I have come to the conclusion that gun ownership endows people with psychic abilities .
As soon as the anti gun bills hit the floor was there anyone who didn't see this coming ?
The Dems have become beyond predictable to the point that any thought I might have had that thinking it was all tin foil are long gone.
Joe Shmo gun owner from anywhere in the country can call it like clockwork.

"Alissa, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Syria"

"There were criminal reports for a third-degree assault in 2017 and for criminal mischief in 2018, the department said."

"According to the court affidavit, Alissa had purchased a Ruger AR-556 semi-automatic pistol - a weapon that resembles a semi-automatic rifle and has a 30-round capacity - on March 16, six days before the shooting."

"The sight alarmed his family. The gun didn't look like a rifle featured in old Western movies, Alissa's sister-in-law told police, according to an arrest affidavit. Rather, it looked like a "machine gun."

"Alissa said a bullet had become stuck. The family took it away from him, upset he was playing with a gun in the house."

"His sister-in-law, whose name was redacted from the court document, told investigators that she believed the gun his family had taken from Alissa was back in his room as of Monday night."

How was he not prohibited?


edit:
I am going to add that I thought I read earlier in the thread he was convicted to a three yer stint for something. That is why I feel perplexed that he was able to buy a firearm. I thought all firearm sales required a federal background check. Either I am wrong or he wasn't ever convicted or there is a serious problem with the system, or all three.

Rosenthal does not waste an opportunity![puke]

Adrian Walker is a Globe columnist. He can be reached at [email protected]. Follow him on Twitter @Adrian_Walker.

John Rosenthal has been a hunter longer than he has been a gun control activist. So he has a fascination with what government is, and isn’t, willing to regulate when it comes to weapons.

“When you hunt — and the NRA has no problem with needing a license to hunt — you can have three rounds [of ammunition] for ducks and five rounds for deer,” Rosenthal explained Tuesday. “But when you want to hunt humans, there’s no limit.”

Our nation’s sick devotion to weaponry is front and center once again in the wake of two mass shootings in just one week. They claimed the lives of eight victims in Georgia and 10 more Monday in Boulder, Colo.

Following a mass shooting in 2014, there was a mordant headline in The Onion that summed up our failure to stop these tragedies: " ‘No Way To Prevent This’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens.” It wasn’t funny, or intended to be.

President Biden called Tuesday for an assault weapons ban, but the political will to address this deadly issue has been in short supply for ages.

As the head of the advocacy group Stop Handgun Violence, Rosenthal has been at the forefront of sensible gun legislation for nearly 30 years. He was the guy behind the billboard on the Mass. Pike that tallied the lives lost to gun violence.

Like other activists, Rosenthal believes that a culture of mass murder isn’t something we have to live with.

And he believes Massachusetts — which boasts the nation’s lowest rate of gun deaths — offers the proof of that.

“You don’t need an assault weapon or a large-capacity magazine for anything other than killing people,” he said. “Or outgunning cops.”

The NRA and its sycophants in government like to pretend that gun control is about taking up all the guns.

While I would be fine with a country without guns, that argument is little more than a scare tactic. Ridding ourselves of this horror — or at least greatly reducing it — can be done through a few steps.

The weapons of mass destruction — the assault weapons and the high-capacity magazines — have to go. Many people have forgotten that several assault weapons actually were banned from 1994 to 2004. They remain illegal in Massachusetts.

Other Massachusetts policies should be adopted elsewhere. Licensing and background checks for gun owners are essential. Here, local police chiefs can refuse licenses to people who have passed background checks when certain other red flags are present.

Finally, gun manufacturers should be held legally responsible for producing weapons that can be used safely.

“None of the things we’ve done cause any inconvenience to responsible gun owners,” Rosenthal said. “But they don’t give unrestricted access to guns to people who can’t pass background checks or who want to kill a lot of people quickly.”

Like many of us, Rosenthal has watched with horror as the mass shootings have mounted, without any meaningful response from government — many calls to action, yes, but little action.

Sandy Hook changed nothing. Parkland changed nothing. The killing of 60 people in Las Vegas in 2017 changed nothing. Despite huge public support for banning weapons of mass destruction and for getting guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them, our so-called leaders shrug.

“Three of our major gun laws were signed by Republican governors. And they didn’t lose their seats.”

The why of America’s permanent epidemic of mass shootings is complicated, and varies. But the how is maddeningly consistent. Killing large numbers of people is simply far too easy in this country.

There is no constitutional right to slaughter other people. But we have a history of being outraged for a while, and then looking away until the next tragedy.

We talk a lot about how much we value human life. Ending the carnage would be one way to prove it.

Maybe the cases were dropped? We’ll never know.

Where’d he find an AR pistol in stock?

Not all Muslims are terrorist, but all terrorists are Muslim. Can't say that about Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists etc...

You really know nothing about history if that's what you really believe. Also.....US based domestic terrorists....wait for it....almost all white Christians.

WTF. Lmfao. First it is a semi-automatic rifle. Second it's capacity is whatever you make it by choosing a magazine.

Sen Durbin is from Ill and has almost as much history calling for AWB/Gun control as DiFi does......

This shouldnt surprise anyone.....the facts of this crime are public now and is going to be a bucket of cold water on the narrative that gun controllers and media are trying to pimp to influence votes on already unconstitutional legislative efforts

What story? This story is dead. You won’t hear about it in two days.

Apparently, the shooter was known to the FBI ...

Failure Bureau Inc, too busy worried about those insurrectionists in DC, maybe?

Hate to break it to him but Mass is far from the state with the lowest "Gun Deaths" as he put it........

Mass's neighbor to the north is a constitutional carry state with NONE of the kooky gun control Mass has and it boasts a murder rate with firearms that is a small fraction of Mass.

Not only that but NH annually boasts the lowest amount of gun control while simultaneously having one of the top 1-4 lowest murder rates with firearms.....year after year

So MAYBE....just MAYBE gun laws have no bearing on "violence"

People who think the Democrats in the senate won't use the nuclear option to pass anti gun laws are looking pretty stupid rn, like Fudd levels stupid. The Democrats already know they're gone in 18 months and they're back to treading water as a minority in Congress and once they open up the nuclear option to legislation they can pass whatever they want because they know the Republicans don't have the guts to use the same nuclear option to repeal the gun regulations.

When the Left are outright making shit up about a Syrian Muslim being a White Supremacist (when all those he murdered were White) to further a narrative to justify more gun laws, they could have a fugging Crips member go shoot up a daycare center and they'd say it's White Supremacy and guns need to be banned.

... What happens if you have to pull your firearm out to protect your family and other from the shooter- Cops arrives. What will be the protocol you use so you will not be mistaken for a second shooter? There is no training that I know of that can provide guidance.
  1. Take shelter.
  2. Don't even draw your weapon unless an assailant is headed right for you - store video will be scoured afterwards.
  3. Don't go looking for trouble - it can find you if it wants; get to an exit.
  4. Holster and conceal before leaving the building.
  5. Make a beeline for some business where you can hang out all day if necessary; a business which is not even visible from the store/mall under siege.
  6. Get someone else from your party to fetch your car after the excitement is well over.
Now you're trained.

You're welcome.

The training at work only shows using a fire extinguisher to fight off the guy with an M16, and mentions maybe using scissors if you aren't too scared

:rolleyes:
