Re: 74 school shootings 


Eleven teens die everyday texting while driving.

So which society is the mad one the parents who give their teenagers cell phones and cars to kill themselves and others or the liberal parents who never take them to church, who fail to teach them thou shalt not kill so they go out to kill themselves and others?

The mad society you speak of is the one you on the lunatic left created so if you want to blame someone look in the mirror.

Re: 74 school shootings 


Violence is down across the board in the last 21 years:

http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/08/...y-gun-homicide/

It has mostly to do with aging population (though this is not postulated in the article). A great deal of violent crime is related to the drug prohibition, which promotes gangs, etc. Gun crimes are caused by a very small percentage of the guns in existence. 

It's not that we shouldn't do everything we can to prevent school shooting rampages, because one is too many. But let's get things in perspective with the big picture before we decide it's a society gone mad.

And you guys on the left are dragging conservatives kicking and screaming into the mad society that you have created. So congrats on that.

that being said.....74 school shootings in less than 2 years is not what I would call sane......why are kids all of a  sudden killing each other in their schools......a lot of it has to be copycat thing......or whatever.....but the fact remains school murder by seemingly good kids is increasing......and nothing is being done about it

Tennessee is bringing back the electric chair.

Edit:
"murder by seemingly good kids"
indy, you might want to rethink what you call seemingly good kids. Most good kids I know don't commit mass murder.

It's a question with no easy answer. 

Obviously these kids feel disenfranchised, as outsiders, as rejects. They tend to not have good parent to child relationships, they tend not to be involved in their churches. They tend to be left to their own devices, and search for some kind of personal power. When all that self hatred builds up, and hatred toward others, and the craving to make a difference and to be noticed - is coupled with no spiritual guidance, then it is a recipe whereby a certain percentage of them will break. 

Solutions are tough, because the issue is systemic and permeates the culture. But at the least these kids need to be identified and helped at an earlier age. Instead of spending money on all the nonsense that politicians do, they need to spend more money on mental health - to at least fix some of the problems, even if it's still hard to prevent. 

It's not clearly an inevitable permanent devolution into getting worse and worse however. As the population ages, as society changes in other ways, the statistics can go in another direction.

Also Indy - don't get too wowed by a single stat. It's designed for that reaction and as shown in this thread isn't even entirely accurate.

We're just going through some growing pains.  That's all.


As soon as we get rid of the last vestiges of that barbaric Judeo-Christianity that has informed Western Culture for 1,500 years, we'll be fine.

The future is going to be a wonderful place.  Everybody is going to be their own little micro-corporation, digitally printing the stuff we need for each other from beeswax.  Genetic mutations, guided by the benevolent process of evolution (I almost said "god", LOL), will make it impossible for us to feel anything but 100% empathy for each other; or to do other than love each other as ourselves; or to have anal sex with each other without using appropriate protection.

Everything that happens anywhere gets reported now-a-days.  So, it feels like it's worse or getting worse.

I bet if we reported every single incident that happened 30-50 years ago like we do now, we'd be horrified.

Edit: That said, we've got to work on the whole school shooting thing...

That's right. Violent crime is down over just the last twenty years, but the public perception is the opposite, for those reasons. Social media, and 24 hr news - report every salacious or horrifying event- and everyone says what's happening to society? I expect it to continue to go down.

The vast majority of the list by "Everytown" is Bullcrap.   Suicides.  Gang Bang shootings on school property.

Mayor Bloomberg has his little Brown Shirts in a tizzy with his BS report

Re: 74 school shootings 


so all of you guys do not agree that putting armed guards in all schools could help the situation......hell I do not know what else to do......we can talk about violence in the media should be curtailed; but is that not the same as telling we gun owners that our guns should be confiscated.......we can talk about the breakdown in the family, but the reality of that is like arguing over the weather.....I say arm the schools....guard each door in and out.....check every kid for weapons.....will it be costly to do this.....of course.....but the alternative is more dead kids....

We could stop following the progressive left's idiotic ideas and get back to what made this country great before they took over.

It all started when we took GOD out the schools and put condoms in.

It's funny to me that this "great" country was more violent "back in the day" than what it is now, yet statements like these still get made all of the time.

This is an interesting read that I feel is pretty relevant: http://www.discovery.com/tv-sh...ries-formed.htm

Re: 74 school shootings 


one gun in a school is one too many.

guns are toted into schools and other places where the collection of people are generally not armed.. ever hear of a hunting club active shooter? ever hear of a bar police hang out in being attacked? the people who do these things have deep rooted psychological issues and a grudge, and seek out places inhabited by people who can't or aren't prepared to defend themselves.. they are calculated in that regard, which betrays their attempt to appear crazy.. they aren't crazy, they are evil.. but even though they are evil, they generally all have psychotic backgrounds and evidence that they just aren't right in the head, and generally have taken some sort of prescription medication to 'treat' that issue...

why won't libs acknowledge the correlation between psychotic drugs and violence at a national level and on the congressional floor? Why won't the conservatives? Do you think it has anything to do with the prescription drug companies lobbying efforts?
