KiltedBastich: Why do you assume I am an American? I am not. I am a Canadian.


That's like being American by proxy. We like Canadians so much we consider you America Jr. You're polite, and you send us good looking actresses and actors and singers.
Unless you are one of those dirty French speaking Canadians, then stay the fark up in Møøse-Hump, Quebec.

Pretty safe assumption.

This breaks down victims and perpetrators by race, not gang membership. Can you explain your thinking? You can link to stormfront if it will help.

The Larch: AverageAmericanGuy: You're assuming it's a gangbanger.

This is a gun thread. According to the rules of a Fark gun thread, all black people who live in a city are gang bangers. That way we can discount all the victims as unimportant people deserve the protection of the law.


It's sickening.

We don't seem to have problems tightly regulating the possession, storage, and transport of explosives like C4, Semtex, grenades, mines, RPGs, etc. These can all cause mass/capricious death.

Why can we do it for one dangerous set of items but not for guns?

Next question:

The 2nd Amendment was written when the hand-loaded flint lock musket was the primary weapon of choice. Cartridge ammo was not common.

Why not heavily regulate ammo, filled with an explosive, as we do other explosives instead of guns?

WeenerGord: This article states that

Many of the teens with Pendleton at the time of the shooting were believed to be gang members and left the scene, according to reports.

Wonder if some gangster got street cred for killing her? Wonder if some in the black community might hate her because she performed at the inaugural? The old crab in the bucket syndrome?


And I wonder if your mother's heroin use is responsible for your low brain activity.

The solution to Chicago's problem is to make sure all the gang bangers have guns.

That way they'll all be polite to each other.

KiltedBastich: It always amazes me how difficult it is for some people to follow a simple chain of logic.

If firearms are plentiful and easy to obtain legally in your society, it then means that there is a plentiful supply of such legal weapons for criminals and the insane to buy, borrow or steal those firearms from the legal owners.

If firearms are rare and difficult to legally obtain in your society, then there is only a scarce supply of such legal weapons for criminals and the insane to buy, borrow or steal those firearms from the legal owners. In neither case is it legal for criminals or the insane to have guns. But only in the former case is it easy for them to get them anyhow.

This is the empirical result that every other nation in the world has discovered as a result of experimenting with gun control, and yet somehow Americans who argue against gun control cannot seem to understand it. It's really not that hard. Say what you will about the ideology or rights involved, many legal firearms means many firearm equipped criminals and insane individualss, few legal firearms means few firearm equipped criminals and insane individuals.

The only exception to this rule occurs when you have two locations close to each other, one with plentiful easy to acquire legal firearms, and one without. That results in smuggling of illegal weapons to profitably meet the black market demand. Much like how a great deal of Canadian criminals are armed with illegal weapons originally from legal American sources, or how areas with strict local gun control in the USA have issues with guns coming in from areas of the USA where the restrictions are much lower, to the point of near nonexistence. However, it is still the case that the existence of many illegal firearms is initially due to the presence of many legal firearms.

Guns don't manufacture themselves, and last time I checked gang-bangers and crazy people don't tend to be skilled gunsmiths. Almost all those firearms in the hands of criminals an ...


The prohibition on drugs has certainly worked, no?

I bet it comes out that the killing was contracted by a furiously jealous teen girl who hated the dead teen cos she "thought she was all that."

Or maybe the contractor's boyfriend/babydaddy was chasing after the dead teen.

Basically, Obama killed her, by inviting her to the inaugural, then letting her go back to Chicago.

So, ban Obama! Right?

For stating the obvious?

Are you an idiot?

So now correlation equals causation? Okay good, then we have 4x the homicide rate as the UK because we can get guns way easier, having a gun around you makes you more likely to kill your family than an intruder, southern states with more lax gun control have higher homicide rates than even Illinois, New York, etc because they have more lax gun control, and CCW holders are just as likely to commit homicide by gun on another person than non, meaning despite alleged higher responsibility, they're actually equal or more prone to shooting other people.

Now shut up or GTFO.

How about banning dumb black teenagers who randomly shoot into large groups of people without even hitting their intended target.

How farking stupid are they to just point and shoot?

This is why they can't be serial killers. White people are farked in the head, but they're smart enough to kill their targets.

Because the very day a tragedy involving the use of guns happens, that's the right time to talk about more gun control as with Sandy Hook, but if circumstance shows that gun control is doing nothing, then it's "too soon" to talk about the problem with gun control, right?

So what that's saying is that the private prison system is losing customers because the majority of victims were prior offenders.

Egoy3k: Police do not believe Hadiya was the intended target of the shooting.

Forget banning firearms. Get these damn gang bangers into ranges and teach them to stop holding their damn guns sideways. At least then they'll be killing each other.


I read a tongue in cheek op-ed (IIRC It was the Chi Trib or Sun-Times) saying exactly this - offer free marksmanship training to the gang bangers. Not only does it reduce the number of innocent victims being killed, it increases the number of gang bangers dying. Two birds, one stone.

My google fu is weak so I can't bring up the article.
