    Well if you had read the entire post you would have seen that it was an example of what I think is more important than gun legislation, but pick and choose as usual. You do such a good job at working my posts against me that way.

    And this applies to Fort Hood how?

    It applies to you focusing on the wrong part of my post.

    Alright, here comes my point, you ready?


    Keep a closer eye on red flags like Hasan

    AND

    Don't infringe (too far) into the rights of Law Abiding Citizenry on account of a crazy few (who should have been better watched in the first place)

    By doing what specifically? That is what I am trying to get from you.

    A more thorough background check for gun purchases while not infringing on the right of law abiding citizens would help accomplish your objective.

    Keep. Tabs. On. Red. Flags.

    at least with Hasan they had evidence to believe. Just because someone purchases a gun legitimately doesn't automatically mean they intend to do something crazy.

    also we're having this conversation in two threads, are we not?

    Of what use are "red flags", or "evidence" if they are not utilized to protect the public? They should made available for access in background checks for gun purchases.

    You are very perceptive.

    On a military base it's easier than you think. . .so, it's far more ideal to monitor your people.

    Alright then, I'll go down that road: When did he buy the guns he used in the attack? Was it before or after the "red flags"? and would they even show up if they were just "speculations"?

    Of what value is monitoring if that info is not put to use to protect the public?

    Reducing the access of guns to the mentally disturbed would help accomplish that through more thorough background checks for gun purchases. Until then people should not be surprised at the shooting sprees that occur. That was the findings after the VT shootings and I am confidant that will be the findings from the Fort Hood shootings.

    What harm do you see from more thorough background checks?

    That was the finding after the VT shootings. After the Fort Hood investigation is completed we will know if it was a factor there as well.

    Why are you so opposed to thorough background checks for gun purchases? What's the downside???
