    Yet another "reaction" demand........ They have been flying left and right since last Friday.... Strange that in the late 80's and early 90's there were many shootings at postal facilities across the United States and for the most no one seemed to discuss possible solutions. Biggest offender of being silent on the problem was the United States Postal Service.

    Now days after every mass shooting the "reaction" to them is mainly to go after guns to solve the problem. Be damned that guns are not the problem that needs solving. The problem lies in our society and how it has evolved over the years. Statistics will so that comparing the 1950's to present day, there are more rapes, pedophiles, domestic abusers, shooting, mass shootings, gang bangers and a more lenient judicial system(mainly plea bargaining) today than in the 1950's.

    Other countries are now having similar problems with how there society has changed. For example: A series of uncoordinated mass stabbings, hammer attacks, and cleaver attacks in the People's Republic of China began in March 2010. The spate of attacks left at least 21 dead and some 90 injured. Analysts have blamed mental health problems caused by rapid social change for the rise in these kind of mass murder and murder-suicide incidents.

    The smarter move would be to divest in our society and fire up a gun shop. If I was a gamblin' man....
