    To start with there should have been a period of mourning before the MSNBC radicals wanted the govt to take another liberty away from us, but no chance with that bunch.
    To start with this event and those like them such as a suicide bomber in the middle east as well as 9-11 are acts of terror
    Home or abroad

    What the liberal mind cannot grasp is you cannot legislate morality. As I understand it the guns where his mothers?
    It is against the law to steal, a fact I am sure no one has mentioned

    Simply put there where so many laws in place to prevent this event all ready. Limiting the ability for any of us to legally owning a fire arm is not going to stop any of this

    We have over 300 million people in this great country. out of that about 3 of these nut jobs a year snap and as a suicide bomber in the middle east does, kills as many harmless and innocent people as they can.

    God please be with these families in there time of need

    The liberal mind?

    Tell it to those who want to ban abortions, same-sex marriage and keep marijuana illegal.

    Government cannot legislated morality, but it CAN legislate punishment for immoral actions. Murder is a case in point.

    Cant legislate morality? Then why, today, a Sunday in South Carolina, can I not buy beer, liquor, weed or have an abortion? But, I can buy an AK47.

    who said anything about punishment?
    I stated that the govt cannot stop people from doing events by taking away more liberties from the good guys and gals
    You claim to be the thread killer, yet this is your first with me?

    there is nothing in the constitution that protects your right to buy any of those things except the rifle
    BYW it is not an AK47
    It is an exact semi auto replica
    The AK is fully auto and without a special permit you cannot purchase one

    And you made it political with the ‘liberal mind’ nonsense, leaving yourself open to attack where your fellow conservatives attempt to legislate morality with issues such as abortion and same-sex couples’ access to marriage.

    You put your own thread off track with the very first post.
