    I see no hope for change while our government officials allow the NRA to dictate gun control policies.

    White middle class and upper class males are the majority of these school shooters.
    White boy…

    Suffer a break up? White boy goes postal at entire school killing 17.
    Suffer a feud after a break up? White boy goes postal.
    Suffering from racism? White boy ends up going postal at an African-American church.
    Thinks that Muslims will take over North America despite being one of the most marginalized group and the majority of government surveillance? White Quebec boy goes into a mosque to murder 6 of those men.

    White men think that their guns is a God-given right, but their biases and prejudice makes them into mass shooters.

    Sorry, the problem is not guns despite the liberal media bashing. But then again, when a party is so ineffectual that the only issue it chooses to make an issue of is gun control, then it tells you all you need to know about that party.

    The problem is not guns, the problem is American society and its culture – as in the glorifying violence in all forms. In many European countries/societies/cultures, males at the age of 13 are required to possess a gun because their countries do not have a military but a standing militia. Yet, you don’t hear of White males in these countries going on berserk shooting rampages. Garbage in. Garbage out.

    In addition, liberals go on and on and on and on …. about gun control yet liberal cities have the highest gun violence and not republican cities. Hmmm…. Typical liberal wishy washy identity – self-medicated whimpy azz bed-wetting putzs incapable of controlling their bodies,emotions or exercising genuine caring. They’re all talk but no substance – shallow, fickle, shifty, materialistic, superficial, pretentious, addle brain peacocks high on drugs and self-esteem but low on substance and intellect. I don’t identify republican but I respect them over liberals/progressives/democrats/Bernie bros and/or whatever they identify as.
    Yes, Parkland, Florida is a wealthy enclave but it is also leans democrat. Chew on that.
