Sikh shooting

Well another tragedy has hit our country and gun rights will be at the forefront. It is a tragedy and my prayers go out to those victims and their families and friends.

I was at a seed conference all weekend close by there when this happened. I don't see things getting better.

Re: Sikh shooting

I also feel for the victims and the community involved. However, the Sikhs are taking it a bit too far. They are now blaming the US govt, our gun laws, and calling for more security for their religion. Pump your brakes boys, we feel bad for you, but foreigners telling us how to run our country does not sit well with us. Mourn your loss and move on, theres nothing that can be done to prevent nut jobs from losing their minds. It was a freak accident, nothing more.

Re: Sikh shooting

I did some research awhile back........and found that mass shootings are nothing new to this country. They go back many years and gun laws that have been enacted have had little effect on prevention. Unfortunately the government can legislate neither sanity nor morality....but they can use these events as a stepping stone to disarming the populous....not for safety or prevention, but rather for control....

Re: Sikh shooting

Yep, banning assault weapons would have made this not happen, oh wait he used a pistol better outlaw those as well. Then when someone kills someone else with a baseball bat, we better outlaw those too.

Pretty sure being Sikh is a religion and not a nationality. Other than that I agree with your view. Changing laws wont stop crazy people from doing crazy things.
