Remember how shocking the 17 deaths at Columbine were?

*correction: 13, 12 kids and 1 adult, plus the 2 shooters.

For some reason, it has become a fairly regular way for Americans to express themselves. Maybe America is ****.

Looks like it’s making the Top 5 school shootings lists.

We’re twisting again like we did last summer!

Seriously this plus all the other gun deaths we’ve already had in schools this year.

I’m just wondering outloud trying to figure out if there might be anyway to prevent this in the future. This might seem like a stupid question, I’m not sure, but... can people without guns shoot people?

But then the criminals would be the only ones with guns. You know what happens when only one side has guns? Hitler. Congratulations, liberals, you just welcomed the Holocaust. And don't come at me with ridiculous notions of enforcing gun bans when we find criminals with guns, we both know that that never works so just stfu and let me go deaf at the shooting range to get my mind off of how microscopically tiny my dick is.

Several different issues to discuss. Of course gun laws, but more importantly why the **** are we doing it? Cause you can't just blame guns. This is much more complicated than just guns.

It’s a fad.

Simultaneous increase in selective awareness and isolation.

No it's not? You need a gun to shoot somebody. Obviously you require someone willing to kill to fire the gun, but you are always going to have people in a country of millions who want to kill others so having firearms available is insane imo.

What does my head in with it all is not really the fact that the gun laws won't change, its how vehemently a lot of people oppose it, and seem genuinely offended by it.
