    a) Ban all weapons that are by all accounts, not for hunting or self defense. All automatic machine guns are obviously unnecessary. Ban all types of lethal bullets of the type this psychopath used. b) crack down on Hollywood's excessive use of violent imagery in films...they voted for obama, time to start to help him out...Hollywood have been hypocrites for far too long. c) crack down on all violent video games. It’s time to go after the studios who make them. d) better screening and rigorous background checks on mental health patients and kids who have had mental health issues and do not allow them to buy any guns whatsoever. Tough sentencing on illegal gun ownership. Stop letting the ACLU dominate these discussions... we must put limits on civil liberties for the greater good. If you want to tackle or at least mitigate this problem, you MUST go after all sides of the problem. I really hope obama doesn’t turn this into a political witch hunt. That won’t help anyone. Lastly, stop using campaigns to divide people...I don’t want to be too political here, but obama in this last campaign really pitted one american against another .....in every demographic...rich vs. poor, men v women, young v old, illegal immigrants v white legals, christian vs secular, etc...etc...he really didn’t encourage the bringing together of people, of the nation, as he once promised...
