    Better it happened there than someplace decent.
    Here's something funny about Feinstein. When asked what she knew about the gun issue, she stated that she had seen pictures of thousands of guns....... Which logically leads to the following statement - If this makes her an expert on the gun control issue, then every teenage boy in America is an expert in gynecology. LOL.

    re: Police call deadly Santa Barbara shooting spree 'premeditated mass murder'[W220]

    I heard on the news today that the kid had been in therapy since he was eight years old. Clearly, the parents knew he had a problem and was all over it early in his life. Unfortunately, once he reached legal adulthood, he was in a position to move out of their house (and their sphere of influence), stop taking his medications, stop going to therapy and plan his insane vengeance.

    This is NOT the parents' fault. They literally did everything they could, and tried everything legally available to them. Some people are just... broken.

    Based on what was offered to read about Elliot Rodgers then I think so too. Of course we do not really know that the writing is Elliot's do we?

    The underlying message from Elliot Rodgers is: Humanity is on your hands ladies. If you do not offer sexual favors to everyone then humanity gets it, just so you know

    Seems to me the shooter was the silent/shy type (though I could be wrong since I dont know him and simply extrapolating form what he wrote), those people tend to get overlooked by girls, especially if they dont hang out with popular friends or go to parties. Ive known quite a few women who have gotten cocky douchebags as husbands too.

    Dude must have zero game. In my teens and early twenties I was dirt poor and uglier than this kid - and I got more ass than a toilet seat.

    If anything, I think it speaks to this entitlement nation. He thought that chicks should spread on demand. Ya ain't that rich, kid.

    perhaps it wasnt complacency. maybe instead they were concerned about infringing(or being seen as) on his 2nd amendment rights.
    imagine any of them, at any time, insisting he couldnt own a firearm.

    is there even an expedient means to inhibit a person from owning a pistol they've purchased legally, due to suspicion of intent to harm others, or mentally unstable enough to "snap"? id say no, based on the history of such things and add that because of its sensitive history the legal responses are black and white, and reactionary only.

    edit:
    whats more, we know more about the weapon than the medication he's been on historically. the elephant in the room is being ignored in these cases, because the public tends to pick on the"low hanging fruit" and point at the means of delivery, rather than the perpetrator.

    This psychopathic guy posted a creepy Youtube video complaining about being still a virgin at 22 yr old and hating all the blonde beautiful women he couldn't get and all sexually active men who had all the women they want for sex. For that he went on a killing rampage the next day? What's going on mentally with the young men of American society?

    It will be interesting, if it's ever made public, to see the medical and pharmaceutical history of this guy. My bet is he has been treated for a number of years with psychoactive drugs.

    I didn't see it as silent/shy. I saw cockiness, at least in his postings, because he felt like he deserved beautiful women. That, to me, is cocky. Nobody deserves anything. You have to work for it. He wasn't willing to do that.

    Well he was cocky on the internet but was he like that in real life? I know a few people who are pretty loudmouth braggarts when surrounded by close friends and family but the moment they meet a girl at a social event they turn into silent daffodils.

    I think that the bottom line was that this kid was disturbing enough to his parents that IIRC, the parents called the police...They interviewed, and that should have been all that was needed to commit for a 72 hour evaluation....I am left wondering why this wasn't done...

    All that had to be hurdled is a determination of a danger to himself or others....That seems to be accomplished with his history, and the call in the first place.
