    Unfortunately the perp was just a normal guy who probably legally owned his guns. He just lost it and made a terrible decision to hurt others. I'm sure this will serve as political fodder very soon.

    If we could just convince these people to shoot themselves before they go out and do these things.

    I've made that wish several times myself! As to the political spin have no doubt it will be there, but this incident at least from the report appears pretty atypical.

    I am pretty sure the guns do it themselves. That is why it is called "gun violence" and not "human violence".

    Experiment:
    * Put a gun in a room.
    * Put a human in another room.
    * Poke each in the side, until you get a response or until 24hrs has elapsed.
    * Document the effects.
    * Rinse and repeat.

    I'll bet we'll have 0% violence perpetrated by the gun, and some material percentage of the human subjects becoming violent.

    I didn't figure I had to put a sarcasm quote around mine, it seemed pretty obvious.

    It was. I didn't expect to have required a "sarcasm" icon either. Still, the point is an important one: that anti-gunner liberty-haters think that their claims hold any water at all, that "gun violence" has any meaning. Yes, weaponry can boost the effectiveness of the one using it, sure. But I doubt any of them have considered the emptiness of their claim that guns are violent or cause violence. While my post came as a result of your earlier comment, it wasn't a reply to it as such. The sarcasm was obvious, as you say. The vapid nature of the gun-grabbers' points are as well, IMO. More ammo for folks to use against such vapid claims, if nothing else.
