3. I don't have to assume jack.

 

He called in to 911before he kicked of the slaughter to tell them he was doing it in solidarity with isis. Before then, he was known to his coworkers and the FBI as a sympathizer with terrorism and radical islam. We know where his mindset because he straight up told us. For years the Islamic world has railed against the us and our freedom by attacking the institutions that symbolize ut. It's not some big secret that our tolerance and acceptance of lgbt persons is seen as a symbol of our decadent hedonism and apostasy.

Let's drop the bull already.

Can you lay out for me the mechanisms that should have stopped him? The FBI didn't place him on a terrorism watch list, so even if that particular due process murdering mechanism was in place to deny a gun sale, it would have done nothing in this case. He was not a felon either. If someone has committed no crime, what other criteria would you use to restrict the right to buy a gun which would also be constitutional? That's a serious question, btw. I would really like to hear an answer, because nobody else has given me a clear one. Surely we can agree that there should be certain things which prevent one from purchasing a gun. What are those tnings?

Accusation of a crime?

Suspicion of a crime?

Suspicion of terrorist sympathies?

Ties to extremists through families?

Was ever on medication for mental health or sought counseling?

There is a line thst needs to be drawn, but nobody wants to draw it through someone else's civil rights. Where would you place the line and why?
