Guns don't kill people, Ryan Seacrest kills people

So by now you have all read the story about the 19 year old asshole who shot up a mall somewhere in Nebraska. The story from the Associated Press or some other left leaning think tank uses the following paragraph:

It was the latest in a series of mass killings that have shocked the United States, where gun ownership is widespread and the right to possess arms is a fiercely contested constitutional issue currently on the agenda of the Supreme Court.

Automatically, Michael Moore will swoop down and claim we are nothing but a bunch of uneducated gun toting morons who love W. Hey Mikey - I am educated, I do not own a gun, and W is a boob. Now go have another cheeseburger.

It is not guns that are the problem. Malls and guns have co existed since Twin Pines Mall (or Lone Pine Mall) opened somewhere off of John F. Kennedy Boulevard (Who the Hell is John F. Kennedy?). It is amazing how stupid people are, and cannot see causal relationships.

So then, if malls and guns can co-exist, as I have shown above, what has triggered (bad pun, I know) this sudden violence in our streets and shops?

The paragraph in the story that really identifies the issue is:

"I'm a piece of shit," said a suicide note he left behind "but I'm going to be famous now," the newspaper said.
The problem is, everybody today under the age of 25 wants to be the next American Idol. These misguided fools would rather die than live a life of anonymity. I mean have you ever seen the auditions for American Idol? It is like a train wreck, you just cannot look away. This obsession of fame and fortune by our nation's youth is another thing that is going to lead to the demise of the USA. But before that, let's hope Brian Dunkleman doesn't grab a shot gun and head to the mall.

OK - Perhaps there was some mental illness involved. Next question. Why are the mentally ill not cared for properly?

You're right. People today want to be famous, want their "respect", want success without earning it.....I could go on. The problem lies with the media and the "have it now" mentality of society. "Keeping up with the Joneses" is now deadly for some people.

Personally, I like my small anonymous life. I have no need to be famous, to be recognized, or to have all the latest things everyone else does. I maintain my individuality by doing things the way I want in a quiet way.
