Better than infringing on God-given Second Amendment solutions. I don't see any Constitutional amendments guaranteeing freedom of Basketball.
 
2013-01-17 09:14:56 AM
Ban teenagers.

Finally, some common sense bipartisan solutions.

How much stricter woud you like to see Chicago gun laws? You know, the ones already ruled unConstitutional?
 
2013-01-17 09:27:11 AM
Federally fund armed guards at every high school event nationwide. Also, all coaches and assistant coaches, plus game officials, must carry concealed weapons.

Here I was expecting an excellent chance to start my morning off with a lot of snark because of a stupid policy, but no, that was just subby being funny. Subby owes me a good headline that isn't half-made up.

How many bullets were in the clip?

Well it's a good thing that Chicago's extremely strict gun laws are working....you know, reducing gun crime.

Chicago already has the the strictest gun laws and guess what? Its just like we have been telling you criminals don't follow the laws! Its what makes them criminals! The laws you want to pass elsewhere to be like Chicago won't work! Disarming the good law abiding people is exposing them needlessly to criminals with bad intent and makes for easy victims.
Passing more gun laws will be ineffective but you might feel better that you did something, you shouldn't. What you're doing is making more vulnerable victims and refusing to acknowledged that is shameful.
 
2013-01-17 09:33:37 AM
I thought guns were illegal in Chi town.
 
2013-01-17 09:34:23 AM
So now every shooting gets posted to Fark?
 
2013-01-17 09:34:58 AM
If you want to prevent violence at high school basketball games, that's the only way to go. Now thugs are going to have to terrorize pick-up games at city parks if they want to shoot up basketball games. At least there, the body count will be smaller, and white people won't be potential victims (rapper wannabe's excepted).
It's basic common sense.
 
2013-01-17 09:38:26 AM
That was rude, the gunmen doesn't know that guns are outlawed there? geez

Once they go house to house and confiscate all the evil guns we won't have this problem.

Yay more dead children. The price of guns high enough yet?

midnight basketball games reduce crime. not afterschool.

Duh
 
2013-01-17 09:47:55 AM
According to school board logic, the ONLY solution is to raise taxes and make everyone carry those clear backpacks!

They should tighten up the extremely lax gun laws in Chicago. That should fix everything.
 
2013-01-17 09:48:43 AM

How to argue with a liberal - Gun Control

Liberal: You don't need an assault weapon to hunt deer!

You: An assault weapon is not for hunting deer, it is a weapon for self defense and for the defense of others against whatever threat may arise, including but not limited to muggers or home break ins, but more importantly to effectively defend against the possibility of a well-organized, well-coordinated, and well-equipped threat. It is currently the most effective, powerful, and accurate style of small arms available to the public.

Liberal: You don't need a 30-round HIGH CAPACITY magazine to hunt deer!! lolz!

You: First off, a 30rd magazine is not high capacity, so stop calling it that. A 30 round magazine is considered standard capacity for the AR/AK platform. A 100 round drum would be properly characterized as a high capacity mag. More rounds equal more firepower, which equals a greater ability to deal with any threat that may present itself.

Liberal: Well maybe we should just give everyone Tanks and RPGs! LOLZORS!

You: Civilians should not have access heavy armor, highly explosive ordinance, rockets, nukes, etc. These are highly advanced and powerful weapons of war specifically designed to cause destruction on a large scale to not just personnel but also to infrastructure, and capital. An assault rifle is an anti-personnel weapon and considered a SMALL ARMS weapon by military standards. It's not in the same ballpark.

Liberal: Well how many more children need to die before we do something?

You: Please, do not use scare tactics. Historically there is not a single instance in history where scare tactics have been used to deprive the people of liberties in which it worked out favorably for the people! Violent and heinous acts are a problem that lies within the individual and should be addressed as such. Blaming the tool used for the evil acts is equivalent to blaming a spoon for turning you into a fat liberal turd.

Liberal: But But... BUSH and CHENEY!!... and GLOBAL WARMING!!! and, and uhh..

You: Have a nice day!
 
2013-01-17 09:56:07 AM
You know what every single one of these violent offenders has in common? They were all wearing some kind of clothing. Ban clothing, and you will end violent crime. Only when every booby flies free will we truly be safe. We must do this immediately. For the children. Don't think about it, just do it. Trust me.

//okay, statistically speaking, fat people are almost never the shooter. Fat people can still have clothes.

Nothing to see here, just Chicago south side self imposed population control.
 
2013-01-17 10:00:22 AM
Chicago?

I thought guns were outlawed in Chigaco, I'm confused.
I was really hoping that the dictates passed down from on high by our benevolent monarch Obumhole would make society safe... You mean they wont?

You mean this is just the first step of a rights grab?
I had no idea....

I use this argument: Do we really need cars that can do 150-160mph when the posted speed limits are 55/65/70/80mph? Wouldn't you be breaking the law and potentially putting other lives at risk by using your vehicle to its capacity in an irresponsible manner? No different than guns. You may not need one that shoots a 30- or 100-clip mag, but if you want one, you should be able to have one.

Good point... but of course we all know cars can't kill people! oh wait.... :-/

ferretman: Well it's a good thing that Chicago's extremely strict gun laws are working....you know, reducing gun crime.


Because when people ignore speed limit signs and go 45 in a 30 it means that traffic laws don't work and we should abolish them.
Because when people beat their wives it means laws against assault and battery don't work and we should abolish them.

Herp derp, herp derp.

It's going to take many more pieces of a larger puzzle to solve a problem like this one. Gun control laws are effective in many other places, but it appears Chicago deeper issues with this story.

When we ban high school basketball games, only the criminals will have high school basketball games.

Fair enough. We know guns had nothing to do with it.

You: An assault weapon is not for hunting deer, it is a weapon for self defense and for the defense of others against whatever threat may arise, including but not limited to muggers or home break ins.


You don't need a weapon like that for self or home defense either. It's not something you can carry around with you all the time like a handgun, so it won't help you against a mugging on the street or a carjacking. And I doubt it would be ideal for any kind of close-quarters use like a midnight break-in or burglary.

BlindRaise: more importantly to effectively defend against the possibility of a well-organized, well-coordinated, and well-equipped threat.


And that's what our police, FBI, and military are for. To protect us from large, well-organized threats, whether foreign or domestic. This is not the sort of thing that falls on the individual, except in an anarchy or a failed state like Somalia.

BlindRaise: It is currently the most effective, powerful, and accurate style of small arms available to the public.


And that's precisely the problem. Having extremely effective and powerful small arms available to the public is the problem.
