What has happened to our young people? How can a young mind even imagine perpetrating this kind of act on innocents?

This is not a gun control issue. This is a culture issue. We have more laws governing gun ownership than anytime in U.S. history.

We must look at as a nation, how we have cheapened human life. Whether it's abortion on demand, violent video games (scored by how efficiently you kill), or rap songs and music videos glorifying violence and victimizing women.

We are programming the youth and future of our nation with violence. We need to teach what is right and wrong and that there are consequences for one's actions. Gun control laws will not make any difference. Look at Washington, D.C., the murder capital of the U.S. They have the strictest gun laws in the nation, and it does not help.

Keep people like the Democrats from introducing new gun bills. We can and must change our culture.
