Listen, let the libtards biatch and moan about their precious "safety," but for me, I've got a dick even longer than the 32-round magazine on my dual-wielded TEC-9s.

Unfortunately, what I do not have is a third hand. So when I've fired all 64 rounds (hollow-points, natch), and the terrorist/burglars/deer is still standing there, what am I supposed to do, you panty-wetting clowns?

No, seriously, if you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. I worry about this a lot. Normally I'd ask the NRA, but they're not answering the phone for some reason.

TypoFlyspray: brnt00: Well funded, national healthcare (including comprehensive mental health care), as well as the removal of the stigmas associated with those who seek out mental health care when they need it, could have likely prevented this tragedy. But let's keep derping about gun control.

You're never going to get all the guns away from the people who have no business having the power to kill at a distance, and you're never going to identify all the violently crazy early enough to keep them from acting on it. SO, given that it is relatively easy to get a gun and given that it is relatively had to get someone institutionalized for violent insanity (until they actually kill someone) perhaps it's not a matter off either well funded national healthcare (including comprehensive mental healthcare) and Removing the stigma associated with using mental healthcare services, OR some common sense gun control, but rather both? Particularly if the latter is informed by the former?

Characterizing what's being seriously discussed regarding gun control right now as Derpery across the board is failing to consider that a lot of the suggestions out there are reasonable by any sense, and itself verges on Derp.



Nonense. Every bad thing that happens is caused exclusively by a single factor that just happens to irritate the person who points out that factor for all to see.

===========================================

WAIT JUST A MINUTE... YOU HAVE IT ALLL WRONG

Republicans want smaller Governmen and less taxest; Democrats want larger Government with more laws every day. Democrats want to govern what you eat, what you drive, how to get your electricity, Democrats want to increase taxes and increase rules on businesses. When you see all these new laws like watering you yard on off days or your school gets fined because a kid gave someone a cookie or you get a ticket in the mail from a traffic camera that is all Democrats...

Kit Fister: Insatiable Jesus: Kit Fister: Giltric: Kit Fister: I take BP meds, otherwise i'm healthy. I own, probably, 16 or 17 guns, combination of pistols, rifles, shotguns, etc.

I keep at any given time about 5,000 rounds of the common calibers (considering I shoot 2-3000 rounds per weekend, I'm ordering fairly frequently).

And this is where someone like me who passionately supports the RKBA says without snark that you should not own firearms.

*sigh* BLOOD PRESSURE, not BIPOLAR.


Based on your posts, it could have gone either way.

Fair point, however, while i do see a therapist for being mildly autistic (aspergers) and occasional depression, nothing nearly so horrible.

I've also already made arrangements with my wife and family that should I get worse, my therapist will call and notify them, and they will quietly remove the firearms from my home before I even get there.

Further, if anything, I tend to be self-destructive and not violent, so I have figured to voluntarily disarm and get rid of my guns at the point where my depression gets bad enough to even start considering violence or suicide.

I guess i'm one of the few people out there that's at least willing to own up to the fact that, should i have a problem, I need to have a contingency plan.

But, since you're pointing out some small details, I take it you're OK with requiring insurance and registration of all firearms? It's a start.


Would have prevented this how? It wouldn't.

Just say you want to incrementally make it harder and harder to acquire and keep firearms, resulting in an eventual ban.

The NRA and gun lobby has an indefensible position and situations like CT only draw attention to it.

6% of Americans hunted last year.

Since Americans are not ever attacked by a squadron of bad guys, there is no argument for allowing Tanks, RPG's, assault rifles, ICBM's etc for home use.

Demanding that people be allowed spray 100 rounds in 1 min without limits is stupid.

When a crazy person decides they want to kill ...we cant stop them. They can bash, stab etc and will catch someone by surprise.

When a crazy person decides they want to kill 30 people - they cant do that without access to military type firepower / and explosives.

The tragedy may not have been avoidable, but it was certainly something that could have been mitigated. The NRA knows it and they should be ashamed at their lobby success.

letrole: The interesting thing here is the way that guns and politics are being blamed for spree shootings.

Spree shootings are caused by a lack of personal restraint. In some cases, such as Charles Whitman, the fellow was suffering from madness with an organic cause ie a brain tumour. He left diaries and letters that showed jumbled and irrational thoughts.

But in nearly all cases, this lack of personal restraint comes from the breakdown of society.

1. If suicide is no longer a sin,
2. If public disobedience and defiance against authority are glorified,
3. If fame or celebrity is rewarded without merit,
4. If Right and Wrong are no longer absolute,
5. If erratic behaviour is no longer shameful,
6. If internal or self justification is held as a virtue,

-- then it will all continue along this path until society completely collapses, and a new order reforms from the ashes


So, basically, atheist gays are the problem here. Good to know.

So they chose to avoid the fight. Sometimes the better part of valor is knowing when to step down. All of you calling them cowards and standing on your soap boxes beating your chests, YOURE the real swine here.

Kudos to the NRA for a moment of silence and trying not to feed the fire.

What do you mean? Weren't you around for the school shootings back in the 1990s? Or the 1980's? Or the 1970s?

The only difference now is that because of saturated media coverage due to 24 hour news channels and the Internet, we hear more about it. What might have been a regional news story, or perhaps a short-lived national one, now occupies us for days, weeks, even months.
