This is my exit stage left cue. Why is it, every single shooting story devolves into a shouting match over guns. Anyone remember, that 3 people are dead, as of 3 hours ago. We don't even know for sure how many may be injured....That this will be the memory that many, many people, will carry from now on, of Christmas....
Carry on with your vitriol.....

Another example of dangerous extremity.
Why do you think fully automatic weapons are necessary? Who is going to carry an AK everywhere they go in case something goes down?
A fully automatic glock would have been a disaster in this situation. Teach people to make their shots count from a young age, and deaths will be avoided.
Everyone should be allowed to carry a semi-automatic pistol. I personally would prefer a single-shot rifle to a fully auto if it had to be one or the other.
On the other hand, criminals looking to kill a crowd of people would find full autos very useful.

From what I've seen, spree shootings tend to happen in lower crime areas. This may or may not be of importance, but does seem to be statistically accurate.
My opinion about that would be that lower crime areas are more controlled - thus creating an environment where younger people have less ability to blow off steam in less extreme ways.
This is not something I've researched, however, just "off the cuff" observation.
I bet you still blame religion for so many of the world's ills though,
and I didn't blame anonymous, I said that the shooter was probably inspired by them.
