Default Re: The Trend Continues

It's all how you're raised in my opinion. Take me for example, I grew up watching horror flicks with my father religiously. I'd seen every horror film made by the time I was seven years old, yet the thought never entered my mind to kill somebody brutally.

Parents these days, my generation's a dying breed. Most of the people I've met my age are as well off as I am, but anymore, parents will pay such close attention to their children but once they hit that teenage age, they shoo them right out the door. Then when their kids go off on a killing spree, they say, "I just don't know what went wrong." That's right, they didn't know.

About as close as you'll get to an update.

In addition to this, the connection between some/many/most school shootings needs to be studied. Unfortunately, actual and valid ways to prevent this sort of thing will never, ever be implemented, and instead people will come up with asinine things that don't work to give them a false sense of security.

And so it goes.

to get to a deeper level, human nature is inherently corrupt and peeps must fight to remain good in this corruptive world.

You could also argue that in a huge country like the USA, one shooting in a school every, I dunno, couple of months, aint (<-specifically for ZFR) that statistically meaningful
