Why did the shooter stop? Who stopped them, or did they only "go" to shoot one person? Info?

Gang related, I would guess. Now all shotguns will make the ban list.

Guy007...your comment is the most baseless claim I have ever read. According to the annual FBI statistics, in 2011, 17-hundred people were killed with a knife, 728 were killed by another person’s bare hands, and 500 people were killed by hammers, bats, and clubs..rifles killed 323 people. If banning guns is based on the number of actual murders, should we not consider banning knives, bats, and bare hands as well?

Some of the most strict gun laws are in DC, Chicago, Baltimore...what's the murder rate there? Laws only effect the behavior of moral people...mentally unstable and criminals do not follow the law, and by the way..it is already illegal for criminals and insane people to get guns...the only way to make the gun theory work is to make every single gun illegal and you would be arrested on spot for having one...good luck with that.

LOOK OUT, SQUIRREL HUNTERS! There's still time for Biden to add those "assault" shotguns to THE LIST.

Merriam-Webster defines "assault" as; (a): a threat or attempt to inflict offensive physical contact or bodily harm on a person.

By THAT definition, what firearm would they single out as NOT being a "assault weapon" if they, in reality, wanted to take them all?

Guy007 - There have been those that WOULD HAVE agreed with your stated opinion of "Do the right thing and outlaw excessive,immoralley useful,and unneccesary owning ammunition!!!"

Fortunately, we hung a bunch of them following their trials in Nuremberg, Germany.

Those who are gun ho advocates of excessive ownership of weaponry are in addition to being fear mongers of their immediate surroundings,are also guilty of their baseless attempts to offer any rational explanation of the real necessity of the why of owning excessive amounts of the deadly weapons.
