Too early to know much this time. In general we need to take care of each other better and promote more sanity.

Starting by agreeing on intelligent gun control measures maybe?

Doing nothing, how's that working out?

Because California has such lax gun control laws?

And if California had an outright ban on all guns he probably would have had one also. I am not saying there isn't a problem, I just think it is impossible to legislate away.

The system had contact with this guy, but failed to take his guns, failed to commit him to treatment, failed to see him as a danger and even watch him a little. I want us to stop failing to stop these people..

The shooting was not in the German main news program "Tagesschau" ARD, 8 pm, which means that it is not worth to report these routine issues over here anymore.

Other countries have gun laws that work. We could too if the NRA did not control our law makers.
