Iím a pro-gun hunter. Vegas proves gun rights need limits.

It is time for civility to reign — and madness to be snuffed out.

That is why I am for conditional access to military grade firearms. More complete background checks, for example, including medical records. Limits on stockpiling ammunition. Mandatory courses in safe usage.

And more broadly, we need to have a dialogue about the place of guns in our society. I am not for banning guns. I do support the right to bear arms. But when a right becomes an acute threat to the general welfare it is time for re-evaluation.

Brilliant!!

Because before he sets out to commit mass-murder, a killer will check to make sure he is obeying all appropriate gun laws!

Hunting has nothing to do with the second amendment. As long as this jerk can hunt, he’s cool.

It’s called the Bill of Rights, Tom. Not the Bill of Needs.
But he may be half-right. Maybe it is time for revolution.

Tell me, Tommy, is your Leftist Stupidity an acute pain, or just a dull ache that you think will go away if you drink enough?

Exactly. Just like in France on November 13, 2015. That cost only 130 lives.

How about these jerks wait to find out the truth about Las Vegas before making stupid comments? The entire incident smells.

Re-education is what Comrade Tommy Fudd really means.

Remember Sen. Bob Kerrey and his beautiful gun/ugly gun ad?

Ruger Red Label O/U versus AR-15. Keep one, ban the other.

tommy brokaw huh?

Well Tommy, the investigation so far on the Shooter has confirmed it was completely legal for him to purchase guns and to have passed a background check. So right there your entire thesis is blown up. No amount of gun laws could have stopped the LV shooting. What can stop such incidents is vigilance, vigilance, vigilance. For examples, hotels may now opt to scan all luggage coming and going just like airport security.

Since “military grade” is a made up marketing term, like “assault weapon”, this guy has no credibility.

The Second Amendment is not about the right to shoot; it is about the right to shoot back.

Well “little” tommy, you’re certainly writing for an appropriately named web site, because you’re full of Hot Air (you’re also full of something very stinky)!

"But when a right becomes an acute threat to the general welfare it is time for re-evaluation."

Even with the Las Vegas incident, "gun rights" are in no way "an acute threat to the general welfare". The news media is certainly blowing it up to appear that way, but it simply is not, as even a cursory examination of gun crime shows.

F this guy. We know your Leftist games. -—See look I’m pro gun and a hunter just like you and millions of other Americans. I’m just an ordinary guy, we just need some gun control (and confiscation).
