And your own thoughts?

Prevent this massacre? I don't know. Maybe not. What if the dude did not have the ability to legally convert his semi-autos into auto-like weapons? Would he still do what he did? The drymount do I know, but maybe not. In all likelihood, there would not be as many casualties though.

It is not just bump stocks. There a few other devices that will make your semi-automatic weapon fire at a rate much higher than it is intended to. Can't speak for you boys and girls, but I would definitely want anything like that to be illegal up in my neck of the woods. While we are at the legal subject, should high capacity magazines be legal? Definitely a tougher one, but I am going to vote no.
Edit: Even semi-automatic weapons... The only semi-automatics that make sense to me are shotguns and .22s. Personally, I do not see a reason to own any other semi-automatic weapon.


P.S. I have never really watched Fox news, but is it always/usually the case that a speaker expressing a different point of view gets interrupted by the opposite side, including the interviewer?
P.P.S. The guy starts bringing some sense into the conversation and gets a "But what would you have done to have stopped this shooting?" "Let me tell you what the NRA is saying about that..." Luls.

If our founding fathers knew that we were even thinking about ending John Q Public’s god given right to own a device that would have single handily won the war against Great Britain in like three hours, they would be spinning in their slave owning graves.

All getting a bit weird, dont you think?


We got the police changing their narrative constantly, now even changing the date the shooter arrived at the hotel...

Jesus campos is missing...whereabouts unknown.

No increases in the original number of deceased from day one?

Over 500 injured and not one person dying from their injuries sustained?

I cannot remember a mass shooting/ terrorist attack on this scale not having increases in its death toll as time elapses.

Those same Founding Fathers would be spinning in their graves if they knew we were hiding behind the 2nd Amendment to protect weapons that, in a 10-minute window, caused a massacre (by 1 drymounting gun nut) comparable in casualty & injury statistics to that faced by the 82nd Airborne dropping into Normandy during WWII. I'm thinking they would have a big drymounting issue with that cowardice.

I'd like to go back in time and kick Thomas Jefferson's ass in the town square.

I betcha Killary did it. With a little help from Bigfoot.

And Jesus Campos was picked up and taken to Zeta Reticuli by a spacecraft. But he's ok. He's with Elvis.

In other word's, have faith. For Jesus lives.

He doesn’t believe in Jesus though. He believes in Xenu.
