Summing up /pol/’s...
I've also heard since I made this post that the guy was a super-lefty
Too soon to say if any actions were political, but even if they were I almost doubt the public would hear any of it. The media has an agenda they have to stick to ya know?
From what I've heard, the left bit was false flag. It'll come out what's what eventually in either case.
Yeah, like I said, too much about this is convenient and shift for me to trust many sources on any of it.

I completely agree with the mental health aspect of your argument. It needs
more attention and people need safety nets before they go out and kill people.
One of the things i would like to argue is that gun owning citizens prevent crime. You say people are less like to rob if the store owner has a gun. I am sure there are plenty stories of crimes being stopped by lawfull gun owners, but I am talking big picture. Do guns prevent more crimes than they create? If so, then the US should have fewer petty theft, muggings or crime rates. It does not. The problem being that the store owner could easily have a gun but so could the criminal. Now a crime over a couple 100 dollars turns into a fatal incident for one or both of the people involved.
Another point is the fear that criminals would hold all the guns and civilians would be helpless. This is so rarely the case in any of the other western countries that do have tighter gun control. When a crazy goes on a killing spree in London its with a knife and 2 officers get injured. Australia banned guns with the result of greatly reduced mass shootings and homicides.
I strongly believe one of the reasons cops in the US are so trigger happy is because any civilian has a good chance of having a gun on them and they have to treat EVERY SINGLE encounter as having the possibility of having a fatal outcome.
You gave a well reasoned argument but is it maybe a possibility to consider that, in aggregate, gun control could improve many of these factors?
My counter to the less petty crimes is that (and I don't have a direct source but its a fairly logical conclusion too) that a large majority of those crimes occur in cities. Cities are where gun laws are usually the strictest. Thus less people have guns because they are so much harder to get. Thus those crimes are inflated there. Outside influences include: We have a shit ton of large cities, we have lots of small gangs within cities that will organize crime more, and I'll out right say it, we have a lot of black people that are in shitty situations so they get turned to crime.
So, unrelated to the gun control issue itself, lots of crime gets fixed by fixing the issues black communities, and any poor community for that fact, are facing. Better educated, better lifestyle people drastically cut down the amount of crime. So help the poor and there goes a large majority of the crime. But no one wants to help the poor (upper part of society I'm talking) because then you start to unite the people and a united people don't take shit from the powerful with the money because they get tired of their shit. Its why the media does nothing but cause division among the people. It keeps people against each other and they can keep raking in money from the sensationalism.
Im from Colombia and gun restrictions are tighter over there than the US. Colombia is pretty much a shithole compare to the US. Crime is higher over there. Deaths are higher and even getting a gun illegally is actually easier. Even with the presence of military and people still die. Now you might or might not say, there aren’t any mass shootings i last heard in Colombia. Well majority of people who have done mass shootings in the US have no knowledge on how to kill lots of people in one go. So they decide to shoot cause it’s easier. If gun control happens people who’d want mass killings will get more creative. Some will learn how to make home explosives, Deadly gases or even just grab a knife and have a go at it. Granted people died but with his vantage point it was something like d day. Nothing could have done anything about it. They were just fish in a barrel. It could’ve been with pipe bombs and just chug em. Could have had more collateral than just rifles. So no matter what the government will do there will always be someone who is gonna be creative enough to get a high score on mass killings. I’m very sorry for the long post
A one state example is not really convincing if anyone can and will drive one state over and not have to deal with regulations.
Forcing people to get more creative or use less effective means still weeds out the unimaginative. Still a win in my book.
Now we are just stuck in a loop.
people cry "GUNS ARENT THE PROBLEM"
Maui was the shit
Forgot to add something but the loop is right. Everyone denies one side or another and some shit happens. So in reality what can be the best solution. Without hindering rights and prevent such acts from happening. Is it education? Awareness, gun control? What can be done to try and stop this acts from happening? It’s a hard question to answer due to the fact there are so many variables. Everyone is not going to be happy with whatever is decided. But let’s See what happens. Once again sorry for long posts
but who’s to say that some man who’s had no prior problems (for the Vegas shooter any prior problems have not been released yet) just go on a mass killing spree. Shootings happen on this day and age because weapons are more efficient than they used to be. Now I don’t think the problem is the tools. I think the problem is people. But we can’t help everybody. Now I can agree that everyone getting weapons should be checked on any prior history of anything, but if you are law abiding citizen that’s just taking away your first amendment. I own 2 pistols, now am I going to go somewhere and shoot up the place no. Neither is majority of people. My problem is people in general. Some can try to commit a horrific act just to have their names in their history books, or even just outright want to kill because they want to.
I forgot to add this sentence in to that second category for smaller crimes: Having more guns is what helps to prevent crime.
