Knucklepopper: The only people allowed to carry weapons on a military base are the cops. Kind'a like your Liberal Utopia.


Yeah, I'm a liberal. I also like guns and am a big Second Amendment supporter, but thanks for playing.

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. Anybody who thinks that it really would reduce gun violence for everyone to walk around with a gun is something of a tard. 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. Quite the opposite, in fact--unless all those gravestones in the old west Boot Hill graveyards are fake.

Nick Nostril: spartywrx: Nick Nostril: reveal101: Just to point out, gun control in Canada isn't that much stricter (really) than in the U.S.

My point? The USA has a cultural problem with guns and gun usage.

Plus we're not all drunk, frozen, or watching hockey all the time.

Although I would trade McDonalds for Timmy's on every corner.

Yeah, me too.

PS - how many SUV-driving, jean-wearing Hispanic-looking people are being pulled over in Orlando right now? Should make for a fun Friday commute.

That's the website for the place the guy shot up. It's not "Smith and Reynolds. It's a facilities and infrastructure consulting firm. Guess what! There's a military connection, too.

"I'm sure there would be far more women involved in shootings like this if they didn't all get into car accidents on the way."

No, the women are at home watching Springer and eating bon bons, collecting child support/welfare checks. They have no reason to go on murderous rampages. They're the cause of the murderous rampages.

Kome: The_Sponge: Kome: The_Sponge: Kome: Something like Britain or Japan would be a good place to look, if you want to have that conversation.


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.

Knucklepopper: August11: he difference today is the weaponry. It is efficient and very concealable.

Doesn't Whitman still hold the record; 14 dead, 32 wounded?


Charles Whitman, the University of Texas at Austin shooter/sniper, killed 14 and wounded 32 on and around the University campus on Aug. 1, 1966. He had already killed his wife and mother earlier in the day.

Hell, when I went to WalMart in early October and saw Christmas stuff put up behind the Halloween stuff, a bunch of kids almost went home with no mothers.

...most of them probably already didn't have daddies...

Rodriguez was fired today, went home, got his gun, came back and killed the people that fired him. I think his x-mas was pretty ruined by the loss of his job.

Actually, it was a great time. Minimal taxes, your land was your own, no PC police everywhere, and women knew their place. Hell, as long as you were well armed and didn't fark with the wrong people life was pretty idealic.

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
