OnlyM3: moonscatter: The comments on Chron.com (Houston newspaper) are blaming this on liberals who are angry. Riiiiiight. I wonder if that's the new talking point?
Yeah liberals attacking in violent rage never happens

JFK - killed by liberal

Lincoln (Republican) - killed by democrat

MLK (Republican) - killed by democrat

Andrew Joseph Stack III, flew his Piper Dakota into IRS building after posting anti Bush/business manifesto online.

Theodore John "Ted" Kaczynski (AKA Uni-bomber) - Left wing eco terrorist Multiple murders and attempted murder

Floyd Lee Corkins II ( liberal gay activist) Entered "Conservative" Family Research Center and opened fire

James Chester Blanning (Planted multiple bombs around Aspen banks) A snippet from his threat:
Do not f*** with us or there will be mass death like we have all been part of over in that f***ing quicksand trap that rove and chaney's monkey bush put us into
*sounds like farkers

Bill Ayers (Obama friend and supporter) "I don't regret setting bombs; I feel we didn't do enough."

Carol Anne Burger (writer for the Huffington Post ) - stabbed her roommate 222 times with a screwdriver [ thank god she didn't have a gun]
Her final article for huff-po? "Yes, those Christians and Palin fans -- they're the ones you have to watch out for. "

John Patrick Bedell (Registered democrat) - Pentagon shooter.

Liberal talk show host Charles Karel Bouley on the air.
"F*** God D*mned Joe the God D*mned Motherf*cking plumber! I want Motherf*cking Joe the plumber dead."

Okay, how much do you want to lose because you're placing bets on the basis that you're deluded?


Can I parlay it with something more grounded in reality? Say "Odds there will be a post following this one?" That should bring me back to 1:1 odds and then we can make the bet.

Has the NRA gone on record yet with the declaration that the shooting in Phoenix would have been avoided if the other cube dwellers were packing heat?

/was at Tucson last year for the Festival of Books
//Tucsonites? Tucsononians? Tucsoners? told me several times that they were jokingly considering seceding from the rest of Arizona to form the state of South Arizona
///to separate themselves from the conservatives up north in Phoenix
////and the folks who do security at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix are the most paranoid I've ever encountered
//the only farking airport where I got escorted by security simply for walking around to different concourses to kill time between flights

natmar_76: Clearly the answer is more guns.

Sadly, less guns is not going to stop this either. We have a violent society. We glorify violence in media. We've made the military the most important thing in the nation, and arguably the world. Our favorite sports are extremely violent. We still promote violence, not just in action but in speech and interpersonal behavior, as a means to ending disagreements. We treat each other with shocking disregard in every day life. Yet we act surprised when people act violently.

Gun control will not stop random violence. People will use other weapons, bombs, chemicals, or even hand weapons. Gun control is treating the effect, not the cause. The NRA has one thing right, and it's that people kill people (with guns, and bombs, and poisons, and knives, and even their bare hands).

When you change the culture, you'll reduce incidents like this. Until then, it will still happen.


If only there was some non-violent method of conflict resolution that was as fast and affordable as violence. Or less conflict to resolve. Or less emphasis on getting things done immediately.

These kinds of arguements against guns are getting old. This is a mental health issue. People who want to kill people will do it even if you destroy all guns. Of course people know that but don't want logic to interfear with theit hatred of guns. Pathetic.

Kyro: [sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net image 437x555]


And yet, homicides due to guns are dropping, with 11,101 in 2011 (most recent data available), or 3.6 deaths due to firearms per 100,000 people. [citation]. Of over 2.5 million people who died in 2011, under half a percent of them were murdered with a gun. [citation]. More people (16,634) died of alcoholic liver disease, to say nothing of alcohol-induced death (26,256). Ban booze!

But it is in the news cycle now, so we'll get blasted with every single event that might involve a firearm, even though they are statistical outliers. But they make good copy.
 
2013-01-30 03:51:13 PM  
The only way to stop the violence is to greatly impove your social safety net but that means you'd have to kill every republican because they would not allow that.

Sid_the_sadist: Bring back the farking death penalty, and I mean the real one, in mass shootings.
That farker from Ft. Hood, the waste of flesh from Newtown, that "joker" dipshiat from CO.

We know they did it. There is no reasonable doubt. Death! No appeals, no farking books, no movies, no interviews on tv, no last meal, fark all that, kill 'em.

The problem is there is no deterrent from being a murdering cock-sucker. If a guy can kill 26 people, 20 of which are children, and get 3 hot meals, a bed, heat, water, cable tv, and sell his story to the highest bidder, where is the punishment? I've been deployed twice, once to Iraq, once to Afghanistan, and farking criminals live and eat better than I did. That's bullshiat!

I guaran-goddamned-tee you that if those farkers were lined up and hung on the 50 yard line during halftime at the Super Bowl people would think twice about going on a killing spree. fark all this bleeding-heart "if we do that we're no better than them" shiat. We are better than them. We don't arbitrarily murder innocent people, and they have no place whatsoever in our society, bury the bastards and move on.

You want to see mass shootings and gun violence in general decline? Punish the motherfarkers who commit those crimes. In public. Permanently.


Punishing crazy people doesn't deter crazy people.

///but universal background checks won't help! We just have to keep the status quo!!!

So you're angry at obmessiah's administration's refusal to follow up on background checks?

"And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don't have the time "
--- joe -the plagiarizer- biden when confronted on why the law enforcement branch of the US Government is refusing to enforce firearm laws.

*yet they had the time to ensure that firearms "walked" to buyers who could not pass existing background checks. Those firearms are now turning up at murder scenes. NIce work !!

If you truly believe that a screwdriver is just as effective tool for killing human beings as a Bushmaster, then by your own logic there is absolutely no need for a Bushmaster for self defense since a screwdriver is in every way an equivalent substitute.

Sorry, people are just tetting testy because they're tired of gun nuts slaughtering school children.

I'm picturing a massacre like Sandy Hook being a bit more difficult with only bare hands.

Let's take this line of thinking to its logical limits. Say instead of guns, there was a bank of switches on a wall. Flip a switch, and someone dies. Could you still stand up in public and say "this mass killing would have happened even if we deactivated the switches"?

///Slashies come in threes


Just last year we had someone in our building fired for saying that at a job performance review. He said something to the effect of "I'm feeling like snapping and bringing a gun up here" and was escorted immediately off the grounds by the "security" (which is made up of unarmed retirees). The next day his work team refused to show up at work and we were all told to alert security immediately if anyone saw him around the building.

After he was fired, he lost his house, got arrested, was out on bail, got arrested in another state, out on bail again, and then blew his head off with a shotgun.

I'm pretty sure he was into mass-shooting stories before they were cool.  In fact, his favorite was this one in Portland, but he's sure you never heard of it.  It was kind of obscure.

Well you cant get rid of all the guns, you simply cant. Its hillarious that some people think they could. You might be able to find and identify crazy people on a more regular basis and get them medicated. Maybe. Dont know, we have never tried. We as a country have tried many times to regulate guns. In some places like Detroit they have tried heavily regulating guns. It hasnt worked out very well. And no, dont cite sources for umbumfarkistan or wherever since those countries arent full of, well, Americans.

My mother who has been screaming for a ban on all gun's forever nearly had a breakdown over the news stories today. The last thing she screamed for the day was "I dont care what the damn politicians do today but they have to do SOMETHING now!". She said "something". Thats exactly what we are going to get at this point, "something". It may be pointless, it probably wont do jack shiat but irritate a small group of people and affect the numbers farkall. But at least they did something right?

/sit back and have some more popcorn. Aint none of us gonna make it out of this stupid show alive anyhow.
