I wasn't trying to be disgusting. I personally would have second thoughts about moving to a place where a tragedy like this occurred.

It's quite apparent that you have little interest in earning the respect of much of anyone. Within your first thirty posts on City-Data, you have damned both Baltimore and Takoma Park as being the equivalents of third-world countries, slammed Montgomery County specifically and the DC area generally as being cesspools of racism and racial strife, and despite being married yourself, counseled others not to move to this area because the dating scene for 40+ woman couldn't possibly be worse here. It is you who is the trash-talking troll, my dear, and there is little respect anywhere for trolls.

This is your explanation? That the posters who have lived and worked here for decades and somehow not seen evidence to justify the uniformly negative characterizations of everything and everyone around that you have put forward here have been "lucky", while you apparently have been "unlucky" enough to become the only one able to see the real truth??? You know, somehow, I'm not quite buying that theory...

Rather than jumping downt the throat of strangers or making poor leaps of logic to talk about "blaming" hunters, etc. I would like to discuss the societal roots of school shootings.

There are civilized folks here who want to discuss this tragedy in a way that results in civilized and educational dialogue.

Well, probably PM'ing me three times in ninety minutes wasn't the way to go about it.
I repeat: Clean up your act, and you'll have no problems from me...
