Last week, Jeffrey Johnson, wearing a business suit, opened fire at the Empire State Building, killing his former boss, Steve Ercolino, for relieving him of his job. Police opened fire and it result in nine civilians being shot as well, as they killed Johnson.

Several weeks ago, gunman James Holmes, also facing unemployment and being kicked out of university, opened fire in a packed movie theatre, during a midnight showing of the film "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises." A few weeks ago, Wade Michael Page, a deranged gunman with poor job prospects, opened fire at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin killing several people. The Judiciary Report warned in 2010 such things would happen (Ben Bernake Didn'tSee The Financial Crisis Coming).

The terrible state of the U.S. economy, coupled with pro-gun laws, has made a terrible societal impact this year, as mass shootings have claimed the lives of innocent people. The collapse of the U.S. economy, its ongoing deterioration and the administration's inability to fix it, is having a widespread effect in many ways people never imagined would happen.
