Esco,
The only people that should fear a gun in the hands of law abiding citizens are tyrannical despot politicians and criminals!
Which one are you?

It's impossible to entirely stop tragedies like the Colorado shooting. Same with suicide bombings. It cannot be done. Politicians will bloviate their big mouths every day for selfserving purposes and the slaughter will go on.

Who knows, maybe someday someone will actually take up the politicians on their promise to lesson the slaughter only to make it far, far worse. In the politics of today, who listens to basic common sense and the lesson of history?

That's BS and just as bad as saying that guns are responsible for these shootings. If either claim were true, then all video gamers would be using their guns to kill everyone around them.
But they are! This is the second time in Colorado alone!
Banning video games makes just as much sence as banning guns and might just make a difference!
Besides, the Constitution is just an out dated old bunch of laws written by a bunch of ignorant white men!
We should let Obama write us a new one!

Weed, Cocaine, Heroin, Crack are all illegal and cant be purchased anywhere. Good thing those laws are working. Same with murder, its illegal to kill, but they still do it. It's illegal to steal but people still do it. You make guns illegal and theft and crime will rise along with it. You also will take away the natural right of citizens to defend themselves and their family.

You don't manage exceptions and call them the rule. People as individuals are rational and we should not be herded and molded based on the actions of the irresponsible and demented few. (You cant argue that people are not rational, otherwise society would be in constant state of chaos)

Good thing we are a complacent country that wants to become indentured servants at the hands of our government.

Good thing the civil war was fought for our natural right to pursue happiness in our own way without becoming slaves to mob rule.

This is a republic and the constitution is non-negotiable. We were the greatest country in the world for what underlies beneath us to keep us free. If you want to become Europe and everywhere else, then we have lost our edge and will succumb to their standard of living.

As far as I'm concerned we should start child labor and sex rings. You are much safer here than in Europe. (Anyone seen Taken?)

Man have we lost our way. The media is to blame for these continued occurrences. If they didnt make this stuff national news people wouldn't continue doing these things.

baby,

I think you are confused.

I'm not for banning guns and I'm also not for banning video games.

Maybe I'm the one confused by your posts.

People were committing mass murders before the media existed and they'll continue to do so. I don't believe for a SECOND that these sickos do this type of thing to gain notoriety. They do it because they are broken. They should be put down like a rabid animal. There is absolutely no healing someone as broken as these individuals.
Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

I disagree with the lack of blame on media. Hollywood has promoted violence and profanity for decades. Today we are seeing more and more of it with the younger generation.

Today's young generation has no shame in anything they may say or will do.

Parents and schools teach little to no values, self-responsibility, or ethics to the young.

The courts excuse this behavior by not making swift and speedy trials, minor consequences for actions. Cases drag out over time with attorney BS and the victims have to deal with their situation for years and years with little closure.

Many facets of our society is flawed. Education, teaching values and morals of previous generations and, hollywood and the government/courts.

Gun control is not the answer. It's just a pivot point for politicians and certain groups that like to shout.
This is a republic and the constitution is non-negotiable. We were the greatest country in the world for what underlies beneath us to keep us free. If you want to become Europe and everywhere else, then we have lost our edge and will succumb to their standard of living.
You do realize that there are european countries that have a much higher standard of living, education system, healthcare system and lower crime rates than the US.

Thinking that we are the #1 land of the free and highest standard of living country today is an old pipe dream that's eroded away by the government, lack of education in the general populace and outsourcing the bulk of our workforce over the last few decades.

I'll never want to live anywhere else but to say what you did about our standard of living is truly blind in today's world.

Missed that. Sorry bro

few more bits to add.

Bulk of the media is portraying this as a random act of violence by an individual.

It's not a random act of violence as this individual had a purpose.

The constant exposure to violence on the screen and on the news in the US anaesthetizes individuals as to the absolute end of human life.

Imagine having films like Kill Bill, SAW, etc.. in the 50's and video games COD available to children (ages under 12 ish). There have always been shooters and horror flicks but the realism today is insane. Really think about that.

Life in the USA is not a movie set and there is no director to say "Cut" upon which everybody comes back to life and goes to lunch.

The gun vs knife: It is far more difficult to stab someone to death rather than simply pulling the trigger to attain the same result.

Pulling a trigger is too easy and psychologically removes the shooter from the action and in this case, it may appear that he is anaesthetized to the violence of the Joker.

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

SSN Pru,

I was just trying to make a point. I don't think that banning anything, except murderers, will solve our problems.
Although the violent video game/movie thing is a valid point.
