To be perfectly fair it isn't what all Americans think either. Not by a long shot.

It almost didn't seem real to me, in that we assume things like this just don't happen in real life.
People aren't that calm, cold, and calculating in real life, right? There wasn't any gore to gross me out, but the feeling I was left with was worse, a deep unsettled feeling. The fact that someone could stew over some work issues long enough to plan and carry out an ambush like this -- in such a cold and calculated way disturbed me greatly.
That was NOT the first thing I wanted to see in the morning when I was checking my phone after pulling my pants on.
I think another reason it disturbed me so much is because it put me in the POV of the shooter. I didn't like how it made me feel, to view things as they saw them.
Again, though, specifically, what would a license/registration system check that the background check system doesn't already?
I see this behavior often in forums. ”You can’t say that” ”That is very insensitive to say or to speculate about” ”Let the family mourn in peace” Or whatever the line might be. But this line of thought and generally despised behavior doesn’t bother me, I know what I do is backed by the search of the truth. Something both me, a victim, family or affected population logically would want to be entitled to.
It’s one thing to own one of US’s biggest newspapers and print my own speculative theories and indirectly make all people take them in, And it’s another to write them in a forum involving conspiracies. Oneself seeks to take in alternative information, not the other way around.
But I do apologize if something in my initial comment have been a repetition of what many other have stated in the past 40+ pages, and which could be seen as pushing a certain line of thought. That is not my intention.

The same recycled garbage from any other shooting.
We didn't see geysers of blood. Nobody did the funky chicken. People didn't react the way "we" think they should have. Can't be as simple as a guy got pissed off enough to kill somebody. Blah blah blah.

If you want to see some serious gun violence, then just try to take our guns away.

Needing to go though a licensing process is clearly an effective deterrent
We see it everyday, every week, every year. Are you suggesting you would use violence worse than what we have already seen if someone tried to take your guns away? Does that seem sane to you?
