There is a mental health treatment problem and an economic disparity problem in the United States. Gun related massacres are just a symptom. But just like the slight of western medicine, it's all about immediately silencing the symptoms rather than treating the underlying cause.

Nemo's Brother: ontariolightning: Quantum Apostrophe: The USA is a factory for making people mentally ill and arming them.

this could be stopped if healthcare was paid for by taxes. People in the US often go without seeing doctors for years when they have conditions to be treated. Its also one less thing to worry about when you lose your job.

If we export all of our illegals to Canada, how long will your health care system survive?  1, maybe 2 weeks?


you can try but our government doesnt like mexicans

Prank Call of Cthulhu: What's a "second-line parade"?


A pretty awesome event in New Orleans, where people get all dressed up and the full brass band parades around with people dancing and following along.   There is no occasion inappropriate for a second line, from a funeral to a wedding.

Anyone want to take a guess when this thread will hit a thousand posts?  I am guessing 6:15 pm EST.

ISOLATED INCIDENT.

Please ignore the preceding isolated incidents as well, please.  Otherwise, people might not be able to buy their guns as easily as they can now.

How many of your guns have the gun grabbers grabbed?


I grabbed one of my guns the other day

Man, New Orleans will have a parade for anything.

Anyone know what Kanye West thinks about this?
 
2013-05-12 04:42:42 PM
I'm pretty sure a shooting in New Orleans is not a news flash.
 
2013-05-12 04:42:49 PM

Belatryx: Oh FFS people. Can we just go one week without mass shootings?


That would be easy to do.  Lock up the libs.  They're the ones who keep shooting people.  It's almost as though it's a mental illness
 
2013-05-12 04:42:56 PM

Caradoc: hardinparamedic: Given that this was NOLA, I doubt it was mentally ill and more gangbanger.

There's a difference?


Adam Lanza didn't throw his bullets. He intended to redecorate the classroom in a lovely pink with the brainmatter of 26 kids. On the other hand, the safest place to be in a gangbanger shootout is in front of the guy he's shooting at. It's the 3 year old to the left that he's gonna hit.
 
2013-05-12 04:42:58 PM
Speaking of mass events killing people, what is gonna happen as the gun nuts march in DC with their weapons?
 
2013-05-12 04:43:01 PM
Is the gun OK? I can start a Paypal fund to make sure the gun finds a good home.
 
2013-05-12 04:43:09 PM
Nope, not gonna say it.
 
2013-05-12 04:43:16 PM
Clearly, if there would have been more guns there this wouldn't have happened.

I don't buy this spin that anyone who shoots someone is mentally ill. Are all armed robbers, rapist and any and all criminals in general mentally ill? No. It's just a diversionary tactic so you don't have to face the real problem of a gun culture out of control.

I blame its proponents who think tyranny is a transgendered dinosaur.

I'm trying to get Barbara Bush on the line. She always has compassionate insight on victims from New Orleans.

Serious question:  what's a "Second line" as discussed in the article?
 
2013-05-12 04:44:12 PM
Perhaps they should have had some mounted anti-personnel guns on the parade floats.

Should the horn section have been packing some heat, too?

Hey, gun fans, explain how this isn't anything to get freaked out over.
 
2013-05-12 04:44:21 PM
I blame the City of New Orleans permit center. How dare they issue a parade permit without requiring all participants to cary at least one primary firearm and a backup handgun.
 
2013-05-12 04:44:23 PM
if it wasn't a mothers day parade this would not even be news
 
2013-05-12 04:44:24 PM

coeyagi: Almost a million gun related deaths since the 80s, but somehow this Facebook post is relevant in the minds of right-wing deprers:

Except they go and demand that Muslims be profiled anyway. Ah, hypocrisy.

Usually they don't include a shooting.

Although this is the 7th Ward we're talking about here.

You could donate to the hardinparamedic nursing school fund, if you really wanted to help a dick find a good home.

buncha people get dressed up and dance along after the official parade, along with a brass band.  It's pretty awesome.

I think I will be calling all gun nuts "delicate flowers" from now on.

simrobert2001: Dang it people, can we NOT have a reason for the gun grabbers to grab guns for a week? Seriously, what the hell?


That's your main concern?  And then you wonder why people want to reform gun laws?

/you sound like a psycho and I would love to keep psychos from owning guns
//Good luck New Orleans, sad to hear about this

To be fair, Urban gangs do fit the literal definition of a terrorist group.

None, but that means they won't TRY.




The keyword is try, there are also those trying to turn the US into a Christian theocracy. I don't think either one has a chance in hell.

Guns don't kill people. A poor mental health system, coupled with a weak background check system and bad socioeconomic forces kill people.
 
2013-05-12 04:47:42 PM
I tell you, if that 10 year old had been packing a gun, he'd have been fine.  I blame the parents for sending him to the parade unprepared for a gun fight.
 
2013-05-12 04:47:55 PM
A gang shooting in NO.  Colored, errr...I mean... color me shocked.

You won't see the MSM cover this.
 
2013-05-12 04:47:56 PM

iq_in_binary: Watch how fast it gets buried if it turns out to be gang related.

Will Fox, MSNBC and CNN be covering this in a few hours? Will there be non-stop coverage for the next 3 days?

I'm guessing no. Nobody cares unless it's white people.


Yeah, I'm normally not one to pull the race card out right away and even try to beat it down when other people bring it up in knee-jerk ways, but I have to say seeing the lily-white Sandy Hook choir sing at the Super Bowl made me wonder if anything similar ever possibly could have organized for the minority victims that die disproportionately of gun violence every day.

Maybe in NOLA. Not every city's gangs operate like they do in The Wire, you know.

Lets wait before discussing gun control, any decision now would illogically be based on rash decision.
 
2013-05-12 04:48:59 PM
Good thing it was on Mother's Day, because people will actually care about the murders.

Browning makes the AR-15?

News to me.
