    The kids aren't angry..they're having fun with no sympathy for life. To them shotting someone is like they learned from the gaming industry's. Those game are as violent extremely violent as can be. It's all in beded in their minds so it's fun a satisfaction of getting your object. Just like the Simpson's it show blood pouring out of a cat they just cut the head off..scenes later the cat is alive again all in one piece. It's to gar gone now there's no recovery from their mind set. Years past we didn't have this problem because games of such violence wasn't out to poison our children's minds. And because of that us adults can't own a gun to protect ourselves.. We have to just lay n get shoot or killed. That is Totally Wrong..We need to Protect Ourselves from harm.
    These ppl who are passing this Law find it right.. My one and only request is for them to get rid of their security guards and have no guns let's then see how long will last. TRY IT DEMOCRATS YOU MIGHT LIKE IT.
