The second amendment is a tactic and needs amending.
What is this "assault weapon" you mention? Sounds rather melodramatic.

We've had mass shooters since the 80s. All Trumps fault? How retarded can we be?

The way I see it the left is dividing the country. Should the president cool it on Twitter, yes, but the vileness from the left and the identity politics are ruining this country. No one group puts more focus on the race of people than the left, the true racists.

Jesus Christ, some of you posters are sick. Are you honestly so deranged that you think:

1) libs are happy about this?
2) it's Trumps fault?

Get help. Your political anger has gotten to a level where you're completely irrational in your thinking.

It is amazing more, a long more, were not shot.
Were there that many there before the shooting?

There were 8 mass shooting incidents while Obama was President.
Did you blame him for them as well ?

If all law-abiding citizens were allowed to carry a concealed weapon, and everybody knew they could, would someone planning to shoot up a Walmart be just as likely to go ahead anyway?

Most people still wouldn’t bother carrying, but a few would. And the shooter would’t know which ones in the crowd, they were.

Some of the shooters would likely change their minds and not do it in the first place.

And how many lives would be saved as a result, without a shot being fired?

However, what did they call the Ft. Hood shooting, workplace violence?

At that, there is no actual charge of "domestic terrorism" that can be given, and the current legal charge of terrorism requires a foreign entity.
