Cam, I really don't appreciate you using this horrific event to take a political poke at my country.

It's not a political poke. It's an illustration of how problems aren't dealt with (anywhere). Your attempt to silence is exactly my point. This is a big problem.

The media is now doing the same thing i.e. silence in respect for the deceased.....don't question things....it's disrespectful....we need a cool down period....

I see no solution to this problem. Mental illness runs amok everywhere. It's probably impossible to fix. It's a fact we have to live with regardless of societal and freedom changes from now on.

Cam, "just another gun day in the u.s. of a." and your references to Saudi women are not even credible ways to start yet another divisive debate.

If you want to honestly talk about causes of violence, or mass shootings or gun rights, fine. Just don't expect anyone to take you seriously when your opening salvo is so utterly lacking in compassion and context.

I think we need gun reform in my country. And I am horrified and, yes, surprised by today's events. Your only references thus far are pretty blatantly anti-American. I want to heal and make things better. Your incessant penchant for bashing America is tired, and counterproductive to civil and respectful discourse.

Thank you for handling that with your typical restraint, Tom. I could not have done the same in this case.

This could bring a whole new meaning to the phrase "piss on you"
