All the gun control in the world can't stop a criminal or a nut.

That won't help. If you really want a gun and intend to do harm no law can stop you.

We have to change how people THINK. That's much harder. Why are these people so disaffected? Why do they feel that this is their only recourse? Their way to "get even", as it were. Underneath the shooting and killing there HAS to be a huge amount of hate and anger, to want to harm so many people. These are ALWAYS played out for massive destruction, and they almost always intend this to be their "last stand", since so many of them either kill themselves or allow themselves to be killed by law enforcement.

When did it become almost "OK" to do this? We're so numbed by it that it nearly doesn't register on our outrage meter anymore. And the perps aren't worried about remorse or punishment, because they usually don't get out alive and have no intention of doing so.

What are they SO upset about that they are ready to kill AND die themselves? We really need to look into the motivations of these people, not the method they use.

Look, an armed guard at the Synogauge (sp) may have deterred the guy from shooting up THAT particular place, but he would have found another. Are we ALL going to carry guns like in the Old West? I don't think I wanna live in that place.

Take guns from law abiding citizens who should be give concealed carry licenses and let the leftist crazies have all the illegal weapons they want while taking bribes from big pharmaceutical companies that are creating drugs that drive people mad.

I am a gun owner, I love to target practice and I love to hunt, but we have to do something about the loss of innocent life due to the misuse of firearms. I am of the thinking that it is not the guns fault but the disturbed individual using its fault. That said, we are at epidemic place with gun violence and have to do something. My first thought on that is that there should be an intense background check on the sale of automatic weapons at gun shows as well as retail stores. I am against any attempt to band the sale of firearms but we have to have some sensible way to lesson the chance of unstable people being able to commit these terrible acts.
If anyone else has real ideas on this subject we would like to hear them.

Automatic weapons already have background checks and they're strictly regulated.

Sometimes - actually quite a few times - these wingnuts don't even HAVE a criminal or even civil background that would reveal ANYTHING. So a better background check might NOT help.

My view - if you want a gun, even a few, that's OK, if you can pass what we have on the books now. If you want 20 automatic weapons, I think we (society as a whole) have a right to ask you why you want them.

It is my understanding that if you buy a gun at a gun show there is no background check?

Actually, there are and they're done by both licensed/unlicensed dealers. That includes private sales. It doesn't mean they're done all the time (private sakes), but for the most part, they are.

if they are that's great, but there has to be some kind of solution.

If you buy from a dealer there is a Back ground check. If it is a private transaction,no check required. But mart practice would be to check driver's license and record sale in your gun log-if you're smart enough to keep one.

There is already intense background checks on the sale and ownership of automatic weapons. I don't know of a retail store that carries automatic weapons.

My suggestion, as many have said, would be to enforce our current laws. They simply aren't with any regularity.

An apparent recurring theme on many of these POS shooters is the FBI failed to follow up on multiple credible threats posted on their social media pages, local LE failed to follow up or report on credible threats these shooters made or reported them to NICS, mental illness counselors failed to report his illness to NICS that could have prevented these shooters from getting a weapon legally, school administrators failed to report his threats & other diversionary programs are to blame as well. But only the NRA is blamed?
