The simple fact is a dozen or more factors are involved in ever one of these tragedies and the politicians and media act like only one thing was the cause. That's never true.
Mental illness, gun access, competitive culture, selfish culture, bullying and yes, violent media, are all involved. Unless we are going to radically change our entire country though the un-political thing to say is, bluntly: cost of doing business.
Overall violent crime is way down.
Well said Stinging. It's just so much easier for those on the left to find scape goats however, the NRA thing I don't get, the NRA didn't give these mentally ill people guns or train them to kill. All the NRA advocates is safe gun use and protecting the second amendment, yet liberals vilify them for it.
It's nice that there's at least one group out there looking to protect constitutional rights,because the left in the US certainly doesn't.
And Beamer, you've yet to give any insight on what to do either, except for bans that won't do anything since criminals generally don't follow laws to begin with, that's why they're criminals.
