    I dunno, guys, but is it me?? Or is anyone else getting really sick of hearing about these mass shootings happening almost on a monthly basis it seems. I mean, is this the twilight zone or something?

    Every freakin month now, there's another mass shooting where dozens of lives are lost. Yet, nothing is done.

    Something has got to change. Something is not right here, where we as a society just accept mass shootings as part of the risk of going to work, or going to school, or even going to the movies. This is ridiculous. Are we just plain stupid? Do we not care? I dont even see a thread about the Navy Yard shootings that happened yesterday.

    I feel like people just dont care anymore, like meh....another one. So what?

    Rest assured, this will not be the last mass shooting in the US. Does anyone even give a fuck?

    I saw that yesterday when it was previously reported. In my opinion, there has been a bit of a trend recently with these type of shootings. People are definitely getting bolder and willing to take chances.

    it depends. I have many friends in the armed forces and law enforcement and i'm also closely tied to criminal justice affairs to these events reminds us to be more vigilant and i always encourage my peers to be too. unfortunately some people see it as "it will never happen to me" so they generally tend to be a bit more careless than they probably should be

    Yes, ideally that part of your constitution that grants the right to weapons needs to be removed. But it will never happen, of course.

    I actually came from abroad to study here in the US, and in the back of my mind it freaks me out knowing that everyone can have a gun legally. I'm not used to having guns around so easily, it really freaks me out. I know that it's their right to have a gun so I don't complain, it's just kinda scary.

    I heard about the shootings and felt devastated by it. The loss of life so meaninglessly. Although didn't that happen in like some kind of Navy place? So it's not exactly an act of a random citizen shooting up the place (which is even worse).

    Oh, just relax and turn on the TV. I'm sure there is a wide variety of shoot-em-up movies on cable, to take your mind off the news.

    Yes, it happened in the Navy Yard.... whatever that is.
    Common sense gun control comes to mind as a possible solution, but the idiots of America will feel as if one of their personal rights and freedom is being taken away.... but what about everyone's right to safety? what about my right to go around not living in fear of being killed by some lunatic with a gun?

    There needs to be that moment....that tipping point where people are like enough!"...

    I don't think people are that stupid. I'm sure the majority of the world would like a change, but they just can't make things happen. Their voices are not heard.

    Well my two cents on gun control would be to allow them the right to go out and get a gun, just make it incredibly difficult to obtain one. They need to take psychological tests to ensure that they're not insane, they need to have several referrers, and maybe have to check it in every month or something.

    I'm not too knowledgeable on the subject, but I do agree with you that there should be something in place for all citizens to have peace of mind. Since I've been here, I just keep wondering "what if someone trips off and just shoots up the place?" I'm not used to thinking thoughts like that because guns aren't easy to get back home.

    Point being that there's not just the collective unconscious as speculated upon by Jung.

    But also a collective consciousness as speculated upon by Castaneda.

    Complacency reinforces reality.

    Certain people care. I think we are all just numb by the mass shooting. The government isn't doing much to prevent it.

    Lots of us care a lot. But the NRA and the 2nd amendment extremists are still on top politically. It's an ongoing political struggle to enact sensible gun control laws.
