Gun control - when you're at a mall and you see a shooter, pull out your legally concealed firearm, and put two slugs into the shooters chest.

Mall shootings are so over.
 
2012-12-11 07:55:34 PM  
I went to my local mall just today. I have a CHP but this mall specifically states "No weapons or firearms allowed, concealed or otherwise."
Makes me think twice about shopping there.

Criminals and not jobs don't care about signs.

I don't care how I die, so long as "I'm stuck in the back room of build a bear!" are not my last words to the world.


Better than being stuck with Bubba the bear who is trying to enter your "back room".

Mrbogey: clancifer: Is it too early to talk about responsible gun legislation?

America has some of the most sensible gun laws in the world. We target behavior for prohibition and not wholesale elimination. Should we really try and mimic nations with more violent crime like Mexico and the United Kingdom by enacting harsher laws?

America has a crime problem because we have a crime culture.

Because you'd totally engage a shooter and take him out, right?

some_beer_drinker: for the love of god, please take the guns away from Americans, they are far too irresponsible.


We actually have laws against criminals, kids and crazy people having guns. It's almost as if people who are out to commit murder don't care about breaking the gun laws. Weird.

/waiting to see if this is drug/gang related
//yes, even in Portland.

So your argument is since we have such a crime culture that we might as well make sure they are properly armed.

/Apologies to the families of the lost and/or wounded.

I keep hearing assault rifle, nothing more specific yet. Reporter just said AR15.

Considering the accuracy rate of the local media, that means it was likely an Airsoft pistol.


One person is confirmed dead.


How does that change the general inaccuracy of reporters with regards to firearms, especially around breaking news?

That's not helpful. It took place in the food court. The shooter could have been using any one of these products, possibly in combination.

It was several witnesses that described the gun.  The reporters were just passing on what the witnesses said.

Not at all. Can we have a rider that bans murder?

beerbaron: Exactly how would you enforce this? House to house searches?


He said "responsible gun legislation," not "confiscation of any and all firearms"

No, my argument is that people who want to ban guns aren't able to comprehend how silly their arguments are due to the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

We have a prohibition on arming criminals in America. We make sure non-criminals can arm themselves.

meh, "And I am sure that I never read any memorable news in a newspaper. If we read of one man robbed, or murdered, or killed by accident, or one house burned, or one vessel wrecked, or one steamboat blown up, or one cow run over on the Western Railroad, or one mad dog killed, or one lot of grasshoppers in the winter - we never need read of another. One is enough. If you are acquainted with the principle, what do you care for a myriad instances and applications? To a philosopher all news, as it is called, is gossip, and they who edit and read it are old women over their tea." -Thoreau

I wonder why nobody who is actually involved in a mass shooting has never done this before. With the number of times it's been suggested, if it's a plausible assertion you'd think it would have happened at least once.

There have been several instances where people do. (Frequently it doesn't become news because once the second guy pulls a gun the would-be criminal decides to go elsewhere and leaves suddenly without shooting anyone.)

Funny thing that.

Also the discarded magazine found on the floor. That was from the earliest reports.

And when I actually see pictures of the firearm, I'll see if that's correct. Until then, I'm going to wait for actual confirmed facts. Too much derp occurs right after these things.

I'd guess it wasn't Kevlar but more likely a tactical vest, like the Colorado movie shooter.

Japan: A culture that when a disaster struck and many were left homeless and hungry there was little crime and virtually no looting.

America: A 20% sale will cause people to stomp octogenarians to death and then sue the store for making them do it.
