Yet another mass shooting carried out using a weapon that was banned under the AWB of 1994. Yes, the AWB did not stop all gun violence because it was focused on a particular style of weapon commonly used in mass shootings. However, the numbers show significant decreases in mass shootings during the ban and a dramatic rise after the ban was lifted in 2004.
...
Had the ban remained in effect, Reinking would not have been able to purchase such a weapon that would have been returned to his father under IL law after being confiscated by the FBI after the WH incident. The law preventing Reinking from repossession of the weapons is one that can be enforced only if Reinking is discovered to be in possession of the weapons.
...
What we'll see today from gun nuts are deflections and all sorts of gaslighting. Yesterday, they tried to use some bizarre alternative of a Ryder truck being worse (must have been the alt-right meme of the day). Then, there will be the "sporting rifle" deflection as if that really makes any sense. That same person once equated AR-15s to muzzle loaders.

The father should be charged for murders as well in this case.

"We suspect some mental issues..." said the police chief. This is just an aside, but it is interesting that when the shooter in these incidents is white it's a mental health issue. When the shooter is black, brown, or middle-eastern, then it's terrorism.

We have to vote out the self-serving NRA bastards. This will be my number one litmus test.

4 people shot ?

I thought those scary looking weapons have the capacity to gun down huge numbers of people and THAT is the reason they must be banned.

TrrTrimmer...........yes, the father should be held responsible for those deaths as he violated the CURRENT gun laws with forbid the son from possessing a gun.

What we need is stricter enforcement of CURRENT gun laws.
What good does it do to pass more gun laws when we are lax enforcing the ones already here?

We need more laws. Specifically, if laws banning interstate transportation of this man's AR-15 had been in existence when the Secret Service found him with it near the White House, the gun could have been confiscated pursuant to his arrest, and these murders at the Waffle House with this particular weapon could not have happened.
.
And tell the four who died and their families that they should be happy only four died before a good guy WITHOUT a gun bravely stopped it. Small comfort, indeed.

Boltar I decided on this one not to discuss rational points with irrational, drunk old racists. It’s not worth the effort.
