    Default Tragic

    http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/06...ng-in-moncton/

    Why are people committing such crazy, violent senseless acts? WWW? What went wrong?

    Prayers to all involved.

    Canada has a gun problem.

    Search as long as you want, and you'll never find a reference to a gun killing anyone.

    I do hope there's an investigation into how three "professionals" were killed.

    I don't think anyone was implying that guns kill people.

    No matter what the gun control might be...those that want to kill will find a way. You will NEVER stop these loonies who get their jollies out of killing multiple people.| If it is not a gun then it will be a knife...or strangulation etc

    You are right. A gun has never been convicted in a death. People are the problem. When bleeding hearts took away the ability to parent and "experts" reinforced a sense of entitlement in our children coupled with desensitization in movies and viola, todays culture. People are no longer taught respect, they are no longer concerned with consequences as they are now perks. This wrongdoer as with so many others will have people try mould him into a functioning person rather than to punish him. Cause and effect are no longer fashionable.

    Exactly, but I'm just glad that Canada doesn't have the "Right to bear arms" like the USA. Far more murders and mass shootings than here (per capita)

    This is a given. We are on average less hands on and rely more on the constabulary. I read Canadians have more weapons per capita than Americans but mostly rifles and such. On average when a stranger saunters through our yard we can on 911 not 357 and commence to indiscriminately firing away.

    Desensitization is proven to work and therein lies a lot of the problem. What with the violent content on TV and in movies those with problems think their response not only acceptable but necessary. As though they are doing something terribly necessary. Performing for the public good as it were. Combine this with a complete and utter lack of respect for their fellow man and there you have it. Back when parents were allowed to parent and they taught respect to their children this sort of thing was not as prevalent. We now have generations of children with no mentors as to how an raise a child to respect others and have a healthy fear of the law. Until we can instill discipline into society tempered with respect we shall move ever closer to anarchy.

    Had the news pieces made mention of his family, I had not noticed.

    People don't kill people, cammo kills people!
