    You're damn right America has a underlying issue.

    We're a nation of hedonistic entitled narcissistic people who have the uncanny abillity to apply selective morality depending on our moods.

    We've torn down the family unit and taken Christianity out of every public forum or entity.

    It's a hollow existence when you worship stuff and ignore the crumbling moral decay around you.

    EDIT: I also think it's important to point out that these shooters are all men, who have to live with the stigma of "manning up". This idea permeates our culture so deeply that it isn't even questioned; there are no advocates for men on this issue. Men are taught to "man up" and stuff their feelings down and hide them as much as possible, and not share them with others because they'll be perceived as being weak.

    I don't remember what show it was, but I was listening to NPR recently and they were talking about some kind of study that was done about how women, even if they say they want their significant others to open up about their feelings, they really don't because it makes them uncomfortable. Women for the most part can't or don't know how to handle men when they express their feelings, particularly their negative ones and stuff they are struggling through. I think this significantly plays into these types of incidents because these men are forced to bottle up their feelings until they just snap.
    An interesting perspective, but, this was a guy barely out of his teens.

    The elementary school was K-4 grades

    Ryan Lanza, the shooter, had a mother who worked at that school. She was a Kinders teacher. Most of the victims are Kinders.

    Most of these kids were 4-5 years old in kindergarten. Probably were born right around when Obama first took office. Obama's record on abortion is no secret. He pushed for legislation 3 times that children be killed after botched abortions outside of the womb. Abortion is a "right" according the Obama and his minions on the Left.

    If you people are going to scream for rights to be taken away, then let's start talking about "rights" being taken away. Like the "right" to murder innocent children in the womb. The only thing separating these kids that were murdered in this school and the thousands of kids (mostly black) murdered in the womb every single day are a few short years. If we're going to take "rights" away, we can start with abortion.

    While we're at it, we can start training teachers on how to properly use firearms and arm them to the teeth as well.

    Channel 3 local news just reported that an entire Kindergarten class was killed.

    I'm finding it very difficult not to cry.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Yeah I heard earlier it was focused around a kindergarten class but was holding out hope that was wrong....

    Another tragedy. Another missed opportunity to have an honest conversation about America's misuse of firearms.

    If that's true, there aren't even any words to express what I'm feeling. Heartbroken is the closest I can come. These kinds of things are just so confusing in many ways.

    Another terrible and unnecessary shooting, another year without SOME form of gun control. I really don't mean to politicize it, but that's honestly the very first thing that came to mind when I heard about this.

    We can't sit idly by while the gun lobby and politicians say "oops, well, there's nothing that can be done "

    Something's gotta be done man, something's gotta be done.

    I realize you don't like Obama and that's fine. To use this as political fodder for it is disgusting.
