Are you unhappy that nukes cannot be purchased at your local arms dealer (whether or not you would be prone to using one)? It wasn't GuitarStv or a million of his friends who decided on that.
I'm unhappy that people like you and many others on this thread have decided that restricting freedoms is some kind of solution. People like you, with your mentality, are the very reason that this target rich environment was created. You told these people how they were allowed to defend themselves. You created a gun free zone. You created this scenario and now that the wolf went into the chicken pen, here you are demanding the people who didn't want this to hand you more of our rights.
Once again the government gets a pass. Once again the club that created this very environment gets a pass. Even the man who did it apparently gets a pass. His parents who raised him in a religion taught to hate gays, get a pass.
The more I read the anti-gun arguments the more abundantly clear the ignorance becomes. He'd have been better off with another pistol in this scenario than the rifle/pistol combo.
The AR scary weapon he used, uses the same round that our military went to because it was LESS deadly than the .308 they were using. The rifle and the pistol he used were semi automatic.
We don't have the 2nd amendment for hunting. Unless you count hunting fascist, tyrants and criminals as hunting.
If you think that our government being the only armed populace in our country is a good thing, you're insane.
Things very similar to this have happened recently in places with extremely restrictive firearms laws and you know who finally stopped them after their rampages? Men with guns.
That's right, you're ignoring the millions of people with guns out there who, given the chance, would put their life on the line with their gun, that you want to take away, to stop this asshole. You're also ignoring the laws, nanny state cowards have been implementing to create these very situations. The gun free zones don't work. You know it. I know it. You don't get to for even a second come after my rights for the bull shit target rich environments YOUR group think have created.
TLDR: Take responsibility for the freedoms you've taken away from people. You don't get to take rights away and then when something bad happens, ask for more rights to be taken away. These people had to hide and die like scared prey because someone told them how they were allowed to defend themselves. That's on them. Not me and not my rights.
