Noam Chimpsky: coeyagi: Noam Chimpsky: coeyagi: Noam Chimpsky: I blame the 2nd Amendment.

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

Are you an opponent of the 2nd Amendment? Clearly you aren't a proponent, right?

There are obviously a lot of you anti-2nd Amendment types. Why don't you start a petition to repeal it?  Grow a pair.

Come on chimpkens, work that trollrage a little harder, bro.

Why don't you anti 2nd Amendment people try to repeal it or modify the uninfringed right to keep and bear arms language? It just seems kinda gay to go after the proponents of a constitutional right while not going after the right itself.


Not really. If you have a greater than 3rd grade education, you can interpret the 2nd amendment like I do which is to mean it can be regulated, which is what we are discussing.

super_grass: Mugato: super_grass: More people will be killed by alcohol this weekend but we have the luxury of not listening to the MADD neo-prohibitionists derp about bottle size restrictions and limits on liquor proofs. Now the gun-control people are repeating the same thing and we're all quite tired of them.

Isn't there a screening of Red Dawn you could be masturbating to?

I'm not even that pro-gun, but this is just sad.

Instead of engaging in ANY exchange of ideas, people like you just jump into a thread, call names, and summarily dismiss any opposition as lunatics.

And you wonder why NRA and friends keep whopping your asses in the court system and legislature after the news cycle ends. You'll get your smug self-satisfaction, I have no doubt about that, but I'm glad to say that people like yourself will never get laws your way in the long term.


And one day we will make it illegal for people to call us flowers.

Mental health problems and gang problems are the same thing, you need to be insane to join a gang.
So it's still a mental health problem, the firearms are a part of the equation when there are mass shootings but the primary cause is crazy people thinking it's ok to kill strangers.
I'm not saying we need more or less guns, but it's easy to see we need less crazy people that think it's ok to kill strangers, so maybe it'd be ok if we sent them all to Asheville, NC, I'm sure the happy and loving vibes there would heal them all.

But you say that's BEFORE Obama got elected! How dare you mislead me, RIght!

Nope. Gun-related killings dropped below 6,000 in 2011. 6000 people in a country of 311 Million people.

But please, tell me how it's JUST a gun problem.

t3knomanser: coeyagi: Obviously, the solution is to do nothing then.

You accidentally mistyped and said something incredibly stupid that injects context to my statement that fits your preconceptions of what my statement was intended to mean, instead of taking the statement at face value.

I assume it was just a typo, and that you're not actually an idiot.

//Just kidding. I assume no such thing.


It's also funny that you didn't post the previous comments for fear that I could ass rape your logic had my comments not been reposted without the slightest bit of context, but since you're that dishonest, I won't go bother to find what you wrote.

Popcorn Johnny: ontariolightning: not free money but tax payer funded healthcare.

So gang bangers are just mad about not getting a yearly physical?


I miss when white people had gangs. They were more like sports leagues, what with names like the Sharks and the Jets. Worst thing you had to worry about with white people gangs was them breaking out into dance and song and blocking the alleyway for a few minutes.

2013-05-12 05:15:32 PM  

Slappajo: Not that any other areas in the US are segregated. They just call it something different in those areas. I think the term is "low-income housing."


Funny thing about Chicago, the low income housing you're so derisive of, actually hasn't had much crime among it's occupants. Back in the day the crime at the Cabrini Green or Robert Taylor Homes housing projects was overwhelmingly the acts of people who didn't live there. Indeed the neighborhoods with the highest crime rates back in the late 80s/early 90s and today, and today it's different neighborhoods from back then, don't have much in the way of housing projects or such.

When you grow up without a prominent father figure, it's natural for you to seek some type of acceptance and validation through another means. For urban youths, gangs often fill this void.

But let's not talk about how to go about getting black fathers to stick around and raise their kids. That's racist.

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

No, I stand by my (bold) statement, the environmental factors you list are all valid but I am sure a study of gang members would result in proof that 100/100 are batshiat crazy lunatic nutjob screwballs.

I wonder what the common denominator between New Orleans and Chicago gun violence is... Huh, can't think of anything. Oh, except guns. Lets definitely focus on the guns.

Poverty?

If you mean the extreme moral poverty of a particular subculture, then yes.

I think it's a "stomp" type march, where they do lots of tribal-type banging on unconventional objects, like trash can lids and plastic tubs and what not. I'm pretty sure this is the primary means of conflict resolution at these events.

I'm sure that if the Senate's background check bill had passed, gun violence in New Orleans would be drastically reduced, especially considering that all licensed gun dealers in Louisiana already do them.

But I'm sure it would have made it easier to identify the asshole buying Glocks in bulk and then selling them with a little premium across the state line to the guys who would pay extra to keep from having to do a background check though.

Ah, I shall explain.

Some gangs just let you walk away clean, as long as you don't get involved with the cops or with their affairs. Other gangs practice "blood out" which means when you want out, they either beat your ass within an inch of your life, or they kill you. And others, especially with females in them, will practice "booty out", which means everyone gets their turn raping your ass.

FTFY


That makes zero sense. If what you said was true then gun sales would jump after every local gangland drive-by.

Gun sales jumped after the shootings because suddenly politicians and news networks started talking about gun control. People decided to guy guns before it becomes harder/more expensive to do so.

It's the Streisand effect, not some NRA conspiracy.
