I got such a weird feeling with this episode.
12 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow!!!! This was one of the best episodes of Glee I have seen. I saw online that some think this is to soon after the shootings that have happened. But I do not feel that way. Tragedy happens 24/7 365 days a year. There is no way to time something when you are dealing with something that humans create. This also highlighted my main problem with the "gun control" thing. I am all for making things more organized. Those complaining about it just need to relax. You can still have guns. You will just have to put more work towards getting them. Someone who is 40 would not join a group of 16 year olds trying to make the legal drinking age 17, for the fact that the 40 year old can already drink. You see? The episode was about shots fired at the school. The Glee club locked themselves in their classroom. They were fine, BUT, the things that happened will shock you. I just kind of froze. It was very interesting and will be on your mind for a while after you see it. The thing that they did was point out the fact that as long as PEOPLE can get guns, people can get guns. It does not matter how long of a wait you are on to get a gun. A man who has been 100% his entire life can wait 12 months and go through all kinds of tests and steps to get a gun. But as long as EVERYONE else can use the same gun, that man becomes millions of men and women. That is what I liked about this episode. People can feel bad, sad or think there no other way out and things can happen. This was a very good episode.
