I'm by no means particularly pro-gun, but that's some seriously troll-tastic headline writing, subby.

Have a gun locked in your car /= "Carry a gun on campus"

A student defending themselves against an attacker /= simply "Getting shot"

"I saw the guy getting beat down. The gun practically saved his life," said student Rio Gonzalez.

fark you subby.  You'd rather see a person killed than defend themselves?  fark you in triplicate.

And nobody died, but we get to see the attacker tallied as a victim of gun violence and the event remembered as a school shooting. For the charts, the graphs, the numbers. The anti-gun narrative at work.

Hey Subby, what a brilliant headline to properly illustrate that people shouldn't have guns, not even to defend themselves. Allow me to respond in kind, for your stunning and witty headline.

According to the link posted below, the person who was shot came on campus with another person (both not students) and confronted the third who was a student. Then the two started attacking the student, and one of the attackers had a pool cue with him!

I'm against a gun culture that wants to spread ownership of weapons to all eligible people but that dude had a right to protect himself. Though I wonder how he knew the two suspects and what the argument was over.

Personally, I'm against this rampant anti-pool cue hysteria.

Having said that, we got trouble right here in River City; trouble that starts with 'T' that rhymes with 'P' that stands for 'Pool.'
Oh yes, we got trouble.

Um, the school is changing its policy to  allow guns in cars, subby.

Following an  unarguably legitimate self-defensive shooting in a parking lot, where someone saved their own life/health when attacked.

... though they're mostly doing it because the state recently informed them definitively that they  cannot legally ban guns in cars on parking lots, and that it's always legal to leave your gun in your own car no matter what and any lawsuits related to the university trying to kick someone over it would be an automatic judgement against the institution in the future.


Basically, you seem to have the story exactly backwards there.

I'm confused - it's a Fark headline, and it essentially says the opposite of what's in the article - what's "backwards" about it?
 
2014-02-05 05:38:59 AM
Oh My! Judging from all the fuss in here about the headline, I think I better not read the article then.

Subtard must be right.

According to the anti-gun Fark brigade, firearms are never used in self-defense, only to kill babies if left unattended.  Alternatively they may leap from their holsters and gun down innocent passerby, as obviously happened in this case.

That`s America!

After a shooting in the car park the college has decided to allow more guns into the car park in the hopes it could happen again, hopefully with a fatality next time.

Obviously SUBTARD is pro-gun and is operating some form of double troll. Or just a troll. Nobody could be so stupid in real life as to twist TFA in that headline.

I think both sides of the debate can join together in united derision of SUBBY.

Well, here's the witness quote from the original story a week ago:

"I saw one guy standing up, in the doorway, the door was open, and he was stomping and kicking the guy behind the driver's side. Then I heard, 'pow', a gunshot," said witness Charles Andrews.

Also, the victim has no history of disciplinary problems or criminal record.

This is one of those Fark topics where we have two, alternative, equally hallucinatory realities engaged in some sort of duel for domination of the fantasy landscape.
While I may occasionally attempt to annoy people with an uncomfortable observation or inappropriate joke, I find it's better to stay clear of it. It's a no-win debate.
Frankly, people who are passionate about this, either way, tend to be shallow, and to bore me quickly - let's face it - this is a dead horse, and if you can't smell it, there's something wrong with your nose.

Agreed.

Just instantly incensed by this headline since even the police are saying this appears to be justified self-defense and the guns in cars ruling was actually after the incident.  I'm all about reasoned, or even passionate debate on the topic although I realize it won't move the ball in either direction.  Subby is blatantly trolling though.

Being beat to death in a parking lot is not sufficient cause to defend yourself with a gun.

No one has ever died from a beating.  Ever.

And even if someone were to be killed by a beating that is a fair price to have a world safe from gun violence.

So, the college, if I read right, is going back to the policy of banning firearms in cars on campus. Even though having a gun saved a student from being beat to death? Twatwaffles.

Wow. How spineless do you have to be to pull out a gun during a fist fight? That guy needs to turn in his man card immediately.

There's no excuse to escalate a fist fight into a shoot out. You're supposed to duke it out mano y mano. If you can't handle it, then don't get into fights.

Most people here would be frothing at the lips if a cop shot an unarmed person because they were besting them in a fist fight.

Khakimonkey: Oh My! Judging from all the fuss in here about the headline, I think I better not read the article then.


Actually, if anybody bothered to read the article, the school is NOW changing its policy to ALLOW guns, so students can defend themselves. They recently had a lawsuit filed against them by a pro-gun group and a judge ruled students had a right to legally have guns on school property, so they were already reviewing the policy; the shooting was in self-defense against attackers who were not students, and justified.

The fark headline is just stupid with no basis in reality.

2014-02-05 07:28:49 AM
Virginia has been in a weird place about this for awhile. As I understand it people who are not affiliated with the school in any way can carry concealed on college campus grounds but the school can restrict them to non-assembly areas (i.e. open ground), while retaining the authority to prohibit all students & faculty from carrying. This is what my alma mater does.

So now when you bring a gun to the school parking lot, you can lock it in a case (like it should be already) Lock the case in your trunk, and tell the security guard to keep an eye on your car because it has a weapon in it.

Then when your security guard sees someone breaking into your car, they can stop a shooting.

Also, when the security guard sees YOU stalking over to your car, hellbent on shooting someone, they can stop you too.

You're absolutely right!  Everybody should just take it like a man when they're getting kicked and stomped on by multiple attackers since beatings are NEVER EVER LIFE THREATENING!  Right??!?
And you call being attacked "getting into a fight"?  Are you an idiot?  So if someone breaks into a persons place and they get shot, would you tell the homeowner that maybe they just shouldn't be robbed?  Is this your logic??
