    Makes it sound like the gun attacked all by itself. Damn I wish I could teach my gun how to do that.... do you have to send it to gun obedience school, or is there some "Gun Whisperer" guy who can teach them to attack on their own?



    you must be thinking of those SMART GUNS the liberals wanted to develop

    Turtle to his smith and wesson

    Hey pistol, some asshole is out in the living room stealing the TV-go shoot his ass off

    S&W to turtle-YOur wish is my command



    blam blam blam

    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    It reminds me of a few years back, when we were seeing headlines of "SUV kills family of 5", and similar articles.

    So when you are impotent to back up the claims you made during debate about an issue of American history you then resort to playground insults found on the elementary school playground.

    Interesting.

    well that is an admirable sentiment but before the blood of the victims even started to clot the anti gun nut cases in our country started screaming for gun bans etc.

    I don't know how you stop a guy like this from doing this again since he was smart enough to pick an area where the chance of someone being armed was about nil and he had a clean record prior to this attack

    I don't believe in prior restraint, meaning if another guy with the same personality who has a clean record shows up we cannot throw him in jail because he might go on a rampage.

    To me this is the heart of the matter: What made this man commit such violence and how he became such a blight on humanity.

    Anytime a nutcase shoots people with guns in this country, that happens. People get riled up about the gun rights issue, and some people start crying that gun control would have prevented it, while the other side insists otherwise. Guns are a hot button issue here, and rightfully so.

    As for the kid who did it, who knows what made him snap. It could be a variety of things, and we'll probably never really know for sure. That's one of the problems with some mental illness. A perfectly normal-seeming person just goes off the deep end, and you just hope he does it alone, rather than pulling others in on his misery.

    Do you really want to know what may have cause this or are you more comfortable simply writing it off saying he was ill?
