    Elliot Rodger shootings...people always have to blame the NRA.

    The father of one of the victims tearfully blamed the NRA for his child's death. While I sympathize with his suffering, and understand that he wants someone to point the finger at, the NRA should not be that target. In these types of events, people are always looking for a cause, while overlooking simple, undeniable fact. A disturbed individual was at fault, and no one else. Not the NRA, not his parents, not public schools, not politicians, not the guns he used, or the stores who sold them to him. The individual himself, and only the individual, can be blamed. He is the one that planned the murders and pulled the triggers, period. Maybe if getting a legal permit to carry a concealed weapon were significantly easier, some of those victims could have not only saved themselves, but stopped this lunatic from killing the others! Of course you never see this angle in the media...it's always "blame the NRA".

    Yeah, what about the NKA and the NCA? Most of the damage was done with a knife and a car...

    Let's all write our congressmen and ask them to ban cars and knives.
    Don't you dare. Cars, meh...but trucks and jeeps and land rovers? Don't give them ideas. And I love my knives.

    Don't sweat this one guys. That lame blame thing was so silly I can't even imagine the anti's put any stock in it.

    Where did you find this info? I was under the impression the guns were purchased legally. He was a nut job that should have been flagged in the NICS check if the doctors were allowed, or mandated, to report individuals withe mental issues...

    Have not seen a complete list of the weapons this nut had....he was indeed a nutjob. Of the 6 victims{this asshole was not a victim} 3 were killed with a knife, two with handguns, and one with vehicle...I was guessing from his manifesto, rambling as it was, that his apartment room was a filled with weapons of all types that he was collecting...I guess we will find out more as the situation unfolds. It appears his parents tried to turn him in....but the authorities, whoever they might be, basically ignored the pleas.

    First three were knifed. Probably could have got a higher body count if he had stuck to just the knife. I doubt anyone had an idea he was active till they heard the gunshots. Senseless, disturbing, I feel for all the parents. The outspoken father no doubt felt a lot of frustration and anger. Shame on the press for invading his life during such an intense moment of grief.

    You can bet if the grieving farther had blamed Obama and the open borders{which doesn't apply in situation of course} for something like this.....it would have been ignored by the press with extreme prejudice...but since he took a shot at the NRA, they were all over it....

    I've asked for angels to visit the victims' survivors, even the moronic gun hater.

    Wow I hadn't even thought of that - ironically I think you are right. He could have potentially killed more if no one had heard the gun shots and called the police, especially if it were done out of sight of others (as the stabbings inside the apartment presumably were).
    KJ, just KJ, ok.
