    Guns are completely banned in DC. Gun free zones are victim zones.

    Less than 24 hours after Alexis began his attack. My condolences to the victims families and loved ones.

    There were guns everywhere in that building. The shooter used his shotgun to arm himself with more weapons and ammo. He bought his shotgun in Northern VA, not in DC. however, it has to be noted that he had no conditions under which he would have been banned from owning a gun. Not even his two previous incidents where he was charged with discharging firearms warranted a flag on his name.
    My only question is this – did he buy his gun at a gun show, from a private owner, or from a store where he had to go through the mandatory waiting period.
    @ mskemple - thank you for your compassion and your very kind and appropriate words of sympathy. We need more open hearts like yours.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    I guess that is a call for my patent pending, bullet proof “gun free zone” stickers.
    You do know the guy got the “assault weapon” or the more high powered gun off an officer he ambushed? So how is your call to ban them or congress to do something going to do a thing? Oh you just want to stir the pot over a tragedy.

    Poor Benson stuck in a Mobius loop of surreality. More gun laws will not solve the problem of dangerous crazy people running loose in society.

    As long as some states are lax on gun control, it’ll be very hard for states with strict gun laws to do much. The killer yesterday came from Texas where guns are cheap and easy. But to say gun free areas are victim areas is inaccurate. Countries with strict gun control generally have very low gun death rates. Exceptions are those with extremely high poverty rates.

    If liberal policies worked – DC, New York and Chicago would be the safest cities in the world.

    And Detroit would be the most prosperous.

    Despite two past incidents where he fired guns in anger, he was able to get a concealed carry license from Texas. As long as we have right-to-kill states where anyone can get a gun with no background checks, no one is safe. In any other civilized country in the world, he would not have been allowed to purchase a gun, and the criminals who sold his guns to him would be held liable for breaking the law and would be shut down. Criminals cannot get guns in countries where selling guns to criminals is not tolerated.

    So explain to me how these ideologues that push for gun control get away with ignoring the common theme running through these mass shootings……mental health problems. All you do is remove the tool used to commit the crime, but do nothing….NOTHING….to treat an underlying issue.

    @Genome Project

    Speaking as someone who spent 27 years in the Navy, military bases are gun free zones. You are not allowed to carry one, have one in your vehicle, and if living in on base housing have to register any you have with the base command. Those in barracks or transient housing cannot have weapons either.
    At Ft. Hood the only person with a weapon was that traitor Hasan, the shooter.

    @Omnius…coddle the mentally ill so they can buy weapons to commit these acts of violence, Coddle the criminals so they don’t feel bad about themselves…The guns are not the problem, the problem consists of Liberals like yourself who want do nothing about addressing the root cause….people and the touchy-feel good punishments. Quick hugging bleeding heart theology. Numbnuts

    @Genome Project….Another numbnuts, The soldiers were unarmed but don’t let a little fact like that keep you from spewing your b.s.

    Not true that Congress is asleep. Most are down at the bank cashing those “campaign contributions”.

    Congress cannot prevent mass shootings. No “gun law can”. We now have 50/50 states with concealed carry. Concealed carry laws do reduce crime.

    @David

    Unfortunately, there have been a lot more shootings and crime in general….

    What you are claiming is selective. It also ignores the Monash University shooting of October 2002 where a student killed 2 and wounded 5.
