What is happening in America?

I grouped these stories together to give everyone the point of view of the victim and potential shooters to see if people will finally see that the problem isn’t just guns but mental health. As a world we need to treat the whole person instead of oversimplifying the problem and chalking it up to bad decision making. For the government and private interest, put aside your own selfish agenda and address the real problem…it’s not all about you! The top story comes out of the lone star state of Texas where multiple people shot at a Houston, Texas campus on Tuesday. One person detained, but person is not officially a suspect. Their is a movement to expand concealed weapons in the state of Texas but after this shooting that may not happen if the reports are true that the shooting was a result of a heated argument. Further more, state lawmakers continue to loosen gun laws even more as one state senator is trying to get a bill passed where students, faculty, and staff can carry concealed weapons on campus for protection. The second story is about a man out of Grapevine, Texas who shot his estranged wife and then himself at his daughter’s sweet 16 party. An argument turned the celebration into tragedy when Kelly Suckla allegedly killed Kristi Suckla never the front door of her parents’ home on Saturday in an ear shot of the party going on for their daughter. The last story is a familiar story in American today. In Albuquerque, New Mexico a teenager gundown his family over the weekend then planned to go to Wal Mart and shoot more people. Instead, the teen sent a picture of his dead mother to his girlfriend then spent much of Saturday with the girl going to church where his father was a pastor eventually admitting to killing his parents and three siblings. Oh and he is 15 years old…are we really shocked. The teen was hoping to die in a shootout with police (sounds like a video game), but it is unclear why he didn’t follow his plan. The teen shot his mother because of his anger issues and was annoyed, he then shot his sibling and became upset and decided to grab his parents’ assault rifle and ambushed his father. People need to wake up and see what is happening to America. The effects of guns are far reaching not only effecting families but complete stranger as well.

  1. i personally think people are doing this to themselves it seems like most of these young people are outcasts from being discriminated on by other people people still haven’t figured out they cant consider a group of people below them or put labels on them because they don’t fit in to there world that they have created people still haven’t figured out everyone has equal rights regardless of how they look talk act walk its just because people like to put labels on everyone else to help themselves feel better about themselves they just got tired of it all

    • I completely agree I just think it is sad that we as people think we are so advanced as a society but really you can boil it down to big high school. I wish more people would take the time to get to know these people and not cast people aside. The gun debate will last for a long time until the whole person is treated.

Tell me what you think.
