    Better solutions have already been proposed:

    Fund mental institutions; make it a little easier to get a dangerous person committed to one.

    Improve school security; more armed persons (of one sort or another) there to defend the kids.

    These two would go a LONG way... but it isn't the sound-bite answer certain persons are looking for.

    No, I think those are all good suggestions, I have others make the same suggestions in addition to the measures that have already been proposed. We have a major problem and one solution alone is not going to address it in any significant way.

    Why not ban alcohol, while you're at it.
    It has a strong association with violent crime.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yup. The majority of murders, and the majority of vehicular homicides. Not to mention spousal abuse, child abuse, and a host of other crimes.

    Yet no one is talking about banning booze.

    I mean, no one NEEDS to drink, do they?

    agreed but your suggestions will not help, video games are meaningless

    gun banning and waiting periods they do the opposite they endanger people

    Yes I did and I am not accepting of violence. I can draw that distinction between real and virtual worlds like all sane people can.

    Well unless you get something passed that reduces the needless slaughter of innocents in this country each year, others are going to do it their way.


    So........you better get busy!
