It is but it's a choice. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 335 days ago -

Yes we are a great nation. We've never stopped being great. It's only @%$ holes like you that politicize a tragedy that make us look less than great.

lol..and its @%$ holes like you
That ignore the fact it takes policy (laws) to stop or at least curb these tragedies. bob 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 335 days ago -

Really? I believe murder is already against the law and has been for over 200 years. The fact that it's illegal didnt stop either shooting. 

witchywoman --- 335 days ago -

As I was saying ....we are not doing anything towards gun control .
What is it going to take ??

These back to back shootings in an election season will probably be the tipping point for some gun law reform, most likely in the form of enhanced/universal background checks, with particular attention on mental health history (or even social media history).

There might be some movement to address the elusive "gunshow loophole" fallacy as well.

Additionally, I have no problem denying someone convicted of domestic violence access to a weapon.

There is room for movement on this issue without infringing on legal gun owner's rights.

Those lines get blurry quick when people start talking about banning certain types of weapons and/or ammunition. It's a slippery slope from a semi-automatic rifle to a semi-automatic handgun.

I grieve with all the families in El Paso and Dayton who endured these latest mass shootings. Even if details are still emerging, there are a few things we already know to be true.

First, no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do. Every time this happens, we’re told that tougher gun laws won’t stop all murders; that they won’t stop every deranged individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public places. But the evidence shows that they can stop some killings. They can save some families from heartbreak. We are not helpless here. And until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening.

Second, while the motivations behind these shootings may not yet be fully known, there are indications that the El Paso shooting follows a dangerous trend: troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy. Like the followers of ISIS and other foreign terrorist organizations, these individuals may act alone, but they’ve been radicalized by white nationalist websites that proliferate on the internet. That means that both law enforcement agencies and internet platforms need to come up with better strategies to reduce the influence of these hate groups.

But just as important, all of us have to send a clarion call and behave with the values of tolerance and diversity that should be the hallmark of our democracy. We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people. Such language isn’t new – it’s been at the root of most human tragedy throughout history, here in America and around the world. It is at the root of slavery and Jim Crow, the Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in the Balkans. It has no place in our politics and our public life. And it’s time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much – clearly and unequivocally.

Such as?

A conviction already bars someone from gun ownership. What more do you want to do? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 334 days ago -

White supremacists, like their Islamist counterparts,

How about the black panthers? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 334 days ago -

Now "white supremacist" refers to all these young male mass murderers? Which ONES actually were white supremacist?

Facts only please.

Me thinks lots of this is nothing more than bait to get the easily manipulated into frenzy mode.
Instead, we should be worried about the hearts and minds of our youth in this country. 

DVaz --- 334 days ago -

The Ohio shooter was a full blown socialist who supported Elizabeth Warren. 

DVaz --- 334 days ago -

White supremacists, like their Islamist counterparts, explicitly seek to use violence to create a climate of fear and chaos that can then be exploited to reshape society in their own image. 

%6 of the population (black males) commit more than half the murders in this country. Where's your outrage about that?

That's a fact. Something detrimental to families has occurred in the last 40 years. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 333 days ago -

Youth have become desensitized to violence and there is definitely a departure from appreciating the sanctity of life in modern culture. The traditional family unit is maligned and ebbing in society. Like church or not, the overriding message in churches is love they neighbor (well, most churches), but church attendance and faith in general are in serious decline.

Millions of kids are drugged with psychotropics now for often misdiagnosed mental health issues (ADD, ADHD etc). Endless exposure to violent video games desensitizes kids to and even normalizes violence and murder. Bullying by way of social media is rampant and victimizes the most vulnerable and often impressionable kids. White males are taught in liberal institutions that they are the cause of all the troubles, past and present, in the world.

There's not one, simple reason this happens, but it's more of a combination of factors that drive kids to this state of mind.

There's always been guns in society. Why did kids and young adults decide that gunning down perfect strangers is acceptable in the last few decades? It's not a gun issue; it's a mental health and societal issue.

Notice that when you ask liberals what more gun control measures should become law the only answers you get are laws already in effect or nothing but ad hominem attacks.

Pathetic, isn't it? These lemmings just believe everything the fake news/propaganda media tells them and they just regurgitate the same drivel. Simpletons...
