    You're wrong about that but don't let facts get in the way of your rant.

    There are all kinds of reasons to be rejected by the military. Gay, couldn't pass pt tests in basic, injury/medical reasons and so on. Someone being frightened of you is no reason to deny you your 2nd amendment rights.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Should he have been able to buy a car? Get a drivers license? Rent an apartment? Buy spraypaint?

    Shame on that evil college for not filing a notification with the state that their student was mentally ill. Maybe they could have taken out an add. Without some form of documented illness or criminal record he would have been legally authorized to buy a firearm. It would be wonderful if they ahd caught it before. maybe since the sherriff that started all the violent hate filled rhetoric had acted on what HE ADMITS they knew about him this all would have been avoided.

    I can see by your posts in this thread that I'm so wrong. Please show me where you advocate for gun ownership.

    Did I know the votes? I don't think so, but, more important did I know the thinking behind the votes. Not at all. Because, to me, it's so freaking obvious that he should never have been allowed to purchase a gun that I need someone intelligent to explain it to me why they think it is even conceivable that this deeply disturbed human being should ever have been allowed to possess a gun. It's beyond my wildest imagining.

    Personally, the “couldn't have known” rational is ridiculous. It requires a eyes-wide-shut mentality. The military recruiters figured it out. The people who went to school with him figured it out. But, society isn't allowed to figure it out. Bizarre. Somehow placing any burden whatsoever on someone seeking access to deadly force, that's asking too much!

    You're real good at trying to cover your ass.

    Looking at this exchange, it looks like you set this thread up. It's like you could wait for someone to support gun ownership.

    I'm not asking them whether he should have been able to purchase the gun, I'm asking you, all of you. Was this the kind of customer that should be given that privilege? Don't go hiding behind the 2nd Amendment, either; this isn't about your legal opinion, this is about your judgment. Should this man have been able to buy a Glock 19 pistol in your judgment?
