      Oh, No- not again.

      How is our Mental Health System failing all of these people?

      WTF is going on in our Country with all these shootings?

      Honestly, what the hell is really wrong with our Country, America?

      At least Brian Ross of ABC News has not linked the gunman to the Tea Party, yet.

      NG, it’s not the mental health system failing. It’s the fact we’ve lost our core values. All, too many anyway. I realize this is only my opinion, but I don’t believe any pill or councilor can fix a spiritual problem such as hatred or the likes. Yes…there are some good psychologist and psychiatrist out there, but not a whole lot. If they are not allowed to use any form or religious or Christian ethics to helpl their patients I’m not sure what would work.

      God help this nation…and the world for that matter.

      When there are those in the population that do not have a GOD concept and its attendant value system, then we should not be suprised at what we get. The value systems of our founding fathers have slipped away from main stream conciousness of our people.

      The Sikhs are a religion that originated in India. Their dress is similar to that of the muslims. Their value systems are much more humane than those of the muslims.

      Unless the police are able to find evidence regarding the reason for the attack, we may never know as he is dead from the shootout.

      Another sick SOB targets a location where he knew there would be no guns.

      There used to be a law on the books when i grew up in New England that stated that you must bring your gun and seven rounds of ammunition to Church on Sundays. The law was on the books from the days of the original settlers when they Native Americans used to pick them off on their way to Church because they realized they had no guns with them on that day.

      #3-MOI- I completely agree with you. I have been saying the same thing to anyone who will listen for at least the past 10 years.

      I call it the dumbing down of America. I realize there will always be crimes of this nature everywhere on our planet, I just worry lately that the Mass shooting seem to occur more frequently since Columbine and Virgina Tech shootings.

      I am afraid for the future of my Children and what type of America they will some day be raising their own children in.
