Just like Homes today, the Columbine shooters rampaged through a crowd of people, opening fire randomly, in a "detached" mode of mental insanity that is not normal or healthy.
This is what many people forget to ask when they learn of such massacres: No gun pulls its own trigger.

It is not more gun control, but what is needed is more people get permits to carry and that would make our streets safer.
The roughly 50% increase in corn prices translates to a 1% rise in shopping bills according to economists at the USDA. The effect on specific food prices vary. It takes, for example, about 2.6 pound of corn to produce a pound of beef. That means that the increase in corn prices may see a 4-5% increase in beef prices. The increase in the price of corn (chicken feed) will boost egg prices 1-2% and a 2-3% increase in dairy prices.
