    it is good enough.

    And the whole flawed argument that every gun owner is some sort of mass killer in waiting is pure bullshit.

    Really? Because, honestly, that sounds like a pretty good description of Stephan Paddock... everyone says what a normal guy he was, until he went off and shot hundreds of people.

    And that could be said of anyone regarding any crime then couldn't it?

    I mean you're a perfectly law abiding guy until you rape someone right?

    It's only a matter of time after all you have everything you need to commit rape don't you?

    You can't punish a person for committing a crime BEFORE the crime is committed.

    Very true. A few years back there was a mad rapist in Medina. Ohio which is a city outside of Cleveland. It's a very beautiful community that was once a small town that built up as years went on.

    He struck several times before he was finally caught. My cousin who lives out that way called to tell me about it. He has his own remodeling business. He told me that the Medina rapist was his roofer that he sub-contracted all his roofing work to. He was a guy in his 40's, never been in trouble with the law, hard working family man complete with wife and kids. They would go out to dinner now and then, and there were times when the roofer needed something for a job, and my cousin told him to just go to his house and his wife would let him in. Never so much as winked at her.

    So what makes you think he bought all his guns, ammo and bump stocks from the same person yet alone the same store? Even if your little dream were true and they refused sale to him, do you think that this guy would have said "Oh well, I can't get any guns legally, I'll just have to give up that mass murder idea?"

    Help me please, I am confused. One day nobody but nobody on the left likes, supports or trusts law enforcement. Yet today they want more gun laws or even an attempt to grab all firearms. If you don't trust Police & the system, Why do you want the same Government to have more power and control over its subjects? If gun laws work, why are the cities with the strictest laws the same ones with the highest murder rates? Why did NOBODY take action on the HIPA laws (Hillery's) that kept officials from sharing Medical info before the VA Tech tragedy? (Sorry but like Benghazi that blood will always be on her hands in my view). I'm not about to defend the RNC leadership in Congress but the Bost Marathon blood is squarely on the DNC. The mental health and big Pharma are definitely issues on Sandy Hook, Columbine & the CO Theater. In none of those incidents did a firearm load itself, or a bomb build itself.

    Intellectual curiosity also has me still searching for the video where any firearm (inanimate object) loaded itself and harmed anyone...where can I find it?

    At the end of the day, it is a LACK OF RESPECT OF LIFE PERIOD, driven by pure evil.

    History is full of notorious examples, Jack the Ripper, The Boston Stranger, BT Killer, let me throw out another one...nurses
    They have been several nurses in the US that were serial killers usually via syringes. There were more in Europe. We're talking HUNDREDS of people murdered...where's the outrage? Where are the regulations?

    You said the DC sniper was sold arms that the seller knew he would use for nefarious reasons, and Congress voted to allow that. It's a lie as usual from you.

    What the law did was stop legislatures with your mentality from suing gun sellers and manufacturers out of business. In essence that would stop all sales of firearms in the country because the liability would be too high, either that or make it too expensive for anybody to afford a firearm.

    I guess you could call the law "Stop Commies In Their Tracks" law.

    Right, then maybe you should get a note from a shrink to buy a car as well. How about knives? How about sharp gardening tools?

    Sorry, but I passed all government standards for qualifications. I have a CDL. I have a CCW. I'm TSA certified. I've been looked inside and out by nearly every government agency possible. It's people like your that should worry.

    No, but hopefully by that point, a light would go on and say, "Hey, this guy has enough guns to start the zombie apocalypse, someone needs to check that out."
