With two mass shootings at military installations, it's clear that we need to arm our soldiers.

kronicfeld: feckingmorons: Joseph Zamudio an armed citizen helped subdue the murderer in the Tucson shooting in which Representative Giffords was injured.

You might want to refresh your recollection on what this guy did or didn't do with his gun.


Just taking it out prevented hundreds, nay thousands from dying.  That is the awesome power of the gun.

NickelP: Damn near every shooting in recent memory has been stopped by someone armed.


Yeah.  It's usually the shooter killing himself.

What a coincidence - not a single mass shooting was stopped by gun control laws.

Because People in power are Stupid: I was armed when someone asked me for directions. I was friendly and gave him excellent directions. Little did I know that had I did things a little differently -that guy would have gone on a shooting rampage.


I have almost never been armed when out in public. The lives I could have saved have left me with no will to live. Thank goodness I have a gun.

super_grass: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: super_grass: fire hydrants

Confusing an AR-15 with an AK-47 will get gun nuts laughing you out of the thread but swimming pools, cigarettes, guns and fire hydrants are exactly the same things when they need them to be.

That's tricky thing about analogies. You use them to point out relations, not to identify things literally.


Is that what that was? Keep up the good work.

omeganuepsilon: You conveniently leave out the hoplophobes that don't think any civilian should have a gun. Pretending they don't exist sort of hints at you being less in desire of intelligent gun reform and more along those lines.


Just saying, but googling "hoplophobe" gives roughly the same results as if I'd googled "obamafascist gun grabbing nazi conspiracy liberals hate freedom tranny porn"...

I just know that I can sleep better at night knowing that every time one of these events happens, people can become more entrenched and polarized in their views on the subject, thus ensuring nothing will change.  So at least those deaths aren't in vain.

feckingmorons: DoctorCal: Triumph: What a coincidence - not a single mass shooting was stopped by gun control laws.

The most conservative estimates are around 100,000 - 200,000 preventions per year. The Brady Foundation number is more like 1 million.

I think it is twenty billion. I can make up estimates of things that never happened just as well as anyone else.

What is the methodology of making up numbers of things that don't happen?


It's determined differently in different studies.

The fantasy -- that if YOU had been there with your heroic gun, you would have shot the killer and saved everyone -- is for the moment still a fantasy.
