So far, all the police have found is traffic-ticket. ONE-PERSON committed this crime. Attacking every legal gun owner, or trying to make them feel guilty for the actions of one crazed person is not excitable. Which is the foundation for the dailykos article. I'm not buying it.
It was ONE PERSON with a SHIT LOAD OF GUNS AND AMMUNITION. Could one person with a knife kill 59 and wound over 500? Could one person with a pistol? Could one person with a car?

Furthermore could one person with any of those items have done it while barricaded in a hotel room at a distance of about 300 yards? You want a weapon to go hunting? Great. You want something for home defense? I'll back you 100%! You explain to the families of those killed why ONE MAN needs over 2 DOZEN rifles and THOUSANDS of rounds of ammunition.
Thanks from Clara007

Because then it's hard to convince the public it was a lone wolf attack instead of a CIA false flag.

Let us know how that works out for you.
If you don't PM people, then you can never work with them to become part of a solution.

You cannot demonstrate here today how any gun control law that has been offered would have prevented this tragedy.

OTOH, keep your eyes peeled. I will be right as to what set this guy off - political jihadists or SSRIs. That's where we should focus our efforts in order to prevent this stuff from happening again.
Thanks from Sabcat and Sensible

Uh, the guy violated many laws, including one against murder, how were more laws going to stop him?

I suggest reading some Hannah Arendt, she predicted this increase in violence.

The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.

An intelligent law which would ban all semi-automatic rifles and make it a felony with a mandatory 10 year no parole sentence for owning one would greatly decrease the casualty numbers, just for one.

I read a very ironic news item this morning. Gun stocks have actually GONE UP. They FELL 17% the day after Trump was elected. Now after the shooting they've gone up about 3%.

Big news on BBC and CBC. Their take is that all kinds of investors think this will cause lots of guys to rush out and buy lots of guns because they think this will in fact cause more gun restrictions.

But the NRA has their backs. Nothing to worry about, I am sure.
