Obviously I feel these shootings need to stop, that the reasons and ideals behind them are petty and misguided, but that's obvious to every stable minded human being. What I want to know is why they've been happening so often. First let's talk about the reason behind some of these shootings: The Charleston Church shooting for instance, Dyllan Roof shot and killed 9 African American church goers in hopes to start a race war. The sandy Hook Elementary school shooting from 3 years ago, which was also the largest mass shooting to ever happen at an elementary or high school in the U.S., was literally pointless and resulted in the death and injury of dozens of young children, teachers, and volunteers in the school.
This is disappointing to say the least. To see that people aren't civil enough to keep their guns in their pants, and to see that the government isn't hardly making any moves to prevent this kind of thing makes me think about where the most powerful nations in the world is headed when it's own citizens are shooting each other mindlessly.
