Perhaps it's time we tried something else?

But what, exactly?

Theres plenty of guns in the country, we can reduce the amount of guns manufactured.
Get the ATF back up to speed so they can actually enforce the laws, and find offenders.
Use the same enforcement for guns that they do for black people, then the non registered and black market guns can get cleaned up quickly.
You do all that, law abiding gun owners dont have to worry, and non gun owners dont have worry.
Once we get some kind of mental health care in this country we might actually be able to find the wackos before they commit these shootings.
Chalk up one person who believes the "We just need more laws" liberals, and believes that society will be safer and freer if government is given more and more power to decide who can own a gun and who can't.

It's all in the Stats................

It is documented that neighborhood change of 26%
regardless of crime or gentrification results in transformation.
27% of the Gilroy neighborhood has changed demographically in addition
to 43% of the entire population speaking a language other than English.

Crime rises and quality of life suffers.

More guns needed! Everybody in the US over the age of 5 should be carrying a semi automatic then when the long haired, soccer loving, snowflake, Commie red bad guy starts a shooting the good guys can 'drop and roll' (like they've seen on the TV) and save the day. Let's see if we can get the amount of people shot to death every year up to half a million cos at least 3 in 10 of them will be socialist b*stards!

Out of respect, I'm gonna say, Condolences and prayers.

Is that better?

Not cool to politicize this. I'd heard maybe 4 dead now, including a six year old child.

Thanks to the police for taking at least one of the gunmen down.

The media is the arm of the democratic party. They fall in line with their talking points. Instead of reporting the news they interject their personal viewpoints!

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...5YPUt14bywMerw No weapons allowed of any kind. So when someone wants to shoot up an event at least they know there will be zero resistance!
