    Recent events...

    Been thinking about that so called "Tucson Massacre"...

    Any thoughts? Aside from condolences?

    Tragic indeed but I can't seem to find details about security or why no one shot back?

    Thanks all.

    "Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik... gave more details about Loughner’s capture, saying that after he fired a first round of 31 bullets, a woman who had been wounded tried to grab the gun. He managed to slot a second magazine into the weapon but it failed, and two men grabbed the weapon and threw it away before subduing him."

    senseless... tragic... sad...
    Unfortunately there are portions of our society that create these types of nut jobs. From poor parenting, to turning a blind eye to bullying, to what we encompass as society. Unfortunately violence seems to be at the fore front of our culture.

    Instead of being adult about it and educate the younger generation, instead people want to stamp violence out completely, effectively taking away our ability to defend ourselves, or ignore it and say it's not really a problem.
