In the majority of these cases, the shooter had mental and emotional issues. Why doesn't Congress do something to help those folks, like doing away with restrictive privacy laws that allow such folks to go undetected? I have nephew who has been hospitalized two or three times for emotional problems, yet because such info is not readily available for background checks, he owns three handguns.

When are our politicians and law makers going to have the courage, commitment, selflessness, integrity and honesty sufficient to dig deeper into the core issues that underlie the killings and other violent crime that takes place on a daily basis in this country.

Why do so many children & young adults in this country have a lack of a properly developed conscious?

Why do so many people have such a little regard for human life?

Why do people refuse to honor and uphold the rule of law when ever it suits them?

Why are kids drawn to gangs that glamorize and normalize violence and killing?

Why do so many find notoriety and 15 minutes of fame more desirable and worthwhile than personal integrity, leaving peacefully, and character?

Why are so many becoming mentally ill and not getting the help that they need.

Then when are we as voters going to have the courage, commitment, integrity and unity enough to demand that our politicians start solving these problems or be relieved of their offices in short order.
