The "garbage culture" we live in today in this country is responsible for the mentality that leads to these mass shootings. We live in a culture where simply being different is hailed as some grand expression of "individuality" and those who are not granted a license to express this "individuality" consider themselves to be 'slighted" and "dissed" by the larger society. They are then justified in taking their revenge on those who fail to see the significance of their simply being different.

President Obama and Vice President Biden gathered their children for a photo-op as Obama showily signed executive orders to prevent future mass shootings. It quickly became obvious that regulating the entertainment media wasn't part of his solution. Politics once more trumped policy.

Hollywood not only went unregulated, it went unmentioned. Biden announced that he had met with "229 groups from law enforcement agencies to public health officials to gun officials to gun advocacy groups to sportsmen and hunters and religious leaders."

He also met with Hollywood lobbyists and video game manufacturers, but was there anyone really expecting those meetings to amount...
