I am, in general, freaked out by guns. I can't even stand to hold them when I know for certain that they're not loaded. My friend Ann has two; they terrify me. I know skillions of people like them and know how to use them, so my dream of making them completely and totally illegal will never come to pass. But why, oh, WHY can't we go back to the assault-weapons ban??! Why is that so controversial? What civilian needs an assault weapon, and why? Ugh.

Also, why is it that people with the kind of instability the shooter had are allowed to legally own ANY gun? Seems to me if a guy is discharged from the army (probably for psych reasons, although the Army isn't saying) and then was asked to get an eval by his school before coming back wouldn't be allowed to own a gun of any sort, concealed or unconcealed. I bet there are card-carrying members of the NRA who would agree with not giving crazy people guns (or domestic violence perps, either, but that's another discussion). MAJOR FAIL, Arizona.

FYI

He was not discharged from the Army. He tried to get in, but was rejected (for as yet unrevealed reasons).

Re: FYI

Yeah, that's what I meant to say, my bad. He still shouldn't legally own a gun.
