    I'm going to put this here because this guy will hopefully never legally be able to obtain a gun again. Making gun threats towards employees at a college is about the stupidest thing you can do these days.

    It's a hopeless situation...

    He looks like a normal doe eyed freshman to me. I remember I had a folding knife and brass knuckles my first day of college.  I was adorable in my innocence.

    Everyone should be allowed to buy and own a gun, why not? What could possibly go wrong? Just another pissed off “responsible” gun owner.

    There s plenty of 17 year old who are responsible with firearms however it is illegal for a 17 year old to be a gun owner.

    Lots of people killed in their own homes with guns as well. 

    This is beyond ridiculous. The lack of leadership on this is crazy.  The lack of foresight on issues is what is destroying the US. And this is the biggest issue where we are way beyond foresight now. We have data (deaths...including kids). How many more “red flags” do we need to take action?

    Why do we point out when a shooter is white but disregard when the shooter is black?  What are we trying to prove?  Two stories in the past few and  No mention that the shooter in Alabama was black, only the white shooter.

    Well I think we have a pretty big problem with mass shootings in this country. Almost all of the shooters are white guys.

    Don't worry gun owners.  The guilt must be terrible, but I'm sure you'll need to arm yourself in a militia to stop the government's takeover of the country at some point in time.  For now, rest easy as there is a reason all these people need to die in mass shootings.

    Beto O'Rourke refers to the shootings and gun situation as "fucked up".  Someone saying what it is.  Exactly.

    Well, you can relax because at least you know there might be a funeral home willing to provide your funeral gratis. Nothing can be done, particularly in Tejas where 4 of the last 10 most deadly mass shootings took place, except allow for more “responsible” gun owners.
