    yes, of course. Tougher gun laws is merely the easiest way to reduce such things.
    But it's by no means the only thing.
    I'm here at the free walk in mental health clinic today and am basically working for free. The clinics budget has been slashed every year and it barely stays a float. I can afford to work here under such a low stipend, but many of my colleagues can't. It's kind of a mess. Most of our clientele are homeless people, drug addicts, the chronically mentally ill and foster children... some of the most vulnerable and in-need folks out there; and they're being provided care by unpaid, undertrained interns. How's that make sense?

    Oh, the comments section for any Yahoo News article is like a barnyard for the most braying mouthbreathers. It would be high comedy if it were not a slice of real-life "Idiocracy".

    Comment sections are the worst. It's amazing the lengths people will go just to let others know they don't have a brain. You would think tragedy would help unite people

    Honestly? Fuck that second amendment. It has no place in a modern society. None at all.

    I'm horrified and so upset for those families. And right-wing commentators have already called for arming teachers according to this news broadcast? No words.

    The worst thing about this IMO is that American gun laws aren't going to change. Not as a result of this, not ever.

    I never understood how the second amendment allowed everyone to go all "weapons free" in the first place. Isn't it the right to bear arms in a militia?

I don't hate guns, but there do need to be stricter laws. There at least needs to be some discussion about it at the political level instead of everyone just brushing it aside. I'm tired of people saying "This is not the time to talk about these things". When is the time going to be right?
    Well said. I didn't even hear much about the mall shooting earlier this week, except from twitter. It's like it happens so often now, we as a society are getting numb to it. Sickening.

    But now it has involved children.

    Agreed, people feel so entitled to their freedoms that they blindly defend them without ever considering the cost.

    I looked at the thread on the community forum. Mistake.

    So angry now.

    When is the time to talk about gun control?

    Because I'm sure they'll shove it under the rug again. And again. And again.
