    Considering the guy shot one person then drove down the highway between different targets (which the OP outlines) it would be difficult for someone with a gun to retaliate.

    He didn't just park his car and open fire until he was stopped. The motive is not clear at this point, but this was not a traditional mass murder (it doesn't even qualify because only one person was killed).
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.

    its from Reuters..

    When will these terror attacks by common Americans stop?
    This terror inflicted from another fellow American mass murderer from North Carolina could have not been committed with legal guns if fMRI background checks were put in place. Such background checks would see the readiness of the one to commit this atrocity from this villain and would not have issued a license for a firearm to him.

    He could have resorted to the black market to get guns but that then is illegal. There are odds that he might have been arrested while trying to buy guns illegally. Then none of this would have happened.

    These attacks, like most crime in the United States, will stop once the people of the United States begin demanding that we once again start punishing criminals; incarcerating the ones who deserve it and executing the ones who have no chance to ever live within societies rules; and return to a society that puts its mentally incompetent members into the institutions that can deal with them. Until we stop believing that criminals and the mentally ill can be a part of the general society without restraint, these things will continue to occur. If not with a gun, with a knife (Google - Jessica Short, Middletown, CT), a bat, a bomb, etc....

    Elaborate which links do you need in more common English please. In my statement there are assumptions and statements based on research. Which part do you want links for?

    How would background checks have stopped this shooting? Thanks in advance!

    More favorites...people using dead bodies to push an agenda. In this instance we have the happy circumstance of two such quality individuals. The OP for using this tragic incident as an excuse for incidents of real terrorism committed by the Islamists he is ever and always excusing and justifying and also a real class act using this incident to attack gun owners.

    Go you!

    I read and quoted exactly what you wrote. I quoted no link because you didn't reference one. Since you offered to use common English phrases, try rewording this little gem in a grammatically correct form: "could have not been committed with legal guns". I assumed you mean "could not have been committed with legal guns," but perhaps I'm interpreting what you wrote incorrectly.

    If someone passes a law and puts a procedure in place, you cannot, or anyone else cannot, assume that something bad can't happen. That is naive and the province of fairy dust.

    You reference that the shooter could have used the black market to get the guns and that there are odds he might have been arrested while buying them. Yes, there are odds. Would you say that they are even money odds or something closer to a billion to 1?

I think it is obvious why I respect police despite some of their less respectable members and actions, and really don't care about the wannabe heroes who think having a gun makes them Wyatt Earp.
    Looks like the sheriff wasn't quick enough either. Next.
