Odessa shooter had a hand grenade in his car.

No. He didn't. I made that up.

Before you get pissed off at me think about this for a second. What difference is there? He could have killed that many and hurt that many but it would have to be a very different scenario. Live hand grenades are really hard to get, for a reason. I've thrown two live ones and it's an incredible amount of killing power in one handful (Army basic training).

This guy was driving around with a human meat grinder in his car. Loaded or easily quickly loaded.
If he had a hand grenade in his car people would say "OH THATS TO MUCH". A matter of degree is a fallacy. No one should be driving around with either.

1. All guns other than single shot , shot guns and maybe very specific hunting MUST GO

obviously.

OBVIOUSLY

But this place is so fucking brainwashed and often STUPID that people will be SHOCKED by that common sense statement, we have allowed too many people have too many guns for too long.

We dont stand for an incorporated city having huge holes in their sidewalks because the harm to the public would be too great, for example. I could list many things we dont tolerate because of the harm it does, guns should be at the top of the list.

8. Not reasonable

Single shot? What if you miss? Are you just dead then?

10. Dead? Deer are shooting back now? I know you dont hunt deer with a shotgun but

cut your losses, there is no rational argument to keep guns, none.

13. You do hunt deer with a shotgun

It's in fact the law in many areas, no rifles allowed. That's what shotgun slugs are for.

12. This, single shot is too far

Self defense is a legitimate reason to own a gun, especially in places where police response times are 30-60 minutes.

That being said, magazine restrictions wouldn't interfere with self defense - especially for rifles (which aren't as suited for self defense anyway)

6. I suspect he was, from the first, on his way to commit mass murder, and that's why

he didn't stop and cooperate with a minor (turn signal) traffic stop.

Since the original killing plan was interrupted, he continued to head toward his intended target, but knowing he might not get to massacre the people in the theater, he shot as many as he could along the way.

14. I suspect he was actually pulled over because his workplace notified the authorities.

but I have no evidence for that suspicion

7. Yeah I was amazed by the power

I hucked mine to the end of the range back when I had a cannon for an arm. After that we went up to the observation area - at least 30 feet above the range and the grenades were going off let's say 50 yards away - 8-10 going off at the same time. Shrapnel landed on the tin roof above us.

Thanks. Cav Scout here.
