GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE. . . .

yeah, sure, NRA. If he had a knife, it's doubtful anybody
would have been killed. . .

If he'd made his first stop the international terminal and El Al he's most likely been the only one terminated.

I'm afraid that's exactly where our country's heading, TGT.

What I don't get is with all the tools all over the airports how did this go on for so long?
Or are many as useless as they appear? And they seem so proficient at shooting kids with toy guns but they can't take out a real shooter.

He was trained by TSA wasn't he? It was workplace violence from what was reported earlier. He was able to easily get through security.

Sorry up front for the gun thread - no issue with the debate.

Skip's co-worker dropped his GF at 7AM as well.

Worried more about the spawning and resultant "Grand Theft Auto" generation

Because the gun lobby want you to think that more guns are the answer. They sell guns to the criminals and the lunatics then tell the sheep that only owning a gun will save them from the criminals and lunatics.
I just can't wait to see how they try to explain this one away. "What we need is even more armed guards to protect the armed guards?"

Eddie, you are an idiot. A gun dealer can't sell to a criminal or a mental patient. Hasn't been able to for years. Quit blathering.

I have read a dozen articles in which they call the weapon an "assault rifle". Nowhere do I see any mention of the brand, caliber, etc. Have we reached the point where media hears a couple of hysterical witnesses say it "was an assault rifle" and the investigative journalism stops there?

Also, the mayor needs to check himself. Stupid comments like "100 rds that could have killed everybody in the terminal"? These "officials" need to stop acting like hysterical teenage girls and act like leaders once in a while. They just engage in the blathering like the citizens they are supposed to be leading.

Does it matter to the dead what make, model and caliber killed them?
Call it an "assault rifle", call it a " thunder stick" WTF?
Why the desperate effort to blather semantics?

'Cuz gun-nutz just want to do anything they want, with any gun, to anyone, at anytime, and if you don't like it, you're an anti-Constitutional commie.

If we weren't talking about guns, most would consider such behavior to be childishly myopic & self-oriented.

You guys are fiddling away while Rome burns. A crazy guy shot some people. So why is LAX still shut down? Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

how many nightly shootings across the country? And they all get about thirty seconds of news coverage if that. It HAS to be "sensational" for the news to get behind it- so they can further agendas of the owners. And when those come along they milk em for all they can get. City streets and ghettos arent "sensational". And you NEVER hear of the gun incidents like the local stations play where some home owner shoots to burglars in the act. Almost always have to YOUTUBE search those.

"Nowhere do I see any mention of the brand, caliber, etc."

Most news sources are now reporting that the weapon was an AR-15, and the shooter had several hundred rounds of ammo on him.

Yeah, I know.....that doesn't mean jack-shit to you gun-nutz.
