    It's already been shown that gun free zones are often chosen as targets by those wishing to commit mayhem and misery.

    so when is the next person that loses their sanity and does the next one? son, it's what you need. You will never make a gun stop firing when a human has a finger on the trigger. So fix the human. can you?

    Actually MY guess would be that they would argue the Constitutionality of the call to outlaw things like Bump Stocks. I mean, these are the guys who have argued the right to have armor piercing rounds because the constitution protects our right to own guns.

    Here's some "food for thought" about the NRA.....

    In its early days, the National Rifle Association was a grassroots social club that prided itself on independence from corporate influence.

    While that is still part of the organization's core function, today less than half of the NRA's revenues come from program fees and membership dues.

    The bulk of the group's money now comes in the form of contributions, grants, royalty income, and advertising, much of it originating from gun industry sources.

    Since 2005, the gun industry and its corporate allies have given between $20 million and $52.6 million to it through the NRA Ring of Freedom sponsor program. Donors include firearm companies like Midway USA, Springfield Armory Inc, Pierce Bullet Seal Target Systems, and Beretta USA Corporation. Other supporters from the gun industry include Cabala's, Sturm Rugar & Co, and Smith & Wesson.

    so again, I've never seen a gun kill someone by itself. And Until someone can predict when sane men go insane, there is absolutely no way to stop this kind of thing. I'm always open for a discussion, but the gun isn't the problem.
