When are people going to learn? It doesn't matter what the laws are, criminals are going to break them.

Do you really think a background check on private gun sales would have stopped this guy?

1. There is a law against domestic abuse. This guy broke it.

2. There is a law requiring him to turn in his weapons after conviction on #1. This guy broke it.

3. There is a law preventing him from coming within 500 feet of his wife, after she filed a restraining order. This guy broke it.

4. There is a law against murder. This guy broke it repeatedly.

5. There is a law against discharging a firearm in city limits or public. This guy broke it.

6. There is a law against stalking. This guy broke it.

7. There is a law against him acquiring another weapon after conviction on #1. This guy broke it.

So sure, make your case for infringing our second amendment rights further. The only ones restricted, are the law abiding.

So the words responsibility and accountability are just not a part of your world views? Just big government solutions. Just like the Final Solution that makes you giddy thinking about it.

Explain your statement.
Are you implying that this guy's actions are the responsibility of law abiding citizens? Are the law abiding accountable for this guy's actions?
Are more laws going to force people to be responsible or accountable? The judge MIGHT hold criminals accountable, but can't force responsibility upon them.
What do world views have to do with the subject of this thread? Are you a UN Small Arms Treaty supporter?

Domestic abusers don't need a gun to beath their wives to death, but we the people need them to beat the govt if it goes rogue.

Obama and the police want gun control to make it easy for them to kill the Resistors. Obama and most cops are communists.
