Honestly, who knows what the guy was thinking, and who cares, he is dead and anything they come up with is guess work and assumption, we will never know for certain. I'm more concerned with the potential ramifications to the hearing protection act and possible (FIngers crossed) repeal of the NFA.

That whole area around DC is a Guns Free Zone. Had the folks in the Dog Park or joggers had been allowed to be armed and protect themselves,this may have even ended sooner.
The shooter had and was allowed to keep his gun permit even after he assaulted his own daughter, punched a woman in her face, and he illegally discharged a shotgun in public. All charges were dropped. Nothing was done to remove his permit to own an "assault rifle and handguns"

He was from Illinois, so I'm waiting for the libs to blame it on our weak gun laws. Believe me, we have to jump through flaming hoops to legally purchase in Illinois.

I am afraid some one will get a big idea about doing some thing to the President. The severed head and the play about killing the president might give some nut job the idea its ok to do things like this to the president hope the secret service takes steps to keep him safe

Do you guys remember the crazy lady that attempted to run congressman Kustoff off the road? She got a restraining order, no jail time and no permanent record.https://twitter.com/ComradeArthur/statu ... 1024551936

It seems like there are 2 sets of rules and laws in our country, one for conservatives and another for progessives/liberals.

This will not end well.

I thought the main thing was the speedy and complete recovery of rep Scalise as well as the capital police officers that were hit. I believe both sides of the aisle were resolute on this as well as condemning the violence. That's what I got, did I miss something? Scalise or Giffords, it is all the same and needs to be condemned.

Best Regards,

Mark

Actually Mark, most of the left side of the aisle did the right thing and were truly passionate about their condemnations. However, our wonderful Senator brown is still in Oz and his remarks mirror that.

That's true. I hope it continues, but I fear we'll hear more of the same. I'm betting well be hearing the same old talking points in a day or two. Background checks, gun show loopholes, NRA is evil, etc. I sincerely hope I'm wrong. God bless and stay safe. Mark

The press jumped on the "weapons" used and could not wait to say it was an AR15.....then a M4 carbine.....then it was 7.62mm firearm and now it was an SKS carbine.
The pistol "is a 9mm S&W".
The push to stop surplus "weapons" from being sold is back on the burner again.

Did anyone else hear the news media say that the California UPS shooter was using an Assault Pistol ? Because I heard it both on a local broadcast and the national news .

The primary purpose of gun control is to protect the people who implement it.
At least there were some armed people who were able to stop the shooter.
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.
