Obscurity: No Crueler Punishment!

It's impossible to predict someones actions. This is not a crazy person this is a selfish and curel person that felt the "world" owed him something or did him wrong and that was his way of lashing out at the "world". Gun laws can never and will never stop this. The only thing gun laws do is take guns away from people to protect themselves from these incidents and rogue governments which is virtually the direction ours is going to.

I feel awful about what happened in Colorado, but can we stop the hugging and the teddy bears? Just as society can become inured to violence, it can also become inured to sentiment. There is nothing so hackneyed in the world of photojournalism as pictures of the hugging and the shrines with candles and teddy bears after a tragedy, with a piano softly trilling in the background.

This accomplishes nothing. If you want to do something, please write a check to a good charity, a family financially harmed by the shooting, or send flowers to a specific person.
