Don't look for me to engage. When Al sees this, smoke will begn spewing from his ears because he doesn't think I need to have guns. Smile I'm just posting something I read. Y'all can bicker it to kingdom come. I'm with David Hardy. That's all folks.

Santa Monica shooter
By David Hardy
Tucson attorney
Of Arms and the Law
9 June 2013
http://armsandthelaw.com/


Clayton Cramer has interesting thoughts. Reports indicate that the
shooter had (surprise!) serious mental health issues, which led to his
commitment (unknown if it was voluntary or involuntary, but if the
latter it's a bar to gun possession and should have flagged him).
California has had an "assault weapon ban" since the year he was born,
requires all sales to be after a background check since he was a
toddler, and banned transfers of larger magazines since he was eleven.

In short, he's an example of why (1) passing gun laws will not affect a
murderous mental case and (2) why we really need to fix the mental
health system.

Quick additinal note on the commitment issue: Even if we assume the best case scenario, that the commitment on his record was a voluntary 72-hour psychiatric hold, it would've been illegal for him to possess a firearm for the next 5 years.

Scott, is that a legal position you're certain of? Thanks for sharing that because it was one of the points I thought about before deciding to post this. Still, how can we define "a few years ago" as I've read in various accounts?

Here's my source (See section III, subsection 2): http://michellawyers.com/wp-content/uplo......arms.pdf

That source indicates that it IS possible to terminate the five year period early. (Probably you can thank the NRA for that loophole, but that is conjecture on my part.)

Back to the first post in this thread, the Santa Monica shooter case does NOT prove point (1). In fact, it may even illustrate the opposite. Without more information, we cannot really say.

Point (2) is great. But isn't who pays a consideration? Well, unless one believes in unicorns and that healthcare is free.

Of course we can blame the NRA. Why not? They are the root of all the problems in the world right?

This one hit close to home. The shooter opened fire on a bus less than a hundred yards from my office. I walked outside to see the bus filled with holes, glass shattered, people on the ground (thank God none of them were killed but it's still jarring to see up close.)

We were moved to a location away from the area while they searched for him. Terrifying stuff.

A symbol can invoke a feeling or an idea and often has a much more profound and deeper meaning than any one word can convey. At the same time, these symbols can leave you confused and wondering what that dream was all about.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Balducci- on point 2 above and who pays for fixing the mental health care system?

Answer- We all do, one way or another: fix it, and we pay the cost. Or don't fix it, and we pay the cost. The only question is which cost is more dear.

Yes, I know. I was (somewhat sarcastically) voicing the same objection to it (expanded health care benefits) that I have read on this board and elsewhere many, many times.

I blamed no one. I said the NRA can probably be thanked. I think it is a thousand times more likely that the NRA or its ilk pushed for a loophole allowing a waiting period to terminate early, than some anti-gun liberal lobby. You honestly disagree? In case you missed it, I did say "probably".

Whatever the case, is it really arguable that any such mass shooting doesn't involve mental illness or incapacity?

The title of thread seems to be somewhat tautological, perhaps intentionally so.

Anyway, my heart goes out to the victims and bereaved.

I believe I already know your answer, but I'll give you the benefit of doubt and ask anyway. Would you mind explaining yourself so we might take your comments seriously? Then again, from most of your posts, I gather you do not wish to be taken seriously.

So I would then ask, why should we even pay attention to your comments if you don't explain them?

Just seeking light brother. That's all.
