CALIFORNIA KILLER PROVED THAT HIGHLAND PARK ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN IS USELESS.

Highland Park Passed an AWB to keep the residents safe! Yet the killer at USBC used a knife to kill half of the murder victims and then handguns with ten round magazines and his BMW to attack others. Hmmm, are we going to register all knife owners now, and BMW owners? Oh NO, it is that damn NRA and those "ASSAULT WEAPONs WITH HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINES". Hmmm, BMW, Knife and pistol with ten round magazines... So, the Madman killed three with a knife,,, where are the calls for "KNIFE CONTROL" or BMW CONTROL".  The guns he used were handguns with ten round magazines and yet people scream for gun control. "We must do something, Congress must take action". I say yes, we must have Mental Health Reform, we must take a common sense approach to resolving this violence by mentally ill people. The Police ignored the information given to them about the threatening videos made by the killer. This mass killing could have been prevented. We must shift our focus off of trying to rewrite the Constitution and put it squarely where it belongs... MENTAL HEALTH REFORM!

The knife tactic must have worked pretty well for this Madman, three young men dead and very quietly. How many people are killed with Knives every year and no a single person calls for some kind of restrictions or registrations... even for Samurai Swords and Broad Swords, Mace Ball on Chain, Spears, Meat Cleavers, Hatchets, Axes, Sledge Hammers, Pick Axes, Pitch Forks, Bow and Arrows, CrossBows, and on and on. Sure worked for O.J. Simpson!

Mayor Nancy Rotering and her band of misfit City Councilmen have missed the point again. Crazy people kill other people with knives, cars and non-assault weapon type guns every single day.

If you have a knife and you're 7 feet tall you might have a 5 foot reach.... Have you ever heard of a drive by knifing? The knife v gun argument reminds me of the joke where the punch line is "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you..." To those that think that Mr. Cox has shot his Constitutional wad, we should each take a turn replying to his postings. One person on Monday, another on Tuesday etc. therefore those who disagree with him keep him busy 7 seven days a week, while we only have to respond on one day. By the way there were a lot more lawyers signing the Decl of Ind and the Constitution than there were plumbers. And if it weren't for lawyers arguing in the Sup Ct for expansion of the 2nd Amend the recent gun rights cases would not have been heard.
