space_cowgirl: HellRaisingHoosier: I don't have any problem with guns.
I do have a problem with the NRA.

I look forward to a day when the NRA finally recognizes that its greatest enemy isn't gun control supporters, it's people like James Holmes.

Sadly, I don't think that day will ever come.

I look forward to the death of Wayne LaPierre from having his Thai ladyboy be a little too aggressive with the ball gag. Sadly, I think my scenario is more likely to happen than yours.

the_geek: CPennypacker: I'm sure the definition cuts off somewhere before a gun with a hundred round clip

Know how I know you don't know anything about guns? Hint: there's a difference between a clip and a magazine.

Also, my bb gun holds 100 rounds, does that make it an assault weapon?

No, but judging by your clever nerd rage it should be the most powerful weapon you are allowed to have.

Just asking the tough questions here....

1. If everyone carries, some will be too stupid to unload before the airport. DO YOU REALLY WANT LONGER TSA LINES?

2. If everyone carries, don't you think Country / Western music will become more popular? DO YOU REALLY WANT C & W MUSIC BECOMING MORE POPULAR?

3. If everyone carries, how many more babies will be left in cars because hicks will be too concerned with making sure they've got their gun rather than their spawn when they go in the supermarket? DO YOU REALLY WANT MORE BABY GUMBO IN THE BACKSEAT OF CARS?

sprawl15: Epoch_Zero: Oh look, it's this discussion again.

Is this the part where you declare every firearm was crafted from the soul of an aborted babe?

What? No.

You know as well as I do that every firearm is just a physical manifestation of american large penises. Anyone else is just admitting they have a small penis and don't love freedom.

the_foo: (You do realize teargas takes time to spread, right? And that since the gunman was in the front of the theater, there would be a giant light called a "projector" shining on him?)

holy shiat, I wonder if this will be the dumbest thing I read on the internet all day?

MyRandomName: Graffito: I would like the NRA to address the issue of gun violence. Where is their support for mental health access? Where are their studies on how to identify potential perpetrators and prevent such tragedies. If they want a well-armed society, then they must step-up and also address the horrific toll on human lives.

Psychos will find a way to kill no matter the law. Mcveigh killed quite a few without firing a bullet. The psycho in question had explosives in his apartment. Adding law after law to guns will not stop violence. You are asking for laws harping on the vast majority for the actions of very few. Are you going to ask to ban swimming next? Multiple deaths a day from that.

when a guy manages to mass drown people, I'll stop saying you're an idiot

Bloody William: 3: No, the tragedy wouldn't have been averted if someone else in the theater had a gun, you stupid fark. It probably would have resulted in more people dying because of the dark, crowded location, the armored shooter, the use of tear gas, and the fact that most people in stressful situations aren't freaking Deadshot

if only The Libs hadn't banned concealed NVG carry

the_foo: How'd that protectionist fantasy of banning guns work out subby?

Oh that's right. The theater in Aurora bans guns, but for some reason the shooter didn't obey the sign. But all the normal people that were no threat to anyone did, so no one could do anything about it when the whack job opened fire.

There, there. Let it all out. What was it that scarred you? Did a threatening non-white take something of yours? Has your girlfriend/wife stopped faking like she can feel anything when it's in? Did your girlfriend/wife leave you for a well hung non-white?

StrikitRich: Any surprise that the journal of the Rockefellers and the Trilateral Commission is anti-gun?

You forgot the Queen, the Vatican, the Gettys and Colonel Sanders.

After the past week, I wish that theater HAD been full of Internet Tough Guy commandos packing heat. Either way, the story has a happier ending.

What are you talking about, silly Foreign Policy dork? They've got this guy handling their stateside PR and he's doing a bang-up job.
