RexTalionis: The shooter was apparently firing from a building with automatic weapons.


Yeah.... right.... because automatic weapons are so inexpensive and any criminal can get their hands on them right?

walkerhound: Sounds like some guy was barricaded in his house and shot at officers trying to gain entrance. Not like he was walking around shooting coeds or anything.


So the important thing is, nobody pretty got shot?

You should be tapped to deliver the news to the shooting victims.

detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: What the heck is going on lately? Is the the death heat?


Fartbongo has unleashed his army of evil henchmen to shoot up the nation to create such an air of fear and uncertainty that he'll have no choice but to declare martial law, suspend the elections, grab our guns and invite the UN peacekeepers in to restore order.

Do you guys have a source for this? Cause if it was just some drug dealer not wanting to get busted, I've got a big bag of "meh" for you.

Coelacanth: Brandon Wheeland @BrandonWheeland
Please fact check everyone. It's not on campus. There are no confirmed dead. Please stop trying to "break news" Be right, not first.



Evidently it's "on campus" that Texas A&M sent out a security warning to it's students. In college towns the "official" campus and off campus bleed so deeply into each other that the distinction is negligible. And as far as I know no one is yet claiming that there are confirmed dead, only that there are victims accounted for.

RexTalionis: According to the Atlantic, 6 people were shot, including 2 officers. The shooter was apparently firing from a building with automatic weapons.


Oswald or Whitman style?

Snark aside, this bullshiat is getting old. And depressing. WTF is going on in this country? I'm not old enough to have a lawn yet, or to tell people to get off it, but I don't remember this many mass shootings clumped up like this when I was younger.

meat0918: Seems like we need to reinvest in America's mental health facilities.


I truly believe that would go a long way to helping. Seriously. Sick people who can get access to medication, doctors, therapy, or even in-patient care, are less likely to do shiat like this.

Giltric: Texas, automatic weapon, barricaded in a house.

Were the cops serving a warrant on a violent offender or cartel member?

Wonder if it's one of those weapons that people didn't bother tracking from Holders Fast and Furious program.


It's an important question, those are the only guns known to kill people.

It's like missing white girl syndrome but for firearms crimes during an election cycle.

Notice it's usually the crazy white guy who gets all the coverage but not the black gangbanger who rapes and shoots a 90 year old woman?


Let me guess, you've pointed out repeatedly to others that George Zimmerman is part Hispanic, right?

Those gosh-darned biased media and their obsession with crazy white people who kill 13 or more at a time, tsk tsk.

Someone could pistol whip another person to death. Or beat them with the butt of a shotgun. Bullets just increase the efficiency.

mjohnson71: This is not the time for debate about gun control.


And once we've calmed down from yet ANOTHER mass shooting, it will somehow still not be the time for debate according to the NRA. Funny that.

If a single person (or Internet Tough Guy or Tactical Typist) with a concealed weapon had just been there, things might have turned out differently.

Elzar: God dammit - Obama is going to take our guns for sure. The only way to prevent this is to mandate all college students carry weapons.

/ Hoping our new republican dream team can somehow make this so



REQUIRE that all gun owners pass three tests:
- weapon proficiency (being able to hit the target)
- gun safety
- psychological stability

Then I have no problem with arming the general population (those who pass all three tests)..

tallen702: Yeah.... right.... because automatic weapons are so inexpensive and any criminal can get their hands on them right?


There's mod kits for semi-automatic rifles. Some of them are as cheap as a piece of stamped metal.

Then again, it could be how journalists conflate all weapons with either a Glock or an AK-47.

I think we should start by banning clock towers.
 
2012-08-13 02:54:58 PM  
The amusing thing here is the way that guns and politics are being blamed for spree shootings.

Spree shootings are caused by a lack of personal restraint. In some cases, such as Charles Whitmore, the fellow was suffering from madness with an organic cause ie a brain tumour. He left diaries and letters that showed jumbled and irrational thoughts.

But in nearly all cases, this lack of personal restraint comes from the breakdown of society.

1. If suicide is no longer a sin,
2. If public disobedience and and defiance against authority are glorified,
3. If fame or celebrity is rewarded without merit,
4. If Right and Wrong are no longer absolute,
5. If erratic behaviour is no longer shameful,
6. If internal or self justification is held as a virtue,

-- then it will all continue along this path until society completely collapses, and a new order reforms from the ashes

I'd just like to point out, this may be the first example in Fark.com history where the Fark.com headline was actually more honest.

Funny, I seem to recall a lot of media attention on Lee Malvo and John Mohammed, the beltway snipers (two black guys).

"your husband was shot in the line of duty, ma'am. He's gonna get an all expense paid trip to the best hospital in town and then a medal and 6-12 months off full pay." That should about cover it.

Unconfirmed speculation regarding an event for which few meaningful details have been released justified imposition of new gun control laws such as a 1000% taxation on ammunition purchases and prohibiting civilian ownership of a very rarely criminally class of firearms by arbitrarily classifying them as "assault weapons". Additionally, this vaguely reported incident justifies claiming that shootings are becoming commonplace despite violent crime rates in recent years being substantially lower than violent crime rates twenty years ago.

Show us the "black gangbanger" who injures or kills 70 grandmas in a shooting spree, you pathetic, racist piece of shiat.


He don't never put a piece on a civilian or someone who weren't in the game, you feel me?
