Popcorn Johnny: Pharacyde: 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.Because you'd totally engage a shooter and take him out, right?
GAT_00: ronaprhys: Face it - you've got nothing to stand on here.Yeah, mass murder is nothing worth stopping.[thismodernworld.com image 720x672] Freedom means innocents die for no farking reason. Gotta love the NRA.
beta_plus: beerbaron: clancifer: Is it too early to talk about responsible gun legislation?Exactly how would you enforce this? House to house searches?Hey man, at this point liberals want responsible free speech legislation after that hateful youtube video caused the people of benghazi to spontaneously murder our Ambassador by shelling him with mortars they just happened to be carrying around.
Kuroshin: Okay, outline a plan to remove firearms from the criminal populace.
Kuroshin: CraicBaby: All descriptions I've read so far say the shooter was wearing a white mask of some sort.Whitemask? Racist!
ronaprhys: Seriously - you fail.
moops: Ah, Clackamas Town Center. The "Town Center" is a mall. There's an Olive Garden and everything.
epyonyx: NewportBarGuy: Was it a Glock or an AK-47?/Apologies to the families of the lost and/or wounded.[journalists guide.jpg]/oblig
cameroncrazy1984: Lt. Cheese Weasel: someonelse: Lt. Cheese Weasel: clancifer: Is it too early to talk about responsible gun legislation?Of course the relevant issue isn't whether violent criminals obey the law, but whether gun retailers do. But keep dancing with your straw man.Right, so punish the lawful, ignore the lawless and you have a very nice cardboard box to bloviate more nonesense in the town square.Question: how many mass shootings are caused by illegal guns?
CraicBaby: Shooter is dead.
CrackpipeCardozo: How much you want to bet there was more than one person carrying their concealed weapon this afternoon at the mall? Hell, I'd wager to guess that there were 2+ firearms in the Aurora theater that night in July, but nobody rose up and saved the day. Loudmouthed gun owners are hands down some of the biggest pussies I know
Bathia_Mapes: Kuroshin: CraicBaby: All descriptions I've read so far say the shooter was wearing a white mask of some sort.Whitemask? Racist!Some reports said it was a hockey mask
cameroncrazy1984: Great Janitor: 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.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.
CraicBaby: Only 2 confirmed dead (not including shooter) so far. Dude wasn't a very good shot.
GAT_00: And there's the standard NRA return volley - fix everything immediately, or else nothing should ever change.
CrackpipeCardozo: Kuroshin: Okay, outline a plan to remove firearms from the criminal populace.Here's the problem with this line of thinking: James Holmes (to the best of my knowledge) did not become a criminal UNTIL he used his legally purchased firearms to shoot up a room full of moviegoers.
Insatiable Jesus: I think somebody got mad because their President is black.
EatenTheSun: cameroncrazy1984: Great Janitor: 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.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.Or maybe it's just because you don't hear about it. Link"At about 1 p.m. MST (20:00 UTC), 30 minutes after the 11 a.m. service had ended at New Life Church, Murray opened fire in the church parking lot shooting the Works family and Judy Purcell, 40. Murray then entered the building's main foyer where he shot Larry Bourbonnais, 59, hitting him in the forearm. At this point, Assam opened fire on Murray with her personally owned concealed weapon. Police say that after suffering multiple hits from Assam's gun, Murray fatally shot himself."
Silly Jesus: Who cares? Two people just died in a car accident two cities away from me. Should I submit that with a BREAKING NEWS!!!!!ONE111!!! tag?
vygramul: CraicBaby: Only 2 confirmed dead (not including shooter) so far. Dude wasn't a very good shot.Most of these assholes aren't. Or they use sub-optimal weapons and accessories.
CraicBaby: He supposedly fired at least 60 rounds, too. So yeah, probably a combination of inexperience, shiatty weaponry & shiatty accessories.
knowless: Not surprised, hope i didn't know the shooter. You all remember that Oregon basically started the school shooting trend right? Kips still in lockup.
vygramul: Report that his gun jammed.Prediction: if he used an assault rifle, and it jammed, the magazine was large-capacity.
Englebert Slaptyback: mall ... in the Portland suburb of ClackamasI believe Douglas Coupland called it the "Clackamas County Mall" in Generation X.
