Some reasons for these shootings:* break up of the traditional
family, and its values* mental illness* lack of morals, and
conscience broadcast through out the entertainment industry.* effects, and
stress, stemming from corrupt political leadership
Until mental health professional can reliably predict who is going to commit
violent crimes such as this, things are unlikely to change. Adding alcohol and
drugs to rage can create an explosive combination. Restricting access to
firearms is a start, but cars, knives, and other readily available potentially
dangerous devices pose a greater challenge.
Instead of realizing that no laws proposed by liberals would have prevented any
of this, instead lets continue to blame the current gun laws for every death
involving a gun, as if changing the laws would prevent these things(it
wouldn't)This guy did it all legally and didn't use any
military style weapons that liberals propose banning or making it more difficult
to obtain.And until someone can tell me how they're going to
put together a list of all "border-line" crazy people who should never
have a gun, talking about spending more on mental health doenst hold any weight.
Amazing logic on display.A crazy guy who had been in therapy for
fifteen of this 23 years premdetates multiple murders, and while all this is
going on has three contacts where local cops visit him and decide he is no
threat.Then, he finally snaps, and uses a knife to murder three
people, before hopping in his exotic car, and drives along trying to hit people,
and also kills three more with guns.So, instead of looking at the
very serious (and likely uncurable) mental health problems, or demanding knife
control, or keeping crazy people from driving 2,500 pound guided weapons,
everyone leaps on "more gun control" as a solution.Short of
a total gun ban, their ultimate goal, what "common sense measures" do
these people think might have stopped this? Background checks, gun rationing
(one a month), high capacity magazine bans, waiting periods? California already
has all that stuff.What they do not have, is locking up crazy
people. Even after 15 years of therapy and three visits from cops.Best we can do is at least allow potential victims to defend themselves.
@Robert RiversongIdeology: inherent right to own a gun.Non-ideology: our children are murdering each other with guns and their sale
and ownership should thus be more regulated.

This type of shooting is occurring so often, it's giving us as a people the
chance to reflect on a regular basis. Unfortunately we just reflect on how
poorly we are able to address our collective problems. Instead of make common
sense solutions, I suggest we pray about our problems and see what happens.
