D.C., October 2, 2015 –  “This is
our collective problem, an American problem, and we have to find a solution as
a national priority. We have seen these shootings in Columbine, New town, Virginia
Tech, Purdue, Denver, and Oak Creek and now in Oregon, what does it take to
change the mindset of these individuals who come from different cultural and religious
backgrounds?”   Mike Ghouse, President of America Together Foundation expressed his frustration with domestic terrorism.  

The shooter Chris Harper Mercer was allegedly asking the religion of the person
before shooting, we severely condemn this attitude and seek further evaluations
for sources of such attitudes and hope to find solutions.

President Barack Obama pushed for a change in gun laws when he spoke to
reporters about the shooting Thursday.

“Somehow this has become
routine. The reporting is routine. My response here at this podium ends up
being routine, the conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to
this,” he said.
The President continued:
“Our thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s not enough. It does not
capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel, and it does
nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America
— next week, or a couple months from now.”

Indeed, this should not become a routine incident, we have to seriously consider the structure of our society.  There is a possibility that the shooter is a loner. As a
society, we have to make a sincere effort to include loners in one group or the other and have them have
normal relations with others.  We might be able to mitigate some of these
heart wrenching incidents.
