When I viewed the student's video clip all I saw were excuses upon more excuses and blame for what went wrong in 'Cho's' life, nothing was his fault. Was he truly mentally ill or just wanted attention and revenge for anyone that did him wrong? Cho had what some youngsters couldn't have, a college education, he was fortunate enough to be furthering his education, so many kids now days aren't fortunate enough to have that chance, but one day Cho decided to toss all that down the drain because something wasn't going his way. Whatever happened to 'personal responsibility? It doesn't seem to exist anymore.
Adding more gun laws won't do the trick, we already have thousands upon thousands of laws in this country and none of those laws are preventing criminals from killing their next victim. Some laws are totally useless, this country has enough laws to reach the moon and back ten times over, and making more laws won't stop criminals.
The system needs to change
somehow, gun dealers need to know who they should not be selling
to. In this case, the gun dealer found out the person was a
mental case, and found out after the fact.
