    It was alarming the first time it happened. Now it's getting pandemic.

    I know. And people are still insisting that nothing should be done.

    Whats the bet there will be a rise in the number of guns bought after this, because the only way to prevent another shooting is to buy more of the same weapon used in shootings...

    Undifferentiated RAGE. It's one of the illnesses of our age.

    These people get so angry and so frustrated that they seek to lash out at society at large.

    Their targeted victims types depend mostly on the obsessions of the perps.

    In the Aurora example, I suspect that the perp just wanted a high body count and he therefore choose a place where he knew he could kill a lot of people.


    In other words, in this case the man's rage wasn't focused on one type of victim, but rather directed at the world at large.

    It's the us versus them mentality.
    The rich against the poor and middle class.
    The Evil Corporations against the rest of the the little people.
    Christians against gays. Blacks against whites. It goes on and on.
    When false talk like this and the blame game happens, the nut jobs come out.
    We need to elect a new leader who includes all of us again as Americans.
    I for one am sick and tired of the divisiveness of this administration.

    Interesting the focus is on the weapon instead of identifying nutjobs. Newsflash folks, nutjobs can use other things as weapons. Spend your time and effort on something that will actually make us safer. Get the wackos off the streets.
