    You can by as many rifles as you can carry if you have a single pistol purchase permit issued by your local sheriff. But you can't purchase an assault rifle. And honestly I've never seen an assault rifle for sale in any of the many gun stores I've been in over the years here in NC. I'm not sure you know what an assault rifle is.

    Criminals are not developing guns and ammo in their basements but gain illegal access to guns thru lax policy's and procedures and obstruction to refinements from gun extremist. The only way to insure that the Second Amendment is protected for future generations is to pass legislation and enforcement with penalties so criminals and irresponsible gun owners do not have access and or have access taken away. Only the responsible worthy should have guns and anything less should be a risk to confiscation along with incarceration.

    The guy was already a convicted felon. Are you trying to suggest he had a wholesome upbringing? I think the original poster is likely correct. At the very least, he likely came from a broken and/or abusive home.

    A. Do you know the accused man?
    B. Are you psychic?
    C. Do you not realize that spousal/partner abuse occurs across all ethnic and cultural groups, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all religions and none?
    D. Do you really believe that all people who need government help ---for any length of time --- are lowlife? If so, then you should only drive on those roads you help pay to build. Didn't pay state or local taxes in South Carolina? Then you may not drive on anything but interstate highways there.

    I can walk into a local sporting goods store, fill out some paperwork, and be out of there in 30min with as many assault rifles as I can carry. So, please, don't tell me it's not easy.
    And we all know this is a left-wing lie!!! Just like their fearless leader.

    Bring back and enforce the death penalty, then these lovely individuals can get what they deserve!

    SO there are criminals who have NO respect for the law, gun laws or any others. Since a group of people choose not to obey laws you want to infringe on the rights and freedoms of ALL honest, tax paying, non-criminals who happen to want to enjoy owning an inanimate object.

    I will never understand liberals. It is not enough that you don't like something and think it should be "regulated" (which is liberal code for banned as you will use any regulation as a step to your ultimate goal) but you want to impose your holier than thou beliefs on everyone else. Leave us alone and go from whence you came and be with like minded subjects.
