So we have blamed video games, disorders, SSRIs...think it is about time to blame vaccines, too

We can just keep throwing all the sacred outrages at the wall to see what sticks...

Or we could admit there is absolutely no defensible reason for a private citizen to legally buy a weapon that shoots 6 rounds a second and accepts extended magazines. You know, whichever.

1. They've tried just about every brand of deflection out there.

 

Now they will start with the "over the top" inputs about banning rubber band and marshmallow guns.

They predictable, so they can be defeated.

6. Potato guns

They can (for real by the way, rarely) take an eye out.

2. I think we should blame shaving cream

It never gets blamed for anything, it it deserves it more than most.

8. We could blame the Boy Scouts.

Don't they have a merit badge for gun stuff? Teach all those little scouts how to blow each other away.

11. Don't forget Aspergers, special ed, homeschooling, intelligence, shyness, a terrible mother....

Huge K&R.

Its been unbelievable to see the blame parade - ANYTHING is being considered but easy access to guns that can slaughter large numbers of people.

12. I dunno...

 

Clearly he used a gun to commit the crimes, so we know the 'how' part.

Seems to me that the 'why' part is just as if not more important to know.

I just don't think repeating "guns are bad" is of much use, as everyone agrees that a gun can
be bad. If we knew why (or where to place the 'blame'), then perhaps
this sort of thing can be prevented from happening again...at least until guns are completely
outlawed, which probably won't happen.

13. Sure let's find the why, but lots of people trot out their pet, and entirely unproven, beliefs

And those just don't help at all.

14. you forgot doomsday fear

and the winter blues thing ... but wait he shot his mom in the face, it had to be his fear of women or higher taxes.

This whole thing is just sad. And I mean the deaths not the OP. Hopefully at least maybe we can make some meaningful change if not for anything else just so that these lives were not taken for nothing.

18. I blame the ice cream cartel.

why not? no one is going to talk about the gun corps or the various militia groups or the crazy survivalists or gun organizations, so what the hell, Blue Bell Ice Cream is to blame!
