    jesus anti gunners will find any excuse to twist anything to their agenda. in this case. i bet she and him where both addicts probably meth so who cares. judging by his face he is pure white trash, got that skid bone structure. stop blaming objects for the actions of people. if that argument is valid you need to be out trying to ban cars and fast food. also did you know anyone involved? if not its not your problem and you should not cared anyhow. thats a mental illness right there. caring what happened to a total stranger 20 some years ago.

    A spear kills. An arrow from a bow kills. A sword kills. All weapons designed to take down prey. Man is a skilled predator. Perhaps the best. A gun is just one more hand tool in his bag of tricks. So shoot at a target all day long. For what. To practice taking down prey. Murder is a bad idea but none the less man is a predator. Perhaps the greatest killer of all time. And guns are his weapon of choice nowadays. So, sell more guns to a known killer with a long track record: Man.

    Guns are dangerous. They kill. There are also many people out there with mental issues. Tragedy follows.

      To stop an argument before it starts,I have never seen a gun jump up, go running out of the house, and kill some thing. I have seen people kill things using a tool(gun). Just like using a hammer to pound in a nail.

      Guns don’t kill, people do! Some guy just knifed and killed a bunch of people the other day in California using a knife.

      I do think that military-style rifles should be limited in magazine size. For those that want the military-style gun to own, then they should be regulated to an armory (non-governmental, of their choosing) where you go check them out to use and then check them back in when you are done.

      The idea that we need AK-47 style weapons on the streets for everyday use is unnecessary.

      Yes, I belong to the NRA.
