    It's not gun control laws that are the problem, it's once again the system being either 'overburdened' or simply bureaucrats and state employees not doing their job. But for all the Cho's how many handgun applications are turned down? Does anyone ever want to view the flip side? I bet if you searched hard enough, called the Bureau of Justice Stats, or called a local Agency you could find something pertaining to the number of handgun requests that are turned down. These rare and tragic incidents should not be used to vilify the other millions of gun owners that follow the law.
    So you prefer to ignore this part of the findings by the panel after the VT shootings ~ "The panel also criticized misinterpretations of privacy laws and gaps in Virginia's mental health system and gun laws."

    If the bureaucrats had him contained him like they were supposed to...he would have never been able to buy the gun.

    It's not the gun that kills, but the nutjob using it.


    P.S. There are more vehicle related deaths per year than gun related deaths. Let's start by regulating that before we move on to guns.

    Hence the need for more thorough background checks.

    So you advocate more stringent traffic regulations to stem the tide of shooting sprees?

    Yes that's exactly what I mean! I'm glad you caught that! I was afraid I had hidden the message in such a bluntly obvious way that your sharp mind would miss it!

    Now, if we can go back to Acting like Semi-Adult land, I was referring to the fact that if we want to get all in a tissy over something that kills people, why don't we focus on morons driving. Two years ago in fayetteville some stupid teenager managed to bounce a PT Cruiser into the 2nd story of a house. Not because there was an angle or a ramp, but because he was being a dick and driving too fast and literally launched it coming off a turn.

    Moral of the story: His friend died, and he lived. What do you think the moral of the story is?

    And that's just 1 of the umpteen stories I've heard almost on a monthly basis about either an inexperienced kid getting in a wreck here or dumbass talking on a cell phone there...

    Why don't we pass some legislation we can all agree on and make the most used thing in this nation (the Automobile) safer before we go off on self righteous witch hunts to disarm the law abiding populace because a narrow 1% likes to go ape****.

    Not sure how this addresses the Fort Hood shooting spree. And how would requiring a more thorough background check disarm a law abiding populace?

    If you can't follow along with me, I won't discuss with you because then I'm just going to be talking to myself and getting off topic.

    Yes traffic fatalities are definitely off topic.
