You guys se were this is going…
Well obviously, if watch lists, background checks, the FBI and gunstore owners can't stop the bad guys, we'll just have to make all firearms illegal, period.
Gongggg! "Bring outcher guns!"

For decades conservatives have constantly said "shall not be infringed." Now that their messiah Trump is saying the same thing... they're defending him and applauding him for common sense measures.
OK...I've got a question. Yes, a question. I don't know the answer, I'm not baiting anyone...just a question. It seems that the gun store didn't have much information for the FBI to follow and that seems to be the reason/excuse for there being little or no follow up.
But...if a gun store reports someone trying to buy armor, mass amounts of ammo and appears to be of middle eastern dissent...why wouldn't the FBI stop by with pictures of area people who are suspect or considered "people of interest" for the gun store owner/employees to look through?
The narrative is being pushed that the shooter was "under investigation by the FBI," and an all around take on that fact and how he still was able to get these firearms and ammunition.

the FBI's problem is he was a full citizen making legal purchases
if you should be put under surveillance for buying something, maybe it should be illegal ?

Call me cynical and you would be correct, but the "hill" of which you speak--constitutional governance through elected officials--will not be retaken. The barbarians are inside the gate, and have been for years.

So it's the fault of the gun shop owners that this loser killed all these people.
The co-owner of a Florida gun store says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition.
Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, according to Abell, but was told the store didn't carry it. He then made a phone call and spoke in Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition, but employees did not sell it to him.
In all fairness to the FBI when the apologist-in-chief erases these people from watchlists so as not to offend anyone.
