coeyagi: machoprogrammer: MichiganFTL: Oh hey look, let's post snarky comments about being trendily anti-gun! Not like actually worry about someone's child who's in a horrible situation or someone's father/son/brother who's heading to ICU...

Crap, I'm on fark, what am I thinkin'? How big was the gun's clip? Did it have assault bullets? If only our busses had bulletproof windows and panic rooms.

Don't forget, only conservatives use fear to push their agenda. IF WE DON'T BAN ALL GUNS, YOU WILL ALL BE SHOT BY A PSYCHO WITH A GUN!

Forced sterilizations in red states could have prevented this (debate).


Why would they need forced sterilizations with all that abstinence only sex-education they get there?

LadySusan: Gun deaths are horrible. When someone has good data that show a solution I'll be willing to listen. In the meantime I'd rather worry about lack of adequate health care where the real horrible and unnecessary causes of death occur.

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/lcod.htm

Gun deaths aren't even much of a statistic here.


Ah. So what's your acceptable threshold of gun deaths? At what point is it too much?

There, I fixed it so the gun ban crowd can feel better about the headline.


That afraid to address America's violent gun culture, are ya? Even DISCUSSING it means "ban guns".

3) Person A, by extension, are basically saying you're insane because Person A is coming for your guns because he advocates that insane people shouldn't have guns.

Clear now?


I see what you are saying now. I agree with him insane people shouldn't have guns, and I did focus too much on his second point about the weapons rather than his first point about insane people. Your 3rd point still doesn't make sense.

muck4doo: Duck_of_Doom: Why can't it be both the gun's and the wielder's fault?

One is an inanimate object. Does that help?


Would this have happened the same way if the person wielded a sword, or a handful of bullets, or a cricket bat, or a microwave oven, or a pinch of mercury? If "yes the results would be the same", then the inanimate object is not the problem. If no, then there is some factor making these crimes quite deadly. What could it be?

Doesn't make sense..... to you.

Third time's the charm maybe?

Ok, if Weaver says insane people shouldn't have guns, and then you think he's coming for your guns, you're basically admitting that you're insane. Because he isn't saying he's coming for all guns, just the guns of insane people.

Please God, if you exist, please make him understand this time.

Gaseous Anomaly: jehovahs witness protection: Yep. All the dumbass anti-gun morons jumped right is as expected.
Did any of you give a damn about to 500 plus people murdered in the gun free utopia of Chicago last year?
I didn't think so.
F*cking idiots.

You make a good point; to save more lives, instead of banning "assault weapons" we should ban handguns; far more people are killed with handguns.

No reason to duck. That's the truth. But the left wing derp brigade follows everything they see/hear on MSNBC.

People save up all year for the Peanut Festival. Every hotel is booked solid. It's a big deal.

In Enterprise (a few miles away) there is a monument to the Boll Weevil. Back in the day, it ate all the cotton, and the farmers had to find a new cash crop. They made so much more money on peanuts, they erected a white marble statue of a lady holding a giant black bug in the center of town, in a fountain.

We should be discussing an ongoing standoff, for starters. The gun culture is not what is causing violence in America.
Secondly, you missed the reference.

I'm a libbie lib liberal. I think they are all horrible. The problem is, the data just doesn't show how to prevent them. In the meantime, while folks are trying some things out to maybe get good data and a good solution, I'd rather focus on bigger causes of horrible death.

My hypothesis is that it's primarily bad culture mixed with some mental illness. Apparently Canada has more guns than cats and they have very few gun deaths (citation needed). If I were queen I would be focusing on some social changes to improve the culture so folks were less likely to decide that killing was a good idea. I'd also be funding the shiat out of brain research for better approaches to curing mental illness. Also world peace. I'd work on that too. And unicorns with sparkly rainbow farts. And an end to sentence fragments.

Maybe we should ban the nuts instead of the guns?

It should be, I think. I mean, the police found cause to arrest the guy, and he has a history of questionable behavior. I think that constitutes a viable threat to the public, under the circumstances.

/I'd be fine with having the evidence being presented to a judge and the impound order requiring judicial approval, but please... don't hesitate

So you're saying that more robust screening processes for the purchase of firearms couldn't have stopped this certifiable nutcase from getting a gun and shooting someone? Somehow... I disagree with your assessment.

I didn't say he's coming for my guns. He said the argument had merit, because guns can kill a lot of people. I said matches and fuel can kill a lot of people too. I didn't say anything about Weaver taking my guns. Now you are making the stretch. Try not to hurt yourself.

Acceptable threshold of gun deaths is 1 for every predatory home invader, and 0.5 of every robber or miscreant home invader.

Also should provide limits for people killed by the authorized gun and badge crowd. Allowing them 0.001 of every drug user on uppers causing social disturbance, and 0.0 of every drug user on downers.
