ox45tallboy: With only two victims, I guess we don't have to reset the "mass shooting" clock.


If only we could find the particle that gives shootings mass.

Jesus would have used an AR-15 instead of an AK-47 because he was NOT a godless commie.

AdolfOliverPanties: We need to arm all students.


Or, hear me out here, we could amputate all students' arms.  Give 'em back after they graduate.  I bet it's hard to hit things with, like, toe guns and stuff.

We should definitely arm teachers, because they are incompetent in every way. So we should trust them with guns. Cut their pay, though, because they don't deserve to be rich of us taxpayers.

Really?  I thought they were just a variation on these:

pedrop357: Blah blah blah.  We have a violence problem, of which guns are a part.  How do we solve the violence problem?


STFU, loser. I'm busy watching hours and hours of television and movies that have violent heroes that can do things I wish I could do, along with comedies where everyone is more popular and more loved than I am, dotted with advertisements telling me how much I suck because I don't spend my money on the right products, and I need to be more competitive and aggressive in my lifestyle. All of this is important to determining my self-worth and expectations.

I don't have time to worry about cultural causes of violence.

fark THIS: A YEAR AGO A BLACK GETTING SHOT IN THE INNER CITY ATLANTA WOULD NOT BE NEWSWORTHY

NOW THAT THEY WANT TO MANIPULATE THE CONSENT OF THE MASSES TO BAN CERTAIN FIREARMS, BLACK YOUTH'S GETTING KILLED IS NOW NEWSWORTHY

I DONT WANT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET ANYMORE

highendmighty: Noticeably F.A.T.: whidbey: Guns are not like any other item on this planet.

Bull honkey.

whidbey: They should be held to the highest standard of responsibility.

How do you make something theft-proof?

Stimulate the economy by legislating biometric triggers on all existing firearms.  It wouldn't be theft proof, or insane-wielder proof, but it would prevent the unauthorized use.  Expensive?  Yes.  More valuable than innocent human lives?  We've spent more money on less noble causes...


Anyone know how to root a Glock 17?

ambassador_ahab: AdolfOliverPanties: We need to arm all students.

only solution.  The only thing that stops a a Bad Guy with a gun is a Good Guy with a gun.



The other effective solution is to throw waves of children at the bad guy till he runs out of bullets. Brannigans war strategy for children.

whidbey: iheartscotch: Seriously! Stop reporting this shiat! It just spawns copycats.

Also; can we admit that guns are inanimate objects that wouldn't function without people?

It isn't a gun control issue; it's a PEOPLE control issue. Until you can ensure that everyone aren't going to become murderous sociopaths; you're just ignoring the actual issue

Yeah buh-buh I don't want Obummer to raise my taxes any more. Welfare DEADBEATS.
HURRR.


Ah I see; banana, wildebeest, snorkel. Does that clear up my position?

grxymkjbn: Gun fetishists agree:  More guns = more safety.  Therefore, infinite number of guns = infinite amount of safety.

MORE GUNS - unless you HATE SAFETY!

ox45tallboy: Relatively Obscure: Plus it's not very catchy.

There's a 14-year old kid in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head, and probably a couple of very distraught parents or other family members, and I'm considering making a joke about it because I'm becoming so jaded.

I'm not in favor of gun control, but this is just getting ridiculous. Is there any solution out there which:

1.) Doesn't force everyone to hand in all of their guns
2.) Doesn't put kids further at risk by putting more guns in schools

and

3.) At least lowers the frequency and number of victims of gun violence.

I know there is no magic solution which will eliminate it, but how can we at least reduce it enough so that I'm not tempted to make jokes about a 14-year-old kid fighting for his life after being shot in the head while at school, exactly where he's supposed to be?


Pre-shoot all the kids. No one wants to shoot a kid that's already been shot.
Freedom isn't free.

You sound like you want to arm criminals and terrorists... why do you hate Family Values and want to be Soft on Crime?
