Quote: In this case, the shooter did NOT have a criminal background. So he would have (And might have, for all that I, we, or anybody else knows.) passed a background check. There are problems with gun control, but the NRA didn't have anything to do with this, they're just an easy target for politicians.
I guess you totally missed my point, which isn't about background checks but about eliminating most access to guns, that is, removing the Second Amendment as it's now construed.
That sounds nearly impossible to do, and usually whenever people in mass are told NOT to do something, they do it. That's usually why gun sales go up when they try to enact new gun laws (As they did under Obama.), or after shootings. It's a great dream, but it''s not going to happen. Also, didn't this guy get bombs as well? This is clearly not just a gun problem here.
