    Do we know at this point that he obtained it legally? He had had run ins with the Sheriff in the past. If he did obtain it legally then yes. And so should have at least half of the rest of the rational, non-druggie, sane crowd that was there that day so that someone could have dropped him after the first shot.

    Opening fire in a crowded supermarket car park is the rational non-druggie sane option? The people who took him down didn't need a gun to do it.

    He killed six people before they stopped him.

    There is no such thing as "high capacity magazines" it's a myth created by the gun lobby.... "full capacity" or "standard capacity" is more accurate.

    Here is my complete quote ~ "Only if we wish to address the problem of mass killings by citizens with guns in this country. No other country has such a problem. Are we incapable of solving, or at least reducing it? "

    I was clearly talking about mass killings by citizens with guns. I further state that no other country (singular) has such a problem. If you have evidence to present that shows another country has more mass killings by citizens with guns then the US, please present it.
    Your comprehension is just so out there. No clue.

    OK, you have a good one.

    I never said there were none when the high capacity magazines were banned. Have you seen the statements by the police that less people would have been shot before he was disarmed had the shooter been using a standard size magazine?

    Yeah, they just had to wait for his gun to jam or to run out of bullets in a clip.

    Unfortunately they had to wait until he had fired off thirty plus one-in-the-gun rounds because of the high capacity magazine he used. Why does America allow such things?
