This has been a terrible week. How are there so many sick fucks in this world? Feeling helpless to protect anyone from anything.

The argument about cars and drunk driving is not totally correct. I could argue that certain types of weapons should not be in the hands of the public such as semi auto assault rifles. Just like cars that can exceed a certain speed are, I believe, not allowed in the US. Simply because of the likelihood of misuse.

I'm just saying that this is one of those debates that can get out of hand very quickly (from those on both sides of the issue) and even though this is the off topic forum, general decorum is still required.

Because crazy always finds a way. It's simply the most convenient tool for them even tho more effective means of mass-murder exist that can be made at home from completely legal items.

CNN reported that the shooter was 20 years old. He did not grow old enough to solve his personal problems, and came to a conclusion that the society around him was at fault. Were there no places he could get help ? I don't think so. But his immediate family and friends were supposed to realize that something was wrong with him.
Can we blame society for all the wrongs which are happening ? Probably Yes, probably no. Look at what happened in New Orleans after Katrina struck. That day taught me that every society, no matter how advanced and structured, can self-destruct in a matter of hours. Look at Gujarat, India where thousands were killed in the name of Religion. What did the Government do ? It just watched an entire state burn.
We humans can take the hardest emotional hits, but it is upto each of us as individuals, to seek help when we need it. This is where the importance of a Support system within the family takes primary importance.
Such incidents are heart rending and will always remain etched in human memory. My heartfelt prayers for all the people who have lost their loved ones in this incident.
