LineNoise: most of the injuries being people caught in the gunfight with cops.


No, that can't be right, because an armed person responding to a crazed gunman will calmly and efficiently subdue the killer with one well-placed head shot, at least according to last month's issue of Internet Hero Fantasy Jerkoff Magazine.

heypete: willyfreddy: The US has way too many guns. And your crime rate is absolutely insane. I live in Canada, with a population of roughly 30 million, and we had 173 gun homicides in 2011. You live in the US, with a population of roughly 300 million (10x Canada), and you had 9146 gun homicides in 2011 (52x Canada)

You're right about the crime rate: the US has a crime rate that is disproportionally higher than the gun ownership rate, compared to Canada. According to the Wikipedia, Canada was the #13 country in the world for number of guns per hundred residents at 30.8. The US had 88.8, which is 2.8 times higher yet has, as you pointed out, a gun-related firearm homicide rate of 52x that of the Canada.

Switzerland has 45.7 guns per 100 residents (many of them full-automatic military rifles issued to their soldiers -- military service is mandatory and citizens keep their issued rifles and ammo at home) and violent crime rate is also very low compared to the US.

I would posit that the problem is people, not guns. What about Canada and Switzerland (and their respective populations) is different in regards to causes of violent crime? Both have good social safety nets and decent mental health care systems. That'd probably be a pretty good place to start on improving stuff in the US.


Its the cold weather. It makes us Canadians sluggish and not want to go outside and shoot people.

Forced Perspective: Oddly enough, The Onion published this article yesterday (16 hours ago): http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-celebrates-full-week-without-d eadly-mass-sh,29293/

NEW YORK-Cheers filled the streets and American flags waved triumphantly through the air today as the nation turned out in full force to celebrate an entire week having passed since the last time a madman opened fire on innocent civilians in some kind of fatal mass shooting. "We did it, folks! We banded together and managed to go seven whole days without killing our fellow Americans in a senseless murdering spree!" Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said in a speech to jubilant throngs gathered in Times Square. "Yes, some people were shot this week, but not in a random, highly public, viscerally disturbing way and-most importantly-not all in one place, by one psychopath. Maybe one day we can live in a society where abominable large-scale gun violence stays out of the national headlines for a whole month even!" At press time, federal authorities had issued a reminder to all Americans that a lot can happen in 24 hours, "so let's not get too excited yet.

I don't want to politicize this tragedy, but I think people are missing the real cause of this. So far we're basing our opinions on rumor and early reports. 4 - 8 victims, shooting by a disgruntled worker, shooter was female.

Now my personal politics aside, I think it's pretty clear that a major contributing factor was that the shooter was not in the kitchen. Had this woman known her place, and been making sandwiches, this NEVER happens.

You can all cry "foul" and get in a huff, but Todd Akin touched on a good point: a woman's body does shut down during traumatic events, and women are emotionally fragile, so many events are traumatic for them. If you're married or dating a woman, tell her she's fat. That's all. Watch then as she freezes in confusion in front of you. She's shut down. Now try to have sex with her. Impossible, and therefor no pregnancy. Over something very minute.

Now this woman was allegedly fired from her job. But we don't know that for certain. Maybe she doesn't fit into her jeans anymore. Maybe she's upset after a sad episode of Dr. Phil. I'm not saying "I know what her motives are", only that she can't kill people at the empire state building if she's in the kitchen.

JerseyTim: Good news, everyone. The Hipster Cop is on the scene:

He'll take care of everything.


He probably has the best info, seeing as he was there before the shooting made the news.

Carth: LineNoise: Local reports are saying it wasn't AT the ESB, just across the street, and appears to have been a targeted hit type thing, and most of the injuries being people caught in the gunfight with cops.

You mean a firefight with an armed gunman can result in innocent bystanders getting shot? I don't believe it.


Clearly the result of poor gun control.

I think we can all agree that shooting random, innocent people is rude. Just say "excuse me" next time a group of people are in your way.

Wyldfire: Were they so excited they forgot to add "least" to the headline?


Well, they do have to beat out the other news feeds by 1.4 seconds because it's important to .. them.

Well, considering that all the news reports are beginning to show that this was a dispute between two co-workers that spilled out into the street, followed by one of the co-workers pulling out a gun and starting to shoot at the other guy (and in the process hitting innocent bystanders), I'm more worried about people like you who would have a gun in the first place.

I'm a cop genius. I am required to carry on and off-duty.

Had to have been a cop. Only cops are allowed to have guns in NYC.

That's some tip-top proof-reading there, CNN.

At 10 shot at Empire State Building, authorities say

"least" is the word you're looking for - which you should know a lot about, since it exists everywhere in your quality and effort division.

I wonder how long before Bloomberg wants to ban not only all firearms possession, but hollow plastic tubes longer than 5 inches (aka straws) just in case.

NeoBad: Suddenly have two thoughts. One is that the 1300 price tag of that small Kimber 45 ACP may not be so bad. Two is to go stock up on Ammo for my 9 mm.


UGH, please not a 1911 variant. 8+1 is a pretty paltry capacity nowadays.

Though, I suppose, once you're out of ammo, you can always throw the super carry pro at the bad guys. makes a pretty good blunt force instrument.

blur612: Conspiracy angle: Exactly 4,000 days since 9/11/01.

Coincidence?


And only 118 days until the apocalypse. Plus only 4,031 days until the ULTRA-apocalypse. Coincidence? I think not.

Oddly enough, The Onion published this article yesterday (16 hours ago): http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-celebrates-full-week-without-d eadly-mass-sh,29293/

NEW YORK-Cheers filled the streets and American flags waved triumphantly through the air today as the nation turned out in full force to celebrate an entire week having passed since the last time a madman opened fire on innocent civilians in some kind of fatal mass shooting. "We did it, folks! We banded together and managed to go seven whole days without killing our fellow Americans in a senseless murdering spree!" Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said in a speech to jubilant throngs gathered in Times Square. "Yes, some people were shot this week, but not in a random, highly public, viscerally disturbing way and-most importantly-not all in one place, by one psychopath. Maybe one day we can live in a society where abominable large-scale gun violence stays out of the national headlines for a whole month even!" At press time, federal authorities had issued a reminder to all Americans that a lot can happen in 24 hours, "so let's not get too excited yet.

Quickest funny aneurysm moment in history?

Mass casualty shootings happen every day in the inner cities

It's just that people only pay attention to or care about the ones that involve white people or middle class or higher people.
