There was a ban on assault style rifles in Boulder . . . but a judge recently barred the city from enforcing it. Thus prompting the NRA to post "NRA Victory in Colorado" on it's Twitter feed . . . yeah, winning . . .

Quote:
ARVADA, Colorado—Authorities on Tuesday identified the suspect in the shooting deaths of 10 people at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a 21-year-old with a history of violence whose brother said he was deeply disturbed.

[...]

Ali Aliwi Alissa, the suspect’s 34-year-old brother, told The Daily Beast that authorities searched his house all night after the shooting.

Alissa said his brother was “very anti-social” and paranoid, adding that, in high school, he would describe “being chased, someone is behind him, someone is looking for him.”

“When he was having lunch with my sister in a restaurant, he said, ‘People are in the parking lot, they are looking for me.’ She went out, and there was no one. We didn’t know what was going on in his head,” Alissa said, admitting that he believes his brother is mentally ill.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/boulder-colorado-cops-identify-king-soopers-supermarket-massacre-suspect-as-ahmad-alissa



This mentally disturbed kid, with a history of violence (read the article) was able to pass a NICS background check.

The Boulder assault weapon ban had nothing to do with this. If it was in place this still would have happened. The kid was from Arvada, which is a city south of Boulder.

Colorado also has red flag laws. Why wasn't he red flagged?

There were so many failures here on every level.

Our US Air Force used to use AR-15s. Same goes for Secret Service, federal and state law enforcement too.

And now if you're in the right county, at the right gun fair, and have enough $. You can get 1 too!!!
Will they check your history? Doubtful.
Is it better for hunting than other options? Not really.
Is it better and faster at killing numerous people you may run in to? You betcha.

All weapons of war should be banned except for that use. I understand the want to fire guns like AR-15's and like for sport, curiosity, and such. I don't see the need to own one.

I also don't see the need for open carry. This ain't the Wild Wild West. We have horseless carriages and paved streets. In some instances freedom is dangerous.

The pictures of those killed are really heartbreaking as always.

Especially the young people in their 20's, just sad, senseless, wrong and in my opinion preventable.

Change is needed and has been for awhile.

One of the victims was a retired lady who took up working as an InstaCart shopper to help the elderly...(bleep)

Another one was the son of Serbian refugees.

I was going to make a snarky comment with that line but I had a mental block on the wording. Unreal these guys. Every. Time.

Just remember. Guns Don't kill people. Antifa, snowflake, cancel culurist, cuckold, freedom killing, masked, pandemic alarmist, voter invigorating, leftists with their lethal tree hugging and inclusiveness equality, fairness, and UBER rights , desire to use a toilets, and unhinged thinking that all air is meant for human breathing, and happiness can be carved out for anyone who's natural puke response isn't "Daddy " T" is a Gawd synonym", are the real threat to mankind.

Gun rights activists have won this battle. I've given up.
What can top Sandyhook??
What can top the Vegas shooter injuring 400+ people in 10 minutes?

If it's too soon to talk about what to do to prevent Monday's shooting, what about the one 6 days before that one?

I thought with the NRA's recent trouble those in office getting money from them would turn the corner and vote for an assault rifles ban. The number of people wanting the ban outnumbers those that don't.
