There is no rational case to change or add any laws.

When you have someone who gains this much attention from Local law enforcement, and you don't even look to see that he has armed himself, the law broken is comman sense.

I know that many people own guns in Arazona, but, how many have made threats to kill? And after such threats, there are ways to suppress his 2end ammendment rights, without affecting mine. This man demonstrated he was crazy, made threats to kill, was allowed to buy a gun and was not investigated and disarmed!

This where the law makers attention should be focussed.
