    This was, of course, predictable. Never waste a tragedy.

    I'll reserve judgment until I see what she introduces, but I think any type of gun legislation passing the Republican controlled House is unlikely, even after this.

    Personally, I'm more alarmed by Bob Brady's intended legislation.

    Such a law is just flat out unconstitutional and opens the door to an unimaginable amount of abuse by the government concerning the political speech of the American people. Again, I sincerely doubt such a law will be able to pass the House.

    On behalf of Pennsylvania, I apologize for Robert Fascist Brady.

    What do you suggest needs to be done (if anything) to keep guns out of the hands of those intent in using guns to harm innocents? Keep the image of the nine year old daughter, sister and grandchild killed in this latest horrific slaughter when (if) you reply.

    Best of luck with both of those.

    Doesn't matter what law you pass, if no one pays it any attention.

    Not asking me but I will chime in, we need one more gun law ona a national level prohibiting any one who is placed in a mental hospital or care under the Baker Act to not be allowed to posess firearms until his Doctor says he is fit ie mentally stable enough to do so again.
    The definition of being forcibly treated under the Baker act is you have to be a threat to yourself and or others for it to happen. So why should you be allowed to posess firearms?

    I know for a fact that there is no national nor state law in many states prohibing the mentally unstable form posessing guns.

    outside of that I think we have gun laws pretty well covered.
