There's also a lot of debate now about how the uncivil and violent RHETORIC might be responsible for the man taking the action he did.
Like they're blaming what the polititians SAY to each other or ABOUT each other was the cause of all this.
I have what's considered(these days) an odd and dissmissed philosophy about these things. I tend to blame the guy who PULLED THE TRIGGER for what happened. I mean, EVERYBODY has been exposed to the same insulting rhetoric, trash talk and mean spirited blubbering that the SHOOTER has, but how many OTHERS bothered to pick up a gun and try to KILL people over it?
2nd Amendment be DAMNED. OK, show of hands.....
How many forum members are part of "A well regulated militia"? Well, not ME.
Trying to blame what people say to or ABOUT someone else, or mindlessly "tweet" back and forth about some "molehill" issue made mountainous only serves to dilute how TROUBLED these type of individuals are, and makes it possible for others considering such action to feel it's OK to follow through. I mean, who's going to blame THEM? It's TRUMPS fault for "tweeting" such nasty stuff. Or HILLARY'S fault for whining about this person or that. Or the REPUBLICAN'S fault for doing what they've ALWAYS done, or the DEMOCRAT'S fault for doing what THEY'VE always done.
Certainly not MY fault. SOMEBODY had to do something about it, and I've got the 2nd AMENDMENT to "protect" me, so why NOT
blow them all away?
