What is going on... This man took the lives and ruined the lives of many innocent people and he says he ruined his childhood...

Why is it only after the fact criminals have regret for their crimes.

Who are the adults raising these kids who would pick up guns and kill and harm others.

I wish our laws would give us citizens a fair chance to live in peace without the fear of being shot and ban all weapons of destruction. I hate living in a society where I worry about the safety of my loved ones and all innocent people.

Haven't we had enough already.

R.I.P. This is the same exact reason, why I live a self contained *(not same thing as anti social) life. Why? This is due to the fact that homicide is illegal. If my brother or some punk, where to piss me off or make my life a living heck, I can only have a death-wish but CANNOT do anything about it. If my dog sinks it's teeth in any part of my body, I can easily murder her with a rifle, if i am in a rage and no arrests will be ever made. It is not the same with humans. They start talking bullshit, about 30 years imprisonment or execution by hanging. Since I cannot murder jerks and I cannot afford to be inconvenienced by the death-wishes and/or being constantly irritated by a third party, I'd rather live a self contained life and have very few "friends" & hence have zero death-wishes; rather than socialise and be tormented by fantasies of homicides.
