No Excuse for Shooting

Can we please stop using being teased and bullied, no matter how bad, as an excuse to kill yourself or others? I can't help but wonder if there's a link between the criminalization of bullying, a culture (on the left and the right) that embraces victimhood (not to mention guns), and mass shootings.

If you are going to kill, can't you at least kill just the bullier?

Peter:
I think you definitely hity on something when you mention a culture that embraces ":victimhood".
In some communities, it's more a "rite-of'passge than anything else.
Larry Elder is always railing about "victicrats" and they way they turn the system around to "serve" them, rather than allow them the chance toopursue goals in life BY THEMSELVES.

Excellent post.

Stay safe.
