Mass Murder

The recent massacre in Orlando is the latest addition to the long list of similar occurrences. The killers motive(s) are shrouded in the media hype but at this time it does appear that this person had some recognized severe mental problems and should not have been able to purchase automatic or semi-automatic weapons. I know that regulating the ownership of fire arms will not stop this type of crime entirely anymore than regulating the ownership of automobiles stops DWI fatalities. However, regulation will REDUCE the frequency and severity.
