    So one of the steps has to be working on getting people to secure their firearms.

    I can think of at least 2 of these shootings were if the guns were in a gun safe it would have prevented the shooting.

    •  That's what they always say (5+ / 0-)

      They always say every random arsenal keeper should keep things secured.

      These random civilians are presumed "responsible", but they are in no way accountable for not doing their "job".

      Civilians do not need military grade weapons, they should be illegal and large arsenals of ammo with no reasonable purpose should be illegal.

      That's what the Army is for.

      •  Well I pretty much agree with you. (0+ / 0-)

        But I dont' think that has a chance of being passed into legislation.

        What value is it if the dems propose it rather than some more passable but good legislation get kicked out and the congress in in the hands of the GOP?

        Public anger was huge after Columbine, and something got done. But in the end mass shootings were still with us and the GOP was in control for the next 10 years.
