    If you'd ever believe I would kill a mass of people let alone a single person, you don't know me or my posts at all.

    I sure wish a task force were put in place to research and analyze these mass shooter over the past 20 - 25 years. It seems to me the vast majority of them are young white males in the transition years, not men, but not boys either. Sort of stuck in place.
    It also seems many do not live with their father. So what the hell is going on? Why is this group having this particular trouble leading to these horrific tragedies? It seems quite obvious they are representative of group that is not ready to join and be productive
    members of society, to cast an intelligent votes or be responsible with weapons. My God! It is time to find some answers, what the hell is wrong?

    I never said a thing about mass shooters. It's not an accurate or grammatical term for anything that I can think of, like for instance mass murderer.

    Maybe a mass of shooters at the target range.

    It's a blatant attempt to mislabel and protect a murderer, for political gain, and you are so programmed to use it you can't help yourself.

    What you want him to do in addition to already providing Federal support from several agencies and expressing condolences. He can't turn back time and set a trap for the murderer. He'll probably try to improve mental health care again and get shot down again by the Dems. You're posting on the OT forum as usual, he's going about his duties leading the free world, not sure what's the difference.

    Meanwhile, with dead bodies still on the ground Opportunist Beto is running his mouth off and lying to everyone in a desperate attempt to regain relevance. Why not criticize him or every other Dem who is doing the same? Why not criticize Chicago's mayor for not stopping everything each evening to grieve for the dozen deaths of the day, every day? This is an infinitesimal rarity in an enormous country, as opposed to a daily occurrence in most major cities.

    Second amendment only allows a person to own a gun. Nowhere does it say all types of guns. The constitution never said we should all have assault rifles. No one needs an assault rifle like an AK47.

    I had to give up the Salis Sea cruise, my daughter came to visit. But I just arrived on the MarAzul, going to bring her south, maybe to the Umpqua and prep her for Mexico.
    Intentions are to do some exploring of the Laguna San Ignacio and Magdalena, perhaps December or so. Decisions on Panama later.

    It says Arms. But I am not able to have the same weapon I used in Afghanistan, the M16. I think that is an assault rifle.

    Drip with hate? Is this common dialog here? Why would anyone know you knew someone gunned down recently?

    Likewise. I own an AK-47, and I voted for Trump. And I don't appreciate you associating me with a crazy mass murderer.

    This from Wikipedia
    "The hypothesis that individuals with AS are predisposed to violent or criminal behavior has been investigated, but is not supported by data. More evidence suggests that children diagnosed with Asperger syndrome are victims rather than offenders.
    A 2008 review found that an overwhelming number of reported violent criminals with Asperger syndrome had also other coexisting psychotic psychiatric disorders such as schizoaffective disorder."

    In fairness, if you voted for Trump, you are crazy.

    Also, WHY do you own an AK-47?

    I own guns for self defense and hunting, but see 0 reason to own an assault rifle.

    I love my guns. If some asshat tries to come into my home unwelcomed, I will put put 2 bullets into the fucks head......just to be sure the piece of shit doesn't survive. Still see no need for an assault rifle

    I have a lame answer for this. I was talking with a coworker a week or so ago about this. I asked the same question...."why does anyone need an assault rifle"

    His answer was...."I own an assault rifle because of the potential of a fascist government overtaking the American way of life"

    Lots of weirdos out there
