    No attack at all - just stating the truth - judicial notice.

    The fact is we have laws regarding the mentally ill and children having firearms. We however I have limited understanding of what causes someone to become a mass shooter. Dragging firearms end of this discussion is stupid. It is not productive. And quite frankly it ignores the fact that we already have the laws on the books that we need.

    However it doesn't matter. I know well enough that bringing firearms up is not about trying to help people who are victims of these mass shooters. It isn't about developing coping mechanisms for people who may become mass shooters themselves. It is about scoring political points against the NRA.

    The short version is your side tracking this discussion by involving firearms legislation.
    The thread is about a "popular" 14-year old who used his father's gun to execute his best friends/cousins, and I think he may have shot them in the backs of their heads. What made him act out and take teen angst to the next level?

    Your post was merely another cheap shot drive by attack which had nothing to do with the discussion.

    Put your victim card back up your sleeve.
    You dealt the cards.

    It doesn't really matter what you say. You are trying to shift the focus too firearms. If you recognize that the cause is not one thing...why insist on talking about it.

    There is a difference between something being THE CAUSE and examining a social problem to see if different factors may be involved as part of the reason why things happens like they do.

    I know what it is about. This is my response to someone changing the topic.

    I don't know what made him, but I suspect it is along the lines of having his "self image" bubble popped. Him not having any way to grasp being different and he had no real coping mechanism. They probably popped it. He probably felt victimized and couldn't hack it.

    We need a real study on this stuff.
