Murder is already against the law, yet people do it...so why do people feel passing gun laws will keep people from killing others using guns? There are already strict laws buying guns, if you can't buy one in a store its easy to get one on the street, even easier to steal one. Take time to pass a high capacity clip law where you can't buy one in store...fine, it takes 5 minutes and make one. NEWS FLASH...Laws will never keep people from being criminals.

I sometimes wonder when an event occurs & remains the #1 topic on EVERY news source such as w/ Columbine, Aurora, & New Town ect..., if it might be the unintentional glamorization that fuels these troubled, ARMED, youth to begin with in the first place .

Bad attention, is STILL attention . I imagine potential mental cases that are capable of initiating this degree of actual hell,  are somewhat inspired by the endless media coverages from every angle imaginable . The extremely sad story about the puppy not being able to spend it's 1st x-mas w/ the now dead little boy from New Town, is a bit too much . 

I am nowhere near a solution . Just a sad witness to this growing monster !
