Shooting at Umpqua College, Oregon – Donald Trump recommends guns in classrooms

On October 1st, 2015, in Roseburg, Oregon, a 26-year-old gunman, Christopher Harper-Mercer, opened fire in a Umpqua Community College English class, killing nine, before killing himself. The father of the gunman called on the nation Saturday to change its gun laws, saying the massacre “would not have happened” if his son had not been able to buy more than a dozen handguns and rifles. Donald Trump told supporters in Franklin, Tennessee Saturday that more guns, not fewer, might have prevented the tragedy: “It was a gun-free zone…. I’ll tell you, if you had a couple of the teachers or someone with guns in that room, you would have been a hell of a lot better off…” In this video, Walter offers his perspective on the Umpqua Shooting, Gun Control, Freedoms vs. Security, and he also discusses ways we can limit events like this from occurring in the future.

Break free from slavery!

    Common to all these shootings has been Prozac and/or other cocktails of
    anti-psychotic drugs.
    Failing to re-enforce this factor, is failing to fully tackle this issue.

    At least one nearby survivor was armed, but declined to engage the gunmen
    for fear of being killed by responding officers.
    The father of the mass-murderer should ask himself how was the government
    going to be more proactively involved with the shooter’s gun purchases when
    he didn’t even know anything about his own son being so heavily weaponized.
    Relying on sensible gun safety laws isn’t enough, but it’s a start. The
    parents don’t know the son has an interest in guns, has a first gun, has a
    new gun, has many different models and calibers, a veritable arsenal.
    Society has lost control of it’s self-regulatory impulse as we become more
    disconnected and atomized, isolated from even our own family. With
    tragically predictable results.
    I believe in responsible gun ownership as an important constitutional
    protection of individual sovereignity, but should the 2nd Amendment be an
    excuse to allow the nation to be awash in saturday night specials. Handguns
    are for fearful punks and cowardly assassins, machine guns for the
    police-terrorism combine that suppresses the citizenry, but a well-oiled
    squirrel gun will ensure a decent supper and a cast ballot every time. But
    its not much of a weapon for going postal, which is where this fractured
    society seems headed. 994 multiple fatality shooting incidents in the last
    1004 days is the Guardian figure. Scary, but typical of a country
    perpetually at war, home and abroad. The harvest of a genocidal history
