Do you feel safe in malls or any public place?

Yesterday there was another scare at a NJ. mall. A man shot himself. He scared many people. Malls and all public places clearly need better security. We also clearly need better mental health care in the US.

I've never liked public places. Too much hassle being in a crowd. The crowd influences your actions. I don't like that.
It's like being on a busy freeway and not being able to go the speed or change lanes when you want, or need to.
I don't like being confined either. I think that's pretty much the same deal as the crowd thing.... no elbow room.... trapped, etc.
Now that lunatics target public places, there's even less reason for me to go to them.

We need better mental healthcare (all healthcare, for that matter) and better, more thorough background checks for purchasing guns.
That's not banning guns, as the NRA likes to pound into its members heads. That's just not selling Norman Bates a gun.
As usual, the extremists go too far in both directions and make a debate where there shouldn't be one.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Einstein.
In other words... It's better to be able to think than to just be able to memorize.
You have to have an imagination to be able to think things through.

I agree Karven but, common sense is not very common among pseudo intellectuals.
I learned to memorize well in college but, I have common sense and can think for myself. I think you and I inherited common sense or acquired it as children.

Thanks Philosopher.
It's really just common sense.

Very well written Karven. I agree.
