If anyone makes political or religious comments, please edit your post if you do it without re-reading your post. I was watching the coverage of the Connecticut rampage while reading the news online and a thought popped into my mind- do these people buy into the talk of the end of the World? Why have they lost all sense of reason? Have they completely lost hope? Do they just not care? Are they truly insane/have serious problems that alter their mental state? If they ARE insane/have serious problems, I hope the medical examinations reveal whether they had medications in their system. If not, I'd like to see some information about whether any of the shooters have sought help. Were they turned down? Did they start treatment and run out of money or the desire to continue? Did they self-medicate? Did they just want to be noticed or "one-up" those who came before them? Not even a day after Connecticut, someone fired more than 50 shots outside a mall in CA, two separate shootings in Alabama- three dead+ shooter and three shot in a hospital + dead shooter.
