    Of these 9 worst shootings in modern US history, 4 of them have been in this decade, in fact in the last 5 years. 2 in the 1980s, one in the 1990s, 1 in the 1960s.

    Something's going wrong in the US it seems. One a year for the last three years....

    There is a lot going wrong in the US. It is now the GOPs turn to try to fix some of that.

    There's more of us, we are living on top of one and other.

    small cities in the NE are filling up with people leaving NY, small towns that had a sheriff and 2 deputies now need an entire force.


    and, imo, I think internet access is driving people nuts.

    Living on top of one another. That's so cute.

    Singapore population density, 7,804 per KM2, murder rate 0.25
    Bahrain population density, 1,917 per KM2, murder rate 0.54
    Malta population density, 1,353 per KM2, murder rate 0.96
    Maldives population density, 1,154 per KM2, murder rate 0.85
    Bangladesh population density, 1,134 per KM2, murder rate 2.51

    USA population density, 33 per KM2, murder rate 4.88

    Yeah, I mean, take the top 5 countries for population density and compare their murder rate, then find a country with a population density 300 times lower or more, and find a murder rate much higher....

    We are independent minded people that are not used to being crowded.

    thanks for proving you can't, uhm, feel things through.

    To quote Obama on an issue I agree with him on "democracy isn't easy. It's tough work".

    There are no easy answers. Americans believe in liberty, individual pursuits and Free Will as bestowed by God. They also believe in challenging themselves and internal locus of control, their success or failure their own.

    That places alot of stresses in a society and some cannot handle it. It's a better system than that in Canada or other socialist countries in which justice doesn't exist, all forms of expression and media variety do not exist. Liberty like this has some consequences and some cannot handle their freedom in a responsible manner.

    Let's face it, callously taking the lives of innocent people is as cowardly as it gets. You will find the best and worst in a society of free men. Many who willingly sacrifice themselves for others, and others who simply look to take as the dirtbags involved in senseless mass killings.
