave one gun and ask us to touch it. May be America is a militarised country if you control gun you might lose some profits even revenue because of that they are not controlling.

  12. That's a powerful small film at the beginning my heart felt like it stopped beating. So sorry for the people lost.

  13. At last someone talking about the military point and shoot games that trained soldiers not to think twice before shooting another human. Very grim and sociopathic games for yougsters. Meghan skated by that and launched into her rehearsed and apparently emotional lecture, not responding to what her guest said.

  14. I like this video from Sandy hook promise… there are always signs just some are less obvious than others and sometimes it takes a trained eye to see them… as a school psychologist I believe that you can’t hide in your office all day you need to walk around, sit in classrooms, observe what is going on during lunch and recess… you would be amaze of the things that go on… unfortunately most schools don’t have a school psychologist everyday, (schools share them) and they are testing machines, there needs to be more interaction with the kids and the kids should know who you are and that you are available to talk to them anytime! The school system need to worry less about common core and put some focus into metal health especially when student are going through changes…. middle school and high school causes great anxiety on many students and the new feelings and situations they are going through has consequences.

  15. What lack of funding for education? We spend more on education than any other country in the world.Hollywood puts out violent movies.Our culture values money and possessions ahead of relationships.We do not teach values in the schools

  16. Answer my questions
    1.why is there reports of multiple shooters by multiple witnesses
    2.why does teacher describe shooter in full police uniform who shot at her
    3.why is there a drill of the same thing on the same day of all these shootings
    4.why is it always ar15 fault when hand guns are the same press trigger 1 bullet comes out u can get 30 round magazine for hand guns so why ban ar15
    5.why no cctv footage at these shootings but always is in shop robberies
    6.how come there is 20 plus minutes erased on the cctv footage they do have but won't show
    7.what difference does it make banning guns cocaine is illegal but I can buy it on most street corners so how will banning guns stop this it won't guns illegal in uk but shot guns are legal does UK have mass killings with shot guns no
    8.raising age of gun from 18 to 21 what will that do suddenly at 21 your mental health is fine and you can't do school shootings no
    9.i can't understand how so many differences in what happened

  17. Going to be honest, I know kids that could potentially be “school shooters”, for example, antisocial, gun obsessed kids, but what if I say something, and the kids innocent, but he gets his life ruined due to me reporting him?

  18. That was a very powerful video ! America we need to wake up an accept Mental Health as real problem in this country… When will we do this ?

  19. The Sandy Hook promise charity fraud! Wow! Amazing how many crimes these people are willing to commit. At Sandy Hook no one was shot; no one was injured; and no one was killed. Nothing more than a DHS drill promoted as real by the main stream media all for the usual suspects. Amazing what depth of deception Megyn Kelly is willing to go! She is nothing more than a propagandist!

  20. That's the problem… Too many DUMB PEOPLE in America (like this bottle blond, as host and facilitator), trying to impact and rubber stamp her guests – regardless théir ideas, as important contributions to America's spesific problem!!
    *E.G. — WHEN TOM RAISED A VERY INTERESTING ISSUE – AND EVENTUALLY POINTS OUT WHAT INFLUENCE E-GAMES CAN HAVE ON KIDS'S DEVELOPMENT.., AND THEIR PERSEPTION ON VALUES AND RESPECT OF OTHERS… THAT INCOMPETENT BLOND, IMMEDIATELY MENTIONED SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT: OF HIM, BECOMING A POSSIBLE TARGET AND THE RIPPLE HE'LL CAUSE – REGARDING THE OWNERS AND PRODUCERS OF E-GAME EQUIPMENT – AND RELEVANT INTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY… SO – SHE THEN CHANGED THE SUBJECT..!!

    WHY?? #MONEY.!! (INTER ALIA – AND MORE #MONEY!!)… AND DON'T FORGET THE ROLE, NEWS AGENCIES PLAY – WHEN EAGERLY REPORTING ON SHOOTINGS!!! ☝… So once again… Will this shooting also later be looked upon as a 'statistic' — or will it change things, that will lead to solutions!?? FRANKLY: "I DON'T THINK SO"….

    Ironically – as I wrote this… I heard the news of that 9 year old — that just shot his sister!! Now how on earth did he get hold of a gun!!??? Motive?? Him and his sister had a argument about their e-game controllers!! HOW APPLICABLE IS THIS — TO WHAT I'VE MENTIONED HERE ABOVE.!?? *IN PRINCIPLE.., SUPPORTING TOM'S ARGUMENT ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF SOMETHING SO SIMPLE AS: E-GAME INTERTAINMENT!!! *BUT WILL AMERICA LEARN FROM THIS? YOU KNOW THE ANSWER…

    IT'S P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C.!!!

  21. I would like to see these experts interviewed by someone who isn't clamouring for applause with her hair on fire. Her over-dramatization was ridiculous, and completely distracted from the interview. I suppose that's what one learns from Fox "News". "They'll use trucks." What a joke. I live in a country with strict gun laws and I have never heard of a fellow citizen being murdered intentionally with a truck. That's the worst argument for keeping guns I've ever heard, and also bloody hilarious.

  22. False….it's against the law to diagnose anyone you haven't actually seen. If she didn't examine him she can't diagnose him. That's federal law.

  23. There is nothing anyone can do to stop this. Just be prepared for the next one. Be aware of your surroundings. You cant stop this problem. It will never end. You can only be prepared to save yourself.

  24. It seems if they cared about the boy, they would keep calling FBI to do something …..kids can be cruel, gang up on the loser …..
    all these officials were told but did nothing !

  25. If I was in charge, I would make respect for human life, anger management, mental health and outreach a foundation to K-12 Education.

  26. Hi Megyn, I am glad you are trying to help solve the problem. The NRA is not the problem. On the contrary, the NRA is usually the only one bringing technical knowledge to the table. After a shooting, Gun Control Advocates will blame the NRA because they oppose bans on AR-15s and so-called "assault weapons." The NRA opposes such measures because said firearms are nothing more than semi-auto rifles with one or more features e.g. a pistol grip. Then the NRA will be accused of invoking the slippery slope argument. Then, any proposals the NRA does make are dismissed as stupid e.g. armed teachers and or security in schools, and better background checks.

  27. I been through a lot. I understand a lot. I can understand someone's mind clicking, and in rage/anger/resentment/jealousy, etc. going off. Even killing people. What I cannot grasp is something in someone's mind clicking and they take a year, at least, and plan and plot and premeditate to go off. It makes no sense.

  28. "Let's get honest." Oh you naive and hypocritical millionaire. Everything about American is designed as a lie. From the food, to the entertainment, to the schools, to the jobs, to the wars, to the diplomacy, etc. Everything. Good luck getting Americans…um….honest. LOL

  29. Just more brainwashing and mind control all of these kids now a days are on anti depressants and all these medications i got family like that once they start the medications they become crazy and start too see things and their life is over Wake up

  30. No disrespect intended, but in the aftermath of a tragedy, there's always people who'll claim that they "suspected all along".

  31. Bullies are protected and that's a fact. You can argue with me all day, but I am a witness. When you have kids who are admitting they bullied a shooter, and when you have school admins (2 within a 15sq mile area that I live in) that deny or refuse to release records about bullied students there is a problem. Im not saying all school shootings are bully situations nor am I making an excuse for retaliation. But believe me when I tell you..bullies are protected. My guess, and it's just a guess, it's because these schools are public schools and ultimately the state is liable. When you put a state agency in a community court, well..I know how it goes.

  32. I know the second amendment gives the right to bare arms. I like the way they do it in Ontario, Canada. You must take a course in gun safety called a P A L. You take a course that requires each to pass a written test and a practical exam where you demonstrate that you know how to handle guns. Then your marks are sent to the Mounted Police, which would be like our FBI. There a review takes place ensuring you have never been in trouble with the law, kicked out of school, they review everything! They check Facebook and all social media. Only if you have nothing on your record will you receive a license to carry shotguns and rifles. If you want to carry a pistol you are scrutinized even more and you must take a course to carry a restricted firearm for this.
    What is really great is that scans are done every day through a database of all people who have this PAL or RPAL to make sure you haven't committed an offence. If you do end up with an offence you are flagged and local police will confiscate your firearms and ammunition. Maybe this could help prevent these senseless shootings

  33. I know 2 people that collect disability due to mental psychological issues and they were able to purchase a gun with no issue. This is the problem that needs to be corrected. They should not be able to purchase a gun with those issues.

  34. Sandy hoax.
    I remember the first mass school shooting, Kent State, Ohio, May 4, 1970.
    2A is not only a right but also a responsibility, personal responsibility is something being sadly lacking these days.
    My guess is it will take a mass die off for balance to be restored. It appears that those who are clamoring the most for protection are the ones who would refuse the responsibility of doing so.
    I carry every day with the dread of having to use force ever again. Yet it is a responsibility to myself I alone am accountable for, if you refuse to protect yourself why expect that someone else will.
    While I too would like to live in a world of peace and love, rainbows and butterflies, please tell me when ever has that been so?
    Never!
    Our current time has been filled with war and strife, violence and hate, yet it is the most stable we have been able to achieve.
    Sadly those who would have you believe they have the answer to ending the violence by legislating stricter gun control are contributing to the hate and violence through negligence and refusal to protect thier own selves.

    Like sheep to the slaughter they will only realize thier fate when they smell the blood of those who died before them.

  35. Signs were heard.
    Cruz was referred to the "Promise program" instead of law enforcement; a fact the district has denied until recently.

  36. Since we can't get to the ultimate cause of a shooter, mental disturbance from biology or from conditioning. Megyn's right. Forego some human rights so that shooting tragedies can be averted, if not prevented. Develop social apps so that people can identify who shouldn't be allowed to buy a gun. Then put mental health tests in place so that the identified person can prove their ability to own a firearm. It's far from perfect, but far better than letting American kids get slaughtered at school.

  37. But only pat attention if the kid seems like a threat. If you actually try to make amends with some of these abused kids abandoned by society you might actually have solved the problem. But we dont want to do that do we

  38. Sometimes there is no making sense of anything, some people just want to watch the world burn.

  39. Who at the NSA is being arrested for torturing him with NSA signals, EMF, ELF, radiation, brain scans and psychotronic weapons? Americans expect the psychopaths at the NSA that conduct this torture and interrogation to be arrested immediately. Torture and interrogation is ILLEGAL.

  40. Why are these mental health professionals saying they're not against civilians owning guns . Could it be that they are getting kickbacks from the NRA? Just a thought .

  41. Megyn had time today!!!! She was passionate!!! I stopped mid video to sit with my son to discuss “signs” I can’t imagine this kind of loss. My gawd

  42. there are no sustained interest in helping kids who are disturbed. this young man was demon possessed and cried out for help.

  43. wow imagine if this was a person of color, there would be no psychological evaluation on TODAY lmao these people are trying to justify some white kids actions

  44. There’s a lot of weird kids out there, doesn’t mean all of them will shoot up a school. It’s unpredictable.

  45. Well I don't Like School Shootings Either, If It Happened In Those Schools In Virginia, Conn, Penn, etc, etc, It could Happen Anywhere Else, Every-time I see School Bus's driving down my Street Or See a School Bus beside my Car, I would say a Silent Prayer that Those Kids in that School Bus makes it to school and comes home safely.

  46. Guns are just the weapon. It is the person we need to focus on. I believe he s schizophrenic. I believe he showed signs of this from a very early age

  47. parents just stop having guns in your house with your kids having access to them. just keep guns out of your house. and most have bad childhoods too. cuz if they didnt they wouldnt do this. problem solved

  48. imo, kids who bullied someone to the point of the person becoming a school shooter are equally guilty than the shooter themselves.

  49. been bullied to the point of depression and nope never ever did I have the tiniest thought of violence at all

  50. I love how when a white kid shoots up a school they have talks like this but if it's a POC they just brush it off as "ghetto"

  51. This video makes me want to go shoot the kids at school. The shier amount of phonyness… is terrorizing. Luckily I've got my Misfits records and Quake I&II.

  52. He dolphined those bullies and innocent kids around him. Every time a kid does this, every bully who knows a kid like this gets chills. While you can block his name from ever being spoken in media again, he sent his message. If bullying isn’t systematically eliminated, kid like that will keep going ballistic. It’s the equivalent of lone wolf terrorism which is triggered by the same pressure cooker of a temper exploding.
