School shootings, military base shootings, and now the theater. You can crybaby around about people who are crazy and how they needed psychiatric help and how did that nut get a gun? You can scream for more gun control if you like and hope that there will be no more guns and then there will be no more problems. However you are wrong, the media has misled you, and you are following the ill given advice of a broken society.
Demonize the shooter; due to the atrocity they are responsible for. But not once do people realize the root of the problem. The love of our society has waxed cold, we are exposed to it more now due to smart phones and the web, and many people can't take it. Some simply go to the psychiatrist office and get help to deal with it and never commit a crime and you never know what they are going through. Some simply snap and try to prove a point.
The point that these shooters are proving to us as a nation is it is time to stop. Stop treating people like crap. Stop the name calling, the trolling, the cyber-bullying, and for God's sake start loving your neighbor as yourself. Treat eachother like people. Drop the competitive materialistic BS and realize we are all God's children regardless how we relate to the Great Architect of The Universe or by what name we call him. The bible prophesies of the love of many waxing cold. This is how it looks someone is pushed over the edge and they take others with them to get even.
I wonder how many mass murders it will take for society to understand that you can't run around calling people names, bullying, trolling, and not caring about your neighbor. I wonder how many good laughs people have to get out of getting someone riled up only to see them hurt others before we as a society say enough is enough. And start chastising those who do these things that push people over the edge; instead of laughing along with them, saying nothing, or joining in?
Until we start firmly making it clear that this loveless self-centered mentality is not acceptable in our society by action; we deserve every massacre we get.

fully agree with you and also we are living in the last days as the Bible has already alluded to.Yes we live in a cold,selfcentered society that will only get worse as time goes on. But God is still IN CONTROL!!!!

Great points you have...We should also start teaching our kids and society that not everyone is going to be the best, the richest, the most famous, the greatest, or the most important individual in any given situation.
Possibly this creates people who can never measure up, invariably fail, blame society and flip out.
We can only do our best and that is good enough.. Nothing else should be required.
The line between fantasy and reality seems to be very much blurred in many people today..They think life is a movie or a video game....We don't have enough shrinks on the planet to take care of all of the nuts out there.

Family is no longer an extension of the individual ,community is no longer an extension of the family,Government is no longer an extension of the community. It's the WHY SHOULD I SOCIETY.

It doesn't just "create people who can not measure up, invariably fail, blame society, and flip out." It creates people who are trying to measure themselves by the wrong measuring stick. Success and whether or not we belong should only be measured by one thing; heart.
But how much money could the top 1% make if they didn't have us all running round trying to measure up to the wrong stick? We wouldn't feel the need to all become collectors of stuff and be out spending money. Heaven forbid we get sold the idea that we don't really need it and time with the family really is more important.
Then we would find ourselves reversing fuzz ball's "WHY SHOULD I." If we did, people would truly be a part of something important again; and that is much more important than trying to be important yourself and a greater success.
