    Here we go again with more gun laws or speech laws.
    Why do the left keep trying to make more gun laws instead of getting right to the problem,which is this guy has a mental problem.
    It is not a gun problem, it's a mental disorder and gun laws will not keep guns out of their hands. They need to be sent to a Mental Health facility.
    He is a schizophrenic.
    If we had Health Centers all across the nation, the college he went to could have gotten him into one of those places and away from the public.
    Pima College has, as all schools and colleges, social workers and psychologist's.
    If congress passed a law for schools, college's,hospital's so on and so forth to have more clout at assesing these type of mental problems, they could be sent to theses type of facalities and have gotten him away from harming anyone.
    In other words, Make a law to protect the public from the mentality ill.
    Not gun laws ,not speech laws.

    If he had shot his insane words at these people you may have a point.

    he shot a bullet from a gun so your point is kinda dead

    Here we go. He was still able to get that gun because he was able to pass the stringent gun law's, that we already have. He had done nothing before this shooting, that is why he was able to buy that gun. Had he been sent to a mental facaility in JUNE 2010, HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BUY THAT GUN.

    It's quite a spectacle to see those who were clamoring for racial profiling and banning mosques suddenly circling the wagons around their own set of pet civil rights.

    The answer is enacting stricter security at political events. If somebody wants to kill a specific target, along with others-they're going to get their hands on the firearms to carry out their plan regardless. Making it harder to get firearms wont stop them from doing that.

    I don't see what's wrong with not allowing people to bring guns to public political events-they already ban guns in some public places as it is (schools, airports, courthouses, etc.)-I went to Times Square for new years and we got searched 5-6 times easily.

    Anyways the bottom line is the only thing to blame was the person who decided to pull the trigger. Security would be much more efficient in helping to prevent events such as this, and wouldn't effect Americans in other walks of life, as making new gun laws would.

    It's not just the rhetoric about guns and speech.

    On Morning Joe today that Indian (or whatever) clown whose name I can never remember was bemoaning our entire society in general as the cause. Some people are just so friggin' stupid. There are kooks in the world and every now and then one does something terrible. Period.
