Colorado’s newest tragedy

Colorado is on the news tonight for another mass shooting.  This time it was in a theater.  You’ve heard the story.  This psychopath walks into the theater and begins shooting and killing innocent people.  I’m not going to try to figure out why he decided to kill or what made him snap.  I really don’t care.  What I do care about are the people hurt by this POS.  I also care about how James Holmes’ family is handling this.  You know this can’t be easy on them either.

What I want to talk about is what is going on in our society that makes people do this kind of thing and what the consequences are in this.  You can’t blame guns, so don’t go there.  I’ve already heard the liberals going on about more gun control.  We’re not going to debate that here tonight.

What is going on in our society that this kind of thing happens?  We know mass shootings aren’t new, but this is the largest in US history and it comes right on the tail of face-eating nut jobs and other crazy criminals that have made the news lately.  Are we just becoming so used to violence and such that perpetrators feel they have to step it up a notch for the shock value?  Or for fame?

What about Holmes’ family?  How are they handling this?  They must be devastated to learn their child has grown into a violent killer.  How would you deal with this type of thing if your son or daughter did something like this?  I have no idea how I’d deal with that.  I hope to God I never have to find out.

I’m looking for input here, people.  What are your thoughts?  Keep the victims, their families, and the shooter’s family in your thoughts and prayers.

  1. Ever consider the extremes of oppression. As our government becomes more complicated and consisting of more regulations, it places pressure on each and every one who comes in contact with it. This adds to the complex of problems an iindividual has. I am not surprised as invasive and restrictive our government is becoming. Probablu the people affected by this do not evern realize what they are angry about. I am surprised there is not more incidents like this happening and even groups of people rebelling using methods of this type. I am surprised there is not more incidents of this type, and expect to see group actions of this type in the next few years. I am not talking about from outside our country but from within. Study your history you will find all the great empires, which were not defeated by foreign aggressors, were brought down from inside in this manner.

    • I do study history and, as I’m sure you’ve heard, those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if our country winds up in a violent uprising in the next few years. Federal intrusions and the rapid erosion of our liberties, it’s only a matter of time before something big happens. Read some more of my posting and you may very well see what I’m talking about. Homeland Security personnel telling the Canadian Free Press the Obama administration is planning a staged assassination attempt to declare martial law and suspend the November elections. DHS buying 2700 MRAPs and 4.5 million rounds of .40 S&W hollows. The militarization of our police forces and the use of domestic drones against our own citizens. Lots to look at.
