Netizens’ reaction on this incident


Perhaps we have to acknowledge that we have reached a point of moral lawlessness in this country and that multiple factors extend beyond partisan party lines and second amendment arguments. All the thoughts and prayers and vigils and proponents of gun control and background checks and age limits have not changed our epidemic of gun violence. We are now what we once were… the wild west, a violent control society.


What we’ve learned recently regarding these extraordinary shootings is it doesn’t make a difference if the state has strict gun laws or lax gun laws. Or what the race of the shooter is. But they have all been men doing the shooting. What’s up with that?


I believe that there are something like four hundred million guns in this country currently. Yet, so often I hear that more guns will make us all safer. Since you have obviously given this a great deal of thought, what number of guns do you believe we need in order to make our streets, schools and other public spaces safer?
