This may have been mentioned on this super long thread, I don't know but simon:
t doesn't matter why they do what they do. The fact is that people having easy access to firearms, especially automatic weapons designed for fast uninterrupted shooting, is what too often changes what would otherwise be some unfortunate incident into a tragedy.
Whether they kill because of mental illness, terrorism, crime, self-promotion or whatever ... they simply couldn't kill so many, so quickly, without having the guns.
How many people were killed in the WTC/ Pentagon etc attacks? How many guns were involved in that?
Food for thought.
Also, the people that are so dangerous are the ones that make their view of reality one that justifies such mass killings. Religion, whether found in actual doctrine, or in warped minds of those who read doctrine in some justifiable lethal way, many times has a part in that.
