How about the military? Should we disarm the soldiers since they can't, according to you, defend themselves with guns?

Those cops were ambushed.

Should I post a link to the definition of that word?
You asked if victims had guns, and I pointed out two that did. Tell me why they're dead if having guns to defend yourself helps? Simple premise, and you made the claim. I never said to disarm anyone who is legal to have a firearm.

Better get rid of hospitals and doctors since people die in hospitals every day.

How does this statement pertain to reforming liberal gun laws that allow sales to mentally ill, and felons?

Bwahahah still it goes on....gun control isn't gun BANISHMENT it's about making sure people are sane, trained, observant of the laws....just like a driving licence.

100 years ago the ax was the massacre weapon of choice because everyone had axes!!!!!!!

It's a no brainer. You can't make crazy illegal but you can prevent them getting guns and ammunition at the corner store.

Could we frame this post? Sums up the entire issue.

Keep digging. That was Elliot Rodger's one run-in with the cops, not his only assault.

Then enforce federal gun laws.

I agree, and start by requiring background checks at all gun shows, and holding straw purchasers responsible for weapons used in crimes. Oh, this is not part of federal law, because the nra lobbies against this. Back to the status quo where guns are legally funneled to criminal with laws setup to no document it.

Oh please, this is already in law in Virginia:
