So the NRA financed and aided Sideshow Bob with the cunning intention of convincing everyone to buy and carry a gun.

That's actually less insane than the NRA's argument that Obama will take their guns in his second term because he didn't in his first...

Have you been reading Huffington Post or any Fark thread about Aurora, CO? The antis aren't just pressing for a renewed AWB, they want registration, confiscation, etc.

Never mind that his AR jammed and that he switched to his shotgun. We need to ban babby-killing assault weapons with extended clip magazines!

If 50 million people with guns can't stop these shootings, then 51 million will!

I'm not surprised. I wish someone if not someones in that theater were carrying that night. The chances of innocent people getting shot in the crossfire would have been more than offset by the chances of a trained (range time) law abiding citizen throwing a few in the X ring of this douche's chest. Innocent people were dying anyway, and if i had been at that place at that time, i would have chosen to be able not only to defend myself and my family, but the other innocents there too. Better chance having a gun you can use than just cowering back in fear and waiting to get shot like a dog.

Buy them cheap in Colorado, then move somewhere like Texas or Georgia, where guns will pretty much never be banned.

Where's that picture with the caption:

Must go to gun store before Muslin make illagal?
 
2012-07-24 12:24:04 PM
This is great, because the next time there's an insane gunman in a darkened, smoke-filled theater, there will be that many more people shooting randomly and the number of people not shot will be greater.

Or something.

Gun control is the theory that a dozen dead movie goers in a Colorado theater is morally and politically preferable to a live patron explaining to the police how James Holmes got shot.

Just curious - would it make any difference in debating the application of stricter gun laws in this context to know whether the shooter had a concealed carry permit?

How about a mental health assessment for anyone looking to buy a firearm? Is that too much to ask? Background checks don't pick up crazy if crazy was never diagnosed.

So there's nothing to worry about then?

People aren't buying guns because they suddenly think they could protect everyone in a situation like Aurora.

They're buying guns because they like guns and are worried that the fallout will limit accessibility. Stock up before it's illegal.

yeah because now everyone knows how easy it is to get a gun there since most of the news on the story was centered around that fact.
 
2012-07-24 12:30:22 PM
From my interactions with other drivers, people's behavior at fast food restaurants, news interviews with the "man on the street", and the editorial pages of newspapers, I'd be happy if they made sure NONE of these morons is allowed to carry.

It reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer gets a gun and uses it to turn off the lights, open cans, etc.

FTFY. Just upping the sarcasm a notch.

In most situations, you have to rely on yourself for defense. The cops won't be there in time.
If you have to depend on someone else to defend you, you are defenseless. You might get to pick the predator that gets you, but that's the extent of your power.

I came here to say this. I mean, sure some are probably foaming at the mouth to be the hero in a future attack, but most are watching tv thinking, "Crap, better get grandfathered in before I have to jump through more hoops"

This!

Suggesting that the NRA had anything to do with Sideshow Bob going nuts in CO is just pathetic.

Had anyone in the Theater been armed, this would in my opinion been a shorter, and less costly firefight between a Citizen, and a complete Looney. If Dumb Dumb the Red had been unable to acquire the firearms he used, he would likely have created a bomb instead of smoke grenades. Greater Carnage, more loss of life, and for what? Noteriety.

I endorse this message. I like the ones that suggest you run. Last time I checked, you can't outrun a bullet.
I was always taught: run away from a knife, run toward a gun. If you can get inside of about 6 feet, you have a good chance. And throw anything you can reach in the gunman's face.

Of course, if you have a weapon and training, just pop him. From cover.
 
2012-07-24 12:36:06 PM
OK, you know what? You want to pack heat at the library or supermarket? Fine. Go pass an FBI weapons training course. The same one they give to agents. You do it at your own cost too. If it's that damn important to you, if you really feel like your life is in danger every time you enter a Denny's, this should be no problem for you.

Ironically that theatre used to be gang central back in the crips v. Bloods days. I blame the mexican cartels for making the predominantly black gangs obsolete.

Bingo. Panicking crowd effect, plus the darkness, plus the teargas, plus his body armor means not a chance in hell of getting the shot off, and probably resulting in you killing a few innocence in the crossfire yourself.

Please. He wouldn't have even gotten his gun out of its holster. He would have been laying on the ground curled up in a fetal position crying "Why is this happening to me?"
