This Guy was a known whacko that already took shots at people in the past. Everyone knew he crazy. Dont blame the firearm, blame the state of Alabama for not locking him up for good the first time he discharged his firearm at another human being.

First all, guns will never be taking away, its a way of life, that's how we have our freedom! Second all, there is no amount of laws you will have to stop someone from getting a gun, let alone killing someone. If they cant buy a gun, then they will find someone to steal it from,your house, my house, pawn shop, any store, its too easy, so what is that going to prove? Also, gun or no gun, there is 100 ways to kill someone! You gonna take away knives, saws, hammers, machetes, cars, razors, drugs, alcohol? Please, get real here! Stupid people are everywhere, things like this happen all the time, its stupid peoples way of life, and for that reason, there is only one place for them, and its not here! Crying over gun laws, is a far cry away from the problem..... The problem is, letting people get away with stupid things they have already been in trouble for! If some idiot is shooting at passing cars, arrest them with attempting to kill someone, be done with it the first time, that's what needs to be changed! The justice system! No, that wont get them all, but its a start, and with you knowing there is serious repercussions, the next one might think twice next time! I'm a 31 year old momma, who is packing and armed, im armed in my home and my car! That doesnt mean Im NOT going to kill someone just because I have a gun, I am going to PROTECT myself, and my family if need be! PROTECT myself from what you ask: THE CRAZY PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THIS WORLD, BEING ALOUD TO RUN FREE AND DO AS THEY PLEASE, AND TAKE ANYONES LIFE THEY CHOOSE! THAT'S MY GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO HAVE MY WEAPON FOR MY PROTECTION!!!!!! I see it my way, you see it yours. There is more than one way to kill someone, and as crazy as the world has gotten, you have NO choice but to be armed and protect your self! CORRECTION---------- Not world , I mean people! If the justice system, and law enforcement cant keep me safe, who will? There is no time for all that, when someone breaks into your home, or kidnaps ur child!

i want to add this, as a mother, my heart does ache for the parents of this little boy, and my heart breaks for the boy, because, kids know security, and his security is his family, and he doesn't have that, and i know he is scared! I cant imagine, and I pray to GOD that he gets out of this safe, unharmed, no child or parent deserves this. His life will now be forever changed, innocence lost! GOD BLESS YOU AND I CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE SAFETY OF THIS LITTLE BOY! IN A MOMENT LIKE THIS, DURING ALL THE DEBATES ABOUT GUNS, PLEASE DON'T LOSE SITE OF WHATS GOING ON, AND PLEASE JUST SAY A PRAYER, AND MANY MORE PRAYERS!

Yes very well said, the gun haters need to pull their heads out of their butts, a sheriff in wisconsin tells the people to arm themselves, so they can protect themselves that law enforcement cant protect them,, home invasions on the rise,,,and they want to take the guns away. Not everyone wants themself or their family to become victims of thugs. For all those that do, when thugs kick your door in, atleast you have your phone 911, maybe if you beg enough they will let you live, while waiting for LE to arrive , good luck with that.

I have a God given Constitutional right to own a gun, or as many as I can afford. The Democrats do not agree, because they don't believe in God, or the Constitution. When they do they will understand the 2nd Amendment.

Yes, even with safety/speeding restrictions, there will always be car accidents. Yes, baseball bats kill, disease kills, and all the other nonsense you folks spout but the latest amerikkkan massacres have all involved high powered weapons - weapons that no sane (yes that is the word - SANE) person needs.

Yes, dear friend, but high powered guns seem to kill as many folks as possible in a very short time and are a pretty effective way for getting as much bang for your buck (pun intended).

One thing that always seems to happen when legislation is drafted, it opens the door to more infringements. Perhaps looking at a state criminal code book as an example would give you some vision. Some of them seem to be the size of encyclopedias now. Everyday on the internet you can look for violations to citizens from government employees. From TSA agents to police to politicians to judges to lawyers and on and on. Tha tis the real KKK. The progressive movement has gone to far. Even with some flaws and dislocations it has become regressive. The destruction of what was good now costs ten times more to govern and no entity can keep paying for it forever. So as the progressive movement keeps going forward, the reality is it is regressive and moving humanity backward. And government will come up with an answer. Hard tyranny is our future. The final solution will be the prescription that will be filled. Governments love final solutions. It is so neat and tidy. And people who vent and warn about this, are always shouted down by naysayers until it is to late. We are almost there now. Its moving quickly and sudden economic downturn will bare the teeth of the devil we created.

According to the NRA these "crazy people" have just as much right to own any gun they want as you do.

Who are you to violate his 2nd amendment rights?

I bought a Walther P22 2 years ago. Extra clip and a laser attachment.

I had to go through a back ground check and had to wait 10 days.

You are so full of crap.
Being armed is no guarantee.
The four police officers gunned down while at lunch in
Washington State were all armed and all trained in the use
of weapons.
They never got off a shot. They were dead before
they knew what had hit them.
Same with any bus driver, only faster.
Jesus, you morons and your Wyatt Earp fantasies.
Carrying a weapon moron is like Winning the Lotto. If you have a weapon or if you buy a ticket, you chances are a lot better than if you didn't.
