After Further Review / Re: School Shooting of the Day: Florida
« Last post by Peter Gozintiter on Today at 07:26:19 PM »
Well, no one of that age deserves full-size adult attacks.  But they bear some measure of guilt too.  The parents, school officials, law enforcement and fellow students all dropped the ball on this guy.  They all knew what he was capable of- he even made a direct threat of what he eventually carried out.  Pretending that the gun alone carried out the attack is beyond stupid.

But just expressing an opinion about gun control, whether you agree with it or not, isn't grounds for personal attacks.
Wasnt he kicked out of school? This lays on law enforcement and his parents.

"I have a few questions for Fog:

1.  What was the violation which led to my thread locked?
2.  What was the violation that led you remove my ability to start a thread?
3.  Given there were no violations in the post of mine Famous chose to report, if I hadn't removed it myself, would you have deleted it?  If so, why?

I'm just trying to get clear on what the rules are around here, these days.

Thanks."

The whole "she's mentally ill" thing is really quite funny.

I guess that's all he has left.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

He's finally following through on his promise after the Las Vegas shooting........sort of.
Yes, but most of it is probably to save face himself.  It's low-hanging fruit in the gun control world; even the NRA said they'd be cool with banning bump stocks.

Well, I don't see the exact correlation, but Trump is trying to ban bump stocks via executive order:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-43135584

Okay, it's not exactly a ban.  The EA directs "the Department of Justice to propose a law to make the accessories illegal".  In the end, Congress will still have to propose a new law or amend existing law to ban the devices.

The abortive attempts in October / November to even propose legislation for a vote in Congress was closer than this is now.  The language of the National Firearms Act is unfortunately clear, that the lower receiver portion where the action is located, is what constitutes a machine gun or not.  This president can't unilaterally ban a gun or gun part, as Obama often lamented.  And the ATF can't reinterpret a law to cover what are in effect machine guns, because the language is so distinct.

What form the legislation might take will be interesting, if it actually does proceed to a vote.  Will the devices be banned ?  Or simply new examples banned from sale ?  It's a pathetic first step, whatever happens, but I'm hopeful it could expand towards something meaningful, such as more comprehensive background checks and mandatory safety & security requirements.
