Why there is inaction on gun laws — Goldberg

"And we would say 'wait, that's not funny, '" Edwards said. He should learn from the countries he visits; in Japan, a nation of 127 million people, there are less than 10 gun deaths in a typical year, primarily due to strict gun control. We don't have to be trained counselors or law enforcement officers to share a smile, demonstrate some small kindness, or, in appropriate situations, give a hug.

Kelley's name was confirmed by unidentified officials speaking to the Associated Press, CNN and the Washington Post.

Edwards said that "everything that could be done was done" for Kelley. For gun-control advocates, it shows once more that it's too easy to get a weapon in the U.S. The United States, not the Air Force, would be named in any lawsuit as the defendant. Edwards said those domestic problems boiled over on the job and he would come in depressed and unfocused. Three weapons were recovered at the scene of the shooting - a Ruger AR-556 rifle found at the church, and two handguns, a Glock 9mm and a Ruger 22, found in his car, according to Fred Milanowski, special agent in charge of the ATF Houston.

"If the problem we want to address is the prevalence of assault rifles in the civilian population this is a very roundabout way to do that".

Proving such a direct link wouldn't be easy, said Tony Romanucci, a leading personal injury attorney based in Chicago.

The Post reports that Kelley lived in a county near the site of his rampage.

If Kelley's past offences had been properly shared, they would have prevented him from buying a gun, the air force acknowledged on Monday.

"We see this pattern over and over again", Soraya Chemaly, director of the Women's Media Center Speech Project, said on "Democracy Now!". Instead, the Air Force simply failed to meet a legal requirement.

Ruth Glenn, executive director for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The obsession was so pronounced, Edwards said, that when Kelley was disciplined for poor performance she told her bosses to "back off or he would shoot the place up".

Federal employees cannot be sued individually. Still, often the perpetrators of these senseless acts give no clue-even to closest family members-of their fragile and volatile states of mind.

The liberal approach is ineffective. But a 1946 law, the Federal Tort Claims Act, abolished federal government immunity for suits by private citizens who were harmed by a federal employee's wrongful or negligent act.

Envisioning a world without mass murder - which means a world without war, waged either collectively or privately (with both types of war generating handsome profits for the weapons industry) - means envisioning a world where guns are not a precondition for empowerment and us vs. them isn't society's default setting. The company said the FBI had not requested its assistance.

A US Air Force spokeswoman told CNN Kelley was punished under these provisions and received a "bad conduct discharge". Yet he was able to do so. They do not check first to see if what they are planning is legal.

In an initial statement following the shooting, Villalba said it was time to find common-sense solutions to gun violence, "while also protecting our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms".
