    What if someone had stopped his Mother from getting such a nasty gun system? Whoever let your USA anti-assualt rifle legislation to slip is responsible.

    I still think about the trained armed guard (good guy) who confronts the (bad) guy who is wearing body armor and is armed with overwhelming firepower.

    We protect our money with guns, but protect our children with wishful thinking. Do you think our priorities may be a bit messed up?

    Actually, the legislation was a joke. Rather than banning actual firearms, it merely banned certain cosmetic features (like folding stocks) and magazines over a certain size. It took most gun manufacturers less than a year to figure out how to work around it, making the law more of a symbol than anything actually effective.

    Such a shooting still could have taken place when the law was active.

    “Trained armed guards protecting us from bad guys.” Isn’t that called “the Police.” I’m all for only Police having military-style guns.

    And why did his mom find it necessary to stock up on weapons in the first place?

    Good point…but why did she feel the need to have them in the first place?

    We TAX all those other things but do we tax guns?

    It is not the duty of police to protect you against a criminal with a gun, even if they know who that criminal is and that he has threatened you.
    Their duty is to investigate and make an arrest if a suspect is located.
    It is your duty to be able to protect yourself.

    Seriously? If someone sticks a gun in my face, the police can’t do anything to stop him, they just have to stand by and watch?

    Uh-huh….

    So the words "to serve and protect " are just a catch phrase for law enforcement?

    Now here is a crazy idea why don’t we have a few mental health facilities like the rest of the world does. You know the only reason we closed all the government ones down was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s nest which was not really accurate. At best it was only the worst of them.

    It’s not the car…. it’s the driver who kills.

    I think it should be compulsory for everyone from the age of ten upwards to have weapons of mass destruction. Then we’ll see what percentage of the population’s left.

    If someone’s going to kill – they will; but why make it so easy?
