Deadly Bastards

Talking to a buddy of mine about the Aurora shooting.  Horribly, horribly tragic.   These things always disturb me to the core.

And Brian Ross and George Stephanolpulous reach for new lows in "Journalism", and they can just go straight to Hell, do not pass GO, do not collect $200.   Get out of my sight.

You know what? There are evil bastards in the world. Always have been and we're not going to change that. Some people just don't give a damn, and no amount of positive self-esteem re-enforcement in grammar school will fix it. So we're just going to have to deal with the occasional nut who will do shit like this. And personally, I think the best way to deal with it is to make sure that when such a crazy bastard goes to execute his grand plan, to ensure he won't get very far because there's at least 10 people in the room with guns of their own who AREN'T crazy bastards, but ... Sheep Dogs, basically. Protectors. Responsible adults who *DO* give a damn.

Which will, in turn, reduce (but not eliminate) the number of crazy bastards who will try, because they will see that their chances of succeeding ... being the only one in the room with a gun ... to cause the tragedy they wish to perpetrate ... have dropped significantly after a few of his predecessors are dropped before they get very far.
