I personally do not associate guns with violence. I have never pointed a gun at another human an never intend to. Guns are tools, for hunting and target shooting. That is what many of them were designed for and what the very vast majority get used for.

And my RPG has never been aimed at improper targets. I only blow up junked cars on the weekend. I am just angry I have to to to Liberia to do it. I want the right to blow up junk cars in the United States with an RPG.

I am tired of my personal freedoms being restricted.

Amos Quito: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Amos Quito: this gentleman likely did NOT have the legal right to possess firearms AT ALL

Cite?

Did you notice the word likely in the above sentence?

And is there something wrong with YOUR CITE - according to which this clown walked outside his house in 2004 and shot out the tires of a construction worker's vehicle because he didn't like where they parked and "said they had "disrespected him"???

Not sure where you think you are going with this, but if he wasn't recognized as a dangerous lunatic and prohibited from legally possessing firearms after that incident, I don't know who would be. And if he wasn't, then the Seattle cops farked up big-time, as did the navy, who allowed him to join 3 years later, apparently FAILING to do research of public records that any simpleton could perform in an afternoon.

In any case, we know that possession of firearms sans a nearly impossible to get "permit" is illegal in DC, don't we?

We need more gun laws, because if only this clown had obeyed the existing law(s), none of this would have happened.


This really got me.

Seattle is so anti-gun it is not Farking funny. Why did they let him go?

Kerliskowski (sic), our nation turns it's angry eye towards you.

win95o: Godscrack: Thank goodness we have all these spy drones watching us, NSA eavesdropping and thousands of public/street cameras everywhere to spot these mass shooters before they strike.

Newsflash:  Contrary to the repeated assertions, NSA is a foreign intelligence agency and doesn't actually spy on Americans.  Also, I don't think anyone believes that CC cameras are intended to stop mass shootings, but they're useful for evidence after a crime has been committed.


That's the stupidest statement I've ever read.

How about VA?


Good point!

What about the Veteran's Administration?

Various news sources are saying that the shooter suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. What did the VA do for him?

We spend BILLIONS for bombs, but don't spend SQUAT for those that suffer the physical and emotional injury.

The most chilling thing I learned from undernova's post is that situations of random multiple shootings can bring about immediate repercussions.

Suppose the scene is "secured" by personnel who don't have the highest training for such a task, and an innocent bystander twitches funny. There's another casualty.
 
2013-09-17 12:55:25 AM  

Bill the unknowing: Radioactive Ass: As to people wondering why there were so few armed people around, it's a shipyard not a full blown base (nit that that would really matter as very few people are kept armed on bases stateside other than a very few sentries at fixed locations. NAVSEA is an engineering department although they do deal with designing and procuring weapons systems but there are no actually functioning weapons systems there. Ships offload any ordnance before they go into the yards and the shipyard takes joint ownership of the ship with most of the crew sent off to other commands. Essentially they end up with about a quarter of the crew staying behind to maintain security watches (sans weapons other than perhaps a nightstick), fire watches and to observe testing of repairs by the shipyard.

Correction.  It WAS a NAVY Base years ago.  It is called the Navy Yard, because that is what it was YEARS ago.  The Navy moved NAVSEA into this location to consolidate it's program management from a lot of different locations throughout the Beltway.  They used the old Navy Yard as it was cost effective (dilapidated, in a run-down part of town, cheap to buy and rebuild - they shoved out a bunch of poor folks to buy the land and re-build) and then took some of the old buildings and worked some of the old architecture into the new design - pretty nice.  I've worked with a group that is housed within that building.

It is only a complex of offices - essentially, it is where the US Navy has a lot of it's Program decision makers who determine ship designs, project costs and budgets, determine what gets funded and what doesn't.  It's not filled with sailors and folks wearing firearms.  A fair amount of officers who work with the programs to provide guidance, but no mission planning going on here.  Just a bunch of civil servants - the kind that no one seems to miss if they furlough them.....

The poor bastards.....

Magorn: T-Servo: Arkanaut: Are we sure about the name this time, or is this going to end up being a mistaken identity thing again?

The FBI is confirming the name at a press conference right now.

Since he's dead they had plenty of time to ID him as well.  Also find the reports of Multiple shooters HIGHLY unlikely at this point and bet they will end up being Fog of battle type stuff


fingers crossed there wasn't multiple shooters. Given that it's business as usual here in DC, no security warnings, and a total lack of helicopters overhead with search lights, believe that is the case. There is definitely an upswing in police presence, had five cop cars clustered at 21st and M while I was at work (scaring all the tourists) and just had one drive down the alley behind my apt in Woodley Park for the first time. But seems to be no real concern for shooter at large

Yeah, Kittypie070, I know what Feignstein's "history with being around people getting shot" is.

But apparently you don't.

Feignstein happened to be in an office complex when "San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who were shot and killed in San Francisco City Hall by former Supervisor Dan White on November 27, 1978".

White, a FORMER POLICE OFFICER used his SERVICE REVOLVER to murder Moscone and Milk. For the firearm illiterate, a REVOLVER is a pistol - six-shooter (in this case) to murder the mayor and the councilman who displaced him.

Feignstein was one of the first on the scene - having heard the shots, etc.

The chum that YOU have been eating tells you that THIS "traumatic experience" is the impetus that drives Feignstein in her quest for GUN CONTROL.

Except that it's bullshiat.

Feignstein knows DAMN WELL that the VAST majority of murders committed here in the US are committed with HANDGUNS (you know, the kind that Dan White used to murder Milk and Moscone in Feignstein's presence) yet the FalseFaced biatch is NOT going after handguns - which pose the greatest threat to public safety - The Mummy is hell-bent on doing away with ASSAULT RIFLES - which pose the greatest threat to GOVERNMENT TYRANNY.

Here's a little graphic for yaz - courtesy of ME and the FBI:

i1121.photobucket.com


Like any conniving wannabe oligarch, Feignstein (and her pals) want to disarm the peasantry - not "for their own good" or in the interest of "public safety", but to ensure that the peasants are unable to offer resistance to their increasing oppression.

It's what they do.

Do you know WHO ELSE wishes that his populace was unarmed and helpless?

www.nndb.com

Yeah, you BET he does.

And right now, Obama, Feignstein and their pals are ARMING those who oppose Assad - but they're NOT arming them with REVOLVERS like Dan White used to murder Mayor Moscone and Harvey Milk - they're arming them with ASSAULT RIFLES - the kind that both Obey and Feignstein want to BAN here in the US.

Why?

Because while handguns make fine murder weapons, they are practically USELESS in a revolution/warfare scenario where one is trying to oppose oppressive tyranny.

Feignstein and her pals do NOT have public safety in their little scheming heads. They mean to deprive the peasantry of any means to resist.

Curl up around that and sleep on it, Kittypie070.

A little while after 9/11--I think it was during the PATRIOT Act debates--Republicans fought to allow people on the terror watch list to buy firearms.

Innocent till proven guilty is a concept liberals despise.

you are an idiot if you think a bunch of civilians armed with assault rifles poses any threat whatsoever to the government in any real way.  Short of the entire US Military staging a coup, there is no internal threat of armed rebellion inside the united states being successful.  If you think that is plausible, you're probably too stupid to act responsibly with firearms and therefore you probably shouldn't have them.

It was for Seattle. Too bad saying a guy isn't allowed to own a gun doesn't prevent him from using a gun if he manages to acquire one anyway. Which is why gun-free zones are a sham, and a dangerous sham at that.

But the left isn't going to let go of their ideology, and eventually they'll will probably try to do another "Fast and Furious" end run around existing weapon laws to "prove" that the only two options are to give up on democracy and impose absolute authoritarian dictatorship under their initially benevolent rule, or for us all to die in a hail of gunfire at the hands of heavily armed criminals.

Apparently Dianne Feignstein, Obama and pals see civilians armed with assault rifles as a "threat". Why else would they be working SO HARD to ban a class of weapon that is used in less than 2% of all US homicides annually?

Are Feignstein and Obama "idiots"?? (rhetorical question, obviously)

In the 30 years through March, 78 public mass shootings occurred in the U.S. -- incidents in which four or more people were killed at random by a gunman killing indiscriminately, according to a report issued that month by the Congressional Research Service.

The mass slaughters listed in the report caused the deaths of 547 people. Over the same three decades through 2012, that's less than a tenth of 1 percent of the 559,347 people the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates were murdered in America.

Giltric: In the 30 years through March, 78 public mass shootings occurred in the U.S. -- incidents in which four or more people were killed at random by a gunman killing indiscriminately, according to a report issued that month by the Congressional Research Service.

The mass slaughters listed in the report caused the deaths of 547 people. Over the same three decades through 2012, that's less than a tenth of 1 percent of the 559,347 people the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates were murdered in America.

It's almost enough to make one question the motives of those who wish to ban "assault weapons".

Almost.

But as usual, most Farkers are too busy with their emotionally fueled spasmic knee-jerking to pay attention to facts.

MFAWG: That shiat was awesome..


I bought a 12-round Street Sweeper for $40 cash.

I had to go down to the permit dept, and walked right by it.

I sauntered down to an ATM, but by the time I got back, it was packed up.

unamused: No Line For Beer: unamused: howdoibegin: What a dumb country. Yes, only if you're all sitting at your desks with guns and have put a personal interest into being proficient with firearms will your country be safe. Sounds like a great country! American exceptionalism at its best.

There are roughly 190 other countries.  Pick one.  Stay the fark in it.

Pick one of the other 189 if your ideals are so easily threatened.

The ideals that founded the country are my ideals, Nancy.  Crybaby candy-asses keep whining about how America isn't as good as other "civilized" countries are.  There is no need for you to turn this country into a third world shiat hole when there are already plenty for you to choose from.  Delta is ready when you are.


I can help him renounce his citizenship, it is an government process, and therefore somewhat difficult, but hey, helping  'Murica haters wanting to leave is an idea whose time has come.

One day after the shooting and NOT A SINGLE thread on the main page for Tuesday about this.  Wonder if it's because the "AR-15 scary weapon" frothing has been debunked.  Fark mods helping to slowly bury the story, I guess.

/You better believe, had the AR-15 angle been legit there would be multiple anti-assault weapon threads going on the main page.

blindio: you are an idiot if you think a bunch of civilians armed with assault rifles poses any threat whatsoever to the government in any real way.  Short of the entire US Military staging a coup, there is no internal threat of armed rebellion inside the united states being successful.  If you think that is plausible, you're probably too stupid to act responsibly with firearms and therefore you probably shouldn't have them.


Um...Iraq and Afghanistan would like to have a word with you.

And both political parties disagree with you, have stated so, and are acting accordingly.
Step up and try again.

Amos Quito: vrax: When the fark are we planning on overthrowing the US government? Do you honestly see that as being a realistic solution to any of our problems any time in our foreseeable future?! If it gets to that point, the country isn't going to be worth saving.


I don't know about you, but I'm not planning to "overthrow" anything - god forbid.

Try thinking of it as deterrence to tyranny - a reason for would-be tyrants to think twice.

Apparently Dianne Feignstein, Obama and pals see civilians armed with assault rifles as a "threat". Why else would they be working SO HARD to ban a class of weapon that is used in less than 2% of all US homicides annually?

Are Feignstein and Obama "idiots"?? (rhetorical question, obviously)

Porcupines pose no offensive "threat" to would be predators...

But "smart" predators think twice before farking with porcupines.


There, right there is the problem. You are counting on, making laws for, and regulating a group where 50% are of below average "smart".
Rethink.

Wait. WHAT???

No AR-15? This is news to me (checks google news).

OMG! This does not support the Assault Weapons Ban agenda!!!

Diane Feignstein must be inconsolable, as yesterday's ecstasy has been slapped with the cold reality of today.

That poor, poor woman.

Let me put it another way:

If Feignstein, Obama and the other gun-grabbers were (dogs/wolves/coyotes - whatever), they would be campaigning to have porcupines de-quilled.

It's a Biden approved shotgun and the shooter isn't a cracker. As predicted the mods' interest in the story is waning rapidly.
