    Just be glad you are asking “Why?” and not "What if?’

    Availability repeatedly facilitates the why.

    I have a close friend in the technical end of the movie business. He answered your comment very succinctly. It’s all about the next violent mega hit with a higher body count than the last, the more gruesome the better. Add in the obsession American youth have with violent video games. Add to that a decaying family structure that leaves our children growing up very insecure. Add to that a mental health system that is often more concerned with drugging their clients rather than resolving their problems. Are these issues going to be realistically addressed, or are we just going to ban assault weapons and figure that will cure the problem?

    You got a few screws lose with that last sentence of yours. Get help.

    “Availability repeatedly facilitates the why.”

    A most simplistic answer. Because a gun is available, that inspires the core reason of why someone perpetrates this kind of heinous crime? Here’s a . simplistic response: if the kid’s mother had a gun safe for her collection, or a locked closet or gun locks provided by manufacturers free when you buy a new gun, this more than likely would not have happened. Blame is like soft butter, it spreads easy, especially when some responsible (like the mother) are dead. I am actually in favor of tighter NATIONAL gun controls that are fashioned after California’s, which are extremely restrictive.

    You say these kids were murdered because of the Government exercising tyrannical power. Your logic seems breathtakingly stupid, or perhaps you could explain how you arrived at that conclusion.

    “Why?? ..Death exists because Life exists. Murder exists because some will always demand ultimate control over others. Wholesale Murder occurs when Government exercise tyrannical power over people for its on purposes.”

    Huh??? If you are trying to wax philosophically you fail miserably. Aside from that it makes absolutely no sense…

    Why? Because your right to live was invalidated by someone elses right to have a military assualt rifle in the house.

    A locked closet could have stopped this insanity? How about if assault weapons were not available in the first place? Let’s add a degree of difficulty to becoming a mass murderer.

    You say the comment was “philological”. (sic) Or you can man-up that the comment was nonsensical.

    What scares me the most about this is how people are going to respond. Your attack on movies and video games are a perfect example. Its far more likely that some of these people snapped due to being bombarded by fear fueled hopelessness and powerlessness brought on by endless sensationalized negative stories that the “news” gives us. Movies and especially video games give us a release where we can feel like we made a difference even if it is only in a make believe world.

    Thanks for expressing how I’ve seen this issue for the last two decades! Well put.
