    Yes they are. More people are living in poverty, on unemployment, on food stamps, on disability, and on social security. When that many people are having to look toward goverment, for their ability to survive, things are indeed worse.

    Only four dead.

    No big deal really. Nothing to see here. You gotta hit double digits today to make more than just one news cycle.

    You claimed that more people are insane and things are getting worse. Murder is down. Wars are down. Rape is down. Violent crime is down... this is all world-wide.

    If things are so much better, why are we looking at gun control? Why are people popping their corks and going off the deep end. Just because people are being pacified with a government check, it doesn't mean things are better. It means they are pacified.

    You are scattering here. What are you asking me? Looks like you are changing the definition of what is bad.

    If you believe some of the people on this site, then yes...assault weapons are killing people every day as the gun of choice in gangs all across the country. But thats not what I said. THIS TYPE of incident...3 people dead, 4 people dead, 2 people dead, 5 people dead...yes....it happens EVERY DAY. For example...the day AFTER the school shooting 3 were shot at a hospital in Alabama, 5 people were killed in San Diego. On the 10th of December, 5 were killed on Tule River Indian Reservation, 7 were recently gun downed by a woman in Detroit, 4 more in California on the 2nd...etc.

    This happens every day. Every day young black men die in gang related violence. What is the response? Crickets. As tragic as the 'mass shootings' are we are talking a handful compared to the number that are killed by people every day.

    True. But saying this is an over reaction isn't accurate IMO. So many people die in car crashes every day it's rather crazy but when a plane goes down and takes a bulk amount of folks with it, it turns heads more. Or a car pile up killing 20 will turn more heads than a car crash that killed 2.

    When you have 20 INNOCENT CHILDREN that are victims, it becomes very important.
