    You have to think about it, the more people that have guns the better the odds a mental case will use them to kill innocents.
    We can include mental heath care in all insurance plans but in the end we can't read minds.
    There are lots of mentals out there and too many of them own guns.
    So again I get back to the only way proven to stop this and thats to take away some of the guns capable of mass killing.

    Would you not give up that toy to save someones life?
    Really they are boring anyway, yeah go out from time to time and shoot a box of ammo but each time the thrill is less then it was previously.
    Guns are like that hot woman you can't get enough of, then you get married and a few years later she's not so hot anymore.
    Am I right or what?
    So its up to you guys to do something about it.

    If you have to pack your pistol to go to worship Jesus then you might as well stay home, don't you think?

    These Truckers are right gun laws don't work.

    I'm thinking that like a bartender serving a minor who gets in the car and kills someone, the law comes down on the bartender.
    So a person whose not really altogether up stairs goes to the store and buys a gun, then hurts someone.
    Who's fault is it?
    The mental case is not really fully aware of actions and consequences, almost like a minor, they need to be protected.
    The seller then comes to mind as having some responsibility.
    It's wide open for attorneys

    Nope.
    What would a sissy know about firearms or why men have them.
    About time for your lgbt snowflake empowerment meeting isn't it?

    You think having a big bad gun makes you and Devin a couple of big tough men.

    It doesn't.

    You just own a piece of metal that can kill hundreds of people quickly.

    So before you rent a room in a Las Vegas hotel, stop and think about what happened to you when you were young that makes you feel this way.

    And get some help. It won't make you a "sissy".

    Just my opinion... If we have tougher laws on illegal guns and we enforce them we can get the guns away from the bad guys which will decrease people feeling the need to buy them legally. Even in this case this jerk off coward was not supposed to be able to buy a gun. Someone screwed up and that someone should be held accountable. But I shouldn’t lose my right to own a gun because that person screwed up.

    Nobody is suggesting you shouldn't own a gun (well, maybe some people are, I don't know). Just that there should be limits regarding military grade weaponry in the hands of civilians.

    If this guy had a hunting rifle, or a handgun, personally I'd chalk it up to a bad person doing a bad thing.

    But when that bad person can easily get his hands on a weapon that can kill hundreds of people in minutes, I tend to think that it's not a good situation.

    No
    but follow this
    drugs robbery , rape and murder are all against the law
    as is misusing a fire arm

    more laws against drugs, rape and murder will not dissuade the junkie, rapist or murder
    as will not more laws concerning guns for those that will misuse guns

    Chicago has the strictest gun laws in America yet these are the number of people shot each and every week

    Good points, but follow this;

    Criminals break laws. Non-criminals don't.

    The last two major mass shooters obtained their guns legally. Had there been laws against purchasing military grade weapons, it stands to reason these two individuals would not have done so.

    And hundreds of people would still be alive.

    I agree with some guns being to much, ive said it before I have a glock with two clips which gives me 32 shots to protect my home and family and don’t see the need for more than that.

    The Texas shooter did not obtain his weapon legally. He lied on his background check which is a crime in its self, had the government done its job or the shooter told the truth those people wouldn't have died.

    I prefer a shotgun for home defense......don't want bullets going through the walls and risk hitting someone else by accident.
