aarkwilde: burnvictim: fanbladesaresharp: wildcardjack: This is what happens when soul deadening office work causes men to place too much emphasis on the minor athletic achievements of their children.

It's Vallejo. There is no office work there. It's just soul deadening useless flatland gang territory. And those soul deadening cheery folks have been invading Humboldt county to the north for years. It's not the guns, it's complete degenerates of society that find ways to fark up life....at little league games.

Listen douchebag, Vallejo is not flatland.

Truth.  I live on a hill.  We have lots of hills.

/I may live here, but I HATE Vallejo.


Cool man, lived there for a few years myself. In Fairfield now so, I'm in the same boat.

Yeah, keep focusing on the handful of crazies when there's 150,000,000 gun owners who were entirely responsible.  Now let's hear how we need to take cars away because somewhere in a country of 310,000,000 people, some jealous woman just ran over her boyfriend after a fight.

Ah, poor baby. Truth hurts huh? Maybe if you actually listened to the real Jesus instead of the Satanic Republican Jesus you wouldn't have all these shootings.

"Little League of America" baseball is an abomination.

How about a little gun self control?  Why the hell would you need to bring a gun to a little league baseball game? Seriously.

Bozo should get a reckless charge and lose the right to own permanently for five years, then have to take and pass safety courses before being able to get a new one.


Fixed.

Douchebag had his shot and farked it up.  I wouldn't even trust him with a marshmallow shooter.

THIS.  The problem isn't guns, the problem is some arbitrary thing we can point at within a 20-yard radius of the shooting.

Princess Ryans Knickers: How the NRA slowed the boston bomber investigation


That article is a crock of shat.  It's fine to be opposed to the NRA, but at least keep it rational.  The leaps in logic in the article are huge.  First, it assumes that NRA opposition is the only thing that kept a law requiring tags in gunpowder to be passed.  Then it assumes that the bombers would have made use of tagged gunpowder for their explosive of choice.  Then it assumes that after the bombs went off, crime scene techs would have been able to identify the tags rapidly.  Then it assumes that in a world with tagged gunpowder, the tags would be precise enough to pinpoint a single sale.  Then it assumes that the records associated with that sale would point directly to the bombers.  And then it assumes that all of that would have been accomplished and ID'd the suspects faster than they already were... and therefore it's the NRA's fault that the MIT security guard got killed.

Heck, by the article's reasoning, everyone who's ever opposed any level of government surveillance is guilty of helping the bombers.

The article actually makes it sound like it's the tail end of the season, says that it cancelled "at least a dozen games." Unless that's per team, that's not much at all.

Idiots like this are going to give rise to an entire generation of gun control advocates if they keep shooting up places where kids go. Good luck sharing your love of guns with the kids whose game you ruined.

Seems about middle of the road, at least it's single digit fatalities. Arkansas is pretty funny.

I grew up in Vallejo. It used to be a half- nah, it's always been a shiathole. It got worse after I graduated from high school in 2000. When people ask where I'm from, I always say Benicia.

I would say he loses it for life and my position on freedom is pretty well known. I'm very "pro gun" in that I think pretty much everyone should own one and know how to operate it safely. Hell, I did eight years as a Marine and I still think they should lose it for life.

Notable exception is that in some states you can petition the governor (as a felon) for your right to bear arms to be restored. Depending on the length of time (plan on 10 years) and the nature of the crime (certainly nonviolent and certainly not with a firearm I suspect) they may grant the right. It is not the same as a pardon and I forget its legal name. The crime is still on your record and I believe the right is only restored within the borders of that state. My source of information was a lawyer, I don't know more than that.

Either way, I say they take a firearm from them for life. There can be no second chances with gun violations. Unless, of course, you want to talk about never taking the right away, regardless... I could discuss that comfortably. Nobody would agree. If I were to approach it like that (and I do believe in a society with laws so even I would have my doubts about this much freedom) then I'd point out that we already have laws that cover bad behavior. We could increase the penalty for violating any of those laws with a gun and increase them even more for a second offense.

In reality I'd say that the risk outweighs the benefit of the increased rights and that society would have to adjust to a lot more people moving around armed probably . Hmm... I guess I could argue in favor of that and even advocate that it will reach a point of equilibrium and that the freedom would be worth the risk of increased violence.

Yeah, I could argue it and feel comfortable with myself afterwards but a long topic.

Anyhow, I respectfully disagree. I think that they should lose their right to possess a firearm for the remainder of their life. (If I were ruler of the galaxy my starting point for increasing freedom would not be firearms.) So, yeah. I'd suggest they lose it for life and that the only way they could ever get it back would be with an individual review on a personal level (I understand there are lawyers, letters, letters of recommendation from the community, and maybe interviews involved in the current process and that it is a pretty rare thing for them to grant.) and like the idea of the governor actually being the person to decide it though I suppose a judge might be acceptable to me too.

How appropriate that they call it the NRA's Maginot Line. The gun grabbers are Nazis... ;)

So isn't this a perfect example of why we should have mandatory registration of firearms?  Obviously, this incompetent gun owner needs to have his guns confiscated before he hurts or kills someone, but if his guns aren't registered, how are we going to know if we got them all?

Perhaps, still why cancel the rest of the season for one single incident? Just seems to be a little over the top in the stupid department.
