"From February to September 2010, Loughner had five contacts with PCC police for classroom and library disruptions at Northwest and West campuses," the statement read. "On September 29, 2010, college police discovered on YouTube a Loughner-filmed video made at Northwest Campus. In the video, he claims that the College is illegal according to the U.S. Constitution, and makes other claims."
The college said it told Loughner that if he wanted to come back to school, he must "must resolve his Code of Conduct violations and obtain a mental health clearance indicating, in the opinion of a mental health professional, his presence at the College does not present a danger to himself or others."
In October, a record low 44% of Americans said gun laws should be stricter, according to the Gallup Poll. That was down from 78% in 1990.

Instead of more gun control, we need to make it easier to carry firearms and weapons.
How many shots do you think that guy would have got off if every person wearing pants had a gun strapped to their hip – one, two?
He would have been put down very quickly.
What about the Columbine shootings? How many children would they have been able to kill if every teacher and 18 year old’s had gun’s strapped to their hip?
People will not be permitted to go on a full rampage if they are put down right when they begin.
Just like the old west – everyone had guns, and if you crossed someone you had to determine if it was worth your life or not.
The solution isn’t gun control – it’s being more liberal with gun regulation.
I personally think that everyone, 18 and up, should have the legal right to carry a gun on their hip at all times, in public, stores or any other location.
I promise crime would drop so drastically it would baffle the minds of people.
The people that want to kill other people will find a way to get the weapons and ammo – be it on the black market or legally.
If you restrict those who are sane and level headed from attaining weapons you are empowering those that will get them no matter the cost and use them for malevolent intentions.

There are numerous discussions ongoing about this, but to answer your question, yes, she did. McCarthy introduces gun ban bills into Congress almost every year, so no doubt, she had one ready to go.

Property isn't what I'm concerned with, it's bodily harm by toxic-wasteland refugees.
