I haven't read all the posts yet, so someone may have written this, but I'll type it out all the same: it seems as though these mass shootings have all taken place since religion and its moral teachings have been taken out of the schools.
That makes sense to me.
There were mass shootings before 1962.
Well, that’s not a bad point to make either.
It makes sense to me also.
Aurora (7/20)--The theater had an explicit stance as a "gun free zone" in all of its locations. Also, there is a ban against concealed weapons there as well.
Overview of gun laws in Colorado
Sikh temple shooting (8/5)--Who would expect to be shot in a house of worship, especially in the US?
NYC (8/11)--Pretty self-explanatory
And now the Brookfield Square Mall.
I can't even begin describing to you how much mush-mouthed garbage was on the news feeds for my social network pages after these incidents. I tried to explain the right to bear arms, but after all I was talking to drones. If this opinion keeps pervading society, then my generation is in very dire straits.
