    Disgusted: there were TWO armed security guards in the club in Orlando, the “good guys with guns” didn’t prevent the massacre.

    I have hunting rifles with five round capacity. I had an M-16 – the base for the AR 15, and parent of most ot these similar weapons, and it was the size of the magazine (small by today’s standards) that made it more deadly against humans, as in combat. Same for the AK-47 which is a much heavier, and far more accurate weapon than the 16. (A REAL AK btw, not the cheap knockoffs most of these clowns buy.)

    I don’t need an M-16, AR 15, or AK for any legitimate purpose served by by other pistols, rifles, and shotguns, NONE OF WHICH WOULD BE BANNED, even in most of the countries that DO ban semi-auto military style weapons. Hunting and sports shooting is still allowed in most of the countries most often cursed by the NRA-types, btw.

    While I totally support EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, I’ve observed decades of abuses under “Afffirmative Action”. Giving minorities additional preparation for entering school or a job that they couldn’t afford, or find access to, is affirmative action, and rational. Putting a person unqualified, and unwilling to actually GET qualified, into a job, or school, is bad all the way around.

    A hand UP is a positive, a hand OUT is not. BTW, those “majority folks” out there complaining about giving that hand up, ignore the facts of who many hand OUTS they’ve been given by position, of class, or inheritance. Just think about poor Donald Trump fighting desperately to get ahead with only a million dollar loan and job given him by his dad! OR the Kochs, Scaifes, or many others in the 1% and contributing to rightist wing causes who INHERITED THEIR POSITIONS!

    NRA’s first focus is selling more guns for their “sponsors”. There first weapon is fear and panic among the already fearful and ignorant.

    Sure took a long time for Cheney to get one.

    Pulling a gun on someone who already has one pointed at you is pretty much a guaranteed way to get shot. Over 90% of folks who try that, get shot, fortunately, not always fatally.

    BTW; fully automatic weapons are NOT ILLEGAL!! They are just heavily regulated for those folks who DO own them, like my nephew, who owns two full auto firearms, LEGALLY! Regulating large capacity magazines, and improved background checks, as for folks with Concealed Carry Permits, or automatic weapons permits, would greatly reduce gun crime. It WILL take a while to get all those illegal, as in stolen, weapons out on the street already off the street, but registration and licensing is the best way to eliminate “straw sales” and other transfers of weapons to felons and others who can’t legally have them, now!

    ISIL is the boogeyman, Wayne La Pierre and his band of merry warriors are the real threat.

    Reality bites, and the massive number of death by gun in the US isn’t even remotely close to being caused by ISIL or Islamic terror. It is home grown terror called “everyday life” in the most heavily armed citizenry in the “civilized” world.

    There is definitely a “Post Columbine” effect written up in a Scientific American article that says why giving these morons more pubicity, whether the individuals or ISIL, is a bad idea. Our “have to know everything” culture wanting to blame ISIL for Orlando, does NOT want the FACT that TWO ARMED SECURITY GUARDS inside the club were unable to stop the carnage before the worst was over. The NRA “good guy with a gun” argument failed pretty badly there. Two guys with semi-auto pistols didn’t have command over one guy in a crowded room firing off a weapon with massive ammunition capacity. Target identity and selection, just as in the Giffords case in Tucson was a problem the NRA, “just shoot wildly and shoot ’em all” “The Armed Citizen” doesn’t worry about.

    Assuming he’s ticked off by the Texas decision?
