    This might take the attention off Zimmerman.
    The media and the peeepul have a short attention span.

    He`d have been better off turning the gun on himself. (Ideally before the incident!)

    When will our worthless politicians grow enough balls to stand up to the NRA? There is absolutely no reason anyone should be able to buy tear gas cannisters or 100 round ammo magazines, regardless how one feels about gun control.

    Glock, absolutely right. Not much to do about random idiots, however, being able to access weapons that have no purpose other than to kill something other than dinner is ludicrous. The US has had 22 mass killings in 2012. No other country comes close. No other country allows such unrestricted access to non-sport weapons.

    Yeah, tear gas and what not should not be so easy to get.

    The only thing I care about this case at this point is why he did it. Was he insane and think he was the joker, or did he have a political message?

    Gerry, the NRA facilitates these types of crimes by bullpoo arguments that our country is safer if everyone is armed. Weapons+Idiots=Victims. Can`t get rid of idiots so maybe the equation is altered by either getting rid of the weapons OR regulating types of weapons to minimize victims at the least.

    Mass killings, however, are not uniquely American. If you combine most European countries (....since we have way more population than any one of them), the amount of mass killings aren`t that different. A quick search showed that Europe had the Toulouse shooter, some Finland shootings, the Norwegian guy, the Liege attack, and more all very recently.

    The American rate overall is higher because of the drug war, primarily. Gun laws shouldn`t be so free, but it must be understood that guns are definitely not the sole cause of it and the "gun-free" lands of Europe are not a crime safe haven.

    PF - it`s a good copy so understandable you fell for it. He`s duplicated all of my info on the profile page and avatar.

    For the record you are right, guns DO kill people.
    In the same way knives kill people or cars kill people.

    @Handimanner
    Mass shootings are far from a US phenomenon. Norway has very tight gun laws yet a guy last year managed to shoot and kill 77 people. Crazy people do crazy things, you can`t stop them. If he couldn`t get guns it would have been something else. He could have gone around stabbing people with a pencil. So would you ban writing instruments? Whats to stop him from getting in his car and plowing into people? The internet should be banned because there are recipes for making explosives on it. Everything should be banned because people might use something to kill other people. You are kidding yourself if you think banning certain firearms or even all firearms will stop a determined person from going on a killing spree. It is sad what happened. But no amount of legislation will stop the next guy from going off.

    @handimanner - I`m definitely pro-gun but I do agree with you. There`s no reason a f*cking "civilian" should be able to purchase tear gas cannisters that are made for police/military purposes. Also, they checked his online purchases and the crazy motherf*cker bought 4 guns & 6,000 rounds of ammunition. How the hell does that not raise a few red flags?!

    Would you like to explain how someone could easily kill a dozen people and injure dozens more in a few minutes, using only a pencil as a stabbing weapon?

    When your argument requires such absurd examples to support it, it`s almost always a sign that your argument is wrong.

    Multiple killings of randomly chosen victims in a single spree are far harder to do without guns. That really shouldn`t be surprising, since multiple killings in a single spree is exactly what a gun is designed for unless it`s a single-shot weapon.

    Not really the most successful have been done with lets see Jets, diesel fuel with fetilizer and posioned kool aid.

    @handimanner: The USA is the 3rd largest country in the world, they have "more" of everything!

    I dare-say Mexico leads the way in mass killings, eh? Followed closely by Venezuala...

    A LOT has been made on the MSM News about his having "6,000 rounds of ammunition" as if LAWS could somehow prevent him from SHOPPING!!! lolz!

    vv Oh lookie! @whodat6484 drank the kool-aid too!
    6,000 rounds of ammunition = bought them on sale! A bullet, by itself, is harmless (unless you toss it into a bonfire or something)!

    Actually this may be bad for Zimmerman: the insane AG might think she`s immune to public scrutiny now...

    @5Cats - Nope, I don`t like kool-aid, I`m saying that should raise red flags. In NYS you can`t even buy handgun ammo if you don`t have a concealed carry permit. Also, when you do buy said handgun ammo with your permit, they keep track of how much is purchased, even if it is from multiple stores. It all goes to one centralized database that all the gun/ammo retailers & websites have access to. Even buying rifle/shotgun ammo in large quantities is noted and you`re required to show ID (driver`s license) and that information is kept on file as well. I know this for a fact because I have a concealed carry permit and several friends in state & local law enforcement.

    McGovern, don`t be an idiot. When was the random mass killing with poisoned kool-aid? Jim Jone`s followers weren`t random at all. And it wasn`t done over night. It took a long time for hime to gain their trust.

    Also, our country now tracks the sale of fertilizer a lot more closely than it tracks firearm and amunition sales.

    You saying something dosen`t make it a fact check your facts! Many of Jim Jones followers were forced to drink the kool aid BTW hard to know exactly seeing as the witnesses are dead. In columbine they made bombs from propane tanks keep trying to ban see where it gets you.

    @whodat6484: Yeah, and all that money spent tracking that data? How many crimes has it "prevented"?
    Zero.
    How many crimes has it "solved"?
    Zero.
    IF the money had been spent elsewhere, might more crimes have been prevebted or solved?
    Yes.

    Case closed.

    In Canada we had a "long rifle registery" which cost Several Billions and solved/prevented exactly ZERO crimes! It DID help the Liberal party get votes in Atlantic Canada...

    Oh, when it was announced? It was promised to cost `2 million dollars` not many Billions! And would be finished by "Christmas" not remain incomplete a decade later.

    Hundreds were arrested for typos on their paperwork... even typos made by the Gov`t!

    @5Cats - Case closed? You`re full of sh*t, show me some facts that say this hasn`t solved or prevented any gun related crime. You can`t just spit out a bunch of bullsh*t and expect me to believe it. Ever heard of "Ballistic Fingerprinting"? The bullets and shell casings fired all have marks on them unique to the weapon that fired them and can be traced back to that weapon. When you buy that gun it`s test fired and the bullet/shell casing is sent to the the state & ATF officials who put that info in the database. You think that doesn`t solve crimes? What are you, f*cking high? That solves lots of crimes. Since NYS signed into law that all new firearms ballistic fingerprint be cataloged it`s helped solve many new crimes as well as some 10-20 year old cold cases. They`re also considering microstamping in which every semi-automatic handgun firing pin and breach face has a unique code that becomes imprinted on a bullet casing each time the gun is fired.

    I`m tired of everyone being up in arms regarding the amount of ammo he bought. I own guns and I shoot competitions. To me 6000 rounds is a drop in the bucket. I buy 10000 rounds at a time and shoot close to 60000 a year. I know people that go through half a million or more in a year.
    Also why is anyone surprised that he was able to buy 4 guns legally. He passed his back ground check because he had no criminal record. Maybe the government should start keeping a closer eye on you so called law abiding citizens. It would make me feel better if the cops goose stepped around in jack boots. I know we`ll get Hugo Boss to design their uniforms.

    How does ballistic fingerprinting of new guns that had only been around for 10 years solve 10 to 20 year old cases. Also what good is microstamping when it can be defeated by removing the stamp with a file. And considering that the computer program failed to match bullets and casings 38% of the time it is no wonder that NYS has dropped CoBIS and is no longer pursuing microstamping. That`s right the ballistic fingerprinting program no longer exists in NYS.
