How about Asians? Virginia Tech, Pulse Nightclub, San Bernardino, Virginia Beach (black man), etc. This is a growing problem, and they aren’t all white men. But they are all men.

We have a White Nationalism problem in this country that is leading to Domestic terrorism. Republicans and Evangelical Christians don't want to condemn White Nationalists because they don't want to offend Donald Trump and his rhetoric of hate.

We have a lot of symptoms of other issues. Can we blame one person for each?

They are predominantly men, but not all men. Women have been responsible for just under 4 percent of the mass shootings.

He also agreed we need to close the "gun show loophole" or person to person sale as you say because he's seen guns exchange hands with not even so much as a name.
You cannot regulate what goes on inside someone's garage.

Don't hold your breath he'll probably issue a statement stating that there were fine people on both sides.

No. I see nothing wrong with stricter laws that include a background check every time a gun changes hands. Do you?

You treat each symptom individually.

Sure you can. Car sales go on inside people's garages all the time, and they are regulated just fine. Use the same regulations for guns.

Unfortunately we have two very recent threads on here involving mass shootings, and the craziness will likely continue and build into the 2020 election. Tons of people on edge in our society that are completely unhinged. Everyone should have CCW to protect themselves these days. Go through a proper training course and read up on self defense laws in your state. Firearms are not going to banned or disappear from existence so you are going to continue having these lunatics running around in society looking to do harm to innocent people. It takes law enforcement about 10 minutes or average to respond. Obviously tons of damage can be done in that time and you are a sitting duck without proper protection. At least you have a fighting chance if you have a CCW. Protect yourself as much as possible in these crazy times.
