lennavan: GanjSmokr: lennavan: This just shows we need more guns.

Or more laws against shooting people.

Since those are obviously the only 2 things we can do, one of them should work, right?

We already have laws against shooting people.  That's why we need more guns.  The only way to reduce gun crime is more guns.


Well, we obviously don't have enough laws against shooting people or this wouldn't have happened.

I think it's time to start thinking outside of the box.  Is there a way that tax cuts and deregulation could solve this?


Now we're talking - I like thinking outside of the box...  Maybe the TSA could get involved in some way?

Lenny_da_Hog: MyRandomName: Have the farklibs blamed this on the tea party yet?

Don't be silly. Teabaggers couldn't get into Purdue.


Oh, how I wish that weren't true.

Somacandra: Not to seem too oblivious, but what is the deal with chickens here? Did I miss 'let's characterize everything in terms of chickens' day?


Yeah; there's a $10,000 prize for the best Rhode Island Red Buff Orpington.

So, everyone has been describing everything in chickens.

/ for example; I drove 70,000 chickens to work today.

Rapmaster2000: Ed_Severson: Rapmaster2000: There was a shooting there in '95 when I was a sophomore.  Some kid was selling coke out of Wiley and he shot the RA who caught him.

Not that it's of any consequence, but it was 1996. I was a freshman living at Cary at the time.

Huh.  Guess I was a junior.


You guys did find a new source for coke, right?

Etchy333: I'm waiting for the day when there's a school shooting that is resolved not by police, but by another crazed gunman that was also planning a mass shooting that day.

moike: navyjeff: GardenWeasel: Best Princess Celestia: At the engineering school? Sounds like someone didn't pas the weedout classes.

As an alumnus, I'm guessing an engineering student snapped ala VT.

Probably true, since it happened in the electrical engineering building. It's a tough major.

As an engineer, if I had a dollar for every time I wanted to put a few rounds into a machine that wouldn't behave...


You knew what you were getting into, you married her...
 
2014-01-21 01:35:44 PM
Electrical Engineering building? I'm gonna make a wild guess here and say that some hot girl entered the building and a dispute erupted among students to go and help her out (most likely direct her toward some other building).

/Wait, I need to know if this was a individual nutjob or a terrorist first

R.A.Danny: coeyagi: Why don't we hear about this kind of thing on a regular basis in Europe?

Why didn't we hear about this stuff anywhere 50 years ago?


Because, back then journalists had integrity.

/ also, networks didn't have 24 hours a day to fill with crap

// also, all of our nuts were locked up in looney bins

Fubini: Crime is going to happen everywhere. What is particularly significant about it happening on a college campus?


School shootings are like catnip to the media and to gun control advocates because school shootings tend to have non-minority victims. It is the gun crime version of "missing pretty white girl syndrome." They don't care at all about common gun crimes because they are racists.

Great idea!  Maybe throw in a few more bank bailouts too and repeal Obamacare.

Somacandra: forteblast: Find the guy and boil 'er up

Purdue is the "Boilermakers," right? I get that.  But everyone just sorta knows a brand of store chicken is called "Perdue?" Obviously I'm not getting the core concept here.


The university's benefactor and namesake is John Purdue (1802-1876)
The chicken company is Perdue Farms founded by Arthur Perdue in 1920

Sounds the same, but no relation

Nope, just stop it here.

There are some very opinionated people who immediately try to turn news stories into gun control threads and I would rather know what happened than see them flap their lips for the umpteenth time.

Sad but true. There are murders almost every night in Chicago, right out in public. How often are they reported on a national basis like this incident?

GoldSpider: Is every shooting now worthy of the national spotlight?


Think of all the TV shows and movies with violent drama people pay to see for entertainment.

Now think of all the internet clicks that sort of thing will generate.

If it's worthy of ad revenue, it's worthy of spotlighting.

Only if white people are involved, if non-whites are killing non-whites the spotlight doesn't care.

Well, seems like this one was over before it got good. Better luck next time Red Team.
 
2014-01-21 01:42:44 PM
Not possible. See, Purdue is a "gun free zone" so this can't happen.

KarmicDisaster: Where are the defenders to tell us that this was just a "routine shooting, fewer than 10 killed".


I've never heard of anyone defending these shooters.

The Chicago Tribune actually has a Shootings News Update section.   Looking at it right now, there were 10 killed in the Chicago area in the last two days.  This happens every single day in every single urban location in the US.

Why no manhunt or Newsflash tag for them?  Where's the outrage and calls for action?  Where are the "community leaders" marching on Washington to demand action against the root causes?   Oh, that's right.  This was at a college and those shootings were just the poors whacking each other out.  There's no money and influence to be had in addressing neighborhood shootings.  If the children of our "benefactors" are threatened though, it's a crisis.

The hypocrisy is sickening.

It was Jay Severson, he was an RA, that was killed. He busted the guy for dealing drugs. That one hot hard, I was an RA at Cary at the time. But it was 96, not 95.

There's some other pictures floating around of that guy with his hood up.

Looks like an AR with a bipod, foregrip, and some sort of optic mounted in front of the carry handle.

Likely not a cop.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries, but authorities had just cleared the building and were searching for victims.

Everyone expects minorities in Chicago kill eacah other, that's just part of the culture. Things like this shouldn't happen on a college campus where everyone is only concerened with higher learning and are not people with emotions that often times make irrational decisions. No one involved in higher education has ever been off kilter, not one bit.
