    “I’ve been a proponent of the 2nd amendment my entire life. Until the events of last night. I cannot express how wrong I was. We actually have members of our crew with [Concealed Handgun Licenses], and legal firearms on the bus,” Keeter wrote. “They were useless.” He continued:

    We couldn’t touch them for fear police might think we were part of the massacre and shoot us. A small group (or one man) laid waste to a city with dedicated, fearless police officers desperately trying to help, because of access to an insane amount of fire power.

    Enough is enough.

    Writing my parents and the love of my life a goodbye last night and a living will because I felt like I wasn’t going to live through the night was enough for me to realize that this is completely and totally out of hand. These rounds were just powerful enough that my crew guys just standing in close proximity of a victim shot by this f—ing coward received shrapnel wounds.

    We need gun control RIGHT. NOW. My biggest regret is that I stubbornly didn’t realize it until my brothers on the road and myself were threatened by it. We are unbelievably fortunate to not be among the number of victims killed or seriously wounded by this maniac.

    "We couldn't touch our guns on the bus because the police would have shot us, thinking we were across the street, down the block, and 32 floors up in a hotel room shooting people just seconds ago."

    What kind of an idiot is this guy?

    Ok. A little battle testing and the weasel is ready to surrender his Constitutional rights. Crabby, please research why the founders wanted us to have weapons. Pay particular attention to what "regulated" and "militia" meant AT THE TIME THE BILL OF RIGHTS WAS WRITTEN.

    A "Liberal Paradise" would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only Law Enforcement has guns. And believe it or not, such a place does indeed exist …… It’s called prison.

    We already have hundreds of gun control laws on the books. Even in the gun control nirvana of France, the people who comitted the Batlacan massacre not too long ago had no problem getting fully automatic weapons to do their evil deed.

    Evil exists at the present time here on earth, and until Jesus returns it will remain with us.

    In spite of what the FBI says, I think that this scumbag had converted to Islam and was working for ISIS.

    Yes. Now a guitar player is an expert on social problems in the US.

    Yep. If we ban guns the violence would end. Just like England did. (Which resulted in a violent crime rate 5 times higher than in the US.)

    You know, we should make drunk driving illegal. That would stop all those accidents from happening.

    We should make drugs illegal. That would stop all those over-doses.

    We should make murder illegal. That would have stopped all these killings.

    We should make shooting into a crowd illegal. That would have kept a lot of people from having to go to the hospital.

    Yep, that is what we need. A law that only restricts guns in the hands of law abiding people. That will fix everything.

    The OP is now permabanned for trying to sneak back onto BB under other names while temporarily banned. So, this thread is closed.
