  1. I am saddened that it just keeps on happening. It just shows how far we as individuals and as a society have turned away from God. And this is the result of our foolishness and our hate. But we must persevere to pray for our people and our nations.

  2. Hey Dre,
    “the pathological violence perpetrated by white males in this country.”

    This is a crazy man who happens to be a white male just like the hundreds of examples I could point to that are black males, Muslims, gay pedophiles or anyone else. It’s not a reflection of their group, it’s just crazy people. As always, it’s a good idea to explore the reasoning behind their craziness, but let’s not indict a whole group. The vast, vast majority of white males are as appauled as you.

    • HC, outside of the DC sniper (who, for record, didn’t kill his victims in mass) and VT shooter, every mass killer I can think of has been a white male. You’re doing exactly what the media and society in general does: make this into the act of a lone person. That wouldn’t be a bad idea if that also applied to other groups. After 9/11, Muslims as a whole were vilified. A shooting in Flint becomes an indictment on every young black male in the city. Virtually every group in this country is defined by and dictated to by the miscreants within their ranks…except white males. Do you REALLY think otherwise?

      • Hey Dre,
        No, I don’t. I just think it’s wrong every single time someone does it. Anyone. Every….Single…..Time. Your group. My group. Their group.

        And it’s still not the color of their skin or their gender that’s the problem.

  3. I guess my question is simple: how are certain lethal weapons regulated but not others? Why can I own grenades but I CAN own an assault rifle? Why can’t I buy ninja stars, but I CAN buy an uzi. I tell you: that NRA is something else.

    • Right! LOL! I’m not surprised that gun nuts wouldn’t care about anything else but their precious guns. Idiots.

  4. As we speak, there was another shooting. This time at Texas A & M. I can only imagine what the race and gender the shooter is.

  5. Ain’t it funny how one failed shoe bombing jerk 11 years ago still has us taking off our shoes at airports, yet multiple mass shootings aren’t enough to even get the conversation about guns going? The world we live in, I guess.

  6. The NRA’s position in light of the recent incidents of gun violence committed by two rather mentally ill people has been this;

    (sound on crickets chirping)

    Not one word has been written or released.

    Folks, nobody wants to disarm America or Americans. Calls have been made to outlaw assault weapons capable of discharging more than 16 rounds of ammunition without reloading, and a call has been made for a tightening of regulations to do everything possible to keep guns out of the hands of people who really ought not have any access to guns.

    The last two shootings were committed by people who obtained their guns legally, who also from all appearances, slipped under the radar of the authorities, because they were not criminals up to the point that they opened fire on innocent people.

    The details are not in on the purchasing habits of Wade Michael Page, who shot a dozen very peaceful people for what appears to be no reason whatsoever, but we do know that James Holmes went on a buying spree of massive amounts of ammunition over the weeks leading up to him entering the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, and for absolutely no reason, killed and wounded dozens of people.

    I doubt that anyone believes that incidents like the last two are totally preventable, but there are still steps that could be taken by gun and ammunition retailers that may or may not prevent such tragedies.

    1.) Large purchases of ammunition by anyone should be reported to the local authorities. A database needs to be set up that would provide that all gun and ammunition purchases be entered by retailers, so that people on a buying spree, or who spread their purchases across several dealers, might be flagged and checked out by law enforcement.

    2.) Gun show loopholes, that allow people to purchase guns without any background check need to be closed. I know that this is a very unpopular prospect with the NRA and gun owners, and admittedly, closing the loophole would not have prevented the last two incidents, but there are many people killed each year by people who purchased their guns at gun shows.

    3.) Functioning assault weapons, capable of delivering massive amounts of ammuntion without reloading need to be outlawed to be owned by private citizens…period. No one truly needs a weapon like that for personal protection or for hunting.

    4.) We need to have a serious discussion about the need to track the current ownership of all guns in this nation. This is being fought tooth and nail by the NRA. Such a requirement would save lives, and would protect responsible gun owners as well.

    If your car is stolen and used in the commission of a crime, the legitimate owner has never, to my knowledge, been convicted of a crime. Guns need to be tracked very much like automobiles.

  7. This country has a gun fetish. Plain and simple.

    More people shot to death. More questions. More NRA members with nothing to say, but give the NRA credit. Through their efforts just about every lunatic living in American owns a gun.

    I heard today that 19,000 people have died in the past year and a half in the Syrian civil war. Assad has unleashed deadly force against innocent civilians in a desperate attempt to retain power. His brutality has been condemned by the international community.

    Heck, here in America people are gunned down in nearly equal numbers as a matter of routine. Mass shootings have become part of our culture. They are expected, unavoidable, and inevitable.

    Few things in life are certain. Lucky for us, life in America is a little more predictable. We know that in the near future we will celebrate another mass shooting with blanket media coverage. There will be another gunman referred to by his full name. There will be stories about recent events that may have made him “snap.” There will be stories of horror and heroism. There will be interviews with survivors and grieving families. There will be graphics detailing the step-by-step events which led to the execution of each victim.

    It’s not news but it’s great ratings.

    America is gun crazy.

  8. @everyone against the NRA,
    There’s over 280 murders in Chicago so far this year. How many of those shooters do you figure are NRA members? Also, according to the FBI stats (that I would be happy to show you) The vast majority of those guns used in murders were not carried legally. 70% were purchased either illegally on the street or straw purchased by friends and family. For 20 years the NRA has fought for mandatory prison sentences for carrying illegal handguns, for 20 years Democrats have fought against it. Is it only illegal guns in big cities that are OK by you? Why are you so upset at the school shootings when they are such a small fraction of the murders in America? Why do you stand idle while your children are dying every single day with illegal guns while you won’t allow your police the power to remove them? Certainly we need to look at some of these internet purchases, but isn’t this a case of pointing the finger where the finger WANTS to point?
