Just think if the Slaves had easy access to M-16's & AR-15's.
Would they have been slaves?
You people like to submit, eh? What if I wish to make you my Property?
Someone is going to have a gun, to make you submit. Or will you be the one, that secretly has a gun and want everyone else unarmed?
What protects you when you say, NO? The evil eye?

Another right wing terrorist attack likely inspired by the hateful rhetoric of none other.

The Garlic Festival shooting demonstrates that right wing domestic terrorism is a bigger safety threat than illegal immigrants.

Wow! Who knew, everyone has no self control and wants to kill someone.
Murder is still murder.
Do not confuse self defense against those that have no self control, with Murder.
Would you go out of your way to PO someone, if you knew they were armed?
Are you projecting how you would act with a firearm?
Kids had their own arms, when I was growing up. No one died.

It is the scary black rifle.... When handguns are the weapon of choice. Why is that? Because governments fear the rifle, way more than the upclose and personal, handgun. That is capable of holding just as many rounds as a modern sporting rifle.
No. Just pointing out that easy access to firearms is a double-edged sword. As people love to point out, criminals find it easy to get guns. Among other reasons, because we have a huge reservoir of firearms in circulation already.

It's the world you argue for, isn't it?

I haven't seen any news reports identifying the shooter or his motives. Given how often initial reports of just about everything have turned out to be wrong, it's probably not a good idea to jump on any bandwagons yet.

The anti-farts are loud vandals, but the right wing terrorists are deadly.

Never saw a sign "No Guns Allowed" at this Garlic Festival.
Be prepared to see such a sign in the future, if liberals have their way.

Guns are not a complete equalizer, but they provide a lot of equalization.
Good that he knows his limitations. I know mine, too.
I am not such a great shot, so, unless I have the guy
in the clear, and at close range, my gun stays hidden.

Does the gun carrying torch now fall to ME for protection? ROLF Not happening. So I suppose if we are involved in some mass shooting, we DESERVE to be shot because I refuse to know how to shoot a gun with nothing to do the Gun Laws, or Gun Free Zones.

No, it doesn't fall to you, but to the nearest
able bodied person who has the mental capacity
to deal with a firefight.

I seem to be reading between the lines of what some are saying on this thread. If you have the choice, not these State gun laws , and don't arm yourself, you deserve to to killed.
Nope. You're not reading between the lines,
you are reading what is not there at all.
You do not have the mental/emotional capacity
to deal with a firefight, so it falls to the guy who does,
and if he or she refuses to defend you, then he or she
is negligent in their civic duty
