I can't wait until all these crazy-ass lone gunmen and serial killers finally get together on the internet and conspire to eliminate massacre-free workweeks.

MilitaryTigger: attempting to make laws to convince criminals not to commit crimes is akin to making laws about bears crapping in the woods.

So why do we have laws in the first place?

Lollerwaffle: Perhaps in order to own a gun you should have to go through a hardcore psych exam, and the only people that mostly had guns would be law enforcement, and we could find a way to get all of these illegal guns off the streets.

yeah, because the cops are more mentally balanced than your average CCW permit holder.

try again.

You mean the TSG Mugshot thread where I interrupted the topic to tell farkers about this shooting rampage in Orlando; gave a link when I found one; and then wondered after 15 minutes if something was wrong ("*wondering if he's been unknowingly banned*") that no one said anything about it, unlike the 900+ comments here? (3 comments)

Or when I asked in the second Ft. hood thread if there was only 1 suspect? (1 comment)

Or the first Ft. Hood thread where I posted a news update, gave some links to questions farkers asked in regards to my post, made a comment about to Calgary Flames fan that was prolonged to 3 comments (yeah, off topic like your post, right?), and then said hi to someone who said hi to me first. (15 comments over 10 hours)

Oh! Maybe the 2 friendly responses I made to farkers' jokes in the "bird to sabatoges the LHC" thread?

Maybe the 1 comment I made in the "75% of American recruits too fat, stupid or crazy to get into the military" thread in reaction to a similar "response" to me by What_Now?

How about the one post, the answer "42", in the "Dumb: Moonshine + Rider + Horse= ? A OK|Splat & Trample Dumber: Moonshine + Gullible Reporter + Locals= ?Pre-Conquest Mayan Horses|Stickin' It To The Spanish. Bonus Fark: Town is = ?Wet|Dry" thread?

It MUST be the thread where, on his last day the EOD Soldier was killed, after I said RIP for him, I tried to stomp on a troll (who happens to be a perfect example of a REAL attempt to garner attention)? (3 comments)

Rodriguez surrendered peacefully and was in custody Friday evening. Police said he apologized as officers handcuffed him.

"I'm just going through a tough time right now. I'm sorry," officers quoted him as saying.


I was once "let go" for six months from a company I was working for. As bad as things got, the worst I ever contemplated doing was taking my meager unemployment check and buying a half-gallon of cappuccino chunky chocolate from Braums. Shooting up your former place of employment seems pretty extreme to me.

You're right. I actually feel foolish because I took the bait and went into too much detail just to show he's making an accusation with no real evidence. On Fark no less, LoL

No...it's not a tough time for you now, but it will become so. And you're really not sorry now, butt you will be.

One has to wonder if besides shooting random employees, why a guy who's pissed about getting fired would not just shoot the guy who fired him? Why shoot people who have absolutely no involvement whatsoever? Also, usually, these assbags shoot themselves like the cowards that they are. Nice to see that the last 2 will be up for the media court.

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. 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.

Oh hai. I'm 21 too, so I understand your concerns. Nonetheless, I don't really chalk up the increasing violence to a trend (like things will be even MORE violent when we're 30), but rather to the sad state of the economic and military situations in the US. If you look at other periods of economic depression you see similar patterns of violence (like the gangsters in the 30s). People need to feed their families, and if they can't do so through honest labor they'll do so through crime.
Hopeless people commit acts of senseless violence. The Ft. Hood shooter and this guy were both, for different reasons, feeling hopeless. Were we not engaged in overseas wars, Maj. Hasan might not have felt the need to shoot up the army base, and this shooter (Rodriguez) might not have felt the need to kill anyone were he adequately employed.
So no, I don't think that all this violence reflects some sort of decay of human nature. Instead, we're seeing an unfortunate but normal side of human nature that comes out when people are placed in desperate situations by circumstances beyond their control.

anyone who really thinks more guns are the answer are the reason why this sh*t continues to happen.

Raspil: anyone who really thinks more guns are the answer are the reason why this sh*t continues to happen.

Right, because all those gun-free zones magically repel all firearms, preventing any sort of violent crime from taking place there. Makes perfect sense.

Similarly, denying potential victims from possessing an effective means of protecting themselves from violent criminals[1] will somehow make them less likely to be attacked.

Makes perfect sense.

RocketCan: rastjr: The_Sponge: rastjr: The_Sponge: rastjr: Too many guns.


Nope....just too many trolls like you.


God, you are an idiot.


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.


That's all you're worth.

So instead of actually indulging in that user's request you just further the childish retorts. That sounds logical.

People should have the right to arm bears but not assault arms as we use arms daily unless you're an amputee.


rastjr is a known troll. I keep 'em farkied in red and get great entertainment from watching them. I'm not sure if they know they are a troll so they might be just an idiot. When they first got on the Fark scene they had a whole different tone, when they discovered certain things fit with the crowd they adjusted. I think they're just a kid or they're mentally retarded.

I love this!!!


Two stories in two days and farkos assholes jump to the wrong conclusions in BOTH cases.


Maybe it's time for you children to just STFU with your assumptions and wait for the facts.

To quote our President " what a jackass ! "

that's not just him, but you Obama cock suckers too!

Seriously, it's best for all of you to quit failing so catastrophically.


But hey, if you like that sort of thing......

Okay now you have just turned the retard up to 11. It's like warp retard or something. Super saturated retard if you will. Beyond retard and into the realm of Bush/Palin intellect. What amazes me the most is that you can write at all. Good on you. I bet your current level of development has amazed all who have known you since birth. You, my friend, are like the Helen Keller of your particular mental deficit.
