    Body Count of tyranical Governments in the last century up to today: 262,000,000 approximately vs body count of mass shootings in the last century up to today: 414 approximately! I never want to see people murdered by mass shooters or governments and although it is more likely a mass shooting will happen over a tyranical government actually carrying out murders publicly, (they are doing it by the way by police against unarmed citizen which is still even higher than mass shootings) it is still an absolute fact our government even today in the USA kills more people than mass shooters, so make your choices with facts not ideology and ignorance!

                  Oooo please the military hire and train kids to use drones to kill "ppl". Video games are the only outlet some kids have to take out their personal issues. Game on.

                              what causes mass shootings are media outlets like this one, giving the killers the spotlight which creates copycats.

                                    The Dayton shooter was an ardent leftist. Of course mass shooters don't have diagnosed mental illnesses or else they'd be in therapy, not killing people; more seriously, they are less likely to have coping strategies or to be actively working through the problems.

                                    This is all pinned by the fact that black people commit the most mass shootings in america daily, but since they're in gangs and we've come to expect it, nobody cares. The el paso shooter told potential shooters to target gun free zones because they are soft targets; you will not be able to legislate away evil, so you need to make sure you are a hard target by arming yourself.

                                    And what's the point of that last statement Mr. Noah? I assume it is to encourage gun control, but which ones would have stopped any of the shootings in recent years? Do guns go off by themselves? Will criminals and mass shooters obtain their guns legally? We should be trying to decrease violence, not specifically violence with certain weapons, especially since infringing on peoples' rights doesn't actually decrease overall violence.

                                        I’ve played violent video games since I got my first Xbox one gaming console, but I would never get up one day and decide to pick up a gun and murder innocent people

                                          What causes insanity? What "causes" any irrational behavior? The trick is to avoid such impossible questions, and ask "What best thwarts acts of violence?" For one thing, enabling and expediting the ease by which insane and hate-filled persons can obtain lethal weapons obviously is NOT working, ergo, perhaps we should try the opposite?

                                            Trevor Noah seems to think that not having a medically recorded history of mental illness is the same as not having mental illness at all. he may as well be justifying his politicization of tragedy.

                                              Even surviving shooters that are assessed after the fact often show no signs of mental illness.

                                            maybe , because it"s a military warmonger nation... if you see a problem ..you invade and shoot it.

                                              Everyone is going about solving the problem the wrong way. I can tell you what is happening with these mass shootings but will you believe it? Do you remember Guyana and Jim Jones who brainwashed his followers to drink the Kool Aid laced with poison. 909 people, a third of them children were killed in this massacre and Jim Jones said he did it al in the name of the Communist party. Do you Remember when 38 people died in the Heaven's Gate mass killing. All these people were brainwashed to kill themselves. If you look up Brainwashed to kill here on YouTube you will find a video explaining how clinical hypnosis can be used to program anyone to go out and kill others. Brainwashing does exist and has been used by intelligence agencies for years. With illicit drugs or Pharmaceuticals they can be more susceptible hypnosis and can be put under to murder people. So what they are doing is abducting programming people who have been diagnosed with mental issues and using their mental condition as a cover to blame mental illness as to what is causing the problem in the mass killings so they can say we have to get rid of the semi automatic rifles thus making America a soft target for foreign intervention. There are many videos of Holocaust survivors warning do not give up your guns. History continues to repeat itself..!

                                                      Oh, I think that Trevor Noah brings up very good points and points out our own stupidity from both sides of the political spectrum. He doesn't talk about the other mass shootings I imagine because it wasn't as big as El Paso or Dayton and the city news or state news cover it. Comedy Central at heart is a comedy show that talks about current events and makes people laugh at it. Don't you think the Right/Republicans would want to have their own Trevor Noah so they can make the left look dumb? The guy can make upset people like me giggle.

                                                    Well I'll throw my opinion at the wall and say that clearly the internet is not to blame, people will always find a way to communicate with others. And the one sentence that I tell my father who still solidly thinks I'll be a serial killer in a few years is that, there is a massive mental difference between shooting some people in a videogame knowing that the only pain is some butthurt and anger, and shooting a animal or human; erasing them existence and in my atheist opinion completely stopping them from doing anything ever again. Videogames don't make reality and fantasy bleed into each other except in the most insane people.

                                                        This is such BS, no one would have dared to blame Obama for all the mass shootings during his 8 years as president. Take away guns & people will still kill each other. How do we change humans to have a burning desire to honor & respect others. Once we find that, murder will go down.

The impact of such a memorial might move us as a country to reasonable action.

Also many kids now are bullied and taught that fighting back makes them just as bad. All that bottled up rage is dangerous. We had semi automatic weapons in the past why are these shootings starting to pop up all the sudden in the past few decades? Guns aren’t the issue it’s mental health and drugs

Just don't fuckin talk about it if you can't be respectful. I have NO RESPECT for this ASSHOLE. Because he has no respect for the victims any their families. And you FANS should be ashamed of yourselfs for not calling him out on his bullshit.

Let's study the effectiveness of these 2: has the availability of guns enabled people to protect themselves during the mass shootings? Obviously No. Have the guns enables the mass shootings? Obviously yes -> simple, the theory that guns enables people to protect themselves has been proven wrong. It is time to change the law and ban guns.

Change gun laws, take guns All together and it'll still Happen. Blaming video games is so 1990s lol, Ppl who want to do harm, will do harm. Period. There are crazy ppl out there... Nothing we can do about It. Just be vigilant and protect yourselves

Also, I played tons of video games in my lifetime and never felt the urge of hurting anyone, if anything I blew off some steam and ended too tired to do anything else. This is common sense people!!!!

But if we start putting gun laws in place then the only people your gonna end up disarming are the ones that follow the laws. People who don't can always get their guns from the black market. If my opinion ain't welcome here, well... Just something that was on my mind.
