    • Moron,

      This is typical MAGA or Republican behavior as most of those (including yourself) are mentally ill/bigoted. This is what NRA wants and gets.

      Go Fuck Yourself and your racist ass.


      • Talk about a moron. You did not read the part in the article where he did not like Trumps stance on immigration. So it has nothing to do with MAGA or Republican but about someone who had massive issues and no one saw fight to get him help.


      • He hated Trump you one sided fucking idiot. He was a lefty, like you, who jumps to the truth, a liberal with a gun is the first problem. The second problem is you can’t fucking read and you are an ignorant asshole. but hey he’s on your side, Happier Now?


  1. Mentally ill people are everywhere.
    He couldn’t have killed this much people with a kitchen knife.
    Don’t let immigrants to have guns.
    Problem solved.


  2. Ok this incident is my boiling point. i am now anti-gun. whether i need a gun at some point in life to fight the “armed militia” that is my government no longer matters. I’ll risk it.

    There is no reason on earth why this sick monster should have been able to obtain a gun. Remove all guns from society. Guns are for law enforcement and the military. If we remove guns from society, law enforcement will find they themselves won’t even need a gun except the in the rarest of situations. We will also solve the problem of officer shootings if we make using a gun the last resort.

    Owning a gun should be like owning a nuclear bomb – just not possible.


    • That’s a great idea! Remove all guns from society. Then the only people that will have guns are police and criminals. Not too mention what fear would a criminal have when breaking in your home. He will be pretty sure you won’t have a gun, of course there will still be a LARGE black market for guns and he may have one. Your statement is naive.


    • unless he bought the gun illegally like china who mass produces firearms and ships them to Australia were criminals use them against unarmed civilians.. brilliant….


    • Consider; Gary Ridgway – more widely known as The Green River Killer – savagely murdered more people by himself than were lost at Columbine, Aurora, Sandy Hook, and San Bernardino combined and he never used a firearm during the commission of his mass brutality.
      John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Edward Gein, Donald Harvey, Lawrence Bittaker, Roy Norris, Kenneth Bianchi, Angelo Buono, OJ Simpson, the list of murder-intent monsters – who never used a firearm – is a horrifically long one.
      If we as a country, took all the firearms – from coast-to-coast – murderers would still commit murder, child molesters would still molest our children, and rapists would still commit rape.
