    Re: Mall Shooting In Nebraska

    The thing I find the most amazing is that he made it to the third floor with that gun simply wrapped in a sweat-shirt, and not a single person thought hey that looks odd.

    When is the US going to realize that we have gone well passed what the Constitution meant by right to bare arms.

    The Constitution was written during a time when you needed a gun for protection, because the nearest home may be miles away. Not to mention the fact that they were fighting a war for freedom, so they guns were needed for fighting for your family and country to be. Also to hunt for your food, or livelihood.

    The founding fathers wrote the Constitution, and even made changes during their own times, knowing that it was a work in progress. A living, growing document. They never would have imagined it would be taken as far as it has. I mean who needs a gun like the police have in their own home? I am amazed at the type of weapons that people are able to get their hands on, and how easy it is.

    I walked into a Wal-Mart store at 1:45am, in Pennsylvania with a 19 year old friend. He wanted to purchase a new rifle. This was about 10 years ago, and we worked the late shift, so it was not unusual for us to be awake at this time of night. So when he told me why we were there, I figured yeah, their gonna sell you a gun in the middle of the night. I could not have been more shocked when they did, and didn't even bat an eye. Then the sales person says, "If you want ammunition for that, you have to get it before 2:00am. We can't sell it to you after that."

    I know she saw the look on my face. My wrinkled forehead, and mouth agape, could not have been more obvious. All I kept thinking was, why is this so easy. We were two people in a Wal-Mart at almost 2:00am buying a rifle with scope and ammunition, and they were like, no problem! What could we have possibly been going to do with it, was not a concern.

    We need gun control in this country. REAL GUN CONTROL! Yeah, I know... We have rights. Well what about the rest of us! I have the right to expect that I wont get blown away while shopping at a mall. I have the right to expect that my niece will not get blown away at school. Most countries have strong gun control. Yeah (woof woof) I hear the bleeding hearts spouting about our basic rights. Well you know there are other basic rights that get blown away in a hale of bullets every day.

    Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness... Idiots like this mall shooter end many lives. They take away our liberty. They make no one happy, and they take away all pursuits from many every day. Where were their basic rights!

    Why didn't he just shoot himself first? Why destroy so many lives?

    With the size of your country...well thats kinda impossible.. i mean.. Malaysia is so small yet drugs, pirated merchandise, imported hookers, and many more Illegal things come in easily everyday... what of America which is so vast and big.. with the community of billions.... that'll be impossible...

    Why didn't he just shoot himself first? Why destroy so many lives?
    could be he is a cuckoo..or... he just want a few others to join him in death.. *sings to join me in death by him* you know... a company.. one or two... he should shoot his girlfriend actually.. but... thats a bad thing to.. he has no rights to take another's life.. unless... the other is trying to take his..

    Other countries manage gun control. Heck even Canada has gun control, They're bigger than us.

    As for the why didn't he... That was meant rhetorically, I know he was a nutter, I really didn't need clarification on that.

    yes, as an outsider, I too question the gun laws in America. IMO guns do not belong in the hands of everyday civilians. I hate to say but I'm not really surprised that this has happened with US gun laws. Stricter controls on guns are obviously needed.

    Yes people will still die from gun related crimes, yes people if they really try they can still get a gun. But if the laws just stops one depressed teenager from getting a gun, and stops shooting 10 people dead at a high school, or even prevents just one death, then it was a smooth move. Isn't prevention better than trying to stop the devastation as it's happening?

    My heart goes out to the victims & their families.

    Umbriel, gun control probably isn't the most effective way of preventing these killing sprees.
    They have happened in other countries as well even though those countries did have stricter gun laws.

    Nothing is wrong, at least not more than it used to be. And you shouldn't be scared either. That's like walking around scared every day because you think a meteor will fall on your head. In fact, getting scared or arming yourself because of it might even have the reverse effect. Fear can ruin your life.

    Rational thinking is what you need, not all that emotional crap. Learn to assess a situation and judge its potential danger. Getting afraid only locks you up and actually decreases your chances of survival.

    Thank you Hassun. Some rationality on the subject is nice. I knew it was just a mater of time before guns came up so I will just point one thing out that most people have missed. The mall was a gun free zone just like the schools and colleges that have been getting shot up. The problem isn't gun control it's that these people have places they can go without fear of being stopped until well after it is too late.

    Ah... no. They have more land, they are not bigger then us. Crime is directly linked to population density not the amount of unsettled wild lands.


    My sympathy to the victims families. Maybe someone will finally see the insanity of making shooting galleries and stop protecting these nuts with gun free zones.

    That wasn't the intention of gun free zones. Its to allow officers or security guards to stop people form concealing guns in these areas. In normal circumstances you should need to carry a gun to a mall or places like that. I know i wouldn't want to be around a bunch of gun nuts carrying guns. I guess they missed this guy. But it would make me feel better, to not walk around a mall and see a bunch of people packing heat.
