If our rights as US citizens are even remotely inhibited because of this one guy killing 12 people with firearms, all of those military folks who have given (or taken) their lives will have had their sacrifices forever tarnished. For shame that we as a country can kowtow to fear based reaction and voluntarily strip ourselves of our freedoms as declared by the Constitution.
Yes, people go to war and die so that all the Billy Bob rednecks back home can have guns. Because that's freedom right there!!

Nevermind that many people who love each other can't marry each other, or the garbage minimum wage in many states or the millions that can't afford decent healthcare. Those things weren't mandated in a document written in freaking 1776. As we can obviously see, nothing has changed since then. Those Brits are still a menace and you should be well armed against them. Children are still dying of polio and the black slaves are lazy as ever. Oh, when will progress come.

If anything take away guns and it'll be harder for these people to commit suicide.
