KiltedBastich: Why do you assume I am an American? I am not. I am a Canadian.
CliChe Guevara: AverageAmericanGuy: cptjeff: AverageAmericanGuy: You're assuming it's a gangbanger.Pretty safe assumption.I'm not ready to make that assumptionoh really? why not?[www.wnd.com image 609x517]
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.
WeenerGord: This article states thatMany 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?
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 ...
justtray: mjones73: Ed Grubermann: Cybernetic: I see that Chicago's strict gun-control laws are working as well as ever.And our thread's designated asshole makes himself known...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.
tenpoundsofcheese: Lexx: His hands are tied even though people he now personal ties to are dying.He should make shooting people illegal and also say it is immoral.If only there was a Mayor in Chicago who 0bama could talk to and if only there were strict gun laws.
TheDumbBlonde: Fast and furious, Baby.

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.
Lt. Cheese Weasel: Paradise.
