Re: How can we prevent another mass shooting?
Wipe out mental illness + hate + revenge and that would take care of a whole lot of them. That is as likely to happen as keeping guns out of the hands of people who are not licensed/authorized to own and carry...not happening at all People who carry out mass shootings in this country almost always have at least one of...if not all of...the three things I mentioned here.. Dylan Roof comes to mind - the man (young man) who took out the 8 Mother Emmanuel church members in Charleston some years back. Another is the man who killed many and brought on holy terror at that country music concert in Las Vegas in recent years. Mental illness is not color, ethnicity nor religion specific. People from all walks of life have some form of it and some so extreme that they can calmly walk into mass (or small) gatherings and calmly kill...can even kill the most innocent of us all...our children. What CAN we do? The problem with shooting back (as I see it) is that with more people shooting and potentially more bullets flying, innocents may get in the way and even more people killed. Is that a risk worth taking? Tough one to answer. Just my personal opine and thoughts.
