I have ideas on how to lessen this seemingly daily scenario in America, but since none of them match up with either crazily polarized side in the debate they both see me as the enemy rather than the one to find sensible compromise and end this madness. Even the idea of compromise is unfathomable to them at this point.

And so I am sure the truckloads of thoughts and prayers on their way, the gun debate cycle spiraling to nowhere gets an extra little push to keep it going and let the mantras and obfuscations begin.

American style democracy. Everyone has the democratic right to guns.

Another unfortunate event that suggests it may be time to examine the change society has undergone in the last 70 years. Something is driving the world wide mindset decline in "successful" cultures.

There have been longer periods of peace and stability that were rudely interrupted by genocide and civil war. Don't kid yourself. Pick up a history book.

The problem is not the Second Amendment. Guns are a symptom, not the disease. That said, it does help to treat the symptom, but those who keep insisting treatment of that one symptom alone will be a cure all are as outside reality as those who say we need more of the symptom to finally have wellness.

I'm scratching my head over that. I think the symptom is the wish to kill people. The disease may be harder to define, but as you said yourself, it has happened before. Meanwhile, access to guns as in this case and in the case in Austria in the previous World article appears to be the vector for producing the outcome.

The motive for the shooting is also unknown.

He wanted a shot bar ?

Don't blame guns! Gun-lovers know full-well the man could have easily done the exact same thing with a pillow or a cup of dry rice so long as he had the intent. Just another day in 'Merka! Yee-haw!

Do,do,do,do,do doo, it's just another day.
