Do you believe the horrific school shootings are being used as an excuse for gun control?


Are there other factors that should be focused on to help prevent other tragedies? Parenting? Discipline? Positive and negative reinforcement? Mental health care? Is it the guns or the people that are the problem? Is it just because guns were available that caused this tragedy?

    Children were chosen because that is the quickest way for the government to get people to buckle on this whole gun issue. I would not be surprised at all, if this "madman" wasn't brainwashed by the Department of Defense...just for this very purpose.

    Right you are, Kasman. You bring up many valid points and have demonstrated that you have a solid grasp on this subject. The truth is the gun laws that are already on the books are not enforced because the real plan is to eradicate gun ownership.

    There will always be death, therefore lets turn our places of education into fortresses?

    Really, is this the best we can do? If so, there is no long term future for the race. We won't be happy until everyone is dead.

    cheers

    I applaud you. It would not have taken much for the CIA to brainwash this young man into committing this heinous crime. According to Congress, the CIA is responsible for a minimum of 100,000 SERIOUS human rights violations world-wide - every year!

    Won't work. You see, the criminal element won't go through the proper channels - they'll just buy their weaponry on the black market or from the U.S. Army.

    I think we should institutionalize almost every employee of the CIA and FBI, not to mention almost the entire Pentagon and most of the White House Staff. Congress admitted that the CIA commits over 100,000 serious human rights violations each year.

    The morons running the U.S. government do not enforce the 2,000 gun laws already on the books. They deliberately tempt fate, because they won't need gun laws when there are no more guns. They have been hoping and praying that this event would occur.

    The problem with America is the people it produces. Not all Americans are bad, but just enough to bring things to a halt. Homicidal maniacs aren't born - they're made. The schools teach kids they're animals and then they grow up acting like predators

    This young man was just doing what he was taught. He had been taught from a young age that there is no God or eternal implications for one's deeds. He was taught that his life was just a random act of chance and that he and the other kids are animals
