The way some are reacting about they want more gun control..... I wonder if by the photos showed on NBC with Cho holding a claw hammer, will they now go after a law to fill out FFL papers, and go thru a background check when you are at Sears buying a hammer?? I realize that we all would like to stop tagedies like this from happening, but we gotta take the time, think logically, and then decide. If he could not have gotten hold of the guns, then obviously, by the evidence of pictures, he was prepared to use a claw hammer, or knife. Folks would have still died.
What really confuses me, is that,... If you are a person, so down and out, you have exhausted all of your avenues of wanting to try to live, then why take innocent folks with you? Do yourself, and then we only have deal with only one corpse.

I don't think we will hear them calling for banning hammers anytime soon. Though with the logic they employ they should. This morning I watched a news account as they carried on about these horrible "high capacity clips" that allow you to "spray bullets". These folks must think you can only get one magazine per handgun and can't do a reload the way they carry on.
There is a lot of ignorance being displayed on the TV screen. Including by many policy makers in Congress. Not a comforting thing. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
The important thing is that we all call our Representatives and Senators and demand they not further restrict our gun rights. You can use this link to contact them.
