Again, can't fault that second amendment. What a truly sad state of affairs.

Three mass shootings in as many days. One might wonder how.

"This is very tragic event," Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler said during a news conference. "This is something that cannot occur in our community."

Well you say that, but...

The solution is no doubt more guns, not fewer.

Anywhere else in the world would be classified as a dangerous country, but it's Merica.

I'm now no longer surprised at these mass shootings.

Americans have become so numb to the fact, just another day in the land of the free.

Say all you want pro-NRA and anti-gun control fanatics, but aren’t you glad you are in Japan and not the U.S.?

"Say all you want pro-NRA and anti-gun control fanatics, but aren’t you glad you are in Japan and not the U.S.?"

No, they're not; Japan is riddled with crime and violence.

That's what I keep on reading on this site, therefore who would feel safe in such a place?!

Plus Los Angeles plus Maryland... What an astonishingly VIOLENT country America is. TV shows, movies, video games -- they all feed the insatiable HUNGER Americans have for VIOLENCE. The rest of the world shudders in HORROR.

You mean the exact same movies, TV shows and video games that are enjoyed all over Japan and most of the rest of the world? It's got nothing to do with it gun violence. Americans don't have any more of a 'hunger' for violence than anywhere else.

..and yes..the homocide figures in the developed European countries are way lower than those in the US :)

...and yet... I only am saying that the correlation between gun violence and violent media is unrelated, not that violence doesn't exist. The same media is consumed all over the world. It does not cause violence or indicate a 'hunger' for it. Otherwise, just about every country has the same 'hunger' for violence.
