Is "hate" the reason for the murder rates in Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis, Ponderosa?

Seems we argue about every facet of this issue BUT wtf is causing young men in this country to lose their stuff like this? Is it biological? Is it environmental? Is it societal? How do we identify and stop it?
First - it's a society that throws every kid on some sort of medication for simply being a kid. I've known more kids diagnosed with ADHD that never had it and were worse because of their medication. We still don't have concrete results on what all this medication does to their psych.

You have parents who are more interested in their careers and socializing and teachers that are nothing more than babysitters today. Many of these kids grow up on their own with few people to actually guide them - doesn't matter if they are rich or poor.

The we have kids given everything they want as the parents try to keep up with the Joneses or try to feel less guilty about not giving time to the kids. The kids expect everyone to bow down to them.

Instead of having institutions where these people are sent to get help - we leave it up to them to visit their doctors and take their own medication - so we society are protected from them.

Hmm if you look up his voter registration it doesn't say Democrat, nor does it say Republican or anything else other than active because well there is no party registration....

As a side note, one look at that mylife site about myself & some members of my family & some of it is laughingly incorrect...

You look at political message boards these days and it is not hard to figure out where they come from.

Texas has open carry, however:

Only 2% of Texans have a carry license.

According to surveys, only half of those ever carry at all.

So both sides may as well admit...it largely does not make a significant social difference. It might make a difference to an individual on the spot, but it makes no statistical difference.

well of course with Mueller time being over, now the libs setup another shooting so they can go back to the gun control campaign. This is too easy to predict these days.

Every kid? Do you need a hand lifting that broad brush?

Most mass shooters were not medicated.

Most people who are medicated do not engage in a mass shooting.

He looks like a loser. Maybe he is one of those dudes who can't get any sex from women. Forget what they call themselves.
