    Gun control is a dead issue... After Sandy Hook it was determined that it was alright to shoot small children with a gun.
    So it will continue shooting after shooting. Even the Supreme court agrees. God forbid if we lost the right to shoot people.

    As a side note if you own stock in a gun company you made some money today. The proud sponsors of the NRA

    Convenience and effectiveness is the reason that “assault-style” weapons are used. But as I pointed out above, I do not believe Europe is any better off dealing with mass bombings.

    A couple shotguns with magazine extenders and #4 buckshot in a crowded area is likely capable of a tremendous amount of death… Well-placed bombs, even more…

    I believe there used to be tutorials on how to make mustard gas online as well….

    I feel we should be addressing the “who’s” and “why’s,” cause the “how’s” can be changed…

    I’m sure someone here can recommend a good neurosurgeon or psychiatrist to help with your derangement over firearms and the NRA and those that own them. In the meantime, you might pursue conversations on a venue less gun-friendly than a hunting forum....maybe the PETA chat page or such?

    We don’t outlaw corvettes because they might be driven too fast or dangerously.....and they aren’t even an enumerated right. Firearms are a right, and had no more to do with this tragedy from causative logic, than a gas pedal is at fault for speeding.

    It takes a slimy little weasel to jump on a soapbox for some attention when people are dead and dying. Don't bother with your witty retort, you're on my ignore list.

    Thank you... For adding exactly ZERO contribution to this thread.

    Looking at global events currently, we are certainly not the only country facing mass destruction/murder....

    I am sure that in all of the cases of mass shootings that it was the guns that made them do it... The NRA has probably fitted random guns with mind-control devices.

    It's interesting to note that their was an Assault Weapons Ban on when mental nut jobs Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold shot up Columbine in 1999. The 1994 ban outlawed "Assault Weapons" and limited magazine capacity to 10 for ten years.

    To me it just sounds like an incredibly frustrated citizen who's upset about the worst mass shooting in US history.

    I imagine that more than a few folks are wondering today, why on Earth any citizen needs a fully automatic weapon.
