    People suffering from mental illness are going to be the people blamed for this by Republicans. I am also hearing Republicans blame the lack of Religion in schools and in society as a whole as a factor in these mass shootings. Democrats will blame the guns and the ease of access in which you can get them. As well as Trumps rhetoric causing hatred of certain people. Its a combination of a lot of factors in my opinion. As a non believer myself I don't like the Religion argument they are making. Plenty of horrible crap has been done by "religious" people.


    Its a complicated issue with lots of causes in my opinion.

    What do you think is the main cause or causes? Thoughts?

    Politics is a forbidden topic on Martialtalk. This is heading in that direction.

    The problem is, the rest of the world only sees the religious side or the gun side, never mind the millions of decent religious people, or the decent gun owners, this is no different to someone hiring a commercial vehicle, and driving it into innocent people in London or Paris. It surely is mental illness combined with a deterioration of moral values, banning certain religions or guns will change very little.

    Ditto. Why bring this up in a MA forum?

    Before this thread gets locked, I believe there's a fix for the problem. The captured shooters should be made to do Public Service Announcements declaring they didn't understand the consequences of their actions.

    This isn't meant as a political statement, but rather an advertising strategy.

    As already stated, no politics on this board. If you wish to discuss politics, feel free to head over to US Message Board - Political Discussion Forum. Thread is being locked.

    Thank you,
