i love how you slipped cannabis in there and left out probably the worst of all, alcohol. sorry but you need a reality check.
its not about laws, its not really about guns - its about our society. we do not give a fuck about one another. far too many people are left by the wayside of society. i don't have the answer to all of this bullshit but we absolutely need to show compassion to one another. we need to take better care of our neighbors, we need to be more invested in each others lives and in our communities.
Sadly, this is true. Americans have this "me-first" attitude that I don't think other countries and societies share to the same level as the US. Like I said earlier, we've marginalized the mentally ill to the point that we're embarrassed by their conditions. If we took more stock in their well being, could these types of events be stopped?
