I think it's hard for many to wrap their heads around this event bc we are not sociopaths. Some pray quietly, some lash out, some want to know why it happened, and some want to rush to conclusions,and all of us never want this to happen again.

Don't tell others how to react to this horrific tragedy.

I love how everyone says they're responsible gun owners but the second someone suggests putting things in place to make them legally and financially responsible, it's always "Whoa, whoa, whoa! Let's think about what we're saying."

The constitution protects a "Well regulated militia". I'm not real sure what's well regulated with what we have now.

cue the Mayan conspiracy music but I'm alot more in the frame of mind as Del on this. making things more of a hit monetarily/tax/regulate etc can be a great tool to offsetting future bad crimes.

I have had this stance for sometimes on guns.

*full disclosure-never owned a gun and never will

So all gun owners are mass murders. Interesting...

That is one of your more backwards theories.

If anything, just introduce smarter laws. As I have said before, similar to what they do with money laundering, based upon your purchases and frequency of your purchases for type of weapons or # of bullets and body armor etc, have a metric in place to where if you hit any one of those categories in a certain window of time, you are going to be flagged and then have to fill out a questionaire and be cleared of any mental health issues.

Should I mention what a heavily tax subsidized business the gun industry is? (defense spending).

Must be nice to get almost all of your R & D footed by Joe Taxpayer.
