It’s far to early to have all the facts about the tragedy in Fort Lauderdale, but a couple of things seem readily apparent as issues which should have prevented the shooter from traveling to Florida. He had been to the FBI and stated he was basically crazy which IMO should have immediately banned him from flying. If we don’t have that rule on the books, we should. At a minimum he should not be allowed to travel and even further if someone is not stable they should not be able to purchase and possess a firearm. We need to have a stringent litmus test to be sure we do not infringe upon second amendment rights, but if someone is not sane they should not be handling firearms and should not be traveling by air. Hearing someone came to an FBI office and told them he was not sane and was later allowed to fly and bring a firearm in checked luggage without any red flags is an area of concern!
