Apparently in Oklahoma they illicitly sneak god into their schools thereby avoiding school shootings.

doglover: tenpoundsofcheese: I remember fark was doing this about one of the recent lunatics, but I don't think it caught on.

Because they used a crappy nickname.

If they'd have sat down and used a catchy one, it would have caught on.


TOT BOMB.

Just curious: can someone link me to a story where a shooter (or potential shooter) was taken down by an armed civilian? Cops don't count.

kombi: What about the story yesterday? I think it was 13 kids killed in Japan or China with a sword?

BAN ALL SHARP METAL.. Think of the children.


China. They were injured, not killed...so not really helping the pro-gun argument.

Why do you 2nd ammendment lovers always forget about the "well-regulated militia" part? Do you understand that the Constitution was written at a time when the country did not have a standing army and citizens would be called upon to defend the country if necessary?

We have a well-regulated militia to protect us; it's called the army. Feel free to volunteer anytime.

Beatings.

Kids are not allowed to fight (fists) any more. So they never learn how far is too far. And they never learn respect for their peers or for adults. How do you learn not to hurt others if you've never experienced the pain or humiliation of having your ass rightfully kicked? (I'm not talking about beating your kids, mind you.)

Plus getting your nose broken or grappling during recess is a good release of aggression. Sparring is a natural part of growing up.

What life lessons are learned by having an iPhone confiscated?


This. It's easy to tell kids that violence is never the answer- it isn't- but I think you learn that lesson a lot more easily/permanently if you occasionally experience it as a kid. One of the consequences of making mistakes is pain- physical, mental, whatever. Better to become acquainted with the concept early on, to lessen the shock of it later. At some point in their precious little lives, kids are going to hit a rock wall at which point they will realize that life sometimes isn't much fun. The more ready for that moment they are, the less likely for them to react irrationally or destructively, to themselves or others. Also, a little fear is a healthy thing. Without the numerous trappings of modern western society, the world is a hard and dangerous place that should be feared and respected, and you never know when you're going to find yourself in an uncomfortable, unstable, or outright dangerous situation.

kombi: WhippingBoy: All I know is that it's my God given right as an American to teach my emotionally disturbed, autistic son how to shoot, reload and shoot again, and to surround him with various types and makes of guns, all the while fetishizing these same guns.

/America, fark yeah!
Thats my point. Im a mechanic. You dont know how many times I have gotten in a car to move or repair them and there are guns crammed between the seats or ammo rolling around on the floor in the cup holders and the door panels. And then a car seat in the back. People owning a gun is a right but for god sakes lock them up and be responsible.


But if I lock them up, how can I display them to all and sundry?

The best thing is that the mini-mall where I buy my ammunition also has a pharmacy where I get my son's anti-psychotic prescriptions filled. Talk about your one stop shopping!

doglover: rappy: Arming citizens is the dumbest idea anyone ever had. People are too f*cking dumb to handle that kind of power and responsibility.

I agree. As soon as I get power, first thing to go is people's weapons. Then, I'mma start takin' their stuff. Jewelry, money, kids, it don't matter. What the king wants, the king shall have.


I want the dogs and the cars.

Sirveaux: kombi: ok a knife. cant find the link to the story

You mean this one?

The one where 22 people were injured and not killed?


Because it's A-OK to slash kids with a knife. No permanent physical or mental damage could possibly be inflicted by such an act.

Your argument holds as much water as a pitcher made of chicken wire.

Huckabee's Jesus is like a vampire: he must be invited in first. Once he's in, he's all powerful. Or something.

Coco LaFemme: When diseases are in epidemic/pandemic mode, we come with a vaccine. What's the vaccine for this shiat?


Higher taxes on the wealthy to pay for health care? Especially mental health care...

Seriously though, a society based upon competition, where the rules are truly balanced towards those with resources
will create a never ending stream of similar monsters who feel they can't compete

I'm sure he was planning to launch the attack with kitchen knives and Louisville sluggers, since they're just as deadly as semi-automatic guns.

FTA: "Chavez was already practicing with a Colt .45"

I guess I stand corrected again. What a crazy coincidence that easily concealable firearms with 7+ round magazines that can be reloaded in seconds keep popping-up as the weapon of choice for mass-murderers. We should spend another 50 years studying this to see if we can figure out how these killers operate.
