Because these unfortunate events always bring up the argument of gun control, I just wanted to put in my two cents. We as a society have begun to glorify killing others (movies, video games, etc.) One of the things that I can see decreasing the number of shootings we have is less about restrictions, and more about education. First of all; gun owners should have gun safes, period. Secondly; all gun owners and children of gun owners need to understand how dangerous guns are and how to properly use guns- perhaps mandatory classes, like getting a driver's license. Lastly; we need to stop glorifying violence as a society. Unless we change our attitudes, then we cannot hope to change our actions.

We also need to start making real efforts to end the attitude that we are entitled to a personal arms free for all. The only way to do this is to start putting at least a modicum of restrictions as to what kind of guns people own, and who can own them.

what has changed over the years. We had just as many gun loving people years ago. Guns left in pickups on gun racks. guns were left in closets or hung above the fire place. Guns have not changed. peoples attitudes and the value of a human being has changed. Wonder if roe verse wade has had any effect on this attitude about life.
