1) $100,000 in ammo? REALLY? REALLY?
2) could we have a national "WACK JOBS come out of the closest" day?

One day a year, all the crazies come out and talk about the nutty shiat they plan on doing. The cops can round them up and lock them up.
And no, I am not talking about the GOP convention. That is every 4 years.

There's a proposal. From a gunsmith no less.

One of the stupider reporters here in PA managed to shoehorn "These are all False Flag operations to help Obama take our guns away at the direct order of the United Nations" *AND* "The biggest mass shootings in history have happened on Obama's watch and he does nothing, as usual.".

Gee, what was it that Professor Farnsworth so eloquently stated? I don't want to live on this planet anymore? Yeah, I'm about reaching that point myself. I don't believe in doomsday prophesies or religious fanaticism, but I'm beginning to think maybe, just maybe, the Mayans need to be right so that humanity can reset itself and we can try this whole "existing" thing all over again. Because after several billion years of plodding around this rock.........we suck. We suck bad, and some of us don't even seem to care that we suck.

FTFA: 47 guns and ammunition worth over $100,000.

I'm assuming the value of the 47 guns was included in that number?

You might want to bring that up with the Connecticut state legislature. They are one of six states without an assisted outpatient treatment law.

We don't know enough of the shooter's backstory yet to know if the law would've applied to him, but still...this wasn't a question of resources (mom was getting some major coin in the divorce settlement) or upgrading the system. You can have all the resources in the world but if the law's not there to allow commitment, you the parent are SOL.

Did the guy have the guns and the ammo?

Likely so.

Was possession of same necessarily illegal or demonstrative of "bad intent"?

Possibly, likely not.

Is it POSSIBLE that wifey was ENRAGED at hubby over some irrelevant issue and MADE THE WHOLE THING UP, capitalizing on the Connecticut story to "stick it" to hubby?

You decide.

CSB:

Years ago I bought a very nice home from a very nice couple in the quiet and affluent community of [redacted]. When we showed up with the first truckload of our furnishings, said couple was still moving out: In the (very large) garage were several open gun safes, and guns of every description were laid out neatly on a carpet the floor of the garage.

And I mean guns of EVERY description: Rifles, pistols, muzzle loaders... from antique collectibles the most recent high-power sniper rifles to Uzi's - YES FULLY AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUNS, and ammunition and accessories of every description.

Turns out that the gentleman was a licensed firearms dealer, and every single weapon and cartridge in his "arsenal' was in his possession legally. He was also a skilled machinist, and many of the guns he had were custom built - including an air rifle (powered by a scuba tank) that he used for "plinking" coyotes - as firing conventional weapons was illegal in that area.

Oddly enough, he looked a HELL of a lot like the guy pictured in TFA - scruffy, long-haired and bearded - yet he was a fine upstanding citizen, and close friends with many members of the local law enforcement community, many of whom were his customers.

/CSB

Looks like 2013 will be the "year of the gun" here in the US. It will be interesting to see the political games unfold.

Does the 0 in Obamacare stand for the number of children that can be denied insurance for pre existing conditions?
 
2012-12-16 09:32:48 PM

Weaver95: would improving the mental health care system have helped prevent gun violence...?


It might help...but there is recent history of states taking billions for mental health care and shuffling it off to more politically-popular targets. Technically this isn't supposed to be done, but New York got away with it with a wink and a nod from Washington until an expose revealed that billions in mental-health-care money...in this case, for the developmentally disabled...was being diverted.

And then you've got a failure of a program, but one that can't be killed because it buys so many votes.

you didn't answer the question. lame deflection.

Did the killer not have access to any mental health care?
Did he or his mom not have the money to go to a professional?
If the mental healthcare were free, would he have gone to get help?

don't hijack a thread. this is not about pre-existing conditions.

the assertion was that somehow people are rethinking 0bamacare in light of the shootings as if 0bamacare would have prevented it.

think about it. prior to the kindergarten massacre, the GOP spent all year vilifying teacher's and trying to destroy their unions. then some idiot goes and shoots 20 kids and we've got Republicans falling all over themselves saying teachers are great and how they've always loved teachers. I'm just wondering how deep the hypocrisy hole goes is all.

then it will move on to solving obesity and male pattern baldness.

Suicide council. Is that kind of like a death panel?

I suppose you could argue that Cho's problems stemmed from not having proper treatment through most of his life, and that suddenly having it for the 2 years he spent in college wasn't enough to change anything?

I think the important problem is that we can't force those people to get help until after they commit a crime. My family deals with an aunt of mine like that on a regular basis. When she goes off her meds everybody in the family knows, but everyone is powerless to do anything about it until she's back in jail, where they force her back onto the meds, then release her and start the cycle over again.
