You know what is scary..... is that you may be right........ But personally I think the problem is not guns or the weapons used to kill others, the problem is that we as people can be so unattached from one another that when it comes to phycological and emotinal distress signals they are easily overlooked or out right dismissed, untill all hell breaks loose we just cant understand what has happened because it is so obviously complex on those two fronts. And blaming weapons is just foolish, The desire for weapons was always with us hell it is why they were invented, they are for killing ... And I definitely believe there is a sickness in this country and I call it FEAR.

stick a whole bunch of impressionable minds into a school institution in which they are told how horrible their culture is, the crimes people from their religion or skin color have commited for the last 1000 years, and the racism in their culture for the last 200 years, and repeat this thru grade school, jr. high, high school and college, while also lambasting them with similar negatives in movies music books news and other popular media, and fail to mention that any other culture on the face of the planet or any other skin color on the planet, or any other racial group on the face of the planet, has ever had similar problems, and then expect them to leave the school system with good self esteem and a positive self image, cultural identity worth a plugged nickel, or anything resembling the foundation necessary for healthy social functions, is not only irrational but the probability is extremely low. we have whole sectors of the populace who now officially hate the color of their skin and have no self esteem. they literally hate themselves.
now stick those same people on neurological drugs that half the time cause more problems than they fix, in a jobless economy where even electrical engineers are working at mcdonald's restaurant, and expect a country under such hostile conditions to produce stable, happy people, is the probably the biggest fantasy land of all.

Firster off, the victims are dead -- they don't give a shít about your crocodile sympathy.
You mad bro?
No one cares about sympathy. It means nothing and yields nothing. What you should be feeling is guilt and the warm sensation of fresh child-blood on your hands.

I saw a picture earlier today. It said, "Navy seals didn't kill Bin Laden, guns did."
I thought it was pretty humorous. We can extend this same concept to:
"Wars don't kill people. Guns do" or...
"Gangs don't kill people, Guns do" or..
"School mass murderers kill people, Guns do"...
Wasn't there a serial stabbing in China around the same time of the last mass shooting in America?
When will people grow up and realize it isn't the weapon that is important, but the intent? If someone wants to mass murder 100 people they can find a way to poison food at a banquet. No need for a gun.
