    What's up with Sikhs not having a gun. I guess it's time to put that blade stuff behind.

    Doesn't mean we shouldn't have a discussion. Every time someone tries to bring it up, a tragedy is being "politicized" or we are having a knee-jerk reaction. We should be able to discuss these issues.

    The individual is the symptom of the problem. These shooters are unknown to each other and what is mind blowing is no matter how many white mass murderers make an appearance there is no stereotyping white men as terrorists.

    We've had the discussion, why have it again every time?

    I agree but, if G-d forbid, something like this starts happening every few weeks, what the heck is society's proper response?

    There was no bigotry in that post.

    Lets get one thing straight.

    Of course the shootings are worse, which is why at times like these sometimes I think we should have a swift justice law with strict criteria.

    Witnesses, CCTV, evidence so on and so forth presented, and in cases of mass killings the person is put to death several days later. In the case of Colorado it would have been a no brainer, we all know who did it.

    But the idea that I can't also be pissed about the way the media covers these events is rediculious, because in some ways I believe it encourages people with a certain mind set to want to committ the crimes, the idea of being "infamous" and all.

    Anyway yeah didn't phrase my statement particularly well but believe me, enemy #1 is the shooters in these cases.
    Fair enough. Your wording made the wrong point, but I gotcha now.

    Bottom line - it's ironic. Maybe the guy is a comedian.

    All the Sikhs that I've know were upstanding, law abiding responsible citizens. Sikhs should arm themselves and pledge not to let this happen again without member response.
