lol, yes useless. there are planty of non gun related crimes\assults\death. good luck getting rid of guns, we can't get rid of drugs, despite billions wasted on war on drugs. so like i said, you have no solution in mind, you can't even imagine what it would look like.

Like I said before...keep trying to do nothing. I guess you are a better person than me because you like to just sit back and watch rather than get emotionally charged...

Ya'll just ain't gonna let it go are ya?  Never let a terrible tragedy go to waste.

How about...we focus on something else...like...why is the lame stream media still allowed to issue doom and fear mongering crap under hashtag "unconfirmed reports"?

How come the live feeds show a fairly calm scene but the overhead shots show all kinda activity down the street?  What is happening down the street?  Is it just the parents picking up their kids at the fire station or is it something else?

I was very saddened when I heard this today.  My wife asked me if I thought people were going crazy and snapping cause they thinkk the "end of the world" is next week?  She then asked "Do you think this will keep happening and get worse?  All I could say was "maybe"..."Maybe some folks are so weak minded that the stress of this Bullsh!t date is more than they can bear and they snap.

Stop with your stupid comments about gun control and "Never let a terrible tragedy go to waste."

Do you ever think these issues come up because people are outraged about a tragedy? You seem to think that me getting pissed off about this some how means I am trying to take advantage of the situation? I am pissed off because, once again in this country, someone walked in and killed innocent people.

But it is a gun control argument.

Why do these incidents happen more in America than elsewhere?

Obviously it's much more complex than that. People can still access guns where their possession is illegal, and it won't stop people being mad. But a madman with a gun can do more damage more quickly than one without.

And there are many countries where people have access to guns but these things don't occur with such alarming regularity. It's not just mass shootings. Last week a bloke shot his young son to death.......accidentally.

It is a tragedy. But shrugging your shoulders and saying "What's to do about it?" will ensure that there will be a series of tragedies.

There will always be tragedies.  Human beings suck for the most part.  When such a huge percentage of the world population is mentally unstable enough to be on meds...it is a sign of a species sickness.

I will say this and then my participation in the pro and/or anti gun stupidity will end.

I am not against the idea of preventing guns from falling into the hands of idiots and psychopaths.  But how do you do it?  Take a test?  Have a CT scan?  There is no way to do that unless you do it to everyone...and that is not right either.  Not everyone is an insane criminal killer.

But...since this site has a flair for Conspiracy Theory...let us contemplate this.  Did you ever think that there is someone out there that likes to seize every single example of violence and tragedy as a reason to abolish the Second Amendment?

Whether you like it or not, the world is moving toward the Police Nanny state...(even obscure islands in the middle of the ocean).  What better way to institute regulations than to capitalize on tragedy?  There are some sick b******* out there on both sides of the issue.  Crazy people that should not have guns...and authoritarian storm troopers that want to remove all of them from the public.

When we learn to move with our minds and not primal animal emotions...this kind of **** will stop happening.

Capitalise on tragedy? Or respond to one with measures to reduce the risk of further recurrences?

We have plenty of guns down here on our obscure islands, and there have been shootings. But nothing like on the scale that America produces (and I'm not talking absolute numbers here).

It's not guns that are the problem, it's people. But, maybe there's something about Americans that make many of them distinctly unsuitable to be in possession of firearms.

Ok...before I get hammered as if I don't give a ****...let me clarify something.

I am not against gun laws and regulations...but...I do not want them written under the fire of emotion...and I want it kept in mind that tragedy can and will happen with or without firearms.  I saw on another board an unreported tragedy...in China, apparently some guy went into a school yesterday or this morning and killed 22 people with a knife.  Now...was this a copycat crime of sorts?  Is it not being reported because guns were not used?  Is it because it was China and....well...I won't go there.

Ask yourself...

I am done.  I am not a pro-gun fanatic.  Said earlier...I don't even own one.  But I by God Love my Constitution and I will not tolerate it being altered...

Oh don't go there with Ad Hominems... I never called you stupid. Go back and reread what I said. I said your comments were stupid. A lot of smart people make stupid comments. I make stupid comments all the time. So, don't say I called you stupid, because I did not. ANd if you want to see some rational though, why don't you go back to the first page where I employ some rational though about how to solve (or not solve) the problem.
