That whole week isn't going to work for me, I have a circumcision thread and an abortion thread going on and I'm expecting a sudden death in the family. Can we either push it back a week or move it up a few days?

"White man

"Looking at the past 30-plus years of spree- and mass-shootings, this is the easiest trend to spot. Nearly two-thirds of the 67 incidents -  65.7 percent - were at the hands of a white person."


Well, considering that over most of the the past 30 years, whites have made up more than 65.7% of the population, I'd say that "whites" are not doing their fair share of the mass shootings.

Tighten up, you white SLACKERS!

Dusk-You-n-Me: This is one for the record books.


It was by definition a gun free zone.  Only the cops (MPs) had guns and they were concentrated at the gates.  He by-passed those MPs because he had a govt. id and the unions don't like metal detectors so he never had to go through one.  Then when inside a less secure area he isolated a lone MP and killed him for his weapon.  He could have done the same with a box cutter at that point.  With the MPs weapon he then killed another 10 people.
So I'm just going to copy this over to my clip board now so I can comment on your next repost of the same shiat.

Elegy: djh0101010: It really boggles my mind and/or offends me that my repeated suggestions that we put criminals who use guns in jail for 5 years minimum, typically get NO responses.

Supporters, please comment.  Detractors, please think, and if you have a coherent point, please comment.

I would really love to see a judicial system where criminals who are convicted of crimes, and who used a gun in said crime, would spend 5 years minimum in jail, mandatory.  I'd be interested in ANYONE who can tell me that this proposal would not benefit society.

Move to Florida. Mandatory 10-20-life for felonies committed with a gun.

Something tells me most Farkers would object to modeling their state's laws on Florida law, however.


Well, it is Florida. If I was dying a horrid, painful death from cancer and scientists employed by the State of Florida found a cure that was not only painless and free and could only be administered by having sex with Miss America 2014 I would still probably decline because, you know, Florida and all that.

ole prophet: Mrtraveler01: SithLord: TotallyHeadless: What's with all this "gun free zone" crap everyone keeps spouting? This last one just had the guy shoot a security guard and took his gun. Why is there this belief that the shooters target "gun free zones"? I don't see the pattern to support that assertion.

Because in gun-free zones, the common, law-abiding person is unable to defend himself, instead relying on hired, sometimes incompetent, security if it exists at all.  Schools, theaters, military offices are all "gun free zones" and have been the recent locations of mass casualty shootings.

So how come the Navy Yard shooting didn't happen in one of these "gun free zones"?

Because he grabbed the guns of the only people the government allows to have guns at the location?


Isn't this the exact same thing the NRA wanted to do with our schools to prevent shootings there?

Nearly two-thirds of the 67 incidents - 65.7 percent - were at the hands of a white person. Only one was committed by a female. It is indisputable: white men are most likely to commit such acts, though not exclusively.

This is a misunderstanding of the statistics.  Men are most likely to commit such acts, white people aren't.  2/3 of the shootings were by white people, but 2/3 of the country is white.  Saying that white people are most likely to commit mass shootings is like saying that white people are most likely to breathe and eat food.  It's most likely that a mass shooter will turn out to be white, but white people are no more likely to commit mass shootings than those of other races.  There are just more of them.
