    Well, if they an’t smokin’n dope, thier out shoot’n up the schools !!!

    I was about 3 blocks away when the the school shooting happened.
    I have lived in Littleton for all my life and I got to tell ya, it is a great place to live !

    But, I don’t know what is getting into these kids around here.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_worried}

    It really makes me wonder what is going to happen on Jan. 1st when POT is legal here.
    All I can say is, I’m glad my kids are grown and out of the public school system.

     

    Hope all is well with you and yours this Christmas season !

    I was born and raised in western colorado and just recently moved to Alaska. One of the reasons  was because of all the crazy stuff going on in that state. I remember when colorado was  an untamed place it was a great place to live without a bunch of weirdos and stupid laws being shoved down our throats. Not sure what the future holds for that state but one thing is for sure I wont be a part of it.

    IMO, when one starts to look at the worldview of most of these shooters, it becomes easier to figure out. They are continually bombarded with messages about how unfair life is and how other people owe them. Eventually something snaps. In this latest shooting, the young man spouted off about how bad republicans are and how they want to “let ‘em die”. He talked about how they are on the wrong side of obamacare, women’s rights (abortion?), gun laws, climate change, etc.

    What do we expect to happen when we keep pushing feelings of victimization on young people? We tell them they are basically helpless, so when something happens and they feel they can’t don anything about it, they’re logically going to try to get back by doing the one thing they CAN do: harm those who they feel are responsible.

    The great thing for the MSM is that they can now grab onto a NEW tragedy and even further propagate their victimhood propaganda.

    What shouldn’t be lost in the process is the fact that Colorado just enacted a laundry list of ‘gun control laws’ that were ‘guaranteed’ to help keep this stuff from happening. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_brick_wall}

    Exactly right Chris!  Throw in an overdose on Granola with the blurring of the lines between right and wrong, i.e. everything’s okay as long as you can make it right in your own eyes, and it’s perfectly set up for an epidemic of pain & suffering for those who remain.  Add to that areas that these cowards know to be shooting ranges since law-abiding citizens aren’t allowed to carry there.  Pure definition of insanity here – doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.  Beautiful country with a lot of crazy people.
