for those that think not resisting and givin up your things to a robber would save your life   read this.

After the victim handed over a bag with the boots he'd just purchased, he heard another man in the truck yell to the gunman to shoot him, Mitchell said.

In fear for his life, the victim pulled out his own gun and began shooting toward the robber, striking him, Mitchell said. The suspect then jumped back in the vehicle, which fled down the street to the intersection of Wafer and Southmore.

Maybe – maybe not.  Use of a Katana could have resulted in that many deaths.

But you are missing the point.  Gun violence against children is very high.  It doesn't come from mass shootings.  You have accidental shootings (resulting in one death) from kids playing with a weapon without respecting it.  This can be fixed with better parental controls (not community ones).  Also, suicide results in many youth dying (also resulting in one death) or severely crippled.  And gang violence accounts for one or two deaths at a time.  What is important here is that this violence is rampant and kills far more children collectively than any mass shootings like Columbine or Sandy Hook.  And the weapon of choice is usually a shotgun, hunting rifle, or handgun.

So why are people losing their bearing and being convinced that the solution is to ban assault weapons and creating a nation gun registry?  For what reason would a government need to do that?  How would this prevent the next Columbine or Sandy Hook?  No, it won't make it harder.  It won't even phase it.  If a background check does stop someone, how long before they google for "80% Lower"?  Someone intent on killing won't stop.  They will just acquire a weapon by some other means like stealing it or making it.

Officials say a man accused of stabbing more than a dozen people at a Houston-area college told investigators that he had fantasized about cannibalism and about cutting off people's faces and wearing them as masks.

I have yet to play a game where I cut ones face off and wear it. Movies though... House of 1000 Corpses, Texas Chainsaw, Silence of the Lambs. Lets no forget the obvious, Face-Off.

Along with negative music like this...........




I wonder if J. Loughner, J. Holmes and A. Lanza thought "There's nothing wrong with me!" every time they pulled the trigger?

Crazy people will find an outlet for their issues regardless of what they view.  Mad is mad.

I have seen violent films and played violent games since I was like 9 and am a perfectly nice, normal, grounded person with no anger issues or desire to eat people.

Because Americans treat each other like **** and people tend to get fed up and snap.

BTW I live in the US.
That is a relatively recent phenomenon - especially in the southern US.  Back in the day if a man disrespected another man or worse - his wife - someone was going to be killed or badly hurt.  This had a way of making civil conversations out of what might otherwise have been "imprudent" speech :)  
I don't suggest we return to the days of dueling but it's indisputable that maintaining a certain level of respect in public is needed badly anymore.

  for what could be, the darkest age...
