I think we can all agree that this was a horrible event. A tragedy.

I'm sorry people were harmed.

I'm glad the perpetrator is dead.


The people against the 2nd amendment will still be against it.

The people for the 2nd amendment will still be for it.

No minds are going to be changed. No opinions are going to be swayed.

If you remember the 70s , you werent there.


The 70s were effing awesome.

People could still buy a machine gun without having the incriminate themselves with the background check of Brady Handgun Prevention Act.

Amazing my parents ever survived to have me.

This gun control subject is mental.

But I get it.
It's easier to blame a tool, instead of the deeper issue.

Like the why this is happening.

I went to school with idiots who carried guns, they didn't shoot the school up.

People need to look at the change in our society.

Why are people(kids/adults) feeling nothing when they commit these acts.

Im gonna go out and guess that it's a combination of things.

Social media
Video games
Movies
Music
Broken homes (Single parents, Having more kids than can be taken care of)
Medication(People are overly medicated, which is something most, if not all, shooters have in common)

If it isn't guns, it would be knives.
If not knives, then it would be cars.
If not cars, it would be a baseball bat.

Crazy people will ALWAYS find a way.

Figure out whats making these people crazy, and ya might begin to solve the problems.

Not being an expert on purchasing things illegally, wouldn't it stand to reason that it's not too much harder to purchase a gun illegally either?

Seriously? Weed? Abortion? Religion? Gun rights? Anitifa? Etc? WTH? I came in late and kept reading from pg 1 hoping to find out what the real facts are regarding this desperate situation? What is happening? Was it simply a lovers or worker dispute gone bad? Was it a more calculated impersonal issue? What I found is too many ATSers rambling off on multiple immaterial personal perspective issues that should have no place in a breaking news thread!
Make your own offshoot threads in the mud pit if you want to make muddies and throw them regarding this!

Has there been any new news on whether it was one lone woman? Any other confirmation on the tweets of a possible male in armor? Did she arrived dressed in armor and try to exit as a innocent woman? Or was this a multiple shooter situation?

It is.

Some people think they can legislate human behavior, and they can't.

Which is why it's been an epic failure for the last 80 years.

Utterly amazing how everyone completely missed OSOTC's point. Which was that it's easier to obtain a legal weapon than a legal joint in AL. The difference being that the weapon is legal, while the innocuous plant is not. How TF does someone so willfully miss that one? I mean, like RIGHT over heads, the breeze & whizzing sounds and all.

Intent has a lot to do with it, I suspect. As in "intent to 'misunderstand'" the point.

Oh I dunno, could have something to do with the fact that's not what he said. In the original post on that subject, he made no mention of the legality of either. Further he suggested if people could get weed easier there might be less violence, which actually goes against the claim that he was only talking about the irony that it's not legal. People can get weed easy, it's just not legal.

It is, indeed, senseless. At least to those of us who have said sense.

That is not how I nor most others think of cannabis by default. I interpreted his comment by the default view I have, being that illegal pot, while not hard to come by if you commit to sussing out sources, is not in fact easier to get than filling out the paperwork for a gun purchase. Like him, I find it stupid that a pacifying plant is illegal, but a weapon that can harm numerous people in a short period is substantially easier from a legal standpoint to get and KEEP.

And he is correct, IMO, that physical violence would likely reduce notably if it were legal across the board. When have you ever known a stoner to get blitzed & violent, rather than settling for raiding a cupboard/fridge or fall asleep?

Yes but it took me asking to specify, up until that point his general statement was in fact wrong.

Much truth in your post


But...


It's easier to blame a tool, instead of the deeper issue.

This is only the case when if fits their agenda, because when a cop shoots somebody, it's the cops fault not the gun.
Crazy how that works right?

The issue will always be deeper than the tool, the scenario dictates the blame.
