    LOL wut?

    You confuse technique or style, which really cannot be regulated with additional devices which can.

    But the real issue here is -- once again a mentally ill faggot, who is in treatment, who has severe emotional control problems, and is on medication for it, lets his/her mental illness explode and takes it out on random people. Because, MUH BUTTHURTZ or MUH HI-SCORE. I'm willing to bet which his doctor knew something of the severe mental imbalance of this guy much like the Colorado movie theater shooter. (and so many others)

    The solution is not banning this item or that or the other, it's keeping the people who want to do people harm in a place where they cannot enact such a plan, cannot obtain means or devices to do so and are monitored hourly.

    So yes, they need to be institutionalized or imprisoned and there is where they need to stay. Forever. None of this, I did my 18-25 years on a "bullshit" charge when I was seventeen, and now I'm out and about to pick up another firearm. Three strikes and your out? LOL no. One strike, depending on the nature of the crime and you're out. One strike depending on the kind and severity of the illness and you're out. It may not prevent the initial crime, but it will prevent all subsequent crimes afterworlds. (Which would actually reduce the overall crime rate.) A convict who is convicted of a violent felony, on minimum commits four more felonies, majority of which are violent.

    Which would keep individual rights intact and do away with this ridiculous banning bullshit, keep society safer and punish the ones responsible with a sentence which actually means something.

    Most of the crime in Merica is caused by the same 8-10% of the population (individuals - literally the same people) due to of the revolving door of parole.

    Just because someone does mass murder doesn't automatically make them mentally ill. I don't think Hitler and the 911 hijackers were mentally ill.. in fact really smart and evil. Turns out the note the was seen in the photo was calculations for bullet trajectory, so he could improve accuracy. This SOB knew what he was doin.

    TEXTWALL WARNING
    tl;dr For the "smartest guy on EDF," you're not that smart.

    No. There are checkboxes on certain forms for certain states which specially address that. Nevertheless, checkboxes don't stop one from lying. In many states, which if one answers in which he or she were institutionalized/incarcerated that answer will prevent him or her from legally owing a firearm. This only stops them from legally owning a firearm. Background checks only stop the legal ownership. They do nothing about the illegal ownership of firearms which are responsible for the overwhelming majority of crime. Period. Criminals by definition will not adhere to the law. The mentally ill will not adhere to the law. So the law is fucking useless.

    The problem with the law you reference is it did not address how to absolutely prevent a mental patient from obtaining weapons, but that is how it was sold. There are laws now, as you know, in which certain individuals are not allowed to own weapons. And yet somehow they end up with firearms. A law banning a certain person or a certain type of person from owning a weapon is nothing more than a "feels good man" type of law. It is completely fucking useless. The only successful way shown on how to prevent persons from obtaining a weapon, using a weapon, or weaponing something like a vehicle, chemical or corrosive liquid is incarceration or institutionalization. That is the point. I don't know how to make that any more clear.

    About the law, with the way the law was written it would have meant anyone diagnosed of any mental affliction, such as depression due to loss of a child, divorce, death, etc., etc., etc., would be forever banned from owning firearms and makes no separation in the degrees of illness or type and manner of illness. Mental illness would then be supercharged with a negative stigmatism and would prevent people from getting help which they would need. The diagnosis of mental illness would then become a blanket term which would restrict people from their right to defend themselves -- forever. You really don't think the power-mad progressives wouldn't take advantage of that? In the US the field of psychology is run and populated by extreme progressive liberals. Most importantly, being mentally ill doesn't remove your right to defend yourself within a society which has nefarious people within it. Being old doesn't remove your right to defend yourself. Being of a certain race doesn't remove your right to defend yourself. Being of a certain sex doesn't remove the right to defend yourself. Being an ex-convict doesn't remove the right to defend yourself. Only death removes the right to defend yourself. However, to realistically control who owns a weapon or not, or how a person could use them depends on absolute control of the individual.

    Again, there are reports which state this guy was on Valium for anxiety, which is a pretty confusing. There are better medications available for such a diagnosis. You cannot mandate or force someone to take their prescription, even if that prescription is to prevent non-social behavior like shooting up a concert.

    The R. Congress threw the responsibility back to the states and refused to make it a FEDERAL law.

    That was endorsed by the ACLU by the way because of the way mental disorder was determined by the courts.

    They won't mention her name. Chances are she's a former/current pornstar.

    Yeah i'm guessing she didnt advertise her services in the back of the yellow pages. And for her to charge that much for a throw, i'm guessing shes got ho pedigree. Knows the biz and how to make money in it.

    Probably porn.
