Sam, I in no way endorse nuts with guns. I feel that most of the people that do these kinds of things have put up more than one red flag before they do whatever they do. This is what needs to have attention. That and the many laws in place that are designed to keep these people off the streets. What about those of us that don't target shoot in a movie theater? Why do we have to pay the price?
Here in Ithaca, I just recently had a friend (LEO) get shot by a person he had tried to pull over for driving a stolen car. Long story short, this is the third time this person has been caught with a handgun with the SN's ground off. Last year our judge let him off on attempted murder charges because he said the DAs office didn't try hard enough to find him when he was on the run. We need to get these people off the streets before we worry about what color a evil looking gun is when its in the hands of a law abiding citizen. The biggest reason they don't want 30 round clips in AR's is because they look evil. It takes me 15 seconds longer to shoot 3 ten round clips, not enough time to make a difference if I wanted to shoot up something.
I'm sure the FF did not have the internet in mind either, but should we limit freedom of speech because we can all talk to each other with the push of the send key?
I think we got off the upside down flag thread. But this still has something to do with a nation in distress. It's a nice day and I think I'm gonna go shoot my evil gun and support the economy (will need more ammo).
