or atheist? How can they mourn without God when they're surrounded by Him?

pkcharms: Why do these things happen so frequently in the US and far, far, far, far less frequently Canada?

Gun control.

Bring on the massacres (new window)


Because of course the Canadian registry solved exactly 1 crime and prevented none. How would the registry have prevented the "Montreal Massacre?"

Its a lack of psychiatric support for depressed people and a series of copycat suicidal morons.

Westbound I-4 is shut down. All westbound traffic is being diverted onto S.R. 417.

1:40 p.m.
Tolls have been suspended on:
» S.R. 408 between John Young Parkway and Conway Road
» S.R. 417 between I-4 and the Beachline.

1:37 p.m.
Police said family members of possible victims who were at the Gateway Center should meet at College Park Baptist Church, located at 1914 Edgewater Drive, Orlando.

1:36 p.m.
Sgt. Jones confirmed the shooting took place at Reynolds, Smith and Hills Inc., a business inside the Gateway Center.




With the shooter on the loose, is it really wise to be giving out the address where family members of victims are expected to gather?

Knucklepopper: Now if you want to talk about a culture where civilians are not allowed to carry weapons, I'd encourage you to visit Mexico.

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.

You're right, though, Mexico is truly the real-life example of the "if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns" thing.

He's probably still brown though. I'm pretty sure brown is close enough.

Or walking behind a guy on a crowded sidewalk who suddenly gets a phone call and decides to stop walking and take the call. That shiat pisses me off to the highest of pissivity.

That's all you have?

Fark off....why don't you tell us what kind of gun laws you would like to see? You're either a wuss or a troll....please let us know which one it is.

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



Yeah, and look what good that did. I would rather be shot than stabbed to death

You counted one finger short.

Sept 1969 was a month after Woodstock. That may have been 40 years ago.

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.

We were trying to get him to go to the roof and ham it up for the choppers with a big FARK sign.

RocketCan: Vodka Zombie: coraleaterlinda: Everyone's just going crazy this week.

I'll go out on a limb and say it's the result of Christmas coming too damned early.

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.

/can't buy that lemon pledge


Where you hearing that? CNN says he was fired two years ago for poor performance, and that's the police lady says it's not uncommon for people to stew for two years.

June 2007, he was let go.
