    What is the answer?

    Something, or nothing? If something, what?

    Actually reports are that what happened are actually on the decline not increasing. One thing we know, if you think there is a problem, what we are doing is not the right thing. So to answer your question, for yourself, think about the way society has been moving and what we need do to reverse that trend.

    .

    Nothing of substance on this issue can be properly addressed until all parties involved can agree on the facts. I see both ends of the argument spouting off very convincing stats, unfortunately those stats completely contradict those from the other side.

    The next thing that has to happen is the presentation of a specific list of laws the pro gun control folks want, so at least we all know what the hell we're arguing about.

    All I'm seeing and hearing right now is wild-eyed ranting.

    The re-opening of mental assylums. The ones that never should have closed in the first place. Guns, videogames, music, tv, and all the other BS don't kill people...Fucking mental patients kill people. Lock them up. Proof of needed medication is enough.

    You are asking the wrong question.
    The right question is what has changed in out society that produces this result?
    So what is making this happen?
    Have availability of guns changed?...no.
    So what has changed?
    The answer to that - is the solution.

    That's easy - more guns.

    In every state that has enacted conceal carry laws, crime has gone down. Sorry libs, it's a simple fact.

    As far as schools, well trained, well armed security. Problem solved!
