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.

TeaEarlGreyHot: Not really going to get into the whole gun debate, but here's the thing:

We live in a free and open society.  You can pass stricter gun laws.  You can check backgrounds, register, license people, whatever.  Someone wants to kill someone else, they're going to find a way to get a hold of a firearm, with enough determination.  There's no guarantee of safety, unless you want to live on permanent lockdown.

And I consider a society in which the government and law enforcement has firearms, and citizens can't have them, to be a society on permanent lockdown.

All accounts so far indicate this was the murder of an individual, not a nutjob mass shooting.  Murders aren't peculiar to the United States, but because this happened on a college campus in a building full of undergrads, it's going to get lumped in with all of the other "school shootings."


Finally... someone reasonable about things.  

This was not a school shooting.  This was a shooting that took place at a school.  There IS a difference....


And either you want to be free, or you don't.  Cost of freedom, or else go on lockdown.

Oh well then I guess that makes it okay.

It doesn't change my point that violent crime in the US is waaaaaaay down.  So what's your point?


On the contrary, we were comparing different years in just the United States.  My graph does not exclude any information for that argument, it includes extraneous information (other countries).

Your graph is unsourced and as valid as a crayon drawing done by a 2nd grader.  It admits it purposely omitted information.

My graph is per 100k people.  Do you know what a rate is?

Of course.  And do you see that per-capita, our rate has gone DOWN since 1964?  You remember the 50s and 60s.. yeah, those are the times when everyone thinks of how violent the united states was....

You also fail to address the information in the video showing the US isn't as violent as all the haters like you say.  UK, the holy grail for anti-gunners is nearly 4x more violent than the US in terms of rape/assault/robbery/etc.



Well, if you own a gun, your kids are more likely to die by a firearm than if you got rid of it.

Poppy cock.   Anti-gun make believe, unsourced, complete and utter bull crap.   We'll require a citation on that on...and not from Motherjones or other hysteria manufacturer.

lennavan: Mr.BobDobalita: haws83: lennavan: haws83: Speaking of arbitrary, your graph there excludes such peaceful places as Mexico

Excluding Mexico because there is a huge war with the drug cartels there that would skew the data is hardly arbitrary.

You mean you want to discount violent nations from a discussion of violent nations?

Shall we take out all drug-related assaults out of the US statistic and see where we rank?

Exactly.   It's pretty well known a very high percentage of gun deaths is drug and gang related.  Lennavan uses the excuse of removing mexico because of their drug cartel war... well guess what, IT SPILLS OVER TO HERE TOO.  Many people say the cartels are a direct reason there's so much murder in Chicago currently as they try to take over with their people and use it as a hub for distribution.  They're killing a lot of the existing dealers and what not to replace them with their own.

Some say if you took out gang and drug related murders, the total would be reduced 75%.  So how about since it's ok to remove mexico wholly because of their "drug war" let's do the same with the US statistics.

Also, as the videos I showed talked about, most of the violence in teh US comes out of the big cities.  Lumping the rest of the country with that and calling the whole country violent is less than honest.

Remember how this discussion began?  You arbitrarily chose 20 years as your metric.  When I posted a graph that showed more than 20 years, rather than explain why you chose 20 years, you showed everyone your bright shiny new red herring.

I get it, you're terrified someone is going to take your guns away and you'll be left crying in the corner, all alone and that's why we can't have an adult conversation.  I'll let you two cuddle each other.


I didn't arbitrarily choose 20 years....  the dude in the video I posted did... guess you didn't watch it.

And we already talked about your graph... and how it purposely excludes info...   and how it also doesn't define what "assault deaths" is.  

The last time the number of murders that took place in 2011 was matched, was in 1969 when we had 110 million less people in the US.  So we've got the same number of murders ~14,500 and 110 million more people...  but people like you want to trumpet like there's some sort of violent crime wave.

You're just wrong.  

http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.htm 

Also, then you have to resort to name calling and personal attacks to boot.  I'm certainly not terrified.  Crime is down.  However, crime IS REAL... and I don't fancy being beat by 4 guys with crow bars, which actually happened to me.  Also, now that I have small children, it is my RESPONSIBILITY to be able to protect them from such random attacks and violence.  Am I terrified and paranoid that it will happen?  Of course not.  Do I admit it's a possibility and know such first hand?  Yep.  Therefore, I've taken precautions to attempt to ensure I can better defend myself and my loved ones in the future.  

Looks like I win.

Bear in mind also that it took a couple hours before any significant details were confirmed. For a significant part of the time between the event (noon) and the press conference (2:30pm), various rumors about additional shooters were floating around without much to differentiate them from the reports that turned out to be true.

Perhaps the national news outlets could have held off on reporting until the story was known, but nobody wants to be late to the game if it turns out to be a major headline. As a local (my office is two buildings over, connected by tunnels) who was watching the littlest one at home when this unfolded, I was grateful that the local news outlets provided some real-time coverage. (Especially because, aside from their text-message alerts, Purdue did a pretty poor job making information available---their website didn't mention the event until about 20 minutes after the text alert went out, and the page they linked to was non-responsive for another hour after that.)


I don't know what the press is supposed to do when you have a campus SMS go out at 12:15, and the twitsphere and facepalm all abuzz by 12:20.  What would you do?  Ignore it all and wait two hours for the press conference, or try to be a voice of sanity and known facts in a sea of social media rumors and chaos?  Everyone is going to flip on the TV to see what the hell is going on.  Kudos to channel 6 for having SOMETHING on the air.

Right where the long slide begins in your graph through to today 20 million concealed permits have been issued and 48 states have relaxed their ownership regulations.

And gun crime has fallen 50%.

Do I believe this is what caused gun crime to fall?  No  In fell despite a massively greater availability of firearms.  Ergo, firearm regulation either lax or strict has NO EFFECT ON GUN CRIME.  Therefore, passing tighter gun control regulation is only a hardship to law abiding citizens.

Why is this so hard to understand?

I get that it happened at a school, but there is a drastic difference between a person shooting up a school full of children, and a person shooting a specific person at a school, or on campus.  Hell, Purdue's campus is so big, that you could kill a guy behind a bar and not realize that you're on campus, then the media is gonna have a school shootingasm.

This killing is absolutely no different than any other murder that takes place every day across the country.  A person with an axe to grind with a specific other person kills them.  The difference only being that it happened at a "school" and not in a house, or in the street, etc.  The only reason it happened at a school, was because the shooter knew where to find the victim.

Yes, it's traumatic that he walked into a classroom full of other students and shot one of their classmates.  I get that those people are going to require stress counseling and what not.

There needs to be a distinction between what happened today at Purdue, and what happened at Newton, Virginia Tech, Columbine, etc.  Those were legitimate school shootings (i.e. indiscriminate killings, large body count goals, etc), this was a murder where the opportunity to commit said murder arose on a school campus.

At the same time, as my wife (full disclosure: she's a Purdue grad, was in another building) pointed out, this isn't just like he tracked the guy down off-campus and shot him on some side street.  He did this in a very public place, where people have an expectation of being safe.

There are lesser victims: the students who went through the traumatic experience of seeing someone they knew violently ended in front of them, and they will need to go through counseling.  It's not just some guy shooting some other guy.

I'll bite...since 1991 guns have contributed a pretty steady 66-70% of a steadily decreasing overall murder count in the US.  That means that for the past 23 years, if you were murdered, the odds have been the same for whether it was with a gun or not.  Overall fewer people have been murdered, which means fewer people per year have been murdered with guns each year for the past 23 years on average (trend line).

Gun violence isn't getting worse, media spotlighting and the 24 hour news cycle is desensitizing us.

Disgruntled Goat: if there's anything involving a person with a gun near an educational institution


Generally most of the people at educational institutions are younger or outright kids. When you hear about bad stuff happening as you send your kids off to school each day, its hard. You want to protect them in every way possible, and you think "what if it happened here?" When Newtown happened a lot of parents, myself included, were very anxious to see our kids that day. And what of the employees?  My father is a substitute teacher in OK---at a school where a kid came into the school and blew his own head off. You damn bet I was pretty interested in finding out if he was ok, especially in the early phase when we didn't know that others were ok. Luckily he wasn't working that day. Yes, its perfectly natural and reasonable for parents to freak out about guns and schools.

Murders happen in this country every single day. It is reality, and always has been in my lifetime.
Had this not been picked up and gone national (for no reason other than the university location), would you have known or cared? No.

Good thing pretty much nobody is trying to do that, huh?

TeaEarlGreyHot: ...it's going to get lumped in with all of the other "school shootings."


That's because it is one. That's how datasets work. It's a shooting at a school, therefore it's a school shooting. If you want to differentiate between mass and singular killings, that's an extra, separate criteria.

TeaEarlGreyHot: Murders aren't peculiar to the United States...


Murders in the U.S. are double the average for OECD countries and murder by firearms is behind only Mexico - you know, that country currently involved in a long-waged drug war between the military and multiple massive cartels - as far as OECD countries go.

Murder isn't just "not peculiar" in the U.S. We're world leaders in murders and gun violence when it comes to developed nations. Those actual, hard numbers are part of the reason some of us tend to think maybe there's a bit more we could do to curb the problem without unduly restricting anybody's rights.

But, alas, gun ownership is the one and only right in the U.S. that apparently is absolute, so here we are and here we'll stay.

One starts to wonder, does this constant headlining of any crime with a gun (except for those poor folks in the inner city - the news doesn't care about them) start turning into a self-generating cycle?  Meaning, does constantly making anything gun-related a headline give the unbalanced ideas on how to get attention?

Do we know the shooter's political affiliation yet?  This is the most important part of any shooting story, and I will be awaiting this news with bated breath.
