    I'm not saying it is okay to going around killing people, but I don't think its a new trend.
    I do not disagree with you in part. Most often is the case that trends are dependent on more than one factor. How people behave overall in any given civilization is a function of the laws, and how well those laws are enforced. IMO, we do not need more gun control, we need the laws already on the books enforced.

    Missy May the laws already on the books cannot be enforced until something happens.
    There are people that should never have access to a gun.
    Most have never committed a crime. The potential is there however.
    These recent mass shootings did not just happen.
    Something triggered these men to act out against soceity.
    Notice how all mass shooters are men? Shalom

    Women only commit 10% of the murders in this country.
    There are over 5 million men who are incarcerated.
    Only a little over 500,000 women are imprisoned in the USA. Those are very telling statistics.
    In other words Faceman Lizzie borden was quite rare. Shalom

    Women are just too smart to get caught. All these old men that croak off aren't really dieing of old age. Have you not seen the movie "Arsenic and Old Lace"?...
