can we stop calling shootings that happen to take place on a school where the person is obviously just taking out someone they know/ murdering one person "Another School Shooting!"?

/hate my local news

Igor Jakovsky: Its a STABBING but that hasnt stopped the derp brigade from showing up. Also Im guessing the mods wont edit the headline because an active stabber thread just wont generate the traffic that an active shooter thread will.


But now we get to use it to see who likes to gnash teeth and wail without even reading the article, which is like 83% of farkers.   It's almost always the same ones who "have no hope any more" "why bother" etc.  Someone else can go deeper into motivations.

Into the blue again: DeathByGeekSquad: Into the blue again: http://shootingtracker.com/wiki/Mass_Shootings_in_2014

The fun part about that site is that there is no set definition of 'mass shooting'.

4 or more people shot is a mass shooting.


Nonsense, all people have mass.

Epicanis: mschwenk: eagles95: apotheosis27: Days since last shooting: 0


/sigh

We will have to change this to Hours since last shooting

You mean stabbing.

I'm currently imagining an assault-handgun that fires knives...

/This makes a bayonet redundant, so a "pit-bull" is strapped below the barrel instead
//I'd be happy to accept a government grant to develop this weapons system concept


I prefer the dogs that have bees in their mouth and shoot bees at you. Or sharks with frickin laser beams.

Sure, if you want a weapon for a little girl, or need to kill rats.  Real men use the FRANKLINATOR!  Invented by Ben Franklin for real patriots!

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.


Because 4 people being shot is only a problem when they're the right kind of people.

The information that it was a stabbing and not a shooting was added around 9:30
 
2014-06-06 10:07:03 AM  

Mulchpuppy: kittyhas1000legs: verbaltoxin: The suspect hasn't shot anybody. It was a stabbing. The facility issued an alert that is the same for an active shooter though, because there isn't one for an active stabber. So we've managed to go more than 1 day in the US without a mass shooting. Yay, America.

The day is young. Give it a few more hours.

I just wanted to proudly state that I refreshed comments before submitting a comment, and as a result didn't copy this post damn near word for word.

/it's the little things


You're also not the only one who also thought the exact same thing when they read that.

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.

ikanreed: tricycleracer: If I lived in a different country and was planning my summer vacation, I'd probably just cross USA off my list of possibilities.

No joke: many countries warn their tourists coming to the US about gun violence.


Even when violent crime is just as common in those countries. Gun crime is mostly an issue recolving around gang issues. Gangs have guns in Europe, they just don't make the news as often.

In fairness, the article has been updated since it was submitted. Originally it said there was an active shooter.

If you are a gangbanger or someone involved in criminal activity and you get shot, hell if 10k of you get shot while performing criminal activity i dont give a fark about your life.

You can have a machine gun. They're just crazy expensive and require a lot of extra paper work.

Hey, another shooting that will keep the anti-gun nuts entertained. One thing the anti-gun nuts will not tell you is they spend hours on end drooling over the non-stop coverage of a shooting. Anti-gun nuts love to hear about another shooting since they believe it furthers their cause, without non-stop coverage of shootings anti-gun nuts would not have a leg to stand on.

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.
 
2014-06-06 10:10:15 AM  
And there are people out there who think ubiquitous firearms are what keep "gubmint" from "taking away our freedumbs" or something. Uh huh. Well what about the freedom the rest of us have not to live in a perpetual mass murder society? Fark your "rights" to deadly weapons. And fark you too if you think you have a "right" to force this kind of third-world murderocracy on the rest of us.

Thunderpipes: Gun availability has not changed, actually has gotten tougher since I was a kid by far. Gun homicide is actually down.

So why are guns such a problem now? Maybe because we hear of every single shooting as it happens?

Teach kids not to be bad people, problem solved.


You aren't wrong.

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.

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.

I really tend to doubt it. Knock yourself out. I prefer to say something they'll have to think about for a minute for the lulz.

"Well, I understand where you're coming from, but as a romantic tribalist living in a post-boom republic that requires a certain amount of latitudinal pragmatism..."

Then you take a breath, and while they think, talk about guns (form, function, price or preference, not politics). Brings it right back around.

"Oh, hey, is that a Sig? How do you like it?"
