Anyways, I just found out that a friend of mine named Natalie was shot in the face. This really sucks.
I just demonstrated to you that it's not false at all...

This is a useless argument so I'll just leave it at that.

Sucks about your friend Steve, really sorry to hear that. Was she one of the fatalities or will she make it in the end?

The shooter had 10 guns available to him.

In that light I would like to pose a question (without changing the facts): would an AWB have stopped this shooting?

Every single one of the guns he used could ultimately be deemed illegal. Does it matter? Does legality change anything?
I don't know but they should make mass killings illegal too while they're at it.

They should ban assault weapons and any gun painted black.

You can make a working weapon with a 3D printer and a small amount of time. It's not that hard these days.

She's in the hospital in stable condition. I think she will make it. This is easier to stomach than the death of my ex-gf's sister in the San Bernardino terrorist shooting.

Yes, with vans right?

I'm trying to understand how your opinion of gun control came to diverge from other gun owners I've heard. You're the only one I've heard make the connection between confiscating guns and lower availability to criminals. Just curious.

Of course, it's a well known fact that every deranged person can MacGyver a gun together from beer cans.

Instead of banning guns, the government should issue bikes. Bike riding makes everything better.

I'm theorizing that Paddock wanted to kill Trump supporters and cause a backlash against gun ownership.

Win win.

per ABC news.... http://abcnews.go.com/US/guns-loaded...ry?id=50228093

"A total of 42 guns were found in the suspected Las Vegas shooter's hotel room and house, police said Monday night.

Las Vegas Police Department Assistant Sheriff Todd R. Fasulo said that 23 guns were found in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino room where suspected shooter Stephen Paddock fired into a crowd, and 19 were discovered out of his Mesquite, Nevada home.

Multiple loaded high-capacity magazines were found in the hotel room, law enforcement sources said earlier on Monday.

Among the guns and ammunition police found the in the room being used by Paddock were some high-powered rifles considered capable of penetrating police armor. There were also some handguns in the room.

The additional ammunition indicates that the shooting, which left 59 people dead and injured over 500, could have been worse, had police not intervened when they did. Police believe that Paddock took his own life.

A modified bump stock rifle was also found, which allows a gun to simulate rapid automatic gunfire. Law enforcement officials are still in the process of examining firearms to determine if they were capable of firing automatically."

yikes....

2. Oh noe. I am in the same demography as the killer!

Apparently this is legal, because the trigger is actually pulled for every shot, thus not technically being "automatic."

someone educate me........ why have 19 guns with you? whats the point?

why not have 1 with thousands of rounds? in regards to trying to kill alot of people....not for the sake of having alots of guns

is it because of the difficultly to keep reloading? jamming?

It's a question, but take your time and ponder it over.
