3 dead in Oregon mall shooting - CNN.com

3 dead in shooting at a mall, happy holidays.

But keep in mind, its way to early to mention ANYTHING about gun control. Its time to mourn. Don't miss out on your NRA talking points.. .hate to have any real progress on the matter.

Yes.....because, according to some, ANY restriction on gun ownership is bad.

Let all the loonies in the world have free and easy access to guns because anything else would be taking away the rights of everyone else.

They would rather have DEAD people in malls, movie theaters, and schools than to have some common sense oversight on who should and who shouldn't have guns.

You can pass all of the laws you want, just about anyone can get a hold of a gun if they really want to. There's really nothing any of us can do about it.

Ban malls. The are clearly too dangerous to keep as part of our civilization any longer.

Oregon is a pretty gun friendly state. Very scary for me seeing I have friends and family that live there and go to that mall. A few close calls with people I know who were actually there, but no one I know was hurt.

I guess it's a sign of times that the first thing I
thought was "only two victims?" Couldda been worse.

A tragedy for sure, but in real light we see that last year 32,367 people died on the roadways. Life holds many dangers all around.
