i think one thing many ppl are forgetting was that he walked into the holocaust museum that represented 6 million jews who died at the hands of the nazis. he was a holocaust denier and i think it is something like this that should remind ppl why the holocaust should be remembered and why allowing hate as strong as this to be refrained.

i feel like one thing many ppl are forgetting was that he walked into the holocaust muesum, making it clear had the intent to kill in a place that represents 6 million jews who died at the hands of nazis. he was a holocaust denier and i think this is just another reason why ppl need to remember what the holocaust stands for and that allowing hate like that to exist should be watched.

No, we have enough gun laws in this country. Plus, I don't think this scum actually cared a bit about any gun laws he would break. This whole thing went the way it should have. Bad guy comes in with gun. Good guys shoot and neutralize the threat from the bad guy. Case closed. Tragically, the bad guy was a little quicker than the good guy this time.

mamasitamali- then we're on the same side, but the amount of untraceable guns we have in this country leads to more shooting deaths then other developed countries. they're being imported and manufactured somewhere. so again, we need to have more control over the guns in this country.

walking into a licensed gun store has lots of red tape. a gun show? less red tape. buying a gun from a private citizen? zero. I'm all for gun control, but let's also note that anyone can walk into a car showroom with cash and buy a car with no background check, even if that person walked directly to the dealership from jail where they were held for vehicular manslaughter or DUI-related activities. we cannot be blaming gun owners or gun vendors for a psychopath's homicidal actions.

spacekatgal- i also conceed that you have a point about sarah palin. she puts herself out there to be ridiculed with the absurd, ignorant, and extreme things she says, but i do have to conceed that i don't like sexist language being used against women, even someone like her who plays into systematic sexism by using her looks without much intellect to get ahead.

Sloane, does anyone know whether he got the gun legally? (He was a felon, so now that I think of it, there's no way he could have) I don't think that someone who obtains a gun without following the law is the best argument for restricting gun rights - the people who break the law are going to break the law regardless of what the law is, I'm afraid.

@spacekatgal-no i didn't but i'm not suprised. the racist idiotic emails they're getting reflect the bigoted anchors they have on that station along with the hateful way they report the news. they news station and it's viewers feed off each other with words, but when somebody decides to escalate it to violence like the man who shot the abortion doctor or the man who shot up a church that embraced gays, they act shocked. it's disgusting.

Palin can just STFU about the media. Umm, what? So you think it's completely acceptable to call someone slutty on a national show? I disagree with the woman's politics completely, spacekatgal, but how can you support such sexist language being used against a woman, particularly given that the language would never be used against a man in that way?

and although i hate sarah palin and think she and her daughter bristol are a couple of duplicitous hypocrites, letterman needed to apologize for his inappropriate and sexist comments. he should really think before he says things.

the fact that an 88 year old racist felon managed to get a gun and decided to engage in domestic terrorism by shooting up a musuem dedicated to the genocide of 11 million people is pure evil. he needs to die in prison. we need to have better gun control laws in this country. i believe america has one of the highest accidental shooting death rates of developed countries thanks to it's lax gun laws.
