Possibly mental health problems that were hidden, possibly that simply developed after the person first got the gun. Honestly, I don't even know if the person had the gun legally or not.
    Until you decide that protecting people is more important than protecting guns you are going to get lethal incidents like this one and such incidents are far from isolated

    Banning guns will just ensure the bad guys have the guns.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The bad guys had to have gotten their guns from the good guys in the first place. You are blaming the symptoms for the problem

    This really messes with the whole terror narrative.

    Look out for Fanatic Radical Western anti-Muslim terrorists America.
    Someone has to put a stop to these rabid, ultra-leftwing progressive atheist terrorists, don't you agree? So much hate, so much hate. Apparently he was a big Rachel Maddow fan, which figures because all she spews is hate.

    Most gun incidents happen due to illegally owned weapons, not people who legally obtained them. And every country has "lethal incidents". They happen. It is better that everyone be able to defend themselves from other people and their government (and possibly other threats) than to worry about "lethal incidents" which in the grand scheme of things, are not that common.

    Someone totally doesn't understand reality. Even if you did a world wide sweep banning all guns, everywhere... there would still be guns. Because such a move would be impossible. You really don't care about needless deaths though, if you did, you would support arming more people, because bad guys rarely attack areas where the locals will shoot back.

    The only sensible solution is to have a law passed making it mandatory that every single American over age 11 is armed everywhere at all times. If every American had a firearm with them 24/7, there would be zero crime.

    Can we get more ludicrous? Seriously?

    Let's examine the evidence, name off the 5 biggest crime ridden cities, 5 biggest shooting spree locations.

    What do they all have in common?

    They ban guns.

    When evidence of failure isn't enough to persuade you, why do you people double down on fail?

    How ironic having a firearms advocate from across the pond lecturing me on needless death !

    I live in Chicago and am quite aware of the gun violence here. Yes I was being sarcastic. I'm on the fence with the gun laws, On one hand I feel the red tape here to buy a gun is BS however when a majority of the firearms used in the crimes here were bought legally by those with clean records and then sold to gang members knowing full well they're criminals and are going to use those guns to kill people, I can't get behind ease of purchase. What's the solution? I don't know, but the guns that CPD are confiscating off of the street are mostly legally purchased across state lines. So **** it, let's just make it so that every citizen has to have a gun on them at all times. Criminals would think twice about crime if everyone was armed.
