Students groan*
Student: Another one? There was one last month.
Teacher: Listen Jimmy, this doesn't happen because I want it. Let's just get this over with.

Last sentece is true, I've been thinking about go downtown and kill lots of fucking hipster people, what stops me? I don't have a gun and if I go out with a knife i would probably kill one or two people, fuck that, I'm not going to kill myself just for 2 people, I need more than 50 and for that I need an AR

Because its the law who give the rights to have a gun... If they ban it... Maybe the mass shooter never happen or at least reduce

Here we go, blame video games, because that worked well the first time the media tried to label gamers as the devil. Video games don't create mass shooters. The problem is culture and mental health. People are the problem.

Not even controlling gun laws and pointing fingers at video games. Thats like if the purge was real and you blamed it on people who talk about the purge.

Rubbish statement. I play lots of violent video games and I have no desire to own a gun. Since mental health care is too expensive the US should control who gets a gun. In the process of screening the mental ill applicants will be detected.

Wow when I read the title I already knew the answer: guns! I wasn't surprised when he confirmed it in the end of the video... Just take Japan as an example: not even cops have guns, so it's impossible to kill or be killed by them. Simple like that!

You cannot possible say that one reason is enough to make you a mass murderer. it's the same reason as many have for taking heavy drugs or joining a criminal gang or taking your own life. But the real reason why the shootings are increasing is because something as simple as peer pressure. if you see someone else do it, it will be more ok than before

Well, in a society like this, Where class and appearance is everything i think it's odd we don't have more people like them. Much of the worlds population is in pain and the best middle class people can do is tweet and post stupid shit about it. When every horrible act possible is encouraged and praised as long as it's against a white man or any kind of ugly outcast, it's completely ok. It'd be socially accepted to throw some of these people in the trash, take their money, piss on them and post it on FB with many likes and jokes made about the person. People act like they're not selfish but this is an ERA of the most egoistic and self-centered people with HPD there can be.



Since there are so many people in US that has perfect lives and some that we intentionally push aside to focus on the more obvious victims that aren't really victims at all. We get people that do mass shootings because their lives don't matter to the world, hence the person also knows his life doesn't matter. kill yourself or go out with a boom. Whatever works because they don't know any better since we gave them that life knowing they'd never be nothing more then angry and sad all the time never even knowing what happiness means. Nowdays almost everyone who had a good life with minor problems become true monsters inside.



While these people watch the world and everyone around them be happy. I'd be really surprised that they would keep the charade going for no other reason then the biggest myth of all. IT'S GONNA GET BETTER. When really, it will never get better for these people since we got to many self-rightous social media whores only caring about how everything looks from their point of view! That don't mean i justify his actions but saying it's obvious that he did what he did, taking that he is a human like the rest of us.



We have to help these tortured souls before this happens, now the only logical thing is to just put him down. TBH i'd rather not give a fuck about 17 brats that died when the planet is obviously overpopulated with brats. There are more people that need griefing than these top class brats.



This scenario could be applied to 20dogs that live in the same house with the same trainer. The trainer treating 19 of them like princesses and the 1 outcast dog get treated very aggressively, like shit meanwhile forcing the outcast dog to act like the other 19. Giving the 19 better and more food while the outcast dog gets no food, but only once a week. The outcast dog will succumb to extreme depression, it will start to grow hate/grudge on the other 19 and eventually go on a rage against them. 1 painful day for some can feel like a lifetime for others.

Well Japan has one of the tightest gun laws in the world, maybe that is a point? But they have a lot of suicides. So the gun is only a tool not the root of the problem.

People may not seem mentally ill, but in fact most modern people are mentally ill (and don't even recognize it). Because consumerism, stupidity, shallowness, superficiality, religion - with the media feeding us all this daily - make us numb. Empathy is an option, Egoism is the way to go in capitalism. That's basically where it all starts, imo. Also, a country with such an intense gun culture, blaming the violence on virtual guns is just absurd. My heart would probably go pumping as fukk, if I were about to fire a real gun. It's not normal for the average person. This is what desensitizes you. They are so easily available and you still wonder? Sure, there are also clinical psychopaths - but I think nowhere else is it as easy to go on a killing streak... sorry 4u folks, shoot me if I'm wrong.

U cant blame social media because these types of things r psychological. Social media is only an optional bridge that people take when they're lookin for answers. News is also an element so u could as well shut teens from everything but the negativity is still there, and when there is a flame there is an inferno being birthed
