I am all for gun rights. But with your example, i simply do not agree. On paper maybe, but in practice...
Well show me the structure built with the rock compared to the one with the hammer?

I know a bit about magic too (being a pagan and all) However information is not knowledge or understanding, and certainly NOT experience.

Meanwhile Congress is focusing on planned parenthood, when there are innocent people being shot and killed in real life as a result of inneffective gun regulations that congress refuses to do anything about.
Talk about a horse and pony show
Isn't there a LAW that says x can't going around shooting y ?
Is there a law that made schools gun 'free' zones ?
Gun regulations is the real dog and pony show because they don't stop people like in the op.

Prayers to the victims. I believe the spin doctors are working diligently to make this shooting fit their agenda.
I love to read people's comments then look at their location. I like to stay out of the gun debates because I don't care to change anyone's mind and no one will change mine. I get irritated with the gun lovers because they make the same statements over and over, "better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it" etc etc etc. I also get irritated with the gun haters because they do the same damned thing. Bottom line is if you don't live in the U.S. your opinion of the 2nd really doesn't matter. You can post statistics all day long, guess what, you're still not going to change anyone's mind. Now that being said I am a gun lover and have had them for over 30 years and the funny thing is my guns have never hurt anyone. I do like conversing with people that have different opinions because that's how you learn. Now when someone starts talking confiscation and termination they are AS BAD AS THE SHOOTERS.

.... it is been almost seven hours later and we know next to nothing. The local reporters are extremely guarded with what they are saying. I don't know if we will ever know what "really" happened.

It just makes it easier and far more effective or efficient if you will.
Reading some of the comments from some of the links in this thread make me lose whatever hope for the future I had..talking about scores and high scores..what a disassociated generation of numb f'ing skulls
