Forum Post: Another "Mall Shooting" in Oregon

Posted 1 year ago on Dec. 11, 2012, 9:35 p.m. EST by Shayneh (-482)

3 people dead including the Perp. The perp ran into the mall with a rifle with a "mask on" and when he apparently got to an open area he started firing into the crowd. Once he felt satisifed he did what he came to do, he killed himself.

Here we go again with the "gun nuts" wanting "gun control". Well gun control doesn't seem to be solving the problem.

What needs to be done is we need to give physological exams to kids once they reach the age where they can harm anyone. Then it needs to be given again in high school and at the age of 26.

That would solve this problem for sure.

It is not the gun - it is the individual who has the gun - that is the problem.

When people live under constant mounting stress - with no proper outlet.

What happens?

They snap!!!!!!!

A sick society has more crime and violence - WHY????

Constant mounting stress with no proper outlet/relief - just constant and building - STRESS.

I don't disagree but you know as well as I there will be the "Gun Control Nuts" speaking out.

It is an individuals right to share their feelings about gun control.

SO - Did you make the post to rile things UP ?

Or was there a socially conscious purpose?

[-] 2 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

No, it wasn't - it's covered on all the news media so, why not report it.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (22332) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Why report it without a personal commentary on what you thought about it?

To what purpose your posting it here?

Same thing for the Mall shooting post.

Look shiny distracting object. OOO

Well, what do you want me to say other then the fact that maybe people need to be psychologically examined from time to time. That's my feelings on it.

Psychological examinations would cost more government spending to which certain people would certainly object, especially since they see gun ownership as a fundamental right above any sensible regulations for public safety.

Well, I will be willing to be that the vast majority of "sane gun owners" would agree to it - it appeas that the problem with these shootings are related to the younger crowd - do we have a troubled youth society in this country?

[-] 1 points by LeoYo (5909) 1 year ago

Is it just the youth? Are they even the core of the problem or merely the most salient aspect for reporting in the news? How do they compare with unjustified killings by law enforcement or with older gun owners in domestic disputes?

How can the vast majority of current gun owners be declared sane if they haven't undergone the psych evaluations being proposed for the youth? And if a "vast majority of sane gun owners" could be determined, is it certain that they would constitute a group equivalent to being the vast majority of gun owners?

Well - such thought and consideration to posting an - It Bleeds It Leads Story.

The post may have had some value if you went for a discussion of why such things happen - why such incidents are on the rise - what needs to be done to address people who are exploding from stress.

But you just threw out a Blood Bath Distraction.

Really if your intention was not to distract - you could put more effort into explaining why you are making such a post.

Why is this an issue with you? There are lots of worthless posts on this site that make no sense as to why the person posted them other then to get a rise out of others.

That's not the case here - I think thise country has to take some serious thoughts on what's going on with the young people in this country and maybe giving them psychological exams during their early years may solve a lot of their problems.

I further believe that all video games that are violent should be banned by kids under the age of 18.

Does that help explain my post?

And exactly would you enforce that rule of kids under 18 being banned from violent video games?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (22332) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

It might have if you had started out on that tack to begin with.

No it really would not solve anything, testing everyone to see of they are mentally fit to drive a car or own a gun or to even live with the rest f normal society wounds a little bit like Nazi Germany to me.
