    Morality is different for different people. Legal is what the people say the laws are.

    Fine, you don't like freedom. Zeig Heil.

    The gun control freaks think more laws that we don't enforce will fix everything.

    People are so blown out of proportion of 26 deaths while ignoring that during that same time period Sunday 11/6/17:
    26 people shot in Texas
    109 people died on Sunday in car accidents across the USA and
    2,464 babies killed by abortion that Sunday.

    But which event had 24 hour 5 days or more coverage? WHY are guns and not the shooters the target of MSM?

    Why don't car accidents that kill 109 people EVERY DAY not the 24/5 day be the topic? or 2,464 babies a day that are killed?

    People your priorities are so screwed up by the extremely BIASED and truly ignorant MSM!

    The problem is not guns. It is not cars. It is not abortions.

    It is the very simple issue that the MSM blow these events WAY out of proportion!
    26 people shot in church. Sad and despicable YES!
    But why all the coverage? Why continually making a BIG deal out of 26 people dying in less then 26 minutes when during that same day
    109 people were killed in car accidents and 2,464 babies murdered!
    Where is the perspective here?

    NO what we need to do is tell the MSM enough of this blowing out of proportion these events and guess what?
    Those mentally ill idiots that do this won't be doing it! They won't see their name in 15 minutes of fame!
    That's the cause because here is what happened in prior days:
    from this source: https://www.globalresearch.ca/mass-shootings-in-america-a-historical-review/5355990
    In 37 years from 1980s to 2017 342 deaths Mass shooting deaths.
    And all you people are so distraught by 342 deaths while in the meantime:

    1,524,982 people killed by cars since 1980! List of motor vehicle deaths in U.S. by year - Wikipedia
    36,649,884 abortions since 1980! Abortion statistics in the United States - Wikipedia
    PEOPLE!!!! Where is your sense of proportion???

    I never said we should have no laws.

    I said laws do not prevent anyone from committing a crime. All any law does is define the unacceptable behavior and set punishments for those who break the laws.

    You want laws but you do not want to enforce them with the appropriate harsh punishments

    But you people say since one person can kill with a gun them no one should have guns.

    So at least be consistent and apply that to all laws.

    One person might drive drunk and kill someone so no one can drink. etc

    You revere society don't you?

    I prefer to revere individual rights.

    No one is dying because I happen to own firearms but you don't get that do you?

    LOL! - The shooter had already shot everyone in the church. Some survivors were shot 5 times. Who knows how many times he shot those who died. He was done, left the church & leaving in his truck when the NRA dud shot at him from behind. The shooter shot himself to commit suicide.

    One of the largest concepts of a proper Society is Personal Responsibility. That includes taking responsibility for those under your care (in your home, at yoir business, etc...). That' why the only places I willingly go unarmed are places that provide armed and trained security.
