    If you feel that way, then don't respond. It will get you into trouble.

    Pretty spot on Slam. Thanks for that...I forgot how global a society we live in now with American entertainment all over the globe now.

    i'm just going to blame that piece of sh** wuss that just shot up a school full of innocents. and i'm sure he had some relatable sob story about why mommy and daddy had to pay. but i no longer care. he crossed the line. it's so easy to refrain from killing another person. most people have to be threatened with death to even consider it. i just have no sympathy for someone who plans something like this. he should have put that gun in his own mouth. it's probably just as selfish (think of the cleanup). but at least he's not depriving others of life.

    So yeah, I totally blame the POS that did this.

    However, we gotta stop giving POS' the potential to do stuff like this. And you know what that means.


    It means dealing with the real elephant in the room. The second amendment and how people use and abuse it. It's an archaic amendment that needs to be (further) modernized.

    I agree. We also aren't the most heavily armed country in the world, either; that would be Switzerland. So what is it about the USA that makes this kind of shit happen here more often than elsewhere?

    I think it's because we bestow on the perps the posthumous laurel of Celebrity, and that's too big a deal here. They apparently inspire boundless curiosity, and are woven into our cultural fabric. I am apparently full of shit for suggesting this, though, so I am open to other suggestions.

    Superhero comic books only become art to the extent that their banal, unrealistic fantasy and garish styles go too far and become interesting. Attempts to ground them in reality can only ruin them.

    that's because the NRA has been extremely vocal about Obama coming for their guns; despite his inaction.

    As Slam posted this happens more overseas and if we lived there...we likely would be saying the same exact thing. Its because we live here , its blaring on all news channels and cable news channels. But its not just a USA problem.
