Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

You have to have a good reason to want a gun.
Living in a dangerous area and getting shot at was denied as a reason to want a gun.
It is crazy here.
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
I see the conversation has morphed from "this guy must have been a Muslim terrorist, but the MSM will never admit it" to "we need more/fewer guns".
I'd be willing to bet, based on the few facts that we have, that the shooter was a mental case who should never have had any guns, or been allowed to walk free, that he is not a Muslim, and that neither terrorism nor gun control has a thing to do with this incident.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
For some reason you're interpreting that as "can't buy guns"
"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress & the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."
- Abraham Lincoln
Secondly, the reason the cartels set up shop in mexico was due to the fact that it's a weak and dysfunctional state. The US, for all it's problems, does not face anything near to what mexico does in this arena, and there is little to suggest similar restrictions would have such effects here (though I don't support such restrictions, anyway)
