  1. So an 18 Year Old Train-ney Foreign-born Kid With NO Job Who Lives With Grandma Bought $6K Worth of Two AR-15s, Optics, Ammo, and Range Time to Learn How to Shoot?

  2. Part of this whole gun debate should take into account that in 1791, when the 2nd Amendment was ratified, the average musket or flintlock pistol could fire about 3 rounds per minute. A standard semi-automatic weapon today can shoot around 50-100 rounds per minute. It’s as if the law hasn’t kept pace with the technological advance of armaments. In the same way that cars were produced that became capable of better performance over time, and driving laws to take account of this were introduced to keep pace with this, surely stricter gun control legislation should’ve long before now been introduced in America, as gun performance improved and evolved. Other countries, *most* other countries, can see this, but for America, it seems like a blind spot as that society is bedazzled by the 2nd Amendment.

    1. They law absolutely kept pace, it’s as relevant today as it was then. You’re not so naive to think the founding fathers didn’t take advancing technology into account, are you?

    2. I want restrictions in the first ammendment too. To much technology and media platforms to spill your drivel. Back in 1791 it took days sometimes weeks to get a newspaper from a printing press.

    1. @Jim Longino He was not illegal at all. But don’t let facts get in the way of your racism, buttercup.

  3. Crypto currency and NFTs will outsmart the banking system in the nearest future serving as a global fiat. $48,000 just in two weeks, Angela Cole Carr you are so amazing

  4. It is 🚫 just guns but also parenting as well. There are so many people who just let their children act out in public and coddle them rather than disciplining them which should be addressed as well. I think this will force the parents to start teaching their kids right from wrong again.

  5. Has anyone heard if the shooter’s parents are legal citizens? The list of the victims sound like they would south of the border.

  6. Nobody needs an assault rifle!!! For god sake, what is wrong with our country and our world? Our thoughts go to the families who lost loved ones..

    1. For God’s sake an assault rifle was not used. Do some research on what it is, you’ll look foolish.
