Mass shooters are America's version of suicide bombers, many driven by ideology and leaving manifestos, intending to kill as many people at random as they can before they are stopped. So the question refocuses not to simply "What doe we need to do about gun control?", but "What can we do in the United States to stop our home grown terrorists before they have a chance to act out?", with gun control still being a major topic of discussion.

What sort of mental health program would have foretold this shooter's possible intentions and called attention to his problems, if you believe this is a mental health issue?

Yep, the Alt Left is motivating domestic terrorism.

So true. Everyone in the ghetto buys their guns at legal gun shops. They would never, for example, buy stolen guns. Change the regs and ghetto guns will disappear. Presto!

You need to spread the word!

Trump supporters are calling Mayor Pete a huge jerk? Seriously? There are even some conservatives calling him a fake Christian because he's Episcopalian. Apparently some religions are better than others and since Episcopalians, Presbyterians and a few others allow gays and gay marriage, they are "less" than other Christian churches. I never knew there was a ranking so learning a lot here. As for what he's saying, that is absolutely nothing compared to the highly inflammatory things other, far more influential political leaders have said. Why isn't Mayor Pete being complimented for "just telling it like it is"? Hmm?

I agree with Mayor Pete and appreciate that he tells the truth.

Oh, is there a secret ghetto firearms manufacturing facility we're all unaware of?

Everyone one of them was purchased from a manufacturer at one point and dues forwarded to the NRA. They don't care anymore than the Opioid producers where and who illicitly gets their product so long as they get their money.

And no, no one is as simplistic as you suggest. But making more of them available isn't helping, is it? Each journey begins with a step.

It's the left's way of turning people against white men since they need to get attention off black/brown people (that's their label, not mine) and Islam. They have an agenda and this is part of it.

The left is doing no such thing, their own actions are turning people against the one who are racist and hateful. Stop blaming all your problems on black and brown people. The racist have their own agenda as well, an agenda of hate.

Dues forwarded to the NRA as a condition of purchase? That would be equivalent to paying NARAL before offing one’s offspring. tagging fetal body parts.

Yes, do eschew simplicity. Step into the ghetto and set them straight.

We’re right behind you.

But it's been mostly white men so the far-right just says "mental health" and "thoughts and prayers."
And then there's no support for mental health care, so nothing truly changes, and innocent people keep on getting killed by people who have no business owning guns.

I can't believe you can't comprehend what CNN is saying, nor can I believe that your exaggeration is based on what actually was broadcast.

Your outrage only over murders committed by black inner-city males is noted.

Why every time these mass shooting takes place, people on the right just automatically start bringing up Antifa, abortions, and black on black crime? I mean it's like clock work around here. It's like when one child gets in trouble, he's going to start telling on the other kids because he got caught. Mass shooting is a specific topic, and have nothing to do with the others.
