Rusty Shackleford: R.A.Danny: Now for the lamentation and heartbreak that it was a stabbing and no assault rifles were involved.

To be fair, we don't yet know if the suspect had a gun that shoots knives.


I heard it was a bayonet on the end of a light saber.

I suspect that more than three stabbing incidents have occurred in the previous three days; previous incidents likely received less widespread media coverage, however.

No, it doesn't. Is it sad or normal at this point that my first reaction on reading the headline was: "Who the hell cares" ?

Because I don't. Nothing is ever going to change and it will never stop. If Newtown didn't make a damn bit of difference, nothing will.


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

This was a pretty fun exercise in how the media manipulates the mindset of the masses.  The original story was completely wrong, but those who wanted to get spun up, did...and won't soon spin down.  It's fun to see how that dynamic works.

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.

There is no way he would have killed anybody if he didn't have a gun. Except the people he killed without a gun.

Are you off of your meds?


Well apparently I am, if it was really just a stabbing and not a mass shooting.

Just give it a couple of hours and we'll have a mass shooting. We always do. Just tired of living in a society full of morons who are all armed to the teeth, I guess. I love America and this isn't the one I was born in. This is a parody of it.

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.

Aren't Newsflash headlines known for dispensing with the jokes and just getting the basics of the story right?
 
2014-06-06 10:27:40 AM  
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.
