Gun control will not end the mindless violence such as the Connecticut shooting. If we examine history, any time something was taken away from society, it made the object even more desirable. Look at Prohibition in the 1920's and 30's. Making alcohol illegal made organized crime grow exponentially and people did not stop drinking. It is more important to determine the "at risk" individuals in our society who may exhibit behaviors that would give a clue that they could become psychotic.
Nobody gets a reprieve from death! The only possible bright spot to knowing when you will die is that you can try to address and accomplish goals that you have been putting off thinking that you had forever to deal with. I don't know if the Mayans were right but I am trying to do what I can to meet some of my bucket list.
Note-I am not meaning to sound heartless. The elementary school shooting was tragic and all, but is there really need to show it for nearly a whole week? I am sure that the parents of the dead children are tired of looking at this. I also am sure that there is lots more important news that we all should know about. We know that the shooting was very bad and tragic, but really, who wants to keep seeing and hearing about it? Amirite?
You kinda want to bring back the days when voting was a private issue, and nobody really discussed it and went to the polls and casted their votes and were either happy or sad the next day. Not because you're ashamed of who you're voting for but because there was so much less people bashing each other for their choices because the topic was taboo, amirite?
An American made a movie that might have insulted the prophet, so therefor I will unleash my fury and kill a man not related to this man, nor does he support his actions or has absolutely anything to do with him, even though his nation recently helped us gain democracy from a man who kept us under dictatorship for several years, amirite?
