He will place the blame on everything except the NRA and easy access to guns!!! Fuckwit!!!
While I agree that the easy access to guns is a large part of the problem, I've come to the opinion that the biggest problem in the US is the culture. There are other countries where gun ownership is as high as the US but don't have the same level of mass killings. The problem is that culturally they have the understanding the problems are solved by shooting the bad guys. That's not necessarily a conscious understanding but if you look at their entire entertainment industry, that's the message that's proclaimed. If you look at movies and TV shows from other countries (those that aren't obviously influenced by the US) they don't have the same "shoot the bad guys" mentality running through them. From that viewpoint it becomes understandable how someone can take that attitude and designate the "bad guys" as anyone who has done them wrong or can be made to represent those people.
I absolutely agree that it should be much harder for people to get guns in the US, but until they address the cultural issues I don't think shootings like this are going to go away.
