I can't answer that question, I doubt anyone can. Obviously this kid needed mental health and, judging from the pictures of the home he lived in, it appears that money was not a problem. Usually the one factor that ties these horrendous events together is the fact that mental health problems have not been addressed and the killer has been able to find access to a gun(s).
In my opinion the discussion we should be having right along with stronger gun laws is this: UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE. And when we discuss care for everyone in this country, we should talk about leaving the drug companies out of the discussion. Too many people are over-medicated. In fact, I won't be surprised one bit if we find out this shooter was on various medications. Let's face it, we live in a "throw some drugs at the problem" society.
Since I'm not an expert in the field of..... anything. Lets ask some experts about what's wrong with our country and see if we can put a finger on what would have triggered this guy. These people get paid big bucks to give us advice:
We don't have the luxury of time..... if the president wins I don't know how we survive.I don't know how my industry is going to survive… I won't make a deal with the devil... Your religion is going to come under attack... (snip) I will tell you that we purchased more farmland, as a family. And I recommend that if you have the chance you buy farmland. Get the hell out of the east... Get your kids out of the schools that are indoctrinating them with socialism... May I highly suggest you get grandfathered into the Second Amendment today and don't forget the ammunition.
That valuable info comes to us from this overly pasty white guy:
According to this guy
by the name of Bryan Fischer who has a radio show, the problem was that we don't have the 10 Commandments hanging in the school. Saying "God is not going to go where he is not wanted", and putting the blame squarely on school administrators.
Fox "News" anchor/actor/talking head Steve Deace also blamed the school. The schools promote a "culture of death" because there is no God among other reasons (writing assignments, movies, etc). Oddly he doesn't blame his own network for showing gory details on a regular basis.
This guy takes the cake. This vile, horrible man who spews this evil bull-shit. He also blames the school, but not just the school but God! Yes, God did not stop the shooter because, basically God is pissed off that we're not bringing God into the schools.
We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools. Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?
He has said this before, earlier this year regarding the CO movie theater shooting:
We don't have a crime problem, a gun problem or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem. And since we've ordered God out of our schools, and communities, the military and public conversations, you know we really shouldn't act so surprised ... when all hell breaks loose.
I swear, this guy makes my butt hurt seriously bad! From what I learned of my small amount of religious education God is EVERYWHERE. Why would God not be in the school, military, etc if He is supposed to be in our hearts. Do we really need the 10 commandments and shit posted on our walls everywhere? (That sounds suspiciously like "indoctrination"). If we believe in God we are supposed to act accordingly!
