would have minimal impact on eliminating or reducing the frequency of such occurrences. It would, however, offer a positive showing for politicians eager to gain or maintain more control of DC. They could always attempt to ban and confiscate such weapons but that only goes so far. What they can't ban or confiscate is the desire these shooters have to carry out such evil. I do find it interesting that, in so many cases, it's found that these killers gave signals to someone that they were dangerous. But our laws don't allow for a person to be held based on prediction.
Reuters has an audio feed just now of a press conference in re treatment of victims.
Half dozen or so military ER/trauma medics flown in from somewhere. Military, because 'That's the kind of injuries we're seeing here.'
Among other takeaways, the lead surgeon's expert opinion was of 'a high-velocity projectile wound' to one man. (They'll have to replace half his foot.) Military; likely not an "AK type" but "an AR type". US, smaller caliber, higher velocity.
Only reason for the existence of such a weapon is to kill human beings, as their inventors could tell us.
Trump did get something right. Mental illness should be targeted as a proximate cause. (In England and Japan the crazies do their killing with knives.) However, that sort of illness is so widespread and ingrained that none of man's governments can handle it. Not even one with a good track record of caring for the vulnerable.
The first recorded crime was disobedience. The second was murder.
Here's what y'all are up against. 2Tim 3:1-5. Yet, after the last days cited there, comes Rev 21:3,4. That's what we're guaranteed.
