The report I saw on Fox news this afternoon stated that both guns used in the massacre were purchased legally, from a VA gun dealer. Apparently the shooter passed the NICS background check. The purchase was called "routine".

I'd like the Brady bunch to tell me which law prevents someone who legally purchases a gun, passes a background check, then decides to go on a shooting rampage. There are no laws that will prevent this type of trajedy. Although the twisted brains at the BC think they're are, only in their fairy tale world.

Why should millions of lawful gun owners be punished for the actions of a single deranged lunatic?

Yes and while the Roanoke Times was outing CCW holders the gun dealer who sold the guns was Roanake Firearms.

What's your point with that comparison?
You appear to think them related somehow other than geography.

They put bloombergs pals on and showed undercover video of his PI's buying guns in VA. In the same story NY blamed VA as the main source for guns used in crime in NY and NYC. I had to remind myself that throwing things at my tv would not help the situation....

Uhhh, you're going to do better than that if you expect to win any arguments. The anti-gun people are going to have you for lunch.

The only point we have in our favor is: Allowing students to CCW may have prevented this tragedy, either by deterrent or force.

Personally, I'd accept a mental health background check, which our Mr. South Korean would be bound to fail. He was the enemy; he was not one of us.

Hey, this has barely gotten started, and it's already wandering off topic too much.

Legal purchase; no denial of that; that's about it.
