    American School Shootings

    So weird to find myself posting here again, so here I go.

    Unfortunately I do watch news globally. Most of the times it just makes me cry.

    The recent school shootings in the US obviously came up on social media, especially Facebook, but I don't think Facebook is a good platform for old fashioned debate. So I will ask my questions here.

    What in your opinion is really the reason for the school shootings in the US?

    Choose your answer in the poll and tell me why you chose it.

    I chose 3 of the answers because I believe there are quite few factors that causes the school shootings in America. For those of you on this forum that doesn't know me. I am not an American, but do follow some of your news.

    From my observations the following factors contribute to the situation:-

    1. Bullying in schools are a big problem. This causes anger that leads or contributes to these school shootings.
    2. I find it amazing that you can keep an arsenal at your home in America and that children have access to such fire arms. Therefore I chose weak gun laws.
    3. Weak family structures and low moral values also contributes in my opinion. Children learn to love and cherish and preserve, not at school, but at home. If these values are not taught or carried over to children by their parents, America is fighting a loosing battle.
