Kinda like Biden saying we need to spend money to reduce the deficit?

A bad man with a gun facing no armed opposition is free to kill almost without limit. How many shootings like these take place at gun shows? Rifle ranges?

Oh, and BTW, for the millions of guns out there.....this shooting, (Yes it sucks that children/adults died), but this was .00001% if that.....

So continue lefties with your ignorance, "clip" and telling lies of fully automatic machine guns sold on the corner....
Yes - because that clip vs. magazine thing really gets to the crux of the matter. Seriously?

You're the one who wants to make victims helpless and unable to defend themselves even in home invasions. How stupid is that!!!

And you're the one who would insist the victims in a home invasion can simply call 911 and wait for the police to show up. How stupid is that!!!

You want the criminals to have guns because obviously they will buy guns, just like criminals buy drugs because Probition of drugs and guns won't work.

Your policies will have more defenseless victims and more deaths from home invasions.

The story says several guns were used and the suspect is a teen-ager.

Which of the existing gun laws were effective in preventing this?

What new laws would keep incidents like this from happening in the future?

Speculation. At this time we don't know the relationship of the suspect to the victims, who the guns found at the scene belong to, or if this is drug related.

Has it ever occurred to you that some people might be experiencing genuine outrage? That not all of us are as unaffected by senseless violence as you are, and it literally makes us feel sick.

That's just a part of it and the ignorance of the left. IF what you say is true, then why is the left trying to ban hi cap "clips" or even saying that is part of the problem.....so yea....fake outrage....

Well why don't we put a few more gun laws, like the dozens of recommendations by the White House into effect and see? What's the harm of that? Wouldn't that be better than doing nothing ----otherwise known as business as usual ---- and let this senseless violence continue?

They don't care about people saved by guns, that doesn't further their political agenda. They lie about wanting to save lives, they really just want control.

ABQ is 260 miles from the border. And besides, most of the gun traffic along the border goes from north to south, not the other way around.
And are you really so naive that you don't believe the cartels cannot have weapons supplied by other sources? Just like now they get meth ingredients brought in from China. You truly are naive.

The same people who bring in all those tons of meth, heroin, cocaine and pot every single day can easily add another product line. Obama has turned over all control over the border to the cartels, he's certainly not stopping drugs and even the shipment of humans. He won't stop guns either. They can be hidden under bales of marijuana.

A whole lot of contraband comes right through Juarez into El Paso and then north on I-25 and east and west on I-10 -- tons of contraband of every kind daily.
