    I was half listening to the Nightly News last night, when I heard of a shooting at Lone Star State College just outside of Houston. THAT'S WHERE OUR GRAND DAUGHTER GOES! Yikes! I had better call our son and see what's up. Thank God it was the "other" campus, but still there was another school shooting.

    Without reading the story I can guess the perp is a male?

    Seriously, we need to start testing males from about the age of 12.

    I don't believe it's a "Hollywood" or a "Video Game" issue-I know plenty of girls and women who watch gross (Saw type movies or play Single Shooter Video Games") and do not go out and commit violent crimes. And I don't know anyone who jumped off a bridge because Billy Joe McCallister did.

    I do question this namby pamby "you are the only shell on the beach and Mommy and Daddy think you are the most super special person on the planet and your light shines the brightest cause you are a super special poopsie doopsie" blah blah blah, as well as "No Child Fail's" so lets give everyone a A, and if that doesn't work pass them anyway. If that doesn't work let's lower the standard so that the real achievers don't get any credit(frustration maybe?)..... That's a helluva way to prepare them for the real world, when Mr. Snarf won't hire them at the 90K they know they deserve (cause Mommy and Daddy said............).

    I can, and so can you go back through history and figure out it's the male part of the human species that commits the majority of these horrible crimes. So test. Not some silly "let my family Dr. ask 5 questions and out we go" type tests. Let's dig a little deeper, shall we.

    But we won't, because it's "not my child", so let's find something else to blame.

    The dog ate my homework.

    Amen!!!

    And as for "something else to blame"...? It must be the gun's fault, right? Nasty, evil gun.

    Not!

    Please don't get me wrong...my heart goes out to those involved. I'm not intending to make light of their pain and suffering in any way, shape or form. They have nothing but my concern and sympathy.

    What frustrates me is how the media will twist this. Again. Get to the root of this stuff...yes! But if guns are banned, only the law-abiding citizens will comply...and the rest of us will be S.O.L...and left with nothing but knives, rocks and maybe Tazers to defend ourselves against the criminals that have the guns.

    I can't say I necessarily agree with the male part, though I think you're correct in that they've (to my knowledge) all been male. But there's definitely a screw loose in how this has been approached. Something definitely needs to be done.

    Sorry...I'll get off my soapbox, now.

    Praying for those involved in the shooting...along with their friends and families.

    There is a criminal profile for serial killers and most of these shooters just so happen to match it.
    I have no idea "why" a particular type of individual is more prone to commit a certain crime. But I imagine that it is way more complex than we can point a finger at.

    It's beyond sad - it is totally sick.
    What requirement is there to carry a gun to school? Just CrAZee imho.

    No, America's gone mad. Super easy accessibility to guns + a culture that frowns on law enforcement = an excuse to go on a spree.

    I know many will say I'm wrong, but there are just as many who say I'm right. People won't stand for this forever, and President Obama is taking this seriously. We may have to sink a few more rungs on the ladder before people wake up, but I continue to have faith that we'll turn around.

    I'm not trying to encourage a brouhaha here but I am very curious about this particular statement. I have read it over and over and over again as justification for having an armed population but often wonder where are the stats to back it up. In all of the G8 countries with gun control (not banned - just controlled) the rate of violent crimes involving weapons are a small percentage per capita of those seen in America. Does anyone have any stats proving this as a fact or is it just popular fiction that sounds semi reasonable?

    Again, no intention of being confrontational but I am very curious as to which statistics prove this theory.

    I am enjoying the coverage on CNN with Piers Morgan and his Gun Control In America series. There are many opinions being thrown about, people are getting "hot under the collar", but at least the "conversation" is happening.
    It's time to stop ignoring the problem and take action.

    It's time to start the debate and make compromises on both sides.

    I'm pro second amendment. I own a gun and have for 30+ years.

    But... I have no use for an assault rifle. I don't want nut jobs with Mommie issues to snap and execute innocent school children or people who just went to a theater to watch a movie. Really? Are you serious?

    My proposed compromise is we let everyone keep their pistols and shotguns. No one is trying to take away the right to bear arms. But ban assault rifles, ok? They are only designed to kill large groups of people in a few seconds.

    The Constitution was amended in the 1860s to prohibit slavery. It was amended in the 1920s to give women the right to vote. It was amended in the 1950s to stop racial segregation in public schools.

    Morals change as our country evolves every few decades and I think it is time to ban assault weapons.

    So, now we think that "banning" an assault weapon is going to turn criminals/killers/the mentally unstable into law abiding citizens? Me thinks that they could care less what the laws are, but then, I've been wrong once or twice in this life.

    We're the most violent of all industrialized nations. Wonder why that could be. icon_rolleyes.gif It's time we took a good look at ourselves in comparison to all other industrialized nations, because the international community is certainly casting a jaundiced eye in our direction. We're moving backward rather than forward. But I feel more confident now that we have a president who is taking this issue seriously. Yes! It is time to ban assault weaponsI I think we need to also enforce our existing laws and rework the judicial system. We'll eventually see the light at the end of this dark tunnel.

    This thread will no doubt land in the pan since it is a topic other than supporting the status quo and/or erudite discussions on kitty cats. icon_lol.gif
