    So when are we going to enact stricter car control… Yet, we keep selling them to people who feel more powerful by owning a car despite the fact that they probably shouldn’t have a car and are not qualified to operate one. Keep talking about guns, but you are missing the boat here. Perhaps we can just ban freedom, that might help? The shooter in this last shooting followed the lawful process (despite the fact he should have been prohibited) to buy the firearm, yet our government, which many on the left assure us will protect us if we only give up our freedoms, dropped the ball. Why was his background check passed, or more to the point, why did the laws not protect us? Because they assume that people, good and bad, will follow the rules correctly.

    I Still don’t see good reason to disarm law-abiding gun owners . The guns are not the problem it’s some people’s lack of respect for human life . It funny to me that you all get worked up over gun deaths but have no problem with abortion at all. Over 30 million dead babies were are your tears and outrage for them?

    Im pretty sure the gun grab is just a power grab from the masses. Sure it would be nice if all dangerous tools were never used against people but people are the problem. Not objects

    Too be fair and honest the . language of that “bump stock” bill was atrocious. It banned all “devices” that increased the rate of fire. Which is stupid because there is no standard rate of fire for a semiautomatic firearm

    Don’t worry, America! You’ll get used to it. It’ll be your new norm. You chose this knowing the consequenses, and now… here are rhe consequences.

    In 3 years or more, mass shooting will just be a rolling subtitle text on your news TV. You’ll get numb by it

    They say evil succeeds when good men do nothing, but sometimes good men do something, get killed and then evil succeeds anyway.

    Gun control has to be treated like cars

    Facts: 1) Shooter was able to buy guns because Air Force neglected to report a DV where he cracked open his kids head. 2) Shooter was stopped by an AR-15 lawfully owned by Stephen Willeford. 3) Death toll would have been much higher without semi-automatic return fire.

    If the Air Force had done it’s fucking job, which it should be able to given it’s budget, none of this would have happened

    Voting? lol haven’t we already seen what voting has done for us? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. We vote and vote and vote but nothing changes. The time for voting is over. Now is the time for action. Arms will be raised against the government if this continues. Not a threat just an inevitability.

    I’m afraid this is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s going to get much worse. Perhaps then something will be done. Let’s get ready for the shit-show.

    I can explain why it happened. Your 2nd Amendment and a population with a few psychos. Every country has a few psychos so if you make guns easy to get this is the result.

    The fact it’s only been a few days since the NYC attack and a month since the Vegas shooting, yet everyone says the same shit, everyone bitching about nothing being done, about politicization, about everything. Nothing is gonna happen, and yea people have practically given up. Honestly this country outta be ashamed of itself. This is literally a biweekly cycle. One week it’s people fighting over weather Muslims are bad or not and then a few weeks later it’s fighting over gun control. Literally it’s become the norm, and honestly I doubt anyone of you truly cares. People only start caring when it hits a bit too close to home. It’s really a shame that this is acceptable in a place that’s so hyped up to be amazing. Sorry but it’s just pathetic at this point.
