In other news, yes, apparently there was a gay pride parade in St. Pete's.

dittybopper: mike_d85: cretinbob: It's the culture of retards who masturbate over their guns that's the problem.

I've used lube called gun oil, so I'm getting a real kick out of that one.

I use moose milk to clean my flintlock.


Not sure if euphamism...

HypnozombieX:  I really hope subby is trying to be ironic or something given the current climate the only difference is that no one is likely killed or seriously wounded. The threat and intent is still very clear. Wonder if subby also sees cross burning as a simple act of arson with no other implications.


A couple months after Sandy Hook a local news station website ran in giant letters that there was a school shooting at an area school. It wasn't until you were most of the way through the second paragraph that they said it was a BB or Air Soft gun and no one was hurt.
So yes, in this climate that has been largely driven by the media and their need for you to watch and be terrified 24/7, we should consider every act of violence as someone trying to wipe out humanity.

Actually, all three feel like cheap toys compared to a real farkin' rifle:

I would like to remind folks that just because your 'toy' doesn't do much damage still doesn't give you license to be a dick.

Cythraul: Police arrested Cornelius Davis, 20, of St. Petersburg on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Okay, so obviously this guy is a douche. But aggravated battery with a 'deadly weapon?' Isn't that a bit extreme considering it was a BB gun?


No.

Granted this was probably a crappy crossman, but their are bb guns capable of killing.

Bravo Two: And once again, the conversation of gun violence is diluted, first by my side screaming about THEY TOOK ER GERNS...then by their side screaming ERMGERD ALL GUN ERNERS ER CRERZER!...then by the media amping the Hysteria to 11 with "ZERMAGERD KERDS URSING SQUIRT GERNS GERN VERLENCE!"

Seriously, all issues about gun control vs. gun ownership aside, how about we ramp down the hysterics and emotional masturbation on both sides of the fence and disconnect the death of people from the immediate need to classify it as violence X? Too many people die every day for us to fragment our efforts to stop violent behavior by attacking only the tools or the imagery and not the cancer that causes it.

/So sick and tired of the grandstanding over guns-this and violence-that, when not one goddamn person who claims to want to stop violence is adopting poor families in blighted neighborhoods and getting them out of their slums and into a better situation. Bloomberg -- you wanna stop violence? Find a way to give a better life to the people that turn to drugs, violence, and crime because they have no other options. Might make more of a difference than becoming a pseudofascist trying to control the behavior of others.
//You can't fight free will. No one will ever do as you say, no matter what. The only way to make a person change is make them WANT to change, and the only way you can make them WANT to change is by giving them options that appeal to them to become better people to achieve it.
///Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day -- then resents you because you didn't change his life, you just fed him once, and he now has to be dependent on you because he can't do shiat on his own. Teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime, and he'll be more prosperous because he learned something that he can then do himself and feel pride in. A man wants to be a better person and earn his keep and achieve his goals through his actions. Being given things only destroys the sense of pride and value ...


You are the only one that sounds hysterical to me.

No, it's a 10 to 1 mixture of water and water soluble oil.  Looks like milk, hence the name.

So it was the media that charged him with "aggravated battery with a deadly weapon"?
I think not.

bungle_jr: having been shot at the age of 9 at point blank range with a pellet from a gun that had been pumped like 10 times, and still having a tiny, somewhat noticeable scar in the middle of my chest at the age of 37, i can reasonably say that getting shot with a bb may sting slightly. PANIC!


I and a friend used to go through half a phone book with one.

Yeah, but what if the BB was infected with swine flu?  And what if he then passed on the swine flu to A CHILD!!!!!
 
2013-07-01 02:15:38 PM  
The charge is appropriate.  The perp (allegedly...) did this solely out of hatred for something that does not harm him in any way.  Despite his claims about "the children" those children aren't going to catch gay from seeing some guys letting their freak flags fly.  He's fortunate nobody got crazy and charged him with terrorism.  He was using violence to attempt to scare people from engaging in legal behavior, even if that violence was both pathetic and amusing.

the purpose of GAY PRIDE PARADES is to INCITE hatred.  but NOT to SPARK VIOLENCE.  WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!!

But it wasn't in any way *LETHAL* violence, and he is charged with the following:

Police arrested Cornelius Davis, 20, of St. Petersburg on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Now, you can call me old-fashioned, or a traditionalist, or whatever, but when you charge someone with a crime, it should fit with what they actually *DID*.  Now, you shoot someone in the leg with a .22 LR?  Yep, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon would fit.   You ping someone in the leg with a BB gun on the other hand, like we used to do as kids to each other all the time*, then I'm sorry, that charge just isn't appropriate.  Maybe aggravated battery.  But with a deadly weapon?  That's the kind of inflated charge that I, as a juror, would laugh at the prosecution for bringing.  After I was seated.  I'd be appropriately solemn during voir dire, of course.


*We wore safety goggles, of course.  Wouldn't want to lose an eye.

I was five when I got my hands on my dad's bb gun (he kept it by the front door to scare of cats that used to hunt the chipmunks that lived in the front yard) and used it to shoot the neighbor kid in the head.

/idk if I should get a kick outta this or not

schoolbread: Not sure if that is actually your pic, but if so the "Don't tread on me flag" is an especially nice touch.


Especially since it appears to be on the floor... You know, where one might "tread on" it... Quite the mixed message you're sending, ditty!

/Now, I really want to own a "Don't tread on me" doormat, purely for the lulz...

That *WOULD* be funny.

Thing is, I tried to take that picture with the flag up on the wall, but the other stuff kept falling to the floor.
