    That is pathetic because there are massive gun deaths in places like Mexico and no NRA. I doubt ANY of the gun crimes in DC or Chicago involve NRA Members.

    The teaching of evolution isn't unique to the US.

    The US is the most religious of all western nations, yet it has the worst homicide problem of any developed, western nation.

    ... that it is okay to kill innocent babies in the womb if they are inconvenient...
    The US has one of the lower abortion rates in the developed world, but the highest homicide rate. Next.

    .... that things like the 10 Commandments are outdated and all morality is relative....
    The US is THE most God-fearing, bible-believing, church-attending of developed nations...with the highest homicide rate.


    ... and then we wonder why stuff like this happens?
    When is anyone going to be intellectually brave enough to investigate whether the relationship between ordinary Americans and violence and weapon-ownership might have something to do with your extraordinary homicide rate?

    I respect your right to your own opinions Goshin, but this sounds like a dump of every social development of the past 50 years, with absolutely no effort put into analysing whether there is any correlation between said development and violence in adolescents. All those socially-progressive developments you listed? To tell the truth the US is behind the curve on almost all of them in comparison to their neighbours in the developed world. There are greater percentages of atheists, evolution-believers, abortionists and religion-rejecters in almost every developed nation than there are in the US, and yet the US has a uniquely severe homicide problem. Doesn't that suggest you might be looking in all the wrong places, because it's too politically incorrect to look in the right places?

    and nothing more than an attempt to shift the blame to something other than the shooter.

    It's be really cool for once to see both sides responses to an minority of gun owners attacking people in a similar way to how they respond to a minority of Muslims attacking people in the name of their religious/socio-religious views.

    The news is saying two of the victims are cousins of the shooter and the grandfather of one (NBC News, 8.02 AM EDST today) says his grandson was very close to the shooter.
