(Yahoo)   The gunman who went on a shooting spree in Arkansas on Saturday that left 4 dead and 4 more wounded? Turns out, he'd been released from a mental hospital just a couple of days before the attack. So authorities are kinda curious how he got a gun   (news.yahoo.com ) divider line

That's my guess.  If you've got mental health issues, you may well believe that people, including your own family and the government, are out to get you.  So you may well put some things away in places known just to you just in case.

Which specific "new gun laws" in Georgia would have enabled Mr. Hernandez to obtain a firearm?

If years of playing FPS games on the computer have taught me anything, it's that guns, ammo and first aid kits are liberally scattered around the general landscape.

First-person shooters are not an accurate representation of reality.

The Grand Theft Auto games reveal that free firearms are located only in out-of-the way locations, such as alleys and airport runways.

I agree 132%. How many more people have to die before we take common-sense steps towards outlawing murder, or at least instituting universal background checks on would-be murderers?

Because the NRA says the real solution is to focus more on preventing crazies from getting guns, and then undermines every single bill that would make it harder for crazies to get guns.

You know, the next time you wonder why people aren't willing to compromise on things like gun control, if you step back, take a deep breath, and take a look at what you and others like you say about the very people whom you wish would compromise on the issue.

Your attitude is precisely the thing preventing that which you wish to accomplish.  Why should they engage in a discussion about the actual relative merits of whatever proposal happens to be on the table when you call them mentally ill?

And this is why typical gun owners are opposed to mental health screenings, society knows they're mental.

Was he committed involuntarily or adjudicated mentally defective?

If not, he probably should have been. I still wouldn't want to see anyone start losing their rights based on a voluntary visit to a hospital though.

Other than crossing a few states to get to Georgia when Arkansas has similar gun laws and the fact that Georgia's laws don't go into effect for another 2ish months?
 
2014-05-05 01:55:20 PM  
"Sir, have you ever been involuntarily committed to a mental institution?"
"Millennium hand and shrimp!"
"OK, here's your gun."
 
2014-05-05 01:55:40 PM  
This tragedy would not have happened if they allowed all the patients at the mental hospital to carry guns!
 
2014-05-05 01:55:56 PM  
while i am generally for intelligent gun control, one thing is true and always will be, if you want a gun and breaking the law is not an issue for you, you can get one, one way or another.

See, this is why we can't ever come to any sort of agreement on major issues! Everybody is convinced that the other side has nothing productive to add to the conversation.

What percentage of Arkansas residents are gun owners? I'd guess that stealing one from a friend, family member or neighbor would be more likely than that.

A .357 Magnum? Obviously an assault revolver. Probably had one of those 30-magazine extended clips on it, too. And who needs a Magnum? I would think you could get by just fine on a plain ol' .357. Or maybe even a .358, but not a Magnum.

The Magnum P.I. is a very dangerous gun. You could break the skin with it and get a serious infection.

Reasonable assumption.

Alternate, swiped from one of the now deceased family members prior to the incident.

For starters, it might prove that you're not mentally ill. Talking to your political adversaries is the only way to find common ground on which to build a compromise.
