hinten: How exactly owning a long list of devices that are primarily designed to kill makes you safer is anyone's guess.


don't you watch Walking Dead?

Clearly, we need to ban military style cargo pants.

Coco LaFemme: Gee, who would have thought that being a paranoid survivalist stockpiling guns with a mentally disturbed child in the house would end up being a really stupid idea. I wish this woman wasn't dead because if her son hadn't shot her first, I'd be demanding her ass be put on trial for all 26 dead bodies her son racked up. She helped create the monster, she should have been made to pay for it.


This 1000x times this.

The whole media "tragedy" angle is missing one fundamental fact: This family spawned this effed up asswit kid, and probably fought to keep him out of treatment or custody. Every damn one of them should be held accountable. But since justice happened to the mom, I guess we can start with the Ernst and Young VP dad. The one dumping the mom in 2009, the same year she quit her job to homeschool lil shooter Adam.

Mentat: I also heard that he was wearing a lot of pouches, which means we need to ban Rob Liefeld.


I can get behind that.

Let's not do this. I said i agree with you on guns. No need to go out and discredit me yet again.

I understand the gun control debate, but can we address the serious derp problem we have in this country?

She could afford those guns but couldn't afford a gun safe.

Isn't it time that we paid our kindergarten teachers more?

Stocking up on some extra water, easy-to-prepare food and propane canisters in anticipation of losing power for a few days when a severe storm strikes: not crazy.
Six tons of "Apocalypse Chow" and an armory a Somali warlord would beat off to so you can become Lord Humongous when the Mummy Uprising strikes (the zombies are just a ploy): crazy.

No, but it seems a bit of unnecessary trolling to call him out for saying something obvious pretending it's an opinion that he finally has that lines up with yours.

But maybe I just don't get the joke.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Stocking up on some extra water, easy-to-prepare food and propane canisters in anticipation of losing power for a few days when a severe storm strikes: not crazy.


Any given time I have around 2 weeks worth of food and water. Not because I'm a doomsday prepper, but because I live in a hurricane friendly path in summer/fall, and ice-storm happening area in winter/spring. It's just what you do.

/that and I HATE going to the grocery store every week
//plus, the only thing I normally need to go pick up before an inevitable storm is more alcohol.

tenpoundsofcheese: Diogenes: Weaver95: tenpoundsofcheese: maybe the press can stop covering stupid stories like the Mayan apocalypse.

get rid of shows like the Walking Dead too while you are at it.

hey, I like those stories!

Yes, let's eliminate the First Amendment to protect the Second.

I didn't say that the government should step in an stop it.

The press and hollywood could have a bit of restraint and not put out those stories or those types of shows.


It's fiction. When people start reacting badly IRL to fiction, the problem is not with the creators of the fiction. Hint: crazy people are crazy.

There is a lot of beating off going on over this whole mess.

People. This shiat happens.
You can't stop it.

We all die.
It's how we live that counts.

Hug your kids. Don't be a nutjob parent. Keep the dangerous shiat locked up.
If your kid is a dangerous shiat, keep him locked up, too.

Hold on, now, I'm not sure how culpable the dad is at this point. Hell, the reason for the divorce may have been *related* to the fact that the son was Looney Tunes and the mom wouldn't get help/admit it/whatever.

/Or the crazy of both of them together caused him to go "Fark this, I'm out.".

I think 'end of the world' scenarios have really warped the brains of some people in society. And all this doomsday crap is driving people to do crazy things. I wouldn't be surprised if some people snap on December 21 thinking the world is ending when really it farking isn't. Everyone seems to think the world ends on Friday but has no farking clue how it will.

so having a couple hundred rounds of ammo in your house makes you a prepper?

I was a prepper and didn't even know it.

She wasn't a teacher, she was living on alimony.

Survivalism claims another 27 innocent victims.

When are people going to learn? NOBODY SURVIVES LIFE.

The collapse of Civilization will take down any reason you might have to survive unless you are a stone age jungle dweller or a brain dead zombie.

Well there goes the theory I had about her buying the guns for the kid so he could plink. Of course this new twist is kind of worst. I supposed the next article is how she was grooming him 24/7 about the end of times coming.

Sleeping Monkey: She gets the fail award of the year for believing that having assault weapons in her home would make her safe. Now that entire community is paying for her ignorance.


Not necessarily.

There are two more questions here of immediate relevance:

- Would a larger base of armed, trained citizenry prevent more deaths than these occasional outliers?
- Would a larger base of armed, trained citizenry (say, the teachers, or anyone within hearing range of the gunshots) have provided for earlier dispatch of the shooter, such that fewer deaths would have been incurred per incident?

Other questions of longer-term relevance include:

- Can we change our cultural basis to reduce the severity and frequency of these tragedies? (i.e. small children are IMMENSELY preoccupied with shooting and killing people and how awesome blowing things up is; gangsters and criminals are idolized; shooting people makes you really cool. How do we stop this from becoming the mentality of children who grow up into adults that don't always shed this mentality?)

- Can we improve mental health services to detect and treat people, such that fewer will become this unstable?

And so on.

tenpoundsofcheese: Their basement is probably packed with food and supplies.


That she thinks will last 20 years, but really is going to last one or two. My parents have so much oat, grain, and flour, and I'm thinking... I could bake a loaf a week and go through this in a year.

HotWingConspiracy: There is no such thing as a responsible gun owner.


I'm sure there are people that legally purchase their weapons, know every rule about not showing off with it, treating it like a bullet is in the chamber and lock them away in a safe place where the kids can't find them if they even tried or come across it on accident.

Unfortunately, some people aren't responsible and that has led to unnecessary harm.

To those people calling his mother out on not having a gun safe. There is nothing to say she didn't have one. She may have had trigger locks on them. But a 20 year old who lives in the house with her, who has gone to the gun range with her, will most likely know the combination to the safe and where the trigger lock key is.
