but one of them helped a psychopath murder them

Are you able now to see the common thread in this. You just agreed with the opinion you were trying to counter. It's not the gun, it's the "psychopath" that's the problem. Look at my comments above about the accidental fires and even further above citing the intentional homicides in Korea and Japan that were much, much worse than these shootings.

It's not the guns, it's the crazy person wielding them!!

Yes! And the gun-nut party does everything they can to be sure that psychopaths get those guns. Any effort to prevent psychopaths from getting guns is met with cries of "COMMIE!!!" and "Why do you hate America?" and "Obama is comin' fer our guns!!!" and "\HOW WE STOP COMMIE OBAMA IF'N WE AIN'T GOT OUR GUNS???"


You seem to have missed the gun owner side of the equation being all for increased NICS background check strength and a host of improvements to mental health care and so forth, things that would actually go further to preventing this than gun bans. So, plonk with you

DubtodaIll: I've never really understood the fear of guns. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I had a friend in school who was completely anti-gun. He wanted to do drastic things like invent a time machine and go un-invent the gun and stuff like that or whatever. Anyway, we convinced him to go to a gun range with us and actually fire a weapon, as he had never actually used a gun before. He loved it, he had so much fun in fact, he now does recreational pistol shooting in a league and stuff.
Anyway, I just feel like most of the people railing against guns have never actually used one to learn how freaking amazing they are. Though I do feel a return to swords and hand to hand combat would do wonders for civil society.


Heh...my old roommate was like that. He was scared of them. But he kept talking to me about it and eventually wanted to try it out. So i took him to a range and shot some rounds out of a nine. After his very first shot he was hooked. It was kind of funny because he was a bit disappointed though. I guess he expected this thunderous boom and to be knocked on his ass. I told him that if he really wants to go redneck i could get a 10-gauge and we could have some fun...

More likely than a good citizen with a gun taking out a random shooter or assassin before he can do heavy damage, I think we'll see a story in some area with a lot of conceal carry where 3 people try to play heroes, all end up shooting each other out of their confusion and inability to process the situation beyond thinking "this is it, this is my moment to prove why I've been doing this!" and then the actual gunman gets away.

Naturally the loss of life would be sad, but it'd be one of the more productive losses of life in terms of proving points.

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.

The shooter is "neutralized" according the local police. That's an awesome phrase.

Reminder: Pray for Omarion.

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.

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


Gun legislation only affects people who procure the weapons through legal channels--most criminals don't buy their weapon at the local gun shop.
