    Then how does one deal with guns purchased by gangs.

    Unfortunately gang banger's are not the best shots. It's the people caught in the middle that receive the worst from these idiots.

    true but it is compounded when those who have an agenda use the massacre to strip the rights of people who had no blame in the killing(s)

    And anyone stopping one is heroic. Which gets the most media attention? Hmm...

    I would rather deal with the gang members than "deal with guns" they purchased (almost always ILLEGALLY)

    You don't. You attack the root of the problem...

    Instead of getting a task force together to register and/or ban assault weapons. Why don't they put together a task force to study the root cause of gang violence and how to address it in minority neighborhoods. Or is that much to complicated?

    Gang violence is a issue.mental illness is a issue. Every issue has to be considered, including that of guns.

    You arrest the gang members, ALL of them, as co-conspirators in any gang crime - many are felons, so ANY gun is their second (at least) felony. You enact and use three strikes laws to keep them off of the streets permanently. You prosecute all that harbor them or do not "snitch". You make the gangs fear the law, not the other way around. You make the public support the law. You legalize drugs, cutting off their primary income source. In case you have not yet figured it out, guns do not commit crime - they are only tools.

    That's like saying that the wrench is responsible for skinned knuckles when working on an engine....Blaming the tool is just plain silly.

    every possible harm one can do with guns is already banned

    it is already illegal for anyone likely to misuse a gun to possess one

    all we see right now are people whose agenda is disarming law abiding citizens using crime as an excuse to disarm others

    and on this board-almost every single one of those with that agenda label or prove themselves to be far left
