    snce Newton -- especially the same model that tore apart 20 children in that school. I don't think any more laws, mental health facilities, background checks, neighborhood watch groups, or training programs will have much effect on the fact that most Americans crave power and status, with their overpowered vehicles, oversized homes, overpriced apparel, and/or high killrate guns. No matter what their income is, Americans want more. We're a fat nation of people who expect or exert privilege, lost in a sea of materialism, blindly seeking maximum power to "prove" we're better.
    And this is reflected in our foreign policy.
