    the ones most likely to go on to killing people.
    I believe myself all this violence in America comes from feeling that one is not as powerful or important as one feels he/she should be, especially when comparing themselves to others they know who are successful in life. Mass media and ridiculous video games feed and inflame this feeling of inadequacy.  So buying a gun, or a fancy pick-up truck, or expensive boots, are attempts to "prove" one's importance to the world.
    Personally it seems to me most Americans suffer from feelings of inadequacy.
