He got a CEO and two lawyers? Given the current economy there are many who would call him a hero.

This is Arizona. No such thing as a gun-free zone. (Legally, maybe, but we likes our guns 'round here, boy.)

It's not like this is a rare occurrence. My husband has witnessed two workplace shootings in Phoenix. One outside a transmission shop in Sunnyslope while he was on his way to pick up his mom when her car broke down, and one right next to his workplace as he was pulling into the parking lot. I'm sure he's relieved he didn't have to see this one.

You should treat him to a movie at your local theater complex!

I'm a liberal, and I own a gun. I'm also gay, so maybe the 'queen' part fits.

I'd be interested to know: There was an office shooting in Minneapolis in September of last year that resulted in four fatalities; did that get a 'News Flash' tag? If not, then seems like decent corroboration of the idea that this is only a 'News Flash' because of current anti-gun sentiment.

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.

I'm somewhat torn here.

On the one hand, every farking assault and murder in the US making FARK is pretty goddamned annoying, since there are 300+ million of us so even if we were all secretly Ghandi there'd be over 10 of those stories a day.

On the other, at least we're reflecting an actual awareness that there is crime outside the really statistically weird shiat like mass shootings, and outside guns.

On the third hand-sized dexterous appendage (ladies), that story about the dude running over his wife, calling 911, and then curb-stomping her was not good for my mood that day, at least guns are a clean-kill weapon more or less.

Oh, yes, Somalia and Uganda have less than 5 guns per 100 people, that infographic is totally, definitely using a completely legit source with a solid methodology.

From now on I'm going to assume that every mass shooting in America was perpetrated by UN operatives in cahoots with the Shartbama administration, with the ultimate goal of confiscating all of our guns, destroying American sovereignty and supremacy, and transforming our land into an Islamosocialist dystopia.
