Open-carry, baby. Open. Carry.

Short memory, huh?

Ever heard of a Gun Free Zone? That university is one of them. Worked out well for them didn't it?


Geez I'm getting sick of the smug attitude that the pro-gun people have with situations like this. I seriously doubt that conceal carry would stop all shootings. Wouldn't that just make that person an attractive target to the shooter. And what if the shooter thought of that and managed to get a bulletproof vest, even if you were able to shoot him with quick reflexes the vest wouldn't prevent the shooter from keep shooting people. Now I believe that people have the right to get a gun. But I don't believe that any idiot should be able to carry a gun as they damn well please.

Now we have a two tragedies over the course of two days and the pro-gun people are already getting on people's case before we even caught the shooter. Give it a rest already.

Because the ball is 14" long and Foot-and-two-inches-ball just sounds stupid.

Mayoboy made me laugh - but yeah Pigskinball sounds good - probably not very marketable in the middle east though

I can't help but think that a simple, nutritious breakfast could have averted this tragedy.

/he eats shiat for breakfast?

Gunshot heard about a half-hour ago at Hollowbrook Apartments complex. Mayor Buddy Dyer stating that gunman has been apprehended.

So he's been apprehended - but not in the building!

He went to his mommy's house.

He did not commit suicide and he wasn't in the building.

Now we're zeroing in... do you have materials to make a nice "I heart FARK" sign?


I LOL'd.

OK, here's the latest news...6 total shot, 5 wounded, 1 dead. Gunman is a Hispanic male named Jason Rodriguez. Disgruntled ex-employee is the motive.

OOoh, a co-worker says that she heard that he's been found at his mom's house.
 
2009-11-06 02:26:13 PM
Rodriguez IS in custody. Prosecution will begin immediately, focusing on his production of "Spy Kids" and "Spy Kids II"... a far more serious offense than shooting up an office building.

Yeah, so this started one block from my Mom's house and ended three doors down from my grandmother's apartment, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Actually, I'm not. I'm not at all.

I don't care what bullshiat you've had to deal with in your life. I don't care how distorted your view of reality has become. You don't farking destroy other families and other lives for your own purposes. It's farking selfish and weak.

We all are stuck on this god-forsaken rock whether we like it or not. You are not the center of the universe. You are no more of an individual than anyone else. You are not special. Deal with your shiat just like everybody else deals with theirs, or remove yourself from the living. But don't farking take others down with you, assholes.

Atypical Person Reading Fark: bartink: Atypical Person Reading Fark: He could go right over to Disneyworld and just hang out - no one would ever pick him out in a huge crowd.

He is most likely to be caught with more people having a chance to recognize him, if you ask me.

In little studies I've done with my students, they are not at all good at picking out a person in a crowd after seeing his picture once or twice. They are good at categorizing the person (male, fortyish, Hispanic) but not at memorizing the facial features of a person they saw briefly - and this is when they know they're supposed to try.

I didn't make the experiment up - it's been published (it's not my own idea).

Most people on their way to Disneyworld didn't hear the news and they're not glued to their TV's or teh internets.

Be a perfect place to hang out for awhile. Exit with the massive crowds at the end of the day, even with photo surveillance, they won't be able to find him quickly in a huge crowd.

He does need a different car, though or to take public transportation to his next hiding spot.

That's another place that you can hide in plain sight: a bus. People on the bus are not that likely to remember a face they saw briefly (if they even watch CNN).

Most people in America wouldn't be able to pick out Major Malik or this guy in a crowd today. That's why even with good photos of criminals (like the ones from convenience store robberies in my own medium sized town) it's usually someone who actually knows the guy who turns him in.

But it is a big building, maybe he is dead in some non-obvious place. I'll try and post to eat crow later if it turns out I'm wrong.


Why would someone pay $90 just to hide from the police?

My point isn't that everyone will remember what he looks like. My point is that the odds that more of them who do remember what he looks like will be in a crowd, instead of a smaller group. You say that he will be lost in the crowd. I'm saying he will spotted by a sharp individual in the crowd itself. I see it as a numbers game. Giving thousands of people a chance to spot him raises the odds of him being spotted rather than being lost in the shuffle.

I'd much rather take my chances in the corner of a quiet library than a crowded place like Disney World.

Gun control.

*Face Palm*

Riiight....it has nothing to do with culture or demographics.


This. Kim Gill, the guy who shot up Dawson College a couple years ago, used guns that he had legally purchased and registered. I'm not saying the federal long-gun registry is a bad thing. I'm just saying that it has no bearing on whether or not someone is going to go on a shooting spree.

Yeah, it's too bad there weren't any people with guns at Fort Hood yesterday. Because if the people there had been armed, the shooter would've never done what he did. I said we should allow people to have guns on our military bases to prevent such things in the future!


Personnel on US military bases are not armed

I think a librarian would notice you right away, myself. The ones I know are media-obsessed and have minds like steel traps.

But, if a person went to Disneyworld today specifically to look for the guy, then yeah, if he were there, they'd have some chance of finding him.

But if he put on sunglasses and a baseball cap, changed his clothes, I say even the dedicated face-memorizer would have a low batting average at Disneyworld.
