    1st mike turner only cares cause his daughter was there and for Nan whaley she was bragging about laws saying they did one thing when they did the opposite . as for background checks most of the shooters passed them and for mag limits that kid would have killed way more people and hurt way more in a truck going down threw the Oregon so now does that mean ban trucks to hell he could have built a bomb and killed more and those are already illegal to make but look at it this way anyone willing to commit a multiple first degree felonies of murder doesn't care about 2nd 3rd and 4th degree charges no are they so why limit the good people on how they can protect themselves cause of what a small percentage of the population that are evil do
