Note as well: the guy in Seattle was taken down by a guy with pepper spray, some courage, and some smarts.

The news story that you guys wan’t see is there the young woman was grabbed by a couple of armed thugs on the way to her car. The forced her back into the house in the hopes of committing armed robbery. Dad and mom got their guns. Mom missed. Dad didn’t. One dead, one wounded. Mom, Dad, and Daughter are just fine. Thanks for asking.

jack75287 is getting closer, we haven’t heard why or the reasons for any shooting that these shooters may have. By the few details gathered from the press we are able to see that many of these people who commit the shootings are very mentally ill or have a very serious ego problems. Have the sense of entilement gone so far that they feel that killing someone is their right and priviledge? No one should fall for that false premese that less guns will stop the killing; that boy from California killed eqedual number of people with both guns and knives, however, all the comments are centered on the use of the gun, which makes me suspicious at the motives. I don’t hear anyone in the press commenting on his state of mind. The videos shown portrait a consided, egotistical and missguided young man. The authorities, although warned, missed opportunities to prevent such tragedies, who will be accountable for those missed opportunities. While no one is held accountable, from parents to authorities and the killer himself, the tragedies will continue.
Wring hands. Say, “If only the laws on the books were enforced…” Do nothing. Repeat ad infinitum.
The American Way.
Too bad the shooter didn’t have high capacity ammo clips. He must have had his second amendment rights infringed.-If only he had second amendment high capacity ammo clips, he would have shot a lot more and gun violence advocates would have even more to celebrate.
I fully agree that members of groups that show a propensity towards violence should not be allowed to have guns. You could start with US citizens.
