You’ll Never Guess Where Mass Shooters Get Their Weapons


Sometimes a story surprises you in ways that you don’t expect. I knew that gun control didn’t work. The truth of that is everywhere that you look, and it doesn’t take a genius to come to that conclusion. But I was under the belief that most mass shooters get their firearms illegally, in the same way that street criminals get them (stealing, etc.).

I may have been wrong.

A recent story about a serial killer in Tampa, Florida, gives an eye-opening list of mass shooters and details about where they obtained their firearms. AWK Hawkins writes,


The report that [Tampa serial killer] Donaldson confessed to buying his gun legally means his name will be added to an already long list of names of firearm-based attackers who purchased their weapons via full compliance with the left’s go-to gun control – background checks. That list of gun control compliant killers includes:

the Las Vegas attacker (October 1, 2017)

the Congressional baseball practice attacker (June 14, 2017)

the Orlando attacker (June 12, 2016)

the UCLA attacker (June 1, 2016)

the San Bernardino attackers (December 2, 2015)

the Colorado Springs attacker (October 31, 2015)

the Umpqua Community College attacker (October 1, 2015)

Alison Parker’s attacker (August 26, 2015)

the Lafayette movie theater attacker (July 23, 2015)

the Chattanooga attacker (July 16, 2015)

the alleged Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal attacker (Jun 17, 2015)

the Muhammad Cartoon Contest attackers (May 3, 2014)

the Las Vegas cop killers (June 9, 2015)

the Santa Barbara attacker (May 23, 2014)

the Fort Hood attacker (April 2, 2014)

the Arapahoe High School attacker (December 13, 2013)

the D.C. Navy Yard attacker (September 16, 2013)

the Aurora movie theater attacker (July 20, 2012)

Gabby Giffords’ attacker (January 8, 2011)

the Fort Hood attacker (November 5, 2009)

the Virginia Tech attacker (April 16, 2007), and many others.

Look at that list. Every one of them purchased their firearms legally which means that they had to pass background checks to get their firearms. Do anti-gunners really believe that tweaking the system is going to prevent this massive failure in the future? Maybe they do, but the fact remains that background checks aren’t working

It still comes down to the inability of anyone to be able to reliably predict when someone is going to snap and do something stupid. But what can be reliably predicted, because it’s been shown over and over, is that when a responsible armed citizen is in the vicinity when a shooter opens fire, that shooter injures far fewer people.

The solution to gun violence is simple: more responsible armed citizens. The bad guys will either think twice and decide not to open fire or they will self-select out of this life by trying to harm people.



  1. What happened to Common sense? There is something wrong with the shopper in your Gun Store, acting weird, mumbling to himself. he has $1.000.00 in cash to buy an AR15, plus 500 rounds of mil-spec ammo. Do you run his name? And if it comes back OK? You sell him the goods?

    A short story, I was helping out a Buddy who owned a Gun Store, in Toronto Canada. Ten to 6 (we closed at 6) in rushes a customer, complete with a lunch box, and a receipt, for a repaired Colt .45 1911. He had been drinking, since he left work, travelled by bus, and going home the same way, he said. I said “Too late now to do the paperwork, and test fire” so come back earlier tomorrow, Harry can deal with it.” Harry the owner. Customer pxxxxx.
    Saw Harry a couple of days later, he too was upset. “What, you had a breathalyzer?” he said.

    “No, but I was born in a Pub, and lived in one till I went in the Army,” Nuff said?
    Did not get asked to help out after that.

    I just thought about him falling asleep on the bus.

  2. A few yrs back, while still in collage, I was assigned to write a papper on the impact of guns in socity. I learned a LOT through my rsearch. When a cuntry out lawed fire arms violent crim always spiked. This is pretty well documented in public arkivrs. The bottom line is that guns in society goes a long way to checking violence. My personal perspectives is this: 1 The one common denomenator in violence is a person. Objects can not act on their own. Disarming the inocent gives the criminal the upper hand which is an unlevel field that favors criminals. 2 Hospitals kill more people every single yr than all violent crime combined. Will we outlaw hospitols? Probably not. Killers kill randomly by hit and runs. Will we use their acks of violence in cars to out law cars? Probably not. What about the forced entries where the intruder kills the raped victome with her own kitchen knife. Shall we out law kitchen knives too. Again, probably not. It is just as illogical to out law guns. A step that has been proven disasterous and costly in ever culture that went along with it. It unequivicaly gives a perp the advantage over the victim. Every free law abiding man and woman should be trained and armed. Then the laws of natrual attrition would lower crime drasticaly and in short order. Arm every American. Everywhere. Retire the cops and save even more monney. They do very little good any way and cost a lot. 3 What crime of violence. or otherwise, has ever been prevented by a single law. NOT ONE! Passing laws do not help. They hurt the average citizen and help the criminal. These are the profound results I discovered in my research papper. And hence my opinions I have shared.

  3. Well how the TRUTH comes out but even the TRUTH will not stop the BLOOMBERGS, FEINSTIENS, PELOSIS, GIFFORDS and the entire cabal of anti gunners. A person could get all of these people and all of the other anti gunners and have them sit in a sports stadium while PLACING A NUMBER OF LOADED GUNS ON A TABLE IN THE CENTER OF THE STADIUM and have them sit and watch the GUNS for 24 HOURS and count the times the GUNS LEFT THE TABLE TO GO SHOOT SOME ONE !! At the end of the 24 HOURS each one would be required to publically give a LIST OF THE GUNS THAT LEFT AND SHOT SOME ONE. THEY COULD NOT LIST ONE GUN BUT THEY WOULD STILL WANT TO BAN ALL GUNS.!!

  4. Yeah if you look further into that list of nuts, you would find all are leftards. Well not as sure on three of them, but I’d bet their parents probably were. My opinion based on info that comes out during the time line.

  5. The only thing that will slow down mass shooters & robbers is the fear of some one shooting back. Bloomberg, Feinstein, Pelosi & Giffords don’t want that. So, what does that tell you? According to history, they will line us up for a firing squad.

  6. The thing most stupid people do not see is that others with common sense may see is what our fore fathers did see and know of when they gotten news that a government was being formed in this free country and when they written up the constitution they knew back then that the people in the near future would need something in the constitution that was in ways different from the laws in the constitution in the countries they came from and that was to use Gods laws written within it and is why I for one feel is why they have put God’s given rights to bare our weapons and what those evil people of wealth do not see is their power of wealth that is being used to take those rights from us is what is driving them crazy and it is that wealth that will destroy those types of people in such ways as the water the Romans drank that destroyed their Empire .

  7. the real reason to own guns is to protect the people from the Government when it practices taking over the people thru power and not laws.

  8. Yes, careful… What this tells me is that when this realization takes hold, their goal will be to ban all guns, of all kinds, and do a massive sweep of all properties to collect and destroy them. It also makes you wonder if some of these mass shooters are really martyrs of the leftist camp.

  9. That’s hilarious! The list of shooters listed! Yeah it would even be better yet if all those shooters weren’t either hired CIA members….or FBI members….or brainwashed george soro’s but cases? Look back in history….prior to Obama….the list may have been closer to real and very small at that! It doesn’t take rocket science to figure that out?

  10. If the police restrained from pulling their guns first, there would be less gun fatalities, let the criminal with the gun think he’s getting away and follow him with your technologies, when you do corner him or her, you’ll get a bigger and better out come, less shootings less deaths, and most likely, a bigger gun or and drug bust?
