Man Goes on Shooting Rampage in Georgia Town Where Guns are Mandatory

Early this morning, a Fed-Ex employee armed with a shotgun opened fire at the Fed-Ex processing facility in Kennesaw, Georgia. Six people were wounded, two critically, before the gunman finally killed himself. Witnesses to the shooting say the guy with the gun was dressed in the ubiquitous active-shooter uniform of black and camo and had bandoliers pulled tight across his chest. They say he looked “like Rambo,”“like he was heading into war.”

If the name “Kennesaw, Georgia” sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because the town has been a cause célèbre among gun rights and gun safety advocates for the past 32 years — ever since it passed a law in 1982 that made gun ownership mandatory. The law requiring at least one firearm in every home was first proposed in an effort to “protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants.”

We really must bring these guns to justice. I recommend cutting off their triggers and emasculate them. nHowever we must not not cofuse the guilty guns with along with innocent ones

Maybe if Fed-Ex allowed guns in the workplace, they would have been able to drop this coward before he hurt anybody.

FedEx was among numerous large Tennessee corporations that spoke out in 2012 against Tennessee legislation aimed at allowing employees "with valid permits to keep firearms stored in their vehicles while at work," according to the Nashville Business Journal, MSN,TNReport and other media outlets covering the issue at the time.

This is not the middle east. We don't cut things off as punishment for a crime. I'm sure that this gun can be rehabilitated and eventually be reintegrated in to society. Maybe get a job at a carnival shooting gallery or in a slaughter house.

Many people re opposed to corporal punishment, and I can easily see their point in many cases. But when you consider the damage this particular bad boy is responsible for, depriving him of his manhood, so to speak, is little enough in the way of retribution. And besides, it ill make some others feel good for having done something.

But what happens when you cut the trigger off of a gun that is later proven to be wrongfully convicted? Good luck trying to glue it back on.

It is not too dfficult to replace a trigger.

Guns are mostly never illegal. The owners or those possessing guns can be doing so illegally. The only true illegal gun is one in which the serial number is destroyed.

Fully automatic firearms are illegal except to those with special licenses and the military.

Black firearms, those identified as military weapons, are banned in some states.

Many firearms large magazines are banned in some states.

Some states have banned firearms with detachable magazines, flash/recoil surpressers, bayonet lugs, different stocks, etc.

Many firearms are banned because of the material they are made of.

Some countries have banned semiautomatic firearms.

Some firearms owners are persecuted for owning a "large number" like 6 firearms. Even thou if one hunts deer, small game and birds with rifles and handguns owning many more than 6 is normal. And some people collect firearms owning many more than 20.

And now the Legislature banned convicted domestic abusers from owning firearms, we'll see how that goes.

They are trying to make those firearms NOT made by a registered manufacturer to be illegal.

This includes 3D printed ones, those made in machine shop, etc...

Futhermore the face of the earth could be covered with fully automatic, loaded firearms and unless something pulled a trigger NONE would go off.

Retarded Libertards have placed the blame for firearms crime on the firearm instead of the person pulling the trigger. They feel all crime will disappear if they eliminate firearms from the face of the earth. Unfortunately the thugs will and do simply use their fists or other weapons to commit crime. And to remove firearms from lawful owners will simply make them defenseless. Is that what is best?

NO PHOCKING WAY!!.
