Texas Shooter & Gun Control

QUESTION: You do not think that control will stop these school shootings?

JF

ANSWER: No way. If you do look on Wikipedia, you will see that we are approaching 500 incidents where a gun has been discharged in a school. This has been going on since the 18th century, Imposing metal examines and a note from a family doctor to get a gun that there have been no mental concerns is a good idea. Keep in mind, people who do these things are NOT criminals. They are more often than not deranged and have no criminal record.

Additionally, outlawing all guns is crazy. You run the risk of a government out of control like Venezuela supported by the army and the people have no means to defend themselves or their property. Moreover, criminals do not walk into a store to buy a gun to go rob a bank. They buy them in the black market off the radar. You cannot stop crazy people by then taking guns away from everyone else. Once again the shooter was posting Nazi things online.

Hello? Does anyone look at behavioral patterns as criteria?
