    Perhaps all places of business need super-powerful high-gauss electro-magnets in the ceilig that will rip the gun out of the man's hand if he starts something.

    Or maybe a hidden sequence of trap doors in the floor.

    What about foaming the guy with quick-dry cement?

    How about realizing that not everything can be prevented and sometimes nothing can be done to avert tragedy? People ARE going to put themselves in places where being armed isn't appropriate. Gyms are one of those places. Beach volleyball is another.

    And, since it's morally wrong to disarm the entire country, there are going to be cases where depressed people will resort to mass murder as an "exit strategy".

    A man drove his Cadillac into a daycare center playground once, killing kids.

    Do we ban cars?

    Do we require that all daycare facilities become hardened protected sites able to fend off angry luxury car drivers?

    What?

    Not a whole heck of a lot that can be done reasonably.

    This incident with yesterday.

    The guy needed to get laid.

    Legalize prostitution and maybe that could have prevented this.

    I'm an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment in it's most generous possible interpretation, don't get me wrong, but you have to focus on the key issue here. Thirty million single women ignored this guy. It must be their fault. His problem was lack of a wife. Clearly if the Messiah had re-instituted arranged marriages, this guy would have been satisfied and lives would have been saved.
    As much as I dislike apdst's opinions, at least they're (for the most part) relevant to this thread. You're really reaching with that attack on Obama. Kinda funny how both you and the killer have a dislike for Obama's administration.

    A door? If you are firing hollowpoints, it won't matter because the round will fragment inside his body.

I can tell you that, if the health club had been here in Houston, there is a good chance that the death toll would not have been so high, and that the shooter would have become a statistic much earlier. Here, on any given day, you will find a number of guns inside the locker rooms, and all legal, waiting to deal out death to people who would make some kind of a statement that they are fed up with their own crappy lives by taking the lives of others.
