If you had a well regulated AWB, this would not happen. The time is now to reinstitute a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle? This is the same small arms weapons system utilized in eradicating Al Qaeda, Taliban, and every enemy combatant since the Vietnam war. Donít give me that crap that its not a select fire or full auto rifle like the DoD uses. Thatís bullshit because troops who carry the M-4/M-16 weapon system for combat ops outside the wire rarely utilize the select fire function when in contact with enemy combatants. The use of select fire probably isnít even 1% in combat. So in essence, the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle is the same as the M-4/M-16. These do not need to be purchased as easily as walking to your local Walmart or striking the enter key on your keyboard to "add to cart". All the firearms utilized in my activities are registered to me and were legally purchased at gun stores and private party transfers. All concealable weapons (pistols) were also legally register in my name at police stations or FFL's. Unfortunately, are you aware that I obtained class III weapons (suppressors) without a background check thru NICS or DROS completely LEGALLY several times? I was able to use a trust account that I created on quicken will maker and a $10 notary charge at a mailbox etc. to obtain them legally. Granted, I am not a felon, nor have a DV misdemeanor conviction or active TRO against me on a NCIC file. I can buy any firearm I want, but should I be able to purchase these class III weapons (SBR's, and suppressors) without a background check and just a $10 notary signature on a quicken will maker program? The answer is NO. I'm not even a resident of the state i purchased them in. Lock n Load just wanted money so they allow you to purchase class III weapons with just a notarized trust, military ID. Shame on you, Lock n Load. NFA and ATF need new laws and policies that do not allow loopholes such as this. In the end, I hope that you will realize that the small arms I utilize should not be accessed with the ease that I obtained them. Who in there right mind needs a f------ silencer!!! who needs a freaking SBR AR15? No one. No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!

Columbine? That was four years into the 1994 Assault Weapon Ban and Eric Harris used a totally legal Hi-Point 995 with a ten round magazine. Apparently he solved the magazine restriction by carrying thirteen magazines. He fired 96 rounds before committing suicide. In addition, The Va tech shooter had two handguns, a 9mm and a .22.

The Bath School disaster is the deadliest mass murder in a school in US history. On May 18,1927, in Bath Township, Michigan, Andrew Kehoe killed 38 elementary school children ,6 adults, and injured at least 58 other people. Kehoe first killed his wife, fire-bombed his farm and set off a major explosion in the Bath Consolidated School, before committing suicide by detonating a final explosion in his truck.

Your post was proof that righties have no clue about the facts, and simply toss out insults and babble like loons when the facts are presented to them.

Which is why it's a waste of time to present facts to righties. Pearls before swine, and all...

You have made over 56,000 posts in 24 months. People get committed every day for being less obsessed than you are.The only reason you weren't committed is because you are so pale they think you are brain dead and aren't sure if Obamacare covers dead people that are too stupid to lie down.

If you did not read the ENTIRE manifesto, you have nothing of value to offer.

This officer did NOT vote in the last election - he wanted to vote for Huntsman (as I would have also), but he makes entirely too much sense in a right wing world full of extremists.

You should actually take the time to read his manifesto in its entirety before you prejudge. It appears the LAPD forced him to the extremes he's done, and it's quite sad to see what was an honest officer who actually went through all the proper channels, reported abuses by his own fellow officers, reported that his own fellow officers referred to all blacks as ni***rs, in his face, and was still stripped of his job.

It is realy an interesting read - a bit long, but very enlightening - and I've seen first hand how out of hand the LAPD is myself.
