Dimensio: Paul Baumer: Fark It: Still waiting for an example of compromise from the gun control side...Gave you one upthread. Magazine limitations, recurring licensing, mandatory recurring health checks, mandatory home safety measures, mandatory re-qualification and ongoing training, all licensed firearms must be produced for inspection on a recurring basis. Close gun show loophole.What would firearm owners receive in return?
CarnySaur: I'm surprised he didn't use a baseball analogy.
please: The record for a school killing was in 1927, at 45 kids. And it wasn't a mass shooting.You think removing the mechanism will stop the psychopaths - the psychopaths will just choose another mechanism.
mab1823: 1. Assault weapons ban. I really don't care what excuses people have. There is zero reason for the average American to own weapons that can be converted to fully automatic or have massive magazines/clips.
orclover: Tranquilizing everybody would be the safest and kindest mercy you could show for the entire country. A mentally healthy and lulled populace would be the single most peaceful entity this world has ever seen. Violence, rape, suicide, all would be almost completely gone. Depression? Gone. It would be a farking utopia and it should be done to us at gun point, hell, at nuke point if need be.
Friction8r: Liberals have murdered far more children with their ridiculous abortions than guns ever have. Keep your sickening abortion laws, and we'll keep our guns. See you on Judgment Day.
Fark It: I'll ask again, since no one has really given me an answer.Gun control advocates consistently argue for compromise when they ask for discussion. For those of you who are asking for discussion and compromise, who aren't calling for pie-in-the-sky schemes and painting all gun owners with the same NRA tea party conservative brush, I ask this:What are gun control advocates willing to put on the table when it comes to this compromise we hear all the time?
Outrageous Muff: poor mental health treatment
Pokey.Clyde: Empty Matchbook: A law that made mental health facilities more affordable/accessible than an assault rifle?He DID NOT HAVE AN ASSAULT RIFLE. The Bushmaster rifle he had is not an assault rifle.You know what? Fark it, I'm out. This thread is too full of stupid. People who don't know what they are talking about, trying to pass off their uninformed opinions as fact.
Outrageous Muff: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: How many dead?So you're saying it's not as big of deal if(or not enough) people didn't die?
rohar: PartTimeBuddha: cameroncrazy1984: Tell that to the UK, a country that hasn't had a mass shooting since Dunblane, after which they enacted the 1997 Firearms act.Exactly. The laws were tightened.And it did annoy a lot of gun enthusiasts.Total handgun offenses in the UK in 1909 was 1983 incidents. In 2010 it was 3105. Yup, that turned the tide right there.

Pokey.Clyde: ghare: 20 dead 6-and-7-year-olds say George Will is full of shiat.And I say you are full of shiat. Just what kind of laws would have stopped that dumbass from killing his mother and stealing guns from her?
dickfreckle: Believe it or not, George Will is still among the saner of the right's pundits, despite him often publishing turds.Seriously, folks - when guys like George Will and Pat Buchanan are your intellectual titans, maybe it's time for a little reflection on exactly where everything went horribly wrong. Probably that moment you all decided that pandering to retards was your best shot at success.
Kimothy: Except that the examples he gives are actually examples of laws that work, making these kinds of mass shootings the exception not the rule. Shootings like this are incredibly RARE in those countries. In the USA, they are commonplace and occur several times a year.
