    And I can't be sad any longer. Now I am just angry.

    I'm not even angry any longer. Some things are just hard facts of life. Being shot by a random crazy is the American way of death. You can't argue with that philosophy.

    Unbelievable, these things aren't even making the news here in Australia these days and I'm at the point where I no longer care.

    I understand. How many times does the crazy neighbor down the road have to hit himself on the head with a two by four before you just begin to ignore him?

    Guns have always been around in recent history, and we absolutely should talk about guns and restrictions and what is or is not constitutional. I hope we can also talk about the increase in active shooter incidents. We’ve always had guns in the US. Why is the number of active shooter incidents increasing and what can we do about it?

    The problem is the complete lack of mental health services in this country.
    We not only have the worst health care in the 1st world, but the worst mental health care.
    Ignoring the problem won't make it go away, and that's the current plan it seems.

    Don't need a gun for mass carnage, guy in WI drove his pickup truck into a PARADE and killed six.

    True, but an even higher percentage of Americans own cars, yet car mass murders are very very low in number.

    What can we as individuals do to help prevent this? This is a nightmare, why do people just decide to one day kill innocent people? It can happen anywhere.

    Does anyone know where we might be able to find out how many of the mass shooters were on drugs for ADHD, etc? Maybe there might be a common thread we can find.

    I thought mental health evaluation was already part of the process to obtain a gun:confused:

    There might be some sort of side effect or withdrawl effect we might not know about.

    Good. That should be common praxis among news corporations.

    In this violent culture if you are going out to get milk at Walmart you need to arm yourself!

    Yep, that's the solution to gun violence: more guns.
