The amount of anger in this country's young population clearly reflects in the mass killings the last 20+ years. Regardless of the weapon used the perpetrators would have killed.

Start addressing the failures of parents in today's society and than you may be able to lower the frequency of these atrocities.
There is a huge difference in kids who actually had good parents the first seven years of life. Drugs are a big problem inside school, take away the movie and game problem and I think a kid who had it rough the first seven then took drugs and the result might be similar to what we are seeing.

In any case I thought your post was better than the rest.

Fast,

I appreciate your comment.

My bride and I have talked a great deal about these sickening events and conclude that until we all really address the fundamental issues of our society's failures to this youngsters murderous events will continue.

It may be safer here compared to where they are coming from and this is still the greatest country IMO.

He says that Republicans want fewer immigrants, but then implies that most people are opposed to that position with this:

Quote:
Depending on the poll, up to about 85 percent of Americans say they support legal status for the so-called Dreamers, who have received temporary protection from deportation under former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Immigration and DACA are two different things. There is no evidence that Republicans want fewer immigrants. There is strong evidence that they want fewer illegal immigrants. And it is clear that the Democrats are trying to use DACA as a lever to get much more sweeping amnesty.

Many on the right are sympathetic to the plight of the DACA kids, and would like to see a clean fix. No one has presented a clean fix yet.

The polling data he presents on guns is suspect. Evidence shows that the results of polls on guns can be greatly manipulated by how the questions are posed. Questions about "assault rifles" are particularly suspect.

But the polls are not relevant. What is relevant is the 2nd Amendment, and that is not going to be changed. End of story.

I don't know how it seems to get more likely instead of less likely with each new addition to the count, but they play video games and watch movies all over the wide wide world.

Not perfect, but better than today's rules.
More utter nonsense. None of those things describe conditions under the AWB. You could still buy a new AR-15 as long as it didn't have 2 or more evil looking features, like a bayonet mount or a folding stock.

You could still buy high capacity magazines holding 20 or 30 rounds, as long as they were manufactured before 1994. There were millions of them in circulation, a lot of them military surplus.

No AR-15 or similar weapon has or had a non-detachable magazine. That does describe a lot of .22 rifles and most shotguns.

Who makes this stuff up? You need to find a new staff of writers.
