I think that Morgan Freeman is entirely right about what is motivating these killers

Though I think that the Independent is completely wrong when it says that Morgan Freeman and Piers Morgan "completely agree," I do think that Freeman is right:
"You want to know why? This may sound cynical, but here's why. It's because of the way the mediar reports on it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing somthing worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody." . . .

I think that the reason why is because they can, and they can because they face no opposition, and they face no opposition because it's prohibited by gun control laws.
We need our Second Amendment rights back, so that we can defend ourselves and our children. Gun control prohibitions enforce a bizarre and unnatural state of defenseless on us, while giving us no protection at all. Banning guns may suit the political left's extensive, totalitarian government control agenda, but it does nothing for our safety. Children just died because of it.
Unfortunately, gun control has a self-sustaining quality. Disarmament leads to tragedy, which leads to more gun control laws and more disarmament and more tragedies. We need to break the downward cycle of worse than useless gun control laws and restore the Second Amendment, so that it is useful in daily life, and not merely some decorative script on an old piece of parchment. I want my Second Amendment rights back! All of them!

Um, replying to what has been proven to be "spam" is about typical of the viewpoint.
