    It’s also always too soon to discuss it.
    We must wait until all witnesses have died of old age (or another shooting, which restarts the clock).

    One failed shoe bomber and we all have to take our shoes off at the airport.
    How many mass murders will it take until we ban assualt rifles?

    Fairfield Hills Hospital, location Newtown, CT. Large residential mental health facility. Shut down by public saying the residents shouldn’t be incarcerated.

    damn good point.
    and the shoe bomber wound up not killing anyone

    The NRA’s answer to the mass shootings is more guns. They say if teachers were armed they could’ve taken out the shooter. This ain’t the movies & it’s not the wild west & maybe finally common sense will prevail & ban assault weapons whose sole purpose is to maim & kill.

    The NRA/ALEC Axis must end. These days only the NRA leadership is against back ground checks. What we need is to stress the mental health aspect of it too. Long neglected.

    •There is no point in outlawing guns. They are out there, there are millions, they are made of metal and will last for a thousand years if they are kept oiled. Failing that, I could find materials in my basement that would produce a workable gun, and it doesn’t take much knowledge of the subject to figure out how to do it.

    Bullets, on the other hand, are time consuming to make and require specific equipment. Production of enough to do serious damage would require planning and patience that are not characteristic of those who shoot up elementary schools. And, working on such a project might attract the attention of someone sane.
    Bullets can be individually stamped, and their sale can be registered, so that every bullet can be traced back to the person who purchased it. This way, a guy who wants to buy a couple boxes of bullets to go shoot deer, or the woman who wants a box to keep with the gun in her bedside drawer, won’t set off any warning bells. But the guy who is buying an arsenal will attract attention before he finds a more lethal way to do it.

    in China a man attacked a school of similarly aged children, guns are outlawed in China, the result is the children were attacked with a knife … loss of life… just the attacker … the children were hurt and maimed but all survived

    Not really. A full lead round will not likely remain in a form that would allow a stamped number to be useable for identification. Some other metal/hybrid rounds might, but not every round is like that.
    Also, depending on where the stamping is, it can affect ballistics. Not good.

    China apparently has a regulation requiring people to register when buying large knives (after similar attacks in 2010). Why did it not prevent this attack?

    - Good point, the only evidence this works comes from the Blaze, giving it the credibility of a Bat Boy headline.

    “China apparently has a regulation requiring people to register when buying large knives (after similar attacks in 2010). Why did it not prevent this attack?”
    - Apparently the guy used a small knife, keeping loss of life to zero.

    @ReFlex-76

    Looking at video of the attack, it seemed big enough to me. About the size of a meat cleaver.
