All-purpose gun legislation thread

If only the victim and camera woman could also have been armed here to prevent this tragedy.

NSFW warning, hairy nude man-boobs all over the place.


#5948

It’s not guns! It’s mental illness! The Glock 17 9mm purchased legally three months ago by the shooter has nothing to do with it!


#5949

I guess we have so many shootings now we can’t even track two of them at the same time at the national level. Today is all about Vegas though…


#5950

11 victims and one sheriff deputy killed.

Feels like a shooting like this is barely news anymore. I saw a line in the story that the shooter looked middle eastern, so I’m sure the usual suspects will suddenly call for law changes (for immigration, of course, not gun control).


#5951

Damn. I saw a headline earlier that said only a couple people were wounded and I just assumed it was a bar fight that got out of control or something.


#5952

Am I too early for the standard GOP thoughts an prayer routine?


#5953

Some info on the suspected shooter:


#5954

Mental health talks already… is he, well…


#5955

The suspected gunman Ian David Long was on active duty with the US Marine Corps from August 2008 to March 2013, according to Department of Defense records.

At a news conference, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Long, 28, used a .45 caliber Glock during last night’s shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.

Thank goodness it’s not terrorism.


#5957

I think the only way we’ll get some progress on reasonable gun control is if a good old boy white guy shoots up Fox News HQ for some reason. Would have to be pretty devastating to have any effect I assume.

HA, just kidding, that would just result in even more gun sales.


#5958

Already all the usual horseshit out there about how he was a converted muslim, etc etc. Infowars is on it!


#5959

Armed guards in every bar and grill!


#5960

Guards to guard the guards.


#5961

Until every gun has its own gun, we won’t be safe.


#5962

Exactly. America will not be safe until every college kid out for a night of bar crawling is packing heat, and every 70+ year old saying prayers at temple has a shotgun by their side.


#5963

Even worse, the usual suspects saying that now is not the time to talk about gun safety.


#5964

#5965

“Worst mass shooting in … 11 days.”


#5966

But it was a white dude, so it’s not news.
