    GUNS have been around for CENTURIES, but we never had MASS KILLINGS before like we see today, so the question is simple, WHY IS IT that it's the YOUNGER GENERATION that have turned into the MASS MURDERERS?

    OBVIOUSLY this ISN'T a GUN ISSUE. It's a WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE YOUNGER GENERATION ISSUE.

    Explain that...

    You should explain why you think its a younger generation issue? You do realize most mass murders occurred prior to the 70's?

    These kids do not value life. They are learning growing up hating themselves on a social-media led world where answers, results and gratification do not come nearly fast enough to meet the demands of their instantaneous, push-button world. They are seeing the world around them and saying they want out.

    Good observation... but is that really bad enough to drive them to mass murder?

    Do they think murdering people will make them feel better? Who's teaching them that? Where do they get that idea?

    For the same reason young men get in scraps at bars, or do violent things in general. Angry, testosterone, uncaring, disenchanted. In this case, as with most I presume; mental and emotional problems contribute to their actions.

    There is no easy solution.

    The other component IMO is media glorification. We need to stop naming them, and putting out their pictures and their manifesto and their social media crap etc etc. They need to be declared non-persons because the fame is appealing to someone who is at the end of his rope. "This way, everyone will know my name, at least I will be famous!"

    The message that life is cheap and full of hate is coming from them from every direction: their families, the news, their schools, movies, social media, everywhere. They know it is WRONG, but unlike the NY man who is cutting up his AR-15 as a symbol of his rejection, these kids are simply cutting up themselves and their part of the world and rejecting life. Pink Floyd's The Wall has finally come to fruition.

    We've had those things forever and never had mass school shootings.

    Times were a lot tougher back in the depression, and I we didn't have kids going to school and shooting everyone. There's something about these kids that has infected their brain... and dare I say it has something to do with what their teaching them in schools, since schools are always their target.

    Why don't they go shoot up a walmart, or somewhere else? It's got something to do with schools, and who runs the schools?
