marion cotillard gun violence

"I've never felt good about guns. Especially when it’s out of control. Sadly, I guess, it's in America's culture. And I believe it's going to be hard to change that because some people can't be secure without it. It’s creating at the same time this insecurity. It's a vicious circle."

    She is obviously short on brain cells. We need them to protect us from the crazies. THE CRAZIES ARE THE ONES WHO SHOULDN'T BE GIVEN GUNS and half the time, THEY STEAL EM! If anything, hide your guns better.

    This is not a gun issue, its a mental health issue

    It IS a gun issue as well as mental health issue. Come on, if it weren't a gun issue, would we be hearing about these mass shootings every couple of months? It is horrifying. Especially coming from Europe where stuff like this just doesn't happen. Not THAT often. Not nearly that often… Thank God that I live in Europe. I can't imagine ever feeling relatively safe if I knew that any crazy person could just buy a gun and carry out a massacre in the nearest public building.

    Re: Stacibee – But don't you find it sad that Americans are so afraid of each other? I live in Canada and have never felt the need to protect myself from other Canadians. We have guns for hunting, but they could never be used for protection because they are locked up, and the ammo is also locked up in a different location.

    Re: Stacibee

    YOU are one of the crazies I can tell. Stop voting for America's #1 enemy. The Republican party.

    Re: Stacibee – Nobody needs guns. NOBODY. Do you really want to live in a world where people walk in the streets with AK-47 in their hands?

    Re: rosebud99 – Interesting to analyze this, yes…and that just brings up the thought that there are a variety of factors at play to blame for these sickening mass murder shootings that somehow keep happening. We as a nation and people surely need to address the causes and prevent further unnecessary suffering. So tragic and also scary to learn that things like this continue to take place far too often.

    I also live in Europe, and they don't just hand out guns to everyone, thank God! you have to get a certificate and you have to be a trained gun-user, plus they do a complete check on your background, and by complete, I mean EVERYTHING! this is how it should be, not being able to get a freakiing gun at practically Wallmart for a few bucks, it's disgusting!

    Re: Stacibee – But there are crazies and in america they'll alway's will be…I dont think hiding a gun in a "better place" in the answer

    Re: Ceee – You are right - there are a lot of factors. One of which might be how we see gun violence as a form of entertainment. After people watched the horrific news of this shooting, many of them probably watched shootings on a crime show (just fro fun), meanwhile, their 10 year old was in his room shooting hundreds of people in a video game (just for fun). Sure, a healthy mind can separate these activities from reality, but how does this profusion of violent entertainment affect a fragile mind?

    Are we planning on doing away with the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment? there is a common thread with all these shootings, young men who have been bullied and humilated. mental health and the decline of the family unit is the real problem here.

    I was reading about mass murder of school children and the biggest one was in Bath Michigan an unhappy man blew up the school. I believe it was in 1929 so this shit has gone on for a long time. just imagine what its gonna be like when some of those chemicals they are loading into rockets in Syria filled with Saron gas, every living thing will die for miles.

    It's a combination of guns, mental health, and the way we treat each other, and pay attention to each other. These things ALL desperately need to be discussed and solved if we are ever to make any progress in this country. People don't need more guns to defend themselves. I'm tired of people saying that. IF you had a gun prepared for that purpose it wouldn't be safely put away which is where we get these little babies getting into daddies guns and shooting themselves or their friends. Guns are a problem. one of many problems in this country.

    Re: Stacibee – youre the one short on brain cells you dumb bitch. What she says is articulate and considered. And spot on. having guns doesnt protect you from crazies out to massacre people. It never has done.

    Re: shaygirl1309 – No we are not, not as long as I have a gun. When my late husband died I sold almost all his guns (needed the money and he had some nice collectors items) but kept one pistol for protection. My neighborhood is pretty safe and my building is a security building but there are some gang problems in other parts of town.

    So let me get this straight: she is in one of the top-earning, over-the-top movies depicting GRATUITOUS GUN VIOLENCE, and she is going to lecture and pontificate on how awful Americans are to have this in their culture. It's okay for her to earn MILLIONS OF DOLLARS making a violent movie, and it's not ok for us to have guns.
    HYPOCRITE.

    Re: sevgi – Then stay you prissy ass in Europe. People in the USA like our guns and know how to use them. What we need is to get the crazy people that steal guns off the street. Also to be able to vote for the right people to keep our country from turning into Europe which is broker than we are.

    Re: mama – Isolated event, you moron. Whilst it being a horrifying tragedy, things like that just don't happen on a regular basis. Whereas in the States they do…
