I don’t know why the government doesn’t enforce the gun laws that are already on the books instead of asking for more and more gun laws.  Well, actually I do know–it is because the gal is not to stop these killings but to eventually confiscate all guns from the hands of private citizens.  But any way, this guy would not have had a gun if the feds had just enforced the laws that are already on the books.  Those with mental illness are not supposed to be able to by guns, and this guy, like all the other mass shooters, was nuttier than a fruit cake.  Also, those who commit felonies or break laws with guns are not supposed to be able to obtain or keep guns, and he was involved in two previous shootings incidents including the shooting of the tires off of a car that parked in his spot.  We don’t need more gun laws to restrict the rights of law abiding Americans.
