Fail reasoning here - the one who goes crazy will be taken care of immediately by good people with guns, by prohibiting firearms you're disarming people who need protection, the criminals&crazy will always have access to them

You want to know why the shooting happened. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

Yay for Canada, where guns shoot maple syrup and handwritten notes that say sorry

origingal guy shots atleast 1 before he is shot someone ses the original guy get shot thinks he is getting attacked for nothing attacks the one who shot him and so on and on.

But then EVERYBODY would have to potential to kill anyone easily, do you really trust the human race that much? I ******* don't.

True...

Our only option is obviously to kill everybody before they can kill each other.
Because logic.
