The tool used is far less to blame than the one who wields it. To blame guns for such an undeniable tragedy is tantamount to blaming a victim of rape for having worn too short a skirt. If this creature who was capable of such acts he would have sought out other means to accomplish his goal. Please be patient and find out what might have triggered these actions. We have enough speculation going on as it is. Just my humble opinion.

I agree completely.

Well done, Mr. President.

Since this is politics, of course...

Neal Boortz, who normally does not have a lot of positive things to say about President Obama, posted this:

"Obama did a good job with his statement. Genuine and emotional. This day he deserved the title of "President.""

I didn't know he made one. I'll have to look for it.

Anyone have a quick link?

It seems that the weapon this guy had was a .223 caliber hunting rifle. The only gun control law that would have banned it is a total ban on guns.

It doesn't hold a lot of bullets. He actually brought 4 guns. When one ran out of bullets, he used another.

Arguments about assault weapons etc surrounding this are not relevant.

Not so fun fact:

One of the colleges I consult for has an educational center on the site of the McDonald's shooting.

Try again. I just tried and it worked. 3 spaces to remove.

As for "No reply to the question of how often automatic, semi-automatic, whatever you may call them -- say guns capable of more than 6 shots without reloading -- are necessary to prevent crimes. "

We've debunked this dumb argument 100 times, but what's one more?

How many mass-shootings in the United States have involved an automatic weapon?

I'll answer for you. Two. One in the 1970s, and one in 1984 at a McDonalds in California. It's been nearly 30 years. Many others have happened in other countries, however.

Meanwhile, every able-bodied adult male in Switzerland has a machine gun.

It's not an insult at all to impute that someone has no experience with guns, explosives, nuclear waste, anthrax, or anything else with no purpose but destruction.

And thanks for the corroboration, az, that if another fool at a stop light pulls a gun and waves it at you because he didn't like your driving, you might also pull a gun and wave it. And there are 2 more "crime preventions with a gun" statistics.

Just for a little bit of context, a man in China stabbed 22 children in a school yesterday.

Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Guns just allow them to do it faster...
