    Kind of like TD is? Just saying.

    That is just totally untrue. MOST of these types of mass shootings are most certainly planned. A lot of times for weeks if not months in advance. We know this because a lot of times we have evidence such as notes or computer records of such plans, as well as farewell notes, lists of victims, etc.

Luckily he doesn't hit anyone. Still, idiot. Go the gun legally, but he would never even try black market. Not in him. Many idiots are that way. Again, one extra step limits.
    So then you want to treat EVERYONE like an idiot because you know a few? That is not logical.

    I don't think so. If you have anything present it. I'll do a search once I get to my computer. Some are planned, but not most.

    Nope. I just accept what I see as a reasonable regulation (because f both idiots and the not ally ill). I do not support a complete response ban, which no n has proposed.

    Mass killings often planned, not spontaneous, experts say - latimes.com

    The motive behind the Connecticut elementary school rampage is not known, but behavioral specialists with expertise on mass killings note that such events typically do not occur spontaneously, that the perpetrator has harbored both resentments and fantasies of how he would carry out his objective.

    The perpetrators often say things or exhibit behavior that, in hindsight, foreshadow their rampages.

    After the fact, “it never ends up being a surprise,” said Dr. C. Andrew Morgan, a Yale University psychiatrist and behavioral advisor to the U.S. armed services.
