    How would you control this gun? It was purchased legally by a fucked up person. Said person then did horrible fucking things with it. I really don't have an answer so this is a legit question.

    there is no legit answer. even a total ban on guns would not have stopped this guy.

    My heart goes out to this poor man and his family, but I think trying to ban guns doesnt make sense to me. This lunatic had a clear mission to kill his co workers. Whether he used a gun, a crossbow, a knife, pit viper, baseball bat, or threw them out of windows its all same to me.

    the problem is that people don't think these things through. the problem is not access to guns, any more than the problem that led to the kansas city bombing was the access to fertilizer and diesel fuel.

    Measuring the argument of an insane person cannot be done with a ruler comprised of sanity.

    I'm not anti gun but I wouldn't have an issue with an iq test before you can buy a gun. Might resolve the issue of stupid people owning guns...

    Isn't that the same thing as requiring a voter ID to vote?
