The likelihood of anything similar happening again is almost 0%. If you wanted a gun before it happened, get a gun. If the only reasoning you have now to get a firearm is this particular shooting, think about it a bit more.


Just doesn't make sense to me to only buy a gun now after this happened.

I'm just curious where you got that statistic from, I mean, 0% right? Oh yeah, you pulled it out of your ***. Considering you can predict human behavior and all.

Could be that people are crazy and you need to protect yourself...

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/...-rises-gunfire


Have you guys heard of "knockout kings" game, where thugglets go around blasting unsuspecting people in the face with the goal of knocking them out with one punch?

All when you don't expect it?

This is being done all over the country and from what I have read it originated in Chicago... You know the "non gun" zone, where you can't protect yourself from thugs.

Many people have been killed from this activity, but the media doesn't think it is worthy of national news coverage.

I think it's stupid that it takes a shooting for people to wake up and realize that is when they finally need or want protection. Just my 2 cents.

Could be. But who knows what President Obama will do. He certainly didn't close Guantanamo Bay while the Democrats controlled Congress though, with the Republicans having no legal means of stopping him, (even you admit that the Democrats dropped the ball there) so it's hard to predict what Obama will and will not actually do.

He likely will not try to pass any gun laws before the election. He is vulnerable right now. Gun makers have to love the increase in sales.

Now you have a big, heavy, useless magazine for your rifle and are out $100. Good work.

Could also be a lot of people that have been putting it off finally deciding to do it in worry that they may not be able to later down the road.

well if they pass a law requiring a form 1 for the damn thing then it was worth it because mine is now grandfathered in and i don't have to pay for a 200 dollar stamp

it's like an investment

yep...pre-ban mags in states with laws have doubled in value....that's better than the stock market these days

if you don't think it's an investment you're an idiot. Guns, ammo, and magazines never lose value when more anti-gun laws are passed

He is talking about the fact that you went for a big finicky unreliable drum vs something like a 30 rounder.
