Does this huge influx of violence scare the shiat out of anybody else in our country? I am only 21. I don't know if it was like this when older generations were growing up. Perhaps it was, but just not widespreadly reported because they didnt run news 24-7 back then. Either way, it's a big issue, and I can't grasp why we aren't getting psych type people in schools to teach our kids nonviolent conflict resolution, and doing everything we farking can to figure out what makes people do these awful things and find a way to fix it. We have computers and unmanned drones and MRI machines and a pill for every farking ailment. Why is stopping humans from killing eachother so low on the list? We're supposed to be a country of innovators. Surely this violence can be stopped, slowed, or at least dampened, some how some way.

Whether or not people can bring their firearms to work, that will do nothing to prevent shootings. Declaring a place a "gun free zone" doesn't suddenly create a force field that blocks out firearms.

You do realize that military bases are strict no gun zones except for police and training missions. All those M16s are kept locked up and away from their ammo.

So yes, it is too bad no one had a gun except for the cop who showed up 3 minutes into the slaughter and 12 people were already dead

1) Once again....the original intent of The Second Amendment was based upon the premise that all able-bodied males are part of the militia. Of course, with passing legal decisions, we now have laws that realize men and women share the same rights.

2) If I have to turn in my firearms to the government, yes it is. (Look what has aleady happened to gun owners in California.)

3) Of course you have a right to live, but just because I'm a gun owner doesn't put your life in danger. It's not like my firearms sneak out at night and shoot people. I alone am responsible for my behavior, and that doesn't change because some crazy fark went on a shooting spree.

4) I'm not farking trolling, I just happen to support a very important right.

You know what we ought to do. We ought to pass a law that says you can't use a gun to kill a lot of people. I think that would make sense, as laws go. I mean, that would prevent a lot of these shootings from happening, passing a law that makes it illegal to use a gun to go around killing people.

Because right now, as soon as someone gets a gun, they start killing people left and right, and it's just becoming a problem.

HellHammerX: rastjr: Too many guns.

Take away law abiding citizen's guns.....still too many guns. Banning guns won't stop murder, there will still be guns on the black market. Criminals don't seem to care for rules and junk


People who just get depressed and go postal usually don't scour the black market for guns, or even have those kind of connections. criminals will still get guns, spur of the moment crazies who shoot up office buildings and schools will not.

AdolfOliverPanties: I say if you are 18 or over, you should be required to carry a firearm at all times in public.

I know you're being sarcastic, but something like that has been tried, and to the chagrin of anti-gun folks everywhere it worked pretty damn well. Look up Kennesaw, GA, AKA "Gun City, USA". Basically, as long as you are legally able to, and can't come up with a damn good reason not to, you are required to be armed. Their crime rate went from above the nat'l average to well below in just a couple years. And no, they aren't all walking around afraid of each other, the only folks that are scared are the criminals. Which is how it should be.

/Huh. That ended up being a much longer reply than I intended.

Also, I'd like to put my vote/wager in for "was denied unemployment/severance/some kind of settlement from ex-employer."

If he hasn't worked there for years (I realize this has not been verified, but if the talking heads on cable can speculate wildly, why can't I?) but just got around to shooting up the place, this suggests something recently happened that really pissed him off and that removed any options for redress, so he decided to get the last word, so to speak.

Kinda surprised it's not happening more often. Maybe another year, when more people's unemployment has run out.

Lollerwaffle: Does this huge influx of violence scare the shiat out of anybody else in our country? I am only 21. I don't know if it was like this when older generations were growing up. Perhaps it was, but just not widespreadly reported because they didnt run news 24-7 back then. Either way, it's a big issue, and I can't grasp why we aren't getting psych type people in schools to teach our kids nonviolent conflict resolution, and doing everything we farking can to figure out what makes people do these awful things and find a way to fix it.

But supporting the right of everyone to have guns isn't the same as saying that it would be smart for everyone to carry a boom stick around at all times.

In fact, we kinda tried that about 140 years ago here out west, and it wasn't exactly known as a time of peace and nonviolence.

Bullshiat. Ever heard of The Second Amendment?

Yes. Know what a militia is?


When The Bill of Rights was drafted, every single able-bodied male was considered to be part of the militia.

Oh, so things in 2009 are exactly like they were in the 1770s?


And their membership in that militia and therefore their right to bear arms was subject to regulation by the state. Heller is nothing more than judicial legislation. Scalia likes guns so he wrote an opinion divorced from the the text and intent of the amendment.

Gun cultures are inherently healthy. It's more than simply carrying. It's also comfort with a weapon, training, safety and knowledge. I carry a Ruger P90 and I can promise you I will do everything in my power to prevent a shooting like this one.
Now if you want to talk about a culture where civilians are not allowed to carry weapons, I'd encourage you to visit Mexico.
 
2009-11-06 01:48:46 PM  
Well, gun laws or not, things like this will happen. America loves guns, we are all about it. The only countries with higher gun related homicides than the US are Columbia, Paraguay, Guatemala, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Costa Rica, Belarus and Barbados. The difference is that the United States is the only 1st world country on the list.

The question is not whether or not we should limit guns. There are countries with higher overall homicide rates which are not related to guns. The question is why are Americans so homicidal? Yes, there will always be crime, but the crime rates do not have to be so high.

CCW or not, gun deaths will happen in America. We are just homicidal mofos.

I just locked up my cabinets, left the key on someone's desk, and got on the bus.

If he yelled "Jesus is my lord and savior" before opening fire, can we blame Christianity?


Tell you what troll, you get a list of all the large churches that advocate murder and all the people that followed through, and the body count that resulted.

In the mean time, I'll post a list of all the large mosques that advocate murder and all the islamofacists that followed through and the body count that resulted.

Any bets on who's list is longer?

Hint: Your list is going to be
0 : 1-2 : 3-4

My list is going to be
Hundreds : hundreds : thousands


i'm going to go with Roman Catholic, tens of thousands, and hundreds of thousands, just for starters though.

Nogale: Are they required to undergo firearms training and regular practice? I'd think that having an armed, but untrained, population would be a recipe for disaster.

Training, yes. Practice, not sure. It's been a while since I checked into it. Most gun owners really do take that stuff seriously though. I take that back, most folks who carry take it seriously, and will make sure they train themselves. All of them that I know (including myself) are better trained to handle firearms than most cops.

Interesting (to me) anecdote: I was talking to a couple of friends of mine a while ago about carrying guns. One is a guy that is not completely ant-gun, the other had just completed her police training. I asked him who he trusts more to carry a firearm, and he said that he trusts her over me, on the basis that she's a cop, so she must be trustworthy, right? I then asked her to describe the firearms training she had received. Turns out, I had had the same level of training by the time I was 16, and before she entered the academy she had never even touched a gun. Yet she should be trusted implicitly, and I shouldn't be near a gun.

/Not bashing cops at all, just saying that it's not a safe assumption that gun owners are untrained.

Perhaps it was, but just not widespreadly reported because they didnt run news 24-7 back then. Either way, it's a big issue, and I can't grasp why we aren't getting psych type people in schools to teach our kids nonviolent conflict resolution, and doing everything we farking can to figure out what makes people do these awful things and find a way to fix it. We have computers and unmanned drones and MRI machines and a pill for every farking ailment. Why is stopping humans from killing eachother so low on the list? We're supposed to be a country of innovators. Surely this violence can be stopped, slowed, or at least dampened, some how some way.

Well, Mexicans aren't officially allowed to carry weapons, but they certainly can and do carry them. Any Mexican who wants one can easily have one as long as they have the money to buy one--and the most common source to buy one are the cops, many of whom probably make far more money selling guns on the side than they make from their cop salaries.

It's sad. I have friends who live their lives trying to mind their own business and want to keep a gun at home. gun control is in the hands of the Mexican Defense Ministry and under their rules, you can only carry a .32 cal or below. Yet whackjobs are mounting 50-cals on the back of Ford F-250s and running rampant along the border. You're still not going to be able to defend very well against that kind of firepower even with semi-automatic rifles but it's indicative of the power of federal government that you can't even try.

I blame these shootings on company HR departments. I've trained new hires and you can tell from the first encounter which ones have that underlying anger and resentment for corporate structure...the ones that will resist all attempts at coaching them into common sense and spend their entire day pissed off, only happy when they find a like-minded soul to complain to. How these guys/gals slip past the interview process is a mystery to me.

IXI Jim IXI: the_rev: jiggs: I was supposed to consult at that building today. On a lmid-level floor. It is pretty big building.

If you'd been there, none of this would have happened. How can you live with yourself?

This shooter was distinctly heard to say, as he walked in the door, "If I don't run into that guy jiggs today, I'm just gonna start shooting people!"


"I was here for some consulting. Fcucker didn't show. Prepare to die."

I'm not a violent guy, but when I'm carrying (even concealed) if someone gets in my face I back the fark down immediately. Yeah, there's a lot of big talk all over the place, but when it comes right down to it sane folks don't actually kill over small shiat. And those that are willing to, well, banning guns isn't going to stop them.

It has happened at least twice here in Phoenix in the past few years. One was an ex-employee who shot his former boss on Cave Creek road near Hatcher, and the other was fired security guard who shot a couple of co-workers on 25th Ave. north of Dunlap.

I was thinking the same thing. The reporter on CNN is completely convinced he's already killed himself - but I think it's possible he got away.

There's no way the building barricades went up instantaneously. He fled the scene and could be miles away.

He could go right over to Disneyworld and just hang out - no one would ever pick him out in a huge crowd.
