    Let this be a lesson to any of you Anti-American, we don't need no back ground checks, gun-nuts who think you can hole up in an underground bunker with all your guns, and think you can take on the Governement.



    "The problem isn't guns. The problem is people."

    I only have ONE question and only question only for you drbarbiedpm;
    Do you, or do you not support Back-Ground checks?

    (I think that would solve alot of "the problem" right there now, wouldn't it?)

    We don't need more government, i.e. stricter gun laws -- we just need people to obey the laws we already have. The problem isn't guns. The problem is people. And unfortunately, because of agency, people will make poor choices. There are plenty of examples of bad people hurting others without using guns, i.e. Timothy McVeigh. So don't blame guns. Blame the people who use them irresponsibly. Stricter gun laws will not stop people from making bad choices. Let's put the blame where it belongs. On people not guns. That's my two cents.

    The laxity of our gun laws is not a laughing matter.

    This gun nut was precisely the sort of person who should have no access to firearms. I want to find a way, despite all the remaining gun nuts who just don't care.

    It has been reported that this man had caused concern among neighbors for a long time.

    It would be interesting to find out if any of them ever tried reporting him to authorities, and if they did, what happened.

    Because as it stands now, even if he had been reported, no one could have taken his guns from him unless he had been convicted of a FELONY.

    Besides the laxity of our gun laws, we need to seriously consider stiffening mental health reporting that will allow a person to have the privilege of owning a gun removed.

    And yes, I meant to use the word "privilege."
