Response to Recursion (Original post)

Thu Jan 10, 2013, 02:42 PM

4. Alot has been said about mental illness

But, really, would the shooters at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Tuscon, the Sikh Temple, Newtown, Portland and other places would have been denied weapons? Shall we look at every lone individual, someone who walks in the streets mumble to himself as a potential mass shooter?

And what about friends of the ones denied license who purchase guns for them, as was during the ambush at firefighters?

I think that instead of concentrating only on individuals we need to ban... whatever passes for assault weapon. Anything that can discharge several shots in a few seconds. Anything that is used by military and law enforcement personnel fighting real criminals and enemy personnel in combat.

I used to visit range for target practice. One bullet at a time. No machine guns that would discharge several shots at one squeeze of the trigger.
