69. Fox News and the other paranoia-inducing public media outlets are big causes of this.

To regulate the guns without regulating the lying and constant preaching of violence that comes from Fox and the thousands of radio outlets that do little more than make anybody who disagrees with the speaker into a Satan worthy of being shot down will not solve the problem.

There are always going to be the crazies out there, and if you have these public radio stations and TV channels constantly churning out hate and ideas calculated to turn even the half-sane among us into irrational robots of hate, you're going to have horrors like this happen. Events like this do not happen in a vacuum. They are mulled over, fantasized, justified within, and slowly turned into reality.

There are two parts to the problem: the guns and the mind-set of the people who use the guns. There have to be ways of dealing with both.
