Send in the Cannon Fodder

I’m very sorry Victoria died and I’m glad she was able to save her students. But, I do not understand why Victoria died. Why don’t we control guns and violence and make sure there are no repeat offenders. Why does our society allow this to keep happening? Why are criminals given more consideration than victims?

Why does it feel like we are all just fodder waiting for the cannon?

If you don’t know what cannon fodder is Wikipedia says it is those who are¬†expendable and sent into battle against hopeless odds, knowing they will mostly all die. But, even cannon fodder serve the purpose of gaining some ground in battle. I don’t see anything gained in the death of Victoria and all those like her.
