    In reading his "manifesto," that seems to be a big part of it. He was hugely jealous of men who could fuck women easily when he wasn't able to fuck "pretty blondes."

    Yes, that was the impression I got from my brief read. Although even his shortish video demonstrates it.

    He's got a lot of magical thinking going on (the lottery stuff). And he was hugely obsessed with social status. Apparently he killed his roommates not because they were fucking beautiful women, but because they were nerds who didn't even have the decency to try to climb the social ladder. I think he hated everyone, not just women, but he certainly thought of women as chattel that he was not being allowed access to.

    Edit: actually he killed his roommates to secure his apartment as a torture chamber for phase 1 of his plan, but he had also previously complained about them being nerds who didn't even care enough about social status to be ashamed of being nerds. And also Asian- he was a huge racist too, which is doubly sad since he was half Asian himself.

    You're assuming his roommates were more "successful".
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Its what he said, and most likely what he thought, but the comparison of this guy's feelings to an ordinary perosn's jealousy is innaccurate, because he obviously was a sociopath, not influenced by normal standards of rivalry between males.

    Making something illegal or strict won't stop it. If gun violence does go down, another form of violence will go up. This has been pointed out earlier and in other threads. There will always be violence, and if one way of preforming it is removed, another will emerge. The issues with guns in the US is not a problem of guns, but a problem of culture. That can't be easily changed (if at all).

    I do support the notion of reexamining gun laws, and if it can be done properly, to recalibrate how things are done. On a personal level I want there to be much stricter laws, but I am doubtful they'd actually do what its intended to do. In reality though, it's not that important. As I said earlier, gun violence seems to be far worse of a problem than it actually is due to media microscope attention. There's much more pressing issues in the world at the moment. I'm quite sick of all of the gun stores in the news (from either side of the aisle) personally.
    Yeah, pretty much.

    California already has the strictest gun laws overall in the US. It really got started with Roberti-Roos in 1989, and since then there have been more gun control laws passed than you could shake a stick at. The crime statistics for the last 25 years do not show a corresponding pattern of improvement. IIRC, the level of gun crime in California is similar to that of Texas.

    the only way you're going to even begin to attempt to control gun violence is to stop the production of them for sale to the public, perhaps the military even. but that's never going to happen.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Well success is debatable in its definition, but I see your point. Might have to engage in some magical thinking of my own and suggest that maybe he thought they didn't deserve to live because they weren't making an attempt to better themselves when he had been through the turmoil he perceived in his life.

    Well yes, after reading through his record a bit more I actually realised the extent of both his ostracised position as he saw it and more so the sheer delusion that eventually consumed him.

    Ok, yeah you're right. I had misread it as "3 additional."
