It happened in an attorney’s office, they probably wish now there had been someone there with a legal concealed weapon.

You don't take your gun to work. There are supposed be police in the city. Guess they took too long to arrive. Bet they will be armed tommorow. No one is safe as long as the crazies are allowed to run free.

Yepper these isolated shootings get a lot of press whereas news covering the hundreds of dope related murders in chicago get a pass.

Just goes to show how false your assumptions are, but that is S.O.P. for liberals.

Those self-serving anti-gun zealots have no shame. They'll "use anyone” to advance their knee-jerk demented attempts to throw the law abiding in with such individuals as adam lanza. Case in point was Giffords being hung out like they used to do with Brady...
I guess the people who fall for such spectacles live in ivory towers and personal tragedy of any magnitude has escaped them...thus far.
Yes what Giffords went through is indeed tough but they do not want to wear my shoes when it comes to tough times. The main difference is no one saw me going after inanimate objects or stepping on the feet of millions of people who had zip nada nothing to do with anything related to my battles.
All these gun ban zealots have to offer is banning guns…period. No backing laws already on the books, no cry for a death penalty, no cry for armed school security, no cry for educating the public about keeping guns out of the hands of the next adam lanza. In fact I'll guarantee it there's a number of young punks out there right now threatening a parent or parents or guardian with pulling an adam lanza if they don't get their way, etc.
But to a gun ban zealot it's the individual who plays by the rules and happens to have 30 round magazines and a AR15, etc. They're the problem but only in the minds of pathetic idiots who will be where they are always are should you and yours need help, "NOWHERE."

It is a terrible curse for any "self-serving" American to wish we had less gun culture and more intelligent culture.

Yes, lala, there is no shame in such a wish.

Will that be the NRA new propaganda to have all attorney offices armed - just like the NRA/gun businesses want guns in schools?

Doubt it, nobody really gives a rip about attorneys anyway. They are adults, if they don't want to protect themselves, so be it. Poor choice on their part this time.

There's always "someone there with a legal concealed weepon" at these events, who do you think called 911, and directd the first responders from a safe vantage point across the street. These legal concealers don't get in the mix for 3 reason,(or more). 1. Law suits. 2. NOT THEIR PROBLEM! 3. Don't want to risk a fire fight with the first responders.

Can't wait for the next mass shooting where EVERYONE is armed with concealed weapons! Should increase the death toll about sixfold with all those morons blowing each other's brains out during the panic. Oh, well, it's just collateral damage, so long as the gun worshippers can all have as many of any type of assault rifle that they want. As Wayne LaPierre said,(as he threw his hands up in the air) there's really nothing you can do about it.

I agree, and the news media keep giving these mental patients their 15 minutes of fame so the copy cats are going after their 15 minutes of fame. It is strange that all of these mental patients are now, all of a sudden, coming out in the open and shooting up schools, movies and church since Obama is going after the guns. History repeats itself - Hitler - Germany.

Thank GOD there was an armed American citizen in the building ready to use his gun in self-defense from lawyers, otherwise MEDIATION might have occurred.

Here's a hint, Mr. Clueless - shootings are news, always have been, and always will be.

Everyone who kills others with a gun is not a "mental patient," as much as you'd like to pretend they are. Mr. Obama is not "going after the guns," and comparing him to Hitler is un-American and slanderous.

Shut up if you've got nothing intelligent to say, fool.

Yeah, I've been waiting for one of those attemted mass killings where a brave gun owner or three blows away the bad guy and saves lives.

When's that going to happen, I wonder?

Funny that the NRA are attacking "crazy people" making the case for background checks for mental health as well as felons. At the same time not knowing what the definition of crazy is gonna be. ADHD, Bipolar, and about ten others Mental illness will disqualify many from obtaining guns. Once these Inflated numbers of card carring members are brought down, then Gun regulation can be achieved.
