Just curious, what laws currently on the books would have prevented these last three mass shootings. As far as "harsher penalties", two of the three most recent murderers have been given the harshest penalties (thankfully) and the third will never see free light again. When these murderers decide to pick up that weapon and start shooting, do you really think they are worried about how many years they are going to get. No doubt there are a few Democrats calling for NO guns, but most are calling for "GUN SAFETY" laws. I live in a state (NEW JERSEY) with some of the countries strongest gun laws. It took me 5 months to get my permit to buy, AFTER I filled out an extensive application. And at the actual sale I had to wait an additional 45 minutes for another check. There are NO carry permits. But I am ok with it all. What is wrong with background checks. But even those checks may not have prevented a legal owner from going crazy. I'm not sure how the wall would positively prevent mass murders tho. What it looks like in the first few posts seems more about urban/city gun crime which seems to be a way of life. The thing I see soon after these mass murders is so many people complaining about protecting gun rights instead of protecting innocent people. Here is another thought, Texas has fairly liberal carry laws and still 20 were killed.
