    Your piece acts like you did research, but the lack of detail in your reasoning and seemed bias make this a dangerous option article.

    Thank you Dr. Schoenewolf! I believe that much of the angst American culture is suffering has come from from the Left side of the political spectrum with its Moral Relativism, Entitlement mentality and obsession with power and control. What scares me is the recent escalation with the Left becoming so angry and irrational since Trump got elected. I am seeing pure, distilled hatred from them and many on the Right are responding in kind because they are sick and tired of being maligned unfairly. I have never thought we could experience a second Civil War until this last year. Once people become this angry it is hard to discuss these points rationally, but I sure hope something changes for the better. The more respected individuals like yourself making the points you made will help. Thank you again!

      The way you type… the things you’re saying… Don’t speak like Everything is Capitalized (very reminiscent of a certain Twitter account).

      Also, people are doing it for the fame. The rise of shootings is extremely disgusting and horrific, but people such as the Columbine shooters have actual fans on the internet platform. It’s sickening, and it’s what copycat murderers want.

    Thank you for your power article. I met my father, in Memphis, where I was born, April 6, 1968. Dr. King was gunned down, in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 5, 1968. I was in Los Angeles, California, where I was raised. The Academy Awards were cancelled, of course.

    I am also a survivor of the Oklahoma City Bombing, Wednesday, April 19, 1995, 9:02AM. My stepfather, who raised me was from Oklahoma, where I have deep family roots. tThe people of Oklahoma are the salt of the earth.

    The United States of America is a wonderful country, my country. I pray my country heals itself. However, today, I am an international person in that I traveled our planet extensively since childhood, and speak five languages.

    God Bless the United States of America.

    Cordially, I remain,

    Feminism is NOT to blame for mass shootings. Radical, militant feminists are rare. Feminists advocate for men to be freed from the constraints of societal expectations of “real men”. Feminists want men to be more involved in the day to day rearing of children. Feminists have paved the way for men to discuss being sexually abused. Feminists want to create a culture of respect for all genders.

    It is when men rage violently against the loss of their un-earned privileges that mass shootings occur. The culture that encourages men to believe that they are superior over women is one that encourages violence as retribution.
