DENVER -- In the first public sign of discord between the families of the teen-agers responsible for the killings at Columbine High School, the parents of Dylan Klebold are considering a lawsuit against Jefferson County, claiming that the authorities ignored indications that the other shooter, Eric Harris, had violent tendencies.Susan and Thomas Klebold argued in papers filed Friday with the county attorney that the sheriff's office was "reckless, willful and wanton" in failing to respond to complaints last year that Harris had threatened to kill another student.

It has become as familiar to us as the candlelight vigils at the crime scene. The modest house in a quiet neighborhood. The curtains drawn, the media camped out in the street. The neighbor's description of a family that kept to itself. And then the statement. The family is stunned. This is not the child they knew and loved. They are grieving, for that child as well as his victims. They apologize and offer prayers. Soon enough, the rest of this story will play out — again — for us. The child was troubled, and the family should have seen it. They should have seen the diary or the essays or the drawings or the website or the videos.

GOLDEN, Colo. -- Sheriff's officials released yesterday the last batch of documents from their investigation of the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School, a trove that included one killer's essays about guns in high schools and a diary kept by his father that dismisses complaints against his son from another classmate. With 25,000 pages of Columbine-related documents already in the public domain, yesterday's 946-page coda offered little new information. But it did provide additional details about Eric Harris' and Dylan Klebold's plotting.

LITTLETON, Colo. -- Four days before the shootings, the principal of Columbine High School, Frank DeAngelis, told his students at an emotional pep rally in the gym that he did not want to bury another young person. With the prom set for the next night, Saturday, he implored them not to drink, or drink and drive, or put themselves at risk in any way."I do not want to attend another memorial service," he had said, recalling students who had died in car accidents, including a baseball player he had coached and two girlfriends of his teen-age daughter.

GOLDEN, Colo. -- Videotapes made by two teen-agers as they planned a shooting massacre and their suicides at Columbine High School show them to be filled with hateful rage, hoping to kill 250 people, yet sympathetic to their parents for what they would soon endure. "They're going to be put through hell once we do this," one of the killers, Eric Harris, said of his parents in the last of several tapes he made with Dylan Klebold. And as if to exonerate their parents from any guilt, remorse or responsibility, Harris quietly quotes Shakespeare: "Good wombs have borne bad sons."

"The sleep of reason produces monsters," -- Spanish painter Francisco de GoyaTHE MONSTERS who slaughtered more than a dozen classmates and a teacher in Littleton, Colo., a week ago were the products of a culture in which reason has been comatose for a very long time.The killers, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, were raised in a society in which rules and standards are in such constant flux as to be non-existent. Morals are a matter of spin, values a matter of choice, and violence is glorified in movies and music.

In 2013, I retired as the Commander of the Maryland State Police Licensing Division. Before that, I ran the Maryland State Police Firearms Enforcement Section and the Gang Enforcement Unit. I was also a homicide investigator, drug investigator and criminal investigator for most of my career. I understand crime and I understand violence. I strongly support efforts to reduce violence in the state of Maryland. But the fact is that we are not focusing on real solutions. I can assure you that bad laws do not make us any safer.

DENVER -- As 8,000 anti-gun demonstrators -- rallied by the anguished pleas of the father of a slain Columbine High School student -- marched in protest, the National Rifle Association held a scaled-back meeting here yesterday.But although the group's members were outnumbered nearly 4-to-1 by the protesters, the mood among NRA members meeting in a basement ballroom was exuberantly defiant."Each horrible act can't become an ax for opportunists to cleave the very Bill of Rights that binds us," NRA President Charlton Heston told a cheering overflow crowd, many wearing blue-and-silver Columbine memorial ribbons fastened with NRA buttons.
