1. I thought I was, then I realized

 

my son shops there and his SO works there. Now I'm not so numb this time as I was last time. She's fine, I've found out, and in lock down waiting for police escorts out of the mall.

4. No, when tPtB squeeze and squeeze, some people are going to snap.

 

I just see it getting worse as more and more people face desperation and poverty and all the familial and social burden, embarrassment, and frustration that go with same.

5. Get ready for the same gun lobby response

They'll say something like: "it's not appropriate to talk about gun violence at this time. It would be wrong to politicize this tragedy." The problem is that it's never the right time as far as they are concerned.

6. no way, the response is "more people at that mall should've been carrying"

then god knows how many people wouldve gotten popped at the mall on a tuesday night.

I've got lots of guns but if they were banned tomorrow, I'd turn them in, in a heartbeat if it helped the odds of people getting shot by these lunatics in public places.

13. Don't bet the farm on it..the news wold have been ablaze with it

Name one case where a CCW citizen (not off duty police officer, corrections officer, military Police) successfully neutralized a shooter in an active shooter situation.

Just one please and maybe, I will listen to the retarded CCW arguement.

7. How do you know that it wasn't a nut who "went guns"?

 

He could have been a nut who decided to get guns after he was nuts.

11. Hahaha!

Quite logical ... because (hand) guns are designed to shoot people and cars are designed to crash .... oh wait, cars are designed to transport ... never mind .... your answer isn't logical at all.

12. Guns aren't designed with the intent that they will be used to shoot people.

 

My guns have never shot anyone and probably never will. Guns are tools, nothing more. Demonizing or attributing evil qualities to them makes you look primitive.

15. WTF!!!! did it hurt when you pulled that out of your butt?

Guns were solely designed to KILL. period. Why do you think we use them in WAR? To scare the bad guys? Intimidate them?

You should see a physician, your butt has to be bleeding profusely after pulling that one out.

20. They can be used to shoot people. That doesn't mean that every gun is intended to shoot people.

 

Maybe the ones made for the military, but civilian weapons shoot paper or deer. It isn't my fault that some choose to misuse a tool.

21. Mr. LaPierre, you are the reason I left the NRA

Your stance and arguements supporting murderers are totally without merit, intelligence or thought.

Your guns were made to KILL. Period.

You need to consider purchasing boxing gloves tomorrow for home defense since guns weren't designed to kill people.

Because if you have firearms for defense, you are a fucking moron if you pull the weapon and THREATEN with it, you'd better pull it, aim it and discharge it into the intended target, the bad guy human being..

if you can't grasp that simple concept, if you are totally immersed in the NRA kool-aid, then there is nothing else I can do except say good day sir.
