      We did not have mass shooting in schools until Billy Clayton removed all the fire arms from the teachers in the early 90s that will protect your children from mental illness psychopaths and. We did not have mass shooting in schools until Billy Clinton removed all the firearms from the teachers in the early 90s that would protect their children from the mentally ill psychopaths and cowards. History proves this beyond a doubt.

      In the past all students had to have hunter safety class before they can take a drivers Ed class that’s when they were taught how to respect firearms and not to play with it like a toy.

                The problem is that you people (America) have guns easily available stop that and it'll solve your problems.
                You're just handing out guns and ammo in the malls and then crying over mass shooting. Why are you giving guns to the normal citizens in the first place? It's not a toy there's a difference between a Nerf and an actual gun. That's the highest reach of stupidity. And then every other year crying over mass shooting 🤨it's never been a surprise you all created it. Stupid brainless dumbs.

                      Racists cause mass shootings. Racists drive around with trump bumper stickers. Racists murder kids. Racists murder all kinds of people. Racists are also destroying the environment.

                                I think this is the most stupid thing in the whole US, to allow ALL the citizes to buy all the weapons they want including automatic rifles - fooling Yourself, that this is for Your own safety. In every society there is a group of idiots or sick people. But in Europe if they want to hurt someone, they can get maybe a knife or something like this. In US they can easily obtain a machine gun. How can You be so stupid? I understand that this is a dollar topic becaue of all this money coming from sale of those weapons, but come on, kids with kevlar backpacks? I do not know, I know for sure I would never want to live in such a country.

                                  Guns DONT kill people... PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE!! if someone wants to go on a " mass shooting " and doesnt have a " Evil gun " to do it with... they can use a knife or something else. Now ..maybe the same number of people don't die ..but I dare ANYONE to talk that argument to anyone's family that still lost their loved one!! Also.. especially with young people..if they don't have a gun to use ..u don't think they wouldn't turn to some sort of pyrotechnics!!?? Fires right up ANY kids alley!!

                                    You have never protected your family with a gun and you never will . You like to play with guns because they make you feel powerful and strong.

                                  Mass shootings are caused by a combination of the collapse of belief systems, nihilism, the lack of purpose that danger and war provides many people especially young men and lastly the need to matter at whatever cost.

Why? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWwQjH7T1bE White people are something else.

                                                  Institutions, wether medical, educational or religious project too much information, sometimes confusing people instead of teaching them to use discernment to combat the issues themselves, making the projections a tool for control, rather than inform or heal (boils down to greed; no money in it if the person actually heals, sad really). Its mass control for mass profit and most care less because as long as they get a check to feed themselves and ones they love, they feel content. True contentment comes from true freedom; not the illusion thereof. If we raised or grew our own food and had our own land, the amount of sick would drastically drop, but they wont tell or teach that. Control is key for the greed machine. Look up agendas 21, 30, 50.

I like how he tries to disprove mental illness playing a role in all of this and then completely ignores that those people could just be wired wrong from the beginning. Then the end.. who didn't see that coming. It's all so easy, people!
