      Virginia Tech shooter, and the guy who shot Congresswoman Giffords.

      ASSUMING they would have abided by the laws banning those weapons, given that they did NOT abide by laws banning shooting people. Like the Columbine would-be terrorists, who didn't abide by laws banning bombing schools, as well as not abiding by laws banning shooting people.

      I can't get my head around how more words on paper are supposed to stop people who don't already abide by words on paper. It just does not make sense to me.

      But, you know, I'm just another gun nut who thinks we ought to support and defend the whole Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic (especially domestic, which is where most of the damage has been done since 2001), not just the parts we like when we feel like it or don't agree with the people who are attacking it.
