    Awful... my thoughts to those who have lost loved ones and I wish a speedy recovery to the injured.

    Sad shocking news,no easy answers to this.The right to bear arms is part of the American way and is unlikely to change.I think that an outreach telephone number should be set up for disturbed homicidal individuals ,similar to the Samaritans.I think this would work in some cases anyway and is worth a try.A sort of DONT DO IT line.

    Lunatics don't see themselves as lunatics.
    He had survalence cameras in place to alert him of when authorities were coming so he could kill himself.
    No stopping this.

    Lunatic? A very well planned, premeditated "lunacy!" Obviously, since the man is White. . . it will be determined that it is "mental illness!"

    Every gun lobbyist, every NRA member once again is splashed with the blood that was spilled last night.

    Only in the US would any one person be allowed this much fire power without being an active military currently engaged in a military conflict.

    SICK!

    The right to bear arms SHOULD be changed to limit te type of arms and the amount of ammunitions. The right to bear arms NEVER intended to include every new evil technological advance in killing machines!

    What is next, "the right to bear a nuclear head drone?" You KNOW that this type of technology is coming. . . are you willing to see it in everyone's hands?

    I am NOT!

    We'll never know if people had an outreach line there's a strong chance that they can be calmed down,it's always worth a try.Do you have any brilliant ideas?

    There are "hotlines" all over the country. One can call 911, and get help. The guy was a multimillionaire, had no known problems according to the family. You have easy access to guns, and the money to buy them, and shit happens. Things are going to get worse as the country continues it slide into the amoral society as shown by the last election. Get ready for it.

    Change the constitution if you don't like it. It's a simple process.

    Would be easier just follow the Constitution, however, no one, right or left, wants to do that.
