    BTW nowhere in the 2nd amendment does it say an individual has the right to bear arms. And, it certainly doesn't say an individual can possess weapons of war.

    You have to keep in mind the weaponry at the time. Who could have foreseen an AR15 or an AK? The NRA has been misinterpreting that clause forever. Gun control doesn't mean no guns. It means reasonableness. We're not allowed to possess other weapons of war and how these got excluded as being in that classification is a mystery. If it were strictly up to the gun lobby or gun manufacturers, there wouldn't be any class of weapons out of bounds as long as they're making a buck.

    And, it's folks like those students who suffer the consequences, not those who should be ultimately responsible.

    Yeah, he had to reload but with magazine fed weapons that takes all of 3 seconds.

    Right. Because your idea of leaving children defenseless has been working out so well.

    And we can't. Civilians can't own an M-16 without a special license from the BATF.

    It's been my experience that women are better shots than men.

    He did nothing illegal, including buying the guns and the ammunition. There was no legal reason to prevent him doing so. He was law-abiding. You need to read up on the meaning of "law abiding".

    The difference between an AR15 and an M-16 is a fifty dollar kit or in some cases, improvised ingenuity. I know that and so do you. And, with Mag fed weapons, the rate of fire is negligible when picking particular targets. Maybe these weapons could be classified as hunting rifles if the goal is to bag a ten year limit in half a minute. They have no use other than what happens every too often in schools across the country and when crowds gather and a moron decides to show just what these Non weapons of war can do like in Vegas. Don't be silly.

    I shouldn't have said there is no other use than warfare for these weapons. They also stand in for a tiny weenie for lots of folks. What thrill does someone get when brandishing these f'in guns? If they wanna play soldier let them join a service.

    That's what this shit is all about. Gun Mnfctrs. Get rich by supplying toys to morons. Most adults have put away their rubber soldiers by age ten.

    Everybody wants to be Rambo. It's childish and it costs too much in terms of innocent lives.

    He literally announced on the internet using his real name that he wanted to shoot up a school.

    That is completely illegal to do. And you would have to get a hold of one manufactured before 1986 to be able to do it.
