Very sad for the victims, very. I hope when they catch the murderer, they don't let him out on bond, like they have been doing all over our country. Or like the New Orleans Mayor, that visits these thugs in jail, but totally ignores the victims and their families.
Had it been required to have a permit, that murderer wouldn't have gotten one. That's a no brainer. Criminals don't care about laws. You can take every single gun away from every single law abiding citizen, and crime would escalate. Criminals would not give up their guns, but they would have free range if law abiding citizens were unable to defend themselves. Nothing to stop the criminals.

If Twitter didn't censor him, then more then likely it isn't true. And Manufacturers don't dump their products anywhere. They sell them. Just like drugs. Pharmaceutical companies don't dump their drugs onto the street, but criminals get them all the time, as we all know.
Did you run the video?
When there're 10+ million weapons brought on the market in a year, way beyond any logical demand, it's dumping, exactly like the opiates the drug companies were putting out. Where do they think their products will end up? It's all about money for those companies without regard to the social cost.
