I'm just curious how many the cops killed.
 
2012-08-31 07:34:34 AM
My PathmRk by me closed down for good. It's good to know this one opens at 6a.m. Weekdays.


/another shooting to close to home. My wifes office is a half mile away

I don't think shootouts count as a mass shooting. When I think of a mass shooting, I think of a guy with a gun who goes to some unassuming place and just starts shooting people at random (or maybe not random, if it was some sort of office rage thing.)

This could be a botched robbery or some sort of argument that got out of hand. Then again, someone could have decided at 4:00 am to just start shooting people stocking shelves at Pathmark.

Either way, I think we need to differentiate these situations.

Ok, this says a disgruntled worker shot two people and then killed himself. I don't think two counts as a mass shooting,

I tell ya, that graveyard shift really does things to your head.

Only three dead? Damn, if only he shot a few more then we could have another media panic on our hands.

As it is, it seems like incidents that would normally only be regional stories are getting national exposure, thus making the debate on gun control more prominent this election. Is there some sort of nefarious purpose behind it? Probably not: The news organizations are sheep that tend to follow what the others are doing, hence we get crap like the "Summer of the Shark", and the like.

this is like the mass die-off hysteria last year, remember that? you know, the shiat that happens every day that for some reason becomes an epidemic when people realize they just haven't been paying attention. don't worry, you'll get used to it and go back to not caring.

At 4AM? At least wait until people have had their coffee!

Hey guys, let's turn this into a gun thread! It's totally not about inadequate mental health care and support for the kids we sent to the desert to shoot at people for 15-20% of their lives! It's about access to firearms!

As more of the military comes back from overseas, we're going to see this happen more and more. But since the VA is soshulism according to the people in control of the budget, I seriously doubt we will see improvements to mental health care until they are flushed out of the system like the little shiats they are.
 
2012-08-31 09:14:33 AM
Sweet! I'm sure this was a bad deal for those who were hurt and/or killed, but from my perspective Fridays are always kind of slow and so I'm glad that there will be a shooting thread to follow during the day. Always an entertaining way to cap off the week!

NJ supermarket? Did somebody tell Chris Christie he couldn't have ho-ho's again?
 
2012-08-31 09:18:46 AM
Look, I'm just saying those "10 items or less" signs are there for a reason.

Mainly, to annoy grammar Nazis who think it should be "10 items or fewer."

You are addressing an individual who believes justified self-defense to be murder in all cases where an assailant dies. Do not expect rational discourse.

It's going to take dozens and dozens more of these shootings before anyone has the balls to start challenging the NRA's lobbying power and influence.

This makes me sick. As does each shooting.

If only the cashiers had been packing heat, none of this would have happened. Also, some tax cuts couldn't hurt.

Especially since any debate about "gun control" is a joke right now. There is no real debate. The Second Amendment allows only the most minimal and non-intrusive of firearms legislation, and the courts have so ruled. It's a dead issue, unless you are looking to stimulate gun and ammo sales with fear tactics.

If dipshiats will slow down on the highway to look at a fender bender, I think yet another shooting like this deserves attention.

Only two? Think of how many the shooter could have bagged if he'd had access to an ammunition belt!

It isn't going to change. That war is over, we lost, and the price we will pay for the right of self-righteous honkeys to own military grade weaponry and armor piercing bullets is that sometimes one of them will get all shooty.
 
2012-08-31 09:24:26 AM
I particularly liked this part...

A law enforcement source familiar with the investigation said the suspect got into an argument with co-workers at the store Friday morning, then went out to his car and returned a short time later, dressed in camouflage and carrying weapons.

Employees saw what he was doing and locked the door, the source said, but the gunman shot out the windows and went inside, killing two people. He then killed himself.

He probably wasn't even supposed to be there today.

I wouln't call killing two people and then yourself a "mass shooting." I'd call that New Jersey.

We really need to more strictly enforce pornography laws. And pass that constitutional amendment to end gay marriage.
