From another message board I use:

"On the subject of Ted Cruz, I was once in a Q&A with some leading US CEOs, White House lawyers, heads of business groups and the like. This was early 2016 when Cruz was going against Trump.

One of them said: "I went to college with Ted Cruz. I've considered him a personal friend for more than half my life and I know him very well. That is why I say he should not be allowed anywhere near political power."

And that's his FRIEND talking. "

For me there is no reason why an ordinary American citizen needs or has a right to own a rapid fire weapon of any kind and it baffles me why the Constitution cannot be modified to reflect this and other issues like firmer back ground checks, better record keeping, making gun owning parents more responsible for keeping guns out of the hands of their children, banning the production and sale of ghost guns etc etc.

However gun ownership, laws and the gun lobby are not the only issues as there are states like New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine with very lax gun laws but low gun crime although these states have lower populations.  

The vast majority of Americans want tighter gun laws but for whatever reason Congress prevents it, the whole problem needs some fresh thought, fresh ideas and quick.

We were in Dallas Texas a few years ago  to see a rock concert. Sign on the entrance said no concealed hand guns, in other words you could carry your gun in your holster as long it was on show, and they did. That was reassuring !!!!!

Before the concert we went around a shopping mall and into a department store. Guns and ammunition openly on sale as if you were buying a pair of trainers. Gobsmacked.

More recently saw an American TV interview where the recommendation to reduce gun deaths  was arming more people . Unbelievable.

The guns in the hands of the police who waited 40 minutes outside the classroom didn't help anyone, even when the 911 calls from the children inside the classroom were still reaching emergency services operators. 

There is no easy answer and there certainly isn't a quick fix.  Banning alcohol didn't work, how is the ban on knives doing in the UK?

That's funny because not only did I not "back the gun nuts" - I did the exact opposite and quite clearly stated it.

 

I also predicted that this kind of accusation would occur

 

So you can ask whatever you want as long as you do so honestly and in good faith. Your current post is not honest and is not good faith and therefore I will ignore it.

 

 

What point were you trying to make by asking “how was the shooter” stopped then? 
sounds like something a pro gun nut  would say tbh. sure plenty would agree with that

I'm sure there are too. Lots of bad faith operators about currently.

 

Now tell me though, why can't you answer the question?
