"Being the good guy with a gun is a selfish hero fantasy for so many 'sheepdogs'. It's not about keeping the flock safe.

If it were, they'd be focused instead on policy solutions that would stop mass killings before they occur. Like restricting access to guns."

-Brandon Freeman, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And, a Texas resident and gun owner.

The good guy with a gun who stopped Kelley from killing more innocent people is also a NRA instructor.

1 - No one should own an automatic or semi automatic weapon outside of military/law enforcement. Period

2 - Tougher vetting before gun purchases

Only compromise we can hope for. It would surely limit the carnage; because part 1 tempers the inherent flaws in any vetting system.

I guess you have never hunted or owned a hunting rifle or shotgun. Like a Browning humpback shotgun. Or a Browning BAR. Or a Remington 742. Look them up. Those are all semi-automatic weapons. Your ignorance of what is and isn't a military/law enforcement weapon is quite pervasive in the general populace.

No ignorance; poor editing. Meant period in there. No automatic/semiautomatics. Period - and I know not what fun is what. Military/law enforcement only exception allowed to own.

You're right.

You don't know how fun it is to target shoot with an AR.

That depends on what you are using for a target.

Our dear friends on the left keep screaming about “gun control legislation” yet not one of them or their politicians, also running off at the mouth about gun control legislation ever propose any such legislation.

Mental health issue?

After Sandy Hook Obama went running to the TV cameras and said, “his administration would fix the counties broken mental health system”. Obama then prompt did nothing.

Posting empty rhetoric accomplishes nothing. Nothing being the standard of the far-left loons.
Put up or shut up.

The gunman killed himself.

It wasn't the "good guy with a gun" who did the killing.

99.99% of shooters don't use people as targets.

So mass shootings are the price of the second amendment. Cool.

And, pray tell, where did you get that from the conversation.

Go back to smoking your rope until you can make sense of what you are typing.

It WAS the good guy with a gun that stopped the killing.

You do know that goes against equal protection under the law? Read the Constitution and see what it says about how the people should be armed.

Also, learn what the difference is between semi-auto and automatic and assault weapons.

Again? You know that this was a piece by AnyTown, a purely anti-gun group, and proven false.

I've read every word of the constitution many times and nowhere does it specifically mention semi-auto and automatic weapons. At the time the constitution was written "arms" were single shot black powder riffles. I have no problem allowing almost anyone from owning those, although I still don't think mentally ill people should have them either.

If equal protection under the law must be extended to mentally ill people owning assult weapons, then it might be time to revisit the entire second ammendment.
