We have a worldwide audience here, I'm curious what the rest of the world thinks about the craziness and normality of mass shootings in America.

"The reporting is routine," Obama said. "My response here at this podium ends up being routine, the conversation in the aftermath of it. We've become numb to this."

People care a lot more about their guns than they do the people dieing in these horrible massacres so you can be sure people will fight against any legislation to prevent this than they will for the legislation.

What good will more legislation do? The only people who abide by laws are...law abiding people. People who are bent on committing crime don't care about laws. High velocity lead is a much more effective deterrent to someone trying to kill you than any law.

Everyone talks about mass shootings but no one talks about the much more prevalent violent crime in America, which is inner city, black-on-black crime, usually the result of drug deals or gang affiliation.

In order to stop crazy people before they go on a rampage, what would be the standard and who decides it? Are we going to go back to involuntary commitment? More importantly though, how do you find them before it happens? Are people ready to erode not only gun rights but also privacy rights and due process? Lots of slippery slopes here.

Gun control is but a feel-good, Band-Aid solution to a much more complex issue.

Laws are like locks on a door, only work on the honest man. Someone who wants to do wrong will do wrong. People speed on the highway all the time, new laws wont stop it. Meth is illegal but still sold across the country. A killer will get a weapon and kill someone.

I am all for background and even mental screening. There are people who don't need to buy a firearm. But the moment you give away your rights your life is over. At that moment take the mark and get in the back of the line. Tyranny is here.

More guns isn't the answer.

I was so disheartened to see a thread started here on who loves guns. What, prey tell does that have to do with trading? I guess if you had a bad day trading, you could threaten to shoot your broker....or your computer.

Such a sad, sad world.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

there was a chart recently posted at CNN, where you can see a steady increase in deaths caused by guns:

The society has a lot of soul searching to do

Guns are sold like candies
Drugs are new oxygen to our young generations
Politicians are more focused on helping their mates to make more profit and off course gun manufactures are part of this

Society that has lost its identity and values

And the worst thing is its only going to get worse as no one has the balls to draw the line in the sand and put a stop to all the known issues.

Oh wait...we have to be "PC" about it as everyone has the right to everything and the only people who don't have any rights are the victims and their families....

My heart breaks every time i see and hear about this senseless shootings and so many promising lives are taken away.

That was me. And dude it's the off-topic forum. "Anything not to do with trading" as it states below the link.
