brantgoose: You scared me, Subby. I thought for a moment you meant re-set the clocks literally.

Daylight Saving Time always kills a few people when the clocks Spring forward, although these may be more than compensated for by fewer deaths when they Fall back. I think we should stop the craziness and ban farking around with the clocks. Same time year round.

Farking around with guns is a pretty obvious no-no also.

The reason why so many mass shooters and suicide bombers are drawn from the white yuppie classes is that unlaid entitled young white men are the douchebag hipsters of the murder world. Black youths mostly shoot each other or are jailed for a few grams of pot or crack before they kill. Entitled young white men can get away with murder both literally and figuratively because they come from good families who are well-to-do.

They can stockpile guns and ammo to their heart's content and nobody dares to ask any questions because the precious snowflakes might get upset. Overwhelmingly male, overwhelmingly white,  overwhelmingly  between 16 and 25, overwhelmingly  privileged, overwhelmingly  narcissistic, overwhelmingly  psychopathic, overwhelmingly  smart-ass, nerdy, geeky, obsessive compulsive, and right wing. These are the assasins, the suicide bombers, the hipsters, the revolutionaries. It's not the poor, the minoritites, and the marginalized who do these things. It's guyz with White People Problems.

SuperNinjaToad: walktoanarcade: Gwendolyn: She safe. Thank god.

Thank goodness.

Fark it, stories like this make me wish for technology that physically prohibits the unlawful carrying of a weapon into a public place.

What I want are devices that can detect and incapacitate individuals that are unauthorized carriers; through TV commeercials and public awareness programs, people will learn that if they pull a weapon near one of the not-yet-invented devices, the device will shoot out a web-like foam, incapacitating the would-be killer until police or security arrives.

My way allows freedom and provides reality based results.

Don't want to be "webbed?"  Don't pull a gun in a public place.

Would not have done a bit of good in he theatre shooting or the Major Hassan shooting and probably a dozen other mass shootings. Not only were they lawful but one was an retired police chief and the other active duty Army.


That guy wasn't a retired chief, just a retired cop

According to a WBAL reporter on scene, one witness described it as a shooting at Zumiez Surf Shop. Shooter shot a female employee, then a male employee, and then turned the gun on himself. Love triangle, and there are two job openings at Zumiez if ya'll are interested.

Well if you want to get technical here, it's probably a double murder with a suicide.

But what actually happened isn't important. It's how we must feel. We need to feel outraged, we need to feel that something must be done, we need to demand immediate action regardless of detractors who want us to get off the emotional high and strike while the iron is hot.

According to current statistics NOT pulled from my ass (CDC)

.....for every person in the USA killed by a gun (accident, homicide and intentional suicide)

16 or more people die as a result of medical malpractice.

In other words:  ANY PERSON LIVING IN THE USA IS ABOUT 16 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE KILLED BY THEIR DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST THAN A F*KKING GUN!!!!

You wus losers can troll all you want. You can over inflate these isolated incidents all you want. Bottom line....there is NO "gun violence epidemic" going on in this country. Period.

Go to CDC website.
"Violence" (which includes all guns, knives, bludgeoning, strangle, assault....etc) as cause of death in the USA usually ranks somewhere around 15th to 16th behind heart disease,cancer,alcohol-accident, auto........

Shotguns are longarms and do indeed fall under AWB's occasionally. Mostly pump shotguns.

The mossberg 590 for example under the original federal assault weapons ban was legal only with 2 of the following features at a time.

Pistol grip.
Adjustable stock.
Bayonet/grenade launcher lug.

You will notice that they never bothered to change the amount of rounds it holds. (Which would just involve placing a wooden dowel in the feed tube and telling people they'll be in a lot of trouble if they take it out.)

1.  Glad to hear your daughter is safe.
2.  I can think about 999 things I'd do if it were my daughter at that mall but posting to Fark about the situation isn't one of them.

Columbia mall is close enough, and related enough to the DC area to have high ranking government, foreign government, and various defense/security people (or at least their kids) who would regularly be at the mall on a saturday. There's no way the mall isn't locked down tighter than Ft Knox right now.

What did your response have to do with my comment?

Getting on the internet to find out what's going on is about the only thing she CAN do. Besides drink I guess.


I'm sorry, I missed the post where she said: "OMG, my kid is at that mall.  Can anyone please inform me what the hell is happening."  Instead we got a post that the kid was there and she was freaking a little.  Let's see what else could she done?  How about calling the police or 911 asking what was going on?  How's about calling her daughter on the cell phone?  How's about staying glued to the local radio broadcast (they must have had non-stop coverage of this event)?  How's about hopping in the car and get as close to the mall as possible to maybe ask a cop what's happening and what's the best thing to do to find out how your daughter is doing?  Like I say, any number of things to do, including drinking or taking a Xanax, but posting to Fark hardly qualifies as anything other than attention whoring.

In all fairness, the Hutus also used old shock absorbers, gasoline, rocks, big sticks and their feet and fists. It was an orgasmic explosion of mass murder. How easy it is to commit heinous acts when working within the protection of a mob. There are an awful lot of people in this world who would go on butcher rampages if they knew they would never be held to account by the simple fact of being an anonymous face in a crowd.

Let 'em shiat themselves. We're gonna discuss it anyway, and hope to actually implement some sensible gun control (such as what the pre-Cincinnati-Revolt-of-1977 NRA actually supported). It's past time we stopped cowering and kowtowing to them.

There's no way the mall isn't locked down tighter than Ft Knox right now.

What did your response have to do with my comment?

Getting on the internet to find out what's going on is about the only thing she CAN do. Besides drink I guess.

I'm sorry, I missed the post where she said: "OMG, my kid is at that mall.  Can anyone please inform me what the hell is happening."  Instead we got a post that the kid was there and she was freaking a little.  Let's see what else could she done?  How about calling the police or 911 asking what was going on?  How's about calling her daughter on the cell phone?  How's about staying glued to the local radio broadcast (they must have had non-stop coverage of this event)?  How's about hopping in the car and get as close to the mall as possible to maybe ask a cop what's happening and what's the best thing to do to find out how your daughter is doing?  Like I say, any number of things to do, including drinking or taking a Xanax, but posting to Fark hardly qualifies as anything other than attention whoring.


In fairness most folks have a pretty good idea if someone wants to murder them. This doesn't sound random.
