Default Another shooting: Ex Marine kills two co workers with AK-47

Whether it was actually an Ak-47 and automatic pistol, who knows? Given the source. Still tragic none the less. In another heavily anti gun state.

Already a thread up and running - perhaps a mod can link them?

Sorry. I don't go by the state forums much.

You carry a former Marine in camoflauge gear to your deer camp? Wouldn't it be easier to just let him walk for himself?

I would agree that carrying a semi-automatic or automatic rifle and a side-arm could easily be interpreted by non-gun enthusiasts as "heavily armed". It's a matter or perspective.

Regarding the story, that is really sad. I wonder why a 23 year old man is an ex-marine. What happened to his military career and how did he end up working a graveyard shift in a supermarket? The article says that family "were unaware of any mental problems". I think it's safe to say that there were mental problems. Well adjusted and happy/content people doing usually go on a murder/suicide binge. That's one of my biggest worries about our society...nobody talks to each other about how we feel. That kids own family hadn't a clue that there were feelings building up inside him that drove him to this. These days it's only acceptable to tell someone how you feel if you are lying on a complete strangers couch paying them $300/hour it seems.

But I thought those were illegal in New Jersey. They ought to make a law against laws that don't accomplish anything. But that law would probably be illegal after it was drafted.

Oh my god you gotta be kidding me, what are these people doing?!
Say goodbye to your military type rifles. Uncle Sam will be knocking on the door for them in a few months.

Liberal agenda...

1-Run this story front and center to "inform" the public...but neglect to make mention of the 200 times today a gun saved a life...

2-Place blame at the feet of the NRA...

3-Place more blame at our feet...(gunowners)...err, umm, redneck gun nut whackjobs...

4-Demand more "laws" because we have "A right to feel safe"...(I still laugh when they spew this crap out...That amendment must have been in the OTHER Bill of Rights...

5-Re-new the AWB because its just SOOOO important and effective...

6-Do all this as quickly as possible, must exploit tragedy for political gain...
