I wonder whether stricter nation wide gun control would have prevented this tragedy.

Why not? It "worked" in the UK, now they just machete everyone and run em down in trucks.... By the way edged weapons never run out of ammo.

Maybe. But limiting your ability to own a weapon isn’t always a complete solution. Having a camera in every home and a camera on every street corner would also help prevent such tragedies. But do you want to go there?

Burgers Allday...no. We could make it illegal to kill people. We also could make it illegal for people who are underage, or with mental health issues, or are convicted felons, or are domestic abusers, or are illegal aliens to posses firearms. Oh...wait, we already have that, so we should just take all the firearms away from law abiding citizens but then you'll have to talk criminals, bangers, etc. into giving up their weapons. If you want to fix the killing, you'll have realize the problem is people. Guns, knives, vehicles, bombs are the symptom. Fix the problem...not the symptom.

@Burgers Allday No. it would not. As JBo pointed out, guns are just the tool not the problem. In places with strict gun laws criminals still have weapons. Why? Because they do not follow the laws and get their weapons illegally. If they cannot get guns they use knifes, vehicles, bombs, or other things. The point is, if someone is intent on killing a lot of people they will find a way around the laws and sue what is easily available. Plus let me refresh your memory a bit. There was an active shooter in a church in Texas a while back. The neighbor who lived next to the church heard the shots, got his legally obtained firearm and entered the church. He saved countless lives by shooting and chasing off the shooter. This is a common story in Texas where many citizens are armed. When you disarms the public you make it where only the criminals have guns. That is not a good situation.

Better gun control is kind of like the law against meth. Some people still take meth, but fewer people do because it is illegal. Of course, in the correct circumstances, one can get prescription drugs. Some maybe guns should work more like that.

Burger eating asshat...let’s look at it this way, most of the people here (minus a few trolls) are cops, we are the ones most likely to face people with firearms who are intent on doing harm, and it is funny that the major of us are against gun control, do you know why? Because we are also law abiding firearms owners and we realize that it is not the firearms but the people who use them that are the problem, the country has plenty of laws but if they are not enforced then what is the point!! And say you do get gun control passed, and they want citizens to give up their firearms or become criminals. Are you going to go get the guns? Because I can guarantee that the cops are not going to get guns from lawful citizens! Hell we can’t even take them from criminals. You sir are a dumbass.

" I can guarantee that the cops are not going to get guns from lawful citizens!" If that is what they are ordered to do then they will do it, or be terminated. That is how that works.

Cameras are useful tools, and can help identify perps, and in some cases deter crime, but banks have had cameras for decades and the perps now just wear masks. Besides anyone brazen enough to walk into a school and start shooting knowing full well there's a resource officer on duty is suicidal at best. The camera would just be a training aid for other officers after the incident. Unless the shooter got away, then would help prove identity.

I wouldn't do meth or any other drug, on purpose, legal or illegal. I don't even like taking prescription drugs after a surgery. For the one good thing a drug does there seems to be 10 bad things. I think most people have enough common sense to do the right thing. Like not do drugs, not kill people. Shouldn't need a law to tell you so.

How about the court system letting the police do their job and they should do their. How many guns are seized from thugs that didn't get their guns legally, then the courts say "poor Baby" and release them. Sorry to say, all lot of them do more crimes and more people get hurt. Also do not give the thugs that fame they think they deserve. Antone can kill, how many can save lives. the thugs take the easy way,

Police will never disarm the population. Even if some law is passed to "allow" this, the officers ultimate allegiance is to the constitution. There are Sheriffs across the country that are refusing to enforce recent gun control laws. The U.S. is not a police state. Bugger, if you want to live in a police state, go to Venezuela. Your biggest struggle will be the trip from from your parent's basement to the airport. After that, it will be smooth sailing.

Gun free zone signage is just that. A sign.
Hire ret cops and arm them. Enough. Create school marshal status to follow for them.
Local pd’s do not have manpower to man every school.

@Det_John_Kimble
Your argument is offbase. Vehicles and machetes have primary uses. Using them to kill is a misuse of that item. Guns are meant for shooting and for only shooting. There is no alternate use for a gun.

JBo
JBo

Hi_estComnDenomn...if a gun is designed to shoot, that doesn't mean it was designed to kill. Most firearms (excepting military assault weapons) have not been used to kill. Machetes are designed to cut (long, wide and deep), but also not designed for killing, although both firearms and machetes have been used to kill. Any instrument can be used for a purpose other than what it was intended. It's the person wielding the instrument that makes the decision to kill.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@JBo
Semantics. Please give me a practical alternative use for a gun.

For example, a machete can be primarily used to cut cane. A van can be primarily used to transport from point A to point B. What is a gun's primary use?

Det_John_Kimble
Det_John_Kimble

No it isn't. Tell that to the people killing people with cars and machetes in the real world. Hey man you can't use that for that. Bricks' primary use might be to build a wall, but someone can smash one into someone's head and kill them. Does it really matter? We've had this debate before. Guns primary use is to shoot, correct. But not just shoot people. I can shoot deer, rabbit, duck, squirrel, alligator, rodent, turkey, etc, lots of hunters where I live. Not to mention, lots of gun lovers simply love shooting at paper targets. Did I mention shooting a gun can be enjoyable? Just like driving a sports car? If you use it for the wrong purpose anything can be deemed evil by the lefties. Now lets talking about using a gun to shoot people. Another practical purpose of a gun. Police and military protect us with them everyday whether you realize that or not. You were in the Navy "supposedly" and a cop in the Navy at that, you should know everything I am saying already. Secondly, there are hundreds of justifiable homicides every year with a gun being the tool of the trade. Lots of other justifiable homicides with other tools being used. You could grab a fireplace poker and defend yourself when the bad guys break into your home a 2am while you're sleeping. Anything goes. Your argument leaves out important facts. Like who is being shot and why. If you try to make this issue black and white it isn't. (That's an expression and I'm not talking race) Each shooting has its own particular circumstances. So tell me what the answer to these school shootings is? It isn't taking away everyone's guns. Unless you're mentally unfit or convicted felon of course. Schools need to address bullying etc, and parents need to stay involved in their kids' lives. Yes you apparently need to have armed guards at schools these days and metal detractors and a plan to respond when one happens. Better controlling access in and out of the school might help, in some cases these kids were even going to the school anymore and had business gaining entry.

Oh yeah I almost forgot about gun collectors. I have family members that own many many guns, some of which they have never fire a single shot. Some are collectors items, like the World War 2 German Luger 9mm pistol that was taken from a German Officer by that person's grand parent. Or the old rifles that were handed down for several generations.

@Det_John_Kimble I couldn’t have said it better myself. But obviously these idiots on the left are not listening to reason. They don’t even care what LE officers think. Frankly I’d quit before being ordered to unarm the law abiding public. Thank God my Sheriff is a good man.

First off i was an officer, so i definitely wasn't a Navy cop. And if i were enlisted, I'd have been too smart by Navy standards to be a cop.

And i told you what my solution was, though there are many.

  1. Metal detectors in schools
  2. Legal prostitution so that lonely white guys don't lose their minds as often.

Navy, explains a lot. Stuck on a boat with a bunch of guys, you were loving that eh LCD?

Det_John_Kimble
Det_John_Kimble

I thought you were guarding a boat in Somalia? Didn't you mention having arrest powers? Oh well. Yes agreed metal detectors will help, many big city schools have had them for a while. You just need a qualified person like a cop in charge of it, so nothing gets snuck past. I remember a janitor hiding a weapon for a student once. All schools need them since these kids today can't get just fist fight with someone and be done with it already. Legal prostitution I'm not so sure. Most of these school shootings are being done by teenagers, with a few exceptions, and yes the Mandalay Bay loser maybe, who knows what his issues were. Maybe you could run a pimp / weed warehouse if all that becomes legal in 50 states and keep em happy. In the mean time I'm keepin' my firearms in case the next nut job shows up in my town.

@Thinblueline H_C Dumbshit only wishes he was in the Navy. In actually he has no knowledge of Naval Operations other than what a person can google. He doesn't even know about the physical fitness program.
All he really is is a dirtbag liberal that likes racial profiling.

I never served on a boat, but i served on a few ships. And i worked with some great men AND women.

You do realize women have been on ships for decades now, right?

These school shootings are being done by loner extremist white guys. EVERY SINGLE ONE would be considered a loser by normal social standards, but they've been told all their lives they're owed something.

In the past, loser white guys went on to accomplish great things. Do you think Bill Gates, Nikola Tesla, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Elon Musk were the cool guys in school? I bet they got their asses whooped all through high school and came through that shit. White guys nowadays are mentally fragile.

Guarding a boat in Somalia? You mean standing watch when we were in port, foreign or domestic?

Thats not cop work.

And then last shooter was 19.he would be able to get a prostitute. This guy in Texas was 17,which is the age of consent. He would have been able to get laid as well.

Not all of these shootings are loser loner white dudes. But keep in mind playing the numbers game there are lots more loser white dudes than loser black, Hispanic, other dudes simply because they're in the majority. Something else needs to be done I guess if they can't handle being a loser whomever they come from.

Det_John_Kimble
Det_John_Kimble

Lets see what the real numbers say...

Det_John_Kimble
Det_John_Kimble

From 1982 to 2018 (as of Feb 2018) 56 of these school shootings were done by whites, but 16 were done by blacks, then 7 by Latinos. I won't bother to figure out the exact percents of all that, but just right off hand they seem to be on par with the stats of our country's population. Lots more white dudes around so therefore should be more of them shooting in the schools right? Outside the classroom shooting scenario, which is still pretty rare even though CNN would have you believe it happens every day and the gun is at fault, the numbers change up dramatically. I'm long out of school, so the odds of my being killed in a school shooting are probably real low. The odds are much higher of all other real world every day scenarios for getting shot (stabbed, murdered by other means). In this every other case scenario, you're way more likely to be killed or assaulted by a black male.

Hi_estComnDenomn

@Det_John_Kimble
Using a fireplace poker to kill is a secondary use.

Sports cars are regulated and you have to have a government license to use one. Do you really want to compare driving to shooting? That argument goes in my favor.

Collecting a gun is a secondary use for the gun. Shooting/killing is the primary use.

Military and cops use guns to protect. And they use those guns to shoot and kill to protect.

See, you think I'm against guns, but I'm not. I own guns myself and i love shooting. But to say that some new angle of registration is not needed is shortsighted.

If you believe that, then get used to a lonely white guy shooting up a school once a month for the rest of your life.

There is a difference between a shooting and a mass shooting. That's an important distinction you didn't make. What about body count? I digress.

Neither are right, but black school shootings are overwhelmingly retaliatory. That's why the media doesn't mention those; white kids aren't affected by gang violence. White school shootings are indiscriminate. They are looking to kill anybody, and THAT is the scary part for media.

If you have the body counts for those shootings, please share. I'm sure the math will show the truth.

Det_John_Kimble
Det_John_Kimble

Plane crashes are horrible and sometimes hundreds die but flying in a plane is still far safer than driving in a car. Hundreds of people dying at once sounds a lot worse than a car crash that kills 4. Except the car crashes happen way more often. Same thing with mass school shootings and school shootings that may be retaliatory. Innocent people do get hit in the crossfire. I suggest you come to a Mardis Gras one year.

And there are many states where you can buy a gun much, much easier than a car. Chicago criminals get their guns from indiana, because gun laws in Illinois prevent criminals from buying them. Its simply untrue that its harder to get a gun than a car in many states.

I've been to new Orleans quite a few times, thanks. Mardi Gras and Essence Fest, namely. And every time I've gone, no one's been shot. Maybe I'm lucky.

Hi_estComnDenomn..."Semantics. Please give me a practical alternative use for a gun." Here's an alternative: Olympic Shooting.
https://www.olympic.org/shooting. It's not semantics. Auto deaths in 2017: 40,000+. Gun deaths: 15,500+. Cars aren't designed to kill, but they do.
