In the past Americans had more access to guns, but now there are all of these violent acts by sick people. I think we need to look at the overall mood in America. The politicians from local to federal are out of control with regulations. People talk about the good old days, the rule of law, punishment for the crime, etc. I think there is an ugly cloud of a helpless feeling out there. For so many, no jobs, no money, no parents, no God, no future. The corruption is out of control. So many little people out here don't think they will ever get a chance. People talk all the time about the corruption in the political system, and it very rare that anyone goes to jail. The unemployeed sit at home getting a check for not working, too short on time.
