I am talking about those who decide to take their own life. If you take your own life are you sane? Nope. They don't take their own they take someone else with theirs.

And not on all Americans as I know many but every year almost every month we get a report from the US that has this sort of tragedy.

Shooter identified: Ryan Lanza.

The Facebook profile pic that is circulating is apparently not the right guy... The name, though, comes from media with law enforcement sources.

Shooter was one of two brothers, that killed their Mother (who worked at the school) and their father.
Apparently the girlfriend is missing too.

This is just horrible!

US Incidents 122/311,591,917(Population) = .00000039153776

Huge statistical difference there. But hey, whatever gets you through the day.

School shooting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
see below, and you are looking at school shootings my comments weren't towards school shootings, it was toward someone who is going to commit suicide, they want to take someone else out as well either out of anger of for some other stupid reason.

Thousands of children are killed by guns in the U.S. - journal-news.net | News, sports, jobs, community information for Martinsburg - The Journal

Quote:
Canada is concerned because in the latest reported year, 153 Canadian children were killed by guns while France had only 109 children killed. In Japan, the number was zero.

The United States had 5,285 childhood gun deaths that same year, the Center for Disease Control reports.
For a study looking at 2008 and 2009

http://www.childrensdefense.org/chil...-guns-2012.pdf

Quote:
The 5,740 children and teens killed by guns in 2008 and 2009:
• Would fill more than 229 public school classrooms of 25 students each;
• Was greater than the number of U.S. military personnel killed in action in Iraq and
Afghanistan (5,013).2
I didn't even try that hard to look. You could have checked FexL instead with that common comment insinuate that someone is making something up.

Shall we go on about not being in their culture? if it is not culture based than what is it?
