Still the people that die in car accidents is still much greater than people dying in mass shootings during a year. Let's focus on car safety instead....am I right?

A friend of mine was on Facebook today blaming video games because he loves his guns so much.

I guess this guy played Grand Theft Auto.

America is one of the richest countries in the world, obviously it is not perfect but why do such violent acts occur???

Are Americans pumped so much with fear and paranoia that the countries mental health is at risk???

Or when it starts happening to white people more. Lets face it, if you're black, latino, or even asian, you know what its like to grow up some place (in America) where shootings occur on a daily basis. Its not a problem until it starts to effect white people.

Every shooting should be hyped regardless. Shootings shouldn't be the norm. We are living in a terrible world when people are just so blase about shootings.

But does that mean we just throw our arms up in the world and stop caring or trying to fix things? Apathy is just as big a problem as violence.

It's the media's fault. If they didn't revere every loser who shot a couple dozen people as a god, these guys would just kill themselves and be done with it. But when you can go out with glory... to be the most important person in the world for a whole week... it'd almost be hard not to.

Yup....but that'll never change. America is obsessed with crime, murder. They like it...it's exciting. Look at all the dramas on TV. Most of them are crime/murder shows...CSI, etc.

This was happening during (or just before) RING the NRA's ridiculous press conference today.

Keep blaming hurricanes though, NRA.
