What I noticed about our society is whenever something goes wrong, there must be a scapegoat. We need someone or something to point our fingers at and collectively say "it was your fault". And politicians use this as a platform to gain support for anti- whatever movements. Sometimes its video games, sometimes it t.v. and in this case its guns. The sad part about this whole mess is, there was no way to prevent it. And shootings like this will happen in the future as well and we have no way of stopping them. No matter what laws you pass or restrictions you place there will always be people who are absolutely crazy enough who want to hurt large numbers of innocent people.

Personally I think the internet harvested this. I mean, how many basement dwellers can you compare to the socially awkward **** up that adam was? Quite a few, with the exception of the asbergers disorder or autism. It was just a dreadfully bad combination.

What about all the guns that people already own? You're saying they should convict all gun owners after passing that law, which is technically unconstitutional, as you can't be tried for an action before the law passed?

Oh by the way, it is pretty easy. You think gang bangers actually buy their guns legally?

Fair enough, but if you have a semi-automatic M4 Carbine, you need to save up money. I assume he was planning this for a while, so if he really needed to, he probably could have found somewhere to buy it.

Guns, in my opinion, are very similar to religion. They have their benefits, but people use them as a tool to kill others. Then, instead of blaming the people, the tools are blamed. Heck, in Eastern Europe, getting guns isn't all that hard either, but you never hear about mass shootings like in the US. There are still gun related crimes, but it's never against children at school.

Also, people will kill people with whatever they have. A few years back, a man went into a yoga class and hacked up some people with a katana. In China, they are having a problem with people using knives to attack multiple people for no reason.

And what happens if someone breaks into your home and tries to kill you but you have no weapon to protect yourself with? Maybe to be allowed to buy semi-automatic rifles you need to pass a course, just like with a CCP, but that will also raise some problems. How do you define mentally stable? And with a solid definition, couldn't you essentially discriminate against whomever you want, including "mentally stable" individuals?

Honestly, right now, I don't think gun control will fix the issue. I just recently read an article that stated that mass gun crimes are not actually increasing in number, but with the extra attention on them, they are increasing in perceived risk. Increasing gun control is basically a technical solution to a non technical problem of mentally ill individuals. Unfortunately, not all technical solutions address the source of the problem but just the symptoms. The US will need to decide which they want to focus on and fix first: the source or the symptoms.

Firstly, those numbers are kind of exaggerated. Secondly, it's not really comparable. Plenty of people and organizations try their best to help children in africa. Poverty is hard to control. But the straight up murder of little kids is ******* messed up on so many more levels. You don't have to be a part of the ******* red cross to feel bad for those kids and their families.

Hey, there's no nobility in the stereotypical opinions of a couch-dwelling cynic.

The media is made up of humans with hearts, too, you know.

Do you know what I hate about tragedies like this? People on this site from countries other than the U.S.A. began to act like their country is pure paradise, and all they do is criticize our gun laws. The roots of crime and murder rates go deeper than gun laws.

Seriously? Can you imagine the ******* message we'd be sending if we treated this as "just another story about people dying"? Little kids ******* died, dude. It was a mass, public shooting. Keyword "public." The news media is just helping people get in the know, its not as if it wasn't going to spread like wildfire without them.

I think this is one of those things that need to be known by the whole country in my opinion. Due to being a very devastating event involving children, maybe politicians can be pushed by the people to come up with a solution because we been having shootings ever few months this year.

No... for self preservation sake it just doesn't bother you because it doesn't directly influence your life. There's nothing there that makes you a bad person. If you had sympathy it would probably be insincere anyway because you haven't had anything similar happen to you. Personally it is an insult to me if someone sympathizes with my feelings and has no idea what they are sorry for other then knowing it is an upsetting process in their eyes

Difference: The Titanic happened close to a century ago, 9/11 happen just over a decade ago. More people died on 9/11 I believe. Also, the Titanic was an isolated incident, 9/11 was a premeditated terrorist attack.

There's an interview for a Criminologist (or whatever they are called) on BBC in regards to that German shooting a while back. He basically warned not to make these things huge news - don't start the story with sirens blazing, don't make the killer out to be an anti-hero etc etc because the more you do this the more copycat killers spring up weeks later in local areas.

The stories should be made locally and as boring as possible.

anti heroes are more like people that like to punish/kill bad guys. not really good guys since they're usually not doing it out of any moral obligation, but because they like it, or because they have a big ass grudge against evil-doers

First of all, guns are illegal in Sweden and that works out pretty good.

and second, you can't really think that if we made meth and heroine legal, less people would use it.

This is the most retarded argument i have heard today.

I never claimed less people would use it. It's just pointing out the fact that meth, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, etc are illegal in most places, but people still manage to get drugs. Even if guns were made illegal, people would still manage to get them. THAT'S the point I was trying to make, but apparently it went over your head.

Making things illegal makes them happen less often, huh? How many people are in rehab, and how many people are in prison for use/possession of drugs? Making it illegal didn't really help there, because the same amount of people are still doing it. Considering that most shootings are done with guns that have been obtained illegally in the first place, I really don't believe that it would solve anything.

You can't be serious..

No, the amount of people doing it would be alot more if you would legalize meth and heroine (atleast try to think for **** sake), how about you try to compare the amount of gun accident in USA with the amount of gun accidents in Sweden then.

That's got to be the stupidest argument of all time.......

Don't you think there would be a lot more meth and heroine around if it was legal?

in every European country, guns are illegal, and we have never had any major problems. The death rate is way lower on the other side of the Atlantic!
- You might be right about the fact, that there are so many guns in circulation, that it will be hard to make it illegal. But over time, it will stop.

- You are way to conservative. You because it says in your consitution that you have the right, it dosen't mean you can't chance it. how many school shootings does it take before you realize it?

I believe that it is a fairly sound argument. If drugs weren't a major issue, there wouldn't be nearly as many rehab clinics. It's illegal, but people seem to do it an awful lot.

And considering that most people that commit these murders obtain their guns illegally, I really don't think that making it illegal would solve anything.

Think about this: If just ONE person was carrying a weapon in the Colorado movie theater, they could have prevented that tragedy, or at least stopped it before it got to that point.
If it was legal to conceal carry in schools, and just ONE teacher/magical fairy princessistrator had a weapon, the recent one could also have been prevented, or stopped before it got bad.

Don't blame the guns. Blame the people that get the guns without going through the proper means.
