    Education is the key

    This is a legitimate question--not being a thread crapper, smart-ass or general ass-hat--but how and in what way could education be "the key". Please expound on your theory.

    With pleasure, I will give a swimming lesson to youngs kids un few minutes. Since the awnser needs to remain unpolitical I would like to take my time before I write it.

    Unfortunately in our current world, you are 100% correct.

    Agreed--if we let this stop our world and cower in fear and grief, "they" have won--regardless of who "they" are--be it a single deranged gunman or a terrorist organization. We have to remain strong and carry on.

    While the Las Vegas mass shooting was detestable, there have been deadlier massacres in America’s history.
    I'm sorry you feel that way but AK is in fact an audio forum, not a political one.

    Maybe that's because one event was more of a surprise than the other.

    Yes brov, you're right. Probably for logical reasons. Tom Petty was a musician and this is an audio forum. However you're right regarding the mentioning of the lost innocent lives because of some ....ed up mass murdering animal.
    The unfortunate reality is discussion - further than sending condolences - will end up into areas of corrupt politics, religion, anti-religion ignorance and bigotry that will, without a doubt get any thread on this subject closed with a few of us banned..... Them's my opinions anyway...

    Not much to say, this is now an inbuilt part of our lives by law and culture. I doubt much will change, other than possibly the legal description of what constitutes a modification for full automatic function of a semi-automatic firearm.

    Folks,
    Let's keep this about the horrible loss of life, thoughts for the victims etc, and keep the politics and religion out of it.
    Regards,
    JUim

    And that is bleeding into this thread and why I'll stay out of it. You'v been ranting all over the forum judging other members and demanding they express their feelings.

    Guess what you can't judge anyone....without looking like a fool.

    This was kinda judgy:

    I don't want to have fellowship with such hard hearted, cold people who are more concerned with themselves and their silly hobby than what really matters most.

    Again, sending you thoughts and prayers.

    Point taken.

    Okay so I apologize for that and was NOT my intention.

    Now get this back on track.

    Thanks.

    Yes please keep on track! It is NOT about petty squabbles. Keep this about the victims and their families.
