Could spend 21 years in jail. Tragedy all the way around. 

I don't get it though. If you are so afraid of your environment that you think you need a gun with you when you go for a jog, you should find a different place to jog. Add to it that he filmed the encounter and it's another case of "I'm the main character" syndrome.   People... take a step back and look at what's up. This isn't the way it should be.

We blame the shooter and the easy, sometimes almost unfettered access to guns.

I own six weapons. Three pistols. And, no one, not a single person should be able to own an AR 15 for personal protection. Nor a rocket launcher, grenade launcher, full body armor or 20000 rounds of ammunition.

The system for background checks has been broken from the start. It should be a rapid access computerized and most importantly rapidly updateable. It is not. If you beat your wife so badly she goes into the hospital your name should appear in the database the day of your arrest. And within 24 hours the sheriff should come remove guns from your possession. Lying about what weapons you have should result in a 5 year jail sentence and lifetime gun ownership ban. 

The military, because we ask so much of these men and women, results in high rates of mental instability. It is a fact. Suicide and weapon crimes are far higher in those exposed to violence, war zones, dead children, a bloodied friend bleeding out in your arms. This particular shooter had past mental hospital stays. Red flag laws should be real everywhere. It is a touchy area but it needs to be sorted.

Generally the attitude of the right is: make no new gun laws. The Second amendment and its one sentence and one comma has never guaranteed everyone all the weapons they want under the guise of personal safety from this mad world.

We must admit that America is no longer safe as it stands. It should be a goal to make it safer. The world shakes its head at our sustained foolishness.

So as richard posted earlier that up to 31% of mass shooters were in the military, we should get rid of the military ?  We get rid of all guns, in private possession, law enforcement and military?  Is that your solution ?

Sounds like it based upon your comment above.  You blame the gun, not the shooter.

 The best thing that one can do is try and live life to the fullest. Be nice to strangers and friends.  Do unto others like you would have them do unto you.  Live every day like it could be your last.

It can be over in the blink of an eye through no fault of your own.  Kinda like those who had a bad Saturday in Israel. Or a bad night in Lewiston, Maine.

Or you can cower in fear, curled up in the fetal position in a corner drooling, waiting for the end, blaming others for your own problems.

You want a fool proof safe life.  It doesn't work that way.  For anybody.  And all the laws in the world cannot make it that way.

A drunk driver can go left of center and hit you head on.  There are laws about drinking and driving.  Are they going to stop that driver from killing you ?

There are things beyond anyone's control.  Something is always going to go wrong.  Maybe not today or tomorrow. But it will happen.

Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is all it takes sometimes.  There are no laws that can prevent that, yet you seek them out and want to impose them on others because of your own fears.

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety"  Franklin.

And another timely thing he said ...

"Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech", but that quote belongs in the Biden or Democrat party thread for another day.

So many words, so little said. Thanks Captain Obvious.
 
So taking away one’s ability to own an assault weapon is taking away an essential freedom? You’re more f*cked up than even I thought if that truly is the parallel you are trying to draw between my last post and this one.
 
How about this… what if the Maine shooter only had access to a conventional hand-gun or knife? Would the level of devastation have been different? The obvious answer is yes. Now you will come back with something like: “Well he would have found a way to get one”… maybe. But if assault weapons were made illegal to own and illegal to purchase then putting up a hurdle as some measure of prevention is only common sense.

I don’t know how Hunter Biden factors into any of this but please keep shoe-horning his name into all of your replies… it’s very entertaining.

It is a useless fact.  It is akin to saying that you need alcohol to get drunk.

There is no unfettered access to guns in the United States.  Unless your name is Hunter Biden.
