    Can the government constitutionally outlaw the types of rifles used by the El Paso and Dayton killers? In a word: No. We know that because in the first Supreme Court opinion upholding the individual right to keep and bear arms, the court addressed what kind of arms the Second Amendment protects. The court ruled that the Second Amendment protects individual ownership of weapons one can carry that are of the same degree of sophistication as the bad guys have — or the government has.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

      The government? Yes, the government. That’s so because the Second Amendment was not written to protect the right to shoot deer. It was written to protect the right to shoot at tyrants and their agents when they have stolen liberty or property from the people. If you don’t believe me on this, then read the Declaration of Independence. It justifies violence against the British government because of such thefts.

      Governments are the greatest mass killers on the planet. Who can take without alarm any of their threats to emasculate our right to defend our personal liberties?

        In theory, all of this was known by President Donald Trump when he addressed the nation last Monday and attributed the weekend slaughters to mental illness, the freedom to express hateful ideas on the internet and violent video games. He should have consulted his lawyers before he spoke.

          Federal law prohibits records of mental deficiencies, unless they result in involuntary institutionalization, from entering the government’s databases that are consulted in background checks. And the Supreme Court has already ruled that the government cannot censor, ban or punish opinions expressed on the internet or games played there.

            Then he condemned hate. Do you believe his condemnations? He has, after all, praised the white supremacists at Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 as “good people,” even though one of them pleaded guilty to the first-degree murder of a young black woman, and even though, as a candidate and later as president, he argued that the southwest United States was being “invaded” and “infested” by Hispanics.

              That white supremacy ideology — “let’s repel the Hispanic invaders because the feds won’t do so” — resonates in the El Paso killer’s manifesto, which he published about 20 minutes before he began killing. That ideology is far more widespread than most Americans realize. The FBI recently demonstrated as much. This form of hatred of people because of their immutable characteristics breeds violence.

                We know that some among us love to hate. That is their right, but they have no right to act violently beyond their perverse thoughts. And all people have the right to repel such violence by using guns to do so.

                  The president also offered his support for “red flag” laws. These horrific statutes permit police or courts to seize guns from those deemed dangerous. Red flag laws are unconstitutional. The presumption of innocence and the due process requirement of demonstrable fault as a precondition to any punishment or sanction together prohibit the loss of liberty on the basis of what might happen in the future.

                    In America, we do not punish a person or deprive anyone of liberty on the basis of a fear of what the person might do. When the Soviets used psychiatric testimony to predict criminal behavior, President Ronald Reagan condemned it. Now, the president wants it here.

                      The United States is not New Zealand, where a national legislature, animated by fear and provoked by tragedy, can impair fundamental liberties by majority vote. In America, neither Congress nor the states can outlaw whatever handguns or rifles they want to outlaw or infringe upon the right to own them.

                        The government can no more interfere with Second Amendment rights than it can infringe upon any other rights. If this were not so, then no liberty — speech, press, religion, association, self-defense, privacy, travel, property ownership — would be safe from the reach of a fearful majority.

                        That’s why we have a Constitution.

                          Napolitano's right.

                            Didn't the shooter indicate in his manifesto that he didn't even like Trump?

                              That's the problem; if we could target people likely to take racist rhetoric and act on it, there might be some sense in "red flag" laws. But psychiatrists will tell you that it's impossible to do that with even a fair degree of accuracy.

                              How do you tell a shooter, like the El Paso racist, from the guys who yell "shoot them" at Trump rallies? The answer is, "you can't."

                              More concerning is the idea that if we shut down social media featuring people like that, it can help. It won't. Suppressing speech won't stop them. The problem is that a few demagogues like David Duke, Donald Trump, and Richard Spencer have convinced millions of people that hatred is self-preservation.

                              Some of them carry that to the logical conclusion. Suppressing every white nationalist won't work. The FBI should be putting more resources into finding the relatively few who are actively preparing for terrorist acts. The president should stop pandering to them, and when they act out at his rallies, should stop the event and call them out for it.

                              In America, we do not punish a person or deprive anyone of liberty on the basis of a fear of what the person might do. When the Soviets used psychiatric testimony to predict criminal behavior, President Ronald Reagan condemned it. Now, the president wants it here.
                              The Soviets had no illusions about predicting criminal behavior. It was merely an excuse to suppress dissent. And that's exactly how it will work here if we allow it to happen.

                                You have bought in to the lie that says we can determine what the political affiliation was of a murderer by the evidence he leaves behind.

                                What is left out of all of these discussions is that these people don't pack a lunch. They prepare only for immediate violence with no plan for escape. They have reached the point where they know they are going to their death; there is no life after the event - only the moment matters. They have reached the point where they embrace their own death, often at their own hands.

                                All suicide victims are mentally unstable; but there are two groups. Notice that suicide victims with a moral compass take steps not to involve others. Notice that suicide victims without a moral compass involve as many others as possible.

                                Mass murderers grow to hate themselves and their own lives and will seize on any excuse to justify their actions to relieve them of their inner suffering. Religion, politics, racism, domestic problems, it doesn't matter. As long as they can convince themselves the blame is not their own, then they can convince themselves their suicide has a purpose.

                                Unless we recognize the similarities between these two types of suicide, no progress will be made in stemming the tide. Liberal ideology is actively scrubbing from society all remnants of Judeo-Christian ethics. The increase in instances of mass murder is directly proportional to the growing absence of objective morality.

                                C'mon Dems, help us put the Bible back in schools if you really care.
                                Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.

                                It is true that Trump does not fit modern Republican principles, but that is because modern Republican principles have strayed far from conservatism. genuineoriginal
