There is a cancerThat is too difficult a question. There could be reasons of culture that certainly could be seen as uncomfortable for anyone to bring up because it could easily drift into a topic that cannot be discussed in America. Mental illness (while seemingly not an issue in this shooting) is another topic that is wrapped up in so many of these cases and has no easy solution so inevitably while it may be mentioned, there is no depth or real discussion of needed steps to address the ever growing numbers of mentally ill. That leaves the tools utilized in these events which are incredibly easy to demonize and target for responsibility even if they are one small part. The solutions made to remove the tool are seemingly simple in the minds of advocates of prohibition and restrictions on firearms, but really fails to address the larger problems and whose impact is largely on individuals who do not engage in the unlawful behavior.
