    But the problem with this focus is there is no real way to cease this, or guns, someone that is thinking about killing a bunch of people is not going to say OH it is againist the law for me have one of these. That IMO is just not realistic, so it becmes ONLY about what might really intervene here that is doable - funding, and if that fails, well we all be very busy here on WS !

    Is about foucsing on what can really be done to intervene........

    Let pretend..........day after tomm not one more gun is allowed to be purchased in AMerica. Well, there are 496 million registered one and god knows how many not ----kinda silly IMO

    As the last year has proven it is just a meritless distraction - preventing DOABLE (maybe) addressing this .... same with internet, it is not going to be controlled, same with violent games unenforceable - our only choice is to try to do something that, as a society we might be able to have some meaningful intervention..........

    RSBM for focus

    I can only image ER was "roommate matched". JMO

    On the Capri website it states:

    - - - > Who filled out the "roommate matching profile form" and
    other forms when ER's paperwork was submitted???

    Not sure if this accurate, but worth pondering, we have become a two working parent society - I kinda think other nations there is a "at home mom", providing structure morals etc

    In the animal kingdom mom does not let her babies be "left alone" untill ........I think that is huge here in US - what is the solution to that angle no clue

    but I think a major issue with all this .....

    Good point.

    Probably add another layer of bureaucracy to be staffed by law enforcement officers and mental health professionals. Never mind that ER had contact with both law enforcement officers and mental health professionals numerous times in his life. It's not their fault he went on a rampage. The solution is we just need MORE law enforcement officers and mental health professionals.

    I think the Anti-Federalists (the politicians who supported the insertion of the Bill of Rights in the Constitution) understood that he greatest danger we face is the intrusive powers of the state.

    I also think it is clear that these events have a huge copycat association. In the U.S., we're always talking about guns, shootings, mental health, etc. - these topics are more taboo in some countries. I live in an upper middle class town that had a bizarre amount of high school suicides in the last few years - they keep holding all these assemblies trying to "fix" it, but I think the more attention they give, the more kids consider it. I believe the number of incidents is a direct result of being exposed to it so consistently, because there doesn't seem to be anything else explaining it.

    From reading the manifesto it seems the only reason he killed the roommates - in particular- was to get them out of the way so he could lure others to his apartment to torture and kill them.

    He was mad at the whole world. He wasn't that discriminating in his targets IMO

    I hate to say this but I don't think there is a doable option that will stop rampage killings.

    Sometimes the copycatting is explicit. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold set out with the intention of topping Timothy McVeigh's body count. They even chose the date of their rampage, April 20th, because of McVeigh. And Seung-Hui Cho idolized the Columbine killers and chose a date in April (the 16th, I believe) as well.

    I thought that too. I also thought Seung-Hui Cho, Andrew Cunanan, and Lori Drew.

    I tend to think that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were very angry that Timothy McVeigh was sentenced to die in Denver and in the Supermax Prison in nearby Florence.

    They were also angry that Ramzi Yousef and Ted Kaczynski were there too around the time McVeigh entered that prison. Even though this is not mentioned by them, but makes you wonder if it was related to those series of imprisonments. This is what I think.
