It is so senseless.

Why can't these losers that shoot innocent people use that first bullet on themselves and save us all the grief.

This is the result of generations of failures of parenting. Raising children who become thugs and garbage. Society's failure to stop bullies.

People: "It's okay, it was just 5. We'd be alarmed if it were more than 10-15."

And add to it a media-obsessed culture created and dominated by the well-insulated Hollywood Mentality. And an opposing culture dominated by the Religious Right -- both peddling a strong component of mysticism. Then fold in the puzzle of "corporate" conformity and offer only the influence of Big Brother/Sister as an "antidote" -- but only if one qualifies for "protected minority" status. The responsible individual, particularly if male, finds the deck stacked against him at every turn. Is it any wonder that a small minority fall apart completely?

A lot of countries have bad parenting still. You're nothing special.

Try again.

It's illegal to murder people in the US. Should we make it double illegal? Maybe a law making it illegal to disobey the law?

Wow!!! Nope! no siree it sure ain't. Perhaps a little learning on your part will reveal that to you. Ignorance of facts is one thing. Learning the truth is another.
