I think people will always look for reasons to explain tragedy. And I don’t see what is so bad about trying to prevent bad things from happening. If we took that attitude, we’d all still be smoking and driving after drinking.

No, we can’t control everything, unfortunately. I am not sure there’s evil as a force per se, but there are people who have evil actions.

I wonder how long this thread will last…

Wanting something to change is not ignorant thinking that nothing can ever change and we are just victims of fate is what is ignorant.

I think depending on faith and randomness to fix things is willfull ignorance, to be honest. Want to know how I know this is fixable? Other developed countries don’t have gun violence like we do. Sticking your head in the sand and saying “evil did it!” is a convenient way to fix nothing and feel ok about it.

300 million people in the US. 12,000 gun related deaths every year
60 million people in the UK. 35 gun related deaths every year.

You do the math.

he spelling and the way you are speaking sound as if you are impaired in some way. Maybe take a deep breath, a step back from the boards to sort through whatever is making you so riled up and maybe phone a friend or tune out from whatever is upsetting you.

@catracha:  Part of the solution lies in helping to fix the disturbed, or “evil” as you put it, people who do these things. These things occur because humans let them happen, or do them.

As a Canadian, I never understood why some people in the States always felt it so necessary for ordinary citizens to go around carrying concealed handguns and such.

In Canada, we have a ton of guns (it’s true!) However, we are not allowed to have handguns. We also are not allowed to have semi-automatic or automatic guns. To my understanding, these are things that people in the States do?

Why? What possible use do normal everyday people have for these non-hunting guns?

You know what is kind of disgusting?  Its easier to buy an AK-47 than a box of Sudafed in this country.

 

We need tougher gun control.  We need mandated psychological exams before applicants can purchase guns.  Also, annual registration of firearms would be nice too.  I have to register my car every year so the State can keep tabs on me, why not guns?

In my opinion, complacency is ignorant.

@catracha:  it’s a halluva lot easier to go down the street, buy a gun & shoot out a classroom than it is to build a bomb and set it.

remove the gun store down the street, remove the guns, start SOMEWHERE for heavens sake. Doing nothing is helping no one.
