    apparently with a 223 rifle which the press erroneously called an "assault rifle". CT btw bans such weapons even though a major maker of such rifles is Colt in Hartford CT. I doubt any of the victims were armed

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    In many states people can carry concealed weapons. most of these mass shootings take place in areas where people cannot

    at least he saved the taxpayers a couple million in prosecuting him. The only way to stop someone who plans on killing others and himself is to kill him as fast as possible.

    I think it would be really appalling and disgusting for any of us to attempt to use this tragedy to make political hay on a gun agenda, whether that agenda is pro or anti-gun.

    he's not making political hay; simply stating a fact. Mass shooting occur in places where people are least likely to be armed.

    Sad thing to read about. My thoughts will be with those harmed and their families.
