It is 28 hours after the tragic events of yesterday and I find it amazing how I can be sad, angry, and numb all at once. I think everyone here has posted some good food for thought. My emotions about this deal still cloud my thinking with regard to the situation but I still keep coming back to the facts as some have you have already clearly laid out--This is NOT a gun control issue, it is a multiple layer issue. Its an issue about the breakdown of the family and support system for each every person who has ever committed a crime like this. It is an issue about our culture where video games glorify and desensitize kids to the true graphic nature of war, gun violence, and crimes against our fellow man. It is a shame that people make money by creating means for impressionable young people to become indifferent to life and basically celebrate all that is wrong with our culture. It's also an issue where our God, our elders, and our fellow human beings have lost the love and respect that they deserve, and in turn a loss of respect for life itself. Had these factors been nurtured and built up in each and every person who had committed a crime like this, we wouldn't be discussing this today.

My prayers go out to the families and community affected and I applaud and honor those men and women who protected those that survived. Many of you know I don't have kids, but I have a couple nephews and niece that I know I will hug a little more than I used to, I cannot imagine them being in a situation like this or losing them in this way. May God's Blessings and Love be upon them all.

I live in the rural south. In my lifetime I seen where the mentaly ill and mentally retarded lived in the remote mountains much like depicted in the movie deleverence . We then decided to build hospitals and homes for those with conditions as above . Then we decided it was to much a financial burden and closed hospitals insurance cut treatments and we put them homeless on the street or try to main stream them into society where instances outburst etc. get them made fun of and emotionally even more disturbed. I am not saying all mental issues are people who want to harm others in most causes this is not the situation however a person who has no conscience or no ability of understanding that they are harming someone or something as in Lenny's portrayal in the noval of mice and men have to have some isolation from society to ensure no ones harmed .jmho
