    are you trying to blame those of us who had nothing to do with it on us. Or is this just another case of a far left socialist trying to tar our second amendment rights with the actions of some nutcase

    We have had guns for as long as this nation has been around. Progressive "ideals" not so much but we didn't start having most of these problems until we had the scourge of progressivism corrupt our nation

    **** happens.


    I didn't know any of these people, as far as I've heard, and it isn't my state or my city or my county, and **** like this happens several times a year, and so it is kinda BFD to be honest.


    In other news, a lot more than 7 people will die in traffic accidents this weekend, most of them alcohol-related.

    Bah, in a county that voted 70-80% for Obama. **** happens, but only a 20-30% chance people were killed instead of Liberals.

    You bring up a good point for discussion. We do have to "deal with" this problem, and as this forum suggests, there are many different philosophies as to how. Personally, I do not necessarily think more or less guns is the solution. That does not mean that imposing gun control or increasing gun ownership won't have any effect whatsoever, but I do not believe that it will fix the whole picture. I certainly value the 2nd amendment and exercise it. But, I do think it is a culture thing in America. Something in American culture makes us violent. And I hope that we can definitively identify what that is sooner or later.

    I won't get into the pro-anti gun arguments, at least not now, and simply say God rest the souls of all those who lost their lives here and help the first responders and police negotiators to get past what they will see as a failure. Sometimes, there's just no stopping someone bent on causing serious pain and damage on their way off this earth.
