Does this huge influx of violence scare the shiat out of anybody else in our country? I am only 21. I don't know if it was like this when older generations were growing up. Perhaps it was, but just not widespreadly reported because they didnt run news 24-7 back then. Either way, it's a big issue, and I can't grasp why we aren't getting psych type people in schools to teach our kids nonviolent conflict resolution, and doing everything we farking can to figure out what makes people do these awful things and find a way to fix it. We have computers and unmanned drones and MRI machines and a pill for every farking ailment. Why is stopping humans from killing eachother so low on the list? We're supposed to be a country of innovators. Surely this violence can be stopped, slowed, or at least dampened, some how some way.

Whether or not people can bring their firearms to work, that will do nothing to prevent shootings. Declaring a place a "gun free zone" doesn't suddenly create a force field that blocks out firearms.

You do realize that military bases are strict no gun zones except for police and training missions. All those M16s are kept locked up and away from their ammo.

So yes, it is too bad no one had a gun except for the cop who showed up 3 minutes into the slaughter and 12 people were already dead

1) Once again....the original intent of The Second Amendment was based upon the premise that all able-bodied males are part of the militia. Of course, with passing legal decisions, we now have laws that realize men and women share the same rights.

2) If I have to turn in my firearms to the government, yes it is. (Look what has aleady happened to gun owners in California.)

3) Of course you have a right to live, but just because I'm a gun owner doesn't put your life in danger. It's not like my firearms sneak out at night and shoot people. I alone am responsible for my behavior, and that doesn't change because some crazy fark went on a shooting spree.

4) I'm not farking trolling, I just happen to support a very important right.

You know what we ought to do. We ought to pass a law that says you can't use a gun to kill a lot of people. I think that would make sense, as laws go. I mean, that would prevent a lot of these shootings from happening, passing a law that makes it illegal to use a gun to go around killing people.

Because right now, as soon as someone gets a gun, they start killing people left and right, and it's just becoming a problem.

Plus we're not all drunk, frozen, or watching hockey all the time.

Although I would trade McDonalds for Timmy's on every corner.


Yeah, me too.

theoriginalslash: Many men don't seem to handle frustration very well... maybe we should do something about that, before we have the 10,000th pointless gun "debate."

I'm sure there would be far more women involved in shootings like this if they didn't all get into car accidents on the way.
