Don’t worry about it, he can’t understand guns, gun ownership, the Bill of Rights, what any of it means, or what it is for.

There have to be some limits on the degree of dangerousness of weapons that we allow the general public to possess.

Yes. Roughly on par with a Marine squad.

I hope he paid the $200 transfer tax on the silencer his keyboard is apparently equipped with. ;)

Ah, yes, the ol' "say-fer guns and say-fer bullets" meme. Heard it years ago from another mental giant, wasn't impressed then, either.

Yeah, and renewed his free speech license.
And his trial by jury license.
Or his peaceable assembly license.

I have a good friend who has a older brother that is mentally ill and he lives on the street. He’s not at all a violent character though he is self destructive and he makes a mild nuisance of himself. He won’t voluntarily adhere to any treatment and as he’s never posed a threat he has never been committed for any length of time. The mother is an enabler, to this day the brother (late 40’s) will show up for a meal or to get warm. The father became a hyper authoritarian and my friend grew up under that father. (My friend never had a good relationship with his father, in large part because of the problems with his brother.). The father recently died and the mother is aging. It’s all very sad. My friend is not known for his patients though he is a great guy. He has almost no patients in dealing with his brother -far be it from me to judge that.

We used to take our firearms to school so we could go hunting after classes let out...where were all the school shootings back then? Lockers with rifles never struck me as ‘odd’...

“We have a gun grabber here!”

Great idea, eh? Grab guns from law abiding citizens so that only sicko people have them. That worked really well for the Sandy Hook School.

Yeah!
And everywhere they banned guns, violent crime exploded out of control.

If criminals know their targets are unarmed, they are emboldened.
If they have doubts about whether or not their target will defend themself, they are less likely to commit the crime.
If they know for a fact that defense is assured, they avoid that place as it is too hard for them to ‘crack’ as it is harder to get at victims.

Blindingly simple.
Ask Israel and Switzerland.

Security at schools need to be armed.

Many of these young men before the hormones drive them more mad need some form of castration or permanent block regarding the testosterone that eventually takes their crazy to the next level IMO.

You wouldn’t want these types breeding anyway.

That boy in Connecticut didn’t appear to me to have much in the way of “excess testosterone”.
