CruJones: Am I the only one who saw the article said the guy has a knife, not a gun?/Active stabber
R.A.Danny: What has Obama done to cause all of these shootings?
Giltric: dr_blasto: Giltric: dr_blasto: Giltric: AspectRatio: Take action now.http://www.bradycampaign.orgFor a knife crime?Well arent you stupid.The only knife crime I've seen is when my wife used one of my nice santoku knives to open a goddamn shipping box from Amazon. She had previously used one to cut up a frozen pizza on a metal pizza pan.She just doesn't understand.One of the best knives i have is over 100 years old with prussian proofmarks. It allows me to cut meat imto paper thin slices that i can lay across a salt block to "cook".My wife was using it to unscrew the back of a remote control for my grandsons remote control car.Im talking so thin you can see through the carpaccio.I feel that pain. Mine is fully capable of making see-through meats. It is a handmade Japanese damascus-blade. She basically did the knife equivalent of taking a Ferrari Enzo on a rally race.Why do they insist on picking the nicest one to use as a goddamn screwdriver?Mine isn't a nice tall blade it has the carving knife profile.[henckelknives.net image 600x425]The household tool kit was in the pantry next to the batteries.... o.O
Witness99: stonelotus: are you idiots still talking about guns in this knife thread?Knives aren't sexy like guns. Stop being a killjoy.

HST's Dead Carcass: Boy, as soon as they announced it wasn't a gun, this thread emptied out. Only further proving the Faux Outrage of each side and their willingness to use tragedy to score political points against one another.
Snarfangel: I've heard of medical specialization, but an entire hospital dedicated to bellybuttons seems a bit extreme.
give me doughnuts: msqualia: Nidiot: msqualia: fatty.fauntleroy: 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.There've been two mass shootings in as many weeks. You can't blame people for believing there might be another one and still being resentful from the last couple.Judging by the comments still coming in, reading and getting facts is not what a certain group of people is interested in.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.And we have been for decades:[www.boston.com image 481x289]This is not a recent phenomenon.
Witness99: 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.
menschenfresser: topcon: menschenfresser: 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.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-controlAnd 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.

youmightberight: So no gun just a knife.
Thunderpipes: About time we ban all knives. Getting tired of this knife violence. Knives are only good for killing people. Can cut carrots with a butter knife, no reason for "assault knives" with their pointy tips and sharp blades.

Giltric: R.A.Danny: What has Obama done to cause all of these shootings?He stirred the pot and told everyone to go get in peoples faces a couple years ago.
Delta1212: I like how when I go to the US section of Google News to see if there are any more articles about this, the very first stories at the top of the page is about the shooting... that took place yesterday in Seattle./Actually, I don't like that.
theorellior: MFAWG: Jesus H farking Christ, what the fark is going on out there?This is the culture we wanted in the US. Guns and violence are the solution to everything. Anything else is non-spanking pussy liberal claptrap. You best just sit back and enjoy it.
browntimmy: Jesus, crazy people, have some dignity and just jump off a bridge or something.
LancePGH: At least it's at a medical center. Any victims will immediately be put on the waiting list.
kronicfeld: The only thing to stop a bad medical center with a gun is a good medical center with a gun. Someone attach a howitzer to Johns Hopkins and airlift it in.
