The 800 pound gorilla in the room, and the one thing that everyone outside the media bubble wants to know, is why did he do this?
I just hope the answer will give everyone involved some satisfaction/closure. Sadly not every answer given for such massive events are that clear cut.
The "bump stock" controversy is just another path at attempting to ban semi-automatic weapons.
Well it kinda makes it into a full-automatic (which is mostly banned no? Funny that!). Modifying any commodity outside its approved/allowed parameters (should) gets you into problem. I don't think you'd allow people putting up barb wire for normal garden fencing or do you?
It's not feasible that anyone can be born in the USA, live 64 years, be a mail carrier, work for the IRS for several years, become enormously wealthy as a real estate mogul, professional gambler, travel the world, and no one know who you are or what you believe in. The last thing I read was some moron wants us to believe he had an "undiagnosed mental illness"... which means nothing. It's right up there with "we think he was a closet gay" or "our running assumption is his target was not people... he had an uncontrollable fear and hatred for cowboy hats... he just couldn't take it when he looked out his window".
More surprised the amount of "let us explain this fellow" is so low, unless offcourse we in europe don't hear every crackpot psychologist being drummed on stage on every newsoutlet in the US...
I want a real explanation why he killed so many people, and it appears there is a vested interest in keeping this guy, and his life, a secret. Where are all the people he has known all his life? Has anyone even checked to see his voter registration? I want to know.
Apart from keeping the investigation rolling smoothly (with some necessary hush-hush), I too am surprised that hasn't come up yet, perhaps he just isn't registered.
Private event. 2nd amendment applies to the Government, people and companies have the rights to state what can or cannot be brought in (similar to 1st amendment, Government can't tell you to stop something, but your work sure can tell you no politics in the office).
So wait, that search wouldn't be an infraction on your hallowed 2nd amendment?
shhhh, I am trying to be obtuse. Trying to show black&white doesn't work even in law.
@Shah: rascism but also good old profiling and stereotyping. Can't really completely block that out.
