The man who is believed to be holed up in the Midland City hostage situation following a shooting on a school bus is Jimmy Lee Dykes, 65, who was scheduled to be in court Wednesday for a bench trial on a menacing charge.

My guess is that he's guilty.

Bontesla: 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?


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.

Such events are not "commonplace". Overall crime rates, including homicide, have followed a declining trend.

Fair enough, but the  desensitization  question remains.


NOT fair enough. We're not talking about the overall crime rate; we're talking about heinous examples of gun violence.  Also, anything can be commonplace even while its rate of occurrence is declining; newspapers, for instance.

Solution for perverse desensitization is still foreskin rejuvenation.

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


Bring charges against the gun and appoint a public defender and take it to trial.
If you can convince a jury of the gun's peers that it was a willing accomplice acting of it's own volition, you'll win a conviction and you can send the gun to prison.

Now if the gun was forced to go along with this against it's will, you should probably charge the wielder with gunnapping as well.

I am not anti-gun at all - and yes, some people should not have guns - they are not the same thing
that you think this is a "side" speaks volumes

Your insistence that yours is a nuanced pro-gun view is a boon to the anti-gun lobby. It provides a soft middle to compromise when no compromise is necessary.

Your attitude and views are tools of this administration to force gun control down the throats of all Americans. That's whether you believe it to be so or not.

So gun control down our throats is the atrocity of which you speak? You should man-up and go full Lovelace or get your atrocity meter recalibrated.

The atrocities are the daily shootings they've been committing for the last few months. Highly visible, highly relatable, highly emotionally charged incidents. The messaging has been constant and on-point. Guns are bad. Guns are in the hands of crazies, racists, the unstable, and your neighbors.

You don't have to be Kreskin to figure out who has the power and resources to foment this PR campaign.

Would it make you happier if he hacked him with an ax instead?

Hmmm. Wonder why he didn't? Maybe because a GUN was handy?

Yes, guns are much easier to get than an ax. Amiright? The guy is crazy. Glad to see you blaming the tool instead.

the theory goes that if maybe crazy people had less access to weaponry with high rates of fire, then maybe less death would be the result.  which, you have to admit, is an argument with some merit.  after all, it takes time to hunt down and chop a school bus full of kids into hamburger meat with an ax.  using a gun?  about 40 seconds sustained fire on full auto.  then pause to reload, and bullet hose the bus again for luck.  shiat, with the right gun you don't even have to get on the bus...you'll shoot right through the damn engine block.

We know you are a Dem lefty. You don't have to keep pretending to be a Libertarian. Matches and fuel have also killed many people at a time(see Happyland for an example). Maybe you can get the government to ban them too. We know you just want free access to drugs.

Sane person: Maybe the insane shouldn't have access to guns.
Insane person: YOU'RE.... HURRRRRRR..... COMIN' FER ME GUNS!

Muck, dude, you have just proven you're insane.

Where did I say insane people should have guns? Insane people blame the gun and not the person. The insane person i was originally responding to blamed the gun.

I amend my diagnosis from "insane" to "illiterately insane".

//hint: read it again, for understanding this time.


I did. Where did I say insane people should have guns? I said the gun shouldn't be the focus of the blame.

Would it make you happier if he hacked him with an ax instead?

Hmmm. Wonder why he didn't? Maybe because a GUN was handy?

Yes, guns are much easier to get than an ax. Amiright? The guy is crazy. Glad to see you blaming the tool instead.

the theory goes that if maybe crazy people had less access to weaponry with high rates of fire, then maybe less death would be the result.  which, you have to admit, is an argument with some merit.  after all, it takes time to hunt down and chop a school bus full of kids into hamburger meat with an ax.  using a gun?  about 40 seconds sustained fire on full auto.  then pause to reload, and bullet hose the bus again for luck.  shiat, with the right gun you don't even have to get on the bus...you'll shoot right through the damn engine block.

We know you are a Dem lefty. You don't have to keep pretending to be a Libertarian. Matches and fuel have also killed many people at a time(see Happyland for an example). Maybe you can get the government to ban them too. We know you just want free access to drugs.

Actually, I can recall thinking Weaver95 was right of center back in 2002/2003 when I first started lurking.
I prefer to think that the world has shifted, not him.


Does that mean he isn't calling himself a libertarian anymore?

But Muck4doo, a gun is a tool. Like a butcher knife or a harpoon, or uhh... an alligator.

The comments there make the Politics page look like Plato's classroom.

The answer, clearly, is MORE PRAYER.


My favorite is poor Jessica who misread the article and was called out for blaming the bus driver. Instead of responding with "oops, my bad" or just deleting her post she goes full moran.

I'd be happier if he gave him a bunch of flowers and a foot massage, but we should probably stick to the facts of the situation.

If prayer is not allowed on school busses, of course this is going to happen. Also, the shooter should have had more personal responsibility and taxes are too high.

There are laws against taking hostages.

And they impede the rights of the majority of people who don't take hostages.
