Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

That's just it. The rising level of violence and lawlessness that we are witnessing. Children are killing other children. Children are killing themselves because of out of control bullying. Children are killing their parents and parents their children. Now three mass murders just since July not even counting the one that almost killed Congresswoman Giffords. The latest one involving kindergartners.
It's not just here either. In Norway, 77 were killed in 2011 by a bombing in downtown Oslo and a shooting massacre at a youth camp outside the capital by the same man.
Just seems like the incidences are becoming more and more frequent over the past decades. It should be disturbing to us all.
We've lost our moral compass. I pray it's found again somehow. We will reap what we have sown.
A teacher once said to me back in the 1990s, "Our children have become our national debt." She was more right than she even knew.
I don't think that there are any answers; some people snap, remember that massacre of those girls at the Amish school a few years ago? Do you know the statistics on the murder rate? I think they are down. So sorry for those families, this is horrible.

On ESPNís First Take show yesterday, Parker said,ďmy question, which is just a straight honest question, is [Griffin] a brother, or is he a cornball brother?Ē

In an interview with USA Today, Griffin made his stance clear on the issue of his blackness:ďFor me, you donít ever want to be defined by the color of your skin. You want to be defined by your work ethic, the person that you are, your character, your personality. Thatís what Iíve tried to go out and do. I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I donít have to be defined by that.Ē

TO the LOWLIFE R PARKER and those who think like he does RG111 IS IN A HIGHER CLASS THAN ALL OF YOU WHO THINK THEY DEFINE BLACKNESS FU ALL THANK YOU RG111

It's harder to get a drivers license than a gun.
That's the problem.
The VA Tech killer bought guns legally. If it's spontaneous and the person wants to buy a gun, well, then a waiting period might save lives, unless he buys in on the street. Otherwise a premeditated killer will take the time to buy what he needs to commit his mass killing; like the Batman killer, the Colombine killers, the VA Tech killer...

What's the answer? No online sales of guns and ammo?

I agree with your point about anti depressant medications. But then there was that man in PA who killed his 7 year old in the car after trying to sell his guns at a gun store; it was an accident; many gun deaths caused by accidents, kids finding them etc.
I know gun laws don't solve the problem, but not much good comes from having one either beyond a false sense of security or thinking of your gun as the final solution to a problem.
People who leave a loaded gun where a child can reach it are responsible and should be held responsible. Gun safety and education should be prerequisite for owning a gun. Also, people should be required to use their gun regularly. People accidentally leave their kids in cars in the summer all the time.

My guess would be depression brought on by years of the bad economy. That and a lack of moral compass to guide the mentally strained. There have always been these situations going on but now you have the news media harping on all of them in an attack on the 2nd amendment. Don't swallow the snake oil.

I responded: The Bush legacy continues...

You idiots think that I was making a joke?

I have to say some of you people are really phucked up.

I've seen him blame liberals for focusing on the guns. If he's blaming liberals for the shooting itself, he'd be wrong.
Actually What I'm blaming are the liberal policies that leave these twenty something no real world solutions to reality. The 'no one loses' mentality is what is behind most of these things. Children are being raised without the ability to cope with the real world. So where do they turn? Movies and video games. That becomes their reality. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out! How far out there must a person be to turn a gun on a room full of 5 year olds?

Bullshit. We borrow money for less important things...big bird comes to mind.
The murderer in this latest school shooting was the son of a teacher at the school (it was her room he shot up, after killing her first), and also a college graduate from Quinnipac. He certainly had access to mental health facilities/treatment. Sometimes these nuts slip thru the cracks....
