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.

I hate how ordinary these stories are becoming, very sad.

Uh oh.

Not this shiat again.
 
2012-08-13 02:46:09 PM  
What the heck is going on lately? Is the the death heat?
 
2012-08-13 02:46:13 PM  
It's simple: time to start arming cops.
 
2012-08-13 02:46:25 PM  
Seems like we need to reinvest in America's mental health facilities.

New rule for mass shooters. Death penalty administered by being doused in gasoline and set on fire.
 
2012-08-13 02:47:25 PM  
Don't worry. The government won't start taking our guns away until rich people start getting and killed by poor people.
 
2012-08-13 02:47:28 PM  
Don't worry, politicians will know what to do.

I think we could do with a little toning down of the political rhetoric as well.

What do you think Texas A&M is?

That's quite vague so far.

This is not the time for debate about gun control.
 
2012-08-13 02:48:11 PM  
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.

WE REALLY LOVE GUNS

"The university issued an alert on its website just before 12:30 p.m. Monday warning of an active shooter..."

As opposed to a lazy and sedentary shooter?
 
2012-08-13 02:48:23 PM  
Finally, an opportunity for the gun grabbers and gun nuts to have a go at one another. I was so tired of waiting.
 
2012-08-13 02:48:27 PM  
Stop doing this.

But it IS time to debate whether people should be allowed to wear costumes on campus.

2012-08-13 02:49:20 PM  
Neither CNN or MSNBC are even covering it. Apparently mass shootings are so common they're not even newsworthy now.
 
2012-08-13 02:49:25 PM  
Times don't make sense.
 
2012-08-13 02:49:31 PM  
The shooter was definitely not another angry white person with mental stability issues.

/do not jump to conclusions

2012-08-13 02:50:05 PM  
Look, if there was ever an opportunity for a story about an armed student taking care of the nutjob in a flash, it's Texas A&M. Please please please.

Dr_luckyz: I hate how ordinary these stories are becoming, very sad.


Well a lot of these nutjobs are probably fame craving narcissists.

After the amount of attention given to that first guy, you know how it was constantly on the news all the time for about a whole week and everybody on the internet was talking about it all the time to the point that the queen of England was talking about it during the olympics!

Here is an idea, let's stop making these nuts world famous every time they do this shiat, then there might not be as many incidences.

These means STOP TALKING ABOUT IT ON THE INTERNET AND IF YOU SEE IT ON TV CHANGE THE CHANNEL AND IF YOU HAVE A HAND IN ACTUALLY CONTROLLING THE MEDIA PICK SOMETHING MORE WORTHWHILE TO TALK ABOUT.

Yeah it is senseless and a tragic spectacle, but the reality is that more than 30,000 people die every day, and that first story never should have gotten as much attention as it did. Maybe if it hadn't, these other shootings would not have occurred.

Dr_luckyz: I hate how ordinary these stories are becoming, very sad.


This. So this is the future?

Remember reading a study done on rats kept in a overcrowded enclosure that they then subjected to adverse conditions. (too hot, too cold, not enough food/water) It didn't take long at all for the rats to turn on each other...

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

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


With these mass shootings occurring weekly, this unwritten rule is making it very difficult to find a time when it is appropriate.

I think we had a window there for about four minutes Sunday morning at 3:32 a.m. Oh well.
 
2012-08-13 02:50:25 PM  
I'll be glad when December 21 2012 comes and the world ends, so we don't have to listen to all this crazy shiat ever again.

/Mental illness is such a bad thing.
 
2012-08-13 02:50:34 PM  
This violence won't stop until everyone has a gun. Then things will be quiet and peaceful.
 
2012-08-13 02:50:38 PM  
Oh it's Texas, so I'm confident that heroic responsible gun owners saved the day.

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


"Automatic weapons?" That seems pretty unlikely. Probably an earwitness who doesn't know the difference.

If you are caught in the act, i don't have a problem with this.

Dayum, even the buildings are armed in Texas?

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


This is true. I've been waiting for a lull in gun violence so it is the time to debate gun control. Of course, I've been waiting for many many years but I'm sure that lull will come.
 
2012-08-13 02:50:57 PM  
Being that it was apparently a block or so from campus, I'm thinking drug related. but seeing as the article was extremely vague, and no confirmation to be found (so far), who knows?
 
2012-08-13 02:50:59 PM  
A different thread linked to the emergency.tamu.edu page showing that A&M issued a Code Maroon due to Maroon Number Two's shooting.

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.

I work with a "pacifist" conspiracy nut that bought a a few guns after Obama was elected.

I worry that he will come in here and shoot our resident socialist, and then takes out a few of us that don't subscribe to his anti-Semitic rants about demonic, alien controlled Jews.
