Well that goes without saying. Grenades actually blow things up. I mean, c'mon, guns just put holes in people. Blowing 'em up is waaaaaaay cooler!

Oh now thats clever. :clap:

"The ANUNNAKI created (at least) two distinct hybrid humans: one, the fully-functioning demi-god (as described in the Old Testament): the other, a ‘dumbed-down’, more manageable ‘drone’ version (but still, crucially, with godlike abilities latent within it’s DNA). The story goes that the descendants of both versions populate the Earth today with, inevitably, one version ruling the other…"

I am sick of hearing about them too. More saddened than anything, really. It's sad all around. I'm sad for the families of the lives lost, even the shooters family :(

I really don't understand the American mindset that more guns = safer community.

How many of these incidents have been avoided by other citizens carrying guns?? you never see headlines like "Massacre averted after Grandma Betty pulled her Desert Eagle"

Fair enough if you want own a gun but surely it is just common sense to have some rules and limitations of the types of guns available to the general public, why would anyone need high powered full/semi auto weapons outside of a gun club?

Don't get me wrong I like guns and shooting I just feel that having some form of gun control would go along way to reducing the number of incidents.

There is no doubt gun control would curb some of these shootings , have a look at here is AUS for example , we had very lax gun laws back in the 80's but it took a lunatic in Tasmania for us to change our law .
Now days you dont hear of mass shooting here due to the fact that the law changed and getting hold of guns is VERY hard and getting a licence for an automatic weapon or a pistol is near impossible .

As much as I love my American brothers ....the ignorance is mind blowing ,  the solution is in your hands , you keep having mass shootings and what are you doing about it ?

Just incase anyone thinks i'm some sort of gun hating tree hugger ..... I own 2 guns :gun:  that I take hunting ( foxes , rabbits , pigs etc )
I had to go through the correct procedure , apply for licence , police checks , apply for a gun permit , wait 3 months etc etc .

Hope they can find at least some sense of motive, beyond pure insanity of course.

That is his facebook page.


And one of his friends thinks a recent break up with his girlfriend sent him over the edge.

Jacob Roberts, who police said is responsible for a fatal shooting spree at an Oregon mall, may have been set off by a recent break-up with a girlfriend, according to one of his friends who said Roberts was generally considered a good-natured person.

Obviously, the use of rapid fire weapons increases the number of injuries/deaths, but I don't know how an event such as this could possibly be for-seen or prevented.

I read that this type of homicide has a close relationship to suicide, and it does appear that in a lot of cases, the perpetrator doesn't come out of it alive, and one wouldn't think they would have expected to.
The theory is that once a perp has committed a heinous act, then it's easier to turn the weapon onto himself, or it's a situation of suicide "by proxy", such as police.
For those reasons, I'm surprised by it when these perps do come out of it alive, and although I think a lot can be learned when they do, I still don't know how it could be for-seen or prevented.
