Re: “The Gun: How I Bought an AR-15 in a Five Guys Parking Lot

There are plenty of people that discuss taking more action than just background checks...which I personally don't have a problem with.
My point is banning something never leads to a more desirable outcome. Where there is a will there is a way. Anything that is illegal is obtainable on the black market or through knowing the right people.
The shooter in Orlando had bought the firearms legally and had even been under FBI scrutiny.
Clearly the regulation played no part in stopping his psychotic actions. There is really no way to stop someone who has these types of desires.
Spare me your assumptions of someone like myself being full of "macho nonsense".
People like you need to view the bigger picture and stop taking a article like this and running with it.

Lone wolf terrorist's, as well as terrorist groups such as ISIS, will always find ways to carry out their agendas. We didn't consider banning pressure cookers after the Boston marathon bombings. Likewise we would never consider eliminating domestic air travel to avoid events like 911.
In a nation where we are free to experience anything we like...cook a meal in a pressure cooker or take a flight to some place we have dreamt of seeing, we should be free to own a firearm as stated in the 2nd ammendment.
To place the blame of terrorism events on the tool used is taking our eye off the proverbial ball. Radicalized individuals and mental illness are the true culprits, and as such should be the focus of our energy.
