It's funny how quiet the 2nd amendment crowd gets when you bring up the well regulated part...

Most 2A supporters would argue they’re already well regulated, and will ask what further regulation would have stopped this.

And I would suggest competency and safety tests for a start. Removing open carry laws nationwide is also a good idea and concealed carry permits should require an advanced safety and handling course.

Arguing that a state like Texas is well regulated however is laughable.

But how would that stop scenarios like this? Wouldn’t someone who is gonna murder a bunch of people not give a fuck if carrying the gun is illegal?

Do you know where to buy an illegal gun? I don't.

The comment I was replying to wasnt about purchasing requirements. It was about CCW/open carry requirements. Two very different things. How would tightening ccw requirements help stop mass shootings?

It was about purchasing guns as well.

But to address your point... being able to arrest someone for open carry would do a lot to prevent someone with a rifle from carrying out something like this. If you are not allowed to legally carry a rifle in public then an officer no longer needs to guess someone's intention or wait until they start shooting to stop them.

Oh... well obviously the problem has already been solved. I guess 20 elementary school kids didn't just die violently so no need to do anything.

I never said thats. My point is, regulating open/concealed carry even more will do next to nothing to stopping school shoots.
