    • Gunman opened fire at Sparks Middle School in Nevada Monday morning before classes started
    • Two students are in critical condition at the hospital
    • Two people killed, including gunman



    Terror erupted at a Nevada middle school this morning after a young boy reportedly shot his teacher and two students before turning the gun on himself.

    A young eyewitness says he watched one of his classmates pull out a gun at the school before classes started Monday morning. When a teacher saw the weapon, he ran over to stop the student.

    That's when the boy opened fire, shooting the teacher.

    Police in Sparks, Nevada, says the gunman shot several students at Sparks Middle School before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.
    At least one other person is dead and two middle school boys are at Renown Regional Hospital in critical condition.

    That's a shame. I hate to hear about these senseless acts of violence, especially when they involve a gun. I guess now since it was a middle school student, the gov and the anti-gunners will try to make all gun owners keep their firearms under lock and key ALL the time. They'll probably specify the exact brand/type of safe/vault that you have to buy, and if you can't aford it, oh well, the gov confiscates your guns. Sorry, I just automatically go there whnever these types of tragedies happen. Prayers to the families of the injured and dead.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    What's wrong with these kids? The local school system is teaching middle school kids in dealing with gunshot wounds. Arm the teachers already!

    one has to wonder if this "media event" was helped along by those who could gain by another school shooting?

    it is possible some Rx is driving the kids to become mass murders --- there has to be a common factor in all the mass shootings by kids at least.

    i don't recall the"kid on kid" crimes being any thng like this 30 -40 years ago. we have to ask the correct questions and that would be "what has CHANGED to drive the children of today INSANE?

    broken homes , violent TV , video games , no one home when kids get out of school. mass illegal immigration bringing more criminals to our country , compleate moral decay of our social values , the loss of religion an fear of going to hell, the inability to discipline ones own kids with spanking . no more respect for teachers due to parents having no resperct , the increase of drug use becoming more acceptable in our schools . The increase of bully's an gangs that go unchecked. parents wrokig two jobs to pay bills an not carig for there kids , parents not working at all an not caring for there kids , poor diet , kids dont have to work hard or do chores any more in may homes , they have no responsibility, teachers who are push overs an cant control a class due to the laws preventing spanking an other dicipline .

    thats a few things that come to mind as a father of a 13 year old.
