    We rarely agree on much of anything jared, but I couldn't agree with you more on this...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    No doubt. I'm certainly not throwing in the towel or anything like that. But it's difficult to be optimistic about our species when you have things like this, the Israel/Palestine cluster, people making millions by purposely manufacturing hate and conflict, as well as a dozen other things I could mention. It seems like it's impossible for people to care about each other anymore. All people care about is imposing their views on others, getting their way, and making sure they have everything and no one else has anything...

    EDIT: Apparently the profanity filter puts smily faces in place of curse words now...

    And who said anything about 100 round assault rifles? The only report of a weapon i have seen said that one of the guns was a .223, but didn't specify if it was a singgle shot or semi-automatic.
    Let's calm down and get all the facts before we try and take everyones multi shot weapons away.

    Oh yeah, and say a prayer for all the kids and their families....especially the one of the 20 yr old guy that did this
    Actually, "now" is too late. It's time to make it harder for crazy s to get their hands on guns. What's disrespectful to the loved ones is that we don't address it and instead allow their kids to continue to be shot and killed.

    i have to say i have lost alot of faith in humanity. my wife and i went to see a movie a few weeks ago and i was looking around at the exits. for the first time in my life i have thought about where i will send my kids to school when they get of age. i am seriously debating home schooling. maybe i am just getting old, but i never used to think this way before.

    dont get me wrong, i dont wake up paranoid or anything, i just think the world in general is decaying.
