On the above note, I'd love everyone who makes those sorts of arguments to explain to me why the armed guards and police officers who actually HAVE been present at some of these mass shootings weren't able to stop the shooters.

Hell, wasn't there a story in the news recently about two police officers who were killed in the line of duty when they responded to a domestic call at a house?

The US needs to install a giant nation-wide cordolaine signal distributor.

This depresses me on an existential level. I don't even know what to fucking say.

I'll see you all in a month or so.

I simply cannot understand how people refuse to have these assault weapons banned.

I know people who own these weapons and they stayed locked in a closet for years never to be fired. So just in the name of being able to own a assault weapon, they will pretend to look for other solutions even after one incident of mass murder after another takes place.

Just don't get it.

And none of them are part of a "militia" . . so I don't get the 2nd Amendment argument either.

I briefly checked into a couple national news programs during dinner and noticed all of the law enforcement officers speaking about how to proceed. Their solution? Increased surveillance of social media and training children to know when to report classmates to the authorities.

I hear so much about gun control as a debate about personal freedoms. What about this makes one feel free? At this point, banning guns seems more in line with personal freedom than letting guns be available to anyone anytime and then crossing your fingers that someone listens to a tip about a disturbed social media presence.

You’re not free if you can’t go to school/work without fearing for your life.

You shouldn't be testing for your life at school or work as is. You're hardly at risk.

Mass shootings aren't necessarily even why guns should be banned. Crime in general, non-inclusive, has the disturbing size for reason.

That isn't meant to undermine the tragedy of this or any mass shooting. Bottom line is the amount of people who die in mass shootings should be zero, end of. But to believe you are at risk when you're at school or work... whether it's terrorism or suicide by mass homicide, you're allowing those few people who cowardly used their own life to take the lives of others to have an impact on you when in reality, the numbers show you shouldn't be in fear.

He could have knifed all those children to death, too. Or maybe he could have driven a truck full of explosives into the school and killed 17 children that way. He could have karate kicked them all to death as well. Stop blaming the guns!

Remember: people who want to kill 17 people will do so no matter what - whether by gun, knife, pen, sword, cannon, bayonet, musket, +2 battle axe, nunchucks, or golf club. We are powerless to stop these super-human monsters who are intent on taking human life.

Apparently, this creep was already on the FBI's radar after someone spotted him on Youtube boasting he was going to be a professional school shooter.

Quote:
Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. "I'm going to be a professional school shooter," said a user named Nikolas Cruz.

The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment to the bureau's tips account. He also flagged the comment to YouTube, which removed it from the video.

Agents with the bureau's Mississippi field office got back to him "immediately," Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25.

"They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person," Bennight told BuzzFeed News. "I didn't. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them."

I don't advocate taking any and all guns away from people. But the assault weapons? Yes

It's silly to keep using the "personal freedom" argument to argue against banning assault weapons. No offense.

I could use the same argument to defend against a number of imposed laws, like drinking and driving for example.

Why should I be penalized with a DUI for having a couple of drinks when I can handle myself and others can't? My personal freedoms are under attack!

Stop blaming the guns?

Jesus.

He didn't use a knife or drive a truck, etc., because those weapons of mass destruction are so much easier to get and use.

Or did you notice?

I'm pretty sure Irvine was engaging in sarcasm. Here's an example...

The amount of tax money we spend on military we should be able to afford one soldier per citizen.

BUT NOT THE GOD DAMN ILLEGALS!!

We hear about mental health but every GOP proposal on health ends up cutting those services.

At least the Dems try to do something, even if it may not be the complete solution

Ok, well, I hear that argument used so many times that it went by me.

I suppose I can't handle eating breakfast and responding to posts at the same time.

Lesson learned.
