There might be some other ways of looking at the horrific massacre in Conn.
People can kill with knives, guns, bombs, gas to name just a few. But what might be lacking is morality, self-control & responsibility.
We were given a set of Commandments (not suggestions) & there is a "Thou Shalt Not Kill" Commandment. Is it possible that in our busy lives & the need to purchase our happiness, we have missed the knowledge of the Ten Commandments & how to find happiness. There is a Prince of Peace & He gives us the road to happiness.
Also, I think we have become so PC that the kind of people who would have some mental problems are not in a facility that can handle their disorders. When I was in nurses' training, I got punched in the face when a resident asked if I liked tomatoes. I answered I didn't care for tomatoes & he inferred that to mean I didn't like him. He was quickly "handled" & I abruptly ended my psych interest. The point of the story is that we no longer care for them in an institution. They are walking among us. And don't bring up "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"! I saw the "real thing" & lived "the real thing" & all was not good, but there can be a happy medium in caring for people with mental disorders walking among us or living in a controlled environment. We should be able to say "Your behavior does not allow you to live in society, at this time".
Just some thoughts other than banning guns. We ought to think of banning & admonishing bad behavior.

I have no
way to make any sense of this week. I only have questions. I wonder why the US has more handguns and deaths by handguns than any other place on earth.
As dkg well states, no person just "snaps". A personal history is built but not reported.
I don't know how a young man walks through a crowded street/mall/hospital/church
carrying rifles and handguns without someone seeing him.
I have no conclusions. Only questions.
