Why does this go on? Because our culture loves things involving violence and sex. They are what make prime-time news and get viewers.
Add on to that that we are a nation of hundreds of millions, millions of who are myopic and bigoted, coupled with different ethnicities and religions living side by side everyday. Our melting-pot boils over. The fact that we allow gun rights may make for more shootings, but it is not the fault of the gun. It is the fault of our nations mentality. Take away guns, and you will have mass killings with something else.
Dollars to donuts, this was a bigoted Fox News follower, confusing Sihks with Muslims, and shooting them up, especially with the fact that Fox News has been on a Muslim Brotherhood kick lately.
As I have said before, if you don't like our gun laws, DON'T MOVE HERE. Or in reverse, move here, father citizen children, send them into the political arena in hopes of swaying the laws. But if you're not doing one or the other, shut up. Because in the course of history, other countries haven't complained when we come with our GUNS and bail them out of a situation (though I can't say anything we have done war-wise in the last 12 years has been noble.)

That's a good one. But if someone goes to all the trouble to design and create a 3d printer gun then they are probably insane enough to use it.
Maybe you are all right and we can't contain the situation with gun control. Let's just give up and let people shoot us.
In total fairness, it seems you are actually fighting a losing battle with mental deterioration in the US. Shall we predict when the next massacre will be.
I'll just remind you though, the US isn't a war like Syria. So this behaviour isn't the norm.
let me put it another way
i have some martial arts training, mostly self taught
i know and have practiced [on 1 inch boards] nearly 200 ways of killing a person
witjh a single blow
should i cut of my arms and legs to please 'fraidy cats like you?
the most dangerous weapon in the human arsenal
only fires neurons.
should i do as you seem to be doing?

Please there's no need for name calling. I don't own a gun, and I never will it is the tool of cowards. Yes the best weapon is the brain, which is why I have no need for guns.
Answer this. Who's the "fraidy cat" (as you put it) if someone believes for one reason or another that they need to own a gun? You only need a gun of you have the intention of killing someone, quickly and easily. It is a weapon of the weak and feeble. How scared do you need to be to want to own an object that can kill a man in an instant?

Typical behavior for a white. Only white people do stuff like this. Let see if any of the WHITE posters here call the WHITE shooter a THUG.

You guys really have to resist the temptation to jump to conclusions. No one knows who is in the temple for certain or for what reasons.

That is a great feed with live text updates from their news team down below. I can't imagine any good reason that someone would do this.

Guy on report just said that guest speaker was shot.
We need to find out who he is for sure.

No other information. They have not identified any additional gunmen. It's possible but those report may have been of the same person. They are not sure if there were additional shooters.
