Me too.  I like to know what is going on so I always watch the local news in the morning why I am getting ready for work.  You are right about the media not reporting on lots of things too.  I think they pretty much report only issues that further the stations agenda.  Kind of like CNN favors the Clintons and FOX favors Trump.  I have to laugh sometimes when they have an opposing view representative on there and they end up talking over each other.

I don't think we need more gun control laws though.  I do think we need to put some teeth in the ones we have.  How could a person that was on the FBI watch list twice, still get a concealed weapons permit or firearms license in the state of Florida?  Sounds like one government agency not talking to another to me!

State of Florida's government is all screwed up.
Dear Lord, On this day, please wrap your arm around my shoulder and keep your hand over my mouth.  Amen

I think all the state governments have their issues but some are definitely worse than others. 

In this case though I think the FBI is the one that dropped the ball.  There was even a report that a gun shop filed saying that this person was trying to buy ammo in large bulk quantities.  They didn't sell to him but what happened to the report?  It probably sat on someone's desk and then conveniently got burried when it came out that a report had been made.  This kind of stuff isn't dug into especially by the media that favors more gun control and outlawing the most popular semi-auto rifle in the word.
