My buddy was a witness to this shooting. He's pretty shaken up about it.
 
2013-03-13 08:28:02 PM
Between this and the CA gun thread a few down I suspect we will be witnessing a mass goalpost migration.
 
2013-03-13 08:29:16 PM
Well it had been literal HOURS since the last gun thread so it was bound to happen.

You mean all those draconian gun control laws didn't work?
 
2013-03-13 08:30:55 PM
But...guns!

It's not like the counter was set high anyway. 2 days isn't a long time.... Oh wait... you didn't realize that 11 were shot in inner-city and predominately black DC two days ago? Link

America doesn't have a gun problem. America has a problem with white folk getting shot.
 
2013-03-13 08:32:16 PM
Did the gunman use a Glock AK-15 assault missle with high capacity clip?
 
2013-03-13 08:32:26 PM
so... 4 people is a mass shooting now?
 
2013-03-13 08:32:30 PM
But I was assured guns don't kill people.

They don't. Bullets do.  Well, technically, the lack of oxygenated blood getting to the proper organs, tissue damage, and infection do.

Wow. That cop is FABULOUS.

Yogimus: so... 4 people is a mass shooting now?


Four Dead. EMS1 is reporting 6 in critical condition, some others are wounded.

To avoid turning this into a debate, my thoughts go out to the family and people involved in this shooting. And to the Responders, Trauma team, and people caring for these victims.

Been following this story on the local news outlets here in Utica, was wondering how long it'd take to show up on here.
 
2013-03-13 08:34:48 PM
The fact that this is basically considered "background noise" in the USA is telling, isn't it?
 
2013-03-13 08:35:07 PM
it's just like marijuana.
hitting your head against on the wall, etc..

Seriously...This is nothing for anyone to get bent out of shape about. Come on, it's just four people. People get shot every day. Why all this sensationalism?

Guns don't, bullets do.

But generally, people kill people.  What tool they use is a different topic.
 
2013-03-13 08:35:20 PM
I'm just glad to see the cop running with the shotgun didn't have his finger on the trigger.
 
2013-03-13 08:35:22 PM
If everyone wore a personal force shield, this wouldn't be an issue.
 
2013-03-13 08:35:41 PM
Locked down a college?  A shooting happens at a freaking barber shop off campus, and they force adults who are going deep into debt for their education to be locked in a room?

Treating adults like children?  Priceless.

He shot at least 12 people, does it not count as a mass shooting if only four die?

Ah, ok. My reading comprehension was a bit sub-par as I was skimming the story.

Herkimer? I've spent some time in Utica a few years ago. It never occurred to me that something like this would happen in Central New York.

Better than getting sued by one of the parents of those "adults who are going deep into debt" for not trying to protect them when the shooter decided to wander onto campus.

How is it not a problem because people get shot every day?

I mean, that seems really farked up that because we lose almost 20k people to gun violence (excluding suicde) every year that it somehow simply doesn't matter that 4 people are dead, six are in critical condition, and several others got transported with non-life threatening injuries. 4, 40, whatever... we're slowly flushing our future away with mindless violence.

Agreed. The problem isn't guns but rather a lack of general civility between Americans. Take away the guns and we'll just start stabbing each other. Take away the knives and there'll be a run on baseball bats.

You have to draw the line somewhere.  I propose 10 dead and at least 25 wounded for qualification.

Obviously Americans don't care about that shooting. If they did it would have been covered in a national newspaper that reported daily events.

/they'd probably call it The U.S. Today or something like that

Exactly. Guns aren't more dangerous than any other object.

That's why the Marines gave up firearms years ago. They now carry golf clubs. It's saved the taxpayer millions.
 
2013-03-13 08:46:37 PM
It's always dangerous when everybody's sleeping

So 4 = mass now? In what Catholic church did you get shiat out from subby?   Or was this in Massachusetts?

Yup. These are the lessons we get to learn from the "FU got mine" generation (for clarity, I'm referring to Boomers). Young adults, especially males, who are looking into their future and not very optimistic, tend to make the future not so optimistic for everyone else.

Haha libs!! Only four people innocent people were murdered so guns are awesome!

I was intentionally keeping my sarcasm turned down as low as possible.

And what happens if they take away the internets. WHAT THEN???

How long has it been since we've gone  twelve hourswithout a mass shooting?

Am I the only one who read the headline and thought - 'omg - someone shot the new pope'...
