As per the pacifists here in this thread lets not only outlaw guns but taking it to the next level (which will surely come once the guns are outlawed) anything that can kill will be outlawed one by one.

Where are these same pacifists and media when a gun saves a persons life?

Then it's complete absolute:

I vehemently disagree with some of the strong arm tactics that the radical gun nuts put out there in the name of all gun owners and I was directly responding to your post trying to deflect the OP's valid point by bringing in the children.

Get it? You wanna go one on one with me scooter, I haven't even opened up my can of snark so bring it.
i knew there was a reason i liked you.

Nah.... not really. See, we already "talked" about gun control. We had a big national argument about it and everything.

You lost.

Game over.

Obama attempted gun control and lost badly so now you're butthurt and every time there's a gun incident we can count on one of theses "I told ya so" threads by a lib. We get that. So what else have you got? That's rhetorical BTW......

How does a guy kill six people and live? He is supposed to be shot on site

This Haskell had previous run ins with the law so was he still a "good guy"? Did he legally own the weapon or weapons he used? Its a tragedy and a family is dead and that's the focus and we shouldn't make light of it like the OP.
The woman he was seeking had a court order against him. Do we condemn the legal system and police for failure to stop this man? Where did he obtain the weapon? Was he being medicated and what was he on when he committed this unspeakable crime? Its always far more involved than a weapon being used to kill, but its still necessary to point that out to some people.
He's in custody and we'll have the answers to these questions depending on how important the case is to the media to reveal them to the public.

Hmmm... Look at the photos. Ron Haskell is obese. Let's ban fat people. Psychologically challenged people let themselves get that fat.

Funny how it took a guy with a gun to stop him.

This guy obviously had a problem, I'm willing to bet some of his friends or co-workers had concerns about him. The solution would have been to report him and separate him from his gun, not everyone should own a gun.
