        Countries like Japan and South Korea are individually ethnically similar. America is no longer ethnically the way it used to be.

              If it's never crossed your mind to pick up a gun to kill an actual person, then among other things, don't become a cop or join the military.

              Sorry, but I just can't deal with extremely compartmentalized, mentally challenged schizophrenics i.e. the average person. Dumb fuckers can barely think and generally rely on others to do it for them.

                As people go to church less and are not involved in religion they distance themselves from the community, along with kids who are being raised in single parent households with NO male parent and influence as you are 20 times more likely to then go to prison (President Obama reported this), the Grievance issue where everyone is a "Victim" as a part of some disenfranchised group, and the main reason is the decline of Mental Health assistance as easily seen by the tremendous increase in homelessness most of which are either addicted to drugs or mentally ill or both. So these are the main reasons and NOT GUNS that have been around since the ArmaLite Rifle model 15 first Introduced in 1954 shows that guns existence is not the problem but the Person behind it and how they act and feel. Just as the incredible increase in inner-city shootings and killings have all happened with the creation of Gangs and the Drug trade where the criminals arm themselves in order to protect against other rival gangs. Just look at Chicago where a Mass Shooting occurs EVERY SINGLE Weekend just as it does in other Large Metropolitan cities on an almost Daily basis and yet because Most of this is Black on Black Criminal Drug Crimes the Mass Fake Media IGNORES it and doesn't report it as people have become so dulled by it happening Every day and they think because they are not involved in the drug trade it can't happen to them. But Most of these are also done by Handguns so Again it doesn't fit the Narrative the Media wants to show. Then it doesn't show how business people who have to work or live in those nearby communities want to protect themselves from any random violence or robberies the Legal citizens arm themselves. Such as my home town of South Bend IN where Mayor Pete has not addressed the Violent Crime increase in a city that is 26% Black and Crime is thru the roof and shootings and killings happen daily. But because like Trevor he is a Leftist he ignores the real Root causes and blames it on an inanimate Object such a Gun. But because nobody is running around South Bend with an AR or an AK it gets ignored or passed over and glossed over and the problem increases as the reason rather then the symptom is looked at. So the University of Notre dame came out with a report right before Pete announced his candidacy for President saying we in South Bend Now have 59 Criminal Street Gangs and Mapped out there locations according to data from arrests. There were NOT this many gangs 10, 20 or even 30 years ago as this is a NEW phenomenon and Instead of Increasing the "Gang Unit"" of the Police Pete shrank it to 1 yes ONE member or the entire Police Force. It also is at the Heart of his Police scandal of recorded tapes in the firing of the First African-American Police Chief we had but he Demoted basically firing him and making him ineffective as some believed he was too close to a gang in particular. So Nobody goes after the Elephant in the room and blames other Bullshit while even the most stupid of normal people can Clearly see where the problem lies. When crossing the street, moving into the wrong neighborhood or even driving thru or being in an area Not controlled by the Gang you are affiliated with can get you shot or Killed to simply ignore it or blame it on Guns is STUPID.. Even the Welfare mom, or homeless guy know better in having some street smarts and have heard from word of mouth what isn't safe to do or go into that area Especially after dark and late at night when the street are Run by the criminals and drug dealing Gangs.. And the Media people who are so insulated away from REALITY and being in those areas has gotten BAD information and Needs to Listen to people who live there, people who work there like contractors like me who service them. Pop you Bubble Trevor and Go Out into the streets if you dare and see the REAL DEAL because reports like this show how far off you are. P.S. My next door neighbors had the scary AR gun when I was 12 years old some 45 Years ago and there were barely any Mass shootings as I believe there were 6 in the Entire decade of the 1960's as we preferred to settle things with fists or worse case a knife as it was Unheard of to use a gun, even in the commission of a crime. Unless of course it was a major crime like Bank Robbery or Armored car heist. But back in those days the Divorce rate was Not 50% and almost all kids had a Dad at home and most wen to church on Sunday and Mental health had counselors and State run homes which are all gone now. So why didn't my peaceful hillbilly gun toting neighbors go off the reservation and kill everybody; because it wasn't done then and the media didn't glorify the killers like they do today where they dissect their lives on public TV and then claim they didn't make them more popular then Charles Manson or Jack Ruby who most couldn't even remember today compared to Stephen Paddock (Las Vegas) or Adam Lanza (Sandy Hook).

                                It's not videogames on it's own, I've played videogames, I'm still the same person, having trouble to speak up for myself and hyperfocussed on crafting costumes _from_ those videogames.
                                However, if you're already busy with weaponry and at a young age, violence and weaponry and violent videogames are being shown and normalized to you, (especially people carelessly speaking of other human beings to their children, as if teaching that every idiot deserves a shot in the neck) it won't help either.
                                There's no problem with being a little more strict on the videogames, as long as you simultaniously *offer help to the families that are in trouble with their children anyhow.*
                                It doesn't work to restrict the games and let the fighting families and the depressed teenagers continue to struggle. There are multiple causes and multiple solutions and why not all of them?

                                  Marriage is way down, birth rates are way down, race, gender, and class tensions are way up, political tensions are way up, nihilism is way up, the mental health field is floundering drug use is way up, doctors are hesitant to prescribe anything other than tylenol to anyone who actually needs anything...

                                  Basically, our young people have little to no prospects for a meaningful and fulfilling future, a present filled with self centered self indulgence, and their only source of happiness left is blind consumerism and drug use.

                                  Is it really such a wonder why some people are going full Joker with it and trying to end it all by burning whatever parts of this world are within their reach?

                                                Guns dont kill people! People kill people regardless if they have a gun or not.

                                                Why is it that no one talks about the fact that most likely the shooters had piece of shit parents that didn’t teach them to care about people. Why do they just want to blame it on all violent video games, movies and guns like that is the only factor? It’s just like If you teach a pitbull to be a piece of shit and fight other dogs then that’s what it is but if you train it well to be a good dog then that is what you will get. I know there’s always exceptions but 9 times out of 10 I think this is how it works. Please tell me if you disagree.

How interesting, cause literally all my friends that joined my Minecraft server yesterday are black, middle eastern, and Asian... guess since I’m white and I play video games means I’m going to kill someone. Can someone get MattPatt to talk about this instead? We all know he’s the only one that can talk about it reasonably

So where mass shootings happen where people are unarmed. What's changed is kids don't get there ass's beat remember cowboys and indians. When we adults were young. Violent. But it's called poor parenting. Tech kids respect. Kids don't get a asswhip'n. Parents are worthless. Because there kids don't get discipline. And no one can discipline them. Because it's abuse. Makes no sense off subject but listen if a animal is sick and suffering. Put them to sleep it in humane to let them suffer if a person is sick and dieing make them suffer as long as possible. The human race is stupid that's the problem

First of all before Texas became a state it was a country and before it was a country it was territory from Mexico. More like the people who were from the US back then invaded mexican territory which are:Texas, New Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Oklahoma, Kansas and Wyoming
