    senseless violence

    May the good lord bless and keep those harmed in this last act of stupidity.
    Those who beat their swords into plow shares normally end up plowing for those who didnt.

    How do we license or change the laws to prevent what happened here in my beloved Texas?

    I carry a gun because I am licensed to do so. Because I also carry a badge I am always on duty and required by law to always carry. As I hold a class 3 permit I can carry a silenced machine gun, not that I would, but I do own one.

    Can we make common sense gun laws to prevent what happened in Vegas or here in Texas? To just ban guns only puts guns in the hands of people who flaunt the law. Is there an option?

    I'm not an expert on this topic and I know that collectors can be passionate about what they collect. But this event absolutely could not have happened in the way it did (fewer people would have been shot) if the weapon hadn't been what it was. Common sense legislation would allow common sense self defense but not the accumulation of weapons of war, in my opinion. I don't want to get in an argument about this, but that's my opinion.

    I am really sorry that this happened close to home for you and others here.

    It sounds like a very small town.

    Apparently its near La Vernia. La Vernia is a very small town -- around 1,000. We would probably call Sutherland Springs "down around La Vernia"

    Yeah, I think SS has 300 people, so probably almost more like a neighborhood.

    I agree the guy did a good thing.

    I also know there are a lot of hunters in rural Texas that own rifles and I understand and support that.

    The thing that puzzles me, though is why people who live in towns in the sticks with 300 people think they need guns to protect themselves from violent criminals but when I lived in an apartment building in a big city where I could watch my heavily tattooed neighbors hide small packages in the air filters of their cars every trip they took and I never thought I needed to own a gun.

    Mental health problems are more severe in rural Texas.
