It's a vicious circle of fear and suspicion. I also think the very popular mythology of the struggle between good and evil is messing up young minds.
what reality of evil? I was just pointing out how over-simplification leads to demented behaviours.
Me not stupid, sir. You believe in demons, I don't. :)
Everyone would be safer if they had pirated the movie at home. Hey, are there any politicians fighting internet censorship with this theory?
No. I would only feel safe if I knew there were no guns present at all. If nobody carries a gun, there can never be a shooting.
You're shittin' us, right?
I have talked to a man who was a Montana cowboy in the 19th century, when everyone carried a gun.<br />
He remarked how different his society was from that of the 1960s. He said that in his youth everyone was polite, and gave gave respect to other people. <br />
We are worse than we were in the 1960s. It is time that we tried to polite and respectful to all other people. And we should insist that our politicans do the same, instead of being the bunch of thieves and liars that they are.
it's different these days, but when i was a kid there was no problem with having a gun at at our grade school -- there were woods nearby where squirrels could be gotten for the family supper before starting the walk home. guns were omnipresent -- never heard of anyone shooting anybody -- they were just a tool, like tractors and cars, which did, of course, kill people, even back then. we did have white lightnin' but we didn't use drugs such as are around now. i read that school shooters were all on some sort of mood altering drugs. i wonder if that's so. if it actually is, we need to shine a spotlight on the subject of these presc<x>ription drugs, also.
am wondering if the cause and the mask are the same -- could that be?
but -- looking at all the stressors faced today --
No, but I'd live safer if not everyone in America was allowed to raise children. I'd also feel a lot more safe if we were more concerned with discouraging criminal activity than we seem to be in supressing homosexuality.
we have laws on the books right now<br />
we have to start to to make others pay for whatthey have done and not reward them<br />
jail need to go back to just that a place where hell lives <br />
if youuse a weapon in a crime you die very simple<br />
if you rape a child you die<br />
if you choose to use drugs and drive or drink and dive the second time you go to an island and live out your life<br />
we have to stop playing games the cost is way to high for all
sadly , that's the way your country is heading.....
I'd feel safer if it were legal to own a nuclear tipped cruise missile and point it at the white house. All the rest are minor details like using a safety belt.
Again....taking away yet another piece of our freedom would not have prevented the shooting. More people die in car accidents everyday. This guy had been planning this for weeks and had explosives at his apt. Why people think a store is the only place someone can purchase a gun is beyond me. This is not the first guy to go postal and I can guarantee within a yr someone else will do the same. There is no law to prevent craziness. And if by some small chance that guy couldn't buy a gun then he would have chose another method for his rampage...like explosives
I think this question is kinda mean.
