    4 dead, 2 wounded in Southern California stabbings

    as many have said, take away 1 tool, another will be used.

    BBC NEWS | Health | Doctors' kitchen knives ban call

    england has banned guns, and now knives cause the gun ban didn't work.

    we live in a very angry time. we see it daily in here with people anxious to get a jab in or associate all the worlds problems with *the other side*. our "leadership" makes threats on each other daily and the media makes everyone an extreme version of whatever side they may be on.

    the "tools" are not the issue. we are.

    Yep. It reminds me of how really young kids that listen to whatever entertainment posing as a newsy program on the television with whatever fear based crap filters down. Also, the paralyzing effect of the Cold War crap. That purveying sense of hopelessness.

    We live in a society where people are actually fighting for or against corporate owned media.

    both sides have their extremes wanting death to the other side. we only seem to "wake up" even if for a moment when someone actually goes out and does it. but even then we want so bad to label that person as a rep from the OTHER side when they are in fact, just a crazy ass mofo in a class of their own regardless of their politics.

    maybe this is how our "civil war" is being fought today.

    I think this is an attempt to sow division and has been going on for a good 15 years and we have an entire generation that thinks this is how it's done. So, it's reactive. Not sure if that qualifies as a civil war.

    Was a bayonet on the end of an AK47 used?

    That would be a twist wouldn't it?

    i don't think we have an entire generation that things this is how it's done. none of my nephews or nieces would ever think this is appropriate. i would agree "civil war" in the traditional line up and take turns firing at the other side simply isn't happening. but i don't think we'll get to that point. but we sure are NOT being "civil" to each other these days.

    500 hours of sensationalized, sobbing, tear jerking "let's get those evil guns!" coverage of the two shootings on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN etc........
    This won't get 30 seconds coverage.
    The media is clearly a threat to the Constitution.

    If good Americans really cared, they take note of advertisers on those networks and boycott those advertisers like their lives depended on it (it might if they get their way)

    People have in their possession the ability to make changes....but they refuse to use it.
