If you're trying to kill somebody, the last place I'd do it is in a hospital.

Is it wrong that I was thinking that Dec. 21st is why the crazy is coming out of the woodwork recently. Not that I think anything will come of it but these assholes might.

Obviously the solution is to allow invalid hospital patients to carry firearms, right republicans?

All this reminds of a series of school attacks that took place in China over a year and a half time frame, shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_attacks_in_China_(2010%E2%80%93201 1)

You'll notice 21 dead, 90 injured after a series of school attacks across China. Even more interesting - no guns were used. Only knives, hammers and cleavers. So how far will outlawing guns really go towards stopping anything?

Generation_D: Happy 221st Birthday Second Amendment. God Bless well-regulated militias everywhere.

You know, the bill of rights is just a piece of paper. If enough of us think gun ownership is too stupid to handle, with too many negative consequences, for too many people, we could amend it. Been done before.


So do it and quit acting like the NRA or gun-rights people are the obstacle. If you have the numbers, you get it passed. It's that simple.

Funny you say that as the gunman attacked a place where he wasn't the only armed person and look how it turned out.

Yeah, funny how it was a policeman who took him out, not some dumbass civilian.

If a civilian took him out, would they still be a dumbass civilian?

Yes. Because who knows who else he would've shot.


Because cops have better aim? Is that what you're trying say?

Someone slept through this year.

Headline says it's a copycat, and describes it like one, but in this case there was a guy with a gun who WASN'T shooting. They called the cops, who had time to get there and approach him. THAT'S when the shooting started. Doesn't sound much like the nut job killing a mess of little kids in an elementary school.

You might have missed the point. He still tried to harm or kill them. Doesn't matter what he did it with. There was something intrinsically WRONG with the farker. Wrong with HIM.

It doesn't mean all people who own knives are going to try stabbing a bunch of children.

You cannot punish the whole of society because there are crazies in the world. That just doesn't make any sense.

Funny you say that as the gunman attacked a place where he wasn't the only armed person and look how it turned out.

Please, please tell me this isn't meant to be an argument that the carnage was limited because of other armed people that prevented it. If so, it'd be pretty clear that you didn't bother to RTFA before commenting.

FTFA: After the shooting, the suspect immediately put down the gun and surrendered to hospital security


Funny, I don't see that in the article at all. The guy didn't open fire until police confronted him.

This is an open-shut case - suicide by cop.

Just leave it alone...they are in heaven...every single one of these makes them salivate even more. Just let them enjoy it...its what theyve always wanted...people to die so they can ban something they are scared of.

Banning guns isnt going to stop muggers, rapists, home invaders, robbery, assault and the vast majority of all other crime...and they know it...but getting those scary guns taken away will make them feel safe, for a little while. Until a friend, family member, or even them personally is a victim of crime...then they will have something new to scream about.

But for now...just let them rant and rave and have their happiness.

And? There are plenty of examples of just such a thing (China, stabbing, school children) were quite a few did die. For some who did get stabbed, perhaps they would've preferred death to living. That's not being snarky - I'm being honest. Did anyone get paralyzed, brain trauma, etc? At what point is life preferred to death? I know that's not the issue, but my point stands - any weapon can be used in such heinous activities. Gun, non-gun, whichever.

phenn: You cannot punish the whole of society because there are crazies in the world. That just doesn't make any sense.



SURE YOU CAN. Have you noticed a change in security at airports since 9/11? Compare our DUI laws now with 50 years ago. If the @sshole in Newtown yesterday had a knife instead of two guns, he would not have killed 26 people. And the ability for one nutjob with zero military training to walk into a building and murder 26 people, only stopping to kill himself when he was basically done doing what he wanted to do, is not what the authors of the 2nd Amendment had in mind, mainly because that wasn't technologically possible at the time.

I have a hard time seeing how keeping you owning a limited number of weapons and having you go through extensive training/psych checks to own said weapons is "punishment." It's actually called "be a responsible member of society."

And this is precisely why I see gun ownership as a selfish act. You feel safer and yet endanger the lives of unknown innocents.
