  • We should all walk around packing heat like in the wild west. The answer to too many guns has to be more guns. Furthermore a gun should be assigned to an embryo at conception

    • Yes, a good guy with a gun could have stopped Vegas, etc. If everyone is armed, just like a war, it’s bound to be safer!!!

      We should dismiss all the other evidence to the contrary. No other country exists except for the USA!!!

  • I gather his mother provided the information that he was mentally disabled. If that’s the case and she was aware of his mental state – why were guns in the house? She holds some responsibility for what happened.

    • We know what the problems are. We know the solution. We have weak, bought and paid for representation who need the fear so the GOP sheep keep voting for VooDoo econ.

      It’s no coincidence that every GOP policy makes the rich richer, the middle class disappear – and causes fear which the GOP feeds on.

  • Rest in Peace David. This leaves two teenage boys without a father. If the man that shot him was mentally ill, why did his mother let him keep guns? She is just as responsible for this as the shooter.

    • You liberals never fail to exploit a tragedy for your totalitarian, nihilistic, atheist agenda. How many millions have your atheist communist regimes killed, after mass gun confiscation in such regimes?

      • Look some people choose not to believe in a mythical skyGod , more bullshit has occurred through ridiculous belief systems than you can shake a stick at. When you maintain a belief in something that is NOT in your experience, then it’s just a mere belief. Truly spiritually realized beings on the planet, like Sri Nissargadatta Maharaj, Sri Ramana Maharshi and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev have realized centuries ago that THAT which is perceived as ‘God’ is the totality of ALL consciousness. ……………there is NO deity out in the cosmos. Like Jesus said, ” The kingdom of God is WITHIN you”………meaning conscious awareness, the background silence in which all things arise and pass away.

      • Heard of Benghazi? Mr. pot meet Mr. Kettle. All forms of extremism are bad. However, we know common sense gun laws work. We have tons of evidence.

        We have weak politicians who won’t do the right thing bc of NRA money. Look at Australia or any other developed nation.

        There simply is no excuse to be so ignorant and to vote for such ignorant politicians. Whatever letter is behind their name.

    • That’s like saying keep guns out of the hand of back robbers, criminals or drug dealers! No matter what gun laws are put in place scumbags will still be able to get their hands on them including people with a mental illness!
