There’s is a root cause for everything that ends ip turning bad, the trouble with roots is they tend to be hidden.
The only way to at least prevent it is to not make guns so easy to aquuire so it foils their plans

Also, why is it males as opposed to females?

Obviously we should outlaw kids or at least require a background check and testing and licensing before anyone can have them.

That’s because their is zero legal precedent to back it up..

NO ONE was saying the 2cond applied to regular joes until 2008 and only the DC ban on handguns has ever been over turned..

It is just more rightwing world garbage..

As a Disclaimer I don’t think the founders would have EVER gone for disarmament, but..

I disagree completely..

All the bashing of later generations isn’t accurate imho..

I think if you ask anyone who works with the public, 40 year old upper class whites women are BY FAR the most entitled people you will encounter.

You have always had outsiders go crazy and start killing people. You’ve ALWAYS had kids commit murders... HORRIFIC murders..

With the media we just hear ever crazy event that happens.

If it was an “easy target” thing then they hit a daycare..

It is a personal thing , so they went to the place they blamed for their “torment/failures/enter whatever BS justification “...

They plan on dying..

Hard and soft targets are irrelevant.. hard and soft only matter when you care if you get away.

Surly some kids can not handle violent video games and the easy access to weapons..
So when depressed and nothing to loose.. they step into gaming mode and play irl GTA

From the looks of it, they all seemed to be the victims of bullying as well. The kids with the cooties. The ones that no one wants to play with. The "weird" kids.

We also had a massive school shooting, here in the UK.
The Dunblane massacre.

read how quickly handguns were made illegal to possess for individuals and in all fairness, we haven't had a mass shooting in a school ever since.
Nor has anyone suffered much not being allowed a handgun.

Now, every coin has two sides.

There are plenty of school massacres in China, a lot of them not involving guns:

Showing that if you make guns unobtainable, there are other ways to kill sitting targets.

As shown here:

Not only did he use a self made flame thrower but to completely confuse those that blame anti depressants and say these things only happened in the last 30 years; this happened in 1964!

To be honest, I don't think any gun laws [for or against] is going to stop these things from happening.
If you outlaw guns in a country all law abiding people who need them for protection are shafted whilst gangsters have no shortage.

On the other hand it does make obtaining guns a lot more difficult for a screwed up 'law abiding' citizen going mental. But as I have shown above, there are many other ways to kill helpless innocents.

I have lived in 3 European countries for many years [Germany, France, UK] adn had time to see how their gun regulations work.
In Germany you are allowed a gun but we have very strict restrictions:

That hasn't stopped gun crimes though, which still happen.

In the UK, guns are outlawed and the crims know this. Burglaries, especially in rural areas by a certain 'travelling' kind of people are ripe. However one [hero] farmer shot the bastards after being burgled several times.

He has single handedly stopped a crime wave thanks to his rifle [or whatever he used].

I think that guns in countries that had them forever should be regulated but allowed and in countries with no guns, it should stay that way.
However in both circumstances there must be zero tolerance.
Catching someone with an illegal gun should carry a maximum sentence.

As for school massacres, kids need to be taught how to deal with difficult situations instead of telling them difficulties don't exist and they have some sort of 'right' or 'privilege' never to be upset about stuff.

The world is a dangerous place and we are rearing kids that can't cope with 'bad things' because they are so entitled to constant happiness and respect for no reason.

Hmm in the animal world most males never mate I'd say total rejection is part of life.

I'm sure cavemen were centered around a strong Alpha.

Life has never been and will never be fair.

Then you're part of the problem...

This isn't the "animal world". We are human. We have rationalization.

We aren't cavemen. We don't lug women over the heads to mate.

Life isn't fair but people around you shouldn't make it less fair. There is a huge difference between what life gives/takes away from you and how you teach your kids to interact with other kids.

In this world, parents may tell their children they're special, especially when that child is picked on. What should they tell their children?

"Hey, nothing is fair. You suck! Get used to it"!

Should they tell their children that they're ugly? That they don't look like the other kids? That they can't afford to dress like the other kids? That their beliefs has them thinking differently than other kids?

If you do, you shouldn't be a parent. You don't deserve kids. We take care of our children the best that we can and we try to explain the hardships of the world that they have to live in. We don't tell them, "Honey, the world belongs to you...". We try to console them when they're down and being bullied. We can't control the bully, the kids that pick, the kids that make fun of... Yeah, there will likely always be that but I chalk that up to bad parenting and lack of interest in the school establishment to do something about this issue.

Just remember... When a kid shoots up your school, it's likely the kid that was bullied, pushed around, picked on, mocked, made fun of, called weird, ignored, cast out....

It has nothing to do with how easy it is to access guns
It has nothing to do with violent video games
It has nothing to do with music
It has nothing to do with skateboards
It has nothing to do with Pepsi

None of these things will influence the way some morons think it does. Those are only an outlet, not an enabler.

Teach your kids to stop being dicks to the less fortunate kids and things might just turn out to be alright.

It is always the rejected isolated males..

My personal guess is that these people are sexually frustrated and no one will give them
The time of day..

Mix that with the roaring hormones of puberty and maybe a kid that was a bad egg to start with...

We are built to be sexual creatures..

In hunter gatherer days and before, orgyies were prevelant and so where rapes (I assume). Sex would be considered more frivolous and society would have none of the puritanical ideology we are saturated in today.

Is it really that different from the guy who kills his wife and her new lover???

Could be a completely submissive type guy, but that primal territorialism kicks in and they snap.

ohh hi... you jumped off in the deep end a lot of projection and putting words in my mouth.

Only brought up caveman cuz of the post I replied...

Don't worry how I raise my kids.

Rejection is normal teach your kids how to deal with and what to do if bullied.

And of course every shooter was bullied and how many on SSRI?

Yes. Usually is the rejected ones, they are loners and get really down about it. They are ticking time bombs. Jeffrey Dahmer, same thing but took it to the extreme level. I think his motives were fear of abandonment. He tried keeping them as zombies, drilling holes in their heads. Not sure he was harbouring a hatred towards society, he claimed it was sexual gratification.

Some of these ticking timebomb types are so rejected or bullied, they develop a deep hatred towards others. Hence they want to kill them. Some of the school shooters targeted the popular kids.

Animals that don’t have sex for pleasure go years/lifetimes without sex.

The great apes DO NOT.. in fact chimps tend to go crazy in captivity. Leading to scientists/trainers masterbating them to calm them down.

I’m pretty sure not one school shooter had a girlfriend..

Absolutely... or maybe prostitution being legal..

And I don’t just mean sex...or intercourse..

Just the closeness, intimacy, emotional bonding, exc exc..

Men are genetically designed to go hunt that feeling down.. even kill competitors for that feeling..

Lol... think the Christian Right would go for a paid prostitute in every school, if it meant never having another shooting??
