The Never Ending Shooting Spree of the New Millennium

    

     Come on people! Are we just going to sit back and pretend this epidemic of indiscriminate shooting sprees isn’t really happening? Do you really want to be led like sheep to the slaughter by your own inaction? Lamb chops and sweaters are not going to protect us and neither is the government unless we force them to take a stand and quit worrying about their own selfish political agendas and actually stick their own necks out instead of ours, calling for rational gun control nationwide immediately. There is no valid reason for an average citizen to need assault weapons or body armor. If you need a handgun to carry around with you, you better have a damn good valid reason like being a body guard or transporting diamonds or something, because saying you need a gun to protect yourself from people with guns just doesn’t cut it for the rest of us anymore. If you can’t protect your home or feed your family with a shotgun or single action dear rifle then why not? These are all valid rational questions that common sense dictates should have already been debated and acted upon if it wasn’t for greed, macho bravado and self-serving politics.

There have been so many school shootings, workplace shootings, and shootings in public places that we have begun to see them as all one event.  Recently, there was both a workplace shooting and a school shooting, and of course there was the famous movie theater shooting.

Perhaps the poster was referring to the rash of shooting incidents by individual people in the past decade or so.

I would imagine that all of the saturating news coverage has something to do with the fact that these incidents seem to be on the increase. To the mentally unbalanced person, there may be some allure in all of that exposure.

You nailed it, The neverending shooting sprees by our citizens who indisciminately decide to kill everyone the see because of the shortcommings are dashed expectations in thier own lives. Mass media plays a role in influenceing thier dilusional feeling of grandure in showing us all how powerful and underated they percieve themselves to be but the real accompliss is a federal government with a joke for gun control alowed to stay in place that bows to greed, bravado and politics rather than to the people that they are bound by moral ethics to protect. Reply #2 also had a valid piont that if our government was not so intent on thier own self serving interests abroad, they would have time, money and interest left over for all the social and economical problems at home,especially rational and decisive gun control.

I don't know whether you are referring to the never ending shooting spree in the name of so called War on Terror by NATO and Allied Forces or something else. If it is the former, then it will never end until the capitalistic nation has taken over the control of world resources in spite of the debts of trillions of dollars or unless the nation itself collapses. This is what the history tells us. And why should she care for the debts? Once this nation has taken over the control of the world, who will be there to collect the debts?
