Actually person with guns make it easy to kill mulltiple people.

Notice the killer didn't for example bring a screw driver to he barber shop or oil change place?

Someone right to life is more important than some morons right to bare arms. Not every moron deserve the right to bare arms.

There are many hunters and gun collectors in this world that own multiple guns that never even think about using any of them against humans.

Kurt Meyers appears to have been a solitary person and did not have any close friends or family that he associated with. Only God knows why he did what he did as even the FBI have not uncovered his motive in killing 4 innocent people and seriously wounding 2 others.

We should put ALL the blame for this horrible tragedy directly where it belongs - on Kurt Meyers; NOT the gun he used.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families involved. I think it took a great deal of courage for this family to make the statement that they did and they are 100% right. I hope Mr. Haslauer makes a complete recovery.

I disagree with the gun quote. If that nut job dd no have a gun, he could not have killed as many innocent people. Statements like hat usually or from those morons who run or work at Remington! I do agree that I hope Mr Hasauer makes a full and compete recovery!

Gun wackos just don't get it. Guns make it easy to kill. To kill many people, in a short amount of time.

To own a gun, someone should have a legit reason. Self protection is not one of them.

What you dont get is that gun control means absolutely nothing in the streets
While we get hounded about gun violence the ones doing the violence but more illegal throw aways in the street

Why does the Govt focus solely on the gun control issue istead of the main issue with the violence which is the mental state of those doing the crime?

Because they could care less that these people who commit crimes have been in and out of prisons or mental health care their whole lives and some if not all should never have been released into general public but that shit happens when the govt cuts the wrong budget

I for 1 will never relinquish my weapons to anyone IDGAF what laws these asshats put on their books considering allot of these morons have been in office for decades and still cant balance a checkbook

Anybody who buys a gun wants to shoot something even if its a deer. Take their guns away and let them go to price chopper and buy meat like evryone else instead of saving their money for more important things like Keystone beer and cheap cigarettes. I never seen a mass killing with a boxing glove.

P.S. The victims family that made the statement is evidently just as dumb as Meyers and his lowly valley neighbors
