Itís always bad news. So no one in the El Paso Walmart in an open carry state had a gun?
They are afraid the police will shoot anyone who is armed and most times they do.

If only the mighty NRA and our Lawmakers thought the same.
We wouldn't have to wake up to headlines like the past 2 days.
WHY ARE THESE KINDS OF GUNS WANTED AND NEEDED?
Criminals, I can see why they want these.
But law abiding licensed gun owners who arent crazed criminals and carry to protect themselves and family.
Why do they insist on not banning these kinds of mass murdering firearms.?

Is it something in the water?
Don't think it's the water, but those far right extremists websites and social media.

We don't have that problem in Missouri. We don't need a license.

Do you mean the most common HUNTING rifle out there? The AR 15 and its variants?

Nut cases are using in every one of these mass murders.

Well, I believe firmly if the cops can have certain weapons we as citizens should be able to have the same stuff. Cops patrol our neighborhood sporadically 8 hours a day. We live here. I also do not hold with standard patrol officers packing weapons like an M4 with full auto ability. An AR? Sure. But they DON"T need full auto. If they do then we citizens do as well.


Cops are citizens just like we are in the end. SWAT, OK, they can have military grade toys. But regular patrolmen do NOT need such weapons. Semi auto only OK but over that is over kill. Cops and citizens should be armed the same. I'm OK with semi auto only patrol carbines which is what we citizens are limited to.


A regular patrolman has zero need of an actual M4 with a happy switch. That's forward deployed combat weaponry. That's the military's purview. Not cops. But more and more we are seeing regular patrol cops armed like forward deployed military. That is WRONG.


Personally I am quite happy and very well protected with semi auto only. Regular cops would be as well. There is no reason to gun up cops as far above regular citizens as is being done. Cops are not military combat personnel.

That is absolutely untrue. Fully automatic firearms were not used. You can thank the media for not telling you that.

According to the FBI, no ne has ever used an automatic in a mass shooting. Don't know much about guns do you?
