TerminalEchoes: 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.

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.

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

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?

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.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: Just out of curiosity, jso2897, how do you think the future is going to unfold in the US over the next fifty years or so? The comments you've made on this thread seem to suggest that you don't share in the limitless optimism of those Farkers who believe that everything will be fine so long as the Democrats remain in power.

I know, things would be so much better if the Republicans were back in charge right?

I don't think the next 50 years are going to be as dramatic as people try to make it sound myself.

Giltric: Actually the gun nuts recognize it and say "hey, we've been giving them fish for decades now, and the problem is only getting worse. How about we try something new and teach them how to fish and see if that works" And then the people in support of modern generational welfare, vote for us, we will help you, honest injun, claim "LOL bootstraps" and nothing is ever done.

Princess Ryans Knickers: Only criminals should have background checks and be kept from having guns.. oh wait, what's that you say? He wasn't a criminal until AFTER he got the guns just like all the rest of the mass shooters?

OK, so a drunk driver only becomes a criminal AFTER he/she is caught.  Do we do some sort of DNA test to check for a predisposition to alcohol gene before we give him/her a license?  What if, they don't ever get that driver's license and go out and kill someone while drunk driving, or just mis-handling the car?

You're right, let's just ban all automobiles.

/because those bans on alcohol, cocaine and heroin made them all disappear, amiright?

js34603: Watch out we got a badass here guys. He must be part of the well regulated militia we hear so much about. Except the well regulated part, not that big on the regulations. But the tough talk and a lot of guns, he's ALL over that.

The government ought to have more and more and more guns (and bullets, of course) and the people ought to have fewer and fewer and fewer. This is because guns are inherently destructive, except in the hands of the government, in which case they become a valuable tool for enforcing the common good; and because people cannot be trusted to own guns responsibly, unless those same people manage to get a job with a government agency, in which case you can be assured they will only ever use their guns against you in your best interest. Simple really.

Cup_O_Jo: I think we need to discuss the word "mass" when it comes to shooting. I mean technically it was in  a public area and there were lots of bullets BUT--------Only 2 people were killed. So really is that mass? In my opinion it is not.

The opinion of someone who lives on socialized medicine but hates socialized medicine is probably not an opinion most people would take seriously.

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

according to this criteria. yes

The shooter took the lives of at least four people. An FBI crime classification report identifies an individual as a mass murderer-versus a spree killer or a serial killer-if he kills four or more people in a single incident (not including himself), typically in a single location.
The killings were carried out by a lone shooter. (Except in the case of the Columbine massacre and the Westside Middle School killings, both of which involved two shooters.)
The shootings occured in a public place. (Except in the case of a party in Crandon, Wisconsin, and another in Seattle.) Crimes primarily related to gang activity or armed robbery are not included.

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

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

Jared Lee Loughner would be heartbroken.
