Why gun restrictions are not the solution

How can we prevent more violence? How can we stop bad people from going on killing sprees?

We can’t.

That’s the stark reality.

We can blame society, we can blame guns, violent video games, how parents raise children, how the media sensationalizes these massacres, or a host of other factors. But there isn’t one reason why these things happen. There isn’t one thing that we can eliminate that will make these things impossible. For as long as there are people who have the volition to act as morally autonomous beings, these tragedies will be possible. And there is nothing that can stop that.

Colorado Tragedy: Dark Knight Rises Massacre


12 deaths. For what? People have issues, and people have problems but it is so unfathomable to me that a person could be filled with so much hatred that they would take out that rage on strangers.

Because it’s not just 12 deaths. It’s 12 families who have to live with that death every day of the rest of their lives. It’s the hundreds of family members and friends of these 12 victims who were living a normal day on Thursday and now have their world’s turned upside down on Friday. It’s about the parents who lost their son or daughter, the husbands or wife who lost a spouse, and the sibling who lost a brother or sister. These people are now forced to suffer life sentences, living with the death of those they loved, and it is the fault of one man. How could someone inflict such a lifetime of pain on so many people? How in the world does a person have this type of hatred? Obviously he was very disturbed.
