Yeah, I am sure more background check would do wonder.
So if cops can dress up in body armour, then so can you for everytime you walk out your front door. But won't be as easy to open up to use the bathroom.

About 2% have licenses but few actually carry.

Nope. Science is going to have to discover a more effective procedure. Not everybody wants to face the day in body armor like a cop and/or armed with a pistol.

1. Why aren’t you armed then?
2. Statistically you are more likely being stricken twice by lightning than being in a mass shooting.

So because they didn't prosecute a large enough percentage the laws isn't working, the denial of thousands of people means a law isn't working.


The solution is in greater control over guns, universal background checks, more severe penalties, increased waiting periods and a ban on assault weapons. They cant even ban bump stocks so I don't have much fait.

This is why you liberals can't think straight.


The increased gun sales are not because "mass shootings".... they are caused by the over-reaction to those mass shootings by politicians who use every opportunity to clamour for restricting guns.



And, as always, nothing changes anyway.

Other then this case, I can only find 1 other instance where an AK-47 was used and that was in 2007.

A usual the left media goes for the theatrics and wild exaggerations with "AK STYLE weapon" in their reporting on these types of shootings.

Please explain want an "AK style weapon" is.

A gun either is an AK-47 or it ISN'T.
What use does an AK-47 have in the hands of US civilians?

So thank you for politicizing the event which drive my profits.

I swear I deal with morons.
Why are you angry about that supposed liberal preaching if it is making you wealthy?

That means 40,000 criminals, whom we can't trust with firearms and who have attempted to purchase firearms, are let loose on the streets EACH YEAR!

How does that mean the law works?
