You people in America are crazy, all worried about becoming a socialist country more than you are about saving lives! More worried about your right to have gun than someone elses right to have life. I'm Australian, and sorry to the person who said it, but homicides are in fact down since the Howard Government brought in stricter gun laws. I feel completely safe in my environment because of this. The only real gun violence is among organised crime gangs, this will happen no matter what, but at least it is between themselves. Mentally handicapped people are not criminals and if you look you'lll see many of your gun murders happen in the heat of the moment where, had a gun not been readily available, would not have happened at all. The rest of the western world is looking at you like you're idiots, if you could only see. And by the way, we haven' had a mass murder since.
You pro-gun people are all crazy. You need to step back and look at the big picture. Your ideas are antiquated. I live in Australia, sorry, but gun murders went down since the laws were enforced by Prime- Minister Howard in 1996, and there has not been a mass shooting since. Typically the only gun violence is amongst organised crime gangs, that will never stop, but at least its between themselves. No other first world country thinks like America does about guns. We all realise we are living in a generally civil society who don't need weaponry in our every day lives. I feel so much safer knowing people don't have guns. Yes, criminals will get guns if they really want them regardless, but generally a mentally handicapped person is not a criminal and their actions are done in the heat of a moment. Many of your gun deaths happen in the heat of the moment, that had a gun not been handy, it would never have happened. Wake up, the point is, would it hurt to try restricting guns and see what happens. The worst is that it doesn't work and you go on as before, the best is you save many, many lives. But I know, your right to a gun is more important than someone else's right to life.
And WHY aren't metal detectors installed in schools? A school district will spend a quarter of a million dollars for a football field but not ten thousand dollars (or less) on metal detectors . Had this school and EVERY school in the nation had metal detectors we wouldn't be grieving like this. Shame on society. Shame on school districts. Get your priorities straight...Friday night football can do without a couple dollars for once.
Because the sale of Football tickets pays for everything else! Still- I get your point! The guy broke through a side window. You want to get to the ROOT? DIVORCE! TRASH CELEBRITY SHOWS THAT LEAD THE YOUTH TO BELEIVE THAT ANY KIND OF POPULARITY IS NECESSARY TO LIVE! PARENTS THAT NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR KEEPING A GUN AROUND AN UNSTABLE OFFSPRING! The Media is poisoning this society. They will report anything that's lacking truth and these shows are nothing but violent trashy filth! If this country can ever get fead up to the point where it no longer allows this crap on the tube ONLY THEN will you have something to feel proud of!
This woman bought assault rifles and handguns for her son who was diagnosed mentally ill?
NO MORE GUNS!!! Act now! Vote for a change in the US now: https://www.inqu.me/vote#!qid=gun_control_or_not_is_it_to_easy_to_get_a_gun_in_the_usa_and_should_be_more_restrictive
People still kill people but there should be a middle ground between major government overreach and making it SO easy to acquire guns, especially assault weapons. There is a big difference between owning a gun to hunt or for protection vs some of the ultra lethal weapons produced and easily acquired.
Why did the shooters mom have all the guns Killing her & thewonderful children should nt have been!!
Guns are getting into the hands of these unstable men/boys and killing our love ones. Parents who had guns watch out cus ur son or daughter could be a victim of the next tragedy. Play it save lock these guns away.
I don't think that the second amendment is a valid arguement for pro guns. It was written over 200 years ago when gun technology was nowhere near what it is now. It was written in a completley different context and if the founders of our nation knew that it would lead to this, I don't believe that they would have allowed it. America has the loosest gun laws and the highest homicide rate, and countries that have toughened gun laws have significantly lowered homicide rates. The fact that it is so easy to get a gun in this country is disturbing. Background checks, mental health checks, and a gun safety class should be necessary to purchase a gun, thinking that we have none of those makes me sick. America needs to get its priorities straight and put the lives of innocent people before the greedy NRA members. I can't even imagine what that community is going through and my heart and prayers are with them. Things need to change now.
Don't start with the NRA! If you want to start then start with mental illness! Start with guns being in a house with an unstable person. AIDS were spread by gays " early on " and did we do in all the gays? You people always think you have an answer looking at the end result- the gun is the end result and unstable people are who is holding the gun! The only thing your idea will do is take guns away from the innocent. Your living in a society where people stare into the TV for hours. Their most prideful moment is getting the highest score on a video game. They Facebook constantly and they cannot get their head out their lazy ass in order to look around and have a God Damn meaningful conversation. Start with that!
Sure, because excessive NRA lobbying has nothing to do with the fact that guns are so accessible in this country... not. And all those countries that have toughened gun laws, and had homicide rates drop, that's all a bunch of lies right? There have been 61 mass shootings since Columbine, and you are telling me that what we need to do is have guns more accessible? If the only people that have guns in this country are innocent people, than they should have nothing to hide and should be more than happy to have to have gun safety classes and have background and mental health checks to protect all the innocent lives being taken away too soon. If they are not okay with it, then they shouldn't have a gun in the first place. Guns are made to kill, it's their only purpose, and it is sickening how accessible they are. If you want to blame unstable people, then having mental health checks should be a no brainer. What we need to start with is common sense.
@. You will not find anyone in this country more oppossed to legalizing marijuana, please don't act like you know anything about me. If you go look at more recent comments, you will see from an Australian that you are wrong. Look at all the facts and you will see that tougher gun laws do work. Japan has probably the toughest gun laws, and one of the lowest firearm homicide rates in the world. Obviously gun laws aren't the only solution, but if they can save lives, I don't understand why anyone would be oppossed. I hope that you never have to go through anything like this tragedy, and I would gladly give up my "constitutional rights" to save an innocent life.
Common sense is lacking in this country. Look at what people voted for- SOCIAL ISSUES & Entitlements! Not Jobs! Australia adopted stricter gun laws and their gun violence is up- LOOK IT UP! Britian? Riots often and Not even close to the number of people we have here. You sound like someone who thinks legalizing marijuana is an answer also. You may stop the sale of weapons but you will never be able to go house 2 house and take guns- it aint happening. The gun is not the real issue.
Morgan Freeman's statement about these random shootings....
"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.
It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you kn
ow the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.
CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.
You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem."
