I was born in the United States and take pride in my country. It is not perfect but it is where I want to live. Our country is going through an ordeal now and I am so proud of the way we have joined together to support the families of those slain. Together we will get through this and be stronger for it. It is somewhat sad to think that it takes a tragedy to come together as a nation.

Stricter gun control will not stop this. We as a society need to learn to recognize the warning signs of a disturbed personalty and get them the help needed. If the reports are correct, the man who did the shooting was not quite right and someone should have intervened long ago. I have been around firearms all my life and have never once thought about using any of them against a fellow human beings. I do not think it is American madness, but madness in general.
