Gee, what a novel idea, punish the law breaker instead of law abiding gun owners. Who would have thought?

What I find interesting is that many members here believe that the Constitution of the United States guarantees the rights of all Americans, without exception, to own firearms.

Under those circumstances, the seller would have done nothing wrong in selling to someone he suspected had a mental illness.

To me that presents a riddle. If some people can have firearms and some people can't have, then the whole issue is who decides the parameters of ownership.

I suppose that is why we have several levels of courts in our system of justice.

The founders were wise men.
We as responsible gun owners and pro-constitution types know that giving dangerous items to dangerous people is a very bad idea. Someone that is mentally I'll does not have the mental capacity to respect another person's right to life. Hell, we got a whole segment that thinks yanking the brains out of living babies is perfectly ok... the constitution covers mentally ill and criminals by the act of due process of a court of law.

Someone that is found to be crazy, or a convicted criminal, we have decided as a society to have met due process. This is done on a case by case basis. Liberals think its ok to deny rights based solely on their personal feelings. Libs don't like guns so they are ok trampling on everyone else's constitutional rights across the board man woman child without due process

This happened in Montgomery County, which is just outside of Philadelphia. I don't know what would have happened in Philly, but Montco is a red county. Manned, managed and run by Republicans.

To hell with his upbringing, childhood, socio economic life, he committed a terrible crime leading to a LEO death, lock his tail up for a long time.

Maybe Rahm Emanual and King Bloomberg need to take notice.

My childhood was okay, as far as I can remember and from what I'm told (long term memory loss).

Now, my mid twenties....yeah, I was troubled then.
