Nope, still not the time to talk...

This has to be a lie.  There are laws about bringing guns onto school grounds.  And we all know that gun control laws work.

Two more people got some glorious 2nd Amendment freedom today.

If only we could set up some sort of Gun-Free area or zone where criminals would not be allowed to bring their weapons

Or more accurately they got to see first hand how well Gun-Control laws really work.

Agreed. Maybe we should make some laws against randomly shooting people as well.

Well, we don't know who did the shooting and why, or with what kind of weapon. It's too early to even blame gun owners and the NRA, let alone have a discussion.

Really?  You know what the three victims now were shot by?  You know that it wasn't bought legally?  Because if you know that much detail, the police probably need to talk to you because you clearly know the shooter and knew his plans, so you're an accomplice.
 
2013-01-22 02:07:20 PM  
obviously, this is entirely the fault of Texas and their Orwellian restrictions on legal gun owners!

But clearly not too early for you to start defending the NRA from being the victim in all of this.

Indeed, if only more people in Texas had firearms, this never would have happened.
 
2013-01-22 02:09:30 PM  
if ONLY Texas would relax their regulations on gun ownership then maybe someone could have stopped this madness!  Because when I think of 'draconian restrictions on guns', I immediately think of Texas, right guys?
 
2013-01-22 02:09:34 PM  

Fark It: what kind of weapon


I'm going to go out on a limb and guess it was a gun. Unless you think they were shot with a baseball bat or a knife.
 
2013-01-22 02:09:46 PM  
Reports are coming in that the shooter used an AK47 with a high capacity clip.
 
2013-01-22 02:09:58 PM  
Who was the TX legislator last week who said no one's gonna start shooting in Texas because they know everyone's armed?

Agreed - but I think it is the time to discuss why the 2nd amendment doesn't mention full automatic weapons and yet our rights are trampled by not allowing every man free access to the machine gun/rocket launcher of choice. Soon only criminals will own machine guns and rocket launchers.

Hopefully, a guy who attends Lone Star College.

What the article doesn't mention is the people shot at were zombies, and the shooters were just trying to prevent the impending zombie apocalypse.
 
2013-01-22 02:12:42 PM  
The man was wearing a Falcons cap.

Well, that explains it.

The fact that you don't know it's called a magazine proves that you're not qualified to be a part of this discussion.

Most states allow people to buy machine guns, there is just an extra, extensive registration process. The machine gun registry was closed in 1986 because of the Hughes Amendment, which was ramrodded through as an Amendment to the FOPA despite failing to garner enough votes to be added in.

/complain about the lack of a reasonable discussion
//immediately start talking about machine guns and rocket launchers

"We don't know if some semiautomatic weapon or assault rifle was used, that would be speculation."  - MSNBC

It's like concern trolling: speculating while saying we can't speculate to make it look like we're responsible.

/I would bet at 100:1 that it was a semiautomatic weapon or double-action revolver.

Well it was on campus, so it's fairly easy to assume that he violated the law prohibiting carrying a gun on campus.  Unless you think that he violated absolutely no laws when he went on campus and shot people?  Or you believe that there is another combination of words we could write down and turn into a law that would have prevented this?

You are lying to me because the Governor of New York told me they were called magazine clips.

And if you can't trust the governor of New York, who can you trust?

This is a terrible argument, because changing the nouns proves it's not a logic you want to apply elsewhere:

"...but I think it is time to discuss why the 1st amendment doesn't mention the Internet and yet our rights are trampled by not allowing every man free access to the website of choice."

Modernity is not, in and of itself, a sufficient argument.  The Internet is a more powerful communications tool than the Founders could possibly have conceived of.  Yet no sane person would suggest that's sufficient reason to censor it.

That's crazy. Guns can actually kill people. Words and ideas aren't nearly that powerful!

So... multiple shooters?

2013-01-22 02:21:10 PM  
hmm.  MSNBC is saying that there are at least 2 victims and that they caught one of the shooters.  there might be another one on the loose.

MSNBC has one male handcuffed to a stretcher, and one male suspect fleeing towards a housing development. I don't know why he is a suspect, or if just fleeing from the sound of gunfire while wearing a hoodie and a ball cap makes you a suspect.

So far they are only using shooter in the singular.

May still be an active shooter on the loose. SWAT rolling in.

It's a lot easier to ignore a crazy on the Intartubes than it is to ignore a crazy storming through a mall, or theater, or church, or school, indiscriminately firing rounds through windows, walls, people, and so on..
