The shooter has to be a Trump supporter!
That was the call. There was an immediate demand for “assault weapon and full capacity magazine bans.”
Except….. Colorado has a magazine ban, although exactly what its status is right now is unclear; there has been recent litigation.
And Colorado has a “Red Flag” law too.
And the assailant, based on reporting, had previously attacked a fellow student without cause in what was arguably a felony assault yet was treated as so often is – that violence was soft-pedaled despite him having a history of making violent threats.

We don’t yet know whether the weapon was legally purchased in a store, or exactly where it came from, so whether a robust prosecution would have prevented the purchase is not yet known. People do steal guns and someone who is intent on murder doesn’t give a crap about committing theft first.
As it turns out the assailant wasn’t a Trump supporter. In fact he was a Trump hater. We isn’t “white”, he is a Syrian immigrant who was naturalized. He got his talking points almost-literally from CNN, pMSNBC and the rest of the leftist, Trump-hating cabal. He threatened to file false hate crime reports against anyone who didn’t like him because he was a Muslim. He believed he was entitled to not only file false charges related to hate offenses he also threatened to kill people (his entire wrestling team, from some reports and from which he was ejected) and did cold-cock another person without consequence. He might well have been literally psychotic from other reports, although a motive has not yet been disclosed (and likely isn’t yet determined.) If that’s not enough he was known to the FBI as well and linked to someone else allegedly under investigation.
