In Japan you are considered GUILTY if the police arrest you.

So it's OK to leave a battered spouse to be beaten but not shot? Why not remove a violent person from society?

One thing for sure. Disarming law abiding citizens isn't the answer.

There, I'm a leftist...……...do you feel better now?

Does it change anything about El Paso?

"There, I'm a leftist...……...do you feel better now?"
Despite the snarky question, why did it take me to bring it up BEFORE you talk about it?


The title of this thread IS " So what do we as responsible gun owners do about mass shootings?" yet ALL of the talk has been about EL Paso ONLY!

If you can’t acknowledge that these cases bust a huge hole in the good guy with a gun myth then you are probably addicted to your guns and arguing with you is the same as arguing with a drug addict.
"Simple. Get rid of your guns"

Do you REALLY think all the bad guys will?

"If you can’t acknowledge that these cases bust a huge hole in the good guy with a gun myth"

If you can’t acknowledge that these cases bust a huge hole in YOUR "the good guy "with a gun" myth"!

44 PAGES of guns USED for GOOD outcomes, and it only goes back to Oct, 2009

And some wonder why we CAN'T have "reasonable" honest discussion about guns!

Just because bad guys break the law doesn't mean we shouldn't write laws to protect society. This nation belongs to all of us.

Yeah I know NFL and I think MLB are getting this way. Some concerts too, but it depends on venue protocol. As someone that works security, this is vital. That said the gun free zone for venues that have officers works because there aren't really good areas to act like that. Vegas didn't even think of that for whatever reason.

Research Australia's laws, and what New Zealand did after their mass shooting. It goes beyond empty thoughts and prayers.
I think common sense gun laws are in order and more cops or armed security. Britain don't have shootings and police don't even carry. They have a few knife attacks but a mass knifing is never really talked about now is it?

Maybe the Bill Of Rights belongs to all Americans and it's not just yours to give or take.
