    Meanwhile the NRA makes another speech while politicians plead sympathy and wished this hadn't happened.
    Maybe with stricter background checks it won't happen again.

    Maybe if a politician had the balls to pass a law without fear of hurting some big organizations feelings this might be prevented in the future.
    what sort of background checks would please you> water boarding? the guy had no record. he had no history of court adjudicated incompetence.

    Assault weapons are weapons of war. Why can't you own an RPG? Or a tank?

    More idiocy in that post. "assault weapons" are not weapons of war. Assault weapon is a term people who are afraid of guns use to try to scare others. Its a term made up by gun banners. It has no military usage and even the ATF firearms manual notes it is a term that has no real definition.

    BTW the bolt action rifle that serves as the basis for about half the big game hunting rifles sold worldwide-the Mauser 98-was the german (and many other nations') standard infantry weapon of WWI and WWII

    The guy had no history of buying 6000 rounds on the internet either.

    That is the very definition of a RED FLAG!!!!

    You claim to be an expert on guns. And now you just proved you're lying about that too.

    Assault rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Is anything you yammer on about real?

    Is it worth 12 innocent people's lives?
    more nonsense-this guy was planning this for MONTHS

    post up-what sort of background checks would have prevented this massacre

The big deal is that hundreds of people's lives were destroyed and there is no known motive. And frankly, there should be safeguards in place to prevent psychopaths from killing innocent people, when their actions clearly provide ample suspicion to justify action being taken. A 24 year old drops out of school, purchases three guns including a semi-automatic rifle, has all these things delivered to his apartment, then is rejected from a shooting range for sounding and acting like a maniac. That's fine? You can only buy sudafed once or twice a month, but what he did is fine.

    That's another part of why this is such a big deal. I'm sick of gun owners justifying the availability of any and all firearms. Can't we just agree that you can keep your guns and we can enact regulations that prevent them from falling into the hands of maniacs?
    I am sick of hand wringing ninnies blaming the millions of honest gun owners because someone isn't deterred by the possibility of 12 counts of capital murder. Why don't you suggest regulations that will do what you want without pissing on our rights

    And don't give me the crap that its my rights vs your safety You gun restrictionists have never come close to proving your case

    Your wiki page states "assault rifles" are "automatic", the weapon crazy dude used was semi-automatic.

    But fortunately that is not something the government has a right to keep track of.

    and most people who buy that much are serious target shooters. the instances of mass murderers buying that much ammo is infinitesimally small.
