Re: School Shooting in Knoxville, Tennessee

The law doesn't take effect until July 1. Even so, this student would be in violation of the law if it were in effect.

This has nothing to do with that law.

Re: US Capitol incident

The driver apparently had mental health problems, made worse by use of drugs. Why he decided to go to the Capitol may be just some desperate act to get attention for his problems. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/family-and-friends-concerned-noah-green-was-unraveling-before-capitol-attack/ar-BB1ff...
