It could be because the value of life has been demished.When Roe V Wade was passed the USA said that there is no value in an unborn baby.If an unborn baby is just a piece of meat that can be destroyed,some people may assume that all people are just pieces of meat.No value to human life.Repeal Roe v Wade.

Anyway, I think I've made the points I wished to make. My aim is only to try to indicate how these tragedies might be viewed from another country.
Guns don't kill people. Failure to control ownership of them helps to kill people.
I am apparently missing something........what additional gun law would have PREVENTED this tragedy..... or even Newtown for that matter ? It is already illegal for a convicted felon to be in possession of a gun, and he had several. I don't wish to repeat the mistakes of our failed drug laws, where today drugs are available 24/7, on any street, anywhere, at prices that rival the Dollar Store. Look how difficult it is going to be to get rid of that infrastructure and the laws that go with it ? I will think LONG and HARD about any additional feel good laws.

I do think the recent shootings over the last 2 years have shed light on our disastrous mental health care system though. We have spent years unloading everyone from mental health facilities and the results are beginning to show.

I have it on good info that the killer used to be a volunteer fireman before he went to prison and they were getting ready to let him back in when he busted a spring

A view from abroad (the UK)...
Deepest sypathies to those who are affected by these tragedies. I hope lessons are learned to prevent them in the future and shared by all developed countries.
The USA seems unable to learn from the experience of other countries. Does anyone seriously think that schools, shopping malls, emergency responders,(the list seems endless) can ever be adaquately protected by armed guards? The answer would appear to be obvious and it has nothing to do with politcal ideology, Reps, or Dems.
The question is: how to stop incidents like this from happening?
The problem with banning guns is that there will be millions of powerful small-arms loose in society and owners who are adament they won't relinguish them, or their right to own them. This culture is what must be challenged and gun ownership reduced and then restricted. The USA will face this fact or suffer excessively in this way until it does. There is no other way out but to remove guns from civil society. It won't stop it completely, but experience elsewhere indicates it will minimise it.
From:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_violence_in_...
"Gun-related death rates in the United States are eight times higher than they are in countries that are economically and politically similar to it, however most countries similar to the United States have a securer social network." And,
"In 2009...66.9% of all homicides in the United States were perpetrated using a firearm".
Perhaps the most dangerous period will be that during which guns are largely removed from society. USAmericans need to work together to plan that and that is what the NRA should be advising.
It also appears to be the case that the USA has so far suffered more lightly than it might have. There were 650 people in the building when Adam Lanza struck. What if he had been as determined as Anders Breivik and attacked in such a remote location? What if he had had more powerful and fully automatic weapons? Most of the children hid in cupboards and simply out of sight. He could have fired through walls and been systematic about it. These attacks are sometimes made by more than one person. There could be a far worse US tragedy one day - despite any number of armed guards and volunteers, though that might be a useful interim measure in some circumstances while guns are removed from society.
I don't expect a rush to agreement, but I think these tragedies will continue in direct correlation with the degree and continuence of the US gun-culture.
(The guy who is posting with the ISP 'Rochester NY' is clearly a troll. He plainly gets satisfaction from antagonising people. He obviously has some mental issue. This is a very open forum and he may also be a child. Nobody should be upset by him. Personally, I see no need to respond to such ignorant comments.)
Best wishes and good luck in identifying solutions.
The answer to your question is you can't!

We pray for the family and friends of all that lost their lives. I am fairly certain they didn't know this was going to be the last day of their life DO YOU?? We had an 18 year old son that died in a very “UNUSUAL WAY”. The day he died he was all excited about getting to his cross country running class to test out his new shoes he was given free the night before. See NEWS VIDEO COVERAGE at http://allneedChrist.com . Our son was an AP calculus student in high school, cross country runner that ran 40 plus miles a week since the age of 8. When he died an autopsy was done and no drugs or alcohol were in his system.
