    Noone's vote is irrelevant. I don't think anyone should have a gun, either. I think NYC's strict gun laws and background checks are the least our society should have.

    Having said that, I voted yes because I interpreted the question as under Arizona's laws, which don't exclude him from having a gun.

    "Should the AZ shooter have been able to buy a gun?"


    If what I know is true and going by the simple question you asked above the logical common sense answer is yes and its the only correct one.

    Anything else is speculation, irrelevant to your question and how its worded, and/or emotional hindsight.

    I heard they rejected him because of a failed drug test.

    'cause the logical step from being rejected from the military is going on a killing spree.

    When you can prove to me that each and every person that military recruiters have rejected went on a shooting spree, you will have a point. Until then, you have none. Try to give us at least a LITTLE challenge on this issue.

    Well, unless someone has been declared to have a mental illness, has been convicted of the misdemeanor of domestic disorder, has a criminal record of something that has more than a 1 year sentence, or has a restraining order taken out against him, he's not disqualified from owning a gun.

    So, yes. If he wasn't disqualified by any of those things, he had every right to have a gun. Same rules apply to everyone.

    Unless you are a physic how do you know whether or not you should refuse to sell someone a firearm? Nobody except for anti-2nd amendment retards will walk into a gun store, a walmart,K-mart, a pawnshop, a gun show or anywhere else that sells firearms saying they want purchase a firearm to murder someone or to kill a bunch of people.

    What do you want people who sell firearms to make customers fill out a questionnaire? Do you want gun dealers to call a physic or maybe be required to have a quack come down to the store to evaluate every customer who wants to buy a gun?
