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.

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.

THE RIGHT IS THE ONLY right with a built in limitation! Why dont we just enforce the limitation,Noam Derpsky?

/The Supreme Court has ruled "the right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose"

//shove that up the ass of 2nd Amendment Deniers - those who think the 2nd Amendment means they can do anything...
///kinda like the right to happiness means we can self-administer any drug we want to achieve happiness, right?
///the slashies compel you to stop and think!

 the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.


So do you think private citizens should be allowed to own nuclear weapons? If not, you're already 'infringing' on that right, since 'arms' is defined as 'weapons'. Not just 'firearms'.

So unless you think private citizens should be able to own nukes, we're just negotiating the level of infringement.

radarlove: Being in a gang has nothing to do with looking for a father figure.  It has everything to do with trying to survive in a world with such severe income disparity that you are forced to cast aside any semblance of human empathy and become a sociopath just so that you can live another day.


I believe there is sociopathy, but it is not caused by lack of money. There have been many, many kind and noble persons who were not wealthy. Jesus said that you cannot serve both God and mammon (money).

Our policies of selfishness and our apathetic and unsympathetic attitudes toward our brothers and sisters turn our brothers and sisters into violent animals.

Creating welfare benefits and Medicare/Medicaid was a selfish policy? Maybe it was. It made it possible for young girls to emancipate and get enough money to live on without working. All they had to do was slut themselves out and pop out a bastard at the earliest opportunity. Then they found out they could get a few more dollars a month for every new child so they bred as many brats as they could, children that they did not want, and often abused, beat, starved, or kicked out of the house to survive in the streets all day. That is the real source of the sociopathy, if you ask me.  And the males who knocked them up were encouraged to be absent by the very same welfare policies that would cut the baby mama's benefits if there was any responsible male around, giving her any money or helping her in any way. And if they got married, benefits would be cut even further if not cut off entirely. So maybe the welfare state of giving away free money is apathetic and unsympathetic after all. Or rather, welfare policies meant well, but the system was gamed by those sociopathic animals you mention, creating generations of abused unwanted fatherless kids who were not raised right and became violent.

Shoot a dear with an automatic assault rifle and see how well the meat turns out.


You can't go into a gun store and walk out with an automatic assault rifle, no matter how much you try and pass that myth off it doesn't change the fact that it NEVER HAPPENS. The only way you're getting your hands on an automatic assault rifle is with a thorough background check, and investigation into your character by the local CLEO, surrendering your fourth amendment rights, sending in fingerprint cards, and getting approved by BATFE to own it via the NFA tax stamp process.

There are thousands upon thousands of homes with NFA weapons in this country and not a single one of those NFA controlled weapons has been used in a crime. Ever. Never ever. Not since the establishment of the NFA.

So you can take this bullshiat rhetoric that you can go buy an automatic assault rifle at the local gun shop and go take a flying fark at a rolling donut.

Founding Father 3: Of course it's clear, every American has the right to hang a pair of bear arms on their wall. How could that possibly be misconstrued?


Pretty sure if the founding fathers looked forward in time, they would have put a little more definition in the 2nd. Highly doubt they wanted to secure the right for people to be able to walk around carrying guns that have enough firepower to kill a small gathering of people in a matter of a few seconds. Of course, they also revered intellect, knowledge and reason... things that, if not long lost, have become detested in this country.

No, it isn't. A second line is an old term from jazz funeral processions. The first line leads the funeral and leads the walking procession. The casket then the mourners follow and the second line is at the end, but it plays upbeat celebratory music. Second line parades are pretty popular on holidays in some neighborhoods in New Orleans.

Mr.BobDobalita: TheShavingofOccam123:


Fighting gun control isn't about reducing gun violence. It's about selling memberships to the NRA with their jack-booted, uniformed security officers (you know, the ones LaPierre had rough up reporters at a press conference). It's about selling NRA bumper stickers, NRA bench rests, NRA caps, vests, boots, pantaloons, plus-fours, knee-highs, thigh-highs, ankle-highs, edible undies, sunglasses, trusses, ear wax removal kits, sewing kits, and anything else an NRA logo can be glued to in some factory in China.

I'm always amazed by the people who claim the NRA has such ridiculous super powers.  How in the world could an organization with only 4-5 million members put a stranglehold on washington as the anti-gunners claim?

There is more than a good chunk of people who consider the NRA to stand for "Negotiating Rights Away".


Here's an example of the NRA strangling Washington. The renewal of the Patriot Act was held up until just a few hours before the act expired, due to a couple of amendments:

Paul agreed to let the bill go forward after he was given a vote on two amendments to rein in government surveillance powers. Both were soundly defeated. The more controversial, an amendment that would have restricted powers to obtain gun records in terrorist investigations, was defeated 85-10 after lawmakers received a letter from the National Rifle Association stating that it was not taking a position on the measure.

Don't ask the President for input but for god's sakes make sure you check with the NRA before you vote. Dollar bill, dollar bill, dollar bill.

There's rich sociopaths, too. Who do you think was more of a sociopath, Bernie Madoff or Mother Theresa? Anyway, does anyone think you can cure a sociopathic gangbanger with money? Like a gangbanger is gonna settle down and become Ward Cleaver if you "give" him a "living wage"?  Gangbangers are probably richer than the working man already. Drugs and pimping are profitable, they pay no taxes, and housing is real cheap in their neighborhood. Real bad neighborhoods, you could buy a nice house for like 5,000. Gangbangers can probably clear 5,000 in a weekend. Bet the working man isn't earning the price of a house in a weekend.

-------------

Which is still only 1/3 the total amount of people killed by firearms every year.


Meanwhile, there are 80,000 alcohol-related deaths every year in this country.  And unlike guns, alcohol has absolutely zero utility, and alcohol consumption isn't even in the Bill of Rights.

Quantum Apostrophe: The USA is a factory for making people mentally ill and arming them.


"Mentally ill" is a poor excuse for bad behavior. The truly mentally ill are no more prone to violence than the normal population. In fact they are more at risk of being the victims of violence.

"Mental illness" is not a catch all excuse for violence. It does not explain why completely sane individuals commit violent acts. It does not explain why perfectly rational people wage large scale war. Horrific acts of abuse and violence are committed every day by people in their right minds, thinking rationally, without regard for the welfare and feelings of others.

Mental illness is less a risk factor for violence than being a young male, an alcoholic, a substance abuser, or even being poor.

Being "angry" is not mental illness.

Mental health care is a real problem in this nation. We have some of the highest incidence in the world of untreated mental illness. It needs to be addressed in health care reform and socio-cultural changes. Blaming these incidents on mental illness is a disservice to that problem.

That said, damn, some of you idiots aren't helping. The amount of vitrol and rhetoric is outpacing the actual information and even the snark on an exponential level.


The NRA and its strictest adherents' level of crazy and retarded derp can be easily explained by the fact that the NRA is now a de facto base stroking organ of the Republican Party. They stopped representing gun owners over a decade ago.

You're completely right, Hebalo.

It does mean nothing.

Gun violence like this rarely has to do purely with firearm ownership or ubiquity; it has more to do with either A) mental health problems or B) engrained social problems that stem back decades from conditions that rarely existed outside of the US (poor immigrants, racism, etc.).

There are places in the US where firearms ownership is through the roof and very little gun violence occurs. Then, you have urban neighborhoods where legal firearm ownership is often low, but gun violence is a common occurrence. Seems like it's a little more complex than "blame the gun".

Hardly. You just have to be an impressionable teenager raised in a culture of quick money and violent glory, and feel alienated and like you need a "crew" to run with.

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.


Ah.  All gangs are black and no black fathers stick around.  Got it.  I'll just go tell MS-13 (can't tell me Mexicans aren't all about family), the Triads, the Mafia, the neo-nazis and white supremacist gangs, and the black Irish gangs.  Since most of their cultures place a heavy emphasis on family and parental responsibility, I'm sure they'll all be delighted to find out that their gangs don't exist.


Let me explain to you how gangs actually work-

Gang leader:  Hey kid, you live on 8th St.  Wanna join the 8th Street Crips?
Kid:  No thanks.
Gang leader:  Ookie dokie then.  *shoots kid in face or worse*


Being in a gang has nothing to do with looking for a father figure.  It has everything to do with trying to survive in a world with such severe income disparity that you are forced to cast aside any semblance of human empathy and become a sociopath just so that you can live another day.

Our policies of selfishness and our apathetic and unsympathetic attitudes toward our brothers and sisters turn our brothers and sisters into violent animals.

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.

Had they been any other race we would have gone in full-derp mode and tear ourselves apart with loud, obnoxious debates for weeks on end with nothing to show for it. If they were black it would be treated just like any other local crime, the perps won't get national attention, and the victims' families would be left to grieve in peace.

Anti-gun "humor".

Your vice kills more people, it's just more spread out and less publicized. But now you have a name to call other people to shut down debate so you can be shielded from it all, so I guess that's a win for your side.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Mrtraveler01: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: BalugaJoe: normal day in Chicago.

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?

That's gotta be it. That's probably why West Virginia has just as much gun violence as New Orleans and Chicago.


Equality. Most people in WV have similar incomes and are the mostly same ethnicity.

Yeah. When they have statements like "Three young men were seen fleeing the scene" it's probably not a Aurora or Newtown type deal. Looking at the photo's it certainly appears to be a pretty poor area which is also where you're going to find gang activity.

Just as likely to be a copycat of Sandy Hook as of the Tsarnevs.

Now, in case y'alls clicker fingers are busted, it's a New Orleans tradition of following the brass band, often hosted by clubs and local orgs.  Similar to the jazz funeral, it's a glorious excuse to be funky.

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.

A lot of recent shootings in NOLA have found to not be gang-related. Unfortunately, they've been committed by youngsters just out to create havoc. There's structural violence there and the reasoning behind such crimes is not always easy to discern.
