    Guns are the real issue. Without the gun, no one would have been shot.

    Relative Morality, outdated 10 Commandments, Abortion, and Evolution in Schools, and Atheism evidently has cut the violent crime rate by more than half.

    If you read Freakonomics they attribute much of the reduction in crime due to Roe v Wade. They back it up, not just opinion.

    Another senseless tragedy. There's been a lot of that going around.

    Well, lots of other societies have trended toward atheism without schools becoming battlegrounds. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's only happening in the US. I mean, the entire Western world is predominately atheist, except for nominally Catholic countries, and it's not a problem.

    ...that life is supposed to be absolutely fair and it's not fair, damn-it, we'll make it fair.

    ...it's ok to resort to violence to make things fair.

So im assuming what you're actually saying is things are getting better so dont sweat these massacres? You have to crack a few eggs to reach this vision of a atheistic utopia?? I would say give me your solution but you don't seem to think there's a problem.
    I posted a list of school shootings, they go all the way back to the founding of the country. The reason why you don't recall them years ago is that 40 years ago we didn't have the internet, 24/7 news, blogs, and so on. A shooting a generation ago would make local news, but not always national news.

    As to the rest of your post, I was responding to a post that blamed these shootings on abortion, moral relativism, taking God out of the society and so on. I merely pointed out the entire premise is flawed being violent crime has plummeted over the last 40 years. Point being, that lack of correlation always disproves causation. Moreover, I am pretty sure that people know murder is wrong regardless of whether we have a ten commandments monument in the town square or not.

    There are 40 million gun owners in the United States. Your statement cripples under logic alone. A WARNING SIGN is something like a known inability to cope with heart break. Congratulations though. Way to dance of the graves of the dead. Instead of taking time to learn about this you want to score political points against the NRA. Good job.

    Is it a prevalence of guns? Nonsense. Guns were more prevalent per capita in past eras, and this **** was not common.

    Is it video games? I think no, but I don't really know? I mean, I play video games. And I've never shot up a school.

    Is it bullying? Is bullying something new? Has bullying gotten worse? Is it because it's all online now?

    Is it copy catting? Like, gee wiz, my life sucks, I'm gonna go all columbine on someone? Had this latest shooter even heard of columbine?

    What are we doing wrong as parents? How are we erring so badly that are kids are homicidal maniacs?
    Wait a while and find out.

    Until then it's conjecture and a whole lot of bull****.

    The sole purpose of guns is killing. Everyone who owns a gun voluntarily (without a reasonable need) wants to kill someone with it, even if it's in self-defense. Gun possession always is a sign of a dangerous individual.
