The real cause of this crime is racism within the black community. That older white man was targetted because of his race.
This country has too many guns. Any sociopath can get one. This sociopath killed a pastor's husband for no reason. When will we wake up and say enough is enough?
We outlawed dangerous shooting too. What's your point?
what!?! wait a minute. i thought we outlawed dangerous driving. damn!
That is a false statement.

I moved overseas for work to a country with very tight gun laws and virtually no guns in the public sphere. After my first contract finished I chose to stay, largely because it is the first time in my life I have really felt free in my day-to-day life. Americans have NO idea what kind of basic freedom they are giving up by choosing to allow guns to be readily available. You can't understand what freedom really is until you live somewhere where the possibility of being randomly gunned down is not a part of your everyday reality.
What are the odds that this gun was not purchased legally? Puts a dent in your argument if it was not a registered weapon.

Guns don't kill people...the mentally ill and "urban youths" kill people.
I agree that people kill people. But it's much easier to kill someone when you have a gun.
Way too many guns in this country. Columbine, Virginia Tech. Jogger outside a gas station. What's it going to take for you to say enough is enough?
Neither is living in fear of being shot.

Security is not freedom.
are you trolling or are you actually arguing that Canada would be safer if we allowed guns?
What about the innonecent people that have been gunned down in Canada with illegal hand guns? Shouldn't they have had a right to protect themselves?
We need guns because we have viloent people im America. Take the guns away and those violent peole don't go away they just become more empowered...
what about the 8,000 home invasions that happen in America each day? Do you want your child, wife, mother, friend or relative walking in on one of those?
The debate will go on forever...we will never rid this country of guns....
400,000 people die each year from smoking and our kids are becoming fat shits and will be dropping dead from cariovascular disease at alarming rates--this is where are voices and energy should be...???
source? are you really saying that 1 in every 200 people has defended themselves from violent crime with a gun? maybe you misread and it said 1.5 thousand?
Here is something else to consider for anti-gun people: About 18,000 murders were committed in 2011 of which about 63 percent were committed with a gun. However, on the other side of that is 1.5 million (conservative figure) people that used a gun for self defense against violent crime...Take the guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens and many of those 1.5 million people defending themselves would also be dead! Thus, raising your murder rate in the USA! It's a numbers game...criminals will always get guns!
