He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    BS. I had several high-capacity magazines during the "assault weapons ban". I bought several more, legally. You don't know that the "AWB" was little more than a feel-good showboat law that didn't actually "ban" much of anything.

    Do you understand that:

    "I do not want..."

    applies only to me? I didn't say "Nobody should watch it....."

    I said help "us" understand on the assumption there would be a discussion around his stated or implied motive.

    So let's say for some reason that was the case he could only find ten round clips. He could have attached two rifles together giving him in essence a twenty round clip with double the firepower. You then would have said we need laws restricting how many guns could be bought.

    This is a tragic mass murder but too many people are paralyzed by emotion and fail to realize the only law that could have prevented his attack is a law saying everyone lives inside their own rock surviving on an IV and imagination. A real life stone cold IPod.

    I understand people want to prevent this from happening again but proposing new gun laws is only delaying effective discovery of causation giving us a guide on prevention.

    You are judged by the plain meaning of your words on when you post....


    ...not your secret intent.

    So when I said "I do not want to watch...." I should have used clear meaning words? Are you saying I should have been more clear and said:

    "I do not want to watch....."
