It's been said over and over again, ban guns and only criminals will have them. No one can legislate for morons, maniacs or criminals, they ignore the law anyway.

So what is your answer do nothing, throw more guns at the situation perhaps?

Like it or not something has to be done and I am more convinced than ever that the problem is the screening or lack of for people buying weapons however in this case I don't think any amount of screening would have prevented him carrying out this act.

So for as horrendous as his actions were and as much as it would be great to be able to argue about arms control it would not have helped in this case nor will it ever prevent random acts such as this.

I never said throw more guns anywhere, don't try and put words in my mouth. So what's your answer Monty, what can be done that's not already been done?

Did you know that murder is illegal? Yet thousands of murders are committed every year. GASP!

As I pointed out in this case I do not think anything can be done it was a perfect example of an unpredictable act.

He wasn't a known nutjob, he had no history of criminal activity or mental illness so I can see no reason why he should not have owned firearms.

So my answer in this case is to do nothing and write it off as a random case of insanity.
