Mass shootings were never bi annual events.

Mass shootings occurred all the time, the majority of them is when someone kills their spouse, kids and self.

What was bi annual was the spree killer.....but who is content with only having 2 sensationalist stories a year, that never helps push an agenda, so they now make sure they report every shooting that the FBI counts under a mass shooting criteria which is 4 people shot.

So now every bad gang shooting, every drug deal gone bad (like the one from black bike week in myrtle beach last week) every domestic incident where 4 people are shot is reported on so you confuse it with an Aurora theater or Sandy Hook type event.

Giltric: Target Builder: Is this really news?

Sure, when mass shootings were a biannual event they were newsworthy, and maybe still when they ended up as biannual events, when they got to bimonthly the newsworthiness really dipped, and even moreso when they started happening bimonthly. When they started being a biweekly event, and then even turned into biweekly events... it's just shiat that happens these days.

Mass shootings were never bi annual events.

Mass shootings occurred all the time, the majority of them is when someone kills their spouse, kids and self.

What was bi annual was the spree killer.....but who is content with only having 2 sensationalist stories a year, that never helps push an agenda, so they now make sure they report every shooting that the FBI counts under a mass shooting criteria which is 4 people shot.

So now every bad gang shooting, every drug deal gone bad (like the one from black bike week in myrtle beach last week) every domestic incident where 4 people are shot is reported on so you confuse it with an Aurora theater or Sandy Hook type event.


Yup. This has actually been going on sinve the late 1800's, probably earlier. Bombs and arson have been a more common weapon in mass killings though.

lenfromak: img.fark.net


I wish I lived in your world, where no crime happens except in "gun-free" zones. Then I too could pretend domestic violence murders don't exist, a friend didn't shoot his best friend over a plate of left overs, a teenage boy didn't shoot his brother in an argument, then kill himself when he realized what he'd done. A 3 year old didn't shoot his 18 month old brother, a 6 year old didn't shoot his grandfather.

But that was all in the last 7 days. Let's ALL pretend no crime happens unless "gun free" is posted. Well except all that crime that WOULDN'T have happened were a gun not present.

You are an asshole and you are ruining America.

Wow. All these incidents just happen to be taking place during my 10-day wait to pick up my first gun.

Let me qualify myself and put others at ease: a) I live in a rural area, and I was recently robbed; b) I got a .357 revolver for home defense, not some high-capacity pistol or AR-15; c) I am a white guy, but I'm not crazy.

Still, it's just kinda weirding me out.

On a related note, at every gun store I've been to I've had to put up with anti-Obama, anti-liberal small-talk from derping rednecks who assume I'm one of them. I just smile and nod. I've been tempted to fark with them and say I'm a socialist (I'm actually registered Green), but there are guns arounds and I'd probably be shot.

So what should have changed after Newtown that would have prevented this stabbing of a single individual?

Meh it's America someone says there was a shooting and it's pretty hard to change minds as getting shot isn't exactly rare in the states.

As for a shooting today? its still early and a friday so grocery stores, movie theaters and the road ways are going to be packed with people. Some armed and some insane and some armed and insane. Since stopping those people from getting guns or weapons is socialism. The only good thing is summer vacation so that means one target rich environment is empty.

You must be so thrilled to be correct about something.

What almost certainly happened was that the campus was shut down using the same protocol they use for an active shooter.  I've worked at an institution.  If they want us to lock the doors and stay away from the windows and move the clients to the center of the building, we just get a phone call that says "possible active shooter" so they can hang up and call the next building.  It's quicker than "someone got stabbed and we don't know if they've got a gun or if they want to break in."  If someone texts their boyfriend or something and they call the press, that's what gets out first.

And again, we're getting one mass every 7-30 days.  The "facts" aren't otherwise flattering to you, bro.

Giltric: MFK: Giltric: Target Builder: Is this really news?

Sure, when mass shootings were a biannual event they were newsworthy, and maybe still when they ended up as biannual events, when they got to bimonthly the newsworthiness really dipped, and even moreso when they started happening bimonthly. When they started being a biweekly event, and then even turned into biweekly events... it's just shiat that happens these days.

Mass shootings were never bi annual events.

Mass shootings occurred all the time, the majority of them is when someone kills their spouse, kids and self.

What was bi annual was the spree killer.....but who is content with only having 2 sensationalist stories a year, that never helps push an agenda, so they now make sure they report every shooting that the FBI counts under a mass shooting criteria which is 4 people shot.

So now every bad gang shooting, every drug deal gone bad (like the one from black bike week in myrtle beach last week) every domestic incident where 4 people are shot is reported on so you confuse it with an Aurora theater or Sandy Hook type event.

yeah yeah, Giltric, we know. You have a gun fetish and will go to great lengths to minimize all of the killings that happen just so you can continue to fondle your firearms.

Well if it is such a violent world out there with mass shooting happening every time someone blinks then why would you want to disarm me? By the rhetoric that gets spouted by the gun control types you just further reinforce that I need a gun.

you don't "need" a gun. You "want" them. You "covet" them. You really really "love" them. But you don't "need" one.

Yes, being a French tourist in the middle of Mississippi is much safer.

det0321: topcon Nevermind the fact if it WAS a shooting, homicides by guns have been dropping for over 20 years.  But hurr, let's keep feigning anger over shootings.

Shootings still seem significant, per this chart, so your enthusiasm may be premature.

Yeah, the murder rate seems to be falling, but the proportion of murders which are committed with guns are about the same (between 65% and 69%).  Saying that gun murders are going down without mentioning that all murders are going down and the percent of murders which are committed with guns are about the same is misleading.

When they started being a biweekly event, and then even turned into biweekly events... it's just shiat that happens these days.

And fark you too if you think you have a "right" to force this kind of third-world murderocracy on the rest of us.

Hey, cletus, I hate to break it to you, but the murder rate keeps going down.

http://www.fark.com/comments/8286906/Gun-homicides-have-actually-gon e- down-once-again-proving-Fark-liberals-wrong-about-gun-control

And if that's true then it's obviously because we have guns everywhere. It just makes sense. I mean, I've noticed that the more insecticide I use, the more insects I have. The more fat I eat, the thinner I become. The more alcohol we drink, the more sober we are. It all makes equal sense so there's definitely a correlation here.

I did not claim nor do I think the presence of guns is why the murder rate is dropping and HAS dropped since the early 90's.  It is, however, a fact, which I know you can't stand being true.


Well I'm glad that we can agree that my goal and desire is for there to be more innocent people murdered. Clearly that's what I want.

I'm glad if the homicide rate is dropping, of course. And if it is then it's doing so in spite of the ubiquity of deadly firearms, and would almost certainly drop much farther in their absence. I hope it continues to fall despite the firearms-worshiping wild west town society we've been forced to live in.

A complete ban on all magazine-fed semi-automatic rifles, with mandatory surrender of currently owned rifles, is unreasonable and is Constitutionally dubious.

The state of California, which the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence ranks "highest" in their gun control idealism, could not even succeed in passing a ban on the transfer of magazine-fed semi-automatic rifles without a confiscation clause.

Satan's Superfluous Nipple: amyldoanitrite: Wow. All these incidents just happen to be taking place during my 10-day wait to pick up my first gun.

Let me qualify myself and put others at ease: a) I live in a rural area, and I was recently robbed; b) I got a .357 revolver for home defense, not some high-capacity pistol or AR-15; c) I am a white guy, but I'm not crazy.

Still, it's just kinda weirding me out.

On a related note, at every gun store I've been to I've had to put up with anti-Obama, anti-liberal small-talk from derping rednecks who assume I'm one of them. I just smile and nod. I've been tempted to fark with them and say I'm a socialist (I'm actually registered Green), but there are guns arounds and I'd probably be shot.

From your post, I figure you have small girly wrists so, a .357 was probably not a good choice for you.


The only person of the female persuasion I've lent a .357 revolver to, who couldn't cope with firing it is my mom. It isn't her wrists. She's just old and frail.
