    Wanna bet he also got his gun legally, due to the NRA refusal to join reality and support rational gun restrictions like universal background checks.

    Just wondering if any of our rootin'-tootin' Texans were able to pull out their pistol and stop the guy?

    Please list the specific NRA policies.

    Yes, it will be instructive to find out where they acquired the guns they used.

    This is why they should teach shooting and gun control in high school. At least then if you're gonna shoot someone, you hit your target.

    Did I miss where it was posted/reported that the weapon used was unregistered?

    Once the facts are in, perhaps then the anti-gun folks can show where any of their proposed solutions would do jack to have prevented this.

    Although the following example doesn't specifically discuss firearms it does give some insight as to why blanket registration is undesirable -
    Police misuse database: Number of officers accused of misusing state driver database skyrockets - OrlandoSentinel.com

    Whenever you have these databases set up they can be, and often are, abused. There were at least 2 break ins in Rockland County of houses listed by that newspaper as the residence of registered gun owners. We can't say for sure that the thieves used the list but it was one of the principle concerns when that map got published. The above example shows abuse of a comparable list by police officials and I can pretty much guarantee you that if a gun owners database was established that it too would be abused and possibly compromised by a group like Wikileaks.

    In case you haven't noticed there is a HUGE amount of animosity toward lawful gun owners right now. No small amount of that hyperventilation is coming from elected officials and there is NO WAY that in this climate or in the next surge that we, as lawful citizens, can count on the government protecting our right to privacy. Hell, it's not too far fetched to figure that some "vigilante" with access to the database would expose it as a "public service".
