A psychiatrist who treated James Holmes told campus police a month before the Colorado theater attack that Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a danger to the public, according to documents released Thursday.

Yet... well, you can google what he was allowed to purchase... EASILY and CONVENIENTLY.

Why NOT have a registry where those in charge of public safety can enter that kind of data and prevent HOMICIDAL maniacs from EASILY and CONVENIENTLY amassing weapons and ammo through legal channels?

He should have been reported and denied purchase. Simple as that. That's the kind of changes I'd advocate for.

Oh, and they still go out in public because... surprise... the odds are fairly low of becoming a gunshot victim.

Quick question...

How effective do you think the 7 round magazine limit is going to be in New York? Do you think it's effective to tell them they have a year to dispose of them/sell them out of state?

I bet neighboring states LOVE that.

Oh, you mean like better mental health care? Universal background checks? Training and licensing to own firearms?

Oops, no... you mean repeal of the 2nd. Good luck with that.

the odds are fairly low of becoming a gunshot victim.

And so, they are not afraid... which means they can make a rational decision... like the sale of machines designed to and capable of killing dozens of people in minutes should be regulated.

Glad we got that cleared up.

Now tell me the rational thought process behind resisting a comprehensive gun registry cross-referenced with records of HOMICIDAL maniacs and known gang members. And please include as many references as possible to a tyrannical government hell bent on taking away pea shooters so they don't scratch their tanks... or a stand off with hoards of criminals in the driveway.

What about the NRA Member Roster?
Isn't that a registry of all the Wacked out Gun nuts!

and they will sell that roster to anyone with a large pile of Bucks
The Government probably already has the list, and already putting those people the Terrorist watch list

Lets condense that article:

The only reason people buy guns because they want a bigger penis.
We should try and accept and understand what gives other people satisfaction, except nobody really understands why a gun makes your penis seem bigger.
You dont want a gun, you,ll shoot your eye out!
It,s reasonable to trade our rights and privacy for protection from miniscule risk.
Massacres are bad.
I,m probably afraid of the dark and the boogeyman. With a gun.

huh. my guns provide meat in the freezer an the occasional weekend can shooting entertainment. Not so sure about the false sense of empowerment stated in the article. I guess since i go fishing i,m more likely to die of lead poisoning than someone who only eats sushi out, if i follow the logic of the article.

all i was doing is streamling the author,s POV.

one time,, at band camp,, my gun saved my life. In addition, my guns give me meat in the freezer as well.. CLEAN pure protien nealry fat free, with zero hormones additives, preservatives or dyes. And they provide great entertainment shooting targets. Balistics are quite interesting. As well is the large selection of specialty ammos these days. Ranchers and farmers LOVE the ground hog hunters and the hog hunters these days as that is the only control on extremely destructive species such as those.

Hr, in comparison with some here,, yur a walking SAINT...;-)


but the good newsin NV is:


Two new Nevada gun laws took effect Friday that make it easier to buy guns across state lines and obtain permits for concealed weapons.

One of the laws eliminates paperwork and red tape for concealed weapon permit holders.

Read the Concealed Weapons Permit Law

If you qualify for a permit to carry a concealed firearm, you may obtain one permit for all semiautomatic firearms you seek to carry - rather than obtain a permit for each specific semiautomatic firearm.

Under the old law, if you had one gun on your permit and wanted to add a different gun a year later, you'd have to re-qualify with all the paperwork.

The Gun Store firearms instructor Shawn Gilbert says the new law makes it easier for Nevada gun owners and makes our state safer.

"Every state that has adopted a CCW law, crime has gone down in that state," he said. "An armed society is a polite society… If you're Joe Criminal, aren't you going to think twice about breaking into somebody's house knowing they might have a gun in there, or bothering the guy on the street thinking, ‘Okay, he might have a CCW. So, I'm gonna' pick an easier target?'"

Gilbert says the new law could also create more business for gun stores in the valley.

The second law that went into effect allows people from out-of-state to come to a Nevada gun store and purchase a rifle or shotgun.

Read the Interstate Firearms Sale Law

Under the old law, you couldn't walk out of the store with it.
