James!: But let's not talk about gun control.


Why did they seize the poor innocent guns? Won't someone think of the guns?
 
2012-07-27 12:31:28 PM  
Why would you threaten? If I was going to do this, I would, you know, not WARN people. I don't get it.

But thanks twatwaffle for that.

So, how much do we wanna bet that all the weapons were legal?

They should return those guns to the forest where they belong so they can frolic in the sun like the innocent, magical creatures they are.

Another attention starved person. Enough with threatening people. Just start a crappy YouTube channel.

And yet, had they ignored him, you two would be railing about how the Government failed everyone when he shot the place up.

In this day and age, what makes you think this is acceptable behavior as an adult? I mean, really.

They can't cuz they are insane.

So the system is working as intended.

Great! Lets pass some more laws.

Can I have his guns if he won't be using them?
 
2012-07-27 12:37:19 PM  
I'm going to see the movie tomorrow, hopefully there aren't any more copycats.

And I'm NOT going to say which theater I'm going to so the farker who has a plan won't find me!!!

It's simple math: look at the amount of people murdered by guns each year vs the amount of people whose lives are saved by guns each year.

Would that make this one sideshow mel?

How do we know it wasn't an off the cuff statement in anger, by someone who has guns? We all do it, "arrrgh I'll kill him!!".
 
2012-07-27 12:38:22 PM  
What an idiot. You don't tell people you're going to do it, you just do it.
 
2012-07-27 12:38:36 PM  
I cant help but think it is going to get harder to buy firearms in the future.
 
2012-07-27 12:38:57 PM  
If only all of his coworkers had been armed with assault weapons, they could have stopped this hypothetical rampage!

Yes, this is what I was saying, that this was acceptable behavior. Absolutely. How the hemorrhaging fark did you get that from what I typed?
 
2012-07-27 12:39:07 PM  
But according to the "There should be no gun laws" "Gun laws never stop anyone" crew, the cops should have never talked to this guy, and no one can do anything about him until he actually starts gunning people down.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: It's simple math: look at the amount of people murdered by guns each year vs the amount of people whose lives are saved by guns each year.


Once a gun jumped into a pool and saved my sister from drowning. Unfortunately, it went off when it was giving her mouth to mouth.

That gun saved and killed her.

so what do you guys recommend for defending myself and my friends and loved ones at the Hobbit premiere later this year? because at this rate it looks like i'm going to have to roll up to the Royal 8 Theater in an APC if i want to survive the previews.

/new kevlar suits for the office?

If owning an "arsenal" of guns makes you go crazy and shoot up a place, when should I expect to finally snap? Is there like, a time line for this?
 
2012-07-27 12:40:34 PM  
That was just about the stupidest "report" I ever read. No mention of the perps name, just pronoun references. Was it written by two fourth grade girls? Well, it is from Baltimore...
 
2012-07-27 12:40:37 PM  

James!: But let's not talk about gun control.


Maryland is one of the tougher states on gun control.
 
2012-07-27 12:40:55 PM  
This happened last night in Pendleton, IN.

1 bystander killed, 2 officers shot, K9 dog killed, suicide

He was dressed in a "flak" suit and had an AK apparently
 
2012-07-27 12:40:57 PM  
Sources said that the man was fired from his job and made threats using words similar to terminology used at the shootings in Aurora.

When they outlaw words, only outlaws will have words.
 
2012-07-27 12:41:31 PM  
A nut with a stash of weapons?

In the Baltimore area?!

The hell you say.

I clicked the link expecting to see a clown that was about to go postal.

Subby disappoints yet again.

Only if you buy them through a store.

Grenade launchers. You can't be too careful.

Right some people, think the US should be a place where you should have to bring a gun and body armor every time you go out in public. Sounds to me like immature people with machismo fantasies.
 
2012-07-27 12:42:55 PM  
What I'm wondering about is, where do these people get the money for this shiat? Firearms are expensive! Even if you go to a gun show, you can be looking at $400, $500 for a reasonably good pistol, and that's at the low end. Some of the more powerful semi automatics are well into the $1500 range, and bullets ain't cheap. The pictures of that creepy guy from Maine, that looked like over $15k worth of weaponry.

The second Tuesday of the month at 2:30 pm. But there's usually a long line so get there early.

If Sideshow Bob inspired him, that makes him Sideshow Sideshow Bob.
 
2012-07-27 12:43:32 PM  
This guy had a specific target in mind, and didn't carry it out; hence it was not like the Aurora shooting (sensationalized though it makes the headline).

The first rule of Fight going postal club is you don't talk about going postal club.

I just wish more of them didn't follow the rules.
