    LOL! It was a CONSERVATIVE government which acted in Australia - to bi-partisan and public support. We don't need no guns!

    I wish it was only conspiracy theories Simon, but I lived the reality of dealing with the research community, state and federal health depts and politicians from both sides. The post-modernist belief system is firmly established, the media just makes it seem normal.

    I have no idea what you’re trying to say with that last sentence, Ian, but I have also spent a career dealing with state health departments and politicians. With a few rare exceptions, they are by and large a bunch of oxygen thieving, politically correct, self interested navel gazers.

    Postmodern philosophy has strong relations with the substantial literature of critical theory.

    In sociology and political philosophy, the term "Critical Theory" describes the Western Marxist philosophy of the Frankfurt School, which was developed in Germany in the 1930s.

    An Italian bloke, Antonio Gramsci, realising that the working classes were too well off to start a revolution, came up with the idea of "the long march through the institutions" whereby Marxists took gradual control of education, public services and the media.

    Our world today is the end result - just watch any episode of 4 corners or Q&A.

    It might come as a huge surprise to everyone to hear that I didn't know the answer to any of those questions.

    Rubbish. Even you're not that stupid.

    Well this is America. It could have been worse. We aren't you. We have a bill of rights with 2A. Guns are part of the american fabric. So we have to deal with it. I like it the way it is regardless of the mass shootings of a minority of americans vs the mass death killed by our healthcare system 250k/year. That's where the real crime is.

    Here again is how you stop mass shooters. Armed off duty fireman pulled his weapon and stopped this guy today...

    It supports the idea that many of us believe...the best way to deal with mass shootings is to shoot back. Some are predators and some are prey.

    But nobody shot in that article. The fireman saved everyone from nothing.

    Sounds like the kid was pulling a stunt, and didn't shoot, or threaten anyone. And may not have broken any laws. Open carry is legal in Missouri.

    The fireman could technically be charged with Felony threatening.

    Exactly. I'm becoming concerned that there is a #metoo movement forming with these mass shootings. "Watch me get famous"

    What always amuses me about these claims is WHERE WERE ALL THE CONSERVATIVE students/ teachers whilc this was going on? You forget in the era you are talking about it was mostly only conservative, middle class or better people who could afford higher education.IF there is a bias in education it's because hard right folk just can't be asked to take on a fixed-earning career such as teaching.
    BTW do you ever notice the audience coosition figures posted at the bottom of the screen for QnA - nearly always majority LNP.
