@El _Lobo You know what's " leading us down a road to destruction as a nation" Parents not involved in their children's lives... Parents who spoil kids and don't teach them that life is about hard work and it isn't fair...

@El _Lobo Thanks for the list El_Lobo it sounds more like parents need to do a better job locking down their weapons. BTW there are plenty of state laws that penalize parents for not properly securing their firearm.

What law would you suggest to prevent parents from leaving guns unsecured?

In those instances the parents had not committed any crimes or been diagnosed with a mental illness. It was their child that committed the crimes at these schools.

So once again, please provide me with what new law could stop this from occurring?

Are you saying that if a person passes a background check (which is done in all gun shops today ATF requirement), doesn't have a criminal background, doesn't have a mental illness diagnosed or otherwise... they shouldn't be allowed to purchase a firearm? Because that is the only way to prevent these specific instances where the child took the firearm owned by the parents.

I'm not spewing NRA propaganda I'm actually asking for some real discourse on the matter because it's not as clear cut as "WE NEED MORE GUN LAWS!"

@skyblueproperties @joedeveloper @True American I agree. And people that completely discount guns aren't interested in actually trying to fix it. They are a part of this issue, but it's complex and has a lot of parts that require scrutinizing.

@skyblueproperties @True American How's this for logical. Laws exist as a guideline for how to proceed when someone breaks those laws. They exist to provide consequences for criminals who break those laws. Laws will never stop a criminal from committing a crime, but once caught will hold them accountable for said crimes.

A law will never stop a criminal from acquiring a weapon. Additionally, there is no law that exists or could be created that would stop someone without a criminal or mental history from buying a firearm. So the answer is get rid of all the guns? That isn't really logical or logistically possible either.

So whats the solution? Look at the root of the problem instead of the tools that are used to commit crimes.

Do DUI laws prevent a person from drinking and driving? No, but once caught they hold them accountable. How is this a hard concept to understand?

@El _Lobo But you understand that most of the gun laws target assault rifles. Cho killed 33 people and injured 23 with a glock handgun at the virginia tech massacre.

Will gun laws prevent a criminal from obtaining a weapon from someone else? Will it stop them from stealing a gun and using it in a crime? Once the officers on Sunday were incapacitated the scumbags who I will not mention took their weapons and ammo. Should we not have armed police officers who could have their guns stolen?

Now I'll admit I'm making some pretty far fetched statements, but again remember that laws exist to punish those who break them. Laws will never stop a criminal from committing a crime. Laws that are currently on the books need to be enforced as well.

@Lasvegasrobert Because it's a disgrace in my opinion to look at cops on the street that are so overweight they can't bend down to pick up the pen they just dropped, yes I witnessed this first hand. That being said you're right it takes more than that, it takes quick instinct to act and make the right judgement call. However, this bar has been set way too low in my opinion. 10:49mile really? That's sad.
