A further note on yesterday's events.

Let's not forget that we are currently at war with an enemy whose sole tactic is the sensational and public mass murder of innocents.

To think that they are not taking notes on our response to Monday's events is willful ignorance at best, if not criminally naive.

Just like the war, it's also a free lab for our main enemy, the Chinese.

My thought on all this is, doesn't just ONE media outlet have the decency and courage to not give the killer fame? These people do these slaughters because they know everyone will finally see and hear them. We'll read their rants, torment their parents and friends,know their names and faces.

The next mass killer is watching, too.

Well-said. But willful ignorance is the way most people know how to function, and until it's beat into their heads by the media that they're supposed to feel a certain way, they won't feel it. Which is terribly sad.

If Cho Seung-Hui had not been unreasonably fearful, had used common sense and not had a gun, a beautiful young man would still be alive. There are too many Cho Seung-Hui out there too many little people of limited social skills, limited practical intelligence and limited conscience who not only fail to think before they act but refuse to take responsibility for their actions.
Our Constitution does not give us rights without responsibility, so where is the personal responsibility in this?

We have the NRA to thank not only for the deletion of personal responsibility from the equation, but for all the people who will die as the result.

Guns are not fun, they are not macho. " No, toys are fun, and guns are not toys. Some people don't enjoy shooting sports.No one needs an AK-47 to hunt deer.I sooo was glad when my gun-toting next-door-neighbor moved and took his arsenel [sic] with him for I always dreaded an accident. I fear guns. I don't see why you would be against licensing and basic government control of guns until you are either (a) a criminal or murderer or Robert Blake or (b) an anti-government nut in the lineage of McVeigh.
Especially now, in the age of terrorism imported and domestic and violent crime, it all the more important for us to gain any control we can over guns and to try to keep them out of the hands of all the dangerous nuts on our streets.Guns are so complex that special training is necessary to use them properly, and so simple to use that they make murder easy.
Guns cause violence, which is why there are so many mass killings.
