Lorelle: ChaosStar: Lorelle: ChaosStar: Lorelle: Click Click D'oh: Lorelle: Funny, it didn't stop the shooting that occurred today, nor did it stop a mass shooting in 2010 that resulted in 3 deaths.

You had to go back to 2010 to find 3 firearms deaths and you are really going to trumpet this as the failure of firearms proliferation to create safety?  Meanwhile, in Chicago...

If you're going to claim that more guns = less crime, then why is crime and the number of shootings so high in Chicago??

Because it's the criminals that have the guns?
I know you knew this and were just being intellectually dishonest, but I figured I'd answer anyway.

You believe that every gun owner in Chicago is a criminal??

I do not, and again, you knew this, but please continue with your logical fallacies in an attempt to make your assertion that guns are bad valid.

Some days,  it's like shooting fish in a barrel. :D

/I have always been in the understanding that anything above 4 or five is considered "mass".  As far as i know, there is no fixed number, but generally, i have seen 4 or 5 to be the line.

To further elaborate on this, two people shot is company, and three shootings is  a crowd.

Sorry, but you are incorrect: http://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/10-potential-mass-shootings-tha t -were-stopped-by-someone-wit

I know it's buzzfeed but with all the anti-gun derp you've been spouting throughout the thread, it probably won't matter.  All are verifiable.

I have been corrected about this point multiple times.  And I stand corrected.  I didn't personally know of any situation where that happened and it has nothing to do with Mother Jones.

And I don't spout "anti-gun derp." I point out people that are spouting pro-gun derp.  I think there is middle ground between "gun grabbing" and Mad Max society, unlike many black/white thinkers.


When you make a demonstrably false blanket statement that on its face value seems obviously untrue and you could easily verify the veracity of that statement yourself BEFORE screaming that it is true and yet you do not, most sensible people refer to that as derp.

I COULD be incorrect, though.

show me ONE gun shooting where the shooter was a legal gun owner who was level headed, sane, and was legally able to own them.

Show me ONE car accident where both drivers were sober, legally licensed, insured and didn't make any mistakes or take any risks.

Well, this is Georgia, so I am sure there are plenty of instances of multiple-car accidents after someone hits a deer, or a fallen limb from a tree, etc. Or an at-fault pedestrian or bicyclist starts an accident, etc.

 In the entire state of Ohio in 1895, there were only two cars on the road, and the drivers of these two cars crashed into each other.  There was no mention of drugs or alcohol and there were no licenses or insurance available at the time


Clearly a case of negligent discarge on one or both party's side. I've been driving since I was 9 and I've never had a negligent discarge and neither has anyone I know, so i think that's probably a fluke.

A couple days ago in Rome, some guy shot four people in a bar.

Personally, I'm for guns everywhere.  I think bars should have a community gun pile at the door and you can just grab a piece to hold why you enjoy your beverage.  I seriously want everyone draped in guns at all times so when people keep getting shot I can stop hearing about how more guns is always the answer.

People are getting shot all the time anyway, so it's not like it makes a difference one way or the other.  It's a level of violence we've just accepted.

Are you kidding me?  They just arrested 5 gang members in Kennesaw for a shooting out there.  Every time I turn on the news there's somebody getting blasted in Cobb County.

That's why I never leave the perimeter.  Not only will you get shot if you go there, the likelihood of being shot in an Applebee's is significantly higher than in the city.  Imagine the horror.  Your friends and family knowing that you go to Applebee's.

Bit'O'Gristle: I have said this before, and though some don't agree i don't care. My opinion is as valid as theirs. Here goes.

The guns are out there, there is no getting them back. The world is full of some really farked up people who are just waiting for trigger to set them off to go on a rampage, and kill innocent victims. You have a choice. Choose to be able to defend yourself, and your family / property, or ...choose not to. The police (as i have been one) generally get there too late to do anything about an active shooter. The guy usually guns himself before they get there. So be a victim with NO WAY to defend yourself except cowering like a biatch and hoping not to get shot, or ...running and hiding. Those are your 2 choices.

My daughter is in college, and i bought her a gun to carry in her purse. She now has the option to choose not to be a victim, but...able to defend herself. At least now she has a chance to live, instead of being gunned down like a dog shivering under a table. And isn't it a valid right to be able to defend ourselves? Is there a more natural law that applies to us more? If a guy comes up and slugs you, you are going to use your fists and give him what he just gave you. You're not going to stand there and let him punch you over and over. Why should someone with a gun be any different? In fact, it should be MORE applicable because this person could kill you, not just give you a black eye. The right to defend ourselves is not only a law, its a natural mental stand that one takes in the face of danger.

Hate all you want, but the guns are out there, bought legally or not. The choice to have the ability to defend yourself is totally up to you. If you choose to not have a gun, i totally respect your choice, if you choose to have the ability to defend your life, or other lives, i respect that as well.


Gun buyback programs invalidate your entire post. You have anything else to share with the class?

So you advocate for mental health screenings prior to being allowed to own firearms, right?

If it'll keep the wackos from getting a legal gun, sure.


What if they're sane today and crazy tomorrow?

Then again we have laws that are supposed to keep criminals from getting guns, and that works so well, right?

The laws are a joke and intentionally watered down by politicians that must show fealty to gun groups to attain wealth and political power.

I'm willing to bet that:

1. It's illegal to possess a firearm in that area of the airport, and/or
2. It's against FedEx rules to be armed on the job.

So in this case, it's really about an unarmed pocket of society being vulnerable.

In fact, if you go back and look at the vast majority of mass shootings, they usually tend to happen where guns aren't allowed:  Schools, government buildings, and businesses where carrying is forbidden, and jurisdictions where carrying is often quite restricted or banned completely*.

But then, you *KNEW* that already, didn't you?

*The last "no-issue" state in the US was Illinois.  They are now "Shall-Issue".
