    Washington, D.C. – Alabama killer Michael McLendon fired more than 200 rounds from his military-style semiautomatic assault weapons. He lived in a state that has pathetically weak guns laws: In the Brady Campaign’s recent state scorecards, Alabama earned a score of 15 out of 100. Assault weapons were banned under federal law until four years ago.<br>
    <br>
    McLendon shot complete strangers, women, children, dogs and his own mother before taking his own life. He had an SKS assault rifle, a Bushmaster assault rifle and a 38 caliber handgun.<br>
    <br>
    Alabama has the fifth-highest gun death rate in America, including the third-highest rate of gun homicide.<br>
    <br>
    “This man needed the firepower of assault weapons to execute his plan of mass carnage. Alabama, and our nation, must take action to make it harder for dangerous people to get dangerous weapons,” said PaulHelmke, President of the Brady Campaign.<br>

    To The Brady Campaign: Would you be campaigning for the more control of/outlaw cars if this whacko would have run over that many poor souls? I doubt it. How many of these innocent people might have been saved by the intervention of a trained concealed carry holder? One life saved would have been worth it. Enforce the laws on the books NOW, not make up a bunch of laws to restrict good law abiding tax paying people. We need LESS government intervention in our lives not MORE!

    Any of the articles that I've read on this story say that his weapons were automatic. So which is it? Were they a legal semi-auto SKS, and AR, or had they been altered? Can an SKS be made full auto?

    Why don't we make killing people illegal? Let's call it homicide. If a person commits this awful act of homicide we can prosecute him, send him off to prison for life, or give him the death sentence. This kind of punishment will certainly stop people from committing such an awful act in the future. Sounds simple but could it work?

    Why doesn't the Brady campaign discuss how Germany's strict gun laws did not deter a teenager from killing 16 people on the same day with a semiautomatic Beretta 9mm. In case you were unaware, Germany's laws are almost as strict as those in New York City and certainly stricter than most states, including New Jersey, Illinois, and California.

    I would be willing to bet that the weapons referred to as "Automatic" were Semi Auto. "Automatic Weapons" has such a sinister ring to it, don't you know.
    These people are so out of touch with reality. J.W.

    Again, here's another crisis and these Einsteins will have an answer - perhaps the Assault Weapons Ban Law will be back in place with perhaps modifications making anyone in possession of an AR-15, AK-47 type rifles, large capacity magazine, .223 ammo, etc., criminals. It's coming and I recommend for those who are not NRA members to join and fight these asshol-s. It's certainly Obama's style to claim a crisis, push worthless and destructive legislation via the braintrusts in Congress, and punish those responsible citizens just like the mortgage bailout mess. I've belonged to the NRA for 45 years and will hope all shooters spend a little chump-change and join. BT-100dc

    The Brady Center has anxiously been awaiting this event. They needed the church shooting and this event to occur so they could get a boost to push their gun-ban wish-list on the Obama Administration. I'll bet that when these two shootings happened they jumped out of their chairs like fans cheering a touchdown for their side. The gun grabbers disgust me.
