Why is everyone so surprised? https://www.census.gov/popclock/ There's over 300 million of us and that average is going to continue to increase as societal pressures continue to mount. It will easily be an average of one every month by the end of year 2020.
A solution to the problem? There is none. It will be accepted as routine, just as our national average of 50+ murders a day is considered perfectly normal. Frankly, am surprised that number is not a lot higher. A population of over 300,000,000 and only 50+ murders a day? Amazingly low actually.
Every year, living in our society gets more complicated. Every year, more and more people will reach their breaking point.
As for me? Have lived my life and am keeping it simple. I deal with what I can and ignore the rest. This mess is for you younger folks to clean up. Good luck.
The "right" is greasing the skids to make this carnage a sociatal norm. Within a gun clutching culture and set of values, we shall hurtle into oblivion.
I am quietly located to avoid direct confrontation with the most unpleasant reality of a Fortress America.
I think the right sees this problem as more than a gun problem and would like to address the illness, not the symptom.
Why now? Where are the mass shootings through all those years of gun ownership, up to the present problems?
Our entire human history shows that our species is a mess.
We have two options:
1. Arm citizenry to prevent governments that goes bad.
2. Or not.
Only in America are those the only two options that some can see.

Do you agree with our politicians that if the guns are taken away there will not be mass killings.The man in Japan proved that you do not need a gun to kill 15 people and wound 45.

We agree, something has to be done about mass killings - violence? What are your suggestions?What do you think we need to do about this? - gun control, family cohesion, mental issues and the politics about it, or combination of some, all? What is your idea about this?
