I only wish he understood that himself. Allowing himself to be a

Yes he was. However...the gun he carried turned out to be entirely
unnecessary and even irrelevant. Ironic to use him as a "poster boy"
loosening already loose handgun restrictions in a state where, as I
understand it, a carry permit is not even required now. Perhaps this
terrible tragedy might not have happened had the laws been a little
well, i miss the irony, and i don't think that tighter gun laws would
have stopped this shooting. maybe i need more information, but i
don't see the connection.
I think you're right. We have the laws in place; we just have too many
*illegal* guns. If we had tougher background checks, he might not have
bought his legally, but finding an illegal one wouldn't have been hard.
