  •  Which gun regulation would have prevented this? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    By all indications, none of the shooters expect to get out of this alive.  None of them expect to keep their names a secret or the ownership of their guns a secret.  None of them expect to get away with this.

    So if all of these men had clean records before today, then under any regulations you might propose, all would pass a background check.  All would be legally allowed to own guns, and all would have registered firearms at home.

    If all those men are willing to take on a suicide mission, then explain to me which gun regulation would prevent them from doing so?  At what point would they say, "I'd love to go kill a couple dozen people, but the gun laws say I can't, so oh well..."?

    These men have willingly thrown away their entire lives, and you think a little more gun regulation would have changed their minds?  Why?

      ....Why won't you gun freaks let us try and prevent SOME of it?
      We average Americans should not be held hostage to the gun fetishists.
