Busy playing partisan politics...
There are also reports that this kid allegedly was sympathizer with middle east resistance groups. There were plenty of red flags. If he got his gun legally, the FBI knew about it or should have.

But too often this happens and the "gun weirdos" throw up there hands like "well that's just the way it is!" Even the thought of addressing the issue sparks outrage. It's unreal.
Probably because it is way too easy to poke holes (with actual data and logic) in most arguments for gun control. If you look at the majority of where gun crime comes stems from, I think we could make try a couple solutions that would drop the statistics significantly.
Also, how about we actually enforce the laws we already have in place, before we throw out more laws that will not work? All of these red flags and the FBI acknowledged this kid as a threat.
The FBI needs to get hammered for this. Same shit with the terrorists who were also "flagged"
At this point what does flagging them even mean? Honest question, because I have no idea.
