More lives lost in Chicago on a monthly basis than rare unfortunate incidents like this. Ask Rahm Emanuel to fix his city first.

Has everyone thought yet, and has everyone prayed yet?

Why are you saying Texas? Mesquite? Not a TX city, but a NV City. There are some complex reasons but .... Root Cause is $$$ for corporations(Gun manufacturers)  irrespective who gets their products/what their products can do...When so many restrictions on chemicals/drugs/other substances why not control/ban these dangerous guns..
And see How Australia controlled its gun related violence... after 1996 incident..

http://abcnews.go.com/International/australian-lawmakers-responded-countrys-deadliest-mass-shooting/story?id=50263959

Despite Australia's long history of hunting and sport, the National Firearms Agreement was passed just weeks after the shooting. The new law instated a national firearm registry and a 28-day waiting period for gun sales, and tightened firearm licensing rules, BBC News reported. It also requires that potential gun owners pass a thorough background check and present a "justifiable reason" for owning a gun.
The agreement also included tougher legislation to restrict rapid-fire weapons from public ownership as well as a provision for a temporary gun buyback program of the newly outlawed guns.
By 2015, more than 1 million semi-automatic weapons, roughly a third of the country's firearms, were sold back to the government and destroyed, according to BBC News, nearly cutting the number of gun-owning households in Australia in half.
Then-Prime Minister John Howard was able to convince all of Australia's six states to agree to and pass the sweeping legislation in just 12 days, BBC News reported.
Last year, as the 20th anniversary of the massacre approached, Howard told CBS that it is "incontestable that gun-related homicides have fallen quite significantly in Australia," citing as evidence a 74 percent drop in gun-related suicide rates.
Since the law went into effect, only one mass shooting has occurred in Australia -- a 2014 incident where a farmer shot his wife and three children before killing himself, according to The Associated Press.
A report by the Australia Broadcasting Corporation stated that while Howard's claim is not "cut and dried," the Australian Institute of Criminology found that the rate of homicide victims dying from a gunshot wound has dropped since the reforms came into place.

I wonder why the killer's girlfriend marilou danley is not being grilled more thoroughly by the police. The preparation for the attack must have been going on for several weeks. Surely some of that must have not gone unnoticed by someone who lived with him like her ? How come her claim that she knew nothing is being accepted at face value by the police?

43 guns assembled and thousands of rounds of ammunition stored and she says she knew nothing even though she was living with him !! Unbelievable !!

She was sent to Philippines only later but the preparation for the attack must have started earlier than that.

I'm sure they're doing that.
