    America is a truly laughingstock failed state when it comes to civilian gun violence if Zelensky takes time out from Russia trying to murder him/subjugate his country to say Texas is not okay.

    But hey let's defend anti-trans comedians all day long.

In Japan, a deranged man stabbed 19 people to death. Imagine how it would look worse if that lunatic had a gun.
    I agree with you, Zauriel… Mass shootings and mental health are two different topics. Sanity isn’t the thing that prevents you from shooting people, it is the state of a person that feels good with himself/herself and the people around him/her. We should able to feel compassion towards people who suffer whatever the reason and prevent this suffering if possible. But it’s hard to feel compassion towards a young one who has killed children and who is ready to kill you… Removing weapons would help disturbed people and avoid unnecessary deaths.

    If I cross the road without looking on the left and on the right, the odds are that the cars will still stop or avoid me.
    Nevertheless it doesn’t mean I will do it.

    I’m personally satisfied by the fact I didn’t grow up in the USA… And that I don’t live there at the moment.

    I'm not so sure that it is.

    Every single one of them might be someone that we failed/didn't do right by.
