    You can say anything that you want. I believe that that You cry to GOD to help you with what you are creating. God gave you a free will and every time you mess up, you cry “GOD”. God will help you, but you must take the first step. Show him that you want his help. You put money and no gun control,in front of GOD, what do you expect to happen? “If am your parent. If I keep bailing you out, you will never respect me.” You will continue to look for more. GROW UP AMERICA. GOD is letting you reap what you sew. I feel deeply for all the parents and friends an family involved in this sad situation.

    People you all need to wake up, and ask yourself what kind of people we are?.What kind of people would go into a school and shoot children?. The answer is Americans. We have done it in Iraq, Afganistan, Vietnam, and here at home. It is who we are, we are sick people. When your sole mission in this world is to kill people all over the world, dont you think it will come home to us sometime.This thwe world we helped to create, now we are the sole driver of that hell we have created
    The original settlers from Europe, who was driven out of England, were criminals, murderer, and the dregs of those societiers. Please go back and read the history of those people, and ask yourself have we changed, or have their behaviour rubbed off on the rest of us?.
    We arm the rest of the world and watched them kill each other, that is who we are. Dont be alarmed when some of us turn on each other. When president Obama, stood up there shedding Crockdile tears, somebody should asked him about the children in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yamen that he isd dropping bombs on How do he feel about them?. We need to take a look at ourselves. Revisit our CONSTITUTION, the second amendment, in order to understand why we have so much problems..
