Can any gun law legislate evil?

What is the common denominator of mass shooters such as the Uvalde , Highland Park, et al perpetrators?

Didn't they broadcast their intentions (the evil in their heart) to the entire world through social media outlets such as FB, Twitter, Snap Chat, etc.?

How is it that these type outlets are lightning fast to suppress and block conservative viewpoints yet seemingly ignore monsters such as these mass shooters and not to mention despots like the Ayatollah of Iran routinely calling for the destruction of the USA and Israel?

Are they accomplices to these monsters?

1. Can any gun law legislate evil?

1. Depends...

2. I read recently that upwards of 97+% of mass shooters over the past 15-20 years have been on mental meds of one sort or another.

3. Yes, the various media who are quick to delete or block those of us who "speak the truth", etc, but leave the wackos alone until they've done something and then they delete the account so nobody can do any searches on what's been allowed, are as complicit as can be.

Also, IMO, many national and State politicians, law enforcement, and many city or county officials, along with school officials, are also complicit, just as they were down in Parkland, FL, and other locations.

I don't do any social media. I don't twitter. I don't Facebook(I used to, but my life got better when I deactivated it about 4 years ago). I have never taken a selfie. Not one.

I watch the news. Not just FOX, but I watch them all,including MSNBC. I don't live in an echo chamber, but I don't give into stupidity just because Rachel Maddow says so. If you don't hear both sides, you can't figure out the truth for yourself. (in the vein of full disclosure, I do watch Rachel knowing she is a idiot)

The problem is that many of our youth get their news from Facebook. Very sad.

If you chek to see how many of these killers have been on meds as childern in school to "control behaviours" coupled with bad parenting I think it is a starting for a real discussion? Look at ALL the malcontents and misfits idiots. They are in some form on mental illness.. Fat, Green hair, nose rings/ tats ect.... ZERO / no self asteem..

You are doing it now?
I mean in terms of social networking to the point that I am documenting everything. This is the only website I go to, other than amazon,craigslist and ebay.

I am not planning my life around Facebook, I go days at a time and not use my phone for anything other than the weather app on it or to check my e-mail.

I am, more or less, unplugged from the mass hysteria. I am able to see what is going on with more clarity because I am not distracted by the noise. If I don't view a story as having any relevance, I don't pay any more attention to it.

I am pretty happy doing it this way, I am enjoying my life. Instead of talking about it online, I am squeezing in as much mischief as I can before the dirt nap.

Isn't it easier to ban guns then to have to deal w/"these" people? Just being the "Devils Advocate" on this as you all know I am a staunch 2A supporter (God bless the NRA)!
OT: The IL Gov. just echoed that the Founding Fathers would NOT agree w/our gun laws now as the FF's were writing about muskets & not "Assault Weapons!" :dohYou can't make this ch!t up!
IMOO the midterms will be about RvW vs. so called "Assualt Weapons!" Mark my word on that- remember emotions rule the Dummycrats/Leftist/Socialists! IMOO

A musket in those days was an "assault weapon". Nothing has changed, 2A still rules.
