Here's a little datapoint just to chew on (I myself advocate for universal background checks too)...

So under Federal law, any state felony conviction is an automatic disqualifier to gun ownership. In other words, a felony conviction means this person cannot pass the FFL background check.

Under Texas law, a convicted felon is allowed to possess a gun provided it is only in his/her own home 10 years after the date of discharge. So this means after 10 years, the convicted felon can have a shotgun or something in his house for protection but he can't take it anywhere or go hunting with it.

The problem becomes, how does this person get a gun that he is legally allowed to own now if universal background checks are instituted? Why is Congress even allowed to regulate all guns in the first place (the answer is through a fantastic expansion of the commerce clause).

The point is, gun laws are so random and arbitrary. It is an incredibly complex issue with wheels within wheels.

So a customer does not have recourse against a gun store that refuses to do business with them.
Ah I see, good point.

I'm not saying this is a conspiracy but this is the 3rd video showing muzzle flash from the lower floors.

They could still be lethal from that distance
The issue is they didn't know what floor or position the shooter was shooting from
From the radio calls, most thought it was coming from the center / lower floors

That's less than 500m. Well within the effective kill range of a 5.56 round regardless of match or weight.

Dan maybe a douche bag, but this guy flew his personal helicopter over to Houston to help rescue people after hurricane Harvey.

He was just trying to help

you don't seriously think it'd be a good idea to return fire on the hotel, do you?

I was talking with my buddy at lunch.. again there was a lot of firepower around the venue.
It was just a nightmare situation. Honestly, only a sniper unit could have made a difference.

The fallout though if you struck an innocent bystander in the hotel would make the Anti-Gun lobbyists day. Just saying.

But being a badass on the internet isn't the same as actually being a badass.
He's a womanizing globe trotting douche that plays poker and shoots guns.
If he really wanted to help, he could have helped the victims.
No, he wanted some glory.

The real badasses are the ones who took to action without someone following and livestreaming.
Like that guy who stole the truck and shuttled people to hospitals.
