    Think I found something very similar to the old article I was trying to remember. This shows that in many states, having a concealed carry permit allows you to bypass NICS. So, no 4473, could mean one less thing that would facilitate confiscation someday.
    Does Having a CCW Bypass Background Checks When Buying a Gun?

    That's not all, his AR pistol allegedly had a pistol brace on it.

    Braces will be Trump's new mission on guns to "get rid of."

    This is from the local TV station in Dayton, WHIOTV7. You can see the the lower was an Anderson. I think he assembled the lower himself (or someone else for him). The upper if I had to take a wild guess might be a Palmetto 10.5”.

    Since the gun configuration didn't seem to help him be more lethal it won't get the traction like Vegas did with bump stocks. I think this'll blow over especially if he's a leftist Trump hater.

    Kentucky has the "no nics with ccdw permit law"and there is still always a 4473 generated when purchasing a gun from an FFL.

    First Sethie, Your government did a bang(no pun intended)up job protecting the people of El Paso and Dayton. Secondly Sethie, What other constitutionally protected rights would your government take away?

    The left is prepared to murder but the right isn't. We'll bitch and moan and then do nothing. The individuals who do choose to do something will be painted as maniacs in the media and the majority of NES will agree.

    And right on cue here comes the Left fake outrage and that its EVERYONE'S fault and we need more of this and we need more of that...Go away you bore me, like always you FAKES aren't gonna do squat, And when and if you do make a move big deal the laws you have on the books now are failures and any other slivers of paper with words on it get passed around will be failures as well. People are waking to the Lefts fake outrage and games, you people don't solve problems YOU CAUSE THEM!...And what a shameful display of IGNORANCE to attack our President DISGUSTING human beings the Left is...disgusting.

    WILL NOT BE SEEN ON TV

    The shooter, Connor Betts, was 24 and from Bellbrook, Ohio. His alleged social media biography started to emerge late on Sunday night, with his Twitter page stating that he described himself as:

    “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.”

    On his alleged Twitter account, he promoted Antifa and the Democratic Socialists of America:

    He also appeared to be critical of President Trump's immigration policy, using the "concentration camp" rhetoric made popular by AOC:

    — Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) August 5, 2019
    The account called an Antifa terrorist who attacked an ICE facility a "martyr":

    ...and also retweeted pro communist Tweets:

    An interesting sting comment form the Police Chief this s morning. I wonder if it was modified for full auto or if he just mis-spoke.

    Bob

    The gun "was modified, in essence, to function like a rifle," he confirmed.

    "That much I can tell you. I'm sure you can talk to experts out there how that gets done and to avoid any legal prohibitions," he said.”

    Has everyone missed the shooters statements on social media where the shooter says he's a pro satan supporter that is a stated supporter of elizabeth warren?

    Both shooters were lefties, one was out right in support of Warren, the other rambled on about the un-sustainability of our way of life due to consumerism and corporatism, or some such socialist nonsense. Doesn't matter tho, sharks smell the blood of dead bodies and are being united behind a common assault on liberty.

    Yes, including a bunch of willing jingoservative fakepublicans all whining and hand wringing, then promptly jerking off about ERPOs and other meaningless bullshit that "feels good" while they try to pander to dumbasses, but all of it will have zero effect on "mass shootings" (whatever the f*** that term actually means, not sure considering the media and antis tend to change the definition every time it happens) all the while ignoring the daily violent crime epidemics in several big dump cities, because well, those involve mostly brown people, and we all know the media doesn't care much about brown people, unless you're a virtue signaling politician that happens to be brown, then the cameras will roll nonstop, but outside of that, not much attention is shown...

    Of course the dems want more restrictions or outright bans. These shooters are part of the dems voting base. They can't have people see what kind of monsters the dems really are.

    Tactical aids that provide enhanced vision to make these dangerous predatory deadlier. We must ban glasses for the children. No one needs perfect vision.

    Yeah. If bad hair cuts, grey tops and wire-framed glasses are an indicator of the next mass shooter, a lot of you better get contacts and a better hair stylist. Maybe a pop of color in your daily wear as well. LOL

    Those guys look NOTHING alike. But they have bad hair, gray clothes and wire-framed glasses. Totally 2 different people. But it's the "uniform" of young aimless young men.

    This was 20 freaking years ago. TWENTY YEARS AGO!

    I find it totally amazing that we are actually WORSE than then. We're approaching 40yo boys and 50yo boys. And more and more of them every generation. They need a dad in the house, an ass kicking and get with the program. Stop the coddling.

    Those two are similar but different people. The ElPaso kids pic compared to his arrest pic dont even look like the same people.

    LOL. I'm reading Peterson's book and the first chapter is on standing up straight. He did this whole thing on how lobsters set their own fate by winning or losing and their posture and chemical nature changes as an outcome. It was classically Virgin vs. Chad. LOL

    So what does it mean that I have some Virgin characteristics, some Chad characteristics, and some that are exclusively 100% pure SpaceCritter?

    I've seen the meme for a while now and here are two skinny kids with grey shirts, bad haircuts and glasses who fit the look at least to a tee.
