so a question for the gun nuts. why are you guys always cowards?

Sad. Unfortunately, the body count will need to be much higher to waken the American people up to the stranglehold the NRA has put them in.

exactly


NRA brainwashing, the insane commercial proliferation of small arms, and near total lack of control of weapons is making these incidents a weekly societal occurrence.

Another senseless shooting. "Guns don't kill people..." right...

The main difference I see between my generation and this new one is that there are way more kids coming from broken families...

We had the same drugs, same mental illnesses, same weapons, etc...

Otherwise, what the hell is so different NOW, that has this kind of sh!t is happening so often and by so many???...

I'm always shocked at the level of violence in PG movies... and the lack hot nude female bodies.

locker, part of the problem could be 311 million people today compared to 179 million in 1960. Oh, and the proliferation of guns, violence, and ignorance.

Guns are the problem when combined with movies and tv and other media that glorifies stupid american sh!t.


I also think that is more the problem. Hell, nearly half the country is a bunch of paranoiacs who think the world is about to end. The media instills such a high level of anxiety while all sorts of other media point to violence as an answer. What do you think is going to happen?

Guns make violence easy, I don't know that banning them is the answer though. Although, I don't see Americans embracing values that would change this trend either.

It looks like our country turns out its own share of psychopath terrorists.

Until '68, you could buy guns through THE MAIL, Norton. No questions asked.

way more kids coming from broken families...

Locker, I do not think the evidence shows that. Crime is at historic lows, due in large part to the easy availability of abortion. See Freakonomics, great book.

Many of these mass murders come from good solid families. The Batman guy, obviously mentally ill was successful in his own right, family was very successful. The Oregon shooter was on his way to Maui, WTF? Sadly some sick individuals have found a way to check out and exact some revenge on society for some perceived slight. What drives society crazy is the fact that we can not pass some law to stop it.

meChrist, I am stealing that. It is a very Good Point.

I myself won't need a gun, I want to kill that bastard with my bare hands. My God I feel so bad for the families involved. All I need to do is look at my son, think of someone hurting him and I start shaking.

"Locker, we did not have the same access to PCP, Meth, etc back then"...

Seriously...

maybe YOU didn't...

But it WAS there and available...(NOT as easy to get though. You're correct on that!!!)

As far as the "CLIP" thing goes???...

I am 100% positive that back when I was a kid, they had weapons that would do equal the damage as was done in this situation...

There were so many shootings in the USA that there should be enough data to find the common factor. Does anybody know the outcome of such study?
